Recently, we talked about the fact that in Google Play, despite the numerous protection algorithms, there are not so few applications containing malicious code . The Secure-D platform drew attention to one of these . Secure-D's main focus is mobile transactions and ad fraud, and the platform's latest report focuses on VivaVideo, a video editing program.
The VivaVideo program is distributed free of charge, contains in- app purchases and has a good rating on Google Play (4.4) and more than 100 million downloads, it would seem that everything is fine with a reputation. What is in practice? After analyzing the code, the platform specialists found out that the video editor often initiates a premium subscription without the user's knowledge and shows the so-called “invisible” ads. That is, money is secretly debited from the user, and advertisers pay a commission for displaying advertisements that are not actually displayed. Another not dangerous, but alarming factor was the unreasonably large number of permissions that the program requires for its work.
Secure-D algorithms have been able to track and block more than 20 million "suspicious mobile transactions" attributed to VivaVideo since 2019, thus saving the program's users about $ 27 million. An impressive amount, whatever one may say.
According to the head of Secure-D Geoffrey Cleaves, all fraudulent operations have been seen in older versions of the program, which before newer versions are either clean or better hide their fraudulent activities. We strongly recommend readers to use other software for video editing, but if you are so strongly attached to VivaVideo, then at least use the current versions of the application (but it is better to uninstall).

The game Pokémon GO at one time produced the effect of an exploding bomb, literally everyone played it, specialized bracelets came out, and it is difficult to list the amount of merchandise for the game. Despite the fact that Pokemon GO still brings enormous profits to the authors (according to SensorTower estimates, and in 2020 the profit was more than $ 1 billion), they are not going to stop there.
Niantic - it was they who created Pokemon GO - acquired the startup 6D.ai at the end of March 2020. This small company develops some very specific software: augmented reality maps.
How it works? For example, you bring your smartphone to a regular paper map and you see three-dimensional objects on the screen of your device. Or you can “wander” through the streets of a city far from you, looking only at the screen of your smartphone. If playing Pokémon GO you filmed the landmarks of your city, be aware that you have already made a feasible contribution to the development of this project.
Its ultimate goal is to create a constantly updated three-dimensional map of the world, and you will receive not just a chain of scanned images, but a full-fledged map, where the sky, water, and individual architectural objects will be distinguished.
By the way, 6D.ai is not the only startup that has become part of Niantic. The company also bought out other augmented reality projects such as Escher Reality and Matrix Mill.

Google has presented to the public its completely new Task Mate application, in which any user can complete simple tasks and receive monetary rewards for it.
These tasks will be provided, according to Google, “by business around the world”, that is, not by the search engine itself, but by third-party companies. The tasks that users will have to complete are, for example, photographing the area, recording phrases or translating from English into their native language. All tasks are divided into "field" ones, for which you really have to go somewhere and those that can be done without leaving home. Also, the user will see statistics in real time: how many tasks he completed and how much money he earned.
The app is now in beta testing in India and Kenya and it is not very clear when it will reach Runet, if at all. However, if you have a desire to earn some money in this way, you can pay attention to Yandex.Toloka, which is similar in nature. Only without illusions: in order to earn something substantial, you have to really strain, the money itself will not flow into your pocket, this rule applies to both described applications.

TikTok is taking a major action to cater for its community. Although this time around it targets photosensitive people who may experience epileptic seizures from interacting with contents on its platform.
According to TikTok, "Over the past few months, our team met with epilepsy advocates who shared feedback on how we can improve our platform. Based on these conversations, we launched a feature a few months ago that warns creators when they produce videos with effects that could trigger photosensitive epilepsy. In the coming weeks, we'll be introducing another important accessibility feature to protect people from photosensitive content. With this new feature, viewers who come across a photosensitive video will receive a notification inviting them to "Skip All" future photosensitive videos.
As explained by TikTok, this addition will tag contents, warning users of a potential problem ahead. Users can choose to skip the specific content or all contents carrying such warnings on TikTok via accessibility> remove photosensitive video. It is not a onetime thing and can be changed at anytime.

