    Some of my subscriptions aren't showing up and the site says I do not have permission to view others.

    AEV DaveAEV Chris Any news on this front?
    This is the first news I have heard of this. I will look into it this afternoon and report back any findings.

      All, there are multiple reasons why we have backed away from Tapatalk. First was for security reasons. We did a lot of change-over on the back end of our web properties. There have been issues with Tapatalk and security issues in the past and administrators are not notified and the bugs are not remedied very fast. Also, a lot of spam is not filtered out through Tapatalk, thus a lot of members report getting spam PMs in other languages and phishing for info.

      Also, Tapatalk tracks users and sells interests and data to third parties. We value privacy so this was a negative for us.

        Who doesn't track data now though? From Internet providers all the way down to search engines it's all tracked now. I didn't mind the ocational PM from some rando because I'm not dumb enough to click the link.

        Unless it it hurts the security of other members not using Tapatalk I'm willing to take the risk for the shear convenience and usability and continue using it. I would also greatly appreciate the ability to continue using it for this forum.

          Taptalk actually does allow another source for spammers to infiltrate the forum, and possibly into other areas of AEV depending on how the network is setup, forum hosted, etc... Recently a casino in Vegas had a network breach because of weak security on their internet connected fish tank. Network security is only as strong as the weakest link.

          I am all for as much privacy as possible, knowing that sources like Google are tracking me I try to use Duck Duck Go and other sources that are less intrusive for my internet searches. I am all for AEV looking to protect the forum and privacy as much as possible.

            So I take it Tapatalk is a no go for this forum then?

              Any update on this? It appears forum usage has decreased since Tapatalk was removed. Have y'all reconsider? It really does make functionality much better.

                No plans to bring it back at this time.
