WHAT ARE VPN'S USED FOR?

Your privacy matters! | Random Apps

VPN is an acronym that stands for Virtual Private Network. A VPN is basically a virtual private network that enables you to send or receive shared data to other private or public networks while using a public network as if you are on a private network. This in all means that a VPN covers your true identity.

Using a VPN comes will a lot of different benefits. When using a VPN, your location is kept anonymous. Meaning that no one will know your exact location depending on the VPN accuracy. The only location people will know of, is the location of the server you are connected to on a VPN.

Secondly, a VPN helps to prevent unauthorized data collection from public networks some public network mostly collect connected user data without permission. With a VPN, they'll definitely collect the wrong information.

To stay safe and away from hackers, for both the safety of your device and your personal information. I recommend that you try out one of the VPN service apps I listed below. They have the best service and great accuracy. Plus they have been trusted and used by big companies around the world. Not to also mention that they are affordable and easy to use.


1. Nord VPN



Nord VPN is one of the world's biggest and trusted VPN services sp far. Many companies and people around the world use Nord VPN to give them their freedom of privacy.

Nord VPN is available on many platforms including Android, IOS, Windows, Linux, etc. The VPN service provider has had good reviews from people around the world including myself. Try it out and you'll see.

2. Kaspersky Secure Connection



Kaspersky Secure Connection is a VPN service created by the Kasperky company that mainly focuses on building apps to protect you and your device from internet threats. One of their apps includes the Kaspersky Office to protect all your business devices from viruses and hackers, Kaspersky Home security to protect all devices you have at home from internet threats. I believe that Kaspersky is an expert at protecting devices. I myself have purchased the Kaspersky Home Security for both my smartphone and my laptop. I have encountered nothing but the perfection of the platform. Back to the VPN app. 

The app has an affordable pay as you use platform with a price of $1.70-$2 a month. Don't get me wrong. With Kaspersky Secure Connection you only pay for that month you are using the app. There's also a free version, but it's capped at 300MB.

THE BEST TRADING PLATFORMS YOU SHOULD TRY OUT


Photo by energepic.com from Pexels


I have to admit, trading is not an easy thing to do. Especially when it comes to making an analysis of your trading and then making a decision based on your analysis. The trading platforms I am about to list to you have it all. There are tutorials on how to trade successfully and on how to use some trading tools.

Today I'm going to give you the best trading platforms to try out. These trading platforms have the most affordable prices to start with and the best analysis tools. On top of that, some of the trading platforms I am going to list have trading bonuses. Isn't that awesome? Good. Let's get started!

1. IQ OPTION



IQ Option is a multi-trading platform founded on 16 February 2010 (According to a google search). The IQ Option broker has different and advanced software for trading options, forex, cryptocurrency, etc. This broker has a minimum deposit amount of $10 and no minimum withdrawal amount as of 28 November 2020. The broker has about 50 million-plus downloads on Google Play Store. That I think is one of the best parts about IQ Option. There are no sign-up bonuses.

Despite the hardship and challenges many traders face, the IQ Option contains video tutorials to help you with your trading. If you happen to have a lot of losses, IQ Option will decide to call you and advise you on the best strategies to use when trading.

Here's the BEST part. IQ Option also offers traders a tournament. Well, tournaments give traders around the world a chance to compete against each other on who will make the best profit in a certain amount of time. Some tournaments have an entry fee, while some are free to enter. Tournaments are only based on binary options.

Also, tournaments have different prize pools. Again, on the IQ Option tournaments, traders are rewarded from a certain number to a certain number (eg. winners are from the number 1 to 30). What this means is that the prize will be divided and given to traders who rank from 1 to 30. It's not always 1 to 30, it can change. 

Dividing the prize to each trader in the winners' list doesn't mean each trader will get the same amount of money into their trading account. The trader who ended up with more money in their tournament account will be paid the most as compared to those behind him.

