There are people who really value the type of information they share on Facebook and sometimes, want such information to be viewed by some select individuals. Facebook understanding and much like reading the minds of its users created a feature which allows one select an audience that can view their status updates. This means that when you decide to enable this feature, your posts and status updates will only be seen by those you choose. Do you like this feature and want to enable it? Follow the guide below to enable it whenever you are posting something on your Facebook account to keep off those you don’t want seeing your posts from viewing them.

How to Change Microsoft Edge Default Search Engine From Bing to Another


Microsoft Edge


If your computer is running on Microsoft Windows 10 operating system, then you must have noticed that the operating system came bundled with another browser besides the popular Internet Explorer found in the previous versions of Windows. The new browser which is referred to as the Microsoft Edge somehow to me is far off better than Internet Explorer which I find annoying at times. Probably one day, Microsoft might decide to drop Internet Explorer for the Microsoft Edge considering the fact that it is a little more promising and somehow more effective.

Have you used Microsoft Edge to search the web before? Microsoft Edge browser uses Bing as its default search engine, but it is possible to change that if you so wish. In this guide, I shall be showing you guys how to change the default search engine in Microsoft Edge so that whenever you key in a search query, it opens in the search engine of your choice. Edge basically can use any search engine that supports OpenSearch as its default. So if you are interested in changing the Microsoft Edge default search engine to one you prefer, then follow the simple guide below;
  • Launch the Microsoft Edge Browser and enter the URL of the search engine you wish to make the default.
  • Once in the search engine’s homepage (interface), locate and click on the Microsoft Edge’s Menu button.
Microsoft Edge - menu
 
  • From the drop down menu that will appear, select Settings as indicated in the image below.

Microsoft Edge - settings

  • Scroll down the Settings panel to Advanced Settings and click on View Advanced Settings just as I have shown using the image below.

Microsoft Edge - view advanced settings
 
  • Once the Advanced Settings panel opens, scroll down the panel to the option that reads “Search in the address bar with” and click on the drop down arrow button below it.

Microsoft Edge - drop button

  • Next select <Add New> from the “Search in the address bar” drop down option.

Microsoft Edge - add new
 
  • If you have visited popular search engines before using this browser, you will notice that some of them are already in the Add New section of the “Search in the address bar” panel. Simply select the one you want to make the default search engine for Microsoft Edge from the list provided and then click on Set as Default just as I have pointed out in the image below.  
 
Microsoft Edge - add as default

  • If the search engine you want to make default for Microsoft Edge is not yet listed, just enter the search engines URL in Edge’s address bar. Once the search engines page opens, you should see it showing among the options of search engines to set as default.

How to Use the New WhatsApp Text-Based Status Update Feature



WhatsApp Text Status Update - EasyTins

Some couple of days ago I wrote about the return of text-based WhatsApp status update. I just realized that some people might still find using this improved feature difficult as it was not found on their last WhatsApp before the update was performed. Basically, if you have been using the photo and video based update feature, I expect you will not find it difficult using the text-based feature.

To perform a text-based status update which I want to believe is easy but just have to write about since there are people who would still want to be shown how it is used, follow the simple guide below.
  • On your WhatsApp interface, tap on Status which should take you to the status interface where you will see the statuses of your friends that has not expired (has not exceeded 24 hours). 

WhatsApp Text Status Update - status

  • Locate and tap on the pencil like icon found at the bottom right corner of the status interface just as illustrated in the image below. 

WhatsApp Text Status Update - pencil icon
 
  • By tapping on the pencil like icon, you will get to the text-based status update interface. Enter your status in the space provided (i.e. the space which reads “Type a Status”). Basically, you can just start typing the status once you click on the pencil icon and the text-based status update interface has appeared. 

WhatsApp Text Status Update - type status

  • Customize your text by tapping on the smiley, font, and color icons found at the bottom left corner of the text-based status update interface. 

WhatsApp Text Status Update - customize
  
  • Once done, tap on the Send Icon to post the text-based status.

WhatsApp Text Status Update - post

Which do you prefer? The text-based option of updating your WhatsApp status or the photo and video option.

Glo USSD Code to Buy Airtime From Any Bank at ₦0 Network Charge



Glo Simple Recharge


Have you run out of credit to call and text? Far from a shop outlet where you can go to purchase airtime? Don’t want to pay 15% to 30% interest fee for borrowing credit from Glo? Basically the only solution here is to top-up or recharge directly from your bank using the different bank USSD codes as I have provided in my post All Nigerian Banks Mobile Banking USSD Codes, which requires you have a minimum of ₦5 in the registered SIM so as to be able to use the service. Although I said the only solution is to top-up or recharge from your bank using the different USSD codes as provided by the banks, what do you do when it happens that what you have in your SIM is just ₦0? No idea right?

