[Update: Now in stable] Authy adds fingerprint support for app protection in latest beta

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

The internet is a dangerous place, and two-factor authentication (2FA) is one of the best ways to keep your accounts secure. It's a real pain to manage, though. Authy makes 2FA slightly less annoying, and it's getting a long-awaited feature today in the beta. You can now secure the app with a fingerprint.

Facebook promises to declutter Messenger app in 2018

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

Facebook caught some heat for pushing people to use the Messenger app a few years back, but that may actually have been a kindness. Messenger was a much better app than the main Facebook client. Although, over time Messenger has become rather bloated and clunky in its own right. The head of Messenger now admits the app is too cluttered, and changes are on the way.

Facebook's plans for Messenger in the coming year are detailed in a new post by Messenger chief David Marcus.

Facebook is changing the news feed to bring you closer to the people you actually know in real life

Friday, January 12th, 2018

Particularly for those who were around from the start, usage of Facebook might have waned in recent years. Considering it was originally intended to bring you closer to your friends and family, things are a bit different nowadays. Scroll through your news feed today and you'll likely find a mixture of memes, recipe videos, and adverts (in my case, anyway, but that will depend on what you like/follow), with just a smattering of posts from people you know IRL.