2. XM




XM is also one of the world's trusted brokers when it comes to forex trading founded in 2009. That is because many people like trading forex. Also, XM has the best trading and analysis tools to help you decide on your trade. XM has a minimum deposit of 10$ on a standard account.

Just like IQ Option. XM has video tutorials to help you start and master trading. XM has a sign-up bonus of $30 as of 28 November 2020. No need to deposit, just complete your profile information and you'll be able to claim the trading bonus.

Bonuses don't end with sign-ups. XM also gives you a deposit bonus of 50% of the money you deposited with. That makes XM the most rewarding and on the best brokers.

XM has a web trader app, a mobile trader app, and a windows trader app. With more than 1 million downloads on Google Play Store as of 28 November 2020.

If you have not traded before, don't start now. Remember and note that trading is a risk many people take to one's capital. Trade wisely and precisely.

ACCESS BLOCKED WEBSITES ON A SCHOOL OR PUBLIC WIFI

 “For Educational Purposes Only”

"I mean it"



At some point, we have to admit that trying to access a website with useful information is awesome. But when you don't have internet data or access, in this case, you become... You know... Said. Then a plan pops out, "There's a school/public WIFI". Plus, it's totally free! Who doesn't love free things?😉

Then comes the boring and frustrating part. You can connect to the WIFI and access some sites. But, when it comes to accessing your favorite sites, it just doesn't work. From there you'll get a message saying access has been blocked.

Unblock access

Hope you're ready. First, you should ensure that you are connected to the WIFI network that you might want to use. Secondly, you should have an app called "Kaspersky Secure Connection". Let's just call it KSC for simplification purposes. The link to the app is in blue words. After installing the app sign up, and follow this simple and straightforward procedure.

I hope you have installed the app and signed by now. You might see that the app has a limit of 300MB per day. You can upgrade it, but that's not why we are here. Next, you have to click connect and after the app shows connected go to your favorite blocked website. Is it still blocked? If not, well done. 

The KSC app is made to protect your privacy when connected to a public or school WIFI. This will prevent the collection of your data for marketing or other purposes. This makes the app very useful as it is easy to use and comes at an affordable price or less than $10 per month as of 2020/11/25.

THE BEST WAY OF PROTECTING YOUR ONLINE DATA FROM HACKERS IN 2020

DATA PRIVACY

Photo by Pixabay from Pexels


Many people around the world think that running short of internet data is the only treat when it comes to enjoying internet surfing. Random Apps doesn't think so. Do you? The second threat that many people come across on the internet is getting their data stolen or hacked. That includes private information and sensitive information being accessed by someone else without your permission. That is the most stressful and unpeaceful moment when surfing the internet. At times some people even get their card details stolen.

Did you know that there's been a solution all along? I think that you weren't aware yet. To protect your online information you have to install Kaspersky security on your device. 

Kaspersky specializes in protecting your device from being accessed by anyone who doesn't have permission to do so. Kaspersky protects both your pc and your smartphone.

Features available on Kaspersky security come in different and many features. That includes:

 Blocking webcam access from people without permission to use it

To prevent people from spying on you using your webcam. Kaspersky security blocks websites from using your webcam automatically. You'll get a notification to either accept or block that site from accessing your webcam.

Blocking ads while surfing the internet

Ads are the most interesting and annoying part of surfing the internet. Kaspersky helps you block ads on your device if you chose to do so.

Blocking computer microphone access from people without permission to use it

Some people love listening to what you are saying wherever you are. Remember that with internet access people can listen to whatever you are saying from anywhere around the world, without your permission. Kaspersky blocks that too. Unless you choose to provide that permission.

Tracking your lost device

If you lose your device. Kaspersky can help you find it with its three most awesome features. The first one is ringing it and the second one is finding it using a map. Well, the third one is locking your device just in case someone knows your password.

