How to tell if someone raises your personal information to Internet

Maybe you’re like me and thought that there is nothing to do if someone decides to raise your personal information to the Old West that is the Internet.

It turns out that since 2011, Google offers a tool to at least know when they get information from you online. And, depending on the type of information you can ask the Mountain View giant to remove pages of search results, albeit with some conditions.

First steps

Since May the European Court last he demanded Google to eliminate search results that appear information from people who want to be “forgotten” in cyberspace, this is an issue that has been in the news and in the minds of Many.

While this is in Europe and does not necessarily apply on this side of the pond, yes there are several steps you can take to find out what is published about you and how to remove sensitive and personal information of yours that appears in Google search results. It is important to stress that the fact that it appears in the results does not mean that Google is promoting it, or that the search it is published. It means that what appears in others published their results, which limits the type of actions that Google can take.

remove content

The first recommended by Google and it’s a little obvious is that you start managing what the company calls “your online reputation.”

Do a search for your name on Google. So yours know what kind of information exists on the Internet. Subsequently, the company suggests that you open a Google profile and there you include your information you want it to be public, because you can manage your taste – of course, only the information that is there.

Monitor your information on the Internet

Google makes a lot of emphasis on your profile can control your information, but it will be only that is linked with the profile or other Google services such as Picasa. If the information is elsewhere, that’s another story.

If you find your own information on a website and want to remove, Google suggests that in the first instance you contact the site administrator to request directly to remove that information. The company explains that this is important because although it “delete the site or image search results, the webpage still exists.” Therefore, Google says, “We believe that the best option is to contact the webmaster who can remove the page entirely.”

How to tell if someone raises your information …

But, on occasion, Google says it will eliminate the information of the results of their searches (eye, Google can not make disappear from the web page, but it does not appear in search results). Among the information that Google can help eliminate the searches is financial information such as bank accounts or credit card numbers or numbers issued by the government as your social security number.

However, Google warns that normally does not remove the date of birth, address or phone numbers of search results. (See here Removal Policies Google content for steps to follow, because there are many variables).

“Your presence on the Internet” is a Google feature that sends you a notification when your personal data appears on the web, as your email or phone number.

To create alerts, follow these steps recommended by Google

While none of these steps is guaranteed not appear and remain your personal information posted on a dark web page, it is a good way to have more control of your data on the Internet. Because when it comes to cybersecurity, it is better to be proactive.

Line adds encryption to all your applications

The instant messaging application Line added a new layer of security to ensure that no person other than the sender and receiver read messages sent through your application.

The Letter Sealing function ensures that the message is sent encrypted from point to point, that is, since it is sent until the receiver reads. Letter Sealing is a feature available for mobile applications and for Windows and Mac computers.

Line says his Letter Sealing tool converts the application in the first messaging platform with a level of security so advanced. Line claims that by storing the key in the user’s device is “technically impossible” that the message content can be read on a company server or a third party.

Sealing Safety Letter (technically known as E2EE by End-To-End encryption), shuffle the message in an alphabet soup that can only be ordered with a key that is stored on the user’s device.

For now, Letter Sealing applies only to individual conversations, but Line will soon expand coverage to group conversations. Also, Letter Sealing works only when the two devices involved in the conversation are active function. The function must be activated manually.

Letter Sealing is available in version 5.3.0 of iOS and Android Line onwards. The application for Windows and Mac, as well as the extension for some browsers, you must update to activate Letter Sealing.

Line has 205 million monthly users, according to the company said in July – still far from the 800 million WhatsApp.

Scientists investigate what life on a nearby planet Proxima Centauri

Proxima Centauri as was seen by the Hubble Space Telescope.

A team of astrophysicists is preparing to soon announce the discovery of an Earth-like around the nearest beyond the Sun, Proxima Centauri star planet, reported the German newspaper Der Spiegel, citing an unnamed source.

If true, this would be a great event, because it is the closest thing to the existence of another planet similar to ours and one that could be just four light years away.

Proxima Centauri is different from our Sun, however, and that means that any potential Earth-like planets still have some important differences compared to ours.

The key you must understand about Proxima Centauri is a red dwarf star closer in size to Jupiter than our own sun. This means that, in our eyes, visit a planet orbiting the star would be like entering a world that it appears in something like sepia tones or filter Instagram 1977.

Proxima Centauri is older than the sun for a few hundred million years, which means there has been plenty of time for chemistry results in life and that life itself is developed there, in theory.

However, on the project website Pale Red Dot, the author Paul Gilster wrote in January: “Like many M dwarfs-young stars, Proxima Centauri is prone to sudden and violent eruptions, producing sudden changes in brightness to observers on Earth and cascades of deadly particles for any form of life on a planet. ”

Now, this does not mean that life could not adapt and evolve to essentially have a level of natural sunscreen to survive the harsh Next flares, but it does mean we could finish a little toasted if wearing shorts and flip-flops visited.

Because Proxima is so relatively small and dim, any Earth-like planet circling around it probably would be orbiting very close, even closer than the orbit of our Sun of Mercury. This makes it likely that such a planet also be anchored on the same side, always facing Next, similar to the way the same side of the moon always faces Earth.

