Websites Without HTTPS (SSL Certificates) to be Flagged by Google Chrome From January 2017

Google will start to downgrade HTTP sites on its Chrome browser from January 2017 by marking them out as less secure in a bid to stop people visiting sites run by crooks and scammers.

The move means that legitimate website operators without HTTPS websites need to act. Google has long hinted at such a move so it should not come as a huge surprise.

"To help users browse the web safely, Chrome indicates connection security with an icon in the address bar. Historically, Chrome has not explicitly labelled HTTP connections as non-secure," said Emily Schechter from the Chrome Security team in a blog post.

"Beginning in January 2017 (Chrome 56), we'll mark HTTP sites that transmit passwords or credit cards as non-secure, as part of a long-term plan to mark all HTTP sites as non-secure.
http site to be flag by google chrome

"A substantial portion of web traffic has transitioned to HTTPS so far, and HTTPS use is consistently increasing. We recently hit a milestone with more than half of Chrome desktop page loads now served over HTTPS.

"In addition, since the time we released our HTTPS report in February, 12 more of the top 100 websites have changed their serving default from HTTP to HTTPS."

Google is very keen on this sort of thing, and recently applied the HTTPS padlock sign to Gmail.

"Studies show that users do not perceive the lack of a 'secure' icon as a warning and become blind to warnings that occur too frequently. Our plan to label HTTP sites more clearly and accurately as non-secure will take place in gradual steps, based on increasingly stringent criteria," said Schechter.

"Chrome 56 will label HTTP pages with password or credit card form fields as not secure, given their particularly sensitive nature.

"In following releases, we will continue to extend HTTP warnings, for example, by labelling HTTP pages as ‘not secure' in Incognito mode, where users may have higher expectations of privacy.

"Eventually, we plan to label all HTTP pages as non-secure, and change the HTTP security indicator to the red triangle that we use for broken HTTPS."

Google Gapps is an acronym of Google Apps which actually means some Google Pre-installed application that comes with every Android device and example of such application are Google Play Store, Keyboard, Gmail and so much more of the default Google Application that comes on every Android Phone. learn more

If you install a clean Android Custom Rom, you will notice the absence of the aforementioned apps and that is what necessitate the installation of Google GAPPS that comes in a handy package and will provide all those applications at once.

As you are very much aware, you cannot install a custom rom on your android device without rooting the phone and exactly after installing the Android Custom ROM, then you need to install GAPPS that will bring all the default google application you required to enjoy your newly installed custom ROM.

Now i actually believe you know what Google GAPPS means and it no more a strange thing to you as an android user, what remains is for us to look on the tutorial on how to download and install Google Gapps on your phone.

When installing GApps, you’ll want to make sure that you install the version that matches your Android ROM. For example, if you are running Android 4.4 Kit Kat, download and install GApps for KitKat.

Step 2: Boot into Recovery (CWM or TWRP)

Kaspersky Uncovers Banking Trojan Riding on the Back of Google Adsense

Security firm Kaspersky Lab has uncovered a banking trojan that is being distributed via Google AdSense, and is therefore able to force itself on users with no interaction.
"We encountered a gratuitous act of violence against Android users. By simply viewing their favourite news sites over their morning coffee users can end up downloading last-browser-update.apk, a banking trojan detected by Kaspersky Lab solutions as Trojan-Banker.AndroidOS.Svpeng.q," warned the Kaspersky researchers in a blog post.
"It turns out the malicious program is downloaded via the Google AdSense advertising network. Be warned, lots of sites use this network - not just news sites - to display targeted advertising to users. Site owners are happy to place advertising like this because they earn money every time a user clicks on it.

"But anyone can register their ad on this network - they just need to pay a fee. And it seems that didn't deter the authors of the Svpeng trojan from pushing their creation via AdSense. The trojan is downloaded as soon as a page with the advert is visited."

These kind of attacks are not new, and Kaspersky blurted out an alert about an incident at the Meduza news portal in July which has since been fixed.

"The Svpeng family of banking trojans has long been known to Kaspersky Lab and possesses a standard set of malicious functions. After being installed and launched, it disappears from the list of installed apps and requests the device's admin rights," the post continued.

