Beware of Privacy Invasions!!


Here is the language used in the new privacy agreement, thanks to another good ol’ corporate merger between AOL and Yahoo under Verizon = Oath.
"We may collect the information that you provide to us, such as:
Oath analyzes and stores all communications content, including email content from incoming and outgoing mail. This allows us to deliver, personalize and develop relevant features, content, advertising and Services....We may collect your payment and billing information." A notice of the new privacy “agreement” now pops up upon opening the app with a brief description that conveniently fails to mention just how much your private info. can and will be invaded and exploited. The link to privacy controls in this pop up notice, also conveniently, doesn’t work. So to manage what little you do still have control over, you must dig into your settings to discover how. Yet there is no protection from having your data collected and stored including all of your email content! This is an outrage! Protect your right to privacy and boycott Oath, AOL, Yahoo, Fakebook, and all other big tech that is exploiting you!



I really don’t like the way the app is set up for iPad or iPhone. I want to see the entire body of my mail. That side bar takes up nearly half my screen. It should not be locked in place.
Also this new version doesn’t let me sort. I really thought the ability to only see people I know vs everyone was what kept AOL a step above all other vendors. Now your just blanketed with it all even on the desktop version.
On the IPad/phone I have no control of my contacts. Have to go to desk top to add remove edit I can’t even check that the address is correct because it’s to small and no way to preview.
For all the money I’m paying I might as well go free on gmail or something. Very disappointed in the advancement it been more of a take away. Oh yes and I can’t even put my cute tags as my signature it doesn’t know how to save my pictures. Ugh😳🙀

Printing from tablet after clicking link in your email


When clicking a link within your email it's NOT tablet friendly when it comes to needing to print once clicking the link. Example when a return label is sent to your email & you follow the steps, it may show you have an option to print but it does not go through from tablet. So wish this would be fixed!!

I know a true attachment you can download that on a tablet but it can not be done when directed to website from within your email on tablet. Better example: an email about a sale for Bed Bath & Beyond. In that ad you can be directed to see more.
It takes you to their website but it’s not in Safari or Google. If you place an order on that screen there is no way you can print receipt from THAT screen!
Same applies if directed from email say about a recipe that you need to click see more. It does not show a place to print. You have to get out of AOL then use search engine to get to that website to print or even forward that recipe of its entirety to an email.
I hope I have explained this well enough that this can be fixed for all tablet users to print or forward after u have selected to see details from the body of your email.
