One of the first considerations for developers building mobile and web apps is how to handle account security, namely how they’re going to protect and authenticate their users and their data. The days where a username and password was sufficient to protect accounts are long behind us, and we’re reminded of this nearly every day in the form of large-scale breaches, high-profile account takeovers, or massive digital heists.Adding stronger account security such as two-factor authentication (2FA) to your app is one of the simplest ways to increase security, protect users from cyberattacks, and build trust in your product, all while maintaining a smooth user experience.This quick-start guides you through building a Node.js, AngularJS, and MongoDB application that restricts access to a URL. I’ll be demonstrating four methods of delivering 2FA: SMS, Voice, Soft Tokens and Push Notifications.As with my previous tutorials, the first step is to create a free Twilio account if … [Read more...] about Getting started with Twilio account security using Node.js and MongoDB

Review By Daniel Eran Dilger Tuesday, September 26, 2017, 06:30 pm PT (09:30 pm ET) Apple's latest iPhone 8 is supercharged by its new A11 Bionic chip, which does the heavy lifting for a series of major new camera features as well as making everything faster. It also packs iPad Pro's True Tone display and Fast Charging, and adds Qi wireless charging through its beautifully glossy rear glass back, built in a familiar shape but with a new steel structure ringed in an aluminum band with precision seams that continue the water and dust resistance of the previous 7 generation. iPhone 8 models carry forward all of the features of Apple's previous iPhone 7 and 7 Plus (this year's top selling smartphones), along with top to bottom enhancements including: a new aluminum-ringed, strengthened glass case architecture that provides a distinctive appearance and enables the convenience of Qi "wireless" inductive charging with iP67 dust and liquid intrusion resistance; new USB-PD Fast Charging; … [Read more...] about Super fast bionic glass: iPhone 8 Review
One of the biggest reasons for Android 's success is in the hardware variety. There is an Android smartphone that fits everyone's preferences, size needs, and budget. The basic aim of the platform is to be incredibly adaptable and malleable, so why do people continue to try defining Android's success through the lens of what Apple has done with iOS? The comparison makes little sense when looking at market share, and even less sense when looking at how the platforms are built and how that affects the resulting hardware. iOS is a tightly controlled ecosystem designed to run on Apple's hardware and nothing else. It is highly optimized because of that software/hardware relationship and affords. Android on the other hand, is designed to be able to run on a wide range of devices across price points and form factors. Of course, that same variety causes a number of different issues which some people lazily file under the heading of "fragmentation". That is what OpenSignal has done, … [Read more...] about Android isn’t iOS, so why do we try to define it the same way?
Driving around Bangalore, it’s immediately clear that the infrastructure hasn’t kept up with the IT boom in this once-sleepy South Indian city. Auto rickshaws, scooters, and motorcycles squeeze into a tight phalanx at each red light and choke the air with exhaust. Construction, such as the concrete supports of the new metro rail line that looms overhead, causes detours everywhere, and in spots the entire road abruptly disintegrates into gravel. But something miraculous happens as you make your way south, past the outer ring road. A ramp lifts a select few vehicles out of the weaving traffic and onto an elevated tollway, where you suddenly have a bird’s-eye view of the urban landscape. This is the road to Electronic City, an oasis of glass and steel high-rises overlooking pristine black asphalt paths that snake through the perfectly manicured lawns of tech companies like Wipro, IBM, and Infosys Technologies. “If you can have such good roads in the Infosys … [Read more...] about India’s Big Bet on Identity
