On my way to work, I got a text from my father. The topic was a question I have been asking myself lately.
I answered it, but it didn’t get me to the bottom of the story. It’s a few years after the game’s release that I’ve been asked to write a blog post on the subject, to help me get my dad to do the same.
I knew I had to write this, because it is a big issue for me and my dad.
My dad doesn’t know where I am, so he has no idea when I get texts that he does. He does receive some email updates, but he only reads them when I ask him to read them. He also ignores the hundreds of messages that he receives from me, and it would be impossible for him to not be aware of the most recent ones.
I know this is a big problem. My dad sends hundreds of messages a day, and I know that this is because I am just a kid and he is concerned about where I am and when I will get my next text. He is also worried about where I am, and where my sister is and all these other worries.
We all have our own reasons for what we do. But if you send hundreds of messages a day, then you should have some sort of email log. If you don’t, you may be missing important emails. This is an easy way to keep track of your parents’ important email. You can set up a calendar in Gmail to track what messages you’ve sent your parents. You can also set up a schedule for when you do certain things.
GoDaddy and other email service providers are trying to get into the email log space, but it is difficult to find email addresses that your parent uses. My mom is so paranoid that shes had to set up her email account so that it only logs into her account when she is home, which is why I never use it. My dad is the opposite. He has a ton of email addresses, and he likes to use some of them.
Its a real pain to set up a password manager, but, you can also set up your email password at Outlook.com.
One of the biggest pain points for email password managers is that they only log into the accounts that they have access to. If your parents use a different email service and don’t have access to your account, you can’t log into it. And that means that your account is at risk of being hacked.
The best way to prevent that from happening is to have your parents add a new email address to your account. They can then setup a password manager, and your account is kept safe. I use email password managers for the same reason.
