Here is a great news for all you busy cyber little mobile bees, who can stand to be constantly bombarded by the endless annoying ads. The famous Adblock Browser app has decided to go mobile. Both Android and IOS users are going to appreciate this decision so much.
How efficient this app is going to be in the mobile environment? Well, this is a tough question to answer to. Apparently, Adblock Browser offers much more with its mobile edition. For example, there is a solid promise that your battery’s life is going to be improved. Seriously?
What is the connection between ads and a smartphone’s battery? Adblock Browser should do, what is does the best. Fight the ads. This may seem as only the one and insufficient thing to offer to spoiled and demanding smartphone users, but mark our words, it is more than enough.
We can only wish for the favorable mobile winds and rewarding profit sea for this popular app. Yet, the mobile money can make apps do funny things. We sure hope our Adblock Browser is not going to be among them. Otherwise, this is going to become one more sad mobile story.
The WhatsApp Web application had a nice promotion and a relatively short virtual existence, before it has experienced a malware-related trouble. It seems that the invaluable vCard feature can be a source of great trouble for millions of users of this extremely popular app.
Why? Well, the hackers have found a way to install both malware and ransomware in a tiny vCard file. To make the things even worse for WhatsApp users these malicious visitors do not have to ask your permission, when it comes to installation in your device.
The good news is that WhatsApp team was prompt in its response, and you can rest assured that this security flaw is already being fixed. On the other side, our hats off to the busy little bees, who have located and identified this cyber-trouble. We sure hope, they will get something in return.
From what we know, WhatsApp has not been involved in bug bounty reward systems, so far. Yet, its new owner Facebook is always interested for security improvements, and notably very generous in this field. Therefore, the Check Point team could get a reward for its efforts. Right?
If you are looking for seeing the KISS word in our post’s title, then you are definitely a huge fan of heavy metal and rock music. We have to disappoint you a little bit. The KIS stands for Kaspersky Internet Security. This Multi-Device thing definitely rocks, and there is also one more detail.
Under these extremely difficult circumstances for Kaspersky, caused by the Reuter’s controversial announcement, the busy little bees in Kaspersky need to focus and do things they do the best. Therefore, this new Multi-Device is more than welcomed in this situation.
This package is supposed to work and protect you on all mobile platforms, including Android, IOS, and Windows Phone. Yet, for what is worth, Kaspersky admits that a Windows Phone is the safest thing you can get right now. One may say, only because it is not so popular as Android or IOS.
On the other hand, we sure hope that one day, the guys involved in the Multi-Device project are not going to say that there were some “artificial” viruses and malware developed by the same people for some “controversial” purposes. Otherwise, all of these are going to be in vain. Right?
Mozilla is eager to reshape the challenging landscape of private browsing with the new Firefox Aurora private surfing feature. What is the big deal with it, you may ask? Every single browser has it. So, what is so special about the Aurora? Well, when Mozilla says private, it really means it.
You open a new private browser, and you think that you are invisible. Little did you know that all kinds of trackers and scripts are still following you. So, what kind of private browsing is that? This is what we used to have before Mozilla decided to do something about it. And, now we are safe?
To tell you the truth, there is no privacy online. It has never been. At least not the one you are expecting to get. However, we have every right to get the privacy, when a browser claims we have it. Right? Otherwise, we have been fooled badly. And, the unwanted consequences can be devastating.
OK Firefox, we have heard enough. You can rest assured that we are going to put your private browsing stuff to a real test. We sure hope you were telling the truth. Otherwise, we cannot handle one more disappointment. That would be just more than enough. Happy private browsing Firefox cyber guys.
There is a serious rumor we are dying with an anticipation of confirming or compromising, for quite some time. Have you heard something about it? Maybe, all we need is a pair of additional Google eyes and hands. Here it goes. The Obamacare asks from us to get the human implant chips, with no exceptions?
Allegedly, by the 2017 we should all have the new friends, which will go under our skin. Literally. These implants are supposed to improve the very quality of our lives. However, we all know that every time you hear a meaningless and ambiguous phrase, such as his one, something bad is to happen.
We will lose the latest illusion we used to have about our already deeply compromised privacy. It is a great thing to be able to pay bills with the simple wave of your hand, but do you really want to trade your privacy for that? Do we have to mention all troubling religious implications, as well?
Our world is supposed to meet its inevitable end, the very day we embrace the mark of the beast. Or, in other words, the human chip implants. Of all the things in the cyber universe, we had to deal with this one, first. Are we going to use a special WordPress implant for writing and reading blogs?
Poor old Facebook, it has to add new rule pages all the time. This time, Facebook wants to deal with nudity and terrorism. In this way, Facebook has joined the anti-nudity-coalition. Google and Twitter have already made it perfectly clear that only artistic or medicine oriented nudity is the only acceptable nudity.
On the other hand, it is not a secret that the jihadists can be easily caught in the controversy trap. They are fighting all the evils of the Western society, while at the same time they cannot imagine a single day without the Internet. No Facebook or Twitter, no new recruits nor followers. As simple as that.
For what is worth, Facebook has decided to introduce a new strict policy, when it comes to promotion or glorification of terrorism. The Islamic State tried to launch its social network called the Book of Caliphate, but the Anonymous hacker group made sure it could not stay online for a single day.
Until the next time, and some next set of new rules. In the meantime, make sure you do not upload any of your naked pictures, including positive comments or even worse “likes” for the news about terrorist attacks. We sure hope that the number of rules will not exceed the number of users to aplly them.
It is said that a kind word can heal any wound. Maybe, that was the very thought the creators of the TalkSpace app had on their minds when they had designed it. So, what is TalkSpace all about? To make the long story short, while using some plain English expressions, this is a cyber therapy.
When you hit a wall in your heart or head, you can subscribe on a weekly level. What do you get in return? Well, you can talk or chat with a professional therapist. The TalkSpace offers a possibility of attending a video conference in the real time. We should not forget the numerous forums.
These forums, you can attend for free. As you can see, someone has thought of a nice way to benefit from the fruitful world of apps. This is a truly win-win scenario for both therapists and people with the different kinds of psychological issues. Great thing, indeed. Providing therapy with no limitations.
When it comes to the physical pain and troubles, guess we will have to wait a little bit longer. Although, cyber words can heal your soul, cyber hands cannot heal your wounds or fix the bones. For what is worth, your cyber-app-therapist has all the time and patience in the world, just for you. Talk!
Is there such a thing as a bad app? Well, it is hard to tell. Why? On the one hand, you newbie apps, which are jumping out in an unprecedented number. On the other hand, it all comes down to the matter of your personal preferences. However, some apps are really the bad ones. No question about it.
Here is a quick overview of the most notorious ones. Unfortunately, this list can never be a final one. Girls Around Me is not a nice thing, if you are a girl whose movement is being tracked by an app. What about the app called Me So Holly? It shows you how would you look like a Jesus. The Door of Hope is not what you think.
This app tries to cure your homosexuality in 60 days. In addition, do you really want to know Who Is Jew? This app included a list of celebrity names for such a purpose. I Am Rich app allowed you to brag around for a symbolic price of only $999,99. With the Phone Story you could see how it looks making a phone in the third world country.
So, why are we telling you this story about the controversial apps? Well, there is no such a thing as a bad app police. That is why you have to keep your eyes open and alarm the cyber community as soon as you see one. There is no more efficient way to ensure the removal of a harmful app, than through a powerful public criticism. Have you seen one?
