Email providers

Posted on 07/20/2012 9:05:44 AM PDT by rexiesmom

My email provider is upgrading and now demands my date of birth. Any suggestions for a less intrusive, yet secure email provider.


TOPICS: Computers/Internet
KEYWORDS: email

Give them a fake DOB, Jan 1, [year] always works and is easy to remember.

I sometimes put in my son’s year. Or the current year. Or just about anything else.

Probably part of a challenge/response for people that forget their passwords. Doesn’t matter what you give them, as long as you provide the same answer if you have to request a password reset and they ask for your DOB.

Give ‘em “A” date of birth, and just remember it.

Probably to help prevent sexual spam. Just use a fake date.

Thanks for your suggestions. I’ve given them a false date but still plan to change email providers.
