How to auto delete your Google Web & Activity app data for up to 18 months

24-May-2019 11:20

Google’s auto delete essentially lets users manually control the period for which they want their data to be kept with the company, after which it will be deleted. There is the option of choosing from a period ranging from three months to 18 months. So, if a user chooses three months, then all of their data with Google will be deleted after this period and so on.More privacy controls will be included in Android Q, stable version for which will roll out in the coming months. Another privacy enhancement that Google introduced is that a user’s privacy settings will be available from one place in their account, which can be accessed by clicking on their profile picture.

There is still time before one can get their hands on the stable version of Android Q, but the auto delete privacy setting is available for everyone currently.

So how can one use auto delete for Web and App activity?

1. Log in to your Google Account.

2. Open the Web & Activity tab.

3. Click on the “Choose to delete automatically” button.

4. You should see three options including “Keep until I delete manually”, “Keep for 18 months then delete automatically”, and “Keep for 3 months them delete automatically”.

5. If you choose the first option then your data will be kept with Google and not deleted until you do it manually.

6. With the second option, all your data will be deleted after three months, while with the third option it is 18 months.

7. By default, Google does not delete your data and it is stored on its servers.

However, users should understand that the data will only be deleted after the expiry date, say three or 18 months, depending on what they choose. So, their data till the expiry date will still be there with Google.

Google has said that auto delete option will be made available for Location History as well in the coming weeks. This means that that users will be able to delete their Location history, which is basically almost every place they have travelled in the world. As of now, there is only the option of manually deleting data permanently.

Google knows what you buy online, even if you don’t directly purchase from it

22-May-2019 12:05

Google has been discreetly keeping a track of almost all of your online purchases, even if they have been purchased from non-Google websites such as Amazon, Flipkart or Swiggy as mostly all of these purchases come with online receipts which are sent directly to your personal Gmail account.

Advertising

A page by Google called ‘Purchases’ displays a list of most of the things which have been bought dating back to at least 2012, CNN reported.

According to the report, the reporter made purchases using different online services or mobile apps such as Amazon, DoorDash or Seamless, or in stores such as Macy’s, but never made purchases directly from Google. However, the digital receipts from the orders were sent to the Gmail account, so Google got to know of these purchases from them.

To check the tool, you will need to log on to https://myaccount.google.com/purchases with your Google credentials and then you will be able to observe all the purchases that you have made online

The CNN report further said quoting a Google spokesperson that, “To help you easily view and keep track of your purchases, bookings and subscriptions in one place, we’ve created a private destination that can only be seen by you”.

“You can delete this information at any time. We don’t use any information from your Gmail messages to serve you ads, and that includes the email receipts and confirmations shown on the Purchase page,” the spokesperson was quoted in the report.

However, the process of removing these purchases is not at all easy. You need to click on every order listed on the purchases page and click on ‘Remove Purchase’ option, the page will immediately prompt “To remove this purchase, delete the email” and it will redirect you to your Gmail inbox on proceeding.

How to use WhatsApp using your landline number

22-May-2019 11:15

Did you know that you can also use your landline number to send and receive messages using WhatsApp?

As astounding as it sounds, a special version of WhatsApp can be used to send and receive messages using your landline number. And the best thing about this trick is that you don't have to share your mobile number with strangers, if you don't want to.

The key to this mystery lies in the business centric app - the WhatsApp Business - launched by the company nearly a near ago in January last year. In case you aren't sure, WhatsApp Business is a special version of WhatsApp that is aimed at helping small businesses reach out to their customers and answer their queries using its platform.

To put it simply, you can use WhatsApp's Business app to use access WhatsApp via your landline. All you need is a smartphone compatible with WhatsApp and a landline (in working condition of course).

Once you have these basic requirements in place, all you need to do is follow these steps:

- Download the WhatsApp Business app on your smartphones.

- Open the app, agree to the terms and conditions and tap on Continue option.

- Now, a prompt will ask you to select your country code (+91 in case of India) and enter your contact number.

- Enter your landline number here. Remove the '0' from the beginning of your landline number.

- The app will try to verify the number by sending an OTP on your listed contact number. Since it is a landline, you won't be able to see message. Wait for a minute till verification by SMS fails.

