Are you worried about you privacy?

Hello,

As we all now, on these days is hard to know where our information is being saved when we use the internet. NSA, PRISM and many other institutions or programs are designed to collect information about the users on the internet and save this information for later “actions”.

If you to send private information by email and you don’t want to anyone else can read it or access to it maybe is time to begin to think about encryption.

What encryption does is to transform the text you write into complex and unreadable lines of text at the moment you send the email. On the other end, the receiver is asked for a certificate or password in order to decrypt the message and make it readable again.

There are platforms that claims to send encrypted messages (end-to-end encryption) like WhatsApp and other, but in reality what they do is encrypt the message that the user write but when this message reach the server it is decrypted and encrypted again before sending the message to the receiver. Thats mean there are not end-to-end encrypted.

There is a very good encryption service for emails, which is a real end-to-end encryption system called ProtonMail.

You can read more about ProtonMail here.  and in theirs homepage

Be safe on the internet…

 

Tired of Windows 10 defaults apps?

Hi,

All of you that have Windows 10 may noted that the Microsoft’s OS comes with a number of defaults apps like BingSport, Weather, Xbox and many more. And you may also noted that when you uninstall these apps, they comes back when you run windows update which is annoying.

There is a script that can uninstall these apps. Actually there are a few number of scripts that can improve Windows 10 by for instance making windows update more friendly, fix privacy settings and a long etcetera.

You can download the zip file from here

It is important that you read the Read me file  because there are three previous steps you have to do before running the scrips.

Also is a good idea to read what every script does before you run it. The simple way is open it with notepad and read the short description at the beginning of each script.

 

Uninstalling .Net Core on Mac

If you own a Mac computer and decided to test the new .net Core framework keep in mind that you will need a script to do the uninstallation. This is the script:


#!/usr/bin/env bash
#
# Copyright (c) .NET Foundation and contributors. All rights reserved.
# Licensed under the MIT license. See LICENSE file in the project root for full license information.
#

DIR=”$( cd “$( dirname “${BASH_SOURCE[0]}” )” && pwd )”

current_user=$(whoami)
if [ $current_user != “root” ]; then
echo “$(basename “$0″) uninstallation script requires superuser privileges to run”
exit 1
fi

# this is the common suffix for all the dotnet pkgs
dotnet_pkg_name_suffix=”com.microsoft.dotnet”
dotnet_install_root=”/usr/local/share/dotnet”
dotnet_path_file=”/etc/paths.d/dotnet”

remove_dotnet_pkgs(){
installed_pkgs=($(pkgutil –pkgs | grep $dotnet_pkg_name_suffix))

for i in “${installed_pkgs[@]}”
do
echo “Removing dotnet component – \”$i\””
pkgutil –force –forget “$i”
done
}

remove_dotnet_pkgs
[ “$?” -ne 0 ] && echo “Failed to remove dotnet packages.” && exit 1

echo “Deleting install root – $dotnet_install_root”
rm -r “$dotnet_install_root”
rm “$dotnet_path_file”

echo “dotnet packages removal succeeded.”
exit 0

Meet ‘ECOSIA’ – The Tree Planter Search Engine

Now a days everyone uses a search engine. The most popular without any doubt is Google.

However there are alternatives and I am intending to present you one of them: the Ecosia search engine.
“Ecosia is the search engine that plants trees with its ad revenue. Get the free browser extension and use Ecosia every time you search.”

They use their revenues to plant trees. Untill now, they have managed to plant over 5,5 million trees, with a new tree planted each 11 seconds. Their goal is to reach one billion planted trees by 2020. Ecosia has 2 million active users.
