Is Cell Phone Monitoring Technology Worthwhile?

There’s no doubt that the coming of cell phone spying app technology has made life so much easier. Business owners have a lesser risk of losing potential business opportunities if they keep their cell phones close. Moreover, now employers can keep track of the whereabouts of their employees and track their internet usage while they are at work, with the sole purpose of increasing productivity at the workplace. In personal life too, cell phone technology has come as a solution to so many problems. Spouses can keep in touch through the day, coordinate and plan daily activities, keep in touch with their children while they are away, and make sure their loved ones are safe.

Who are the Most Users of a Cell Phone Spying App?

Apart from the reasons for using cell phones, with technological advances, the online gaming experience has changed drastically. Children and adults alike become addicted to online games and download the apps into their cell phone for easy access. These sorts of cell phone activities prove to be major distractions and the cause of decreased productivity. Not just gaming, but excessive use of social media sites has also become a major concern for business owners.

Another side to the big picture is that while the majority of people are using modern technology and the internet to improve their lifestyles, some wicked people behind the scenes are using it to cause harm. Hacking has become one of the greatest threats online, espionage and cheating have become part of the competitive ideology, and at the same time, sexual predators, kidnappers, and blackmailers are using technology.

Who are the most vulnerable people with the most to lose because of technology? The answer is mind boggling, but Sarsonline confirms that everyone is at great risk, not just children, adult women, or adult men. The reason for this is that the majority cell phone users are android and iOS smartphones users.

Android and iOS Smartphone Users Stats

Here’s a graphical representation of the number of android smartphone users in the world from 2014 until 2019, according to statista. Based on the statistical facts below, there will be approximately 2,082.7 million expected Android device users in the world by the end of 2016.

On the other hand, it seems there are fewer iPhone users, with the figures being as low as 150.26 million. Based on this comparison, it is obvious that Android smartphone users are quite many, which explains why Google Play Store offers a larger number of apps. Due to increasing online security threats, a majority of cell phone users have been downloading monitoring apps.

Why Monitoring Apps are Worthwhile

Xnspy and similar monitoring apps allow users to remotely access the target’s emails, text messages, browsing history, internet messengers, installed apps, call logs, make screenshots, lock the device remotely, track the device and hence the target person’s current location through GPS tracking. This can help keep people safe and make sure they use their cell phones responsibly without letting it affect productivity at workplaces and at schools in the case of children.

Potential Victims of Online Threats

Not using mobile monitoring can make people vulnerable to predators and other harmful activities online. According to the same research by Sarsonline.org mentioned above, no ethnicity in the U.S. is safe. Sexual predators attack as many as 80% of cell phone users who are whites, 18.8% victims are blacks, 6.8% are from Asian Pacific areas, 34.1% are Alaskans, 3% are American men, and 24.4% are mixed races. Every race living in the U.S. has a minimum of 17.6% sexual assault victims who become targets via cell phone activities.

What Makes People a Potential Target?

While using cell phones has become an integral part of modern lifestyle, many users ignore taking security measures like installing a cell phone spying app. Sharing personal information like home address, social security number, family details, etc. People who readily take the risk of going on blind dates with complete strangers are also an easy target. Children below the age of thirteen and teenagers are also an easy target for online predators, cyberbullies, and kidnappers. Anyone who uses internet messengers like WhatsApp, Facebook, Viber, Skype, Line, and Kik, who text frequently, and call random people too often are at risk.
To wrap things up, people who are constantly using emails via their cell phones and who use the browser on their cell phone for online transactions are also at risk. Saving personal banking details, passwords, and login details on the browser is not a good idea, especially while using a public or shared Wi-Fi connection, even at work. With monitoring apps installed on target cell phones, business owners and parents can make sure that their target people avoid being careless with online activity and use their cell phones in the right way.

How To Unblock Yourself on WhatsApp If Someone Has Blocked You

In last post I mentioned about how to find if someone has blocked you on WhatsApp. Today, lets find out how to unblock yourself. It’s a simple trick that can come handy if you want to reach out to someone to clarify any sort of misunderstandings.

