Filed under: Main — Tags: , — admin @ 12:01 am

Back in August, I wrote how I updated Wambooli to https, the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) URL. This move was done to avoid a warning that Google informed me would appear in the Chrome browser. Well, here it is in mid-October, just when Chrome is supposed to display the warning. So where it is?

Location Technology and Security

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

A while back, someone panicked. They realized that all their mobile device’s photos had a GEO-TAG, or location data, merged with the image.

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

Banking, shopping, and even paying your taxes can be done online. Unlike the 1990s, people are less paranoid about security, nor do they fret over typing in a credit card number.
