Huawei Plans To Release A Smartphone With 3 Movable Cameras

Another patent documenting educates us concerning the plans envisioned by Huawei. Here, we can see a smartphone with three camera sensors that can move from the back to the front of the smartphone.
This patent describes a smartphone that is equipped with a configuration with three camera sensors. With a small twist of course, these are integrated into a rotating part of the phone. Which would most likely be motorized.



The concept is reminiscent of the Asus Zenfone 6 of 2019. The latter had rightly seduced us for its ability to offer shots with the same quality at the front as at the rear.

Thanks to its motorized sensor. A fairly similar solution had also been adopted by Samsung with its Galaxy A80




As always, however, this is only a patent that does not determine whether a smartphone will use a design like this or not. Huawei’s advantage is that this concept could be used by the brand as well as by Honor, which tends to take a little more risk than its parent company. It is however possible that this design is simply that of the new Huawei P Smart Z for 2020. But we will obviously have to wait to determine it. What do you think about this design? let us know in the comment box below.

Jumia Closes Down it's Services in Rwanda.



According to Nairametrics, Africa’s e-commerce giant, Jumia, has continued to shut down its operations across Africa, with the latest being Rwanda.

The company recently sent a message to its Rwandan customers saying that We regret to inform you that Jumia will suspend our on-demand delivery operations in Rwanda on January 9th, 2020”. The company has been operating in the country over the past six years.




According to Financial Times, Jumia Rwanda will stop taking and processing customers’ orders starting from January 9th, 2020. For its prime subscribers, a separate arrangement will be made regarding their refunds.
Reason for the shutdown: The e-commerce company has recently been struggling to maintain profitability in its various markets, including Rwanda.




Managing Director of the Rwandan operation, Albert Munyabugingo, confirmed this. According to him, the financial struggle had informed the decision to shut down the Rwandan restaurant delivery service, as well as other operations across Africa.
 Last month, the company shut down its Cameroonian operation. One week afterwards, it shocked many more people by announcing that it had also decided to shut down its Tanzanian operation. Altogether, the company has completely shut down operations in about six African markets including Gabon and Congo.



Also bear it in mind that,  the company recently divested from its Jumia Travel arm in Nigeria, selling it to Travelstart. Employees affected by this development will reportedly be offered placements in Travelstart, Jumia Food, and Jumia Mall.
We hope this shutdown effect doesn't reaches Nigeria.

ExpressVPN and HP Partnership to Enhance Cybersecurity

ExpressVPN and HP Partnership to Enhance Cybersecurity

A virtual private network (VPN) is a secure way of communication between computing devices and the internet. VPNs are used to guard online users against snooping, interference, and attacks. ExpressVPN is a select type of VPN that acts as proxy hence allowing online users to change their locations and use the internet anonymously from any part of the world.  ExpressVPN is now working with HP to make its users stay safe and secure online. Through the partnership between ExpressVPN and HP, many HP customers will be secured from the first day with ExpressVPN preinstalled in their machines. 




About HP and Spectre x360 13
HP is a computer company that has been in the market for a long time with a variety of laptops and computers. The new HP Spectrex360 13 is 13% smaller compared to the previous generation, with a system Y dimension reduction of 23.4mm. The top border reduced by12mm and the bottom border reduced by 15mm. It will have ExpressVPN included in it and users will have a free 30-day VPN trial, which will enable them to have access to all ExpressVPN applications. When customers connect public Wi-Fi networks, they do not realize the security and privacy risks that they are bound to encounter, but through the use of ExpressVPN, all users will be safe when browsing the internet.

Inner Working of ExpressVPN
Through ExpressVPN TrustedServer Technology, all data will be deleted on every machine reboot since the VPN servers run on RAM alone. The server does not write on the hard drive to reduce data risk. On server startup, the whole software stack is reinstalled afresh. This technique being used by ExpressVPN is to make sure that all user information is safe and free from attacks. Deleting data on every machine reboot makes it hard for hackers to trace information on servers. 






Security techniques of EpressVPN
ExpressVPN makes use of four key strategies to meet their security and privacy goals. The VPN makes the system very difficult to compromise by not providing real physical locations and critical information. The multi-factor authentication is also used to make sure it difficult for intruders to access devices and systems. The VPN minimizes potential damage by doing data encryption and hashing using MD5 techniques. To reduce potential damage, the company has put measures to ensure that if an attack occurs, the amount of time the system can remain compromised is minimized. It utilizes intrusion detection systems and automatic robots to detect attacks. The last technique is the validation method where the company invites security researchers to test the systems and get rewards for any problems that they find. The company also performs regular audits to make sure they comply with regulatory policies.

