    I am thinking of starting an online account, but the only way of
    controlling this account is online.
    I am dependent on an Internet service that is supplied by another
    person. If they decided to cancel their account how could I control my
    account?

    Thanks

    Do you think your local library would let you use their computers
    for that purpose? You could ask.

    I would expect that such an account would let you do things by mail
    too.

    I'm not sure I'd trust computers in a public area.

    Many don't.

    To the OP:
    Either get your own internet connection or don't use an online
    account.

    (and this is really the wrong newsgroup for this).

    Mark,

    I agree with your comments, except that regarding the NG.

    Can you suggest a better NG for this question?

    Thanks.

    While it was off topic, I thought that a little non-spam traffic was
    a net positive.

    uk.finance would seem to be relevant to uk online banking. The web
    site of the particular internet bank would be a good place to check
    to see if they think if their methods are safe for the computer at
    your library. For example, many online banks use a scrambled graphic
    keyboard to click to enter your pass number instead of your using
    the keys. That would not be secure against a monitoring camera
    however.
    http://www.barclays.co.uk/Helpsupport/IntroducingPINsentryforOnlineBanking/P1242559314766
    is an example of a device that can help security.
    http://www.routomessaging.com/blog/blog-post.pmx?id=929 describes
    Egg using SMS to your phone for security. Still, I guess it would be
    better to use a friend's non-public computer.

    For info on how to get your own internet account, I would search for
    a local web forum specific to your area to see who gives you a good
    deal. But on news groups, uk.telecom.broadband,
    uk.telecom,uk.media.broadband, free.uk.internet.broadband,
    alt.internet.providers.uk look interesting if they are accessible
    to your server. I have no experience with any of them. They may
    defunct for all I know.

    Well, generally, if you use the wrong ng you are less likely to get a
    reply and more likely to get flamed. This ng is pretty much dead as
    it was created to discuss the software package called "Microsoft
    Money". As support for this product ended ages ago I wouldn't be
    suprised if microsoft removed this group.

    Thanks to both for responding.

    I think that I have struck lucky with the responders.

    Best wishes.
