Doing away with google voice? – Google Voice Help

As to reclaiming Google Voice numbers, I realize that there may be some confusion as to what constitutes use. Officially, “use” means that you perform one of the following activities within a six-month period:

Make an outbound call using the Google Voice number
Send a SMS using the Google Voice number
Answer a live call using the Google Voice number
Update your voicemail greeting or otherwise change Google Voice settings “}}

Sonos, multiple homes

October 26, 2019

Assuming that your Sonos systems in both locations are functioning properly, I would do the following:

– Delete the Sonos app from your controller device(s) in order to reset it completely
– Reinstall the app
– When you start the app at one of your locations, you should be presented with an option to ‘Connect to an Existing System’
– Choose this option and the app should discover your Sonos system and connect – When you start the app at the other location, you should again be presented with the ‘Connect to an Existing System’ option
– Choose this option
– In my experience, the controller app will subsequently automatically connect to the Sonos system present in its location

Opinion | 7 Simple Ways to Protect Your Digital Privacy

“How: A browser extension like uBlock Origin blocks ads and the data they collect. The uBlock Origin extension also prevents malware from running in your browser and gives you an easy way to turn the ad blocking off when you want to support sites you know are secure. Combine uBlock with Privacy Badger, which blocks trackers, and ads won’t follow you around as much. To slow down stalker ads even more, disable interest-based ads from Apple, Facebook, Google and Twitter. A lot of websites offer means to opt out of data collection, but you need to do so manually. Simple Opt Out has direct links to opt-out instructions for major sites like Netflix, Reddit and more. Doing this won’t eliminate the problem completely, but it will significantly cut down on the amount of data collected.

You should also install the HTTPS Everywhere extension. HTTPS Everywhere automatically directs you to the secure version of a site when the site supports that, making it difficult for an attacker — especially if you’re on public Wi-Fi at a coffee shop, airport or hotel — to digitally eavesdrop on what you’re doing.

Some people may want to use a virtual private network (VPN), but it’s not necessary for everyone. If you frequently connect to public Wi-Fi, a VPN is useful because it adds a layer of security to your browsing when HTTPS isn’t available. It can also provide some privacy from your internet service provider and help minimize tracking based on your IP address. But all your internet activity still flows through the VPN provider’s servers, so in using a VPN you’re choosing to trust that company over your ISP not to store or sell your data. Make sure you understand the pros and cons first, but if you want a VPN, Wirecutter recommends IVPN.”
