Banks are killing the password, and they can thank the iPhone for that

Banks are killing the password, and they can thank the iPhone for that

Many distinct entities are looking to kill the password, or replace it with better, more secure ways of logging into several online services. Banks are among them, and it’s easy to understand why. They want to protect their money. In light of the many security breaches that have put at risk the identities and online assets of millions of users, banks are encouraging customers to sign up for in-app biometric authentication methods. Scanning a fingerprint, the eye, or recording voice is a lot easier, and more secure, than logging into online banking services using credentials that hackers can steal or social engineer. And the iPhone is a big reason why banks are looking to kill the password. More →

How to get paid every week just for using one Google app

Next time you’re waiting on a painfully long line at Starbucks or doing anything where you have some time to kill, there’s a much better way to occupy your time than playing Candy Crush or looking at 700 photos of your friend’s newborn on Facebook. How about spending a few minutes using a great little Google app instead? You’re undoubtedly familiar with many Google apps, but you might not know that there’s one application in particular that Google will actually pay you to use, and that money can then be spent to buy other apps, games, movies, music, books or anything else available in the Google Play store.

The only browser to use if you want your laptop battery to last as long as possible

Modern laptops have now arrived at a point where pretty much anything you purchase is going to offer enough power to handle web browsing, media streaming and basic work without any problems — unless it’s really a budget machine. Modern processors and graphics chips are nice and powerful, and most software from big-name developers is pretty well-optimized. With that in mind, battery life becomes an increasingly important piece of the puzzle when people are choosing a new laptop. What you might not realize, however, is that battery performance is about much more than just hardware. More →

iOS 10 Kernel Encryption

Critical iOS 10 component isn’t encrypted, but it’s a feature not a glaring oversight

Critical iOS 10 component isn’t encrypted, but it’s a feature not a glaring oversight

Apple last week released the first beta of iOS 10 after explaining the main features of the upcoming iPhone, iPad and iPod touch update during its WWDC 2016 opening keynote. As expected, developers and researchers started poking around and some of them discovered that Apple left the kernel unencrypted. To some, this appeared to be an unexpected mistake from a company that’s known to prioritize user security and privacy, and to advocate for strong encryption. However, other researchers suspected this might be a feature, not a bug.

Apple has now confirmed the kernel is supposed to be decrypted in iOS 10.

This is when your Nexus device will stop getting the latest Android updates

If all you care about is running Google’s latest version of Android the minute it’s officially launched, then there’s only one type of smartphone for you: a Nexus. Even so, there’s a fine print you have to read when getting a new Nexus device. Regardless of how capable the hardware is, Google won’t support it forever, and there will come a time when you won’t be able to run Google’s latest and best Android release on your Nexus handset.

If you’re considering the purchase of a new Nexus handset – the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P are Google’s most recent smartphones – you should totally check out Google’s new cheat sheet that tells you when Nexus devices will stop getting updated.

Game of Thrones Spoilers

This website automatically texts ‘Game of Thrones’ spoilers to your worst enemy

This website automatically texts ‘Game of Thrones’ spoilers to your worst enemy

I don’t know that I hate anyone enough to continually text them Game of Thrones spoilers from an anonymous number. But luckily, if I did, there’s an app for that.

As The Next Web spotted, for a simple one-off payment of $0.99, Spoiled.io will spam a phone number of your choice with Game of Thrones spoilers. The texts (which also appear to contain photos) are sent in real time, so even if your target is watching on a slightly laggy free stream, they’ll have their evening of entertainment thoroughly ruined.

74% of Netflix subscribers would ditch the service over ads
