HOW TO SOLVE THE VIRUS PROBLEMS ON TECNO PHONES

Lighthouse | 2020-05-18234087

General
Hello T-Fans, Every day all around the world, millions of files and apps being downloaded to mobile devices. While some of these files being downloaded are safe and from verifiable sources, a lot more of them are underlined with malware or a virus. What is Malware? Malware is the general name for any kind of harmful software, including viruses. They get into your device and disrupt the smooth performance of the device. Who is at Risk? Literarily, everyone is at risk. If you own a smartphone and you browse the internet, share files, and download apps and files, you are at risk. The truth is, most of these apps and files we download have malware attached to it to get specific information (data theft) from whoever downloads such a file. Who is at Greater Risk? • The following users are at greater risk: • Users who use modded apps and games (like GB Whatsapp, Yo Whatsapp, Unlimited coins subway surf). • Users who download pornographic contents or visit sites that has pornographic contents • Users whole click on “click baits” (Win free) Is My Phone Affected? A lot of users have malware on their mobile phone devices without even realizing it. While some malware comes into your device and begins causing havoc on your phones, others work quietly (stealing user data) Symptoms your phone is already affected • Below are some of the symptoms that your mobile device is already affected: • Mysterious disappearance of files on the device (files deleting itself) • Files multiplying on the device (making copies) • Phone suddenly becoming slow even when not in use • Functions just stop working (e.g. Bluetooth stop working, Wi-Fi not turning on, can’t open settings, etc.) How To Fix Virus Issues? HiOS provides an in-built antivirus system in the Phone Master App that helps protects your Tecno devices from these viruses and malware. All you need to do is make sure you scan your device from time to time to make sure you are safe and secure. However, some of these viruses get past the antivirus because some users deactivate Phone Master or do not use it. Also, users who root their devices are at risk too. How To Activate it on Your device? Luckily for Tecno users, It comes with the Phone Master app, so no need to start searching for another on. All you need to do is follow these easy steps: Step 1: Open the Phone Master App Step 2: Click on Antivirus Step 3: The antivirus starts scanning and you see a result after P.S: Once the Malware is already active on the phone, the best option is to restore factory settings as even an antivirus can't restore the damage done.

HOW TO USE THIRD PARTY FONTS ON YOUR TECNO DEVICE.

This post was last edited by yusufaliu at 2020-5-19 05:38 Hello T-fans. In light of finding a temporary solution to the inability to use third party fonts on our device, while we wait for the response of the Tecno team, here's a guide on howyou can do this without rooting your device or the use of a third party app. Don't forget to share your experience in the comment box STEPS(1) Click here to download any font of your choice e.g charmonman-regular.ttf.Please note that some of the downloaded files may come as a zip file. Which will require you to unzip so as to get the ttf format. (2) Copy and paste the extract of the downloaded file (charmonman-regular.ttf) on internal storage>magic fonts>download>fonts>en (3) On the same folder, copy the name of any of the default files downloaded via fantasy magic font app e.g if you've ever downloaded the font 'Bellota' through fantasy magic font app, it will appear on this folder as 'Bellota-v5.01-49130D2B7490BA17073B407EA5736F49.ttf' So copy the 'Bellota' file name. (4) After that delete the 'Bellota' font file from the same folder and replace the name of the downloaded file from step 1 with that of the 'Bellota' file name copied in step 3 (e.g charmonman-regular.ttf now becomes Bellota-v5.01-49130D2B7490BA17073B407EA5736F49.ttf) (5) Head over to fantasy magic font app to apply the font 'Bellota' from the list of fonts. Doing this will change and apply the font you downloaded as the 'Bellota' font style in fantasy magic font app.For this to work, please ensure what ever font file of the fantasy magic font app you will be replacing in step 3 and 4 is downloaded but not applied on your device. You can repeat the process using other default font files and also, don't forget that some of the downloaded files may come as a zip file which will require you to unzip, to get the ttf file.Courtesy: Ice-Lids Read all >>

HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR SMARTPHONE

Hoilakes | 2020-05-13314462

General
We have become a smartphone society. In NAIJA, around two-thirds of people own smartphones, and many of those people consider their phones an essential device for getting online. Smartphones aren’t cheap, either. While the average price of an Android phone 35,000 - 45,000, though there are many phones that cost even more. Believe it or not, if you have the funds, you can pay thousands or even millions of dollars for a smartphone. Most people take a deep breath when it’s time to replace their phones because they know it’s going to hurt their wallet. But you can put off that painful experience by keeping your phone in good health. Here’s a checklist of ways to protect your smartphone. Let’s start with external threats. 1. GET A CASE There’s nothing worse than dropping your phone and shattering the screen. It happens a lot, and there’s no guarantee you’ll be able to get it fixed. The answer is to protect your phone with a case. There are dozens to choose from for every model. If you know you often drop your phone, then get a case that will protect your phone against anything (even driving a truck over it!). It will make it heavier, but it’s worth it. Otherwise, a slimmer case or simple sleeve will do. One tip: if you’ re using a clip-on case, make sure it’s got a decent-sized lip all around so if the phone does drop, it doesn’t land directly on the screen. 2. PROTECT YOURSCREEN Speaking of screens, consider a screen protector. Some screens are made of tough material and may not need them. However, a protector may keep your screen together if you drop the phone. It also means it's harder to scratch your screen, which can affect its responsiveness. Get protector that’s easy to apply and is right for your phone. AM NOT HERE TO BORE YOU WITH STORIES FOLLOW UP ON TSPOT… AND WATCH OUT FOR MY NEXT POST FOR THE CONTINUATION @HOILAKES Read all >>

Different Ways To Take Screenshots On Your TECNO Smartphone

enoch273 | 2020-05-03261176

Photographies
Hello T-Fans, today I will be sharing with you all the different methods for taking screenshots on our android smartphone. I know some of you might look down on this post, let me quickly remind you that, this is among the most essential feature on your smartphone, cause I am yet to see a smartphone user in his/her prime who has never made use of the screenshot feature. Mind you apart from TECNO Smartphones, you will find out that some of these methods of taking screenshots will also work on other brands of android devices. But today, this tutorial will be strictly for TECNO users and I will be sharing the different ways to take screenshots on your TECNO smartphone. Different Methods For Taking Screenshots On TECNO Android Phone. >> Using The Volume Down + Power Button. The traditional method of simultaneously pressing down the volume down rocker keys and power button for few seconds takes the first spot, seeing this happens to be the very first method and smartphone users started with and it's reputation precedes it. Some of you prefer this method and it has also become a habit, cause of how some smartphone users make it seem so user. Though there are a majority of smartphone users who disagree and see it as the most complex and the reasons are not far fetched cause; if you press the power button too soon, your device screen goes off, also if you press the volume down rocker keys too soon, you only reduce the volume sound of the device. So you see, you will agree with me there is a knack to getting the timing right. >> Using The Screenshot Feature On The Quick Notification Shade. Change is truly constant, TECNO saw the importance of its users taking screenshots and decided to make it come in handy for them, by making it available for quick and easy access on their notification shade. Getting access to this screenshot is not as complex as its predecessor. All you have to do is; ✓ Swipe down from the top of your device screen twice to unveil your device notification shade. ✓ Tap on the screenshot icon indicated by the red arrow above. >> Using Google Assistant This method is quite easy, though I see it as not effective if time is running against you, or you are trying to screenshot, someone WhatsApp status update, but then here is how to take a screen with Google Assistant; ✓ make sure you are on the page you wish to screenshot, then proceed to call up the Google Assistant either by making use of "Voice Command" or a "Dedicated Google Assistant Button". ✓ once it's up, simply say "Take a Screenshot", or better still you can input those same words via your smartphone keyboard. ✓ Voila, a screenshot has been successfully captured via Google Assistant, it will also prompt you to share with your social media pages. >> Using Three Finger Gesture I can vividly remember the first time I tried this out, I left most of the people around me in awe. This is really innovative and it's done by sliding your three fingers from the top of your screen to bottom. Here is how to take a screenshot with Three Finger Gesture; ✓ Click on your device "Settings" ✓ locate and click on "Micro Intelligence", you should see a host of different features you can activate and use. ✓ simply click the toggle beside "Take Screenshot With Three Fingers" to activate the feature. >> Using The Smart Panel. This particular app has gone by so many names and it is as first spotted on the TECNO Spark K7 and termed the "T-Point". Unlike its predecessors, the latest update of the smart Panel is freaking dope and makes it easier and faster for users to take screenshots and also access their most used/preferred apps.Here is how to activate and use the smart Panel; ✓ Click on your device "Settings" ✓ locate and select the "Smart Panel" option. ✓ at the top right-hand corner, you should see a toggle, click to enable/activate the smart Panel. ✓ swipe from any corner of the screen edge, Left OR Right, and click on the screenshot icon as indicated by the red arrow above. Looking at these five (5) different methods of taking screenshots on TECNO Smartphones, you will see that the brand has come a long way, Android devices, in particular, have got loads of great features to make your life easier. And that is pretty much everything about the different ways of taking screenshots on your TECNO android devices. Do let us know your preferred method for taking screenshots on your android device via the comments section below and don't forget to follow my account to see more of my posts. Read all >>