This fact alone would make Earth a future very different from our planet. One side of the planet would be permanently bathed in daylight, while the opposite side would always be dark and presumably quite cold. Some areas could experience perpetual darkness and perhaps a magnificent ocher red sunset that never ends.

The potential for life on a planet of this kind depends on what kind of atmosphere there. One study found (PDF) that a relatively thin atmosphere could be enough to create an environment where photosynthesis could take place. It is also possible to imagine a dead, dry planet like Mars, on the one hand, and as frozen as Pluto, on the other.

Fortunately, one of the biggest brains on Earth recently teamed up with some pretty rich guys to announce a plan to send a small spacecraft to Centauri system (which also includes two brightest stars, Alpha Centauri in a binary system). In April, Yuri Milner and Stephen Hawking (with the help of Mark Zuckerberg) announced its “Advance Starshot” to launch a “nanocraft” to travel to a fifth of the speed of light toward the Centauri. That’s a round trip of 20 years.

Soon we should have a better idea of ​​whether there really is a near Earth-like planet. In addition to the Pale Red Dot initiative, the Hubble space telescope and observatory Canadian MOST (acronym for micro-variability and oscillations of stars) have been investigating the vicinity of Proxima Centauri.

If there is something there, then the next step will be to try to determine the probability that it is populated by aliens with natural resistance to evil solar flares that have never witnessed a sunrise or sunset every day.

Huawei Honor 8: features. Huawei Honor 8: price and launch

Honor, a division of Huawei, brings for the first time to the US its flagship phone, Honor 8.

Honor 8 has a stylish design made of metal and glass that resembles a bit to what they have offered phones like the Samsung Galaxy S7, with different layers that allow light to be reflected in different ways when you move the device.

However, the Honor 8 tends to keep the finger marks on its cover.

In the back of Honor 8 are two cameras, but instead of being developed by Leica lens manufacturer as happened with Huawei P9, this time Huawei developed this technology.

In addition, the cell also brings a fingerprint reader that is located at the rear, similar to how it did in the Nexus 6P.

Honor 8 has an elegant glass design with metal frame and dual rear camera.

Honor Marshmallow 8 runs Android with custom interface Huawei, which means it does not have a drawer apps as generally find in most Android phones. However, this drawer can be obtained by installing a launcher.

Also, Honor said cell receive the update to Android 7.0 Nougat, but would not confirm if this will happen this year.

Moreover, the Honor 8 has a 5.2 inch screen with a Full HD resolution provides enough detail and good colors.

In addition, cell 950 brings a processor HISILICON Kirin (similar to 955 Huawei Kirin P9) eight core with a maximum speed of 2.3GHz, which is manufactured by the same Huawei. This is not very common to see in the market because the company often decides to change its processor to integrate a processor from Qualcomm US

The two rear chambers of Honor 8 are 12-megapixel camera and one camera is a monochrome (black and white) and other is color.

Although the two cameras offer different features that are coupled to provide the best picture quality, it is possible to have covered the lens of the monochrome camera to take pictures with the lens color – although this would not offer the best quality you can offer cellular.

The rear cameras have an aperture of f / 2.2, while the front 8-megapixel camera has an aperture of f / 2.4.

Despite being a small cell (7.45mm), Honor 8 integrates a 3,000mAh battery, the same capacity using Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and its flagship phone HTC HTC 10.

Unlike 5X Honor, one of our cell favorite for its low price and good experience, Honor 8 brings NFC for mobile payments using Pay Android.

Also, the Honor 8 has 4GB of RAM, microSD card slot, USB-C (USB type C) with fast charging port and infrared emitter to control TVs.

Huawei integrates more functions in the fingerprint reader Honor 8 what he did in the Nexus 6P.

In addition to allowing unlock the phone or enter some apps with your fingerprint, the reader also integrates a button that allows you to open apps or different functions when you press once, twice or holding down (three different functions).

Also, you can use your knuckle to draw on the screen the letter “C”, “E”, “M” and “W” to open other functions, such as camera to “C”, “E” for Chrome, “M” for music and “W” for the climate.

Also, you can give two shots straight at the screen with your knuckle to take a screen shot or two shots in a row with two knuckles to start recording the screen.

Such functions are not entirely new, because gestures on the screen (with lyrics) have integrated the cell as the OnePlus 3, while taps with his knuckles we have seen in phones like the Huawei Mate 8.

Honor 8 has two rear 12-megapixel cameras.

Honor 8 will be a presale from August 17 in US US $ 399.99 for the 32GB version storage and US $ 449.99 for the 64GB storage version, as unlocked cell.

Honor 8 will be available through Amazon, Best Buy, B & H Photo Video, Newegg and website of the company

Huawei Honor will sell 8 in white, black and blue, but during the first 60 days of its launch Best Buy will have exclusive blue.

In addition, Huawei offers a gift card (gift card) $ 50 to users who purchase the pre Honor 8 on its website

Honor 8 looks like a really attractive cell and with great potential.

The design is very elegant, your fingerprint reader is fast, the camera seems to be good enough to please most users and the processor provides a good experience, at least in the short time that we could try.

However, the market in which enters the Honor 8 is not easy, since cell as the OnePlus 3 and the ZTE Axon 7 provide specifications and high-end features for the same price and are a bit more established than the brand Honor .
