  2. Authclear

    I have two problems as of late. When I go to sign out I get a message asking me if I really want to sign out. Secondly, and most annoying, I get a message asking if I want to download “authclear.” I have no desire to download something I have no knowledge of. I searched but I can’t determine what authclear is. Please delete this most annoying pop up. David Mamrak

  4. colors

    I hate this new change, I cannot change colors or even have a background picture. I cannot change my font color and this washed out grey I cannot read. I hate, hate, hate that we are stuck with one color and have no choice,

  7. You can improve AOL mail by removing the ads from the top and side fof the inbox. I pay a monthly fee and don't want ads.

  8. Constantly asking to verify my telephone number and recovery email account

    Been a member since your inception and getting pretty tired of you asking for my mobile phone number and alternate email account supposedly for security reasons. You have my alternate account and I will never give you my mobile number, so stop asking and get on with your service or I will delete my account and use another provider. I will give you 2 months from the date of this message to STOP IT or I will switch over to either my comcast or gmail account for my mail. Hope you understand this!!

  11. No more will I ever have to see those offensive adds & Big Foot. <FREE>

    All you have to do is use your iTunes small floating screen that remains on top over all other screens to cover the add or anything you don't want to see. Thanks for the Big Foot AOL, now I don't have to look at any of your advertisement ever again! Who's your Daddy.

  12. Since I am paying for AOL, I don't see why I am getting so many ads.

    I am especially annoyed by getting ads from scam Chinese companies, like Roselinlin. I researched the company and reviews were universally bad from customers who ordered from them and got items that were completely inferior and unlike the photos in the ads. Please, please stop these fraudulent ads. Besides which, since I am paying for AOL, I don't see why I am getting ads at all.

  15. This is ridiculous! Access to mail impossible because of time-out before security code gotten from other account.

    This is ridiculous! Access to one of my AOL mail accounts is impossible because by the time a required security code sent to another AOL mail account is retrieved, the initial mail account has timed out.

  17. Ads on desktop computers

    I am a loyal AOL user, since 1995. I am also paying monthly for AOL. I am frustrated by the advertising that appears every time i read an email, delete an email, or look at another category like old mail. My desktop pauses for half a minute each time another ad loads. This makes it very time consuming to look at my email and I waste hours of time dealing with this. I dont find the ads to be as much of a problem on my iphone, but on my desktop where i work it is quite a problem. I…

  18. STOP the dirty nasty offensive adds, starting with BIG FOOT!

    I hate that ugly **** big foot in my face on my computer everyday when I sign into my AOL account. I think they are trying to offend me. It's only a matter of time before I'm out of here!

  20. No ads at the top of my e-mail list

    No ads at the top of my e-mail list. It looks like a new e-mail and I click on it by accident. Would rather have the ads on the right side.
