Google Play Protect’ Android Security Suite

Google made a big deal of the new Google Play Protect system at this year’s Google I/O event, citing it as a strengthening of Android security. After a few months of waiting, Google Play Protect is beginning to roll out to devices. However, this isn’t actually a new system; it’s just a new way to present the features that were already there.

Play Protect encompasses several features that were completely separate until now. There’s malware scanning, lost phone tracking and locking, and Chrome Safe Browsing. The anti-malware features leverage Google’s machine learning platform to monitor apps for suspicious behavior, removing them from your phone before they can cause damage. You may be perplexed, wondering if Android had built-in malware scanning before. Yes, it did, but Google was very bad at making that known.
Android’s antivirus capabilities were first deployed on devices in 2013 when Jelly Bean was still the latest and greatest. At first, it only scanned apps as they were installed, but the service moved to a continuous-scanning model in 2014. Thus, even an app that didn’t look dangerous at installation could be caught red-handed if it tried to download a malicious module later. The only visible evidence of this system working was deep in the system settings, so few users even knew it was a thing.
Even though Google had its own malware scanning platform, alternative apps like Lookout, McAfee, and AVG have been some of the most popular downloads in the Play Store. Why? They are visible and proactive about device protection, sometimes to the point of being annoying and causing system slowdowns. Still, Google is taking some lessons from these apps by making Verify Apps more visible as part of Google Play Protect.

Like Verify Apps, the new Play Protect features will be delivered to virtually all Android devices by a Play Services update. This happens silently in the background, so you may already have the updated version. Play Protect is featured prominently at the top of your installed app list inside the Play Store. It shows you when the last scan was and confirms it found no problems. If there is a problem, the app is removed and you get a notification. The button in the app list lets you rescan apps, and a Googler I talked to confirms this does actually rescan apps — it’s not just a placebo. There is also a revamped Play Protect menu in the settings that shows recently scanned apps, system status, and lets you turn off protection (you shouldn’t).

The rollout is in full swing, so you probably already have the new version of Google’s security suite. Check the Play Store “My apps & games” page to find out.

Nokia 8 launched: Specs, top features and everything you must know

Nokia 8 smartphone was launched in August 2017. The phone comes with a 5.30-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1440 pixels by 2560 pixels at a PPI of 554 pixels per inch. 

The Nokia 8 is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, USB OTG, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). Sensors on the phone include Compass Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Barometer. Ambient light sensor,

The Nokia 8 is powered by 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and it comes with 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via a micro SD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Nokia 8 packs a 13-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 13-megapixel front shooter for selfie .

The Nokia 8 runs Android 7.1.1 and is powered by a 3090mAh non removable battery. It measures 151.50 x 73.70 x 7.90 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 160.00 grams.

About Nokia
Nokia used to be one of the world’s biggest mobile phone manufacturers but it fell behind with the advent of iPhone and Android smartphones. In 2014, Nokia’s Devices and Services division was sold to Microsoft. In 2016, Finnish company HMD Global bought a part of Microsoft’s feature phone business and has a licensing agreement that allows it to make smartphones under the Nokia brand.

Special features


The Nokia 8 is the first smartphone in the world which allows ‘Dual-Sight’ video to be live streamed natively and in real-time to social feeds such as YouTube and Facebook. Dual-Sight allows you to use the front and rear camera at the same time in a split screen view. This feature can be utilised for both photos and videos. Now, not everyone will like or even use this phone but for those who may need it, this feature can be the biggest reason to buy the latest Nokia phone. Nokia 8 users can backup unlimited photos and videos to Google Photos.
OZO Audio :

Nokia is promising a 360-degree fully immersive audio experience with the Nokia 8. The smartphone’s three microphones and Nokia’s acoustic algorithms allow you to capture 360 degree spatial surround sound. You will also be able to share 4K videos with OZO audio with anyone – binaural codecs ensure high fidelity playback even on devices without OZO Audio. Sounds neat, no?
Splash resistance

While the Nokia 8 does not come with IP68 dust and water resistance, it is splash proof (IP54) and will be able to withstand light rains and splashes of water.

