11 Things Need To Be Delete From Your Facebook Right Away

People should be wise not to believe the huge spectacle that has been arranged by the media and government these days. A hearing which is taking place to create an illusion that government might solve the issue created by Facebook and they might hold the company accountable for data collection and abuse of public privacy. The truth is that when something starts receiving 24-hour coverage in the mainstream media news cycle, a solution is not always in sight. There is surely a reason that Facebook is getting so much attention on its data collection policies.

No matter what games are being played at the government and agencies level, you should make sure that you delete the following things from your Facebook to protect your privacy.

Delete The People You Don’t Know

Delete everyone who you added just to get some extra likes on your posts. Only keep the people on your list you consider reliable and trustworthy.

Your Birthday

Displaying information such as birthdays can make it easier for people to steal your identity. It’s okay to not get many birthday wishes as long as your identity is safe.

Children Photographs

Why do parents even post photographs of their children online is something which is ununderstandable. Agencies like CPS look for any kind of excuse to steal kids from parents. But still, parents keep posting the pictures.

Your Phone Number

Your address can be discovered by using your phone number and some right tools. If your data can be unlocked using your phone number, a lot of other data can also be unlocked about you and nobody needs to know that.

Which School Your Child Goes To

Child predators are not a joke at all. A report given by NSPCC found out that sexual offenses are rising with time. The report states, “Police recorded 36,429 sexual offenses against children in the UK in 2013/2014… in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland police recorded the highest number of sexual offenses against children in the past decade.”

Location Services

If you are disclosing your location on Facebook and not expecting any consequences then are you a fool or are you a fool?

Your Manager

What’s the point of adding your boss on your Facebook anyway? Don’t add them unless your boss also considers you as an equal.

Your Vacation Information

According to This Is Money, many travelers were robbed of their possessions while they were on vacation. This happened because they were publicly posting about their plans to vacation. This way they also risked their insurance claims denied.

Your Relationship Status

As long as you keep it hidden from social media, chances of you staying happy are more. In other case, chances of they getting targetted because someone wants to hurt you are more.

Your Bank Information

If you are receiving money through Facebook, make sure you delete the debit card information from your account later on.

Your Travel Ticket

Don’t post your ticket or traveling passes information on Facebook. Predators are always looking for preys out there.

Here is a video which can teach you how to delete all of your posts from Facebook which can make you vulnerable in any way.

5 Reasons Your Smartphone Battery Will Always Getting Low Within A Few Hour's

Most peoples all over the world are encountered this problems or smartphone battery.

Since smartphone batteries have been reinforced over the years to last longer with lithium batteries. Notwithstanding, there are kinds of  phones whose batteries drain within a few minutes which is very bad. A d mind you, there may be nothing wrong with the battery. But the question is why is the battery not lasting longer than usual?

According to Jumia Travel we learnt five possible reasons while your phones battery not lasting than usual.


One way that your phones runs out of battery is when your screen is too bright. The brightness will affect not only the battery but also your eyes. My advice for you is to set your phone to automatically adjust mode to the lighting of the ambiance. You can as well reduce the time it takes for your phone to go off whenever you stop using it.

This occur when you're using tour phone WiFi at a functioning time. So after finishing of whatever you're doing , you forgotten to switch it off.

Since you forgotten to switch it off, it keeps searching and alerting you whenever WiFi is available. With this, your battery will run out pretty fast.


Why won’t your phone battery quickly drain when your phone keeps alerting you of many social media like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and some others notifications? If you're in this category, then you don’t need to complain. You check your browser for notifications rather than using the apps. You can also turn off notifications, very bad.

Always checking your background apps, so that you can know the particular apps that quick drained your battery so that you can kill then. When you failed to check your background apps, how can you know why your battery drain than usual.

Your phone may alert about the apps consuming the most battery. But sometimes you have to disable these apps yourself by refreshing or cleaning your phone.

This happened when  you have tried all of the aforementioned reasons highlighted  above and your battery still runs out very fast, then you should consider replacing the battery because it may be bad or damaged.

Hope this article helpful, what's do you have to say concerning this post, we are highly look forward to hear from you by your comment

How To Root Samsung Galaxy S8

Download the SamPWND_S8_4File_Firm, the, and the

Download Odin Prince Comsy and Normal Odin

Extract SamPWND_S8_Firm to your desired destination (desktop works), then open Odin Prince Comsy, and place the files in their respective slot (BL –> BL, AP –> AP, CP–> CP, CSC–> CSC)

In Odin, go to options and select, Auto Reboot, Re-Partition, F. Reset Time, Nand Erase All, and Phone Bootloader Update (This will wipe the device)

Put Samsung Galaxy S8 into Download mode (Power + Volume Down + Bixby) A warning screen will come up warning you about flashing a custom os, to continue press Volume Up.

Press Start in Odin (Flashing will begin, this can take up to 10 min)

When complete device will reboot into recovery mode, at this point just select reboot system now.

