How to turn off Facebook recording call and SMS details

Now, that Facebook has explained how it collects this data with Messenger and Facebook Lite, it also tells people what they can do if they don’t want this data collected.

The first thing to avoid giving Facebook your call and SMS details is to deny the Facebook apps access to your contacts when you are installing these apps. The second way is to turn off the permission from Facebook settings. To do this:

On Facebook Messenger: Go to settings > People > Turn off Contact Sync. To delete previously uploaded contacts, go to this page, log into your account and delete contacts.

On Facebook Lite: Go to Settings > Turn off Continuous Contacts Upload. Also turn off Sync Your Call and Text History.

How to unlink your Aadhaar UIDAI Card?

UIDAI Aadhaar

The Supreme Court on Wednesday declared government’s Aadhaar scheme as Constitutionally valid and also struck down Section 57 of Aadhaar Act permitting private entities to avail Aadhaar data. “Robust data protection regime has to be brought in place as early as possible,” Justice Sikri said while reading out the majority judgement.

The court said that the Aadhaar authentication data cannot be stored for more than six months.

WHAT NEEDS AADHAAR LINKING:
1) It is mandatory to link PAN card with Aadhaar
2) Aadhaar is a must for filing income tax returns
3) Aadhaar is necessary for availing welfare schemes and subsidies given by the government

Not Required
Aadhaar not mandatory for opening of bank account
No mobile company can demand “Aadhaar card”
Aadhaar need not be made compulsory for school admissions
CBSE, NEET, UGC cannot make Aadhaar mandatory
Telecom service providers can’t seek linking of Aadhaar
Not mandatory to link Aadhaar to bank accounts

As of today telecom operators, banks, schools etc have not provided any facility for customers to unlink their aadhaar card. Hopefully this situation will change soon.

Slow query while searching a product woocommerce

I was struggling with this issue since long with my wordpress with wooocommerce website. Whenever i was doing a search in admin dashboard for wooommerce products it was taking long time and end up with no results.

SELECT DISTINCT posts.ID as product_id, posts.post_parent as parent_id
    FROM wp_posts posts 
         LEFT JOIN wp_postmeta postmeta ON posts.ID = postmeta.post_id 
    WHERE ( posts.post_title LIKE '%Samsung%' 
            OR posts.post_excerpt LIKE '%Samsung%' 
            OR posts.post_content LIKE '%Samsung%' 
            OR ( postmeta.meta_key = '_sku'
                 AND postmeta.meta_value LIKE '%Samsung%' ) ) 
          AND posts.post_type IN ('product','product_variation') 
    ORDER BY posts.post_parent ASC, posts.post_title ASC

After months of troubleshooting i am still not able to fully resolve the issue, however with this workaround i am finally somewhat relived.

To resolve this issue…

Edit this file – public_html/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/data-stores/class-wc-product-data-store-cpt.php

In Woocommerce version 3.4.6 look for search_products function

On line no. 1397 look for

$term_group_query .= $wpdb->prepare( ” {$searchand} ( ( posts.post_title LIKE %s) OR ( posts.post_excerpt LIKE %s) OR ( posts.post_content LIKE %s ) OR ( postmeta.meta_key = ‘_sku’ AND postmeta.meta_value LIKE %s ) )”, $like, $like, $like, $like ); // @codingStandardsIgnoreLine.

Remove following code

OR ( postmeta.meta_key = ‘_sku’ AND postmeta.meta_value LIKE %s )

It should then look like this…

$term_group_query .= $wpdb->prepare( ” {$searchand} ( ( posts.post_title LIKE %s) OR ( posts.post_excerpt LIKE %s) OR ( posts.post_content LIKE %s ) )”, $like, $like, $like, $like ); // @codingStandardsIgnoreLine.

Save the file and you should be able to search for products now. The downside with this is you’ll not be able to search SKU’s. But i was ok with this as dont have SKU’s added to my products.

I hope this will help you.

Backup Chrome passwords without third-party tools

Please make sure that you’re running the latest version of Chrome browser to get Import/Export option.

Step 1: Open Chrome://flags in your Chrome.

Chrome-Settings-Menu

Step 2: Find Password Import and Export option, select Enabled from the drop-down box, and then restart the Chrome browser.

Step 3: Now, open Chrome://settings/passwords page.

Step 4: Click on Export button to export/backup saved passwords. Click the Import button to restore previously saved passwords.

Exporting passwords is useful for users while moving on to other browsers, another platform, or even a password manager. As we mentioned, the feature is available on the Chrome Dev channel on desktop, and users need to go to Settings > Manage passwords, where they will see a new overflow menu near Saved Passwords. Tapping on it gives users the option to export passwords as a CSV file, one that can be used by other password managers.

How to check Aadhaar Authentication / Usage History ?

UIDAI Aadhaar

This tool can be used to view Authentication details. Fetch your aadhaar authentication history (Notifications) data.

 

  1. Go to UIDAI’s Aadhaar Authentication History page.
  2. Enter your Aadhaar number and the captcha in the image.
  3. Click Generate OTP. You’ll get a one-time password via SMS on your phone. In case you haven’t done it already, here’s how to verify your phone number with UIDAI.
  4. On the next page, UIDAI lets you filter the search by specific authentication request types such as biometric, demographic, and so on. The page even allows you to select the date range — you can see authentication requests up to six months before the current date. The final field is the OTP. Just enter that and click Submit.
  5. Now you’ll be able to see a detailed list of Aadhaar authentication requests. This shows you the date, time, and type of authentication request. However, it does not show what company or agency used your Aadhaar data for authentication.
