I have only checked this app out 2x's! My ex-husband James Bernnie (Butch)Kent has tapped my cell&has checked it out several x's. His email is have a disc to steal peoples pw to their email accts. So if you've had problems with your email they did it! But I like The Onion have since they started yrs ago.
