Opt in for dns hijacker?



I'm pretty sure I never opted in for the error messages of pages not found to default for the att "service".   That service couldn't even find me when I included the city, state, name of company, and even the house number....I hope the "opt out" "feature" works LOL.

Hi @springfieldcomp,

We apologize for any inconveniences. The option is on by default. We do this to help anyone that may have gone to the wrong site. For the most part, the DNS servers are able to redirect people to the right area, but if someone types in the wrong URL on accident, it is there to help. I know this can be an inconvenience if you have an internal network or are trying to access a site that is not registered correctly. For those that do not wish to have DNS Error assist enable, you can go to our site to opt-out.
