Instagram will Help Users Recover Their Hacked Accounts

In today’s age, there is not a single person who is not using social media for various reason. Updating their social media sites and pages are the first thing people do in the day. But what happens when one day you wake up only to find out that your social media account has been hacked? – It sure gives you chills and makes hopeless.

In the recent past, Instagram users faced the same situation. A lot of Instagram users found out that their accounts have been hacked and they had no access to log into their accounts. Some even had to take help of professional hackers to regain access to their logged out accounts. This was the darkest period for those who swear by their Instagram. What makes it worse for them is that for a period of time there was no support from Instagram to help their users.

However, came the good news for such users as Instagram is going to introduce a security feature that can help users to recover their hacked accounts.

According to Vice, the social media giant assured users to have better safety and recovery tools form now on. This is the first time that a social media portal has announced such an innovative feature that would not only provide full proof security to their users but also give them a way to come out of the locked-out situation whenever the need be.

Nothing could be better than having a way to recuperate the hacked account. And to materialize this idea the social media giant, Instagram, is working on an application that would give users a way to retrieve their account easily. Not only that, but they are also trying to come up with some extra features that would make it next to impossible for hackers to steal the data.

The need for taking such action came when, overnight, Instagram users could not have access to their accounts and they had to seek the help of counter hackers to get their accounts unlocked.

Instagram’s spokesperson even showed concern and said “We know that losing access to your account can be a distressing experience. We have measures in place to stop accounts from being hacked in the first place, as well as measures to help people recover their accounts. But we heard from the community that these measures aren’t enough, and people are struggling to regain access to their accounts,”

The security system is in process and will be in action soon. It will be available on Android and iOS. The spokesperson assured that it “will make it easier for you to sign in and reclaim your account if it has been hacked,

Keeping in mind that it could be possible that hacker have access to user’s email account or phone number he informed that “When you regain access to your account, we will take additional measures to ensure a hacker cannot use codes sent to your email address [or] phone number to access your account from a different device.”

This process is built to help users access back to their accounts even if the hacker had changed the credentials.

The spokesperson also assured that “your username is safe for a period of time after any account changes, meaning it can’t be claimed by someone else if you lose access to your account. With this feature, we give the account holder the security of knowing that their username will not be available to be claimed by someone else for a period of time following any changes.”

Well, it sure gives a sense of relief to all the users that their accounts are not only safe but it is also possible to regain access to their hacked account. Although, it is not the first time that Instagram users have faced suck situation; about last year some of the high profile data was in danger and accounts were hacked. It makes it be the high time to take such an initiative.

After a point in time when life seems to be settled and the things that you once desired has been accomplished you try to search for new horizons. One such new horizon was. It was only a year ago that I started this journey and now the journey has become a part of my existence.

Beware Spammers! Whatsapp is Palnning to Take Legal Action Against Spammers

Whatsapp is Palnning to Take Legal Action Against Spammers

There is not a single person on the Earth who is not irritated with spam emails and messages. Whenever we open our mailbox, there are one or two spam emails laying the spam section every day. Or, there are texts every now and then that tells you to lose weight in three days and what not. Even on social chat groups, via Whatsapp, spammers send too many messages to irritate you enough. But what do we do other than just ignoring them? – Well, say no more. Our cry has been heard.

Whatsapp has given us one of the best news of all time. In the future, your spammer could land into jail or suffer a huge penalty for bugging with stupid messages. Don’t believe us?

Scroll down and read the full story below:

According to source, Whatsapp is going to take legal action against users who bug with too many messages. They are bringing a policy that would stop users or spammers who flood inboxes with a huge number of messages to anyone. According to Whatsapp such people do not use the service rather miss use it by sending too many messages or bulk automated messages. It is an abuse of free messaging app and a very annoying thing to do to any particular person.

The spoke person of the company said:

“We’ve also stepped up our ability to identify accounts that misuse WhatsApp, which helps us ban two million accounts globally per month.” Well, it is clear that Whatsapp knows how to be true to its company’s policies this is why they are ready to take an action against about two million accounts per month.

The company clarified that Whatsapp is a free messaging app that allows users to send private messages and stay connected. Its Whatsapp Business app is for companies that are dedicated to their customer and send them informative updates. The chatting app giant would not tolerate any kind of miss use of their service by spammers and to put an end to it legal action will be taken.

On WhatsApp official page the information was put up that the company is “committed to reinforcing the private nature of our platform and keeping users safe from abuse” it further says “Beginning on December 7, 2019. WhatsApp will take legal action against those we determine are engaged in or assisting others in the abuse that violates our terms of service, such as automated or bulk messaging.”

