  1. Thought it might be an idea to start this ?
    We all from time to time have techs questions, with such a vast array of members I'm sure someone will have an answer

  14. Techy tip #1
    iPhone users, as we all know flash player does not work on a hand held iOS device.
    Puffin Web Browser on the App Store
    The link will take you to the App Store © to install the Puffin Browser, there are others out there but this one does what it says on the tin

  15. Techy tip #2
    Here's a fun one.....nossy spouse/partner? Always asking where you've been? Caught them browsing through your phone?
    Did you know your iOS hand held device keeps tabs on you?

    Try this: Privacy>Location Services>System Services>Frequent Locations>Turn-Off

    Stay Sneaky

    I'll also add to this if I may;
    iOS photo locations - aka Geotagging... Turn on or off. I personally *highly* recommend setting this to OFF, otherwise people can easily track your location;

    Settings>Privacy>Location Services>Camera>Select if you want to use geotagging “While using the app” or “Never.”
    I highly recommend never and not allowing geotagging on your photos and videos etc.. ;)

    Yes I know, I mean are we doing that next? I'm all ears if so.. :D
    Agreed though, this is a must if people value privacy. We have a LOT of connections here via VPN's and Proxies.. (y)

    As it happens, iOS9 has made one hell of a difference on battery life on my iPhone 5!
    Incredible difference... ;)
