An easy-to-use app to filter out the ads, data and tracking mechanisms from your mobile

While I can totally see the need for developers to have ads, data and tracking mechanisms built into their websites, it doesn't make it any less a pain in the ass for the viewer. Not only could there be a possible breach of security involved but unwanted ads and data uses up precious bandwidth and slows down your speed of service. It's even worse when viewing on your mobile because the screen is smaller and bandwidth is even more limited. The aptly named Peace of Mind is a privacy and security app for iOS that is an easy way to block ads, media data and tracking mechanisms and keep the ...  More

Keep an eye on your kids' online activities without having to look over their shoulder

There's little doubt that the iPad and tablets in general have completely changed the way we think and work these days. For kids, in particular, they have opened up a whole new world of entertainment and education, the like of which we've never seen before. There are apps being put on the market now that would never have seen the light of day if there wasn't a tablet to view them on. Typically though, there's a downside to most new things. For a start, how do we know that the things our children are viewing on the Internet are safe and appropriate without looking over their shoulder every ...  More

Encrypt all of your data and keep it away from prying eyes

You might have seen a review that FeedMyApp ran recently for an iOS app called Notes Lock. It secured all your notes, recorded conversations and your private thoughts so that prying eyes wouldn't be able to get to them. Folder Lock Advanced is kind of an expanded version of that for both Android, iPhone and iPad that takes security one step further to protect and lock your personal folders, files, photos, apps, videos, notes, wallet and any other kind of data that you need to keep secure. This release is actually an updated and far more advanced version of the award winning desktop ...  More

Keep your notes, lectures and private thoughts locked away from prying eyes

A few years ago I had a friend who had been laboriously plotting a story that he hoped might be taken up as a tv series. He kept it tucked away on his mobile device and worked on it diligently for over a year. I contacted him again a couple of years later after I'd seen the pilot episode of a new series because the plot line bore a remarkable resemblance to his own. He told me that he'd seen the episode and put two and two together and worked out that, while he'd been at a writers’ workshop, he'd left his device unattended and a fellow writer had been able to access all of his notes. The ...  More

Secure and manage all your social networks from one place and with one password

If there's one word that comes to mind regarding our online activities over the last few years it is security. Not only are there people from as far as the Ukraine and China trying to access our private information but there's also been plenty of occasions when friends, family and co workers have felt the compulsion to see what we are up to on our devices. I've lost count of the number of times that I've seen an embarrassing post on a friend's social media account which has obviously been entered by someone other than themselves when they have left their mobile unattended. What's more, we ...  More

Free cloud collaboration that is so secure that even Governments use it

When I first spoke about the concept of cloud computing to a friend in the business in England a few years ago, we both knew that there was one thing that stood in the way - security. While it was possible to offer cheap and reliable cloud collaboration, how could customers be 100% sure that their private and confidential data was 100% secure? Well, this could well be the answer to those sceptics. Ribose is a free, cloud-based, social collaboration app that connects you with friends, family, fellow-workers and communities whilst adhering to the highest possible security levels to ensure ...  More

Beat Big Brother, become anonymous online and access restricted websites

We hear a lot of talk about websites like Facebook not taking our privacy seriously enough these days. The fact is, you really have to take things into your own hands if you want to protect yourself online. I guess the golden rules are...don't post stuff that you don't want others to see and always check your settings on a regular basis. The fact is, George Orwell was right - Big Brother is watching us. Whether they are taking notice of what we are doing is another matter but, given the Edward Snowden and NSA revelations of the last year or so, theres no doubt. What's more, depending on ...  More

Take selfies of the thieves that use your phone and view them on Dropbox

According to recent figures, crime in NYC was actually down last year - except in one area. The theft of iDevices represented close to 30% of all crime to the extent that the NYPD now has its own department that only deals with the theft of Apple products. Many have argued that it would be simple for manufacturers to install a simple 'cut-off' switch that would render the device inoperable if it was established that it has been stolen but there has been much navel gazing when it comes to actually doing anything about it. Apple and their cohorts claim that it could leave devices wide open ...  More