- Next WhatsApp will show the other Call Me option. Tap on that.

- Now you will receive a call from WhatsApp on your landline wherein an automated voice will tell you your 6-digit verification code. Note this down carefully.

- Now enter this 6-digit OPT in your app. Doing so will verify your number.

-Once verification is complete, you can set up your profile picture, settings, About section to finish the setup process.

Once you have completed the setup, you can use WhatsApp on your smartphone using your landline.

WhatsApp discloses vulnerability that allowed Israeli spyware to be installed on iPhones

14-May-2019 10:00

A report from The Financial Times this afternoon details a vulnerability in WhatsApp that allowed attackers to inject Israeli spyware onto phones. The malicious code was developed by Israeli company NSO Group and transmitted by calling users via WhatsApp on iOS and Android.

The malicious code could be transmitted even if a user did not answer the WhatsApp call, the report explains. In many cases, the call would disappear from call logs, so it’s possible that users could have been targeted and not even realize it.

Many details about the vulnerability remain unclear, but the report suggests that the loophole was open for several weeks. In a statement, WhatsApp said:

“This attack has all the hallmarks of a private company known to work with governments to deliver spyware that reportedly takes over the functions of mobile phone operating systems,” the company said. “We have briefed a number of human rights organizations to share the information we can, and to work with them to notify civil society.”

According to the report, WhatsApp is too early into its own investigations of the attack to “estimate how many phones were targeted.” WhatsApp is used by over 1.5 billion worldwide and is owned by Facebook

WhatsApp reportedly disclosed the issue to the United States Department of Justice last week, and started deploying a fix to its servers on Friday. Engineers worked through Sunday before deploying a patch for customers today, the report says.

NSO Group develops tools such as Pegasus and markets them to governments around the world as a way to fight terrorism and crime. In a statement to The Financial Times, it said that it “would, or could not, use its technology in its own right to target any person or organization.”

Facebook 'labels' posts by hand, posing privacy questions

12-May-2019 12:55

Over the past year, a team of as many as 260 contract workers in Hyderabad, India has ploughed through millions of Facebook Inc photos, status updates and other content posted since 2014. The workers categorize items according to five "dimensions," as Facebook calls them. These include the subject of the post - is it food, for example, or a selfie or an animal? What is the occasion - an everyday activity or major life event? And what is the author`s intention - to plan an event, to inspire, to make a joke?

The work is aimed at understanding how the types of things users post on its services are changing, Facebook said. That can help the company develop new features, potentially increasing usage and ad revenue. Details of the effort were provided by multiple employees at outsourcing firm Wipro Ltd over several months. The workers spoke on condition of anonymity due to fear of retaliation by the Indian firm. Facebook later confirmed many details of the project. Wipro declined to comment and referred all questions to Facebook.

The Wipro work is among about 200 content labeling projects that Facebook has at any time, employing thousands of people globally, company officials told Reuters. Many projects are aimed at "training" the software that determines what appears in users` news feeds and powers the artificial intelligence underlying many other features.

4 More Areas AI is Revolutionizing

11-May-2019 12:50

Artificial Intelligence has been able to revolutionize a variety of areas like healthcare, e-commerce, manufacturing, and medicine. However, it does not stop there as more sectors seem to transition every day. Here are four more areas AI is revolutionizing:

Finance

Audit firms are coming up with a robust set of AI tools that utilize predictive analytics properties for their non-audit and audit customers. These tools allow the firms to assess, interrogate, and contest the predictions that underpin asset valuation of the customers’ balance sheets. Audit and accounting firms are also using cognitive software that goes through thousands of pages of agreements or contracts and makes a summary almost immediately by set criteria about what is and is not needed. Research indicates that 80% of accounting and finance tasks will be carried out with automation in the foreseeable future.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

RPA is an upcoming business process automation technology. Its heavily relies on the idea of AI or software robots. This system develops an action list that needs automation through watching the performance of the task by the user in the GUI of the application. The system then repeats the tasks directly in the graphical user interface. Robotic process automation technology uses artificial intelligence to execute repetitive, rules-based, and back-end tasking that programmers or workers don’t want to do, or couldn’t do as fast as the RPA system. An example of an RPA tool is one that receives an email comprising an invoice, extracts the information, and then types it into the bookkeeping system.

