Apple’s latest iOS beta makes it easier to unlock an iPhone while wearing a face mask | The Verge

Instead of constantly attempting to identify your face using Face ID, a process that will not work while wearing a cloth or respiratory face mask to protect against COVID-19, iOS will now pull up the manual passcode option after one swipe up from the bottom of the screen. The change — which should eventually arrive in the standard, non-beta iOS release — will be a welcome one for any iPhone user who no longer has a model with a physical home button.

Google, Apple reveal more details on huge contact tracing initiative | Android Authority

On Friday, April 10, news broke that Google and Apple would team up to provide contact tracing solutions for both Android and iOS operating systems to help in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Limited details were announced initially, though a simplified overview of the system was released to help shed some light on just how these tech giants would build this system into Android and iOS.

Now, Google and Apple have slightly pulled back the curtain on how this system will be implemented and what precautions they’re taking to ensure user data remains safe.
They could have made all this clear up front rather than relying on tech journalists to make the details clear.

How to set up Face ID with a mask on iOS | Addictive Tips

Face masks have become common over the course of a month and they’re here to stay. In order for them to be effective, it is advised that you do not touch the mask frequently, especially the outside of it. What all this means is that you won’t be able to use Face ID. It won’t recognize a face that is covered half-way by a mask. You have to remove it for the scan to work. Turns out, you can actually train Face ID to work with a mask. Here’s how to set up Face ID with a mask.

Apple and Google are launching a joint COVID-19 tracing tool for iOS and Android | TechCrunch

Apple and Google’s engineering teams have banded together to create a decentralized contact tracing tool that will help individuals determine whether they have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.

Contact tracing is a useful tool that helps public health authorities track the spread of the disease and inform the potentially exposed so that they can get tested. It does this by identifying and “following up with” people who have come into contact with a COVID-19-affected person.

Apple confirmed iOS 13.4 will be landing on Tuesday, March 24, and it's set to be a fairly big update to your iPhone. Your iPad will also get an update to iPadOS 13.4, if it's compatible.
Many users have reported the Personal Hotspot feature is temperamental in the iOS 13 update, with it disconnecting regularly. An easy fix is to turn the feature off and on again, but that doesn't solve the problem for good.
I've seen elsewhere that you can also expect an update to be available for WatchOS and TVOS as well.

How Facebook tracks you on Android (even if you don't have a Facebook account)


Hackernoon

(...) 1 Facebook is able to track you because Android developers of 3rd party apps (example: Indeed Job Search) implement Facebook’s Software Development Kit (SDK).
2 SDK is a collection of tools that eases the creation of software. By using Facebook SDK, developers can do advanced analytics without the need to code it from scratch. SDK is like a Swiss Army Knife. With it, you can start your job immediately instead of having to build your own scissors, knife, corkscrew etc.
3 This article is written based on the research conducted by Frederike Kaltheuner and Christopher Weatherhead. You can watch the full video here. The official study can be found here. (...)

According to Privacy International, research done by the University of Oxford has suggested that approximately 42.55% of the free apps in the Google Play Store could share data with Facebook. (...)

Out of the 42.55%, this study picked 34 apps, based on the fact that they have either a huge number of installations, or they involve sensitive information such as religion and health, or they are simply utility apps (You know, torchlight, QR code scanner, fart sound etc). (...)

Out of the 34 apps, over 61% of them automatically transfer data to Facebook the moment a user opens the app. (...)

What’s our defense? (...)

1. Reset your advertising identifier (Very simple)
Every device has an advertising identifier (aka ad id). You can’t stop Facebook or Google from tracking you but you can make their tracking difficult by frequently resetting your ad id. If you reset it, in theory, Facebook and Google algorithms will view you as a different person in your next online activity.
Android Phone: Go to settings > Google > Ads > Reset advertising identifier
iPhone: Go to settings > Privacy > Advertising > Reset advertising identifier

2. Limit ad personalization (Very simple)
In theory, this should limit the amount of data collected by the companies. However, this study showed that we can end up sharing more data to companies if we limit ad personalization. But I will not go into the details of that.
Android: Go to Settings > Google > Ads > Opt Out of Personalized Advertising
iPhone: Go to settings > Privacy > Advertising > turn on ‘Limit Ad Tracking’

3. Review permissions (Very annoying)
Did you notice that apps these days have been asking for permissions before you carry out a simple task like importing a photo or opening a map? Yeah, it’s irritating but it’s crucial. This allows you to have greater control of your privacy. Not perfect, but at least it helps to a certain extent.

4. Use Brave browser to surf & use DuckDuckGo to search (Simple)
Brave (as opposed to Google Chrome) is a web browser which focuses a lot more on data privacy.
DuckDuckGo (as opposed to Google Search) is a search engine which distinguishes itself from other search engines by not profiling its users.

5. Educate yourself / your parents / your children on how the Internet works (Not so simple)
Education is the most powerful weapon. There are tons of articles and YouTube videos explaining how computers and network works; go read them up. However, if the content is too complex, especially for the older generations and the newcomers (aka your children), you can check out Potato Pirates -Enter The Spudnet. It’s a board game that’s developed to teach cybersecurity and internet piracy without computers. (...)

Apple releases fix for iOS 13's battery drain and Siri issues

Apple is still racing to fix iOS bugs days after the release of its latest iPhones. The tech giant has released an iOS 13.1.1 update (plus a corresponding iPadOS 13.1.1 version) that tackles a number of glaring problems. The most notable is a fix for a battery drain issue plaguing users across the board, but there's also a solution for Siri's problems recognizing requests on the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. This addresses issues with restoring your device from a backup, too, so you won't want to skip this if you're interested in safeguarding your data.

Other fixes tackle a security flaw with third-party keyboard apps, slow Reminders syncing and Safari suggestions turning back on despite your preferences. While this is technically a minor release, there are plenty of crucial fixes that make it a must-have.

The way this is made possible is pretty mind-blowing. Users mark their devices as lost and then other peoples' iPhones, iPads, and Macs effectively start looking for them via an encrypted Bluetooth signal. If a lost devices is spotted, its location is then sent back to Apple which in turn forwards it to the Apple ID that the device is registered with.
