Took them long enough(20 posts)
Well to be sure Yahoo do NOT seem to be doing much about it. I am getting some yahoo stuff with pretty awful links.
I have informed as many as I can re this, but to reinstate hacked yahoo (and hotmail) accounts is not easy.
Over the last few years I have tried to get friends, and clients, to transfer to gmail at least.
Some don't want to do this!
I agree with G.S. I trust Google about as far as I can spit upwind in a stiff breeze.
I can't use Hotmail because *&^%$#@! M$ will not let me use it unless I have ALL my cookies enabled. Like THAT is going to happen!
I don't want to use my internet provided email because I would lose it if I change providers.
The only big one left that I can depend on being around for a while is Yahoo. Depite it's security issues, it's still the lesser of the evils. Changing passwords frequently is the best protection one can have from hacking. My yahoo account has been hacked only once. I caught it pretty fast and fixed by changing the password. If someone I receive emails from shows signs of being hacked, besides telling them about it and how to deal with it, I also change my password as a precaution (granted, I'm probably being overcautious but I'm a coward). Also, if I hear news of a hack in, I change my password.
"I can't use Hotmail because *&^%$#@! M$ will not let me use it unless I have ALL my cookies enabled. Like THAT is going to happen!"
I have 3rd party cookies blocked in Chrome and Iron and can still access Hotmail. What cookies are you blocking and how are you blocking them?
I haven't used IE in years (except to download an alternative browser on a new build), so I have no clue how to setup IE's cookie restrictions. I have my browsers set to disallow any 3rd party cookies and to delete ALL cookies upon closing the browser. Whenever I visit any sites that require any sort of login, I finish my session, close the browser, and run CCleaner. So even if *&^%$#@! M$ drops a tracking cookie, it's deleted before it has anything to track.
I don't trust anyone. Even the HTG website attempts to embed tracking cookies... quantserve.com and crwdcntrl.net. Both try to gather information that is often exchanged between various advertisers and marketeers.
Wouldn't know don't use a chromium browser any more, don't use Linux much anymore either. As for Android...I've never looked might go hunting for it if it exists.
