The Facebook Messenger app has some privacy issues

The issue of Facebook and personal privacy has come to the fore with the whole Cambridge Analytica debacle.

#deletefacebook is trending on other free-to-users social networks that certainly wouldn’t ever allow a thing like this to happen with user data. 😉

We’ve covered our fair share of security issues here on the Ting Blog, including how to avoid phishing schemes, how to keep your data safe on free Wi-Fi and even how to flag unwanted spam and scam calls.

Taking parental control in the digital age

Parenting has never been easy but in the digital age, it can be harder than ever. For instance, without parental control over online content, it is surprisingly easy for children to see to something you’ll wish they hadn’t.

The good news is tech companies are catching on and are quickly rolling out new options to give parents better control over what their kids have access to watch.

Let’s take a look at what Google and Amazon are doing to protect your kids.

Run a small business? You can save the Internet

The first week of May is National Small Business Week. If you operate a small business or startup, we’d like to enlist your help.

You may already have already heard that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) plans to repeal net neutrality laws. In fact, the FCC has already voted to do so. Repealing these regulations will directly impact small businesses by allowing ISPs to create fast lanes and data caps, block specific sites or apps, throttle Internet speeds and charge exorbitant tolls. It would give the biggest corporations an even greater advantage over new startups and small mom-and-pop businesses.

The Senate will soon vote on the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to block the FCC’s repeal. Small business owners and net neutrality supporters can pressure our Senators to do the right thing and pass the CRA.
