In the past, I have used DBS to help me maintain my healthy lifestyle by helping me with the cost of my online classes. I also use DBS to meet friends, travel, and explore the world with my family. The programs I use are all free and I can’t say enough good things about them.
That being said, there are a few downsides to DBS. First, it’s a little bit clunky when you have to sign up multiple times with different email address. Second, sometimes the site feels a little slow and clunky even when I’m using it correctly. Third, you have to log in every time to change the account password (which is a pain), which can be annoying if you use a lot of passwords.
Its like a combination of online banking and a time-share. You open your account and then you can only log in once. Then, you have to log back in to change your password. This is something that I wish was possible with more online banking systems, but sadly, there isn’t much innovation. The only real innovation that I see is a way that DBS can authenticate your account’s password.
You can use your DBS password to log in to your accounts. So that means you can log in to your emails, your bank and your DBS account. And then you can use the password to change your password, log back in and change your email address to one of your DBS accounts.
The only downside is that it can be a little difficult to change your password. I know because I recently sent my password to someone from my DBS account, only to discover that they had already changed my password several times and had my DBS account blocked.
As an additional bonus, all accounts in the DBS system are automatically linked to your email, so if you ever lose your phone or computer, you can still be online.
The reason that people can’t change their email address is because they don’t have the funds to do so. A lot of the money that the DBS people use to fund their jobs goes to the organization that has the funds to support the organization that has the funds to fund those jobs.
The DBS system is completely free to use, though you will have to link your email to your account. For any of you that say, “But that’s so expensive!” you are right. You can’t use the DBS system on a pay-as-you-go basis. However, you can use your phone as a DBS client, and that’s how I got my DBS account back.
If your DBS account is linked to your email address, your phone can be used as a DBS client. If you go into your phone’s settings and turn on the DBS client, the DBS is sent to your email address. If you have a different email address you are still able to use your phone as a DBS client – but you have to do a little extra work to link it to your account.
That’s still pretty cool. My email is with my dbs account, and my phone is linked to my email. It’s a pretty easy, relatively painless process.