Following steps will unblock you, if someone has blocked you –

  • Go to WhatsApp settings
  • Click account and then click on delete my account
  • Go ahead deleting your account by entering your phone number and delete your account.
  • Afterwards, uninstall WhatsApp from your mobile.
  • Then, restart your phone.
  • Now, again install WhatsApp with same old number.
  • Once installed, you’ll get unblocked from all other accounts.
  • However, you’ll be removed from all your existing groups. So choose this method sparingly.

How To Find If Someone Has Blocked You On WhatsApp?

Have you ever tried to find out if someone has blocked you in WhatsApp? I hope you don’t have to be in that situation. However, there are various indicators that may tell you that, you are blocked by someone:

  1. Firstly, you will not to see their ‘last seen’ or ‘online’ status.
  2. Also, you will no longer see any updates to their profile photo. You will always find same old photo.
  3. Moreover, if you try to send any message to them, you’ll always see one check mark which is a message sent indicator. You will never see the second check mark which is a message delivered confirmation.
  4. Lastly, if you try to call them then it will not go through.

There is no direct way to know if someone has blocked you. But you see all these indicators then most likely that person has blocked you. And telling you that, he or she is really annoyed with you. However, often some people turn off all these four indicators for privacy issues. Hence, you may never know if someone has really blocked you or just avoiding answering your messages. But whatever is the reason, just try to get connected with the person through other ways to apologies, just in case, if any of your action has offended them.

How to read Whatsapp messages without showing Whatsapp blue tick

Whatsapp blue tick is a heck of a problem, right? Have you ever received a message on Whatsapp which you wanted to read so much but did not want to let the person know that you had read it. Have you ever cursed the Whatsapp blue tick ? So I have been researching about it lately for some reason and the most common solution I came across was Airplane mode or Flight mode. But I checked it by myself and to my surprise it doesn’t work at all. Even if you watch the message in Airplane mode and close Whatsapp completely before turning off Airplane mode, as soon as you connect to Internet, the sender sees the Whatsapp blue tick, hence not useful. So here’s my solution

  1. Go to Playstore and update your Whatsapp
  2. Now come back to Whatsapp and go to settings>Account>Privacy
  3. Uncheck the “Read receipts” option and you are all done.
whatsapp-blue-tick
Hide Whatsapp Blue Tick

 

Now even if you read any messages on Whatsapp , your sender won’t see any Whatsapp blue tick. The problem with this process is, its a two way process. So you will also not be allowed to see the blue tick. If that is not the solution you want, here’s one more solution for you. With this solution you will be able to see the Whatsapp message without showing the blue tick to your sender but you can see the blue tick as soon as someone reads your whatsapp message.

Just simply download another app from PlayStore, there are many apps , some of them are

  1. Shh, No Last seen or Read
  2. Blue tick, last seen hider

So just download any of this app, activate and follow instruction and you are all set.

Keep Whatsapping, secretly.

Next Possible Updates For Whatsapp

With new and new competitors in the market, have you ever thought what could be the next possible updates for Whatsapp, specialy after being bought by Facebook? What possibly Facebook can do with Whatsapp? Here is what we think can be done (or may be already in progress)

  1. Video Chat: Since Facebook already has this technology and recently Reliance Jio Chat app introduced video chat, the next possible update for Whatsapp can be Video chat. Just imagine how cool that would be to do video chat with your friends over Whatsapp
  2. Facebook Whatsapp chat integration: This should be definitely come next. In fact we believe that rather than promoting web.whatsapp.com Facebook should have integrated Whatsapp chat with facebook (something similar what they have done with Skype) so that people can whatsapp easily from facebook chat and vice versa.
  3. Mobile Payment: Since Whatsapp has become really big and people are still struggling with mobile payment, rather than introducing a new app, Facebook should come up with a solution with Whatsapp and for that they should keep these things on mind
    • Unlike Paytm people should also be allowed to withdraw money
    • Since Whatsapp is directly link phone number, people should be allowed to send money to any whatsapp account
    • The main problem lies in converting virtual money to real money. What if  Whatsapp can transfer that money to your bank account directly (may be with a nominal charge)
  4. Whatsapp should replace Truecaller: Since Whstapp also has the database and number of whatsapp users are far more than truecaller.