The information on the page also said that the efforts will be done especially during the elections where supporters of particular parties “may attempt to send messages at scale.”

This is sure a good news for all of us who are fed up with promotional automated messages, but a bad one who think WhatsApp is some kind of a platform to attract traffic to their own petty business. So if you are one of the spammers, be alarmed as Whatsapp has stated that proper “legal action” would be taken against anyone who would abuse the free service and go against the messaging app’s policy.

Whatsapp is a private messaging App and we all should just respect this fact.

The Social App For People Craving For Everything Local

The Social App for People Craving for Everything Local

Ever feel like the social app you’re using is just too big for you? Big, in this case, is more of a concern of the proximity of your contacts. Social networks understandably almost always have a global scope. That being said, wouldn’t it be neat if you’ll be able to interact with your friends and people whom you share interests with on a more local level?

Chickku is able to provide this perk by focusing on connecting people within a certain local area. Take note that the app is more than just about conducting social activities and dating (a given for social networking app of this nature), though.

It also presents itself as a good medium through which you can buy and sell products locally, know the local events and even the best local places that you can try out for food and other social endeavours. It’s for this reason why it wouldn’t be fair to label it as just a social networking app. It defies being categorized, actually, and that’s a ready advantage for any app.

Chickku immediately immerses you into the local happenings by giving you a feed of everything that is being posted by users who are also within your area. These could range from stores selling local electronics to announcements of a live band that will be playing on a certain date. What’s awesome is that when you click on one post, you’ll be able to get more details about (e.g. its venue, how far it is from you, the exact time, or how long a certain shopping offer will be available) .

You will see the total number of views that each post has received and even have all the freedom to leave your comments regarding. The same can be said for the topics of your posts, as long as they are all about the locality, that is.

You can make restaurant recommendations or answer queries about local events. Are you a local business that’s selling some special products and wares? Chickku is a good platform to promote your business.

Chickkus’s approach may seem limiting in terms of its focus on locality, but it’s apparent that it also has a stark level of versatility with regards to the number of other singular features it’s able to offer.

It can be argued that plenty of people nowadays are beginning to prefer the advantages of being able to conduct online social activities in a more local manner. It gives you a great overview of what’s happening within your immediate area, which is what most people are undoubtedly more interested in rather than anything happening miles away.

Make Some Room For The Incredible Adventure That is Beary

Make Some Room For The Incredible Adventure That is Beary

Rescue Beary is an adventure puzzle-style game that reinvents exhausted gameplays of the genre instead opting for an endearing water physics interface. The story’s plot revolves around a stranded bear called early’ whose plane crashes into the deep ocean leaving him lost in turquoise waters.

Players are responsible for safely guiding the protagonist across various levels and eventually safe to shore whilst dodging threats such as sharks, whirlwinds, and obstructive logs.  Features Available for download on both Apple and GooglePlay Stores and iTunes,

Beary comes imbued with the following features:

i)  A mesmerizing water setting that makes for beguiling eye candy.

ii)  Bonus accessories such as ropes, bombs, etc to spruce up gameplay.

iii)  Progressively difficult levels that are fun and challenging in equal measure.

iv)  Offline playability as no internet connection is necessary to access essential features.

v)  Three fish varieties to be collected for each level.

vi)  Cuddly animations and excellent cartoony aesthetics.

vii)  Controls that are easy to learn and highly responsive as well.

How the game works As mentioned before, gameplay hinges on a water physics concept where you maneuver the lead character across an aqua backdrop in a course demarcated by blocked logs. Movement basically involves the use of tap-triggered ripples to generate motion in one direction or the other depending on the position of the wave.

Bombs also work in a similar fashion although they generate more thrust while ropes are also important tools that can be used to get past obstacles.   Whilst doing all that, you are also required to collect fish in the field of play to replenish Beary’s dwindling energy levels as well as get to treasures guarded by menacing sharks.

If you kick the bucket, there is a revival option that lets you retrace Beary’s steps for a portion of your coins which you earn after successfully completing levels.

Why Beary is cut from a different cloth The controls are simple but commendably challenging to figure out generally relying on a trial and error approach that makes the game unpredictable and consequently fun. Plus, the interface is quite idyllic and picturesque with the visual appeal of the game being of the highest order.

Is it worth your time? With a unanimous 5/5 rating from reviews on GooglePlay Store so far, Beary is without a doubt doing everything right. Nothing but praise after praise crops up from those who’ve experienced the game first hand which goes a long way to show that it’s certainly one worthy of a place on your home screen.