Security

IT companies are offering services and products that proactively curb, as opposed to reactively detecting, the execution of persistent and advanced malware and threats. Companies are also using SAP’s machine learning solutions and cloud platform in the management of their databases of collected information like customer details or sales transactions, apps, relational databases, and other sources. According to research, 44% of companies are using AI to detect and prevent security intrusions.

Education

Companies are using AI to make customized educational content. Deep learning is being used to absorb and make an analysis of existing course materials, syllabi, and textbooks. The technology comes up with customized learning materials that include multiple choice tests, chapter summaries, and textbooks. Additionally, AI is also being used to reduce the time used in the grading of school assignments. Students upload their assignments to a school platform that has incorporated AI. Multiple assignments get graded at once. The software then offers instructors with an analysis of where the students got wrong and right.

Supreme Court issues notice to Centre on plea to regulate Netflix, Amazon Prime Video

11-May-2019 12:20

The Supreme Court has issued a notice to the Centre on a plea seeking framing of guidelines to regulate the functioning of online media streaming platforms such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

The apex court was hearing a petition by NGO Justice for Rights Foundation, which alleged that online streaming platforms show “uncertified, sexually explicit and vulgar” content.

The NGO also alleged that the contents were violative of the Indian Penal Code and the Information Technology Act.

The government said the content on online platforms is not being regulated by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

As per the petition, online platforms stream content which is full of vulgarity, sexually explicit, pornographic, profane, virulent, religiously forbidden, morally unethical.

The petition is against all video streaming apps, that also include Hotstar, known as "over-the-top" broadcasters.

Putin reportedly approves creation of a separate internet

04-May-2019 19:00

Russian President Vladimir Putin has reportedly signed a law to create a separate internet for security reasons.

On Wednesday, Putin signed a law that would start development of Russian's own internet, according to CNN. Government documents explaining the law reportedly say Russia will develop a "sustainable, secure and fully functioning" internet.

The law will also create a monitoring and management service controlled by the Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications, also known as Roskomnadzor. When needed, the agency will reportedly be able to cut off non-Russian traffic to make the internet completely insulated from foreign entities.

As of now, this separate internet is only a concept, and it may take time before it becomes a reality.

Microsoft launches new cloud services for AI for 2019 conference

04-May-2019 12:10

Microsoft Corp on Thursday announced new tools for software makers aimed at making technologies such as artificial intelligence and blockchain easier for businesses to use.

Microsoft released the tools ahead of its software developer conference next week in Seattle. Once known mostly for its Windows personal computer operating system, the company now relies on revenue growth from its cloud-based computing and software services, most of which are sold to other businesses.

While Microsoft still trails the cloud computing leader Amazon.com Inc’s Amazon Web Services in revenue, it has taken a different approach to the market, designing many of its services to be run in either Microsoft’s Azure data centres, its customers private data centres, or a combination of the two.

Amazon, by contrast, at first asked customers move their data to its own servers, though it too has in recent years moved toward Microsoft’s “hybrid” approach.

Some of the world’s most vulnerable passwords

03-May-2019 13:05

Today is a dedicated day for one of the most important part of our day-to-day lives, passwords. There’s a password for almost everything now starting with smartphones, emails, net banking, Netflix accounts, and more. On ‘World Password Day’, we take a look at the most used passwords, and a few tips on how to up your game with passwords.

The most commonly used password globally is ‘123456’. This was also the most attempted password used by cyber criminals to enter the Mumbai cloud server honeypot, according to a study by Sophos. More passwords that made it to the list were 1234, admin, ubnt, and 12345. The UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) also revealed that 123456 were appearing in over 23 million passwords.

Using the same password for multiple accounts seems understandable since it’s not easy remembering them. However, this makes users vulnerable to cyber criminals when the same password is compromised. Here are a few tips on why it’s important to keep passwords protected.

Unique passwords:

Create unique and hard to guess passwords for your accounts. Keep your passwords at least eight characters long and include an uppercase letter, a number and symbols. It is highly advised to not keep one’s birth date, kid’s name and such personal details as passwords as they are one of the easiest to guess.

