How to Browse Privately with Android Apps

Published

on

Privacy is a big concern on the internet. Every day it seems that more and more reports of data breaches are happening at large technology companies. In this climate, you should make sure you’re doing as much as you can to control personal data collection by maintaining privacy on your devices. There are a variety of ways from DNS apps to VPN that you can use to browse apps on your Android device, to protect your data from falling into unknown hands.

Why is Private Browsing Important?

Have you ever noticed when you’re on a specific site, you’ll see advertising for another site or brand you were browsing in the past? And that the site you are currently in has nothing to do with that advertisement? This “ad stalking” happens because websites can track you while you’re on the internet. Tech giants, data brokers, and online advertisers employ a variety of techniques to keep tabs on what you do and gather information. They can drop a cookie in your browser, run a script behind the scenes, track share button usage, location, and device logging, and even fingerprint your device so it can track your history also if you delete the app from your device! Big brother is real!

Every time your device connects to the internet, you become vulnerable to snooping and data collection. Everyone from your Internet Service Provider (ISP), every website you visit, and every app on your phone can access nearly everything you do on your device. The majority of these services are happening outside of what you can see. If you’re not taking the proper precautions to protect your browser history and sites, you visit, to credit card numbers, email addresses, and passwords.

Private Browsing Options for Android Apps

Fortunately, you have a few different options to up the privacy on your Android device to keep your habits and history private and protect yourself from unwanted data trackers. Depending on which level you want to maintain your privacy – browser, ISP, or all data, including location – you can find an Android app for that. 

Browser Privacy Settings

There are a variety of browsers out there that provide a level of privacy that may be enough for your purposes. You may be familiar with the term “incognito browsing.” This feature is a function you’ll find on all major browser applications. When using a browser in incognito mode, the browser does not keep cookies or your history. However, browsing in incognito mode doesn’t stop your ISP or anyone else connected to the internet from accessing your data. Any tracking happening outside your browser app will also continue to happen. The best use for protecting privacy with a browsers app’s incognito mode function is for situations where you’re using a shared device. In these instances, your browsing history disappears after you closeout of the application, so the next person using the device can’t access it.

DNS Changer

The next option for privately browsing is using a DNS app. DNS stands for “domain name system” and is the phonebook for the internet. Everything on the internet has a specific address called an IP address, or “phone number.” This IP address translates into a domain name, like google.com, or which is the “person” you’re trying to locate in the phone book. The DNS functions as a data table that converts the text name into the IP address so it can figure out which website you’re trying to get to.

A DNS changer app protects the domain name that you enter into your browser by changing it to something non-readable to the outside world. It protects your ISP from tracking which sites you are trying to visit. A DNS changer is excellent for situations where you encounter ISP censorship and geo-blocking at the domain level. If your ISP blocks access to websites like YouTube, you’ll be able to bypass that block with a DNS changer app.

It’s important to note that a DNS changer does NOT hide your IP address. It can only protect the domains of the websites that you are calling from your device. Your IP, location data, and other personal information can still be mined and accessed by apps and sites you visit. If your ISP has blocked a site from access using the IP address of that site, a DNS changer will not work to bypass it.

VPN

A VPN is a virtual private network and is the highest version of privacy you can take on your devices. When you subscribe to a VPN service, you connect to a server that changes your IP address to the outside world. By using an “anonymous” IP address, it blocks access to your location, personal information, and browsing behaviors. Anyone trying to hack in won’t be able to get further than the VPN server. It also encrypts all data transferred between you and the VPN. VPNs are great for protecting your privacy, but because all your data transferred is encrypted, you can experience buffering and poor streaming conditions.

Choosing the best method of privately browsing on your Android device comes down to what you’re concerned about protecting and your browsing habits. If you want to block your ISP from censoring or tracking your browsing history, a DNS changer app is the way to go. However, if you’re trying to access geo-restricted content and want to block access to your location, a VPN is the best option for you. No matter which way you decide to go, it’s essential to be aware of how vulnerable your personal information is online, and take measures to remain vigilant.

I started a series about the effects of 5G and Tinnitus. Then I discussed electromagnetic radio frequency radiation (EMRFR) and Skin Tightening and more on it all. However, what good is discussing the subject unless there are solutions? Here are some products that can help stop the madness.

One of the best company’s out there is DefenderShield® with phone cases to shield, Radiation Protection Shielding Scarfs, EMF & 5G Radiation Shielding Blankets, EMF Radiation-Free Earbuds Air Tube Stereo Headphones and so much more.

At Lambs get the world’s first Radiation-Proof Apparel that block 99% of EMF.