Well here is a solution for you. This is strictly for those of you guys who have and use a Glo Nigeria SIM. Whenever you find yourself in such situation as described above, simply dial *805# which will give you access to several Nigerian banks from which you can purchase the airtime at no cost at all. This service is yet to work with all Nigeria banks which means that you might not see your bank included in the list of banks partnering with Glo Nigeria to offer the service to its clients.

The list of banks partnering with Glo Nigeria to offer this service to its clients as at the time of this writing are;
  • First Bank Nigeria
  • Access Bank
  • Zenith Bank
  • Fidelity Bank
  • Sterling Bank
  • Skye Bank
  • Unity Bank
  • Keystone Bank
  • Ecobank
  • Stanbic IBTC Bank
  • Union Bank
  • Jaiz Bank
  • Heritage Bank
  • First City Monument Bank (FCMB)
  • UBA

If your bank is not among the list of banks as listed here, you can still try the code to confirm if your bank has been added to the number of banks partnering with Glo Nigeria to this effect.

How to Mute Irrelevant and Annoying Email Conversations on Gmail


I find it very annoying seeing irrelevant mails in my inbox and considering the fact that some of this mails just keeps coming without an option to unsubscribe or opt-out is what makes it more annoying. I have severally in the past entered my email id in forms which I never knew were created by spammers only to start seeing all manner of mails coming into my mailbox.

Although some of this mailers have an opt-out or unsubscribe link which when clicked on, automatically removes the said email id from their mailing list, many do not give users this flexibility which eventually started making the Gmail’s mute button for people who are using Google mail service very popular. In this guide, I shall be showing you guys how to mute any conversations or mails you find annoying in your Gmail inbox. Doing this doesn’t not necessarily mean that you will stop receiving mails from the said sender, in fact you will still get the same in flow of mails from the sender but this time, you won’t be able to see the mails because you have put them on mute.

To mute irrelevant emails as a Gmail user, simply follow the easy guide below;
  •  Locate the email you want to mute and select it by clicking on the checkbox by the left of it just as I have indicated in the image below. 

Gmail Mute - check button

  • Next click on the More drop down button. 

Gmail Mute - More

  • Finally select Mute from the drop down button list and that is it. 

Gmail Mute - Mute
 
  • Once that is done, you should now notice that the mail is no longer visible in your inbox because you have chosen to mute it.
  • To unmute an email, simply enter is:muted in the Gmail search box, click on the search button and repeat the steps above but this time when you get to the drop down list you shall see unmute instead of mute. Just click on the unmute to begin seeing mails from that email id again.

Gmail Mute - is:muted

What is your take on this feature? Are there better ways to stop receiving irrelevant and annoying mail conversation from senders who has no opt-out option for users to stop receiving mails from them?

Basic Differences Between An Original Samsung Galaxy S8 and a Fake


Original Samsung Galaxy S8

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is a very popular device right now and there are lots of people who wants to own one and considering the desperation of people and how expensive the device is, some stores have decided to help out by making the device available at an affordable price as compared to the price found in a Samsung store. As an average individual who doesn’t earn much, I guess you will definitely choose to purchase from such stores where the device is sold for a very low price as compared to its original price as found in a Samsung store.

The fact that a Galaxy S8 doesn’t come for cheap isn’t much of a surprise, because, after all, we’re talking about a smartphone offering the latest technologies and a premium design. Unfortunately, as we always have it, there are clones out there for grabs and when you decide to go purchase this awesome device from a store other than an approved one, don’t be surprised if you get one with completely different specs from the that advertised for the device.

Basically, it is usually very difficult at times to tell a clone Samsung Galaxy S8 from an original but with the little information I am going to be providing here regarding the expected differences between them, you should be able to know which is which. So when going to purchase a Samsung Galaxy S8 or given one, here are few to look out for to know a which is a clone and one that is an original.

