Why Am I Getting a Password Error With My iDrive Backup?

Episode 1775 (2:12:34)

Alan from Murietta, CA
iDrive

Alan uses iDrive for his cloud backup, and he's recently started getting a "password mismatch" error. Leo has had similar issues, and he thinks it's either security software or ad blockers that is causing that kind of issue. Sites are trying to find out more about you, and the blockers on our system and browsers are fighting against that. That prompts the page developers to try and bypass it. Leo suggests turning off wifi on your mobile device and see if you can do it. If so, you know there's something in the network router that's blocking it. Leo also recommends NextDNS for doing that kind of blocking. But sometimes you have to turn it off in order to get something done.
