There's no hiding

So I'm setting up my new laptop. I guess when I downloaded and logged into chrome (which Microsoft tried to talk me out of), it pulled in my saved passwords. I opened myLot, put in my user ID, and this entirely new laptop, on an Edge browser knows what my dang password is. Well, I guess that makes things much easier to set up a new laptop than before, but dang, does the FBI know all this stuff? The department of Homeland Security? I know, it's encrypted, bla bla bla, but it's also kind of disconcerting. PS Why did myLot ban my friend Jimbo in October and then just pay him this month? Inquiring minds want to know.

It is also the same thing when I am using Chrome. Although it can be deleted if you clear the browser history.

Yep, it can. And I only use it for certain passwords, and not financial ones or my email or anything, but still it was a bit disconcerting.

Nothing online is private. If there's a way for it to exist, someone can find it. The trade off for ease of use, is knowing that 'privacy' is a four letter word. Just know that, unless you give someone a reason to search, they aren't likely going to.

He asked be why on facebook. That is a good question. Why did he get paid.

I have never been a laptop person myself but I have come to terms with having mine since I got out of the hosp when I knew I had to have a computer to play with. I have a desktop in the cabin I used ALL the time till I got sick, & being I couldn't get in the cabin at the time I had to get me something to keep my mind busy. I also have a small tablet that I carry around with me while I'm out paying bills so it keeps me entertained that I play games on & do some research's on too. I never thought in my lifetime I would have not just 1 computer but 3 at the same time & in May I'm getting me another 1 to replace my tablet with.

I have a desktop as a backup, but I use the laptop more. Used to be the other way around.