"Svpeng can steal information about the user's bank cards via phishing windows, intercept, delete and send text messages (this is necessary for attacks on remote banking systems that use SMS as a transport layer) and counteract mobile security solutions that are popular in Russia by completing their processes.

"In addition, Svpeng collects an impressive amount of information from the user's phone: the call history, text and multimedia messages, browser bookmarks and contacts."

Google to Launch Duo Video Calling App

Google has started the rollout of end-to-end encrypted video calling app Duo as the company rejigs its video chat line-up to take on Apple's FaceTime video calling service. Announced at this year's Google I/O, Duo, along with its AI messaging app Allo, are set to supersede not only Google Hangouts but even more functionality from Google+. The Duo rollout has begun for those who pre-registered as part of Google Play's new Early Access scheme. It's based on your phone number, like WhatsApp.

Google has confirmed in a blog post that the release is worldwide and will be completed in the next few days, bringing it into direct competition with apps like WhatsApp and FaceTime and possibly finally bringing video calling to the mainstream.
google duo video calling app

It also includes a feature called Knock Knock that allows the person being called to see the caller before answering the phone.

"Knock Knock makes video calling more spontaneous and welcoming, helping you connect with the person before you even pick up," Google claimed.

So where does this leave Hangouts? The short answer is 'de-emphasised', with plans to concentrate it on the enterprise sector.

One early feature that will be gone, however, is Hangouts OnAir, the vaguely Periscope-like feature which still tangles Hangouts with Google+. This will be removed from Plus and will become part of YouTube from 12 September. YouTube Live, to be precise.

Useful google tips and tricks to help improve your search result

Its no doubt that google is the world most used search engine because of its simplicity and how it gives relevant required result to its users. you can find almost 90% of anything about life in google search engine because of how everything about how we do and what we do is been uploaded and posted everyday. Many people uses google as their default search engine but only some have the ability to search  and get everything they need and that is what necessitate this post to enlighten those who don't always get what they are looking for in google.

Today i will share some relevant tips and tricks on how you can use google and search everything you need which should either be in form of file  types, serial keys for product software's, get result from a specific site only, compare related site or blog to another, get definitions of everything easily and many more.
Now without wasting much effort and time let's get started

Search within the boundary of a specific site or blog 

Many users want to search a specific file or information on a particular site but as a result of using the wrong keywords, google will be displaying result from other similar related sites. For instance when you want to search information related to education and you prefer result from a specific university then here is how you can do it release of admission  

Note: denotes that your result will be from this website only and  any word that comes after it or before it is your search words.

With this keywords you can have a result from google about release of admission within the boundary of unimaid website, or for instance  your searching something on the net but you want the result within the boundary of this blog free browsing on android
here is the result on google

As you can see all the above result are from this blog likewise for other site that you did.

Search by file type or extension

I think this one is more preferable and suitable for those addicted to downloading of school information and/or assignment in PDF format because with this search tip you can specify which type of file you want in your search result e.g files with this extensions, JPGs, PDFs, PPTs or XLS format. Here is how you can search it

Filetype: [follow by the 3-letter abbreviation before the search keyword]

eg filetype: pdf learn blogging

you will have this result with pdf formats

Likewise for other format that you search

Search useful related site or pages 

Many sites offer similar content which is related to one and the other, you might be getting important updates from one blog which is used to deliver quality content about news and entertainment but you don't know that there is another blog which is far better than that you already know. Now the question is how can you get similar site or blog which operate in the same niche i.e related pages or site. Let's take google for instance as a search engine, you might want to switch to another search engine apart from google, That's how you are going to  do it:
you can see there is alternative of using yahoo, bing and other, and all the sites displayed at the result are search engine sites.

Search for words and get the definition easily

Applicable to students who are finding definition of some words a little bit tough than as usual, you can be able to get definition of word directly from google search engine without being send from one site to the other. Simply and easily put define: before any word in google search box to get its definition easily

define: marketing 

Remember word not sentence

 Be specific by using web friendly and less words

Some people tend to claim that they don't find what they are searching in google, which i will consider their statement as false because in this generation that we are, you can find almost everything in search engine but how do you search is the problem. Let's take for instance you want to know some clue in solving a mathematics question, you don't have to write all the formula's in google search box rather write the name of the topic and formula which you can have at list a brief explanation of the in problem in question.