Reliance Jio Chat Review

Reliance Just Launched Reliance Jio Chat (Messaging App)

We have done a quick brief review because you need to know if you should be using this. Lets talk about some extra features which you have never seen before –

  • Video calling -Reliance Jio chat app allows you to do video chat which so far was only allowed with hangout, Skype & Viber. Whatsapp and other messaging apps do allow calling option but video chat is the next level.
  • SMS – Remember Way2SMS? Reliance Jio chat app also allows user to send SMS to people who are not on Jio chat but there’s a limit which is 100 sms/month for all users which we believe is very low but still better than nothing.
  • Channel -Reliance Jio chat app also has few channels which you can follow to stay updated.
  • Contacts -Reliance Jio chat app shows all your contacts under contacts of this app and doesn’t wait till they come to Jio Chat.

Calling Review

We have tried the video calling and calling which worked pretty good. We used wifi and 3G both. Clarity of calling and video calling was good enough, in fact we were quite impressed by it. If you call someone, you can also add someone else to the same call and do a conference. The Video calling was smooth on wifi and 3G both. While other messaging app requires almost 600kb for calling, this app requires only 450kb which is again good.

SMS Review

Two major problems here

  1. The SMS gets delivered after 2-3 hours and not immediately
  2. It does not deliver the message directly, it tells the receiver that the sender has sent a message and if the receiver intends to receive it, he/she needs to reply “Y”. To me its a very complicated process and the probability of replying with a “Y” is very less.

Other Review

The look and feel of Reliance Jio chat app is average. You can send files and other stuffs to contacts which is expected. While cropping profile picture once you crop the image it should automatically increase so that you can crop better which doesn’t happen here which makes cropping a little difficult. You can change the background, which is cool. Though you have channels but we couldn’t find amazing content on those channels. We would have loved if they had some public chats like Viber.

Wise to migrate?

The one and only answer is whether your friends are there. Reliance Jio Chat app has better feature and once they launch Jio 4G in India, we are pretty sure they will try to promote Reliance Jio chat app but until and unless your friends are there, you wouldn’t go there, this is not very sensible but this is what happens. So the question comes to marketing and promoting. But is it wise to migrate from Whatsapp to Jio? We would say Yes but at the same time we believe Whatsapp will also have some cool features very soon and who knows Facebook integration, SMS and video calling can be part of their new updates.

Reliance Jio chat Rating: 3.5/5

Reliance Jio chat Review: Should give it a try, easy to use, video calling allowed

Blinkist: An App For Life Long Learners

Do you love reading and learning from non-fiction books?

Or would you at least love to read it more often but run out of time throughout the day that you’re unable to keep up with that 20-40 min of daily reading recommendations by Tony Robbins, James Altucher, Ryan Holiday?

Then here’s an app that will help you exercise your brain and get your reading index higher day by day.

Introducing Blinkist

Blinkist is an app for tablets and smartphones that allows you to save time from reading the complete book from beginning to end without compromising on the important message of the book.

It condenses a non-fiction book to bite-sized compilation of chapters, called as ‘Blink’. The chapters do a great job to pass on the underlying content to you.

And it’s not a reason to stop reading books altogether, but a way to inspire yourself to get a taste of the sampler before you want to order the whole course.

Blinks aren’t meant to replace books. Blinks are made to be brief, so their very format keeps them from filling a book’s formidable (if imaginary) shoes.

You can select books in a wide array of topics viz, psychology, marketing, personal development, entrepreneurship, health, etc.

We read over 1,000 books per year for you and provide you with the most important facts – so you can do more, earn more and be more. All by spending less time reading.

Highly recommended to people who are passionate about life-long learning and want to instill their minds with invaluable knowledge that they can use in their personal lives to learn and grow.

Download Blinkist

The app is available for download in Apple itunes store and Google Play Store.

“Blinkist offers a terrific service – great ideas distilled down to their very essence. For those of us who are deeply curious about new ideas on success, happiness, innovation, progress and more, it’s a great start.” – Forbes

Give it a try with the three days free offer that allows you to scan and read through their huge list of non-fiction books.

Don’t want to pay?? You can still read one book a day that they offer you to access and read for free.

So what are you waiting for?

Go exercise your brain.

You were born curious. Start learning now!