  • An original Samsung Galaxy S8 has a very distinctive curved Super AMOLED display which reaches the edges. Any Samsung Galaxy S8 that has some black ugly bordered edges is most definitely a clone and should be seen as one.
  • The presence of a USB Type-C port at the bottom of an original Samsung Galaxy S8 is something you can’t miss as compared to the Micro-USB port normally found in older models of the Galaxy family.
  • Original Samsung Galaxy S8 have a Bixby button on the left side of the device just beneath the volume buttons which when pressed activates the phone’s personal assistant. A fake might have this button which definitely won’t work when pressed.
  • An out of the box Samsung Galaxy S8 should be running Android 7.0 (Nougat) while its clone would probably still be running Android 6.0 (Marshmallow).
The above are the basic differences you might find between a Samsung Galaxy S8 and its clone. I will advise you buy from an approved store which offers warranty to avoid purchasing a clone or complete fake of the awesome Samsung Galaxy S8.

How to Choose Friends to Contact if Locked Out of Facebook Account



The passwords used to login into the different web pages we have registered to are like keys to the several doors in our homes. Once you lock the room in this case log out, you wont be allowed in again unless you have the key (password) to the door. If in any case you have lost the key or forgotten it somewhere, the only way you can get access to the room is to go back to wherever it is you misplaced it and get it back. Now assuming you are always fond of misplacing your keys and maybe aren’t used to keeping it safe, you can just decide to give your neighbor a spare so that when ever you happen to forget yours, you can always go to your neighbor's place to get the spare and have access to the house.

Password acts just like the keys being that without them you wont be given access to your profile page in a website. We are most times occupied with several things that we tend to constantly forget our passwords. Retrieving or creating new passwords can somehow be very frustrating at times and Facebook knowing how strenuous this can get has put up a feature which allows users have access to their account even when they have forgotten their password. Just like the instance I gave above where you give your neighbor a spare key to your home for easy access whenever you tend to forget or misplace yours, Facebook created a feature which allows you choose friends to contact if you ever need help getting into your Facebook account when locked out.

This feature is awesome and I think everyone should have this in place in case they ever get locked out of their account for any reason. To choose friends to contact if you get locked out of your account, follow the simple steps below;
  • Log into your Facebook account and and click on the little arrow down icon just as illustrated using the image below. 

Facebook-arrow down icon

  • Once the arrow down icon is clicked, locate and click on Settings in the drop down menu.

Facebook-settings


  • Next locate and click on Security and Login.

Facebook-security and login

  • Scroll down to the option that reads "Choose 3 to 5 friends to contact if you are locked out" which is found under the title Setting up extra security and click on it. 

Facebook-choose friends to contact

  • Click on Choose Friends if you have not already done this before.

Facebook-choose friends

  • A new pop-up page will appear on which you are expected to go through the information provided as regards choosing a trusted contact. Click on Choose Trusted Contacts once done going through the information.

Facebook-choose trusted contacts

  • On the pop-up page, enter the names of the trusted friends you wish to contact whenever you are locked out of your Facebook account and then click on Confirm. You are allowed to choose between 3 to 5 good friends that you can contact easily without stress via phone.

Facebook-trsted contacts



  • If this is done successfully, you will notice a new text appearing just below the Choose 3 to 5 friends to contact if you are locked out informing you that the feature is on.

Facebook-on
  • It is possible to remove these friends if you so wish by clicking on the Remove All link just as indicated in the image below.

Facebook-remove trsted contacts

Once this is done and you ever get locked out of your account, Facebook will give each of the friends you have chosen a special piece of a security code. You will need to contact those friends for each piece of the code to get back into your account. Don’t worry about your friends accessing your account because only you can login with the code – your friends can’t.

What do you think about this new feature? Hope it helps someday.

How to Enable Desktop Notification for Gmail

The email service offered by Google is one of the most popular in the world today being that it is free as compared to some of its competitors offering similar service. Over the years, Google has been making so many improvements to their platforms and Gmail was not left out. One of these improvements is the Gmail desktop notification which when enabled makes it possible for users to get a desktop notifications whenever there is a new mail sent to their inbox.

In order to be able to receive this notifications directly on your desktop, you will have to turn on the service first. For those of you guys who do not know how this is done, follow the guide below to do so;

Gmail Settings

  • Scroll down the settings page to Desktop Notifications. Notice there are three radio buttons with the button Mail notifications off already selected. Enable mail notifications by selecting the radio button for New mail notifications. You can decide to receive notification for only important mails by selecting its radio button but I will advise you pick the New mail notifications since some important mails might sometimes not be recognized by Gmail as important (basically because you have not marked it as important).

Gmail mail notification

  • Finally scroll down the page and click on Saves Changes to apply the change you just made to your account.

Gmail Save Changes

Note: You will only be able to receive mail notifications if you have the popular Google Chrome browser installed on your PC.
