    I'm sure there's plenty of successful hackings we don't hear about...
    I'm a believer that the majority of hackings are inside jobs.

    The 1 billion users....I've created multiple aliases for email addys.
    My msn.com is used discretionally....
    The rest I use for signing up at websites, like here, stuff like that....

    Why do you use yahoo as your search engine? Google is the best as far as I know. MSN (bing) is as lousy as yahoo search.

    I used duckduckgo.com as my search engine. They don't TRACK you or share your information.

    Same for me. I believe Ringel is the one who turned me on to that search engine; if not him, I know it was someone on this site. :)

    Nope. Has the left blamed Trump and Russia for the hack yet?

    Yahoo and Bing are not updated regularly. I prove that myself several times. From the what I heard ( just a rumor) they steal information from google to save time and money.
    If you sign up to open an account with google with their email gmail...... they can track you and sell your information. But you don't need to open a google account for research.
    Your can also go to your setting look for Google, look for ALLOW LOCATION then click NEVER.
