Companies are Tracking You On Facebook!

Do you know that many companies can track you on Facebook?

Yeah well let's put an end to that crap right now

Ok so while you are using Facebook, you are giving many companies a lot of information about yourself which it is selling to advertisers in one form or another. Do you want to know who the companies are and want to block them?

Most people forget that when they download or sign up for an app or website using their Facebook login, they're giving those companies a direct look into their Facebook profiles and some of their personal data. That can often include your email addresses, phone numbers, even your current location. However, if you want to know which companies can peep into your Facebook account, follow the steps below.

Step 1: Click on the Facebook's Settings button > Settings.

Step 2: Click on Apps.

Step 3: A Facebook Apps setting page will appear on the screen. Now click on the "Show All Apps" and you will see a list of all the apps that you use. Therefore, you get to know which app makers have the ability to peep into your Facebook account.

Step 4: For each app, there is an "Edit" function at the right side on that page (above image). By clicking any of the Edit function, you will be able to know what the app needs to provide you its service. If the app needs your basic info, that means it can view more info of you including your friends and your profile picture! But you can control this information by clicking on the "x" symbol (beside Edit) to delete the app's access to your Facebook account. If you want the app not to peep into your account, then simply remove the app.

It's better you check which apps you want to peep into your Facebook account. It's a bit time-consuming, but you can protect yourself from giving people or the app maker free data about yourself

Duck a What?...See who is after Google's search dominance

What sets DuckDuckGo apart is the claim that it doesn’t track your IP, or your search history. There are many other great features, like the ability to see official websites before Wikipedia answers, the ability to search directly on YouTube, Facebook, Amazon, etc…

When you do a search from DuckDuckGo's website or one of its mobile apps, it doesn't know who you are. There are no user accounts. Your IP address isn't logged by default. The site doesn't use search cookies to keep track of what you do over time or where else you go online. It doesn't save your search history.

When you click on a link in DuckDuckGo's results, those websites won't see which search terms you used. The company even has its own Tor exit relay, allowing Tor users to search DuckDuckGo with less of a performance lag.

Refresh Windows 8 without affecting your files.

Windows 8 includes a feature called Refresh your PC that allows you to refresh your computer without affecting your files. This can be useful to recover from a problem. The Refresh option is primarily a repair method - a way to return your computer to a known good state.

You can find the Push Button Reset options in PC Settings under General, near the bottom of the list of options.

If you choose the refresh option, you’ll be prompted with an explanation of what’s about to happen. Click through this full-screen notification and Windows will be re installed, with your personal data, personalization's and Metro apps all backed up and reapplied to the new install automatically.

The entire process takes just several minutes, though anything added by your PC maker will stretch things out a bit. In a test of my Ultra book, which was first reset as described below, it took about 10 minutes for the refresh process, including moving about 8 GB of data back and forth.

If you choose to reset, you’ll be prompted with a much shorter explanation as you’re essentially performing a clean install of the OS,

Sync Everywhere with Windows 8

If you've just upgraded to Windows 8, then you might still be using your old user accounts—and you may not realize the features available with the new Windows id s. Sign in with this ID (it's the same one you use for Microsoft services like Sky Drive and Hot mail/

It will make syncing emails and photos easier, and it will transfer your Windows 8 settings and preferences instantly to any other location you sign in from. If you have Windows 8 machines in the home and in the office, for example, then this is a quick and painless way of keeping your preferences, desktop wallpaper, Internet bookmarks and other data constant across machines. 

You can also specify what is and what isn't synced in the Windows 8 settings, if you want to keep your personalization's without syncing your passwords.
