How to hide whatsapp message

Any archived chats will automatically unarchive upon receipt of a newmessage from that chat. However, you can manually unarchive a chat by searching for a contact name or message from that contact.

Disable Read Receipts

Read Receipts are the two little blue check marks next to a message that signal when the message has been read. They’re handy, but sometimes you don’t want people knowing that you’ve seen their message already—usually because you don’t have the time to reply right then and it could make the sender feel like they aren’t important. To display read receipts:

  1. In WhatsApp, go to Settings > Account > Privacy
  2. Toggle the Read Receipts option to off.

Hide ‘Last Seen’ timestamp

WhatsApp allows others to see when when you were last on the app by default However you can disable the ‘Last Seen’ timestamp so no one can see the last time you were on the app or just select people can.

  1. In WhatsApp, go to Settings > Account > Privacy
  2. Tap “Last Seen” and then select either My Contacts, which lets only people in your contacts see your status, or Nobody, which doesn’t let anyone see your status.

Backup and Restore WhatsApp conversations

WhatsApp allows you to backup your conversations so you can transfer them to a new phone. This is handy considering how often people switch phones. What’s you’ve backup up your conversations you can restore them on your new device.

  1. In WhatsApp, go to Settings > Chats > Chat Backup
  2. Tap Back Up Now.

To restore chats from a backup, just download the WhatsApp app on a new device and open it. You’ll then be promoted to decide if you want to restore chats from the previous backup.

A really cool feature of WhatsApp is that you can save conversations as a text file. This is great for record keeping purposes. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Open the chat for the individual or group.
  2. Tap on the Menu Button.
  3. Tap on More.
  4. Tap on Email chat.
  5. Choose whether to Attach Media or not.

An email will be composed with your chat history attached as a text document.

  1. Tap the conversation by the person you want to block.
  2. Tap the header of the conversations (where it says their name or number).
  3. Tap Block this Contact.

Mute group chats

Group chats in WhatsApp are great—they allow you to talk to a number of people at a time and thus save your from repeating yourself in individual conversations. But group chats can also get annoying when only a few people are carrying on talking, yet you keep getting notifications for everything they see. You can of course just leave the group chat to stop this—or do this to disable the group chat’s notifications:

  • On iPhone: open the group chat, tap the subject to get the Group Info screen, and then tap Mute and then choose the time frame.
  • On Android, open the chat, tap the Menu button, and tap Mute and then choose the time frame.

By default what apps automatically saves all the media files you send and receive. This is handy, but the autosave feature can quickly take up space in your phone, especially if people send a lot of video. Here’s how to stop media files from being automatically saved:

  1. In WhatsApp, go to Settings > Chats and toggle the Save Incoming Media switch to off.

Star a message

Not many people know this, but WhatsApp lets you star individual messages as favorites. This is handy if a message has important information, like a phone number or address. Instead of having to swipe back through conversations to find it again, starred messages can quickly be viewed all in one place.

  1. Tap and hold the message until the pop up menu appears.
  2. Tap the star button to star the message.

The Department of State Services has detained Mr. Baba-Inna, who is the Aide De Camp to the wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari over an allegation of N2.5 billion fraud.

Spokesman for the DSS,  Mr. Nnochirionye Afunanya, told our correspondent that the case was handed over to the agency by the Police authority.

“His case was handed over by the Police and investigation is ongoing,” he said.

Aisha was said to have alleged that Baba-Inna received huge donations from politicians, businessmen, and women on her behalf and refused to hand them over to her.

She was, therefore, said to have urged the Inspector General of Police,  Mr. Ibrahim Idris, to arrest and compel Mr. Baba-Inna to refund the money, estimated at N2.5billion.

Our correspondent gathered that the DSS had set up a team of investigators to unravel the case.

It was also gathered that the team had asked for the bank accounts of the police officer and that of his wife, and would also visit his house.

Google launches new tools to let parents turn off their teenager’s smartphone remotely

Parents of teens glued to their smartphones now have a new way to pry them away from their gadgets 

parents of teenagers glued to their smartphones now have a new way to pry them away from their gadgets.

Google has launched new tools on its free Family Link app designed to set “digital ground rules” for teenagers.

The app was launched in March and provides parents with weekly activity reports on their child’s phone usage. It also allows parents to block certain apps and lock their child’s device remotely.

Up until now, the app was designed to help control the smartphone habits of children 13 and under. However, the new update extends those controls to older teenagers.

Google has also added the ability for parents to remotely lock their teenagers’ accounts on the app using Google Assistant.

For example, parents can say ‘Hey Google, lock Harry’s device,’ and teens will have a few minutes to finish what they are doing before their smartphone is turned off.

Teenagers, however, have the ability to override the controls, although Google says it will let parents know if they do.

Google has launched new tools on its free Family Link app designed to set "digital ground rules" for teenagers   

If teens choose to turn off the tools they will have to wait 24 hours until the phone is unlocked.

Google family and kids director Paulo Golgher said: “Over the coming days, we’ll make Family Link available to more families, on more devices, and in nearly every country in the world.”

