re: Question about Gmail security - Korkstand
[quote]So in plain English...is that identical to them having your password?[/quote]No. Storing a hash of a password is not enough to be able to login to an account normally.

re: Question about Gmail security - Korkstand
[quote]Has there ever been a known case of a person's entire Gmail account being "leaked"? I don't mean meta data...I mean literally someone hacking Google itself and stealing an account or Google giving it to somebody?

re: Keeping Netflix while having Kodi - Korkstand
[quote]MontyFranklyn[/quote]Are you seriously going to keep posting here asking what Kodi is rather than just googling it? You don't even have to read much. The first result for 'kodi' on google tells you exactly what it is. If you want to know more, come back and ask some specific questions....
