Now you need to enter your Date of birth on Instagram too as Instagram launches age verification..

Instagram has finally rolled out age verification process to prevent underage people from joining the network. So, if you are creating a new user account in Instagram, then you need to enter date of birth and age from now on, the company said in its statement. As usual, the default age is set to 13 years.

If you re a existing Instagram user, you don't need to worry as of now, as you don't need to confirm your age now.

           "Your birthday will not be visible to others on Instagram, but you’ll be able to see it when viewing your own private account information"

This changes are now live for new account creators, the Officials quoted this step was taken to ensure the underage kids are safe on social networks, and they are continuously developing new features for better privacy and offer education based contents .

And as you guessed, this tech can be still bypassed by smart kids, as there are no verification happening in the background, but insider sources says, that the social network giant has formed a team to ban the accounts if they feel the user is underage based on various mechanisms, we hope it will flag now existing more than 1 million+ underage users.

Facebook crisis response tool is coming to WhatsApp

Facebook crisis response tool coming to WhatsApp

WhatsApp is getting the small version of Facebook's crisis response tool to help people who are stuck in crisis and disasters. WhatsApp, the company now owned by Facebook is getting lot of features that is directly linking to Facebook in the past 6 months is getting yet another feature making it as latest addition to the list. What this Facebook crisis response tool will basically do is, it will check whether you are safe during any disaster, if you hadn't responded then it will notify your family members and friends about this disaster. Fund raisers will also be notified about the disaster to provide extended support. 

                      Tech crunch reported that, this WhatsApp integration doesn't mean WhatsApp will also get all the features, instead it will have only limited set of feature to ask for help through WhatsApp as well instead of just using Facebook messenger. 

Though, Facebook was accused for collecting lot of data, we guess if they collect data only for this kind of good cause (Of course they would !) then its good to go with until it really violates users privacy. What do you think?

For example : If you are using files app, then that UI will now change to the UI like the one available in "This PC" or My computer, and with powershell being added to Kali. It will be pretty hard to detect for normal people.

Forget your twitter account by December 11, Says twitter if you Haven't signed in at least once in past 6 months..

Forget your twitter account by December 11, Says twitter if you Haven't signed in at least once in past 6 months..

Twitter is notifying all the users who haven't signed in for the past six months to prevent account being deleted. If you have twitter account and is inactive for past 6 months then your twitter account will likely to be deleted as per new twitter inactive policy. This move will come into effect by December 11, 2019.

What does this inactive mean ?

Inactive doesn't mean you hadn't posted into twitter or liked/ retweeted the tweet. It simply denotes  you haven't signed into your twitter profile. 

So, what i have to do now to prevent twitter account deletion?

You don't need to login and post a tweet to prove your account is active, all twitter wants is you to visit your profile on twitter site, accept the new terms and conditions and sign in if you haven't in the past 6 months that's it. If you have a twitter bot, then you don't need to worry twitter says as long as the bots are active. 

Twitter confirmed the news to verge, but never said whether the old fancy names will be available for new users or not.

We will update more info as soon as we have more info..

Update : Twitter clarifies that, this deadline might be extended till it finds a way to memorialize accounts of the deceased in some way and this inactive policy will be focusing mainly only on GDPR countries as of now in order to compliant with local policies.
