    Default Shady Survey?

    Just attempted to take a Live Sample survey. It asked if I subscribed to any streaming services. When I clicked the ones I subscribed to, it said to participate in the survey, I would need to give them my login information to the services so that they could passively observe my viewing habits! MY LOGIN INFORMATION!!! Crazy!!! Obviously I didn't continue, but I feel like that is some sort of a scam survey to get user information and not sure if it should be reported to Live Sample to be removed or not...

    I have had some that keep popping up that want me to log into Facebook and Linkedin; one today from Live. No thanks, not getting that information.

    Over the years I have been requested to log into my cell phone account and I recall being asked to log into my on line banking (quite a few years ago)
    Nope, not happening

    WOw did not get that one yet, I would do the same thing get out of it. Surveys are getting more intrusive than before. I notice this a lot lately.

    I think a lot of them are trying to find ways to monitor people's habits instead of having people self-report. I'm with you that I wouldn't give them that much info!!

    Yeah, I mean I know we all know better than to give out that kind of information, I just feel badly for people who may get tricked into giving out login and/or banking information. I just hate the idea of people being taken advantage of unknowingly. I don't have HBO Go yet, maybe I should ask someone for their login info. so that I can "access their viewing habits" hahahah!

    I know it's nothing to do with your company Tricia Absolutely LOVE SR and have no doubts that any info. I have stored through SR is 100% safe. Just need to be careful with some of these surveys once in a great while!
