This past week I noticed when opening my browser that my homepage changed from fiostrending.verizon.net to AOL. I checked my settings and my homepage is still set for the fiostrending. Even if I type in the verizon page it goes to AOL. Why did this change?

This was just posted at http://www.dslreports.com 

so you may not have been mistaken.

 

 

 

[Networking] verizon home page auto-redirects to aol.com now, as of ~07/28/2017

This older verizon home page: entertainment.verizon.com/news/ or even without the "news" entertainment.verizon.com/

and this new one: fiostrending.verizon.com/

now auto-redirect to https://www.aol.com/

At first I thought this was a browser hijack, but this addon, Redirect Control, by hjgwmvya, »addons.mozilla.org/en-US ··· control/

confirms that it's an on-page redirect, not an in-browser redirect.

This essentially reflects one of the things that Verizon said was a reason they bought AOL.
