  8. Duplicate Names

    I have had my aol.com email name since joining in the 1990's. until a few years ago some one else has my same e-address but not password which is of little comfort since I can trace her name, home address, city and state etc on the dark web. This was annoying at first but Im really concerned that my personal information may soon be found. This sounds like a flaw in AOL security. How long do I need to keep complaining? can someone fix this??

  10. Adding Email addresses to the block is time consuming

    Each email address must be entered separately to the block list, either by typing the address in the block list or by right clicking on the email and then clicking on the add to the block list. If you get 30 or more emails to be block each day, that can take lot of time because you have to deal with each one individually. Senders can make changes to their addresses to get around blocked mail. Can't this process be improved by the AOL team or am I just not doing it right?

  17. Address bar Issue

    The address bar on my aol browser has an autofill problem that does not allow me to easily access websites. When typing in a specific url, it will often direct me to a previously viewed site and will not permit me to finish typing in the url for the site I wish to visit. This issue is extremely annoying and time consuming because of the difficulty reaching the URL I intend to visit. It also creates a privacy issue for anyone else who might wish to use this computer.

  19. spam email

    I am getting over 100 spam emails per day. The block feature doesn't work, as they just change 1 letter in their address. Why can't we block domains (like .uk) or words (like mcafee or elongation or dog barking) like we were able to do before? And why as a company can you not filter this spam?

  20. Browser History

    Please bring back the Browser History. All I had to do before was click on the website I wanted to revisit. Now I have to type it all over again. You replaced it with a list of things, most of which I have no interest in or knowledge about. Browser History was one of the best things about AOL. I have no idea why you removed it, but plead with you to return it!!!!!