When always searching on google don't exceed your keywords to be almost over 70 or more characters in length so that you will have the required result on the spot at the first page.

e.g how to get the best tech blog in nigeria use this instead best tech blog in nigeria or nigeria best tech blog always try to minimise words and go straight to the point.

Sometimes you might want to look at the meaning of a certain phrase but as a result of you not specifying, the search engine can bring some sort of result which you are not in need. Always use quotation mark in searching for a phrase for instance "mark zuckerberg" will present good and direct result than mark zuckerberg

How to search for product and software serial keys easily

You may download a software but don't have the product key and yet when you search google doesn't produce desired result. you can easily use this method  to search for product serial keys at once.

At the google search engine box, type 9FBR at the end of the software or product your searching for the serial, e.g

windows 9FBR
here is the result

7 Sure Reasons why You Should Date a Mature Woman

Sponsored Post 

Traditionally, it happened so that almost all men of the world married young girls. It has been lasting for many centuries and this was natural. Men were hunters. They had to be adult enough to provide their families. Young wives took care of them and gave birth to their children. It was so. Of course, not all of such marriages were perfect. There were pluses and minuses in marriages where men were much older than girls. But times have changed. Now there are many couples where men prefer mature women instead of young ones and it is not surprisingly.

7 Sure Reasons why You Should Date a Mature Woman

Advantages of such relationships
So, what are the pros of dating adult women, particularly mature Ukrainian ladies?

1.       The most important advantage of an adult wife is that she is wiser than a young girl.
She can find a way out of those conflicts that may lead to a breakup of the family with a girl of the same age or with a young girl. And this advantage is reflected in the most favorable way in the life together.

2.       One of the advantages of such a union is the availability of time that a woman is ready to devote to her lover.
As a rule, a mature woman is no longer burdened with studies, career and little kids. This allows her to pay more attention to romantic relationships. Planning a meeting with a Russian woman, you can be sure in her schedule.

3.       A middle-aged woman is much more experienced and knows how to behave in this or that situation.
She was already married and, most likely, had more than one man, and she knows what to expect. Experienced women are less inclined to emotions and behave better with men than their younger rivals.

4.       A mature woman is experienced not only in life issues but also in bed.
Many men think that they know everything about sex, but a mature woman can teach them better than anybody else. Some ladies deliberately look for meetings with young, full-strength men to satisfy their sexual needs. Such couples have the highest sexual compatibility. Sexologists have long pointed out that the peak of female sexuality is about 27-30 years, and the male’s one is 21-23. His energy and the ability to quickly restore strength are perfectly combined with her experience. Thus, both partners can regularly receive the maximum sexual satisfaction.
7 Sure Reasons why You Should Date a Mature Woman

5.       As a rule, women realize their true destiny only with years.
Many young girls like to live in an atmosphere of idleness and entertainment, but they tend to devote themselves to family life with age. An older woman better maintains cleanliness and aesthetic beauty of her house, she is more skillful in the culinary field and approaches the process of planning and raising children more responsibly. A girl becomes more feminine over the years. She will be able to create so much-needed comfort and coziness for a man. And young couples break up exactly because of the absence of that.

6.       Men often complain that their girls don’t know what they want.
A mature woman no longer plays games that are based on nerves and emotions and knows what she needs. She will not play “cat and mouse”, but she will also direct a man in the right direction.

7.       In general, middle-aged women are more financially independent.
This means that they don’t need financial support. This is not unimportant thing considering that the problems with money have a huge impact on a relationship.
7 Sure Reasons why You Should Date a Mature Woman

In fact, you shouldn't pay attention to the age because human years are just numbers. And the age is determined by the state of the soul and the way of life. Therefore, look for a person who will become a reliable support in life, will please you, will be able to share one life for two. Find a Ukrainian girl. There will be no reason for quarrels and breakups if you have the bright feeling of love and the desire to be together.