Protecting your kids again content they don't need to see on the internet

Sometimes kids don't choose what they watch, or you cannot choose what they must watch. With Kaspersky, your kids will watch what you want them to. Kaspersky will block apps and content that is not created for kids. Also, kids cannot unblock that. Only you will have access to unblocked such content when you are using the device.

Virus protection

Not everything we download online is safe. From PDFs, videos, and applications. Some contain a virus that makes our devices lag(respond too late). Isn't that annoying?

Data backup

Kaspersky also helps you backup your data. Ok... wait. I don't need to explain this. Ok... Fine! Data backup includes storing your information in the secure Kaspersky security storage in case you lose it. Happy now?

Password manager

The password manager helps you store passwords for different apps and websites. This ensures that you access them easily in case you forget each of them.

Securing Banking Details

To keep your banking details safe when doing online purchases, Kaspersky has a protected browser mode to ensure that hackers don't stand a chance.

ETC

If I could try to mention all Kaspersky's features I would end up creating an endless post. Thanks to a 30 free trial. With Kaspersky, you can install the software on your smartphone/ PC without having to pay for anything. That I call a good free trial. From there you can explore Kaspersky security features before deciding to purchase anything.

With Kaspersky security, hackers don't stand a chance. I also recommend this data protection service as I have been using it for a long time now and I have had no issue with it.

Does that mean I can surf the internet safely?

Yes. With Kaspersky security having blocked unauthorized access to your computer/smartphone. Nothing, and I mean nothing stands a chance of invading your privacy or stealing your data. That leaves you problem-free!


Solved!

WHY MANY PEOPLE LOVE MAKING MONEY FROM AFFILIATE PROGRAMMES?

 

Affiliate Marketing

Photo by Dominika Roseclay from Pexels


Lately, you might have searched for the best ways of making money online but, all you come across are videos about affiliate marketing. From general knowledge you might have thought/realized that affiliate marketing is boring since it includes convincing people to buy a particular product, they never thought about buying. Well, they might have thought about buying that product, although their decision wasn't that strong. Until you convince them more. Then they buy it, using your affiliate link. There's more to affiliate marking than convincing people to buy a particular product.

What is affiliate marketing?

As an affiliate, it is not a required option to buy the product yourself. All you have to do is to share the link of that product you want to promote to someone else. Now the link ensures that the person gets access to the product through you and you can track whether the person has tried the product or not.

As you might have read from the beginning of the topic. I mentioned that you might think that affiliate marketing is mostly based on convincing people to buy a particular product. To me, that is very "TRUE". The way you convince people must be more developed and unique from the product's real advert (Don't include unreal things though or exaggerate the product you are advertising). I call this a strategy. Better take note of it, it's one of the most important parts of becoming an affiliate.

How can you be a unique affiliate?

  1. Be as simple as possible!

THE BEST PLATFORMS TO LEARN PROGRAMMING | FREE AND BEGINNER FRIENDLY


The following will be a list of the best free and easy to use platforms when learning how to program. These platforms are beginner-friendly and have given a lot of people good programming skills. By now I believe that you have an idea that when we are speaking of the word "Programming". We are referring to writing a code on a computer, for the computer to respond to it. Figure 1 below shows what a program might look like. Are you ready? Let's get started!



Figure 1: Programming (Photo by Luis Gomes from Pexels)

1. Codecademy

Codecademy is one of the programming platforms that have gained recognition worldwide. Many people from different social media platforms claim that Codecademy has helped them enhance their developing skills to an extent that they ended up being hired by Google. Who doesn't want to work for Google? 

The platform (Codecademy) itself also claims that many of its students have been hired at Google. This made me see Codecademy as a powerful and useful study tool to use when you want to enhance your programming skills. Codecademy also provides students with certificates after successful completion of their chosen programming course. Although, if you are not a premium user, you cannot get some of Codecademy's awesome features, including the certificate. That I did not like. That won't stop you from trying it out. Will it?

