Old, unused email accounts put your security and privacy at risk. With a compromised account, someone can impersonate you, search for personal information, or try the same password on your other accounts.

I have to put my dog in the car almost daily. Between daycare, trips to the park, and the occasional errand, he travels a lot. He isn’t the biggest fan of car rides—and I’m not the biggest fan of his fur sticking to everything—so we’ve had to put in some effort to make the car more comfortable for us all.
One of the benefits of having an unlocked iPhone is that you can switch out your SIM card when you travel. International phone plans are expensive, and it’s often much cheaper to buy a new card and a local data plan than to pay a daily or monthly fee or per-use rate to your carrier.
Despite what Instagram would have you believe, plant parenting is hard. There are so many questions to answer. Are you watering too much? Not enough? Is the light in your space bright, indirect, or low? What is soil rot? Why is everything dying?
If your summer travel plans involve an Airbnb stay, your vacation could get more complicated (and expensive) than you expected.
If you replaced your iPhone battery with a third-party alternative and need your device repaired, you’re in luck: Apple will now service iPhones with third-party batteries, MacRumors reports.
Are you a trivia master? Or an Alex Trebek superfan? You could be on Jeopardy! The show’s application and testing process are open to anyone willing to put their knowledge to the test.
We’ve all had those rushed moments when we’re late for dinner (or the airport) and there are still a half-dozen things to accomplish on our way out the door—including booking an Uber or Lyft.
If you love fonts or National Parks (or both), you’re in luck—you can download the typeface found on park signs for free.
Want to master HQ Trivia on your own time? Google Assistant can help you with that.
Google+ is going away on April 2, which means all of your Google+ content — including pages, photos, and videos — will disappear with it.
I can’t be the only person who’s parted with hundreds of dollars over the years because I forgot to cancel a service at the end of a free trial (hello, Skillshare) or let subscriptions drag on in the hopes I’d get around to using the product.
Android users, rejoice: Your Twitter app now has an easy fix for that annoying “best tweets first” timeline layout.
This winter kicked off with record-setting snow and freezing temperatures — and we’re not even halfway through, which means many of us have weeks or months of snow (and snow shoveling) to look forward to.
‘Tis the season for commercials featuring your favorite smart home speaker showing off what it can do—which means you may have experienced your Google Assistant, Alexa, or Siri responding to questions that come from your TV. And it’s annoying to have to shout, “Hey Google, stop,” or the equivalent phrase for your…
Alexa has long been able to respond to requests for specific music genres, moods, and playlists. Now, she can also help you curate and personalize said playlists and remember your preferences for the future.
Remember those scenes from 21, Ocean’s Eleven, and any film about cheating at or stealing from a casino? The ones in which a security team is trying to track the crooks’ activities across the floor using camera feeds?
Next time you find yourself scrolling through your streaming queue and thinking that there’s nothing worth watching, try the Library of Congress’s National Screening Room.
Not all of us are lucky enough to have unlimited data plans, which can lead to a lot of anxiety around rationing a monthly allotment to web browsing, video streaming, and other mobile activities. Going over a data limit costs a small fortune, and it can be hard to keep track of where all that data went.
If you think too hard about the sharing economy, things get weird. We’re perfectly willing to get in a stranger’s car (Uber) or stay in a stranger’s home (Airbnb)—both of which we can arrange via smartphone app. These services offer certain trust markers, like verification and user reviews, but that doesn’t guarantee…