Complete the Setup, and accept device RSA Keys, to authorize adb (if popup is not there already, or you have dismissed it; please disconnect and reconnect phone, then accept)

Now take the dowloaded in step one, and extract it to your adb install directory (usually C:adb)

Navigate to adb directory and CTRL + Shift + Right Click, select open cmd window here

Once you have cmd open and the extracted systemroot folder in your adb directory, we can begin.

Type: adb push systemroot /data/local/tmp/systemroot

When that completes type: adb shell

Once in the shell type: chmod -R 0777 /data/local/tmp

This next one is tricky, type: setsid su (the output will look like this: dreamqltesq:/ $ /system/bin/sh: No controlling tty: open /dev/tty: No such device or address
/system/bin/sh: warning: won’t have full job control), you will then be in a very unstable root shell

In order for this shell to become stable you must type exit, it will then drop you into a stable root shell, however this will probably take a few tries as most commands sent to the unstable shell are returned as gibberish. The shell itself will continue to change from standard user to root user, upon a press of the enter key. This will continue until exit is successfully ran and you are dropped into the stable shell (Note: Since the shell is changing from user to root after each command the exit command must be executed will the shell is root, otherwise instead of dropping to a root shell, you will drop to a user shell and have to begin with setsid su again)

Once a stable root shell is achieved you will type: echo /data/local/tmp/systemroot/ > /sys/kernel/uevent_helper (this will remount system and rootfs as r/w)

Wait 10 sec and type: mount (confirm that system is mounted as r/w)

Now we will execute the script, type: sh /data/local/tmp/systemroot/ (there will be some errors displayed back to you in adb, don’t worry about them everything is going accordingly)

When the script is done running your device will reboot, and at this point you are done. However, although root has been achieved it is not the smoothest/most stable, but we have a remedy for that as well!

Part Two

With your device still connected to the computer** Take the downloaded from step one, and either put it on your device’s internal storage or sdcard

Take your stock firmware of choice, and extract it to your desktop. From this you will take the system.img.ext4 and either put it on your device’s inter storage or sdcard

Download flashfire from the Play Store

Open flashfire and grant root permissions (this must be done with airplane mode enabled), exit flashfire

Open SuperSU, go to settings, scroll to the bottom, and enable pro features. Reopen SuperSU, select flashfire, and force user ROOT

Open flashfire again, and select flash firmware package (choose system.img.ext4)

Select flash ZIP or OTA (choose Under options for the zip make sure to select mount /system read/write!!

Select wipe and make sure the top 3 options are selected, press the check in the right hand corner

This next step is very important! There is a specific order that these are supposed to be in, from top to bottom: WIPE –> Flash Firmware Package –> Flash ZIP or OTA. If your order is not this, hold down on wipe like it is an appand drag it to the top of the list. Make sure it is in that order before pressing the flash button!

Select EverRoot from main screen and under options disable inject SuperSU

Press the lightning bolt to begin flashing, and wait for your device to reboot

Congratulations you now have a very smooth/fast/stable stock rom, with root. Enjoy!!

How to Get Android P Boot Animation on any Android Device

If you are reading this article, then you are sure interested to know how to get Android P boot animation on any Android phone or tablet. The developer preview version of Android P is exclusively released for Google Pixel owners, but the final name has not been decided yet. As like the previous releases, the P will be released in the month of September or October.

With the Android P Developer Preview now available, we’ve got a lot better idea about what to expect. Released in early March, the Android 9 Preview is available only to the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. You can download the Android P image file and flash it to your device or operate Android P in an emulator.

Get Android P Boot Animation on any Android

A boot animation is the loading animation that is played whenever your device starts up. Choose from hundreds of custom loading animations to install to your rooted device. Root access is required, and your device must be compatible to install custom boot animation. Don’t forget to check out the tutorial on how to transfer files from PC to Android using ES File Explorer.

As I said before, you can’t try the developer preview of Android P on any android device. But, you can enjoy the boot animation easily. But, there are few requirements to do that.

1. Required Root Access
2. Root Browser (ex. ES File Explorer)
3. Android P Boot Animation File (Download Here)

If your Android device is not rooted, then you can’t change the system files. If you are a customization lover, then I am sure your device is rooted. I have the Pixel XL, but it’s not rooted. That’s why I tested it on the Sony Z2.

Download and Install Android P Boot Animation

The above download link contains three folders according to your phone’s screen resolution. In every folder, there are two files; one for white background and another one for black. In my opinion, the black version looks better. Once you download the desired file, follow the below steps.

1. In your Android device, open ES File Explorer and swipe the left menu.

2. After that, navigate to Local → Device → System → media.

3. Here, you’ll get a file named Just rename the file to for the safety.

4. Now, copy the downloaded file to this directory.

Some users say you have to change the file permission to 0644 that is rrwr. But, in my test, I found it is not necessary to enjoy the boot animation without changing the permission.

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial on how to get Android P boot animation on any Android device. Any time you want to switch back to the default animation, just delete the file and rename back to the backup file to the previous one.