In case you don't know, freezing an app is another means of disabling that app. The app won't send you notifications, and you can't even find it in your app's drawer. In fact, it acts as if it wasn't even installed on the phone in the first place. Freezing an app is actually between uninstalling and disabling the app.
This is a good practice for those who care a lot about RAM and battery management on their smartphones because freezing apps helps to reduce a lot of workloads on the phone's RAM.
With the introduction of HiOS, freezing apps is very easy and you don't even have to root your phone. Below is how to freeze your apps:
Tap on your home screen for a while > Desktop Settings > Other Settings and put on Freezer. (Go back to your home screen and you would find the freezer app).
In there, you can add as many apps as possible, as long as they are not the default system apps. When you're done, you can simply click on the “Ok” button to save your selection.
Now when you want to make use of an app after freezing it, all you have to do is, open the freezer app, and tap on your preferred app to unfreeze it.Read all >>
Migrating from one Android phone to another, especially when switching to a new brand, is…not very easy, to put it bluntly. The situation has improved in recent years, with more and more apps and settings supporting seamless migration, but the whole process still needs a fair few steps and quite some time out of your day, especially since most of your older apps get installed one-by-one and then require user intervention for a manual sign-in. While Google is working on making it easier to sign into apps on new devices, they’re also working behind-the-scenes to speed up the bulk restore process through the new “install hints” feature, which aims to help get your most important apps up and running as quickly as possible on a new device
Based on these commits, it seems that Install Hints will allow for four different compiler filters to be passed during app installation: DEFAULT, FAST, BULK_CRITICAL, and BULK_NON_CRITICAL. We presume that, during a phone restore process, an app store can send the “BULK_CRITICAL” flag to dex2oat so that certain critical apps can be installed more quickly, at the cost of optimization (which can presumably happen the next time the app is updated).
Based on your history of app installation and usage, it wouldn’t be difficult for a pre-installed app store to determine which apps you use most frequently. And based on what device you have, an app store would have a predetermined set of apps that it knows are critically needed for functionality, like Google Play Services and other OEM software services. Thus, these apps can be prioritized during a bulk installation process, at the cost of the first-run optimization.
How would this change impact you as a user, you might ask? Well, the commits haven’t actually been merged yet, so our analysis is based on the information we can see in the commits at the moment (and our analysis could change when the commits are finally merged). As a user installing a bevy of apps on a new phone, the app store will be able to prioritize the apps that it knows that you have used a lot on your last-used device. So if you use WhatsApp Messenger a lot, for example, the app store will pass the flag to the compiler to let it be installed more quickly, so you can get started with signing into the apps that are more useful for you. On the other hand, for apps that you use less often, these can be installed and optimized as normal. We don’t know how much time this will save a user — this very likely depends on how many apps are deemed critical and how many apps are being restored in the first place — but it could shave off minutes on older or slower phones downloading hundreds of apps.
As mentioned, the commits have not been merged yet, so we do not know when these changes will make their way to Android, or if there will be further changes to the code. If these commits are merged within the next few months, then we will see this feature become available for app stores in Android 12.Read all >>
Project Mainline is one of the biggest changes to Android in recent years. While you as a consumer may not notice this change, it fundamentally alters how Android operates as an open-source operating system, with more power now resting in the hands of Google than ever before. Whether this increase in control is good or bad is a topic for a different debate. Now, Google plans to include the Android Runtime (ART) as an updatable Mainline module in Android 12.
What is Android Runtime (ART)?
Android Runtime, or ART, is the default runtime on Android that was introduced back in 2013 along with Android 4.4 Kitkat. As Google mentions, ART is the “managed runtime used by applications and some system services on Android“.
Long story short, ART essentially translates an Android app’s bytecode into native instructions. It uses ahead-of-time compilation to compile apps into native machine code directly upon installation. As you can guess, this is a pretty important function that ideally should perform in the same manner across the entire Android ecosystem.
ART as a Mainline Module
As spotted by XDA Recognized Developer luca020400, a Google engineer has revealed that the company plans to make the Android Runtime (ART) an updatable Mainline module in Android S/Android 12.
By making ART a Mainline module, Google will be able to exercise much more control over it, in line with the overarching theme of mainline modules. As we mention in our primary explainer on Project Mainline:
Project Mainline extends the efforts of Project Treble. While Treble reduced how dependent OEMs were on SoC vendors for every single OS update, Mainline reduces how dependent Google is on OEMs for delivering security updates to key OS components. Project Mainline extends the Treble philosophy to more critical parts of the Android framework, removing OEMs as the dependent middlemen from this equation. The purpose of Project Mainline is for Google to wrest control of framework components and system applications that are critical to security and maintaining development consistency away from OEMs. Project Mainline is rightfully referred to as the biggest change to Android since Project Treble.
ART as a Mainline module would allow Google to update it without needing a system OTA update. If Google makes it mandatory for OEMs to preload a Google-signed ART module (likely delivered in the form of an APEX), then Google will be able to retain control over pushing updates to ART on all Android devices. Google would be able to push updates to ART through the Google Play Store, and OEMs wouldn’t be able to make modifications to ART. This in turn inches towards the behavioural consistency that third-party app developers would expect across the ecosystem.Read all >>
I’ve switched between owning an iPhone and various Android handsets over the years, but for me iOS remains easily the best mobile operating system (and iPhone 12 Pro the best smartphone). It would take something very special to tempt me back to Android.
Something like this stylish vision of Android 12.
Each update to Google’s mobile OS tends to fairly minor, but maybe next year with Android 12 Google should step things up.
Serial concept creator Kamer Kaan Avdan , who has previously released videos for updated versions of Windows 95 , Windows XP , Windows 7 , Windows 11 , Apple’s version of Windows 10 , and Windows 20 , now turns his attention to showing us what the next version of Android could look like.
Created using Adobe After Effects, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe XD, Avdan’s take on Android 12 comes with an all-new design, redesigned quick settings, improved multitasking, and better support for Dark Mode with the ability to set custom wallpapers. You can also pin contacts to the top in the Messages app.

