WhatsApp Beta Feature – Soon WhatsApp Will allow Same account on Multiple Devices

WhatsApp-Beta-Feature-Soon-WhatsApp-Will-allow-Your-Same-account-on-Multiple-Devices

WhatsApp Multiple Devices; One whatsapp account on multiple devices

WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new feature that would allow users to install and use the service on multiple platforms simultaneously.

According to WhatsApp tipster WABetaInfo, the messaging service is developing a multi-platform system that would work on iOS and Android and includes WhatsApp for Windows (UWP).

WhatsApp Web at the moment only supports a chat interface and it does not include the voice or video call feature. However, with the introduction of a new multi-platform feature, the Web portal will offer much more feature. Not much is known about this new interface the messaging giant is working on, so we are not sure what it will look like, but the functionalities will definitely be better.

The new feature will support multiple platforms including Windows, Android, and iOS. It is also unknown that this feature will support macOS or not. Also, it’s unclear if WhatsApp with the addition of this feature will keep its Web portal or replace it. This means that users can install the app on multiple platforms and use the service at the same time without getting booted from the main account – very similar to the way you use services like Facebook or Twitter.

WABetaInfo also claims that users will be able to use WhatsApp on iPad when the app makes its way to the public soon.

It also states that the new feature will possibly bring stronger “end-to-end encryption because probably something needs to be changed, seen that the messages must be sent to more devices”.

Conclusion:

Some very useful features are already available in the beta versions of WhatsApp and should be making their way to the stable channel pretty soon. Meanwhile, we’ll keep an eye out for future updates and new features added by WhatsApp and keep you posted, so check back often Techelucid for more updates.

FaceApp – Reasons to think twice about using FaceApp

FaceApp – Reasons to think twice about using FaceApp
FaceApp – Reasons to think twice about using FaceApp

What is FaceApp ; Features of FacApp

FaceApp was developed a couple of years ago by Wireless Lab, whose headquarters are in St. Petersburg, Russia. In simple words you can change photos of yourself so you appear older or younger, or “swap” genders. FaceApp uses photos from your phone to show what an older or younger version of yourself could look like. The app has gone viral in recent days and It’s currently one of the most downloaded apps for both iOS and Android, as #faceappchallenge posts have taken over Facebook and Instagram.

FaceApp is not new. It first hit the headlines in 2017 with its “ethnicity filters”. These purported to transform faces of one ethnicity into another – a feature that sparked a backlash and was quickly dropped. FaceApp has been controversial in the past, back in 2017 when its two features were removed in response to criticism for highlighting physical racism. The president of the company, Yaroslav Goncharov, apologized in April of that year after one of his filters, called “hot” , clearing the skin but according to Wireless Lab the “hot” filter there was an “unfortunate side effect of the underlying neural network “. The “neural network” to which he referred is the set of artificial intelligence algorithms “to modify a face in any photo while remaining photo realistic ” explained Goncharov at the time. However it wasn’t a technical glitch because in past when Google photos was in initial stages it used to mix up objects There was an other filter that allowed users to change race , to look like Afro-descendant, Indian, Asian or Caucasian, was erased a day after being launched before the wave of criticism received from all over the word.

Security Concerns

The app is developed by a small team from Saint Petersburg, who claim to have built the tech in-house using some open source AI tech. Of course, counter to what many alarmist tweets might have you think, being Russian doesn’t automatically make it a spy app. But it’s something to keep in mind given the difference in regulatory checks and balances between countries. But the question is still there whether FaceApp is doing enough to protect users’ data. Some researchers have already questioned the app’ security risks related to FaceApp, which has been out for years, suddenly went viral all over again seemingly overnight. Others have pointed to the fact that the app requires a data connection, suggesting that might be indicate the app is surreptitiously grabbing users’ photos. Experts in computer security warning that for a user it is very difficult to know if facial recognition is being used in applications and for what purposes.

David Shipley with Beauceron Security said that while the product may be advertised as ‘free’, it’s your information that’s the real price. He noted that even a picture of your face can do plenty of damage. “It can be used to identify you and unlock things like your smartphone or other things and you want to make sure you protect your identity.”

And, in some corners of Twitter, people have pointed to the app’s Russian origins — FaceApp is owned by a company, Wireless Lab, that’s based in St. Petersburg — as a sign of something nefarious. Issues like this can pose serious problems in the future and People are rightfully wary of the numerous ways their data could be accessed or exposed by an app developer.

In recent months, FaceApp has likely a fun feature you’ve probably seen on your social media feeds, letting you and your friends morph faces to look older, younger, or smiling when you frown. You can even see what you’d look like if you presented as another gender (with this last feature often proving a little problematic in and of itself). And a brand-new feature from the app has landed the company in even more hot water online.

