I’ve been seeing an increasing number of Facebook posts that ask something like
What was the first car you ever owned? -or- Where did you meet the love of your live?
Beware of Facebook games such as this Facebook maiden name game as they can possibly be a scam. This game could be harmless but it exposes information that could be used to compromise your accounts.

I purchased an outdoor Guardzilla security camera. I got it set up and working with my Moto X Pure edition. After a few minutes, it started downloading a camera update. After that, I could no longer connect.
I tried reinstalling the app on my phone but still could not connect. I exchanged that unit for a new one at Staples. Guess what.. the new one wouldn’t connect either.
Let me preface this by saying that the DCS 936L is not designed for outdoor use. I installed it under my garage eave to look at the driveway and doorway.
The way the unit is now, it’s worse than worthless. I turned the sensitivity up to 50 percent (It Was windy today and the unit is under the garage eve looking at the driveway and door).
