Hi anyone

PC Advisor last issue has an article on what Google knows about a person. There are acnumber of tinyulr.com addresses which I have put in b to no avail. Would someone tell me what "head over to tinyulr.com/ybntgmn" means - as an example. How does this work as it doesn't in my browzer nor does it if I go to Tinyulr.com website and put the ybntgmn into their search, The mag assumes we all know how to "head over to" and I don't. Paul

Copy and paste the Tinyurl link to your address bar and enter. That particular link you posted isn't healthy.

"The mag assumes we all know how to "head over to" and I don't."

It means you type the URL into your browser's Address Bar (the horizontal bar at the very top). Don't type it into a search engine such as Google as it'll never work. When you've done that hit the enter key on your keyboard to get to the site.

Secondly, make sure you type it in accurately as tinyulr.com doesn't exist - the correct address for the site you're trying to reach is tinyurl.com/ybntgmn.

"Copy and paste the Tinyurl link ............."

How do you do that from a magazine Dave? ;)

You don't SS, just copy and paste from the OP's post. Duh..

tinyurl.com/ybntgmn

The tiny url takes me to the Google Login page, then when I've signed in it goes to my history page.

If I am already signed into my Google account the tiny url takes me straight to my history page.

ergo: you have to be signed into your Google account before the tiny url will work.
