Although public Wi-Fi networks are readily available in most places, there are times when people need to use mobile data. Often, we may not get a strong enough signal on a 4G or 5G network.

Carrier redundancy refers to having more than one carrier at a time as a means of backup connectivity. If one carrier experiences an outage, then the second carrier comes online to pick up the connection. Network redundancy means having more than one type of connection available at one time.

Just because a connector fits your device doesn’t mean you should use it for charging. Unlicensed third-party cables might damage your mobile phone or computer. Also there is a more subtle risk of quicker-than-normal battery degradation through fast-charging. All batteries lose their ability to hold a charge over time, but high-voltage charging may accelerate this […]

Since device fingerprinting uses the characteristics of your browser configuration to track you, deleting cookies won’t help. Device fingerprinting technologies are evolving and can be used to […]
If you have a phone that supports mmWave 5G (e.g., iPhone 12 and later) along with an ample data plan, it can be a good alternative to public Wi-Fi hotspots in dense areas. Not only is it much faster, but it’s also more secure, since there isn’t the risk of man-in-the-middle attacks. Just be mindful […]
