As you work on your laptop while on the move. You are bound to connect to various Wi-Fi networks across your city or several cities. Each time you log into a new Wi-FI network, your Mac laptop (well even Windows or Linux laptop) keeps in memory each SSID and its associated password for all the Wi-Fi you will have connected to.

After a while, your laptop becomes a digital keychain with passwords for various Wi-Fi network spread out across your city and/or several cities. There may come a time you visit one of the establishments whose Wi-Fi network you have already connected to in the past, and they haven’t changed the password yet.

You may also have with you a new device that has never connected to the given Wi-Fi network before.

Opera reintroduces built-in VPN for Android almost a year after abandoning ship

Opera Software might have realized, one-year later, it did a big mistake winding up the standalone VPN app it had released in August 2016. The app went for about a year before the company decided to shut it down, and leaving the countless people who had grown accustomed to using it.

As it wound up the Opera VPN, it left no option for the users but to seek an alternative VPN from the app store. Late last week, the company decided to correct its mistake and reintroduced the VPN, but this time as a built-in feature for its mobile browser for Android devices.

The feature is available in beta around the world and is an unlimited and no-log VPN feature on the beta Opera browser for Android. This development is somewhat disappointing as the previous Opera VPN was a standalone VPN that encrypted your phone’s entire traffic. That means all apps on your phone including the Opera mobile browser had their data encrypted through the VPN.

However, with the built-in VPN on the Opera mobile browser, it only means just traffic flowing through the browser will be encrypted. …read more

U.S. President about to sign an Executive Order banning use of Huawei network equipment

Lately, China’s biggest telecommunication technology firm Huawei has been receiving one turn down after the other from governments across the world. The company can trace back the root of this unfortunate turn of event to the United States where last year several security chiefs raised concern about the Huawei telecommunication infrastructure.

Ever since many governments, particularly those in the West, have either backtracked or paused any telecommunication upgrading they were to undertake using the Huawei infrastructure. To make matters worse, the company’s CFO has been arrested and charged with wire fraud and conspiracy. At the same time, there are allegations that the company stole technology for ‘diamond glass’ screens.

Now, a new report by Politico claims that the U.S. President Donald Trump is prepping up to sign an executive order banning all carriers in the country from using any telecommunication equipment. Though the executive order is a blanket ban on all Chinese telecommunication technology firms, it doesn’t take a genius to see the bull’s eye is on the back of Huawei.

President Trump is expected to sign the executive order as soon as this week. When he does, …read more