Password managers:

Remembering passwords and that too difficult ones can be a big task. For those who find it difficult in remembering passwords can opt for password managers. Google Chrome comes with a built-in password manager on the browser. Smartphones from companies like Samsung and Apple also come with tools like Samsung Knox and iCloud Keychain for password protection.

Multi-factor authentication:

For added protection, it’s advised to use multi-factor authentication for passwords. This security tool adds a secondary layer of protection to accounts in addition to passwords. For example, Google’s two-factor authentication requires users to enter a six-digit code sent to their registered mobile number.

5G could be the foundation of next-gen 'cloud VR'

02-May-2019 17:50

Virtual reality proponents see 5G as part of the answer to an vexing problem: What happens if you want high-resolution VR, but don’t have a powerful enough PC to run it?

Meet cloud VR, the next stage in VR’s evolution. Rendering the scene on a remote server and then streaming it to a headset eliminates the need for a powerful CPU. But fail to deliver a responsive experience, and users get disoriented and nauseous. A series of demos hosted by AT&T and Ericsson on Monday suggested a number of solutions, all using 5G as a high-speed, low-latency backhaul that proponents think could make cloud VR a future reality.

Eventually, the AR/VR industry even hopes you’ll take the technology outside, perhaps fulfilling the promise that Google Glass once offered. But to do so, you’ll need a high-bandwidth, low-latency wireless infrastructure. Here again, the 5G industry is volunteering.

New York Attorney General to Investigate Facebook Email Collection

30-Apr-2019 12:15

SAN FRANCISCO — The New York State attorney general’s office plans to open an investigation into Facebook’s unauthorized collection of more than 1.5 million users’ email address books, according to two people briefed on the matter.

The inquiry concerns a practice unearthed in April in which Facebook harvested the email contact lists of a portion of new users who signed up for the network after 2016, according to the two people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the inquiry had not been officially announced.

Those lists were then used to improve Facebook’s ad-targeting algorithms and other friend connections across the network.

The investigation was confirmed late Thursday afternoon by the attorney general’s office.

How to Enable Night Mode for Chrome on Android and Other Tools for Book Lovers

25-Apr-2019 17:30

There are two types of people in this world. One who like the night mode and others who are happy with the light mode that Android usually offers. Although, the night mode is designed to reduce strain on eyes during the night, people who use it prefer to utilize it during the day as well.

For the longest time, users have been asking for the night or the dark mode on Google Chrome. While there are many night-mode extensions for Chrome on desktop, the feature was missing in the Android variant up until now. But, thankfully, it’s here. Now, you can enable the night mode for Chrome Android too.

Step 1: Open Google Chrome on your Android device and tap the three-dot icon in the top-right corner. Then, tap Settings

Step 2: Under Settings, hit Accessibility. Then, enable Simplified view. This is a one-time step

NIGHT MODE FOR CHROME ON ANDROID

Once you have changed the page view to the Simplified view, as shown above, you will get new customization options. You can change themes – Light, Dark, and Sepia, and also customize the font style and size in the Simplified view.

To access and enable them, tap the three-dot icon in the top-right corner and select Appearance from the menu. Please note that you should be in the Simplified view to access the Appearance options.

Update: Google Gmail, Microsoft Outlook.com add 'dynamic email,' to avoid new tabs

05-Apr-2019 11:15

Google's Gmail will suck in a small corner of the internet to allow you to research hotel rooms or add a pin to your Pinterest board from within an email.

Google said Tuesday it has begun rolling out what it calls “dynamic email,” an enhancement to its web-based Gmail page that in some cases eliminates the need to open a separate tab to accomplish a task. Microsoft also said it will add support for the same technology, known as AMP HTML preview.

Dynamic email feels somewhat like an extension of the dynamic replies that will pop up in response to an existing Gmail message, or the autocomplete functions available in Google Search: a simple tool to save time. Dynamic email works by sucking a small portion of the web directly into the email pane, automating a particular task.

Here’s an example: In Google Docs, if a collaborator comments on a line in a sales contract, they can notify you via Gmail to take action. Instead of a link to the document that you’re forced to open, you can simply comment directly in the email, and the comment will be added to the document in question.

