Dear colleagues / Proz technical support team,

I have realized, and this is the second time in few days, that when I post what I am working on, Proz shows "posted via my mobile" or "posted via CafeTran Espresso" when I don't use my mobile or CafeTran Espresso at all to post this information: I wonder why this is happening.

Is this happening to you as well?

Thanks, best,

Sabrina

Your posts show up for me as "posting from ProZ.com". Do they still show up as "via mobile" for you?

Synced? Apr 10

Maybe Sabrina's mobile and CafeTran Espresso are synced with her proz account (without her knowledge - maybe she missed to follow the latest privacy policies of Caftran Espresso or on her mobile when she used proz on mobile the last time).

Sabrina, I suggest you to check your settings on your proz.com account on your mobile and on your CafeTran Espresso. If you don't see that these are synced then you should send a support ticket.

I was very surprised when I saw that we can log on with our google and LinkedIn account on our proz.com account. This should never be allowed. When everything are connected with everything it means huge data and huge data means huge money and profit (not for the users).

There is a fantastic article in Hungarian, unfortunately I don't have time to translate it now, if a Hungarian colleague has the time and interest in translating it, then you are more than welcome to translate this exciting article:

Now my WIWO is ok (appearing posted via Proz.com) Apr 10

Thanks to your insights, dear colleagues, but please also note that I have never used CafeTrans Espresso, not even for translation, and I have never used my mobile to post anything here on Proz...

In your list of entries, https://www.proz.com/wiwo/?criteria[entity_id]=1645961 , I am not seeing this. Could you attach a screenshot or two of what your are seeing to a support request at https://www.proz.com/support so that staff can troubleshoot the issue? Thanks!

Jared