Other Ways to Protect Yourself from Cybercrime

Other than using ExpressVPN, there are multiple measures you can take to secure your online privacy, such as:

Create Strong Passwords
Secure all your online accounts with strong, unique passwords to prevent online attacks. Neglecting password security can expose you to hacking, especially when browsing from an unsecured, public Wi-Fi network. Create a strong and unique password for every account by utilizing a combination of letters (both lowercase and uppercase), numbers, and special characters like #%&[email protected], etc. It’s also a good idea to make your password long enough (a minimum of 16 characters) to make it difficult for hackers to crack using brute force attack.





Update your Devices
Always keep your computer, tablet, and smartphone up to date with the latest security patches. More often, updating a computing device seems annoying and time-consuming, but it can help to prevent cybercriminals from exploiting any bugs or security flaws that may have penetrated your device prior to the update. 

Bottom Line
The ExpressVPN and HP partnership help users to securely browse the internet by hiding their IP address and location. The VPN encrypts communications using the 256-bit encryption to protect user-information when browsing the internet from public Wi-Fi networks. HP users can now stream HD videos on any device at the fastest speed since ExpressVPN has optimized its network to ensure fast speeds with no bandwidth limitations.  Moreover, users can unblock censored websites that are not available in certain countries. By using ExpressVPN, users can avoid spying and throttling by government, network administrators, and ISPs.

With a website you can also use emerging and fast growing marketing techniques like Affiliate Marketing and Influencer Marketing to get other people to recommend your products and services online.
These influencers and affiliate marketers can easily recommend your product page or service page driving their fans and followers to it. These could result in massive sale if you play it right.

Without a website, customers can’t get up to date information about your business. Imagine a customer not being able to reach you through an old phone number you left in an old ad campaign in a newspaper.
That is very wicked of you. The customer is king and should not be toyed with. Build a business website,’ and update it regularly too.

5. Promote Your Contacts
A business website will enable you populate the web with your office addresses and other channels through which customers can reach you.

List Of Countries Where Whatsapp Has Been Banned

http://www.appcreator24.com/apk/app708243.apk

WHATSAPP is currently the world’s most popular chat medium, about 1.5 billion users around the globe. However, some people are yet to know that WhatsApp has been banned in certain countries. We have  mapped the regions where WhatsApp is blocked.


It is no good news for social networking and communication apps to be banned in multiple countries. The main reason cited behind such communication restrictions are concerns over national security. Other countries claim such chat app bans help support local telecommunication companies. Below are the list of countries where using WhatsApp is restricted or totally banned.





North Korea

North Korea is permanently under the international spotlight due to dictatorial leader Kim Jong Un’s bellicose rhetoric and military grandstanding.
Censorship in North Korea ranks among some of the most extreme in the world.
In a country where citizens are starved of any information other than government propaganda, the internet too is dictated by the needs of the state.
This is why North Korea offers only limited access to social networks like Facebook and WhatsApp.





Cuba

Cuba has dramatically restricted the usage of internet and chat platforms.
Censorship in Cuba is extensive, has resulted in European Union sanctions and statements of protest from governments around the world.
Cuba consequently ranks low in the Press Freedom Index.
In Cuba, only politicians, journalists and select students are legally eligible to access the internet and social platforms like WhatsApp.
The surprising reasons cited are not political concerns, but the high cost of internet usage which is said to exceed the average salary of Cuban residents.

Iran

Censorship in Iran is extensive, with Reporters Without Borders describing Iran as “one of the world’s most repressive countries for journalists for the past 40 years”.
The blocking of WhatsApp has been seen in Iran on a number of occasions.
Little reason has been given, but it is most likely due to security and censorship concerns.

Syria

Internet censorship in Syria is extensive, with the war-torn country banning websites for political reasons and arrests people accessing them.
Besides WhatsApp, Syria has also blocked websites like YouTube and Facebook.




UAE

The blocking of voice and video calling through WhatsApp is common, with the promotion of local telecommunication service providers with the supposed reason.
UAE has a history of welcoming residents from countries including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh who frequently use WhatsApp to connect with their family and friends, resulting in the loss in profits for local UAE telecommunication companies.

China
WhatsApp has been blocked by the Chinese Government during political campaigns because of the chat app’s strong encryption features.
The Chinese government censors content for mainly political reasons, but also to maintain its control over the populace. However, according to previous trends in China, these WhatsApp bans are usually only temporary and usually lifted within a few months.
