Opera's No log VPN is coming to Android..

After Opera's VPN powered PC browser became success, the company now announced its going to release its no log VPN powered browser for Android platform too.

What is VPN ?

If you don't know what that exactly is VPN feature is, don't worry! Relax.! VPN is nothing but Virtual Private Network, to say in simple words,i would say, this is the feature that will fake your IP address, its like browsing from some other another location while your location is different. For example: If you are based out in United states, and if you turn on the VPN Option Selecting Server based on United Kingdom, then the website that you are visiting will consider you are actually based on a different country, in our case United Kingdom and will provide content based on the location preference. This feature is used  for better privacy protection. Using this feature you can Skip "ISP's blocks (Accessing Website blocked on your country), and website tracking based on the location"
that's it, actually its a pretty much big concept, but the above one is what exactly it is :)

So, in additional to the existing browser features like ad-free browsing, Opera is adding this feature to its existing browser. But right now, since its currently under development phase, the company says, this feature will be rolled out to beta users first, and then it will be released on stable versions.

You can download the beta version of Opera at https://opr.as/app-d1f8f directly from Play store..

Facebook says, No ! Your News Feed Is Not Limited to Posts From 26 Friends !

Your Facebook News Feed will show you only posts from 25 or 26 friends, copy paste this and post on your wall to bypass the facebook's new algorithm and reach Maximum views that's the weird meme or i can even say Fake news that was circulating on Facebook right since it became famous.

The distribution of this fake news started rising again, So Facebook now officially confirms that its not limiting posts only from 25 to 26 people.

In a blog post, published on the site, Product Manager for Ranking (Ramya Sethuraman) of Facebook said, 

The idea that News Feed only shows you posts from a set number of friends is a myth.The goal of News Feed is to show you the posts that matter to you so that you have an enjoyable experience. If we somehow blocked you from seeing content from everyone but a small set of your friends, odds are you wouldn’t return.
You might also have questions like then why you are seeing posts from only particular set of people? Facebook have answer for that question too..

Facebook says,

That’s because the posts in your News Feed are ranked in the order they believe you’ll be most interested in seeing them. The algorithms prioritize posts that are predicted to spark conversations among people. for example, live videos will lead to more discussions than regular videos posts and the posts shared or commented by many people will make you to comment..

So, Next time when you heared or seen post that says, "News feed recently shows only posts from 25 people, copy and post on your timeline that you will never allow facebook to show posts from only 25 or 26 people", it will bypass their  new algorithm, remember that those are fakes and start acting.

Have a good day :)

“Error Encountered” when checking for Windows Updates in Windows 10 and Windows 7 [Solution that Might Work]

“Error Encountered, We couldn’t connect to the update service. We’ll try again later, or you can check now. If it still doesn’t work, make sure that you‘re connected to the Internet.” this might be the error message that you might encounter while you click/tap check for updates option in Windows Update. If you got the above error, then you are not the only one, as an article confirming on Microsoft site, says More number of people are affected of this issue..

So, Is this because of any changes you made to PC?

No, its because of   data corruption error from the Microsoft site, which was later rectified and clarified by Microsoft.

 Here is what Microsoft says..

The Windows Update service was impacted by a data corruption issue in an external DNS service provider global outage on January 29, 2019. The issue was resolved on the same day and Windows Update is now operating normally, but a few customers have continued to report issues connecting to the Windows Update service. We expect these issues will go away as downstream DNS servers are updated with the corrected Windows Update DNS entries.

As per the latest update, it seems the issue was fixed, but there are some people who still got the above error.

So, if you are the one, then follow the below steps..

1) First, download Windows 10 Update troubleshooter from Official site,