How often do you factory reset your phone? (results)

We asked you yesterday whether you hard reset your phones at all, given that some deep issues with them, as well as the inevitable slowdown over time, can only be solved this way, yet it requires some backup kung-fu on your part to save all the info and app settings you currently have. It turns out that, despite all these differences, factory resetting is still a popular way to solve performance problems for nearly 45% out of our 2381 respondents. A third only do a factory reset before they sell their phones, as the surefire way to clean it from all personal info, while 22% never bother, as their oldies are probably sitting in a drawer at home somewhere.

Let's face it, phones gum up, just as computers do. Rogue apps linger in the background, sucking up resources, flash memory gets bogged down, botched software updates leave that unpleasant feeling that something isn't working right, and this is valid for even the top-shelf handsets you can spend near a grand to buy. So, how often do you do a factory reset of your phone?

No, we aren't talking restarts here, which big software version updates do for you anyway, but actually resetting your device, and starting with it as a newborn child, curiously looking around and exploring the world. Granted, it does warrant some total backup before you do it, but it can potentially get rid of the lot of problems plaguing your handset, and is sometimes even the only option when things go terribly wrong.

Your Android phone is the only device which has an active Internet connection and you want to share Android Internet with PC, then you should read this article. Nearly, every Android smartphone has the ability to share the cellular data connections and turn itself into an Internet hotspot.

To increase the Internet speed you always use faster data connections like 3G/4G in your smartphone. A faster connection helps you to browse the websites quickly, watch videos in HD quality and also save your time.

If you have an Android mobile and want to share the data with your computer you must have to download the PC suite or buy a Data card to use the SIM. But, exchanging your SIM card in between the Mobile and the Data card is a headache. By using two SIM cards, one for Android device and another for the data card would increase your Internet cost. It would be better to use the mobile Internet in both these devices. To overcome from the SIM changing task, mobile tethering service is given in every Android handset.

How to Share Android Internet with PC

A private way to share your Android’s cellular connection is called tether. Tethering is used to connect one device to another for sharing Internet connection or treat like a modem. This operation is carried out by connecting the device to another device, such as a laptop computer, via its USB cable.

2. Share Android Internet with PC via Bluetooth

Bluetooth is an old technique, which generally used to transfer multimedia files among two Bluetooth enabled devices. The Android devices include support for the Bluetooth network pack, which enables a device to wirelessly exchange data with other Bluetooth devices. You can’t use Bluetooth tethering to share mobile data with other mobile. You can only share the Internet connection of a Android smartphone with a Laptop or computer having Bluetooth connectivity.

How to Activate Call Waiting in Android Phone

In this guide, I am going to explain the different ways on how to activate call waiting in Android phone. In any phone, you can only attempt one person’s call at a time. At that time, anyone can call you, but you won’t know about the person and the caller will listen to a busy beep. That’s why call waiting facility is present in every phone. Call waiting acts as an important option that allows the user to get a notification on incoming calls when taking a call. At the same time, on the other side, the caller will receive a waiting voice rather than the typical busy tone.

This way you do not miss important calls and also have the liberty to have a call at the sensitive phase when you’re expecting significant calls. In a basic phone, you can easily find out call waiting option. However, today is the age of Android smartphones. A new user will inevitably face difficulties to enable call waiting function on their phone. There are three procedures to activate call waiting service. Let’s know.

Now, it’s your option to attend the call if it is the important caller or dismiss it till the access to the time at the end of the present call.

Android has many versions. But, you can apply these tricks to activate call waiting in Android KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow and Nougat. I have tested these procedures in my Google Pixel as well as other phones with lower Android version. Well, without wasting your time let’s learn the ways.

1. Enable Call Waiting on Any Phone using USSD Code

USSD or Unstructured Supplementary Service Data is a protocol used by GSM cellular telephones to communicate with the service provider’s computers. This is the easiest way to enable call waiting service on your Android device as well as other basic phones.

People generally use USSD codes to check their mobile balance or service status. Follow the below procedure to activate, deactivate and check the status of phone waiting service.

*43# : Enable Call Waiting

#43# : Disable Call Waiting

*#43# : Check Call Waiting Status

You can directly dial and these codes to enable or disable call waiting facility on your Android smartphone.

2. By Using Your Phone’s Dialer App

Phone Dialer or Call Dialer is a system app which is used to dial phone numbers on your smartphone. You can use this app to make phone calls as well as activate additional settings on your device.

1) First of all, go to your phone’s dialer. Once inside tap on the three vertical dots in the action bar on the top right of your screen and select Settings.

2) After that, tap on Calls option.

3) Here, you’ll get Additional settings option; tap on it.

3) Now check the Call waiting option to enable it.

If you want to turn call waiting off at any time, simply uncheck the box. The steps may vary in different versions. But, every version has a call dialer app and you’ll get the call waiting option within this app’s Settings.

3. Enable Call Waiting Using Call Waiting Enabler App

Call Waiting Enabler is a free and tiny app, which can be able to activate call waiting service on your mobile easily. Check the “Activate Call Waiting ” option and tap on “Apply setting” to enable the service. You can easily turn it off by simply uncheck the box. This is applicable for those, who need to enable or disable waiting service regularly. Remember one thing that, it won’t enable call waiting in cases operator doesn’t support it or has prohibited this feature.
