Nigerian Banks Stop The Use of your ATM Cards Abroad? Here are Alternatives !

The Central Bank of Nigeria has of late enforced certain restrictions on the usage of bank ATM cards popularly known as Automated Teller Machine cards, for dollar-denominated transactions when they travel abroad with effect from January 1, 2016. This means bank customers will not be able to use their cards to purchase products outside the country especially from foreign e-commerce sites like AliExpress, E-Bay, Gearbest and Amazon which involve foreign currency transactions.


According to CBN, before CBN will start talking of lifting the current restriction placed on ATM card usage abroad and foreign transactions, that the country must build the foreign reserve to the tune of $50billion. At the moment, it is $29billion. That might take a long time before it will be achieve.


Bad right? A transaction I made from renewing one of our client domains was charged by GTBank at the rate of N269.50 per US dollar while another was charged by Diamond Bank PLC at the rate of N275.00 per US dollar. So I start to think if there is any possible alternative one can use to survive through this ash season. Fortunately there are alternatives.


Alternatives to Nigeria ATM Cards

1. GTBank Dollar Master Card 


This cards are for those with GTBank domiciliary account, you can just walk into any GTBank branch near you and demand for a Dollar Master Card. With this dollar master card, you can do everything online, foreign site and even withdraw in naira using the local ATM.


2. Zenith MasterCard WebSurfer – 


Zenith Websurfer is a moderately good brand of MasterCard issued by Zenith Bank. This card is not a credit card that you can use to withdraw cash from the ATM machine. The Web Surfer is a low limit card that can only be used on the internet just as the name sounds.


How to apply for Zenith MasterCard WebSurfer


OR

¶ Walk into any head Zenith bank branch and request for a websurfer account opening form.

Things you will have before going to the bank are:
¶ One recent passport photo
¶ The ID type you used in the request form
¶ At least $150 cash


After opening your account, wait for at least 48hour (but your account is activated whenever you receive the mail even if it is 12hrs or 24hrs) for your account to be fully activated. In fact check the email you used for the Websurfer for your account activation information.


3. PaYoneer Master Card –


Payoneer is one of the rapidly growing payment processors and when I say its growing I really mean its growing, because almost every day you get to know that some renowned firm(s) has signed-up with Payoneer.com to pay their members. 

This card is free to get. No bank account required, and the card can be used to make purchases or withdraw cash worldwide where MasterCard® is accepted.


 If you have other alternatives, kindly list them below using the comment box.

5 Best New Free Photo Editing Apps for Android

Photo editing via android is so easy and brilliant. Apps available on the Android platform do a very good job of editing photos. Let check out this different photo editing apps:

1. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

Released in the early part of this year, Lightroom from Adobe went free a while back for Android. It has all the basic features that users who’ve already used Adobe Lightroom on desktops/laptops will be familiar with. Light being the essential part of any photo, users can customize it using the Lightroom app to varying results.



The app, however, is no desktop alternative. The UI isn’t as intuitive on Android and there are some random issues with crashes and such. But, hey, it’s now free and supports RAW images too.



2. PIP Camera

It may sound like a camera app, but PIP Camera is all about editing photos. Yes, it’s free, but comes loaded with ads. That kinda ruins the experience, especially since there seem to be ads almost everywhere in this app. On the plus side, there are plenty of editing options in this app along with a collage maker, a magazine creator and some additional cool effects like having your photo embedded within a stamp.



Although the app feels a bit clunky (as well as cheesy) at times, if you can get used to it, there are plenty of fun features to be explored besides adding filters, cropping, adjusting contrast and so on. It may not be as comprehensive in its list of features as Pixlr, but it’s not that far behind.

3. Cameringo Lite

This is actually a camera app with quite a few editing options, but I’ve seen most users enjoy the editing options so much they barely use it as a camera app. There are some funky filters here which will mash your face or make the surroundings look like it’s falling in, but that’s just the beginning.
 


There are things like Lomo effects, HDR, Panorama effects, light leaks and GIF animations too. I’ve even used the paid version of this (Cameringo+) and have found it to be thoroughly enjoyable. It’s no Snapseed or VSCO, but it’s a lot more fun to play around with.

4. Polarr

A comprehensive list of features adorns this app, which works only in landscape mode by default. But that isn’t a bad thing, especially if you’re serious about editing images on a smaller screen. The app not only has basic adjustments and filters, but also more advanced ones like Histogram and Curves.