HOW TO ENABLE HIBERNATE OPTION IN WINDOWS 10 CONTROL PANEL

nas | 2020-05-1616511

General
Hello T-Fans Many users of Windows operating system prefer to use the Hibernate option so that they can resume all the work very quickly when the system boots up. However, the option may not be enabled for everyone by default. If you are missing the option to Hibernate your computer in the Control Panel, here is a step-by-step guide using which you can enable the option on your device. For this, we’ll be using Command Prompt but don’t worry, it’s all easy and you just have to copy-paste commands. What Is Hibernate And How It Works Hibernate feature in the Windows operating system allows the system to save and write the running state of the computer to the hard disk before powering off the machine. So, when you start your computer next time, it starts from where you left off, with all the apps still running. The feature uses Hiberfil.sys file which is stored and hidden in the root folder of the Windows installation. The size of this file is approximately the size of random access memory (RAM) installed. The system memory is stored in this file and the file is required for the Hibernate feature to work. Normally, you can enable the Hibernate feature on your Windows 10 computer from the Control Panel. However, if the Hiberfil.sys is not present on your device, then the option won’t be showcased. How To Enable Hibernate Option In Windows 10 In this guide, we’ll show you how to enable the feature when it’s not visible in the Control Panel. 1. Open the Start menu and search for “cmd” or “command prompt”. 2. When the app appears, right-click on it and click on “Run as administrator”. 3. Now, enter this command: “powercfg /hibernate on”. 4. Once that is done, set the Hiberfile type as full. Enter the command “powercfg /h/ type full”. 5. Restart your computer. Once you restart the computer after following the above steps, you’ll see that Hibernate option is now available on your system. Source Read all >>

WHAT IS TWO FACTOR AUTHENTICATION?