The app is only available on Android smartphones and iPhones. According to Google’s PlayStore it has been downloaded more than a million times. Family Link will also soon be available for Chromebook laptops.

Donald Tusk: Theresa May’s Brexit trade plan won’t work

EU leaders in Salzburg

Donald Tusk said the plans risked undermining the EU’s single market.

He was speaking at the end of an EU summit in Salzburg where leaders of the 27 remaining member states discussed Brexit.

Mrs May said her proposals were the “only serious credible” way to avoid a hard border in Northern Ireland.

She said she had held “frank” talks with Mr Tusk, adding: “Yes, concerns have been raised and I want to know what those concerns are.”

There was “a lot of hard work to be done”, she said, but added that the UK was also making preparations in case no deal could be reached.

Mrs May reiterated that she would not accept the EU’s “backstop” plan to avoid a hard border in Northern Ireland, and said the UK would shortly be bringing forward its own proposals.

Theresa May has just tried to put a brave face on it.

Number 10 had not hoped for a breakthrough at this summit in Salzburg. But they were confident of getting a fair wind for the controversial compromise she agreed with her Cabinet in the heat of the summer.

Mrs May has just told a clammy, tiny room full of journalists: “I believe that there is willingness to do a deal but let nobody be in any doubt, that as I’ve always said, we are preparing for no deal.”

But the comments from President of the European Council Donald Tusk give a pretty bleak assessment of the UK’s plan.

Tusk: May’s Brexit plan won’t work

He and other EU leaders have expressed doubts before. But his bold comments only minutes after a private meeting with Mrs May that the plan “does not work”, are more stark, and more damaging than expected.

That’s because Donald Tusk has been seen as one of those brokers in the Brexit talks who has been trying to make things work, and trying to urge others who are more reluctant to do so, to show the UK a little flexibility.

Can the prime minister really cling on to her Chequers plan now?

The EU clearly won’t accept it as it stands.

Significant chunks of her party won’t wear the deal either.

The opposition parties won’t back her.

Of course there are tactics at play here. One government minister has already suggested that the EU always knows how to overplay their hand.

Sometimes in negotiations, there needs to be a crisis to focus minds.

And in her press conference, Theresa May seemed frustrated that her proposals perhaps have not been properly digested or considered yet.

Of course this is only one day, one set of fraught meetings, in a tangled and lengthy process.

But as things stand, it seems Theresa May is going to have to budge, or walk away.

How to Manage Your Android Device From Your PC

How to Manage Your Android Device From Your PC

Despite the ever-increasing sizes of mobile-device screens — many smartphones are now close to or even more than 5 inches — it’s still a pokey and fiddly affair to configure them — or even look at them, for that matter. Stabbing around those minuscule on-screen keyboards can be a tedious affair.

However, there are PC-based solutions out there that allow you to perform smartphone-related tasks amid the copious screen real estate and roomy keyboard of your PC instead.

Phone makers and wireless carriers can provide some primitive solutions — look for details in the device’s shipping box. Or, you can try out some more elaborate dedicated third-party solutions.

Two such solutions are free Mobogenie — for PC-based management of apps, media, texts, SD card backups and so on — and US$0.99 Krome, an Android app recently published by Damian Piwowarki that can push real-time notifications from your device running Android Ice Cream Sandwich or better onto your full-sized computer’s Chrome browser.

Here’s how to get started.

Mobogenie On-PC Syncing and Management

Step 1: Open your smartphone’s Settings menu and scroll to the Applications and then Development option, or simply the Developer Options menu item — depending on version of Android that you’re running. Check USB Debugging and close the Settings screen.

Step 2: Browse to the Mobogenie website and click on the Download for PC button. Then follow the prompts to install the software and allow the software to install and automatically launch.

Step 3: Click on the first icon, labeled “My Phone,” on the top ribbon.

Step 4: Connect a USB cord between PC and phone when prompted to. Then allow miscellaneous drivers and other files to update and install automatically. Follow any prompts to update drivers manually.

Tip: Mobogenie will automatically install a bridging app on your phone too.

Step 5: Monitor any on-PC-screen status messages, like “Drivers installed successfully.” Minimize any driver-related windows and look for the Mobogenie pop-up dialog box, which will advise you of the sync status.

Step 6: Maximize the Mobogenie interface on the PC and scroll through the dashboard to view and manage items like SMS text inbox, app updating and camera images.

Tip: Use Mobogenie to reduce data costs too by browsing for data-heavy apps from the Mobogenie software on the PC and then installing the app via USB cable rather than wireless network.

Krome On-PC Mobile Device Notifications

Step 1: Browse to the Google Play store using a desktop Web browser or your device’s Play app and purchase $0.99 Krome.

Allow the app to install on the device and follow the prompts to enable the app’s Accessibility Service.

Step 2: Press the Next button repeatedly on the device until the Krome Connect screen appears. There will be a pairing code displayed.

