I use a different email for each service, like Sky, Netflix, Disney+ etc and a junk email for sites I sign up to with an unbirthday and if asked like what's your mothers maiden name I'll say something like 'MEATPIE#hoover56*twilight^' (not one ive used) the answer to the question can be anything. Tbh changing emails is a lot easier than dealing with spam and having to keep changing passwords. I use a throwaway emails for forums etc a with unique passwords and if one gets caught I know it wont effect my other ones.

That sounds a good idea, and something I feel I could do  8-)

You've just reminded me that I used to have a secret word, the same secret word for every eventuality. Because it was secret I never thought I'd need to reveal it to anyone until one day I did and it was very, very, very rude and extreamly embarrassing for the both of us :red:

I'm intrigued :D

So easy to get trapped >:(

It really is. Even the brightest of us can get taken in by these scams. I've taken to assume every email, text, phone call and letter received are a scam until proven otherwise.

I received a  particularly dangerous phishing mail this evening purporting to come from the NHS offering Covid passports - something I've been googling in recent days.  The header revealed it was an arcade gaming company so clicking on the link would have probably resulted in a fate worse than death.

Ditto. I wonder if VirtualBox can emulate a TPM device...

According to a thread on the ThinkBroadband Forum (https://forums.thinkbroadband.com/windows/t/4687302-windows-11-or-what-ever-it-is-going-to-be-called.html) Windows 11 can be installed on VirtualBox.