From the inception Aires’s main goal was to find a way to minimize harm to the body without impacting the capability of electronic devices. Rather than block or absorb radiation, they wanted to create a surrounding area free from the harm of EMF. There products use holographic technology.You can use their devices in a multitude of ways.

The C-band 5G Interference Solution helps with the onset of 5G. With a  need for specialized products to block or prevent interference from 5G base stations in proximity of C-band ground terminals. Norsat’s solution comprises of interference suppression C-Band LNBs and specialized bandpass filters for effective satellite communication. Traditionally, C-band is used for satellite services, radar, and microwave links; however, with the terrestrial wireless industry’s planned introduction of new mobile phone networks such as LTE, Wi-Max, and 5G, these C-band frequencies will now be shared amongst a wider range of services. The interference signals are powerful enough to saturate the sensitive C-band satellite receiving systems, causing a potential for total loss of service.

There are many products out there if you do your research that help combat this problem. It is expensive, but isn’t your health worth it? Preventive medicine and preventive care in the long run is worth your time and effort.

Let’s Talk About 5G: EMRFR

Published

on

I started this series yesterday about the effects of 5G and Tinnitus. Today we are going to discuss electromagnetic radio frequency radiation (EMRFR)

With the rapid development of technical achievements, the consequences of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) have become a new pollution for modern civilization. In many studies the biological interaction of EMR with human organs, especially the brain have shown that the nervous system is highly sensitive to EMR. The neurobiological effects of EMR, on the metabolism and transport of neurotransmitters plays a critical roles in cognitive and emotional behavior.

EMR produces various electromagnetic waves of different frequencies, resulting in the increasing EMR intensity in human living spaces. The high-frequency waves such as cosmic, gamma and X-rays, have enough energy to cause ionization. Non-ionizing electromagnetic waves, including ultraviolet, visible region, infrared, microwave, and radio waves are frequently used in daily life, especially radio frequency electromagnetic fields for communications, and extremely low-frequency EMFs generated by electricity. RF is also commonly referred to as microwave radiation. The impact of EMR on human health has also attracted attention, and the modulation of brain functional connectivity was observed in human body.

The effects of EMR on body systems depends on the frequency, intensity and power of radiation. Numerous studies have shown that the nervous system is targeted organ system sensitive to EMR. Exposure to electromagnetic fields can cause structural and functional changes in the nervous system. Our dopamine level is rendered inactivated, our neurons can no longer communicate with each other, so disorders, such as depression, schizophrenia, Alzheimer disease, and Parkinson disease are heightened.

Possible symptoms related to EMFs include:

  • headache
  • sleep disturbances, including insomnia
  • depression and depressive symptoms
  • tiredness and fatigue
  • dysesthesia (a painful, often itchy sensation)
  • lack of concentration
  • changes in memory
  • dizziness
  • irritability
  • loss of appetite and weight loss
  • restlessness and anxiety
  • nausea
  • skin burning and tingling
  • tremor
  • memory loss

EMF Exposures all of which are “regulated by our government:

  • Electronic devices.
  • Cell phones.
  • Televisions and computer screens
  • Smart meters.
  • Power lines.
  • Medical use. Many medical devices and procedures use ionizing radiation to diagnose and treat conditions and disease. I just want to point out that you wear a shield to get a x-ray and you can not do them if pregnant.
  • Nuclear power.

Let’s Talk About 5G: Tinnitus

Published

on

I am about to start a series of articles on the effects of 5G and what we are not being told. Somehow we have allowed something that is so insidious into our lives, embracing it wholeheartedly, as it is slowly killing us inch by inch. We need to be able to see the research that is being hidden from our eyes and our computer screens. Being armed is being for warned.

Right now more than 50 million people have  Tinnitus now in the US. Children at this point also have tinnitus, which may improve or even go away over time, but in most cases, the symptoms worsens with time. When tinnitus lasts for three months or longer, it is considered chronic. Tinnitus means that you hear phantom sounds in one ear, or in both ears, and in your head. These sounds may ring, buzz, roar, whistle, hum, click, hiss, or squeal. They may be soft, loud, low or high pitched. The sounds may come and go or be present all the time. Sometimes, moving your head, neck, or eyes, or touching certain parts of your body may produce tinnitus symptoms or temporarily change the quality of the perceived sound.

Tinnitus has increased over the past decade. Many are saying that the increase use of cell phones has exposed the peripheral auditory pathways to a higher dose of electromagnetic radio frequency radiation (EMRFR). Some tinnitus patients report that the abusive use of mobiles, especially when repeated in the same ear, worsen ipsilateral tinnitus. Some individuals are more sensitive to electromagnetic exposure (electrosensitivity), and thus, present earlier symptoms. There seems to be a common pathophysiology between this electrosensitivity and tinnitus.