Price and availability 

The Nokia 8 will go on sale globally in early September for 599 Euros, which roughly translates to around Rs 45,500. While there is no official word on the Indian launch, the smartphone is set to arrive in the country sometime in the month of September itself. Even if there is some delay in the launch — and the new Nokia does seem to like the delays a lot — the phone will come in October. The Nokia 8 is expected to be priced at Rs 39,999 in India to compete with the likes of the OnePlus 5. Again, there is nothing official about this price but we do feel that this very close to what Nokia will set for the Indian market. The smartphone is going to be available in four colours variants, namely Polished Blue, Polished Copper, Tempered Blue and Steel.

HBO and Game of Thrones Facebook and Twitter account hacked .

OurMine, a Saudi Arabia based hacking group hacked the official Twitter account of HBO and its Game of Thrones TV series on Wednesday night. Upon taking over the accounts, the group started sending their signature Tweets asking the HBO to contact the hackers so they can sell their IT security services to the network

“Hi, OurMine are here, we are just testing your security, HBO team, please contact us to upgrade the security – ourmine .org -> Contact,” said the group.

Other than HBO and GOT’s accounts, the group also took over Twitter feeds of “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver,” “Veep,” “Vinyl and “True Blood.” In total, all six hacked accounts sent same Twitters to their millions of followers. Here are some screenshots grabbed by Twitter users:

OurMine is the same group who are accused of using passwords stolen from previous data breaches especially MySpace and LinkedIn in 2016. Since then, the group has hijacked social media accounts of top celebrities, CEOs, media outlets including Google’s CEO Sunder Pichai (1), Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey (2), Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg (3), Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales (4), Variety magazine (5), BuzzFeed (6), Business Insider 

The same group also compromised Unity 3D Forums (8), YouTube accounts (9), Twitter accounts of BBC and NYT (10), National Geographic (11), Netflix and Marvel (12), Vine account of ex-PlayBoy model Amanda Cerny (13) and Twitter account of Pokémon Go’s Developer (14).

Last two months have been a hell for HBO:
HBO is under non-stop cyber attack since July this year. Starting with a hacking group called Mr. Smith who stole a trove of HBO data and leaked personal details of Viviane Eisenberg, the Executive Vice President Legal Affairs for Home Box Office, Inc.
Then a Reddit account uploaded the unaired episode 4 of Game of Throne’s season 7, however, later on, authorities in India arrested four people for uploading the episode on the Internet. It turned out it was an inside job.
But the nightmare didn’t end there. A day before yesterday, HBO Spain aired episode 6 of Game of Thrones’ season 7 which was supposed to be broadcast after six days of the incident. The episode remained online for 1 hour giving users enough time to rip and share over the Internet including Torrenting platforms.
At the time of publishing this article, all hijacked accounts were restored. Let’s see what’s next for HBO in the loop.
Just yesterday, in a devastating blunder, HBO Spain accidentally aired Episode 6 of Game of Thronesseason 7 five days prior to its official premiere.

The popular entertaining company is also facing a threat from hacker or group of hackers who claimed to have obtained nearly 1.5 terabytes of information from HBO.

Over two weeks ago, the unknown hackers dropped episodes of “Ballers” and “Room 104,” along with a script of the fourth episode of Game of Thrones on the internet.

This leak was followed by another dump of a half-gigabyte sample of stolen data, including the company’s emails, employment agreements, balance sheets, and the script of the upcoming GOT episode, demanding a ransom—nearly $6 Million in Bitcoins.

Although it was revealed that the company offered hackers $250,000 for extending the ransom payment deadline by one week, the proposal apparently failed to satisfy hackers, and they threatened to release more data every Sunday until the full ransom was paid.

1. The Original Big Three Social Sites
Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter; remember when these were the only big social media sites around? Well, times have changed but they are still massive players in the space. Make it a habit of posting your articles to “the big three” along with an engaging teaser. You’re more of a visual person? That’s perfect, Instagram and Tumblr to the rescue.

I’m guessing there are a handful of blogs out there that you follow and love. If you haven’t already, start interacting with them. You might follow them across social media or constantly check out their blog. If you do, start commenting and engaging with them and even their audience. Chances are you have more than one thing in common. Oh, and make sure to leave a link back to your blog .
3. Email Signature
Studies show that one of the most intimate and private places an online user can engage with you is via their email. So naturally, including your blog link in your email signature will generate interest or, at the very least, curiosity. Self-promotion has never been so easy!
4. Social Bookmarking Sites


Social bookmarking is a great means of inspiring online collaboration and the wisdom of crowds. It also tackles an issue that the search engines have trouble with – the human touch. The world-wide-web has billions of users, and if even an incy wincy percentage of those users share your post… do the math. I surely cannot, but I know the number is potentially BIG. Here’s a great list of some of the best bookmarking sites for you to promote your blog posts

Why avoid Windows Phone !

