Q: I think I should make my Gmail password stronger. But is this going to create a hassle with
my other accounts or devices? Mark B

Q:  Should you log out of Bitwarden when you’re finished using your vault Elaine L

Lock is the suggested (default).

Q:  We currently use Comcast (Xfinity) as our internet provider (and cable TV service). We are most pleased with the speed and features but are contemplating “cutting the cable” in favor of more streaming sites. Also, Frontier is now placing fiber optic cable in our neighborhood and will soon offer this internet service, which we hear has phenomenal speeds. Our current email address is through Comcast, which means we would have to change the email provider. Which email provider do you recommend (Gmail, Hotmail, etc.), and what is the best way to get mail forwarded once we make the change from Comcast? Rocky M
