When reading your RSS feed, the links might lead you to places asking you to log in or pay for access. If this happens, go here and follow the instructions.
RSS feeds allow you to check one place for all your updates and alerts.
This means you don’t have to check different websites and databases. All the new information you are interested in will be sent directly to you. All the information from the different sites will be stored in one place where you can delete, save, and organize it. RSS feeds are usually anonymous, but you will need to use a feed reader.
