Why Android Malware is worse than you thought

The future will not only be about thinner, faster, and bendable smartphones, but it will definitely also be about security and bigger online threats.

Let’s imagine a scenario where you don’t need to take photos anymore because Google will simply choose the best pictures from a live stream of the day’s events just to make your life easier.

Soon you won’t even need to decide what to eat, your Android phone will know exactly what you need and what you like, showing you the most suitable foods for your age. So long decision paralysis, right?

But there’s so much hype around the future of Android that we forget to see the obvious threats, the alarmingly increasing number of Android malware, and the criminal activities carried out on smartphones.

Easily Unblock these Netflix-style Websites With A VPN

Youtube-not-available-in-your-country

Whether we live in a democratic or nondemocratic country, a lot of us often get this frustrating message: “This content is not available in your country.”

So it’s obvious that we are not all equal when it comes to accessing content from countries like the U.K and the US.

You must have seen this type of image more times than you can count. The quick and easy solution is using a VPN to unblock geo-restricted websites such as Hulu and Netflix.

You just have to change your IP with one located in the country where the site you want to access is not blocked. So if you want to watch Netflix US, just connect to a server in the US; if you want access to BBC iPlayer, connect to a server in the UK and so on.

To unblock websites with CyberGhost, all you have to do is create a CyberGhost account – it takes less than a minute – and then connect to one of our 500 secured servers located all over the world. More info on how to use CyberGhost.

Below, we put together a list of the most popular websites you can unblock with CyberGhost.

India blocks 857 adult websites in an attempt to prevent children from accessing them

blocked

In a move that stems from a totally legitimate concern – children have free access to adult websites – India’s department of telecommunications made a decision that managed not only to enrage its citizens, but also create heated debate regarding civil liberties and personal freedom by banning 857 such sites.

Casting a really wide net in this effort to clean up the Internet and “protect India’s cultural fabric,” as one official stated, the country has also banned popular sites 9gag and CollegeHumor for their not-suitable-for-children content.

Of course, as it often happens in cases like this, the #PornBan quickly became little more than a Twitter hashtag used to make jokes or condemn/criticize the Indian government, because Indians are now using proxy servers or free VPNs to bypass the ban and access the 857 websites again.

With its Free version, CyberGhost is one of the VPNs that India’s citizens are using to reclaim their civil liberties and enjoy an Internet without bans or restrictions.
