Navfree Latest Satellite Navigation Software for iPhone, iPad and Android Offline Maps - Better than Online Maps Nearly all mobile devices are constantly connected to the Internet. 3G, Wifi, LTE and 4G have become standards for smartphones. This is great for many applications such as email and web browsing, but for navigation a purely online map can cause problems. Roaming Cost – Online map applications require a constant data connection to download map data, this data is quite large and can quickly generate large phone bills when you are roaming in another country. Navmii and Navfree apps are different, they store all the map data on-board the phone itself, meaning you don’t need to use your Internet connection to navigate saving you money when you are traveling. Data Connection Reliability – We have all had the situation where even in big cities your phone’s data connection becomes very slow or doesn’t work at all. Safer driving You can download safety camera warnings for almost all countries we supply maps for. Route Guidance Intelligent Night mode Online Search

Facebook privacy and kids: Don’t post photos of your kids online Photo by Hemera/Thinkstock I vividly remember the Facebook post. It was my friend’s 5-year-old daughter “Kate,” (a pseudonym) standing outside of her house in a bright yellow bikini, the street address clearly visible behind her on the front door. A caption read “Leaving for our annual Labor Day weekend at the beach,” and beneath it were more than 50 likes and comments from friends—including many “friends” that Kate’s mom barely knew. The picture had been uploaded to a Facebook album, and there were 114 shots just of Kate: freshly cleaned and swaddled on the day of her birth … giving her Labradoodle a kiss … playing on a swing set. I completely understood her parents’ desire to capture Kate’s everyday moments, because early childhood is so ephemeral. Last week, Facebook updated its privacy policy again. Six thousand respondents to Slate’s survey show a clear trend. The problem is that Facebook is only one site. That poses some obvious challenges for Kate’s future self.

The most recent stories about the deliberate sabotage of security technology are the full stop at the end of a sentence that started on 8 August, when the founder of Lavabit (the privacy oriented email provider used by whistleblower Edward Snowden) abruptly shut down, with its founder, Ladar Levison, obliquely implying that he'd been ordered to secretly subvert his own system to compromise his users' privacy. It doesn't really matter if you trust the "good" spies of America and the UK not to abuse their powers (though even the NSA now admits to routine abuse), you should still be wary of deliberately weakened security. One important check against the NSA's war on security is transparency. Ultimately these are only as trustworthy as the people who run them. This is not a new problem. Our world is made up of computers.

CamStudio - Free Screen Recording Software 5 ways to easily increase your internet security - Seattle Political Buzz In this age of technology nothing is private. In fact, NSA whistleblower William Binney recently stated that literally every email sent in the US is recorded by the FBI. For those living in reality, it has been know that since the 90's under President Clinton, programs such as Echelon monitored nearly every phone call, fax, and email in the United States. Sites like Facebook have been known to record users web history even when they are logged out. Google has had to pay out millions for its privacy violations such as disabling privacy settings on Internet browsers to allow them to track you. Google Street View cars used to take pictures for Google Earth were caught stealing passwords and information from home computers it drove past.

Dienste und Software zum Verbergen der IP-Adresse Es ist einfach, einen anonymen Brief zu schreiben, auf den man keine Antwort erwartet: Man lässt einfach den Absender weg. Doch im Internet fließen die Daten immer in beide Richtungen. In den Datenpaketen muss also eine Absender-Adresse stehen, damit die in den Protokollen unumgängliche Antwort den Rückweg findet. Daher kann man die IP-Adresse nicht weglassen, sondern nur verschleiern. Die Verfahren dazu arbeiten im Kern alle gleich: Die Datenpakete laufen über eine zusätzliche Station, die ihre eigene IP-Adresse als Absender einsetzt, die Antwortpakete entgegennimmt und dem eigentlichen Absender durchreicht. Hier die drei Methoden im Überblick - samt Vor- und Nachteilen. Methode 1: Proxys - die Stellvertreter im Web Prinzip: Proxys sind Rechner im Internet, an die der Browser die Anforderung nach Webseiten schickt. Es gibt im Internet Listen mit offenen Proxy-Servern, die man direkt im Browser eintragen kann. Sie stellt auf dem Rechner einen lokalen Proxy bereit. 2.