The app just added ethnicity filters, which morphs your face into what the app deems Asian, black, Caucasian, and Indian ethnicity. Yes, this involves lightening or darkening your skin, plus altering your facial features and hair texture to fit ethnic stereotypes. Here are a few shots of the filters in action

 

Privacy Policy of FaceApp

If you’re only using pictures that you already have online as Facebook profile pics or Instagram selfies, probably not. It’s possible FaceApp could use your images in conjunction with other data it collects to profile you, as many companies on the internet do, but there’s no indication the threat of misuse is any higher here. You should always exercise caution by not uploading sensitive material. The app’s privacy statement is vague, which isn’t a great sign, especially combined with the fact that it does not explicitly tell users it will be uploading their selfies. The terms indicate it also keeps metadata from photos and may identify or track you with cookies. It says it will not share or sell your photos, but data it collects from you could be anonymity and used for advertising or other purposes.

In addition to photos generated via the app, FaceApp’s privacy policy states that it also collects location information and information about users’ browsing history. “These tools collect information sent by your device or our Service, including the web pages you visit, add-ons, and other information that assists us in improving the Service,” the policy says.

And though it states that “we will not rent or sell your information to third parties outside FaceApp,” it explicitly says that it shares information with “third-party advertising partners,” in order to deliver targeted ads.

FaceApp CEO Yaroslav Goncharov has not yet responded to questions about the company’s privacy policy. But this type of privacy policy isn’t necessarily unusual, though it is definitely vague. It’s also yet another example of how tech companies quietly vacuum up information about their users in ways that aren’t immediately clear.

It also doesn’t help that FaceApp doesn’t exactly have the best track record. The app was widely criticized for “racist” selfie filters that lightened users’ skin tones in 2017, soon after it launched. A few months later, the app sparked even more outrage when it unveiled a series of “ethnicity change” filters.

If anything, the latest controversy about the app’s privacy practices is a sign that we might finally be starting to learn from Cambridge Analytica and so many other data privacy nightmares. Yes, the viral app of the moment might be irresistible, but there are reasons to think twice before giving up access to your information.

Data Collected by FaceApp

Some people online have claimed that FaceApp automatically uploads all the photos on your phone as soon as you use it for the first time. However security experts using network traffic analysers have cast doubt on this claim. It does not appear that the app uploads any photos until you ask it to.The terms of service of FaceApp are not very different from those of other applications.

The application states that it can collect “user content (for example, photos and other materials) that it publishes through the service”.

“We will not rent or sell your information to third parties outside FaceApp,” says their privacy notice.

But one aspect that analysts have highlighted is that FaceApp indicates that it can take the information to a different jurisdiction than the country where the user is.

Facial Recognition in FaceApp

A controversy similar to that of FaceApp revolved around Facebook at the beginning of the year with the call # 10YearsChallenge, the challenge of uploading a photo from 10 years ago and a current one to admire the passage of time.

There are plenty of papers that use tasks like taking features from one face and applying to another to demonstrate the quality of a generative model. Things like putting on or taking out glasses, changing gender, etc.

For example, if you have a good autoencoder for faces you can try to:

  1. Get latent representations for a photo of a person with and without glasses,
  2. Subtract them and add to a latent representation of your face without glasses
  3. GFenerate a new face with the result

Probably this would be a face of you wearing glasses, with varying degrees of success and quality. Kind of like the “king – man + woman = queen” in Word2vec? Many recent generative models can do something similar for pictures too.

Something like the DiscoGAN or CycleGAN can do even better by learning how to map from the subset of faces with glasses to the subset of faces without glasses even if you don’t have explicit glasses/no-glasses pairs of otherwise similar photos.

I am pretty sure that a CycleGAN​ could be trained to do exactly what this app do and probably would have results as good as the ones in the app. It’s just a question of manually tagging the celeb faces dataset with age/gender/etc labels and training the maps (and the results of the app look a lot like typical results using this dataset, so I suspect that’s exactly what they did).

But I suspect that you could even do it (probably with less quality) with a dcGAN based adversarial autoencoder, with the procedure I described above. I don’t know if it would match the quality of the results from this app but it would be an initial version.

End Points :

Some experts said that could serve as platforms for social networking that “train” their recognition tools facial that can be used both for commercial purposes (sell advertising) as of surveillance (private or government) like in past Brexit election was hacked using people’s data or we could say there profiles form social media , the idea was to find different POI( Point of interest) to show them relevant ads .

Although You can still install and run Android without these devices and everything works fine, but it’s not quite the same if you are used to these applications.

