Twitbird is a Popular app and it is a super-fast Twitter client loaded with unique features that’s a joy to use on iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. It includes many of the cool features that you’ve seen separately in other Twitter clients but rarely together. From timeline to map search and four beautiful themes, Twitbird offers advanced Twitter functionality beyond your expectations. And with its logical and intuitive interface. If you are traveling to China, then you can’t access Twitbird from there, and it will create a huge problem for you to communicate with the people who know. But there comes a question why is Twitbird banned in China?
The Chinese government has banned a number of well-known social media platforms, that are elsewhere ruling with their connectivity capability. A number of applications and entertainment sites have been blocked as well so that the country does not have to compromise with the security. Basically, the Chinese Government has taken this extreme step to protect the country from terrorism and safeguard the citizens from hacking or anything that concerns cybercrime. There are a number of features that the social media has benefitted the people with. So, while the rest of the world gets the advantages of social media and are able to connect with people across the globe, the Chinese are under the strict scrutiny of the Great Firewall. Though China has social media platforms that are designed in the same manner as twitter or Facebook or Instagram, they are completely different from the others are. Read the rest of this post »

Bed Rabbit is a suspected variant of the recent ‘Petya’ ransomware that sparked disruption across Europe, according to a number of experts, including the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team. This Ramsomware require victim download a fake Adobe Flash installer from infected websites and manually launch the .exe file, thus infecting themselves. So, it is not easy unlock the infected computer. In order to decrypt the files and lock the whole screen, computer user is asked to pay a fine about 0.05 bitcoin, roughly equivalent to $280. Also, this virus infection will create a “.txt” “.exe” and “.gif” files in the computer and tell the victim how to process the payment. However, some people who have already done the payment, their files are still encrypted. So, we suggest the victims not to pay the so-call fine under no circumstance. If won’t decrypt the files for the victims, it just focus the victims to pay more.
There are many ways for cyber hackers to spread this warning virus to innocent people. It is comes to you unconsciously when you click some links on the website, opened unknown e-mail attachments, or download unknown “free” software and so on. Freeware download websites encourage users to use small download programs (called ‘installers’, ‘download managers’, ‘download tools’, ‘download clients’, and so on) to download the chosen software. Download apps supposedly ease the download process. However, they offer installation of third party applications with the chosen software. When you download some documents or apps which you are interesting, this virus program will also be attached to download, and run as document application. There are also set up that contain the hijacker and users are directed to those sites from links within email messages that are sent out. Some of the emails will not contain the link, but they will instead have an attachment that they will be asked to click on. Once the virus goes into the target device, it may be trying to hijack your android and lock your apps began to generate advertising revenue. We strongly recommend that you don’t do that above behavior, because they are likely to be false. No matter whatever how you get the virus, it is necessary to remove it from your computer before the arrival of more dangerous. Read the rest of this post »

My computer is frozen on a fake tech support page. It blocks me from logging in the computer. I can’t get to the desktop. I learn that if i go into Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking. I will be able to fix the problem. That is really a good news. But how can i get in Safe Mode with Networking in Windows 10?
Safe Mode is a diagnostic mode of a computer operating system which makes it easier for users to troubleshoot various problems, for instance deleting a violent malware. Under Safe Mode, only such basic startup programs as drivers for keyboard, mouse and the OS itself. Safe Mode with Networking is just the basic Safe Mode where you can access the Internet. “Safe Mode”, “Safe Mode with Networking” and “Safe Mode with Command Prompt” are usually arranged in the same list on the Windows System. If you are first time to use Windows 10 and try to enter into Safe Mode of the system, you will find that the “old methods” of pressing the key of F8 or combination of Shift + F8 keys on the keyboard no longer lead into the list of various Safe Mode at all. The windows 10 system starts up faster than previous systems. This is why the “old methods” stop working. There still exists the Safe Mode list in Windows 10. But it is needed to follow different instructions to boot your computer running windows 10 into Safe Mode with Networking or other options of Safe Mode. In this article, we will discuss two of the most used ways to enter into the option list of Safe Mode. Read the rest of this post »

A new US broadband privacy legislation was signed by president Donald Trump not long ago. It is said it is a win for the ISP giants taking into consideration the fact online marketing is a quite profitable industry. While it also brings about much criticism from the privacy advocates. Many internet users are worrying that their personal information may be taken advantage improperly. So how to protect your online privacy after the new US internet privacy legislation is signed?
Not long ago, U.S. President Donald Trump signed a repeal of the internet privacy regulations under the Obama administration urging ISPs to work harder to enhance the protection of the customers’ privacy than websites such as Facebook, Twitter and Google.
The bill to repeal the FCC regulations is narrowly passed by Republicans on a 215-205 vote. All 215 “yes” votes were from Republicans, while 15 republicans joining all Democrats present voted against the repeal.
The signing is said to be a victory for internet service providers like Comcast corp, Verizon Communications Inc. and AT&T Inc while a blow to privacy advocates. The repeal is followed by much criticism by privacy advocates. Some Senate Democrats argue that most Americans “believe that their private information should be just that.”
Online marketing is an industry that can make big money. Facebook is believed one of the kings of the quite profitable industry. It is no surprise the giant telecom agencies desires a share of the pie.