Programming languages available at Codecademy include Python, C++, JavaScript, Kotlin, HTML&CSS, etc. If I could try to mention all of them it would take me the whole day.

2. Khan Academy

Description:

Khan Academy is a non-profit organization that provides people around the world with free education. It does not matter where you are in the world. Many people have used and found khan academy useful and resourceful. See what I did there? 

Khan Academy does not have features only for premium users, but its features are for everyone. If you want a good start in programming, then Khan Academy is one of the right places to start. Including the ones, I am about to mention. 

Programming languages that you can find on Khan Academy are HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, as of today (2020/11/13). There is a step by step procedure and all the necessary tools are provided as soon as you need them.

3. Solo Learn

Solo Learn is a multi-platform app/website. Can you guess why? Well, that's because it contains content for both premium and non-premium users. Also, Solo Learn has a numerous number of different programming languages you can choose from. Is that fair enough? If your guessing wasn't anywhere close to that, I apologize. You'll get it next time.

Solo learn is mostly operated on android devices. There is a web version if you might not feel comfortable using the Solo Learn app. I consider Solo Learn as one of the best ways to get started as a beginner. Due to the availability of support from other users and in-app code editors. The most interesting part is that you will be given a certificate once you successfully complete each course on your chosen programming language. That sounds awesome!

Programming languages available on Solo Learn are HTML&CSS, Python, Kotlin, SQL, PHP, JavaScript, Java, C++, etc. There is also a community you can join on Solo Learn. Where people around the world share different ideas around using each programming language to create something useful.

HOW TO GET MORE USERS ON YOUR BLOG, CHANNELS, GROUPS, ETC?


Introduction

Getting as many users in your blog, YouTube channel, or group is not as easy as someone might think. Today, what you are about to read will not only be about how to get more users, but it will also be about how to make people visit your platform again and again. Follow the rules I am about to give you and you'll be on your way to getting as many people to your blog as you want.


How to get many people into your channel?

Inviting as many people to your platform is as easy as ABC. Remember that inviting users is different from getting users. Inviting users is all about introducing people to your content. All it takes is creating a catchy title for your content and spreading it to other groups and channels. Take note though, that your content title must not be misleading. You will read about that later, it's just a few sentences ahead. Moving on we have google trends.


Google Trends


Google trends is a platform by Google that records the most search online topics daily, weekly, or monthly. This helps developers or content creators like you find the most searched and focused on topics by people around the world. Using this platform helps you get as many daily users as possible.
Now that you wrote a catchy title for your content and used google trends, how do you get people to come back again and again?


How do you get people to stay?

It is almost obvious that, when you wrote something with a catchy title, many people will click it. But, what about next time, do you always have to go look for people again and again? Well, to that I'll say "NO". When people have seen that your content title matches what they found about your content. They will keep on wanting more of your content. As long as your content is not mixed up (If it's about cars, only post things related to cars), relevant, not exaggerated, not clickbait. The most common thing people hate is exaggerated content. That is not any different from promising people that you'll give them $200 each if they subscribe to your content, knowing that you don't have that $200.


Boring?

Avoid posting long, meaningless, and off-topic content. Understanding that many content readers do not like to read. Writing long and meaningless content creates frustration for the reader. Then that's when he/she won't come back. Make sure that your content has an order. Create headings, subtitles, and bold words to make emphasis important and catchy words.


Summary

Remember to not lose focus. Don't mislead your users, post something relevant, do not mix your post (Organise your posts). Remember that posting something irrelevant to your channel, blog or group will not help you gain users, but it may lead to some users leaving your platform since they may not be in favor of that content. Growing an online or offline platform was never easy, even for the biggest companies in the world. Don't rush things (Post about your blog, channel, and group often in the same groups). Posting your content on other groups often may lead to some users getting annoyed by your content or even banning you from the group. Nothing starts big, you have to start somewhere. Never hold on to that though. By that I mean do not feel comfortable being low. Work hard and you shall achieve your desired goal. Me