Step 3: Open Google’s Chrome browser on your PC and launch a new tab. Click on the tile labeled “Chrome Web Store” and perform a search for Krome. Select the Krome app and allow it to install, entering your Google User ID and password if prompted.

Step 4: Click on the Krome icon within the Chrome browser on the PC and enter the pairing code from the second step. The PC and device will pair.

Tip: Enter the pairing code without spaces.

Step 5: Watch the PC’s taskbar, and you’ll see a pop-up notification appear briefly when a notification-event occurs, like an incoming Gmail email or text on the mobile device.

Tip: Chrome doesn’t have to be maximized on the PC’s screen in order to get the notification.

Biometric ATM card….Fingerprint authentication moves from phones to payment cards.

biometric payment card

Payment cards are gaining new capabilities as Visa has launched a pilot of a new dual-interface (chip- and contactless-enabled) biometric payment card with Mountain America Credit Union and Bank of Cyprus… Strong security: Fingerprint biometric is stored only on the card to ensure that a cardholder’s data is protected.

The card will test the use of fingerprint recognition as an alternative to PIN or signature to authenticate the cardholder during a transaction. The pilot is being managed through the Visa Ready for Biometrics program, a new offering to support the growing demand for biometric technology in the payments category.

Here’s how it works. The cardholder enrolls the fingerprint, which is securely stored on the card. When he or she places the finger on the card’s sensor during a transaction, the card senses whether the scanned print is the same as the print stored in the card. A green or red light on the card indicates a successful or unsuccessful match.

Biometric payment cards offer several benefits beyond ease of use:

  • Strong security: Fingerprint biometric is stored only on the card to ensure that a cardholder’s data is protected.
  • Hardware Upgrades Unnecessary: The biometric card is designed to be compatible with existing payment terminals that accept contactless- or chip-based payments around the world.
  • Self-charging: The biometric sensor is powered by the payment terminal, ensuring there is no embedded battery or need to re-charge the card.

How to Repair Damaged Video Files or Corrupted Videos?

Repair Damaged Video Files

Want to repair damaged video files? Repairing damaged or corrupt videos is inevitable if you are a professional cinematographer or else an individual who has some important unplayable video files stored on your computer or data storage medium, such as memory card, hard drive, flash drive, etc.

How Video File Get Corrupted?

Now the question arises, why are you experiencing corruption in video files? The reason for corruption can be due to any unperceived problems that you might encounter during video shooting, the presence of the virus on your memory card, data communication issue while you try to transfer files to your PC, or others.

  • What happens when videos are corrupt?

To know the answer to this question, you need to understand the structure of a video file. You see, a video file is a sequence of bytes that has two parts: header and data part. The header part is the set of bytes allotted to store the metadata about the video such as file type, a start bit and end bit, offset, etc. While the data part stores the actual bits that represent the video.

When few bits of a header is changed then this file may not play in a video player. Besides, change in bits from the data part makes the video jittery, grainy, out of sync with audio, or distorted when played. In either case, the video file becomes corrupt.

Don’t worry, you can relive those lost memories and resolve all video troubles. Steps that you need to be followed to repair your corrupt video files are mentioned below:

How to Repair Damaged Video Files?

1. Download and install the Stellar Phoenix Video Repair software on your computer (it doesn’t matter whether the computer has the corrupt videos stored on its storage drive, as the tool repairs files and does not recover them when they are deleted; therefore, there is no fear of overwriting). [Note: To recover your lost data, you need a data recovery tool such as Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery.]

2. Launch the video repair software by double-clicking on the shortcut icon present on the desktop or use the Windows start button to open it.

3. Once the software is up and running, click on the Add File button located at the center of the wizard to add the video files for the repairing process.

[Use the Add file button present just above the bottom of the screen to add more files for repairing.]

 

4. In order to repair the added video files, click on the Repair button. The software repairs all the added files one at a time. The live status of the repair process is shown at the progress bar below. In case of need, you can, by all means, click the Stop button to end the unfinished repairing task.

 

5. Click the OK button when the repair process completed message box appears. To know the status of the repaired files, have a look at the Action column and see the links present beside each file. Click on the Preview link to preview the repaired files.

 

6. Click on the ‘Advanced Repair’ link (if it is present) to repair the corresponding severely corrupt video. All you need to do is to click the Next button and add a sample video, which is a playable video of any size and with the same format created using the same device.

[Note: Both the sample video and the corrupt video remains unharmed during the repair process; therefore, you do not need to create a copy of the corrupt or sample video file before feeding it the software’s repair engine.]

7. Click on the ‘Save Repaired Files’ button to save the fixed files on your computer.

[Don’t worry, you do not need to choose a different drive as it does not interfere with the current video files located on the drive (unlike the data recovery tool that makes it necessary to save repairable data in a different drive to avoid overwriting).]

 

There you go, you have repaired your damaged video files and even severely corrupt videos using its sample video file. The software does the video repairing task of multiple video file formats including .mov, .mp4, .f4v, .m4v, .3gp, and .3g2 simultaneously. The repair software is 100% safe and secure to download.
