Although WhatsApp has supported end-to-end encryption since 2016, in some cases 1,000 contract employees using Facebook’s dedicated software can read messages sent from one user to another. When someone sends a message, even in a private chat, the AI algorithm looks for suspicious activity related to terrorism, child abuse, and so on. In case of detection, the AI transmits the received message along with four previous messages to a real person for consideration.
The user can then be blocked or included in the watchlist. Unencrypted messages from users on the “proactive” list can be read along with other user data such as user groups, phone number, unique phone ID, connection status message, battery level, and signal strength.
In short, WhatsApp end-to-end encryption may not be as strong as the developers claim.
iPhone 14 Pro Max running out of RAM? New Apple lost to the flagship Samsung due to the fact that two applications were unloaded from memory
The iPhone 14 Pro Max is finally brought head to head against Samsung’s flagship to see who’s faster. In this case, Galaxy Z Fold4 acted on behalf of the Korean giant.
The comparison was carried out by the authors of the PhoneBuff channel, who use a robotic arm, thus getting rid of the human factor.
The first lap was head-to-head, but at the end Fold4 lagged behind a bit. On the second lap, the Apple flagship was in the lead for a long time, but in the end it turned out that the iPhone unloaded Microsoft Excel and Word from memory, it had to load them again, and the Samsung flagship was ahead.
As a result, it was Fold4 that won, but the difference was as small as on the first lap, so in general the winner here can only be called conditionally.
It’s cooler than Apple and Microsoft: Intel introduced the Unison program for synchronizing messages and photos between iPhone, Android and PC
Intel has announced a new program called Unison that will allow you to connect iOS and Android smartphones to PCs with Intel processors. This will make it possible to actually transfer all the main functions of smartphones to a PC. This program was shown along with a PC with a sliding screen.
The new program will allow you to make and receive calls on your PC using your smartphone, send and receive text messages, transfer photos and files, and receive various notifications.
It’s somewhat similar to the Link to Phone app in Windows 10 and Windows 11, but Unison offers more options. If Link to Phone only works with Samsung smartphones and some other brands, then the new system will appear for all mobile devices. At the same time, the iPhone version will be slightly less functional – this applies to text messaging and managing third-party applications. All this is due to the restrictions put forward by the company from Cupertino.
At the first stage, the new feature will be available only to owners of laptops based on 12th generation processors released by Acer, HP and Lenovo. These laptops are part of the Intel Evo program. After the release of models on chips of the 13th generation, the list will expand.
Note that there is a similar one on the MacBook, where you can synchronize data with the iPhone. Now the same is expected on Windows.
