  2. Put the option to opt out of interest based advertising back

    AOL changed the opt out of interest based advertising. It used to be easy , now it's so complicated and doesn't actually let you have the option anymore. You used to be able to get it down to only a few, but now, with that option removed. You are subject to an average of 135 different companies tracking and targeting you.AOL doesn't care bout the customer, they are only about advertising, if we pay for AOL service, they only profit more. AOL, no longer stands for "America On Line" It's "Advertising On LIne"

  3. Print Preview

    Get rid of print preview or at least make a way to turn it off. It just adds extra steps to a process that is already too slow.

  5. Fraudulent advertisers

    On February 23, 2020, I ordered and used my ATM card to purchase a top from NINACLOAK.Com who continues to show the same attractive tops as being in stock. My top has never been sent. In searching for their web site there are multiple links to reveal this is a scam advertiser. My bank is doing an investigation. I used their posted phone number and was placed on hold for over an hour with no response. These people are stealing the order payments from all who order their advertised tops. Please refuse their advertising.

  8. Background vs Stationery

    You obviously misunderstood, we didn't want your stationery, we want to be able to OUR OWN backgrounds like before. How difficult is that? You don't even understand what your customers want or need, yet you increase the rates? That's almost laughable. You're stealing from us. Why didn't you take notes of AOL 9.8.2 before you cut it off? You don't have a clue as to what we want or need. You're not even trying to satisfy us. Why not?

  10. I have two suggestions, first suggestion is to provide a grammar check as you provided the spell check.

    First suggestion is to provide a grammar check as you did with the spell check to help prevent writing errors. Secondly, to allow the customer service to take the information from the customer, and to pass it along to whoever they may transfer you to if they cannot provide assistance. Having the customer repeat all the data all over again is stressful when it can be relayed to whoever they are transferring you to, and to save time for the tech as well.

  11. sign on screen make the username box bigger along with the arrow,you have plenty of room why don't you make it convenient for people to use

    Regarding sign on screen. Why don't you make the username box bigger making it easier to to log in . Above all the small arrow icon to change users. it's so small and light colored you need a magnifying glass to see it. I can't believe something that is used often is so small .Doesn't anybody that designed this ever tried to use it. You have to be a marksman to hit it with your mouse,every time I sign on it torques me that this was designed so stupid.

  16. Calendar Look Back

    Calendar Only allows a 2-1/2 year look back on a rolling basis.