It has been shown that slow-frequency radiation (ELF) in short-term exposure has caused headache, fatigue, tinnitus, concentration problems, depression, memory loss, skin irritation, sleep disorders, nausea, cardiovascular effects, chest pain, immunity, and hormonal disorders in humans, whereas long-term exposure to EMR leads to the development of cancer. The EMR exposure induces reactive oxygen species and changes the fidelity of genes involved in signal transduction, cytoskeleton formation, and cellular metabolism.

Here are research articles that prove this fact.

3 Tech Innovations Elevating Our Digital Entertainment Experience

Published

on

By

From a silent film that captivated audiences on silver screens to live broadcasts connecting us across continents, technology has been the maestro orchestrating the symphony of entertainment evolution. Consider the advent of colour television, which paints our viewing experiences with a vibrant palette, or streaming services like Netflix, Disney Prime, and Hulu. Such trends, amongst several others, are indeed groundbreaking tech innovations that brought a sea change to traditional amusement landscapes. As we stand on the cusp of another transformation, this article sheds light on the innovations amplifying our digital experiences.

Join us as we delve into the multifaceted world of tomorrow’s entertainment.

Augmented Reality (AR) & Virtual Reality (VR)

Augmented Reality introduces digital elements into our tangible world, enhancing visual and auditory sensations. Think of it like those Snapchat filters that superimpose dog ears or dancing animations onto a user’s face but in a more sophisticated manner. On the other hand, Virtual Reality transports users into fabricated realms, allowing for a total escape. It’s as if you put on a headset and instantly find yourself standing atop a mountain or wandering in a mythical land, fully immersed in that setting.

Pokemon Go’s rise demonstrated the potential of blending virtual characters with real-world locations, turning neighbourhoods into arenas of discovery. While capturing creatures is one facet, the real magic lies in changing our perspective of our environment. On the immersive spectrum’s other end, Oculus Rift provides participants with unprecedented experiences, from epic quests to captivating tales.

So, what places AR and VR at the forefront of entertainment’s technical evolution? They bridge the gap between digital narratives and human perception. Everyday settings become dynamic stages with Augmented Reality, transforming a stroll in the park into a quest or adventure. Meanwhile, Virtual Reality crafts doorways to spaces once restricted to dreams – places and activities like taking a walk on the moon or diving deep under the sea without leaving your couch. That’s the charm of VR. Their inherent immersive quality heightens engagement and ensures a deep emotional resonance that lingers.

Peering into the future, the horizon for these platforms in leisure is pretty expansive. Picture theatre performances enhanced with holographic sequences or narratives where observers evolve into protagonists. As tools grow and innovators push boundaries, they promise profound shifts in entertainment dynamics.

Artificial Intelligence’s  (AI) Multifaceted Role in Personalizing Digital Experiences

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are the architects behind the curtain of digital content recommendation, meticulously crafting user experiences across various platforms. Services like Netflix and Spotify harness these technologies to analyse user behaviour, capturing nuances in preferences to suggest films or music, thereby creating a bespoke entertainment journey for each user.

In the online casino world, AI suggestions can adapt to each player’s actions, the games they frequent, the stakes they wager, as well as other in-game decisions. As time passes, akin to an expert dealer familiar with patrons’ preferences, the system refines its recommendations, ensuring the games it proposes align with the player’s past choices and patterns, thus advancing the online casino experience to unprecedented personalised levels.

This personalisation gets further elevated when AI converges with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, especially in live casinos. Much like AI curates a movie or a music playlist for you, it enhances the gaming experience, with OCR acting as its visual conduit. Together, they forge a dynamic gaming environment where players can enjoy live dealer titles or play keno online, with suggestions that adapt to their in-game decisions. OCR technology diligently captures each shuffle and spin, converting these physical actions into digital data.

Digital Wallets

With the digital landscape evolving swiftly, the need for user-centric technologies has never been more precise. Digital wallets, in particular, are changing the dynamics of online transactions.

They act as virtual storehouses crafted to consolidate an individual’s financial details, signifying the forthcoming phase in the evolution of monetary exchanges. Through them, users can swiftly manage, transfer, and receive funds without the traditional hindrances of physical currency or banking delays.

Diving deeper into their world, let’s explore some of their pivotal features and impacts:

  • Unmatched Convenience:
    • Eliminates manual card input.
    • Streamlines purchasing and subscription processes.
    • Transforms minutes-long tasks into instant actions.
  • Robust Security:
