Here's How to Download All the Data Apple Collects About You

Apple is making it easier for its users to download their data the company has collected about them so far.

On Wednesday, Apple just launched a new Data and Privacy website that allows you to download everything that the company knows about you, from Apple ID info, device info, App Store activity, AppleCare history, your online shopping habits to all of your data stored in its iCloud.

A similar feature was recently offered by Facebook, enabling its users to download all of their data, not only what they have posted, but also information like facial recognition and location data, following the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

Apple has currently made this feature only available for people having accounts in European Union (along with Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland), to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) act, which goes into effect on May 25.

However, Apple is planning to roll out this feature worldwide in the coming months. "We intend to pr…

How Apple, Facebook and Google are changing to comply with GDPR

Europe's new data regime has arrived. From May 25, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
is being enforced by regulators across the 28 countries. 
GDPR bolsters the protections of personal data of EU citizens and has had companies scrabbling to meet its requirements. There has been a deluge of pointless marketing emails and companies revamping their privacy policies ahead of the rules coming into force. 
All companies large and small, as well as other organisations such as public bodies and charities, are affected by GDPR. And for the very biggest firms, it's an especially crucial issue. Google, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Microsoft and Apple hold colossal amounts of information about billions of people around the world. Fall foul of GDPR and they risk being fined huge sums of money.
Each of the big five has taken a different approach to GDPR – with some radical variations between them. We've run down some of the bigger changes made by the companies and…

What is DuckDuckGo and how does it work ?

Increased state surveillance, countless security breaches and widespread concern about data sharing have spooked many of us into wanting to protect our privacy more than ever. 
Despite bubbling almost under the radar for nine years, anonymous search engine DuckDuckGo is now finding its stride in this current climate. In January, it announced it had passed ten billion searches, with four billion occurring in 2016. What is DuckDuckGo? DuckDuckGo describes itself as "the search engine that doesn't track you". It promises not to use cookies to follow users and says it doesn't collect any personal information on those who use it. Even your IP address is hidden. How is it different to Google and Bing?
When you click on links from Google and Bing, even in private mode, the search terms are sent to the site you're visiting in the HTTP referrer header. When you visit that site, your computer automatically shares information, such as your IP address. This info…

Facebook Testing a “Send in WhatsApp” Sharing Button

Doesn’t it happen too often that while scrolling through your Facebook feed, you come across a really funny meme or a video of kittens and want to instantly share it with your friends through WhatsApp? Of course, jumping between apps is a pain, and Facebook is looking to end this with a new dedicated button.

Right now you can only share pictures to other apps, while sharing posts and videos requires you to copy the link and send it manually. Even sharing pictures is a multi-step process, and this should get a lot easier with the “Send in WhatsApp”, as seen in a recently shared screenshot.

The button is analogous to the “Send in Messenger”button which is used to share posts directly with friends through the Facebook Messenger app. However, it is not clear whether this feature has already arrived for certain users or was tipped to be coming soon by Mazumdar.

We were unable to spot the feature on both Android and iOS apps including the latest beta version of Facebook on Androi…

Even because of the thin thickness, you can not expect a notebook aimed at more demanding gamers: the GPU is a GeForce GTX 1050 with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory. But the rest of the hardware includes 8 or 16 GB of 2400MHz DDR4 RAM and PCIe (NVMe) SSDs with up to 1TB of capacity. Th…

OnePlus 6 Launched in India, Priced Starting Rs. 34,999

Following last night’s launch event in London, OnePlus has now unveiled its latest flagship, the OnePlus 6 (starts at Rs. 34,999), at an event in Mumbai, India. If you’re wondering why OnePlus chose to hold a second launch event in the country, it’s because India is the biggest and the most important market for the company.

OnePlus is already one of the top three premium smartphone brands in India, capturing 25% of the market share in the premium price segment. The country has also played a critical role in helping OnePlus establish partnerships with brands such as Amazon and the company’s community in India has played a major role in providing feedback to help it improve the product experience.

iPhone Users Beware! The ‘Black Dot of Death’ Is Out To Get You Do you remember the WhatsApp message that could block the application and affect Android devices? Well, according to several reports there is now a circular message that has the ability to block the iOS messaging app.

How to use Gmail's Offline mode

Google announced a suite of new features for Gmail at I/O 2018 and amidst all the major changes coming to the mail platform, the company has also silently begun to roll out a new offline mode for desktop users.

The new mode will replace the Gmail Offline Chrome app and will now work natively inside the chrome browser.

Rumours of iPhone SE 2 with notch design and face ID emerge again

We have been hearing about an upgrade to the last compact phone made by Apple, the iPhone SE. Today we have yet another launch speculation that suggests Apple will unveil the iPhone SE 2 that will be launched in the late half of 2018.

This means that Apple could launch it alongside the next update of the iPhone X. The report comes from Macotakara, a supply-chain news site, which suggests that the iPhone SE 2 will not launch before September this year. The source also suggests that the mass production of the iPhone SE 2 hasn’t begun as of yet.

This contradicts a report which said that a number of regulatory filings happened, which generally come a month ahead of the product release. This suggested that the iPhone SE 2 would be released in May, or by early June this year.

The original iPhone SE was announced in March 2016, and was released as an update to the iPhone 5S. It retained the four-inch screen size and a similar metal finish as the 5S. It did however come with simil…
