Office Web apps from Microsoft now renamed as “Office Online”, can be found at Office.com

Microsoft joining the ‘change bandwagon” rolled out a new announcement for its existing version of Office Web apps, which will take place not anytime later, but today.

Including Apps in the name gets pretty confusing for users, as it’s not something users can install. Also, these cannot be bought from an app store. What’s needed for using these is a web browser. So, what’s it now called, the answer is Office Online!

Apps might have made users get confused, but a larger chunk still remains unaware about the online version of Office through SharePoint of OneDrive. But, from now onwards Office.com is the dedicated podium for MS office on the Web, covering PowerPoint, Word, Excel and OneNote.

A Microsoft account is still quintessential to get access to the free versions of office and to automatically save files on OneDrive. A slew of Office templates have also been added to the online mix, most of which you might find familiar from the desktop software that exists.

Meanwhile, the app switcher now entails PowerPoint, Excel, Word and OneNote, along with OneDrive and Outlook. It means you are now free from shifting from one application to another.

It’s not the first rebrand from Microsoft recently and it’s just six months after the same lost a court battle with UKs satellite broadcaster, BSkyB, over the use of its name SkyDrive. Microsoft also made an announcement that it’s making a change in OneDrive, which is the cloud-based storage device.

Microsoft meanwhile is looking to lure any previous defectors of Google Docs back on board or is attempting to simply make users aware about the online version and its omnipresence.

Microsoft believes that the new title with “online” will be successful and more accurate in reflecting what Web apps is and was released to fulfill actually.

The easy presence on Office.com is another offering that will prompt many more Microsoft users to stagger across the same and conveniently add the URL to their bookmarks.

Wondering what all Google can know? Answer is your location via GPS, other information through your phone logs. So, if you wish to hide your personal information from Google, here are some steps which can help you do so, easily.
  1. Move to the Google Dashboard, which gives access to all Google Services like Google Plus, YouTube and more, where you can control the privacy level. This helps in limiting the amount of info shared publically.
  2. Cookies keep accumulating in your PC, and you thus need to clean these regularly. As Google uses them as a unique identifier, to collect information and give advertisers access to your contact info.
  3. VPN aka Virtual Private Network, helps you experience anonymity while surfing the web, which means you can now stay hidden from not just Google, but hackers and others.
  4. Switch to the Incognito or the InPrivate option, which is a secured browsing feature that helps in protecting your privacy over the web. It can be activated in Chrome, Mozilla and Internet Explorer as well.

  8. Choose what you wish to share on the various social profiles via Google, so, don’t be an open book to the world and make changes now on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and others.
  9. Stay away from Google search, we know it may sound absurd and tough, but doing so will help in decreasing the hassle of going public, significantly.
  10. Google+ Chrome combo must be a complete no-no, especially if using this on your phone. If logged in, Google can be unknowingly following you everywhere you go. When on your home PC, at your work computer or any place else.
  11. Avoid adding any details in the first place, to keep away from seeing your info being shared at places you never wish. It’s better to not do it, rather than feel culpable later.

Kaspersky says Facebook wishes to read SMSs and other confidential info of users

A leading security brand, Kaspersky, recently said that Facebook, the leading social network, has easy access to the confidential information about users, including the multimedia and text messages through the mobile app.

The Social Network Giant, Facebook, according to Kaspersky can easily access the sensitive information about users and their personal text messages, by the use of the Android mobile platform.
Since past few days, there have been constant scrutinies over Facebook having access to the SMSs of users. This feature has been embedded in the latest Android app by Facebook that has become a matter of concern for some users.

Facebook provides a two-factor authentication, which ensures added security, thus it’s good of Facebook presenting users with this alternative. It’s thus recommended that users before installing any new app for the first time must carefully check about the permissions same is requesting, most experts at Kaspersky and other security companies suggest this measure to users.

When installing the Android mobile phone app for Facebook, the same asks users to allow permission to Read the Text Messages, including the MMS as well as the SMS.

Facebook, on the other hand says, that if a user adds a phone number to their account, this gives them the permission to automatically confirm the user’s phone number by finding the confirmation code, which is send in the form of a text message.

Kaspersky raised concerns about the word “automatic”, which is used in the permission that is asked for by Facebook. The chief concern lies in the word, ‘automatically’. Facebook must do something about this permission and must ask users to manually update the same, rather than doing this on its own.

Facebook turned 10 on 4th Feb 2014 and it recently announced the quarterly results too. Considering the mobile phone users, Facebook in the last quarter saw a significant increase in the same. The company said to have seen a 39% increase from the last year and now the monthly active user count on mobile for Facebook has reached the 945 million count. Also, it’s been shown that about 296 million Facebook users use their cell phones only, instead of the PC, to access their Facebook accounts.

Words You Should Never Use As Your Passwords

Passwords, the words that are believed to add safety to the many tasks we do, are vulnerable to insecurities too. A new study has revealed that passwords aren’t too secured. Whenever a hacker tries to hack an account, they always try passwords, which you think are rather difficult to guess. It’s not due to the common passwords that users share, but the similar habits, which make it easier for hackers to crack passwords and enter systems, which are otherwise considered too secured. So, let us see what are the most common habits we follow, when choosing a password for our email account, banking login and when accessing other such websites.
  1. Pet names are a very common word, most of us use, as these are easy to remember.
  2. Important dates of our life are another popular password choice, which entails birthdays, anniversaries and other such dates.
  3. The name of your child, or some other family members’ name and also your nick name are choices that appear very popular.
  4. A favorite place or the birth place of you can also be a common choice for passwords.
  5. In fact, the word ‘password’ itself is used by many as their password.
From the above mentioned list, except password no word is actually a password. We often believe these words are difficult to track, but when entering your account these are the information hackers most commonly insert. All this information can be easily acquired from your social networking accounts, obviously your child’s name, pet’s name, birthday, anniversary, birth place, holiday spot are all mentioned there, so even if you think its private; the information is already public.

Using all this information is not always wrong and guessable, but the incidences are surely high. The other things that can lead to password thefts are our habits. The habit of sharing our passwords with our friends, colleagues and other people is often an easy way of inviting that uninvited trouble of account hacking. Additionally, many people have the habit of writing down the password on a sticky note and pasting it close to the workstation, it’s specially seen among people who have the habit of not memorizing things a lot. Instead of writing it on a sticky note, it’s advised to write it in your cell phone or a more secured place to avoid your password going publicly known.

What should be used then?
This is the most obvious question that might have popped in your mind after reading the above text. The answer is use a strong password, which is a combination of numbers, letters, but not a name followed by an important date of your life. Using passwords that are not related to you or your family is adapting a safer approach.

Always bear in mind, a secured password is the key to online security and you should always encourage people you know to ensure threats and thefts get minimized.
