I have not had any real problem with security. It just kind of bothers me that stuff I did a Google search on shows up on Facebook or other online accounts. I am thinking that Gmail is the big culprit here. I have just created a new email at Mail.com. Any huge problem with that? I need to be able to check the email on my phone. Right now I have an iPhone. Contract is up in a few months and I will probably go with an Android phone, Galaxy Note maybe. Is there an email app for checking imap/pop3 email accounts? I read a thread about startpage. It seems to be Google based. Will it be mining my search queries and directing ads my direction? Basically I use my phone for internet. I have no home internet service. I keep this laptop in my car and connect to a network if I feel a need for a larger screen. Is there a secure way to do internet searches on my phone, without attracting ads? Facebook? Well, it is how I keep in touch with nieces and nephews. I don't want my new email to be connected to Facebook in any way. Just use the gmail for that I guess. Any suggestions are appreciated.