dc8official | 2020-05-13123579

General
This post was last edited by dc8official at 2020-5-13 11:31 For most internet users, username and passwords are the safest means of protecting their accounts. Although we have always tried to encourage users to create secure passwords and use password managers, sometimes those guides are honestly too complicated for most conventional internet users. Also, a complicated password will not stop your account from hackers when there is a data breach. Two-factor authentication (2FA) provides users with an extra layer of protection during logins even if you didn't create a strong password or your password has been stolen in a data breach. Think about 2FA like a cash vault which has multiple locking systems, a code combination lock, typical locks with a key and biometric locking system, for you to access this vault you will have to unlock lock all three locking systems. Even if an intruder compromises one of those systems, the other two systems will definitely make life difficult to the intruder. With 2FA, an extra layer of security is used to make sure that people trying to gain access to an online account are who they say they are. First, a user will enter their username and a password. Instead of immediately gaining access, they will be required to provide another piece of authentication. TYPES OF 2FA Several types of two-factor authentication are in use today; some may be stronger or more complex than others, but all offer better protection than passwords alone. Let’s look at the most common forms of 2FA. 1. Hardware Tokens for 2FA Probably the oldest form of 2FA, hardware tokens are small, like a key fob, and produce a new numeric code every 30-seconds. When a user tries to access an account, they glance at the device and enter the displayed 2FA code back into the site or app. Other versions of hardware tokens automatically transfer the 2FA code when plugged into a computer’s USB port or via NFC. The problem is if you look your token, you risk looking access your account. 2. SMS Text-Message and Voice-based 2FA SMS-based 2FA interacts directly with a user’s phone. After receiving a username and password, the site sends the user a unique one-time passcode (OTP) via text message. Like the hardware token process, a user must then enter the OTP back into the application before getting access. Similarly, voice-based 2FA automatically dials a user and verbally delivers the 2FA code. This method is common in countries where smartphones are expensive, or where cell service is poor. For a low-risk online activity, authentication by text or voice may be all you need. But for websites that store your personal information — like utility companies, banks, or email accounts — this level of 2FA may not be secure enough. In fact, SMS is considered to be the least secure way to authenticate users. 3. Software Tokens for 2FA The most popular form of two-factor authentication and a preferred alternative to SMS and voice. IT uses a software-generated time-based, one-time passcode. First, a user must download and install a free 2FA app on their smartphone or desktop. They can then use the app with any site that supports this type of authentication. At sign-in, the user first enters a username and password, and then, when prompted, they enter the code shown on the app. Like hardware tokens, the soft-token is typically valid for less than a minute. And because the code is generated and displayed on the same device, soft-tokens remove the chance of hacker interception. That’s a big concern with SMS or voice delivery methods. Best of all, since app-based 2FA solutions are available for mobile, wearables, or desktop platforms — and even work offline — user authentication is possible just about everywhere. 4. Push Notification for 2FA Rather than relying on the receipt and entry of a 2FA token, websites and apps can now send the user a push notification that an authentication attempt is taking place. The device owner simply views the details and can approve or deny access with a single touch. It’s passwordless authentication with no codes to enter, and no additional interaction required. By having a direct and secure connection between the retailer, the 2FA service, and the device, push notification eliminates any opportunity for phishing, man-in-the-middle attacks, or unauthorized access. But it only works with an internet-connected device, one that’s able to install apps to. Also, in areas where smartphone penetration is low, or where the internet is unreliable, SMS-based 2FA may be a preferred fall-back. But where it is an option, push notifications provide a more user-friendly, more secure form of security. PROBLEM WITH 2FA Even with its benefits, 2FA isn't perfect. Let’s examine some risks that might make a safety-conscious user reluctant to turn on two-factor authentication. 1. You could lose access to your account If attackers cannot use a password alone to access your account without your second factor, you won’t be able to either. You may be unable to recovery your account if your security key, or the phone with your authenticator app, is lost, stolen, or broken. If your phone is only out of battery, left it at home, or lent to someone else, you may lose access for hours or days. Some websites, including GitHub, do not allow you to use a password reset email to recover your account if you don’t also have your second factor. This further raises the importance of having a backup; if you don’t have a backup, losing your second factor can cause you to lose your account forever. 2. Confidence in two-factor authentication could make you careless People behave less safely when they believe they are being kept safe by others: drivers who wouldn’t choose to wear seat-belts drive faster if forced to wear them and computer users who run anti-virus software are more likely to install risky software. Researchers have already shown that this principle also applies to two-factor authentication, observing that users required to employ a second factor (a fingerprint in their study) chose weaker PINs (numeric passwords) than those who were not. If you believe that turning on two-factor authentication is a fool-proof way to protect your accounts, you may be more willing to login from a computer you don’t trust or more likely to risk installing software from an unknown or unfamiliar publisher. WRAP UPJust like every other control used to mitigate security risk, 2FA isn't without flaws. But as I said before the more security controls you adopt, the better you chances against hackers. So the next time you set up that all-important account online which you can't afford to loose, make your you add an extra layer of authentication. Over the course of time, we will show us how to to set up 2FA on various platforms and accounts and what apps is best used when setting up 2FA Read all >>

nas | 2020-03-16144436

Hi T-Fans, First of all what makes up a strong password? Astrong password is lengthy (the longer the better); a mix of letters (upper and lower case), numbers, and symbols, that has nothing to d with your personal information, and no dictionary words. 1. Make it long Choose nothing shorter than 15 characters, more if possible. 2. Use mixed characters The more you mix up letters (upper-case and lower-case), numbers, and symbols, the stronger your password is, and the harder it is to crack it. 3. Don't use personal information For example don't use your date of birth, name, surname, or anything that has to do with you as your password, because you will make it easier for it to be cracked. 4. Don't use dictionary words Hackers have can use software that will try different dictionary words as an attempt to get your password and if you choose one, the software will definitely crack it.
