Steganos Online Shield

I have Avira Antivirus and I enabled online shield VPN in it. It downloaded Steganos Online Shield to my computer so I activated it then paid for full protection. Now I noticed I have an Ethernet2 connection on my laptop. Did Steganos create it and does it need file and print sharing.

Yes. Most VPNs create a virtual Ethernet.

Are you reporting that a paid protection does not get your questions answered? That's sad.

Thank you

Everything was in German.

There are many languages.

Just today a forum I visit asked about Balochi language support. I've heard of many languages over the years but they wrote better English than most.

No Help

there site only has a list of possible problems and no place to ask a question.

Do VPN services require Remote Access and File and Print Sharing enabled.

I have them disabled on my computer because I have problems with a stalker who knows my wifi name and key. My computer has been corrupted and files deleted several times.

(NT) Why Not Change Your WiFi Name & Key?

I have AT&T U-verse and I am not sure if I can change them. If I could I would.

But last year I discovered that my tormentor had created a wifi connection similar to mine.
He then broke into my apartment and logged me onto it and added never connect to my wifi network. I only noticed because the connection was so slow and it hadn't been before.

I deleted the rogue wifi network and logged back onto mine.

He or they already knew my wifi name and key so they just log on. I hadn't noticed that remote desktop and access were enabled. They also enabled file and print sharing. It allowed them to change the bios of an Acer laptop so I can't get into it. Corrupt two Dells and now I am sure my Asus is a problem waiting to happen. They even turned on my webcam and recording feature.

I am certain if I change it they will just come back into my apartment and read the label on the router.

I've thought about asking AT&T for another router. I am sure considering the circumstance they will give me another. I just don't want it to have the name and key on it.

Thank You

It was easier to change the name and password than I thought.

Yep, AT&T Provides Instructions for Router Settings

And if you've got someone breaking into your apartment, it's time to call the police, plus tell the apartment owners about the break-ins.

Hope this helps.

Some folk do, some don't.

The choice is to reduce and turn off services when and where you can.
