http://www.bing.com/account/general hacks into facebook & google, the reason I found out is because I did a search in facebook and google and both said to me certain links have been omitted from the search result because of adult content, then it asks if U want to go to change settings for this in http://www.bing.com/ which I find strange considering I never created an account with bing.com in the first place, they somehow hacked into my facebook or hotmail account. Has anybody else had this happen ?

I'd guess it's because bing is the default search engine for windows 8. It doesn't seem like that would interfere when specifically using another one but then somehow bing is infiltrating the results of your other searches.

Also facebook is integrating bing with its own search engine:

so that may be why you're finding it there.

Anyway, here's how to change the default search engine in windows 8:

If you find your search results are still being nannied by bing you may need to change the bing settings on your computer to avoid that and just live with the fact that it's sometimes going to be there.

I'm not sure I can follow how, if you don't have a bing account, it can hack into Facebook and Google... I don't use of those accounts, not the least as they allegedly have been hacked, or scan content, or may have intrusive or invasive practises.

Similarly I avoid Bing like the plague. Not the least as it likes to ingratiate itself as part of other software - unless one is careful; and on occssion seems to have created problems for those "infected/afflicted" by it...

"Daveincaps's" info re' Facebook with Bing may well answer part of the why etc...

When I installed win-7 recently I seem to recall that Bing was the first offering for a search engine during latter part of set up. Which I promptly declined...

I agree about Bing but feel the same about Google Chrome. Both try to take-over and are snoopy.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

mmm - a wee while back someone here (riider?) suggested Iron (SWare Iron) as a safer and generally less cluttering, and busy - and snoopy - alternative to Chrome...

Currently trying it on one of my Macs; thus far it does seem a wee bit faster than Chrome... and appears to have less installed by default (assorted "add-ons")...
