Tumblr, social network of humor, creativity and trends

Tumblr is a particular type of social network that is based on small blogs and where we can publish a lot of different formats. Unlike regular blogs, posts here are always short and allow other users to interact without any limitations.

It is then defined as a social network of microblogging, where we can publish texts, images, gifs, videos, links, quotes or audio in our space. Other users can comment on our publication, republish it on their own Tumblrblog, hit “like” or share it on other social networks.


Now with Gmail we can send more secure emails that even self-destruct

Google has recently updated one of its well-known star services, the Gmail email manager on the Internet. It is possible that on the dates when we publish this article it still will not have been massively extended to all users, but it will be enough to open the configuration menu to activate it and enjoy the new features it includes.

If we have not yet activated this new version of Gmail, we just have to open it and click on ‘Test the new Gmail’ that we will see at the top of the drop-down list when we click on the sprocket icon.


If you use Twitter, reinforce the security of your account right now

Twitter has recently launched a warning to all users encouraging us to change our account password because they have detected a security problem.

In this article from their official blog, they explain in some detail what has happened to them. In short, what has happened is that they have discovered by themselves that their users’ passwords were stored somewhere accessible to the members of the company without any protection.

Si usas Twitter refuerza ya mismo la seguridad de tu cuenta

A secure system is what keeps our passwords encrypted, i.e., transformed into a random series of numbers and letters that we cannot interpret. Only advanced computer decryption techniques allow us to compare those stored passwords with those we write, but no one can read them.


Sugar Daddy, Sugar Baby and other terms of “paid” online dating

These expressions in English are common for those who experiment through social networks aimed at picking up someone. They are used in online platforms, usually through mobile applications, aimed at meeting people and making dates. But they are specific to a certain type of relationship, those that are established in order to receive something in return.

Yes, it is what it seems, or not, depending on who argues. But in essence it is to offer an escort service to another person (the limit must be agreed in advance) expecting to receive something in return, usually money, but not necessarily.


Become aware

In this new post we want to introduce you to the new awareness web site concienciaTBut we could not tell you about this web of awareness, without first introducing you to who is behind that web. This is an initiative of CSIRT-CV(Center for Response to incidents and cybersecurity of the Valencian Community) which, as it appears on its website, “is born as a commitment of the Generalitat Valenciana to security in the network” offering its services to citizens, SMEs and Public Administrations of the Valencian Community.

Given the objective of training and raising awareness of the site, from our blog we want to make public concienciaT so that you have another reference when you want to look for any information related to cybersecurity.


ConcienciaT is divided into several sections. Upon entering the new portal the publication of two videos draws attention, which make us see the risks to which we can expose our data when we surf the Internet. We recommend that you see them because they are very instructive and fun.


WhatsApp limits its use to children under 16, but …

As we update our WhatsApp application during these days, we will all be getting a notice about the new conditions that we must accept. The biggest novelty that we will find is the obligation to declare that we are at least 16 years old. It is an essential requirement to continue using the service.

Whatsapp limita su uso a menores de 16 años, pero…

This change in the conditions of use is due to the imminent entry into force of the new General Regulation of Data Protection (RGPD) of the European Union (EU), which will take effect from May 25 on.


May 2 is the World Day of Bullying Prevention

Different non-governmental organizations and non-profit associations have managed to establish May 2 as the World Day of Bullying Prevention. It emerged in 2013 as an initiative of the organization Bullying sin fronteras in Argentina and has been celebrated since then. Some countries have formalized the commemoration of this day, as is the case of Spain, through this institutional declaration by the Senate.

The problem of bullying has worsened in recent years in an exceptional way. The expansion in the use of connected mobile phones and social networks among children and young people has made the problem considerably worse.

Defender Tips to keep Windows 10 safer. Check Windows Defender

Windows 10 is the most used operating system in the world to make our computers run. That is the main reason why it becomes a constant target for most cyber-attacks and will remain so while its hegemony lasts.

Microsoft has done a good job with the protection systems with which this version of its Windows has been provided. However, it is the user himself who has the ultimate responsibility that the system works under the safe guidelines with which it is defined and for that, he must take care to keep it as up-to-date and “sound” as possible.

Revisa Windows Defender

Let’s review the main security features of our Windows 10 and check that everything works as it should. In general, it will be sufficient for us to periodically look at the information provided by the Windows Defender security program.


Steps to eliminate information in the search engines

Today again we publish a post written by one of our readers. It is the second one that he sends us to share it in our blog. Remember that our readers can make use of the blog sectionWrite your post and we will publish it for you“.
We hope you find it useful.
We thank once again the “Independent Researcher” for his collaboration with this blog :)

 In this article we will try to explain how we can eliminate information published on the Internet over the years, some with permission and other without it. To begin with, I would like to say that what is presented here is intended for the countries of the European Union (EU) where a law of Data Protection governs more extensive than elsewhere in the world, especially the so-called ‘Right to Oblivion’. However, it should be noted that in some cases you can also request deletion when the website is hosted outside the EU. Finally, I will explain that there are websites that until the date of publication of this article it is not possible to contact the administrator of the page since the email address is protected thanks to applications that have that function.
