[ALERT] AOL users beware!!

No idea why anyone would still be using AOL, but for those that are, perhaps a good reason to finally move?

US telco giant Verizon has given notice it will be providing information on its subscribers to AOL for targeted advertising.

A notice in Verizon's privacy policy warns users that beginning next month, information such as device information, addresses and whereabouts, and browsing habits, will be given to AOL so it can sling relevant ads at netizens.
