Social-Media-Nominee


Yeah! I know it sounds a strange thing to say that what will happen about your social media and other accounts in case you face sudden death. Actually, all your social media, email and other accounts are also considered as property so as per respective company’s policy you can set any family member to handle account after the death. Each and every company have different kind of policy to hand over the account right to any other nominated person. Most of the company doesn’t share login detail. Recently, there was news belonging to China that a toddler locked iPhone just entering the wrong PIN again and again. As result, it got locked for 48 years! She went to the Apple store but the company did not provide any login data. They gave the option to wipe and restore a backup file or wait for 48 years. The phone was of her husband who passed away without sharing the password to her. There were all her old photographs, important notes and documents those she didn’t want to lose. She is still figuring out a way to get her iPhone back to normal without losing her pictures and contacts. Perhaps, you may laugh after going through this story but we should take it seriously. This can happen with us or our family member. The service provider never compromises with its security. 

The search engine giant Google can do three things for you. First - Close the account of a deceased user. Second - Accept request for funds from a deceased user's account and third – provide data from a deceased user's account. From this link, you can submit a request regarding a deceased user’s account. 


Some of the services give the facility to appoint a legacy contact who will maintain your account with limited power. For Google, going through inactive account manager you can set such options. It is recommended that you should set certain parameters like to whom Google should contact in case inactiveness of your account for a long time. For that, you can redirect your web browser to - https://myaccount.google.com/inactive

As I told earlier, Apple won’t provide you with any information easily but it will help you to shut down the deceased person’s account. For that, you can visit their official support page - https://support.apple.com/en-gb/contact 

Microsoft has a next-of-kin process, which can provide representatives with a deceased person’s data. For that, you can send an email to msrecord@microsoft.com.


If your beloved one is on the LinkedIn than you can demand here to remove profile by providing some information like member name, LinkedIn profile URL, email address, relationship, date passed away etc. 

The microblogging platform Twitter can also remove the account and provide information about the person who is no more. The twitter’s “privacy policy inquiry ” helps four-way. 1. A person can request twitter account information. 2. Persona can report an underage person’s account. 3. A person can request for deactivation of deceased person’s account. 4. A person can ask a question regarding privacy policy on Twitter. You can point your web browser to - https://help.twitter.com/forms/privacy

On the Facebook, to request removal of account of the deceased person you have to prove that he was your family member or relatives. The documents like power of attorney, birth certificate, last will and testament, estate letter, memorial card or obituary shall be produced. The information should be matched with the account holders account information. Then after you can submit a request for profile removal. For more detail you may take a look over here https://www.facebook.com/help/1518259735093203?helpref=faq_content

You can post an official special request for medically incapacitated or deceased person's account.  Visit - https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/228813257197480 

It’s better to set any nominee behind us to remove our data securely otherwise wrong hand may misuse it and lead to any serious problem to your beloved one. It is said precaution is better than cure.

The Boombox can also connect to multiple smartphones at a time so you don't have to DJ by your lonesome with a 20,000 milliamp hours battery onboard it can also charge your gadgets for days.

The latter two are linked to the mobile devices controls so there is no separate volume control when paired with the boombox lacking track skipping buttons we had to double tap play-pause to move forward a track the connect plus button is for pairing with other JBL speakers in stereo. Overall the JBL boombox as a monstrous portable speaker that not only gets loud but stays pretty crisp when pumping the volume it's heavy and not the easiest thing to carry around but it's rugged enough to handle any pool or tailgate party.

The new safe and faster Indian web browser :Epic

By Jitendra Indave On Sunday, September 16, 2018
Epic-Browser
With the most web browser, the user requires to use extra add-ons to avoid being tracked online. There is a special type of web explorer that comes with this kind of functionalities. The “Epic” is the web browser that keeps you secure and private by blocking all trackers, third-party cookies and ads; redirecting your searches through a proxy server so no one can know what kind of websites you are surfing.  This web browser uses an encrypted connection (where possible) when user visit website and also clean history, cookies and all browsing data at the end of each session. The excellent piece of option which I like most is hiding IP address with a single click only. Nobody knows from where your browser coming from.

A quick view on features

Always-On Private Browsing


It is similar to the incognito mode found in other web browsers like Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera or Firefox. You don’t need to switch it manually cause by default it is on. It means always on private browsing.

Trackers & Third-party Cookies Blocked

As per the report of Epic around 80% websites monitors and access all your browsing data. They keep monitoring what websites and what time those are being surfed by you. Later the related company sells data or use it to show you targeted ads. The Epic blocks such trackers or third-party elements those perform such task. I have personally tested, while visiting certain blogs and websites it removed elements like share buttons as it traces user behaviour of surfing. That is a really helpful option to be secure while surfing the websites.

Integrated Video Downloading

A dedicated button with down arrow symbol found in the right top corner, the below close button that can be used to download audio or videos from the websites like  YouTube, Vimeo, Soundcloud, Facebook and many others.

Encrypted Data Preference

It always gives first preference to “HTTPS” if it is available. So that data may through the encrypted channel.  All other browsers will not attempt. If the website owner has set redirection to https then that will lead to https connection otherwise unsecured connection is viewed by the users.

One-Click Encrypted Proxy

There is a red button available in the address bar by pressing it will enable epic’s built-in proxy. This hides the user IP address (with a U.S -based IP) and encrypts all the data when the user wants to be very private.

Search Protection

Epic automatically loads search engines via its built-in proxy because search engines track user by it’s  IP address. Generally, search engine traces using the IP address of the user but this will prevent search engine to trace IP address. 

Unified Button

If you are not able to view pages properly due to the restriction of Epic then you can modify those setting manually as per your requirement so that you can view a proper page with content. You just need to press a small “umbrella” symbol a short menu will appear where you can set show/hide plug-in, data, tracker etc.

The only limitation for Epic is that there are only limited numbers of add-ons available. Perhaps its dull design may not attract you but it has powerful functionalities. In term of speed, it is faster compared to other browsers.


In short, I will say that it’s powerful features keep you secure and private from the tracking methods like cookies, IP address, HTML 5 storage, Evercookies, Flash cookies and Fingerprinting. Just install at least once you will feel the different experience.
