Last night, I watched something on youtube in several parts. I have trusted youtube over other sites. But, every time you're on the web, the reality is that there are risks.
Tonight, I was logging into one of my email accounts and I briefly saw a pathway flash through the toolbar. It was a youtube pathway. Red lights went off in my head. So, I started a virus scan right away. Then, I went into my browser settings and cleared all cookies and data. Then, an interesting thing came up. It said that there were 2 users on my computer.
2 users? The second user had a funny name and a hamburger symbol next to it. Hmmm...
I went to my husband and asked if he'd created it.
So, I went ahead and deleted it.
The internet is a scary place. I'm praying and hoping that's all there is to this, but I'll be on my guard for a while. My husband was just telling me last week how important it is to regularly change passwords and make sure information is secure. I wish the world wasn't this way, but it is.