WhatsApp Update for Android Brings Forwarding Info, More Traces of Dark Mode

01-Apr-2019 13:15

WhatsApp was recently spotted testing a new Forwarding Info feature that will tell users the number of times a message was forwarded, and also showed a frequently forwarded label when a message has been forwarded more than four times. However, the features were not enabled until now. It appears that the latest beta build of WhatsApp for Android has introduced the at least one of the features via the open beta channel for all testers. Following the WhatsApp beta update (version 2.19.87), we can now see the number of times a message has been forwarded. Moreover, the update also brings more traces of the long-awaited dark mode for WhatsApp, but there is no word when that will arrive with a beta or stable build. Read on for more details about the latest WhatsApp update for the beta Android app.

WhatsApp Forwarding Info:

After being spotted as 'disabled by default' in a beta build around a week ago, the WhatsApp beta 2.19.87 update has finally enabled the message forward info feature. All users who received the beta update can now see the number of times a message has been forwarded. However, we found that this information is available only when you are the sender of a message that has been forwarded to multiple users. This can be checked by long-pressing the forwarded message and tapping on the information icon ('i' in a circle) at the top.

However, if you have received a forwarded message that has been sent to multiple users, you cannot check the number of times it has been forwarded. Additionally, the ‘frequently forwarded' tag which was spotted recently for messages that have been forwarded more than four times is nowhere to be seen in the latest beta build. We can verify both the aforesaid findings after testing it out multiple times with the WhatsApp update for the beta Android app.

WhatsApp (Spotted on Beta) Fingerprint Authentication Feature of Android App

30-Mar-2019 19:40

WhatsApp has updated its Android beta app to version 2.19.83, and traces of a new Authentication feature were spotted. The company has been working on bringing this feature since a while now, and the latest update shows that WhatsApp has made a lot of progress. Beta tracker WABetaInfo has shared screenshots showing how the Authentication feature can be enabled in Settings, and what the interface will look like. Unfortunately, this feature is disabled by default, so it won't work for beta users as of yet. It remains unclear when WhatsApp plans to roll it out for the stable version users.

The tracker says that the Authentication feature will let WhatsApp users lock their account, and unlock it using a fingerprint sensor. This feature should be enabled in Settings >Account >Privacy > Use Fingerprint to Unlock. Once it's enabled, WhatsApp will register your fingerprint. It will then ask if you want the app to be locked immediately (after you leave the app)/ after 1 minute/ after 10 minutes/ or after 30 minutes.

WhatsApp will show a sign indicating to users that they needs to unlock the app using fingerprint authentication. It will show an error if the app is not unlocked after multiple tries. As mentioned, this feature isn't enabled yet, so you won't see it even if you are on the latest beta version 2.19.83. This feature should roll out for beta users in next updates. Notably, iPhone users already have the feature in the stable version of the iOS app, and apart from fingerprint authentication via Touch ID, facial recognition via Face ID is also available to them.

WhatsApp is also working on Dark Mode, and it was spotted in one of the recent beta updates. However, there is no word on when the WhatsApp Dark Mode will make its way to the stable version. Recent beta versions also indicate that WhatsApp is working new forwarding features as well.

Is WhatsApp planning to leave India? No, but it is concerned about Govt. demands

25-Feb-2019 13:20

For better or worse, probably better, WhatsApp is staying put. It does have some concerns about the kind of accountability that the Indian government has demanded from it.

If today morning you woke up to the headlines screaming that WhatsApp was going to leave India because of some government demands, rest easy. It's not happening. For better or worse, probably better, WhatsApp is staying put. It does have some concerns about the kind of accountability that the Indian government has demanded from it, and it still doesn't deny it won't pull out of India, but for now you can keep using WhatsApp.

The headlines that you read today morning are apparently based on some wrong inference that was taken from a few statements that Carl Woog, WhatsApp's Head of Communications, gave news agency IANS. However, Woog apparently never said -- and on this we are going by the statement attributed to Woog in the news story -- that WhatsApp will leave, or is planning to leave, India. Instead, this was what he said when he was asked if WhatsApp would quit India when forced to break encryption in the app:

"The proposed changes are going overboard and are not consistent with strong privacy protections that people around the world are seeking... Given the end-to-end encryption we have in place, the regulations will require us to re-architect our product. It will not help to speculate what is to come. There is a process in place in India to discuss this issue."