Why google apps don’t run on Rooted Phones

Devices that come with Google’s Play Store and other apps installed must pass Google’s Android “Compatibility Test Suite” for that purpose SafetyNet is used to detect whether your device is rooted or not.Rooting a device or installing a custom ROM prevents a device from being “CTS Compatible”. SO if a device is Not CTS compatible SafetyNet API can block Google apps in no time. so we will see how to Download and Install Google Apps.

How to Fix Windows 10 BSOD error 0x00000139 – KERNEL SECURITY CHECK FAILURE

How to Fix Windows 10 BSOD error 0x00000139 - KERNEL SECURITY CHECK FAILURE

Today I’m going to show you how to Fix Windows 10 BSOD error 0x00000139 blue screen of death so you might be getting on your Windows 10 machine. The error is mostly shown because there’s an issue with either a driver on your system. A newly Installed device driver or there’s some sort of problem with the system file. In random situations, the blue screen shows that the screen is frozen, which is why, regardless of the tasks I have done, I am forced to press the power button to restart the system. Every time this happens, you hope this is the last time, but unfortunately, the entire concatenation error appears again and again.

According to users and developers, Windows 10 is probably the greatest operating system Microsoft has released so far and will be released in the future so errors like Windows 10 BSOD error 0x00000139 are no big thing. Its design, new features such as Cortana, application support and more are highlighted everywhere.

On the other hand, experts and Windows 10 end users have been reporting information about Windows 10 errors, such as pop-ups, blue screen of death, freezes, automatic updates, reboots, and more. Although Microsoft does not stop trying to reduce Windows 10 errors, it is a daunting task that requires a lot of time and effort. So while Microsoft is working on fixing bugs and releasing updates, people are either suffering from system errors or waiting to modify or do it themselves. A few months ago, people began to complain that they started BSOD (Windows 10 BSOD error 0x00000139 ) after installing or launching the application from the Windows Store.

Windows 10 BSOD error 0x00000139 Troubleshooting

Before getting into long procedures take a look at these general troubleshooting tips may be helpful.

  1. If you recently added hardware to the system, try removing or replacing it. Or check with the manufacturer to see if any patches are available.
  2. If new device drivers or system services have been added recently, try removing or updating them. Try to determine what changed in the system that caused the new bug check code to appear.
  3. Check the System Log in Event Viewer for additional error messages that might help pinpoint the device or driver that is causing the error. For more information, see Open Event Viewer. Look for critical errors in the system log that occurred in the same time window as the blue screen.
  4. Look in Device Manager to see if any devices are marked with the exclamation point (!). Review the events log displayed in driver properties for any faulting driver. Try updating the related driver.
  5. Run a virus detection program. Viruses can infect all types of hard disks formatted for Windows, and resulting disk corruption can generate system bug check codes. Make sure the virus detection program checks the Master Boot Record for infections.

FIX Windows 10 BSOD error 0x00000139 Using Driver Verifier

It is estimated that about three-quarters of blue screens are caused by faulting drivers. Driver Verifier is a tool that runs in real time to examine the behavior of drivers. For example, Driver Verifier checks the use of memory resources, such as memory pools. If it sees errors in the execution of driver code, it proactively creates an exception to allow that part of the driver code to be further scrutinized. The driver verifier manager is built into Windows and is available on all Windows PCs. To start the driver verifier manager, type Verifier at a command prompt. You can configure which drivers you would like to verify. The code that verifies drivers adds overhead as it runs, so try and verify the smallest number of drivers as possible. For more information, see Driver Verifier.

Reason Behind Windows 10 BSOD error 0x00000139

The KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE blue screen of death error is related to Windows 10’s support for the Centennial / desktop bridging application, a new feature released by the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. This feature should have increased the number of generic Windows applications because it should allow all developers to create applications for desktop computers and upload them to the Windows Store. Unfortunately, it seems to be malfunctioning, which is why some applications are corrupted.

Therefore, if a user installs a corrupted application, his or her PC may crash and freeze, displaying BSOD KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE with error code 0x139. Fortunately, this bug can be solved by performing a system recovery.

Using Safe Mode to Solve Windows 10 BSOD error 0x00000139

Consider using Safe Mode when removing or disabling components. Using Safe Mode loads only the minimum required drivers and system services during the Windows startup.

To enter Safe Mode, use Update and Security in Settings.

  • Select Recovery->Advanced startup to boot to maintenance mode.
  • At the resulting menu, choose Troubleshoot-> Advanced Options -> Startup Settings -> Restart.
  • After Windows restarts to the Startup Settings screen, select option, 4, 5 or 6 to boot to Safe Mode.

Safe Mode may be available by pressing a function key on boot, for example, F8. Refer to information from the manufacturer for specific startup options.