Windows, the most used operating system in the desktop and laptop world. In the year of 2010, Microsoft again started their journey into the smartphone world with their revolutionary Windows Phone 7 
OS. Over the years Windows Phone OS has walked a long way till Windows Phone 8.1 (Released in June 12 2014). Initially Windows Phone OS received a tremendous craze about the metro design of the OS and also for Nokia Lumia’s high megapixel cameras and screen. I purchased my Lumia in the middle of  2013 and I’m using my Windows Phone 8 device as my daily driver for last 7-8 months. After using this phone for almost 8 months I’m really annoyed with this device OS and today in this post I will share my experience with all the people around the world who is thinking about purchasing a Windows Phone either for their own usage or for giving it to someone I said earlier Windows Phone started to gain success specially for their Metro UI and their great marketing strategies, specially in Asian countries. Also Nokia, one of the most trusted brand in the 90’s started manufacturing their phone. Metro UI is really a minimalist UI and looked awesome when someone hold a Windows Phone for the first time, but after you purchase one and keep using it for daily basis you will be as amused as you are when you purchased the phone and within no time you will started feeling why did you wasted your money on this device. Anyways who have already purchased a Windows Phone and currently thinking the same that why did they purchase that device, I’m really sorry I really can’t help you much but in below I will share top 5 reasons to avoid purchasing Windows Phone for anyone.

1. Metro UI

I know that you might be thinking, am I nuts that I’m saying Metro UI is bad. Actually I’m not. Even I’m not saying that Metro UI is bad. The problem with Windows Phone and it’s Metro UI is that if you are going to use a Windows Phone for the first time in your life, you are gonna love it, but after using it for few months the interface will started to get boring and a little over complected. There is almost no ways to customize your Windows Phone like you can in any Android device present in the market. Metro UI is very clean, minimalist UI, but it does not have the x-factor of being amazing and keep being interesting after using the device for many months. On the other hand in your android device you can change the complete look and feel of your device, just by installing few themes, and after that you will start feeling that you have a complete new UI in front of you.

2. Disgusting App Support

If you are thinking to switch to Windows Phone from your existing iPhone or Android device, don’t even think about that. Windows App store is a complete dessert of apps. Most of the apps present in Windows Store doesn’t properly maintained by the developers like it used to be in Android or iPhone. Most of the apps you see in you are accustomed with in Android or iPhone, is not available in Windows Phone. After searching your favorite apps in Windows Store will become so frustrated that you will stop downloading apps on your phone. Not only that, but also every major company who develops apps fr anything, their main target is Android or iOS. Windows Phone is in the least priority to every app company and to every developer. Even if you get your app available in Windows Phone, still the kind of interface you will get in Android or iOS version of that app, you will never ever get in Windows Phone. As an example in the Windows Phone version of  Whatsapp, you can’t sent any audio or video which is present in your phone to anyone else. The only option you have is either sing the song by yourself or capture a video and then send.

3. Complex Interface

The complexity of Windows OS is really very higher than Android or iOS. Generally in android and iOS people are accustomed with drop-down notification for most of the daily settings changes like turning on Bluetooth, WiFi etc. But in Windows Phone there is no way to do that instead of digging deep into the settings and then turning the required things on. Tough there is app available in Windows Store like Connectivity Shortcuts, but this is nothing but a metro tile shortcut to sent you deep into the required setting page. Really frustrating and time-wasting. Not only that if you check the settings page of any Windows Phone, you will get so confused that it will take at least 10-15 mins to find out a small thing in your settings page.

4. Unstable Operating System

Yes, this is true. If you have purchased a Windows Phone recently then you will never ever feel this kind of problem in your phone. But after using it for months and if you generally don’t turn off your device often, you will start finding out the real image of Windows Phone OS. You might face problems like – phone hang, unable to receive incoming calls, screen auto brightness issue, touch smoothness issue and many more. The only way out you will have if any of this occur is to turn off your device, detach the battery from your phone, keep your phone like this for at least 15 mins then again turn on. Trust me, it will make you to kill your phone. if you visit the service center (which i have done many times), they will reformat your OS and again your phone will work fine for few weeks before it’s start showing the same problems again.

