Hello nerds and nerdesses, welcome to The Osai Effect
Internet security is one thing that a number of us take for granted, from our pin numbers, to our passwords, our GPS coordinates and so many others. The laxity in internet security is the motivator for the segment and we are gonna share as much as we can to keep your identity, your data and your money safe.
Today, we are gonna be talking about ‘Check In’ and ‘Location’ on Facebook. The Check-In feature was designed for one to check in into a public place or place of interest so that they could find landmarks and friends. I believe the location button in messages was also created for similar purposes. However nice these features are, hackers are on the prowl and these features give them a diplomatic passport into our devices.
Sharing locations is good but it’s pretty unadvisable when at home as we could be tracked to a very good degree of accuracy using Google Maps! (It’s a free app on Android!) We should take care to put it off when sending messages to people who we do not know personally and we should always put our GPS off until we want to use it.
First and foremost, we want to express our sincere gratitude to y’all for staying by us all through this time. We appreciate the emails, BBMs and follows on Twitter. We say a big thank you!
If you follow us on Twitter, you would have heard say that we were working on some new segments which we will be introducing [HOPEFULLY] next week. TO ensure you have the very best of everything, we are adding the segments ‘Internet Security Tips’ and ‘Electronic Library’ which would come on Sundays.
INTERNET SECURITY has always been a major concern in the cybernetic world, what with hackers, fraudsters and cyber terrorists on the prowl. In this section, we would be giving y’all simple tips on how to reduce the chance of getting hacked or defrauded out of your hard earned money or your personal data exposed to the world.
ELECTRONIC LIBRARY, The Osai Effect is always very concerned about education in Nigeria and we believe education and recreation go hand in hand and so we are going to be providing y’all with some names of books and their authors to get you through the week. Rest assured, we must have gone through the books we are recommending.
