    Or Google, or Amazon, or Facebook, or just about any site Russian hackers can access... It can't be that hard if so many small 'PPI recovery' companies can get it...

    The internet is a big place... some vague idea of what sort of things you're looking for and would personally consider cool would be far better and far less creepy than requiring a summary of everyone's internet history and habits...

    yeah yep Yes mmhmm that would be a better question.

    I'll just pose it without framing it correctly, or even really caring for an answer. What's the worst that can happen? Hmm?

    Re: How do you spend your time online?

    I haven't been using it as much as I was and came off Facebook last week as its click bait at the best of times.

    However I use email, forum admin here at HEXUS, watching the retro gaming subscriptions I have on Youtube and I have quite got into some online gaming on PS4 like Destiny 2 & Overwatch.

    Other than that I do have Netflix & Amazon Prime subscriptions which get used often and I do a fair bit of online shopping with Amazon & eBay and also weekly shopping via ASDA & Iceland.

    I think the home shopping stuff is becoming more normal for a lot of people, we placed a HUGE ASDA order yesterday for Christmas (£130 family of four), food & drink and so on as its easier than actually going to the store, you would think that the shops wouldn't be open for months not just 3 days!!

    On this forum... dunno. Depends how 'paranoid' Saracen is feeling, I suppose.
    On some other forums, a ban under suspicion of phishing for data, or somesuch.

    Re: How do you spend your time online?

    HEXUS / bit-tech / PC-Max.de...... obvs
    Shopping, mainly Amazon and the bay
    Youtube, for both advice/tech help and for regular subscribed actvity
    I hate Facebook... don't get it. But I do get, and love, Insta
    Email Skype, essential parts of life
    Lots of browsing and research on the above shopping and tech / advice etc
    Gaming... just as much now as ever
    Iplayer and equivalents
    Waze nav
    Googlemaps
    News particularly Reutuers
    Translations
    Data transfers ie bigger than email text, tranfer a lot of images etc.
    Organisation/Process etc in particular Trello, and Dropbox

    Basically, without the web, I'm screwed for work and tech

    But.. I do love getting away utterly and unplugging occassionally.
