BT Privacy Online

Hi everyone,

Please can someone help my father with a query?

He has recntly downloaded the above program on to his laptop. However, when he uses Skype he is presented with pop ups from the above program. It is informing him that the following numbers are trying to dial out.


He regulary trawls his pc with the usual Anti Spyware / AntiVirus progs and everything shows up clean.

Does anyone have any idea as to what this could be?

This costs £5.25 per quarter, including VAT. I had signed up for this until I got broadband.

Angry Kid - that is the point of the package your father has subscribed to. BT state it protects your PC from being hijacked and dialling out on premium lines without your permission. All you have to do is open the PT programme and permit that number in future.

Thanks for your replies.

I appreciate that this is what the program is all about. However, I was wondering if anyone else had come across this while using Skype, and if so, are the numbers generated through the Skype software?