Hi T-Fans.If you've been backing-up your photos with Google Photos app, you'reprobably familiar with it's awesome automatic creation, which can generate animation, collages, sterilized photos, movies and many more. The beautiful part is that you can also create this things by yourself using the app being that you backup your photos with the app or you're just a normal gallery user.
I'll be guiding us through a quick way to make simple animations with our photos using the app in this thread.
How to make your Animations
1. Snap the pictures you want to use using AI CAMERA. (I'd recommend you're steady while taking to avoid background motion and make use
of the same place for better output. Make use of BURST MODE for fast moving objects)
2. Open Google Photos app
3. Scroll through your photos and select the photos you want to use in the animation (you can hold on a picture until the "mark" icon is shown and scroll down to select multiple photos at once)
4. Tap on the "+" button in the top-right toolbar
5. Your new animation would be created and will be differentiated with an tampanimation stamp to differentiate it from other photos.
RELATED: How to Take Burst Photos with Tecno's AI Camera.
Creating Animations with BURST MODE
1. Take some photos with burst mode using AI CAMERA
2. Open the photo on Google photos
3. Hit on the "burst icon" in the bottom-middle of the photo
4. Hit "Create animation" to make your new animation
Output of created animations
That's the quickest way to create animations using Google Photos app. I'd like you to create an animation and share with us in the comments section below. Also follow me here for more tips and tricks. Thank you.

Our brains play a huge part in what makes us ‘us’, and keeping your brain in tip top condition can give you that head start towards success, particularly during your studies.
Here are the following tips that can help you:
Exercising doesn’t only improve our fitness levels, but can also help to develop a healthier brain. By running, cycling, swimming, or whatever form of exercise takes your fancy, you can strengthen the connections between brain cells. From this, your learning and memory skills can improve and you should be able to absorb more information from your lectures and library books.
It’s recommended that you exercise for at least 30 minutes, five times a week, but if you are relatively new to exercising, start off with a couple of times a week and slowly build it up. Otherwise you risk growing bored of the new routine, before you’ve developed the habit.
✓ BE CREATIVE:
Coloring in, as strange as it may sound, has been found to have the same effects on the brain as meditation – and if you search online you’ll find a huge selection of coloring books for adults, to match every interest! If cooking is more your thing, try out some new ingredients and recipes. Or if you’re more of an outdoorsy sort, challenge yourself to learn a new sport. Any time spent being creative and trying new things can really make a difference to your brain’s overall functioning.
✓ GET YOUR VITAMINS AND MICRONUTRIENTS:
Specific vitamins and nutrients can boost brain power in various ways. While zinc and iodine can contribute to normal brain cognition, vitamin B6, B12 and folate can help to prevent fatigue, a major cause of procrastination during studies. Omega-3 and one of its essential fatty acids, DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), can help the brain to function correctly – a vital part of learning – making them important nutrients to include in your daily diet.
It goes without saying that socializing is a significant part of your time at university, but did you know it can also help the way your brain performs? Research has found that having a conversation with someone, for as little as 10 minutes a day, can help keep your brain optimized, resulting in better memory and brain performance.
✓ POWER YOURSELF WITH NAP:
Making sure you get enough sleep at night, as well as having a 30-minute power nap during the day, gives your body enough time to repair and rejuvenate for another day of learning and studying.
✓ BREAK OUT OF YOUR DAILY ROUTINE:
Studies have found that frequently changing your daily routine, even in the slightest way, can help energize your brain and improve your efficiency and productivity when you study. Take a different route to and from university, try shopping somewhere new, or even challenge yourself by closing your eyes when unlocking the door. Aim to be surprised at least once every day.
✓ TRY SOMETHING NEW:
New experiences help your brain continue to grow, as well as taking in and storing information more easily. How about starting a new sport, learning a new language or learning to play a musical instrument? Check out an exhibition at a nearby museum or art gallery, try your hand at some volunteering, or if you have enough time, get away for a day/weekend/week to a brand-new place.

There are some common but unnoticeable mistakes that we ignorantly make while charging our android phones that slowly and steadily kill it.
1. You should try to avoid getting low battery warning too often. Every full discharge wears down your battery slowly without you knowing it.
2. Also, maintaining a full charge is not the most efficient way to keep your phone battery strong. So stop overcharging it overnight but instead go for shorter and more frequent bursts throughout the day.
3. You must also know that your android phone or phones is basically a needy little computer baby that needs to be bundled up and cooled off on a regular basis.4. You must also switch off your phone while charging for a healthy and long lasting battery.
5. And lastly, resist from using different chargers to charge your phone. Maintain a single and personal charger for your android phone.
