Have you ever googled someone? If you have then that person's name and this My Life website is likely to show up as a result of the search. Don't click on it and think you will remain anonymous. That person will get an email letting them know who all was searching or clicked on their name.

Try it and you'll see. Today I get an email of someone that clicked on my name thru My Life. I don't trust it so I stay away from now on.

I was looking up an old boyfriend from years ago and how embarrassing for them to now know that I googled them. Don't scold me because you know you've googled someone from your past too. lo

Nobody's getting emails letting them know WHO looked at their profile. The only way that could happen is if you had a MyLife account and were logged in at the time you viewed the other person's profile.

Yet I have received numerous emails from them telling me someone I've never heard of is trying to contact me through their site.

Well I guess that makes it official that I don't have a life. I've never been bothered with any emails from that site.

The interesting thing is that after I ignored them for a while they stopped. I guess they eliminate "dead" email addys after a while.

Exactly. I'm staying away to be on the safe side.

No one knows who is looking at whom until you register and they have your email address. And that's the ploy. They say someone is looking, register now to find out who.

Yup, it's called spam. No one is searching for you.

I don't have an account on my life website. But I think you are getting emails because you having an account and you may be logged on while seeing anyone's account. That's why you are getting email or notification's.

I agree, it's kind of sketchy. I'm staying away from that site, after getting many emails that are bogus.
