Star Messages in WhatsApp
With the ever-growing number of messages in WhatsApp, there are times when it is difficult to find some important message or telephone number which a friend had sent you, say, a month ago. You know it is very much there, but it could take ages to find it. More so, if the message is hiding in a tonne of group messages which you receive every day.
 
WhatsApp allows you to ‘Star’ a message—marking it as important, so to say. Just long press on a message and, on the menu that appears on the top; tap on Star. This will mark the message as starred. This is exactly like marking the message with a Bookmark or as a favourite.
 
Later, when you wish to find a starred message, all you have to do is go to the menu, and tap on starred messages. You will get all the starred messages listed in chronological order. You can further search within starred messages and reach your desired message quickly. Further, you can ‘Unstar’ a message later, making it easier to manage the starred messages.

A very useful tip !

Find My Phone: Where on Earth Is It?!
Many a time, we tend to misplace our phone at home or in the office. The simplest way to locate it is to dial your phone from a nearby phone; the phone will ring, making it easy to find it. But what if the phone is in silent mode? It may keep vibrating in your bag or in your desk drawer and you would not be able to locate it.
 
Google has a simple solution. Go to your computer browser and, in the Google search box, type ‘find my phone’ (without the quotes). If you are already logged on to your Google account, it may still ask you for your password, for security purposes. Once your password is verified, it will start making your phone ring at full volume, even if it is in silent mode! If you are not nearby—God forbid, if you left your phone in a public place—it will show you on the Google map where it is, and it will keep ringing there.
 
Find My Phone does not let you erase the data on your phone, nor does it disable your phone remotely—there are other apps for that—but it is a very simple and effective tool to locate your phone. Of course, your Mobile Data or WiFi connection should be on, to make it work.

Very useful information. Thank you.

Your faulty printer can fall prey to hackers
New Delhi, In view of the rising cyber security threats, HP India on Tuesday elaborated on how a non-secure multi-function printer can fall prey to hackers and break into an organisations network to steal confidential information.
 
According to a survey, 92 per cent companies have reported security breaches leading to financial as well as reputation loss, of which nearly 60 per cent took place due to a faulty printer in the company's network. 
 
"The importance of upgrading a printer's firmware on regular intervals, lack of which can lead to a hack in its system code and compromise it in accepting malicious lines of code. That code can then be used by the hacker to get access to print jobs and to the user's computer where the print job was initiated," Raj Kumar Rishi, Senior Director, Printing Systems, HP India, told reporters here. 
 
The need to include printer security as part of the government policy guidelines and recognise them as a vital network end point that is critical to the IT managers worldwide. 
 
Keeping these threats in mind, Rishi elaborated on HP's efforts in developing products and technology to provide secure printing to their customers. 
 
HP now offers various secure features like "HP Sure Start", "HP Future Smart Firmware", "HP Jet Advantage Secure" and "Private Print" to prevent exposure of sensitive documents and unauthorised access to the printer and the print jobs. 
 
HP also has secure "Managed Print Services" through which, it offers secure printers that are pre-configured for security to prevent outside networks from hacking into the printer using the lesser used ports.

I wonder how many thousands of crores his UB company must have paid to the government in all these years. They expect that a company should not fail, that shows that we do not know banking, and why onetime settlement at DRT has has not been done as is the norm for companies that fail. People are treated differently for no known reasons in this country.
