    Digital Identity Protection

    Thank you so much, but I'm very leery of a company based in Eastern Europe having my private information, considering all of the cyber attacks and hacks U.S. companies and government agencies have suffered lately from that part of the world.

    Digital Identity Protection

    I haven't told Bitdefender that I don't use their anti-virus program for my desktop, only for my iphone. I suppose I can still use their DIP on my desktop? The hesitation I have is that Bitdefender isn't a U.S. based company and it's located in Eastern Europe. I wouldn't want them having my...

    Digital Identity Protection

    It's not a scam. Go to Bitdefender.com and you'll see it listed under their services: Digital Identity Protection. It's a new service and there are many other companies that offer it.

    Digital Identity Protection

    My anti-virus program, Bitdefender, offers digital identity protection. Is something like this worth getting? Some of the features include checking to see if my personal information was exposed in the Dark Web; detect my social media impersonators; find my private information online in both...

    Google's "About Me" More Info

    I wasn't starting a panic. This is a forum for asking tech questions and am assuming we're all adults and capable of determining when something is a serious matter. I think the one that could have caused a panic is you by the way you reacted to my post.

    Monthly bill payment security

    Good evening, I've been wondering which is more secure or safe when paying monthly bills: using my bank's bill pay feature or visiting my various creditors' websites and entering my payment information there myself. I'm uncomfortable typing in my debit or credit card information online and if...

    Google's "About Me" More Info

    I recently sent a Gmail to someone and clicked on my profile picture in the sent Gmail. There was an "About Me" section as well as "Recent Interactions" contained in here. To my shock and horror, actual copies of emails I've sent to other people were shown here. This means that anyone I send...

    Desktop PCs with raised keys in keyboard

    I notice that the new computers only have 2 USB ports. My current Dell Inspiron 15 has 3 USB ports, so that I can connect peripherals. I suppose I can buy a wireless keyboard, but I don't know how to attach one and would prefer wired. Also, do all mechanical keyboards work with all computers?

    S 1 appears in bottom part of monitor

    Hello, Suddenly the caption, "s 1", appears on the screen after starting the computer and the sign-in box doesn't appear, which prevents me from accessing my desktop. Does anyone know what "s 1" (quotation marks mine) might mean and how it got there? I was only able to access the desktop by...

    Desktop PCs with raised keys in keyboard

    Hello, I want to buy a new PC but an essential feature for me is that the keys in the keyboard be a little raised, not flat. I don't know if any laptops come with raised keys, or just desktops. If you can guide me on what PC to buy that has such a keyboard, I'd appreciate it. Also I prefer...

    Problems setting up Gmail in new cell phone

    Good evening, I got a new cell phone Galaxy J2 and have been attempting unsuccessfully to set up my Gmail in the phone. It just doesn't work. Google sends me verification codes both to the Gmail account and another Hotmail account that I have, plus also text messages to the phone and despite...
