I cannot believe that the UK has actually passed this Bill.
Whilst I am not that naive to realize that the Government has been doing hacking and bulk data collection for years this Bill actually legitimizes it not to mention other aspects of this Bill including data retention, connection records, device IDs etc

There are some countries out there with some very suspect regimes who would love to have this sort of power.

As some people maybe aware and as it has been mentioned in the forums on numerous occasions closing and restarting Epic keeps things clean and the connection trouble free.

Whilst it is not a major issue to manually close and restart Epic would it be possible to have a Quick Shut/Restart Button that would perform the action with one click?

Just a thought smile

Is it possible that something could be done to have a feature that allows to switch from the USA to the Dutch proxy?

The Dutch proxy is good but the US proxy allows you access to more services smile:)

I do close and restart Epic but the proxy usually stays the same.

That command line is used in Firefox.

In the location bar type about:config and scroll down to media.peerconnection.enabled set the value to false.

When a webpage is loading the window pops up in the top left corner, then when the webpage is loaded is pops up in the bottom right corner where it usually does.

Is this normal?

This is old news about the Epic Update exe.

It is not difficult to disable it.


When you delete any program never trust the uninstaller to completely remove it, always do a thorough manual search yourself.

Whilst I was browsing Epic was storing info in the places the above post mentioned, however, ALL the files were deleted after I closed Epic.

This problem has not happened for a while now.

Thanks for help and keep up the good work smile:)

#21 Re: Epic Windows Bugs » email suggestions? » 2014-11-13 08:01:09

Some of my friends use these 'throwaway e-mails' such as incognitomail

I don't trust any e-mail provider to be honest but here are a few decent ones

Opolis

Hushmail

Countermail Free week trial

Always read the Privacy Policy, you will be surprised(or maybe not) on what information they actually do collect from you.

Hi,

When I click the dials it does take me to the entered urls so they do work in that respect smile

PS I do use Epicsearch most of the time but my wife likes Duckduckgo(have not converted her yet) smile:)

#23 Re: Epic Windows Bugs » Odd HomePage » 2014-11-11 07:51:49

Any news on this?

The search boxes on the home page are still displaying previous web pages.

Re-installed and changed addresses in the boxes but to no avail.

#24 Re: Epic Privacy Browser - Privacy Features & Privacy Concerns » Alert Message: --- has taken control of your internet connection » 2014-11-11 07:47:47

I got a message as well.

It appeared in the top right corner and said that an application is trying to take control of your internet connection.

Hi, I tried that and it does not work.

As you can see in the duckduckgo box it now has an image of a previous website I visited and the ixquick box shows my homepage.

Also, after I switched my computer and internet off I went back online later to find my homepage displaying in the boxes the last visited website.

I have been closing epic properly.
