Facebook Intros New Tools to Help Control Your Information

Published

on

Facebook announced today the launch of the Privacy Basics site, a new resource that makes it easier for people to find answers to the most common questions about privacy and learn how to control their personal information on Facebook. Privacy Basics puts the user in the driver’s seat with 32 interactive guides available in 44 languages, including Arabic.

It will offer more than 146 million people in the Middle East and North Africa tips for things like securing your account, understanding who can see your posts, and knowing what your profile looks like to others. This is part of Facebook’s overall effort to make sure users have all the information required to share what they want, with only the people they want to see it.

In addition to visiting Privacy Basics, Facebook is sharing three top tips on how to take charge of your information online and help ensure that your privacy is secure:

  1. Take the Privacy Checkup. You’ll walk through a few quick steps to make sure only the people you want to see your stuff can see it. You can review who you’re posting to, which apps you’re using, and the privacy of key pieces of information on your profile.
  2. Choose who sees what you post. On Facebook, you can use the audience selector to choose who will see each of your posts — just your friends, everyone, or specific people you select.
  3. Increase your account security by turning on login approvals. You’ll get a unique security code each time you access your Facebook account from a new device.

“As people share their most valued moments on Facebook, we want to make tips and tools clear and accessible whenever users need them,” said the company in a statement.

PUBG MOBILE Launches Version 2.0 Update

Published

on

PUBG MOBILE has officially released its new Version 2.0 Update, packed with new additions to PUBG MOBILE’s iconic maps, alongside new content from acclaimed anime EVANGELION  and more. Beginning on May 11th, Livik gets an explosive overhaul with an upgraded environmental redesign in its urban areas to showcase innovative new combat strategies. A new vehicle – the agile four-seater Utility Task Vehicle – has also been added to Livik and Aftermath, allowing players to quickly move back and forth across the map’s diverse landscape.

At the beginning of the match, a golden resource-rich area will spawn in a random urban area, allowing players to grab as many supplies as they can! Not to mention a great assemblage of mini-games and items, such as Random Crates, which can be tracked down with Treasure Maps, Blomster’s in-game Soccer Challenge, and a quick means of escape with the map’s new Zipline.

Airdrops come once a match in a designated area, while Recall Towers are dotted across Livik for players to revive their lost teammates. Lying beneath it all is Livik’s volcano, which may erupt at any given moment – hide from its wrath by dodging its explosions and sheltering in buildings! All this content and more lands in Livik today.

On May 19th, a new season comes to PUBG MOBILE! A new batch of Legendary rewards is available for Cycle 2 Season 6, including themed Glasses, Parachute, Mask, and much more. The tier system has also been adjusted, as more sub-tiers have been added within the Gold, Bronze, and Silver tiers.

With the new Royale Pass Month themes – Hidden Hunters for Month 11 – players can work their way up to rank 50 to pick between two rewards. They can also track the progress of their pass missions in matches through the mini-map and, with the Favorites Crate, select their preferred reward from any past season. A free Royale Pass Voucher will become available for next month’s Royale Pass – themed Toy World – and the chance to participate in the server-wide Golden Chicken event and bonus Royale Pass Point event.

PUBG MOBILE has today announced an upcoming partnership with the acclaimed anime title EVANGELION to bring the series’ fearsome Angels to PUBG MOBILE’s iconic maps in a special event coming soon. Stay tuned for more information! Other new additions to the PUBG MOBILE shop include new Mythic outfits from the Crystal Power Squad, including the Interstellar Chimera Set, Floret Fairy Set, Sacred Eminence Set, and Styx Sovereign Set, as well as a brand new character, Emilia the Materials Scientist, who can provide players with new equipment.

Also new to PUBG MOBILE are Wingman Finishes, obtainable through the Lucky Spin from May 17th to May 24th. Wingmen can accompany players through their game, flying around Spawn Island during the match, alongside the plane during the jump phase, and there to welcome players back to the lobby afterward.

A number of other improvements have been made to PUBG MOBILE, including visual improvements, UI upgrades, and much more. Security, in particular, has doubled down, with the intuitive new Eagle System and Fog of War Anti-Cheat System included to combat cheaters further.

Three Most Dangerous Types of Android Malware

Published

Written by Lukas Stefanko, Malware Researcher at ESET

These days, the device in your pocket can do far more than call or send text messages. Your smartphone stores almost every aspect of your life, from memories, captured as photos to personal notes and schedules, log-in details, and various other kinds of sensitive data.

Android-powered devices command more than 70 percent of the mobile operating system market. Add to that the open nature of the Android ecosystem and it’s clearer why these devices bear the brunt of malicious attacks on mobile devices and remain a lucrative target for attackers.

Google has, of course, introduced a number of privacy- and security-enhancing features for Android devices. Just a few days ago, the company announced that it had stopped 1.2 million policy-violating apps from reaching Google Play last year, among other measures aimed at cracking down on malicious apps.

However, this is not to say you should let your guard down when it comes to all sorts of dangers that lurk especially in third-party app stores.

Malware comes in various forms and works in various vicious ways. Watch the video to learn more about some of the most dangerous types of malware affecting Android devices, including:

  • Malicious software that can hold your device and data hostage, possibly “on behalf of the FBI”
  • Malware that steals login credentials and can in some cases bypass two-factor authentication
  • Android nasties that give hackers control over your entire device

Blizzard Announces Warcraft Arclight Rumble Mobile Game

Published

on

Back in February, Activision Blizzard revealed its long-running Warcraft franchise would be heading to mobile this year – and we now know exactly what form it’ll take thanks to the official reveal of the free-to-play “tower offence” game Warcraft Arclight Rumble for iOS and Android.

Arclight Rumble is being pitched as a combination of strategy game and tower defense, that sees players choosing from one of several leaders across five factions – Alliance, Horde, Beast, Blackrock, and Undead – each with their own abilities and specialisations.

Objectives vary depending on the chosen map (of which Blizzard is promising 70+ at launch), and these can range from skirmishes to boss battles. Players will need to deploy their units from their available “minis” – 60 collectible minis are being touted for release – and more powerful units can be deployed by gathering gold as a match plays out.

Arclight Rumble will feature player guilds, PvE, PvP, co-op, raids, and dungeons, with Blizzard promising new dungeons every week. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the developer skipped over the subject of monetisation in its reveal presentation, which you can see above, but we should have a clearer idea of how things will play out come the arrival of Arclight Rumble’s closed beta, which is said to be heading to “limited regions” soon.

Warcraft Arclight Rumble’s unveiling follows a string of recent announcements from Activision Blizzard – including World of Warcraft’s new Dragonflight and Lich King Classic expansions – as the company continues its attempts to put the last ten months of disturbing allegations into its workplace culture behind it.
