Here's some information about mylife from wikipedia:
"MyLife (or MyLife.com) is an American Internet company founded by Jeffrey Tinsley in 2002. It provides a subscription based, personal search service. It previously conducted business under the names Reunion.com, Wink.com and Classmates.com. The company has been criticized for its aggressive marketing and billing practices and has been the focus of consumer complaints and a lawsuit." --- I would suggest that telling you there are security threats because your information can be found online might be considered aggressive marketing - However, there are very few people who use computers and the internet nowadays who don't have their information online somewhere - and lots of search engines can find it - I think they are offering to search the net for your details so you know where they can be found - and I guess you will have to pay them for this service - You can't really have an online social life or business these days without giving at least some information out - and there is usually a point at which you need to give real details - I wouldn't worry too much unless you've given out real confidential info to websites that don't really need it, i.e. You have all your real details listed on social networking sites and opt to allow everone to see these (name, address, phone number, workplace, school, date of birth, town of birth, maiden name, pets' names, etc. (things you're likely to use for passwords!)

How do online pharmacies maintain security?


Licensing and accreditation are important attributes to consider when looking for an in-store or online pharmacy. Pharmacies should be licensed for all states to which they distribute drugs.
It is important to make sure an online pharmacy is safe and secure, not only to safeguard personal information but to make sure the drugs being delivered are safe.
Some steps to verify an online pharmacy is legitimate or not :
1) Consumers should not hesitate to call or email the pharmacy to make sure they can talk to a real pharmacist. Many online pharmacies have 24/7 access to a pharmacist.
2) Legitimate pharmacies will always require a prescription from a doctor or licensed healthcare professional.
Also, I will recommend you to undergo through all the online pharmacy reviews before purchasing any medicine online.

What are the Best Cyber Security Companies?


The internet has become an indispensable tool but with it come cyber attacks. All organizations are at risk of being hacked and it is not just money that can be stolen. Data is also very sensitive and with the way businesses are seeing large amounts of customers, confidential customer data is a goldmine for anyone looking to gain new customers. Cyber security solutions are therefore a necessity.
Choosing a cyber security provider should be about what the business' vulnerability and working to fix it and prevent further attacks preferably in real-time. A good solution should be able to warn of impending danger and prevent it as well. Any threats detected should ideally be quarantined so as to ensure the network remains secure at all times.
A good number of companies offering cyber security solutions do a good job of it. JK Technosoft stands out with the Seceon's Open Threat Management platform. Cyber security remains important to every industry and Seceon's OTM provides maximum data protection.

Someone said that they send you twenty-thousand dollars for making a claim for it. Is that true, I checked out the site but it doesn't really say anything.


No one gives out money without a return. Be very careful of scams. Do not give out confidential information like bank account numbers, social security numbers, pass words and personal information. Do not give anyone money upfront. Once again, be very careful!

How safe and secure is Damai website?


Damai.cn possesses the SSL security certificate that can ensure the safe information transmission between you and Damai.cn.
What is an SSL Certificate?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard security agreement designed and developed by American Netscape Communication Company. It applies the public key technology to assist transmission and communication in the following aspects:

1. The confidentiality of information transmission;
2. The completion of information exchange;
3. The non-repudiation of the information;
4. The authenticity of the trader's identity.

SSL technology will automatically activate a "lock" signal on the browser,the "https" in the address bar indicates that an encrypted link has been established between the web server and the browser. During this time, all confidential information entered online by the User, such as credit card number and transaction password cannot be viewed, stolen or modified. The encryption strength of SSL depends on the browser of the customer and supports an encryption of at least 40 digits.

My security answeris my mothers maiden which meagher can you get me in with that


Raymond - If their is a specific site you are trying to login in, i suggest being more specific about your question. like which site, what you've tried before etc.
At the same time, I do not suggest posting login details / confidential information like passwords or mother's maiden names, as that could lead to online seccurity breaches / identity theft for yourself.
Best of luck!

Cant open yahoo mail


This pop ups or notices usually indicates that the SSL or Secure Socket Layer certificate is expired, thus warns you to input such confidential data. But If its a trusted site, you can go on pressing continue or add exception to the site.
