Researchers test Android's VOIP components for the first time, find eight vulnerabilities The vulnerabilities can be exploited to make unauthorized VoIP calls, spoof caller IDs, deny voice calls, and even execute malicious code on users' devices. Google reached another milestone in its quest to push for the broader adoption of the HTTPS standard.In a blog post today, the US-based tech giant said that four out of five (80%) Android applications available for download through the official Play Store are encrypting their respective network traffic using HTTPS.This means that traffic that enters or leaves one of these apps is encrypted and can't be intercepted or read by third-parties.Google expects this number to go up in the coming years, primarily due to a series of measures the company has slowly rolled out and enforced since 2016.

Cloud Print becomes the latest product to face Google death squad Users have just over a year to find a better solution. For the past few weeks, my home WiFi has been powered by the Google Nest Wifi, and it has been a mostly uneventful experience. The Nest Wifi still needs a modem to function, so it will be an additional piece of clutter, but it focuses on doing one thing well, and it does improve WiFi reception in the previous blackspots of my abode. The kit has two parts as standard: The white and round base router that connects to your modem, and a similarly white and round extension point. Setup is dead simple if you follow the instructions, and do not attempt to scan the QR code on the base on the units yourself -- it's a waste of time, they return garbage unless scanned by the Google Home app. The network is controlled out of the Home app on a very basic level, and users that want some more settings need to install a separate Google WiFi, but it is a far cry from the sort of … [Read more...] about Can you trust Google to keep your WiFi running until 2030?
