Summary List Placement Rover is a popular crowd-sourced marketplace for pet care, in which you can sign up to either provide or receive services like dog and cat sitting, dog walking, doggy day care, and house sitting. Essentially, it applies the Uber and Airbnb model to pets. How to sign up for Rover to receive pet care It only takes a few minutes to sign up for Rover, which provides a network of about 200,000 pet care providers across the country. 1. Open Rover in a web browser and click "Sign Up" in the upper right corner of the screen.
- Choose how you want to sign up – you can use your Facebook credentials, your Google account, Apple ID, or create a new username and password.
- After creating your account, you'll be taken back to the Rover homepage where you can search for services, but before you do that you might want to complete your profile. At the top of the page, click your profile name and then choose "Profile" from the dropdown menu.
In the "Account Info" section, click "Update" and enter your details, including your address. Then click "Save & Continue."
Once you've created your account online, you'll want to download the Rover app for iOS or Android. Log into your account to begin requesting services from the palm of your hand. How to sign up for Rover as a pet care provider If you want to become a pet care provider on Rover, the sign-up process is a little more involved.
Go to the Rover website and sign into your Rover account (or create an account following the steps in the previous section) using the links at the top of the page.
Click "Get Started."
Fill out the application form. Start by answering a few questions about why you want to become a pet care provider for Rover, and then click "Let's Get Started."
Complete each of the 13 pages and click "Save & Continue" at the bottom of each page to move onto the next. You will need to upload photos of yourself playing with pets, get testimonials from other people, and take a quiz that assesses your ability to be a safe and effective pet care provider.
You will need to authorize Rover to complete a background check, and you will be required to pay $25 (or $35 for an enhanced check). Enter your credit card information so Rover can perform this as a part of the application process.
After you complete each step, the application will be submitted and you will be notified via email if you've been accepted into Rover as a pet care provider.
Once you've created your account online, you'll want to download the Rover app for iOS or Android. Log into your account to begin accepting service requests from the palm of your hand.

How to delete your Netflix viewing history, and prevent something you've watched from affecting your viewing recommendations
Summary List Placement You can delete your Netflix history one title at a time, but you...Summary List Placement You can delete your Netflix history one title at a time, but you can't erase your entire history at once. Deleting your Netflix history will stop those movies and shows from appearing in your "Continue Watching" section, as well as alter what Netflix recommends you in the future. To delete your Netflix history, you'll need to use the Netflix website on a computer. Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories. Most of the time, this is a good thing — because Netflix knows exactly what you are watching, it can place shows in progress in the "Continue Watching" section so you can easily pick up where you left off. It also can use shows you have watched to make better recommendations about what you might want to see in the future. But if you don't want Netflix to use your viewing history, you have a little control. You can remove individual movies and TV shows from your history. This can keep Netflix from making viewing recommendations and is a sort of "nuclear option" for keeping other people on your account from seeing what you're watching. But since you can't delete your entire viewing history at once, this can be time-consuming if you want to delete a lot of items. How to delete your Netflix viewing history 1. In a web browser, go to the Netflix website. You can do this on a computer or in a browser on a mobile device, but you can't use the Netflix mobile app. 2. Click your account icon at the top right of the browser window, and then click "Account." 3. Scroll down to the section called My Profile and click "Viewing Activity." 4. On the My Activity page, you'll see a list of the most recent Netflix movies and TV shows you have watched. To see more, scroll to the bottom and click "Show More." 5. To remove a video from your viewing history, click the "stop" icon to the right of "Report a Problem." 6. Repeat that process for any other movies or shows you want to remove. Anything you delete will be removed from your viewing history within 24 hours.
