Things to consider while using GPS Location-Sharing

11th January 2022
"Most smartphones as well as some ordinary cellphones, allow you to run location-sharing software that uses the phone's GPS technology to notify friends and relatives of your precise location."

Most smartphones as well as some ordinary cellphones, allow you to run location-sharing software that uses the phone's GPS technology to notify friends and relatives of your precise location.

This technique has a wide range of applications but you need to be careful with it.

Here is a list of safety tips for GPS location sharing:

Decide what is best for you

 Some location-sharing services are games that allow you to give a shout-out when you arrive at a certain area. Others show you where you are all the time or for a certain amount of time.

Others will continue to disclose your location unless you modify your settings. Make sure you understand how your service will disclose your location.

Learn about the privacy features of the service

There are privacy measures in place for all services.

Learn about them and use their capabilities to ensure that you have total control over who knows where you are.

Understand who your connections are

Some location services function similarly to Facebook and other social networking sites, in that you may invite and accept friends.

This implies that others may search for you and add you as a friend if you're online.

It's crucial to remember that sharing your location with someone you've never met in person is dangerous, so limit friend requests and share your location only with people you know and trust.

Make sure that every single service you use allows you total control over who may see your location.

Syncing with other services.

If your location-sharing app connects to Facebook, Twitter, or another site, you may be broadcasting your current location to a large number of people without even realizing it.

You can potentially be revealing your location to strangers. Check to verify if your service syncs with other services, and be sure to manage this appropriately.

It's generally preferable to disable this function and solely use the service's own sharing capabilities to expose your location to individuals you trust.

Can others find out where you are?

 There are services that allow people to "check you in" to a certain area.

Check any location or social networking services you use to see whether they have this function and if so, learn how it works and what privacy settings are available.

Consider whether you wish to protect others from finding you, and never reveal another person's location without first checking with them.

Get Rid of Mobile Addiction | Tips |

7th January 2022
"Addiction to smartphones is a serious issue!"

Addiction to smartphones is a serious issue! We check our mobile phones incessantly when conversing, working, walking, and driving, even though we know we shouldn't.

We just can't help ourselves! So, here are some ideas to assist you to break free from your phone addiction:

Don’t use your phone in bed

Making your bed a phone-free zone is the first step in breaking your smartphone addiction.

Don't let your phone be the last thing you see before going to bed and the first thing you check in the morning.

If you use a conventional alarm clock and charge your phone out of reach you will not be waking up with loads of messages and notifications.

Moreover, blue light disrupts your sleep hormones.

Delete unnecessary apps

In any case, the majority of the apps on your phone are probably simply cluttered.

Keep the applications you want to encourage yourself to use front and center, such as those for reading or learning a new language, but move anything you want to restrict your time with to folders on your second page of apps (or if you have an Android phone, off the screen entirely).

Consider how much more productive you'd be if you weren't constantly checking Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

Keep yourself on a schedule

The first thing you can do is set alerts that define how frequently you may check your phone. Begin with every 15 minutes, then every half hour, every 45 minutes, and finally every hour.

When your alarm goes off, take one minute to look through all alerts and then reset the timer.

Have a phone-free day once a week

Do something out of the ordinary once a week, such as leaving your phone at home. For a whole day (or even half a day if you're just starting out).

Step outdoors! Then return later on to catch up on all of the emails and texts you missed.

Turn off notifications

Notification is the major reason we open our mobile every now and then. There's no reason to check your phone if you don't have any notifications.

Turning off push notifications for as many applications as possible is an extremely simple technique to reduce distractions.

To change your notification settings, go to Settings > Notifications.