There are no ads that bother you in this free app, which is great. Moreover, there are plenty of options to import/export and history to see which change affected your picture in what way. This app is ideal for people who are looking for newer alternatives for VSCO as well as Snapseed.

Download Polarr here.

5. Youcam Makeup

This app is certainly targeted to the ladies. With a selfie-focussed approach, the app can help your eyes look bigger, lips more fuller and guess what? Even add a dash of makeup here and there.


That’s not all, you can even add accessories like earrings, headbands and necklaces to enhance your look if you so feel the need to.
It may not look very realistic in most cases but may prove fun for casual sharing on social networks. This app is also ad-supported but they don’t come in your face and users can work around these.

Hope it helps?

Facebook 2g Tuesday will Definitely slow down internet for Employees

Facebook 2g Tuesday will Definitely slow down internet for Employees

Recently, Facebook has announced an internal initiative called "2G Tuesdays" that will help employees better understand how hard it is to use the social platform on slow Internet connections, like the kind prevalent in India and other emerging markets.

 Announcing the news, Product Manager Chris Marra in a blog post explained the whole idea behind 2G Tuesdays.

"People are coming online at a fast rate in emerging markets. In most cases, they are doing so on mobile via 2G connections. But on a typical 2G network, it can take several minutes to download a webpage.
 That doesn't make for a great experience when sharing content with friends and family. To build for a global audience like ours, we know that we need to design features that work seamlessly even on a 2G network," Marra said.

Under Facebook's 2G Tuesdays, employees will have to use the social platform as well as other related apps such as Messenger on slow Internet connection. Notably, the new initiative has an opt-in option and employees will only have the slow Internet connection for an hour.

"We're taking another step toward better understanding by implementing '2G Tuesdays' for Facebook employees. On Tuesdays employees will get a pop-up that gives them the option to simulate a 2G connection. We hope this will help us understand how people with 2G connectivity use our product, so we can address issues and pain points in future builds," added Marra.

Detailing how the new initiative will work, Tom Alison, Facebook's Director of Engineering, told Business Insider, "For that next hour, their experience on Facebook will be very much like the experience that millions of people around the world have on Facebook on a 2G connection. They're going to see the places that we need to improve our product, but they're also going to see the places where we have made a lot of progress."

Facebook back in June had rolled out a new Android app called Facebook Lite, which was available in countries across Asia and was also planned to roll out in parts of Latin America, Africa and Europe.

How to Secure Your Facebook Account for 100% - 2015

Hello everyone, Today  is back with a great post about How to secure your Facebook Account for 100%. I bet, if you follow all the below steps for how to secure facebook account, then no one can hack your facebook account.

I always use to tell my personal quote to my friends,
" Dont blame the Hacker who hacked your facebook account. Instead, Blame your innocence for getting hacked " 
Yes, its true. A hacker can only hack your facebook account if you are a innocent guy. If you have a basic idea about what is hacking and if you follow all the security tips for your account then you will  always be secured. Well, Coming to the topic,

Steps for Securing Facebook Account :
  
1. Update Password :

The Primary step of how to secure your facebook account is Updating your password for every 1-2 weeksNever keep your facebook password in a easy predicatble way which can be guessed by your surrounding people like keeping your nickname or birthdate or your Girl friend/Boy friend`s name etc. I suggest you to have a strong password of mixed alphabets, numbers, symbols containing more than 10digits like john+1298smith or 1298smith*john

And I also like to share one important tip with you is not to have the same password for your Facebook, Gmail, Yahoo becoz if anyone knows that your facebook password is same as your Mail password he will also login to your gmail/yahoo and reads all your personal emails. 
You must also know that If someone hacks your facebook password and gain access to your account then you can get back your facebook account by using the recovery option which is connected to your Gmail/Yahoo but what if you keep the same password for your Mail account as Fb?
 The hacker will simply change the Mail account password and now you will loose the recovery option as where you will loose your permanent access to your fb account. So thats why I am suggesting you to have a different strong passwords for all of your different accounts.

Facebook - General Account Settings  

2. Email:

One of the important step for how to secure facebook account is Adding Secondary Email ID to your facebook account. This will helps you when your profile is hacked, Fb will send account recovery information to the secondary email ID also. So I suggest everyone to add your secondary email id.
To add secondary email Id to your Facebook account, Click Here.

Adding Secondary Email ID to your facebook account-secure facebook account
So when you add Seconday Email Id, Facebook will ask for Email Confirmation which means you have to to verify the email address by checking the mail at your respective Email Inbox .

