  1. PPlease return the "block emails containing these words" filter - IT WORKED -y remove it?

    Return the spam setting for blocking emails that contained specific words. I have NO IDEA why you would remove it - and looking at all of the exact same complaints I don't know why you would not have returned it to spam setting. Adding the email address does nothing because they just send **** with a new address -why should I pay you for this inconvenience? I accept better for my money.

  2. Why doesn't AOL "remember" me?

    Why doesn't AOL "remember" me. I click "keep me signed in", which supposedly is teh replacement for "remember me". But I also later sign out, of course. It doesn't remember me when I return.

  6. Verification Code Problems

    Please once again accommodate landline phones as backup contacts for your verification codes and similar communications. I live in a mobile phone dead spot, so more than half the time, I can't receive calls or texts to my mobile phone. Also I can't always access the backup email addresses that you offer as options.

    I want and need to be able for you to call my landline with your verification codes and other communications.

  8. Changes to 'Today on AOL' news feed

    When I open a news item on Today in AOL it changes to a page that does not allow me to open any photos and has awful music playing or someone talking about a totally different subject than the news I want to read.
    I hate the new changes. If there is no way to change this I'm off to Yahoo.
    After 23 years of being a faithful AOL customer maybe it's time to move on!!!!

  10. Allow Users Responsibility For Their Account Passwords

    I am sick of your ***** system not allowing users to set my password to what they want by giving ***** notices saying "Your new password is too similar to your previous password" or other such messages. I understand that you do this for security, but as the account owner I want to set my password to what I want and so long as I have not been hacked my password is still safe no matter what it is even if it was the exact same as the previous password. STOP MAKING THINGS MORE DIFFICULT FOR USERS BECAUSE YOU WANT…

  13. 2FA - Google Authenticator/Authy

    Two-Factor Auth that is not tied to a phone number... like Google Authenticator or Authy support. It's too easy for a malicious actor to port one's phone number and reset the password for an account via an SMS message. PLEASE enable better security by supporting one of the aforementioned apps.

  16. Saving emails on my PC

    Why can't I save my emails to my PC and not have to sign in if I want to read one I saved. The old system was so much smoother and easy to use. Thanks.

  17. Please tell me how I can keep recently deleted mail for a week - sometimes I inadvertently delete, and can't recover. Thanks

    Create a setting for keeping deleted mail for a desired amount of time.
    Sometimes, mail is inadvertently deleted, and never able to recover.

  18. Every single time I come over here I have to change from the standard to basic setting. Isn't there a way for you to save my preference?

    It is MUCH easier to maneuver in the inbox in the basic/accessible setting than in the standard setting. Every single time I come to the inbox I change it to the basic/accessible setting and yet every single time you change it back. Isn't there something that can be done to save my preferences? This is getting real old real fast.

  20. You are still have bugs with Russia phone numbers!!!! I don't know how to make you fix this, I had written you few years ago about this

    I don't know how to make you fix this, I had written you few years ago about this. Russian's phone prefix is +7, and phone number looks like +7(989)1234567. But you stubbornly add "8", and after that phone number looks like +7 8 (989)1234567. It's so disappointed! Fix this please!!!