Can’t access Hulu in China? Some videos on Hulu are not available for you while your friends can watch them freely in other countries? What’s going on there? How to fix the problem and access Hulu in China? Read this article carefully and you will get the answer.
China is one of those countries which are leading the technological top chart boards right now if one must say. It has a very tight security program, and it leaves no stone unturned to make sure that they indeed have the strictest security program both online and offline in the whole world. The GFW or the Great Firewall of China is the firewall they use to protect the internet in China, and it is no wonder that this Great Firewall of China also has blocked most of the websites and search engines and also apps and other web services in China.
In the same way, Hulu is also a blocked website in mainland China in 2010. Hulu is a very famous streaming website in The United States of America, among other streaming websites in the country like Amazon Prime and Netflix. But one always wants to access all these websites because these kinds of streaming websites have a lot of shows streaming, and some of them are the channel’s original shows which are not found anywhere else on the T.V. or on other streaming websites. The most interesting thing is that users can reedit the video on Hulu and post it on social networking sites. It is a pity that Hulu has been blocked in China. Fortunately, there is still a way to access Hulu in China. Read the rest of this post »

Hi. I’ve just tried to open a bunch of Vimeo links and they take ages to load before coming up with the “connection to the server was reset while the page was loading” warning message. I really hope this doesn’t mean Vimeo is blocked out here in China now. I love Vimeo so much, but I have to work for months here. Is Vimeo blocked in China? Do you know how to use Vimeo in China 2017?
What is Vimeo and what you can with it? Can you use Vimeo in China? Vimeo is an American video-sharing website where you can upload, share and watch useful or interesting video freely. Lots of videos from various countries are available for you there. Bad news is that it is not available for Chinese users. Just the same as many other video-sharing websites, Vimeo is blocked in Mainland China due to the famous Great Firewall. It is strong enough to stop users in China to use it normally. However, it is still possible to use Vimeo in China. What you have to do is to use a VPN service to bypass the Great Firewall of China. Read the rest of this post »

Hello. Need your suggestions. I came to China last week and found that I couldn’t use Dropbox. My friends and I always used it to store and share important files. I can’t load it here. At first, I thought it’s my network issue and later found that others can’t use it either in China. I need to access my files for work. It’s emergency. Please tell me how to use Dropbox in China 2017. Thank you.
Dropbox is a personal cloud storage service (sometimes referred to as an online backup service) that is frequently used for file sharing and collaboration. Anything you add to Dropbox will automatically show up on all your computers, phones and even the Dropbox website — so you can access your stuff from anywhere. You can use it on computer, iPhone, iPad, Android, and BlackBerry devices. It is very convenient for users. However, Dropbox is not available in China due to the Great Firewall. Does that mean it is impossible to use Dropbox in China? No. You still can use Dropbox in China with the help of a VPN. A VPN will help bypass the Great Firewall so that you can use Dropbox in China anytime. Read the rest of this post »

I had the Federaljustice@australiamail.com thing on my iPhone for about 2 hours. And the “cannot open page” box was constantly popping up on my phone. And I am afraid that it’s going to get my personal information. I can’t use my Safari now. I realize that it is a scam virus. What should I do? How do I Unblock my Safari from Federaljustice@australiamail.com Scam Virus? How do I make my Safari operate again? Please help!
Federaljustice@australiamail.com Scam Virus is a malicious ransomware which is created by the cyber criminals with its aims of tricking money of innocent device’s users from their pocket. This scam virus mainly attacks the IOS device including iPhone, iPad, and iPod. Cyber scammers used to attach this malicious ransomware to the third party application. So, while you are online, you may get the Federaljustice@australiamail.com Scam Virus hacked into your device when you visit a phishing site, open a junk e-mail attachment, click on an unknown link or download an application from an unsafe source, especially after you jailbreak your device. Once this virus gets into your device, it will block your Safari immediately and keep you away from using your Safari again. It is so cunning, isn’t it? Anyway, if your Safari gets blocked out by this vicious ransomware, you should take action to get rid of it as soon as possible.

What should I do? My new Dell laptop got detected HEUR.Trojan.Script.Generic virus which was reported by my Kaspersky security/protection. Tons of pop-ups and ads were displaying on my screen to keep me away from doing anything normally on the infected computer. Threats warnings were popping up frequently. How do I get rid of this malicious Trojan virus? Please help!
“My Kaspersky security/protection is what alerted me of the potential infection. It appears as though my laptop computer has potentially been infected with the HEUR.Trojan.Script.Generic virus…..I don’t feel confident enough about my knowledge of computers. I attempt to do the manual removal process by myself… WHAT SHOULD I DO? CAN YOU HELP? THANKS!”
HEUR.Trojan.Script.Generic virus is defined as a nasty Trojan which is a serious computer virus created by cyber criminals with new technology. This malicious virus has the ability to make the infected computer in a mess and be infringed by other viruses easily. Once this virus gets into the target computer, it is capable of taking control of the whole computer activities and then conducting bad performance. In general, it may sneak into the target computer smoothly by making full use of security vulnerabilities and computer user’s reckless behaviors. For example, the following action may attract the attack of this Trojan horse virus to your computer: clicking on some pop-up ads from malicious websites, downloading unsafe freeware applications from unauthorized websites, clicking on unknown links and opening spam email attachments.