3. Connecting your Mobile number to Facebook Account :     
  
Connecting your personal mobile number to your facebook account
really helps a lot to secure your facebook acount like when anyone hacks your fb account, you will be able to recover your lost account 
by mobile easily or if your facebook account was tempararirly locked you can gain access to it by confirming it with your connected mobile number.
So I suggest everyone to connect their mobile no to their fb account. To connect Click Here 
Follow all the steps there by providing country name, carrier and verify your mobile number.

Note: You must notice that for each facebook account, A unique mobile no must be provided which means no two Fb accounts can have a same mobile no.

  Facebook - Security Settings
   
4. Secure Browsing :

This plays a crucial role to secure facebook account. Make sure that the secure browsing is always enabled in your facebook acount. If not, Click Here to enable secure browsing for your facebook account.

By enabling this secure browsing, you will be browsing your facebook account in a secure connection [https] which helps you to keep your account safe from spammers, viruses and hackers.

5. Login Notifications :   
Login notifications will helps you to get notified when someone else is trying to access your account. It means when anyone is trying to access your fb account from a computer or mobile that you haven`t used before then facebook will notify you by sending a message to your Email inbox , Mobile inbox.
So to Enable Login notifications to your facebook account, Click Here. 

 Enable both Email and Text message option so that whenever you are away from Computer you will be notified by your mobile atleast.

Code Generator :

You can use this Code Generator in your facebook mobile app to reset your password or to generate Login Approvals security codes.
You can enable this feature on your  android mobile or iOS.

To enable Code generator on your mobile, follow the instructions  as given in the official help center page of facebook by Clicking Here .

6. Trusted Contacts :

Trusted contacts are friends that can securely help you if you ever have trouble accessing your account. Earlier I wrote a clear post about how to enable trusted contacts to your facebook account to get secured and how it will help you to get access to your facebook account when you lost your facebook account. So I recommend you to please check this post,


Trusted-Contacts-Security-Settings-secure facebook-account
Also have a look at the below new security features for your facebook account,

7. Trusted Browsers :

By this Trusted browsers feature, You can check which browsers you saved as ones you often use.

One thing I should remind you here is facebook asks you to Save Browser when you login. So always save the browser of which you often use in either your home or any trusted place. Why I`m telling you this is because when any suspicious activity is found or any hacker trying to access your account from somewhere else, Facebook will make your account to get Temporarily locked. So now facebook will ask the owner of that particular account to get logged in from the previous browser which you often use. It means your Trusted browser will helps you to unlock your facebook account at that time.

8. Where You're Logged In :

The feature Where You're Logged In  helps you to review and manage where you're currently logged into facebook. It shows two  sessions - Current Session and Last Accessed Session.


This feature helps a lot. When our account gets hacked and If we want to know the location from which our fb account was last accessed, you can check it by this feature Where You're Logged In .
You can also get the Estimated Ip address of that hacker by placing the mouse over Location as I shown in the above picture.

All the above steps will protect you for a major extent but you should be careful from hackers who trolls you by phishing pages, keyloggers. You should be careful and never click any suspicious links. Just spend some time over Google,Youtube by seacrching about how phishing , keyloggers works and how to stay safe from them.


Some more Personal Tips for you to Secure facebook Account :


  1. Never give out your login info to any other Third party sites, Sometimes some people or pages will promise you something like free facebook likes , free followers , free poker chips etc etc. These types of deals are carried out by hackers. so you must  stay away from them. If you're ever asked to re-enter your  password on Facebook (ex: you're making changes to your account settings) check to make sure the address of the page still has facebook.com/ in the URL.                                     
  2. Think before you click on any link. Never click suspicious links, even if they come from a friend or a company you know. This includes links sent on Facebook (ex: in a chat or post) or in emails. If one of your friends clicks on spam they could accidentally send you that spam or tag you in a spammy post. You also shouldn't download things (ex: a .exe file) if you aren’t sure what they are. Learn more about recognizing suspicious emails by Clicking Here.
  3. Log in at www.facebook.com only. Sometimes scammers will set up a fake page to look like a Facebook login page [Phishing], hoping to get you to enter your email address and password. Make sure that you check the page's URL (web address) before you enter your login info. When in doubt, you can always type facebook.com into your browser to get back to the real Facebook.
  4. Update your browser always. The newest versions of internet browsers have built in security protections. For example, they might be able to warn you if you're about to go to a suspected phishing site. 
  5. Run good anti-virus software to protect yourself from viruses and malware.
