Masbad: Quick Hits 50

Wacky Tech

THIS will most likely be the last “Quick Hits” I’ll write. Hopefully, this is just a temporary thing. Anyway, here goes this week’s Quick Hits.

Online security for the home or business

If there’s a device that I come across with that promises security for your home while you’re online, it’s something that will definitely catch my attention. Take for example this device called Firewalla. It’s an Intrusion Detection System as well as an Intrusion Prevention System. And, of course, there’s a whole slew of features that you get with the device. What’s keeping my attention glued to is how it’s such a physically small device and installation can’t be any more simpler than plugging it.

It’s funny though that this has been in the market for the last three years already. How did I miss this? Oh well. Here’s an intro video from their YouTube channel.

Leaked passwords alert on iOS 14

If you’ve heard from time to time from your tech nerd friends, you’d probably known about passwords getting leaked in the dark net and then sold off to the highest bidder. Most of the time, we won’t even know that our passwords from the online services that we use are part of whatever leaks. That’s what iCloud Keychain seeks to address when it comes out in iOS 14. If you’re the type of iOS user who regularly saves passwords into Keychain, I’ll recommend that you turn on this feature when you get iOS 14 on your Apple device.
