Facebook two-factor authentication and its importance

Page managers are tending to be targeted more and more. If you are a page manager in facebook, you probably are managing more than one pages, all under your own personal account. But what can happen when someone grabs your password and uses it to login to facebook?



Once your personal password has been compromised and you don't have extra security options enabled, the user or program that found your password, can log into facebook with your personal account and then automatically it or he/she also has full access to all of the pages you manage. This way, it can post, edit the pages, change settings, remove admins, add admins and much much more.

This is no rare event, a lot of profiles in facebook are being hacked often and then there come curious posts, especially spamming posts along with the inability to restore your profile or change the password. But there are steps to follow in order to ensure your facebook account will not be that easily hacked and its called two-factor authentication in general, altough facebook calls it "login approvals".

To enable login approvals, go to your account settings and then "Security" as you can see in the image below :


Then move to login approvals. To enable this, you will need to have a smartphone, the easies way is to have a smartphone and the facebook application installed there. What will happen is that for every new browser that is trying to access your account, both the password and an authentication code will be reuquired to log in. The authentication code can either be sent to your phone via sms or can be provided to you via the facebook application on your smartphone.

So what is really happening is that for someone to access your account, they will need both your password and your phone, a combination which is not so easy to accomplish.

You may also want to enable Login notifications so you can receive an e-mail about each attempt made to access your account.

Enable AMD's Radeon Chill feature for all games.

Since 2014 AMD has been following the tradition of releasing new performance and usability features in their December driver, and 2016 was no exception. Among the myriad of new features and enhancements, was also one that passed almost unnoticed, called Radeon Chill.

Stemming from AMD's acquisition of HiAlgo earlier in 2016, it offers the possibility of huge power and thermal savings while gaming, by monitoring screen movement and adjusting the frame rate accordingly. There is even the claim that it could also reduce response times since the GPU is not occupied with rendering as often.

Its only issue: it's not global, and it's based on a white list of applications to function. But fear not, for we are here. Using a trick as old as operating systems themselves, you can try to make it work with every title. Let's see how to do that.
Step One: Activate Radeon Chill. Doing that is fairly easy. Right click on your desktop and select "Radeon Settings":

Resident Evil 7 no stutter guide for 30 and 60 fps systems

The release of the last Resident Evil game has had us go from indifferent, to cautiously optimistic, to infatuated with one of the best releases in the series; a game on par with the couple of initial classics and the fourth instalment. Capcom decided to drop the third person over-the-shoulder perspective for this one and go with the first person camera, refreshing the whole series in the process. Make no mistake, this is one of the greats, and you owe it to yourself to at least try it out even if you aren't into horror games at all. Unlike other publishers, Capcom has been kind enough to provide a demo of the first hour of the game in Steam. Go ahead and try it.

The game itself is quite well optimized, as it is one of the initial PlayStation VR titles released and that means it has to adhere to specific latency requirements. The good news for PC gamers (sorry, no PC VR yet) is a 60fps target where most older GPUs and systems can have a proper experience. Unfortunately, the game …