5. Even more

There are many more minor things which you will never wanted to try out with your daily driver smart phone. Some of them are mentioned below:
  • 1.Can’t change DNS & proxy of your WiFi connection
  • 2.Can’t charge your phone in Switch off state.
  • 3.Bluetooth receiving doesn’t work smoothly with not Windows Phones.
  • 4.No good and quality web browser available to handle rich HTML5/CSS3           websites.
  • 5.If you try to open large website your browser get auto closed.
  • 6.Windows App store doesn’t have any Google apps like G-mail, YouTube,           analytic etc.

System Restore on Windows 10 Computers

If something goes wrong with your Windows 10 computer, due to a new app installation or a recent driver upgrade, simply trying to uninstall or roll back the driver doesn’t always work. That’s where Windows 10 System Restore comes in, as it essentially lets you jump back to a previous time, when Windows was working just fine.

But how does that work, you ask? Well, it does that by creating “restore points” from time to time, generally when you install a new piece of software, or a Windows 10 update. Plus, it creates one every week anyway, and you can do so manually anytime.
Windows 10 restore points are effectively an image of the important Windows stuff, your system files, registry settings, and hardware drivers themselves. It doesn’t take any of your personal documents into consideration, so this isn’t a backup by any means. Depending on your system settings, a small part of your hard-drive is dedicated to storing these restore points, which automatically clears out the old to make space for the new. You’ll still need to back up all your personal data yourself, but Windows 10 restore points can help troubleshoot software issues on your Windows PC.
When you open System Restore, you’ll be presented with the available restore points, which will allow you to return to a specific time in the past. In short, Windows 10 System Restore allows you to revert to a state when your computer was working just fine.
Before you use the feature, you should know how it impacts your computer. Since Windows 10 System Restore doesn’t make a backup of your personal documents, restoring your system won’t change any of them. Instead, it keeps a track of all the apps you had, so once you choose a point, any apps that were installed after that will be gone, and the uninstalled ones will come back.
Once the process is done, you will need to re-run the installers/ uninstallers to properly get rid of the ones you don’t want. Thankfully, Windows 10 does present you with a list of affected programs, making this process simpler.

How to set up System Restore on Windows 10

By default, the Windows 10 System Restore option is only turned on for your primary drive, which contains all the necessary Windows files. If you’d like to extend that coverage, follow these steps:
  1. Hit Start, and type in “restore”.
  2. Choose Create a restore point.
  3. In the System Protection tab, under Protection Settings, you’ll see a list of available drives on your computer, with an On or Off label next to them.
  4. Choose the appropriate drive, and click Configure.
  5. Select Turn on system protection to enable System Restore. It should be on by default for C:.
  6. On the same dialog box, adjust the Max Usage slider as you prefer. The more room you make, the farther back you can choose to go later.

How to create a restore point on Windows 10

In some cases, you might want to create a restore point yourself, for example, if you’re about to install an app or a new driver from an unconfirmed source. Here’s how to go about that:
  1. Hit Start, and type in “restore”.
  2. Choose Create a restore point.
  3. In the System Protection tab, under Protection Settings, click Create.
  4. Then, give it a memorable name, and hit Create.
  5. After less a minute, you’ll be presented with a success message. Click Close.

How to use System Restore on Windows 10

Hopefully, you’ll never actually have to bother with this. But should that troubling day arrive, here’s how you can restore your system to an earlier point:
  1. Hit Start, and type in “restore”.
  2. Choose Create a restore point.
  3. In the System Protection tab, under System Restore, click System Restore.
  4. A new dialog box will give you a brief description of System Restore. Choose Next.
  5. On the next page, you’ll see the available restore points, with a date next to each of them. Select the desired one, and click Scan for affected programs.
  6. In a new dialog box, you’ll have two different lists – the top one shows programs that will be deleted, and the bottom one shows programs that will be restored. Once you’ve noted the important ones, click Close.
  7. If you’re ready, choose the appropriate restore point, and click Next.
  8. Windows 10 will ask you to confirm. Go through the details, and then click Finish.
  9. In a final dialog box, System Restore will inform you that it “cannot be interrupted”. Click Yes to begin.
The Windows 10 restore process will take over your computer, and finish in about 15 minutes, more depending on your CPU and hard-drive speed. Once it restarts, you can login to see if everything is working fine. If it didn’t have the desired result, you can revert to your latest system settings instead, since System Restore always creates another restore point before starting itself.