So basically, he doesn't say that WhatsApp will leave India. The problem was that Woog didn't categorically denied pulling out of India, and that probably fuelled the impression that WhatsApp might leave India.

Now, you can report offensive and abusive WhatsApp messages to DoT

25-Feb-2019 13:15

WhatsApp has joined hands with Department of Telecom(DoT) to help report fake or abusive messages received on the app.

Everything comes with a price including popularity. WhatsApp serves as the country's most widely used chat app but the app also has to fight its battle against fake news and harassing messages almost every day. The simplistic design and the convenience of sending messages has made WhatsApp an easy target for anyone to spread fake messages and create havoc among public. But this is going to end now as the chat company has joined hands with the Department of Telecom(DoT) to help report about those who sent fake or abusive messages.

WhatsApp was pushed in troubled waters last year for serving as a channel for spreading fake news that triggered several incidents of mob lynchings in various parts of the country. The chat company since then has been taking several steps to fight against this problem. There is also another problem of some people sending abusive or harassing messages on WhatsApp and now the company plans to take on this.

According to a PTI report, you can now file a complaint with the DoT against offensive messages received on WhatsApp. To report, the receiver of abusive message should take a screenshot of the message along with the mobile number and mail it to ccaddn-dot@nic.in. The move comes following many public figures, including journalists, complaining of receiving abusive and threatening messages.

"We will take it up with the telecom operators and police heads for necessary action," DoT Controller Communications Ashish Joshi said in a tweet.

Joshi also tweeted a complete list of all the Licensed Service Area (LSA) saying that there is a lack of awareness about the LSA units among public. The list includes names of LSA, respective headquarter, name of the officer, office address, his fax, landline and email address.

Why Intel Is in Such Horrid Condition

13-Feb-2019 12:35

Intel released earnings last week, and it was ugly. Yes, the company beat expectations on the bottom line, but it missed big on the top line and the outlook was dismal. Looking under the covers, the company is a mess. The expected CEO announcement -- it has been operating with an interim CEO -- didn't occur.

AMD's earnings are expected to be very strong. AMD just made some organizational changes that suggest an increase in its competitive attack in view of Intel's weaknesses.

I'll walk you through what is wrong with Intel -- why it missed, and why its outlook is so grim -- and then close with my product of the week: one of the first flying taxis that is actually flying. It continues to amaze me how quickly autonomous flying vehicles are advancing.

Robotic Arm Will Assist Now In Rehabilitation Centers

04-Feb-2019 20:25

We have been watching Artificial Intelligence making its mark in every field but have you ever thought of patients recovering mentally, through Robotic Technology. Hearing news daily about robots is fun surely and by that, we can have the idea of how rapidly the technology is growing. Same goes in the field of Rehabilitation centers this time.

The medical sector is surely at a good phase of development and using the help of Artificial Intelligence for years to cure patients but this time we have something of really great fun. Patients at rehabilitation centers will now be able to have an entertainment zone which has begun with the game “tic-tac-toe.” The game will be played by a robotic arm and it will motivate patients for their rehabilitation exercises.

We have come across this news by the Techcrunch. They have mentioned about Israel, they have researchers at Ben-Gurion University in the Negev. They are using Artificial Intelligence in many ways to help rehabilitation patients get cured with maintaining the zeal of their own, which will be helped by these robotic arms.

Google Assistant Gets More Features, Greater Reach

10-Jan-2019 18:40

Google this week debuted a slew of new capabilities for its artificial intelligence software, Google Assistant, at CES in Las Vegas.

One of the headliners was a preview of Google Assistant Connect. The new platform lets device manufacturers incorporate Google Assistant into their products easily and cost-effectively.

Connect uses Google's existing smart home platform to expand to new device types, while making device setup and discovery easy for consumers. A manufacturer could create a continuous e-ink display projecting weather or calendar information, for example, while using Connect to drive content from a linked smart speaker.

"The key here is making device setup and discovery easy for consumers," observed Jack Narcotta, senior industry analyst for smart home strategies at Strategy Analytics.
