i am not tech savvy enough to do "search" and then post . Even if searched and then placed one day they could be turned our to be false /fake like USFDA releases. i just post with certain reliable refs . Those who want to read please ; others have a right to not to read also and ignore if read . no need to take it seriously to heart or mind. If i am asked not to post or vacate this forum i am too pleased also . no worry. CoolBefore posting articles be sure of your facts.
Like MSKmoortyji did please search snoops.com or other sites.
Otherwise, you tend to post false, misleading, and malicious information, and in the process, come out looking like a ......

Even if were to be tech savvy i do not wish to defray my time and dont have energy to do fact check to 100% adn then only to report. choice ever rests with the revered readers.
Prof.MSK Moorthy ji,
Thank you for the response. I also thank you for the time you spent and the efforts you have taken to find out the fact checking thro snoops etc
What I don’t understand is that there was no comment .. would say an expert opinion...from your side ...perhaps..... you may thought that the article which you published is quite self-explanatory.
I would like quote excerpts of article here:
"Juice-jacking" is a real security threat. The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office issued an advisory to travelers in November 2019 warning them of the potential dangers of using public USB ports.
While it is technically possible for crooks to steal information or install malware via public USB ports, this practice doesn't appear to be widespread.
To sum up: Juice-jacking is a genuine security threat, and the LA County District Attorney’s Office did issue an advisory in November 2019 warning travelers against using public USB ports. However, while it’s technically possible to juice-jack a phone, this is not a widespread criminal activity.
LA County District Attorney’s Office did issue an advisory in November 2019.
Why did they issued such an advisory….???
I believe that I should be more careful on my postings and wanted to ensure that my postings/texts add value to the contents of the Forum. I also know that I am being judged by the members thro the contents of my postings.
I really appreciate Prasad Ji for issuing a sort of Advisory Note
Honestly, I now have a question to ask:
Could you or anyone else, kindly explain to a layman like me, as to the correctness of the contents posted by me. Are they totally fake .....??
Thanks you sir for the lucid explanation....... I truly appreciate your response to my query. Thanks again.Yes, there are crooks who are out there to steal your data, privacy, money, etc. The security risk is increasing every day. You must guard against these kinds of criminals.
Just as we lock our house and car against "gentleman" thieves, we must take precautions against common crooks. We can not protect our selves against Terrorists.
We do not live in Fort Knox (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Bullion_Depository). There has to be a degree of reasonableness otherwise our life will be chaos.
We walk out of our house into the main city, some of us will not return, but we can not remain in the safety of our house.
Similarly, we board a plane, planes do meet with accidents, that does not mean we will not fly.
WE hand over our credit card in every store for them to charge, there are crooks who can take an image of the card and misuse it, but generally, it does not happen.
But some of us have a habit of posting misleading information just to scare others, and when confronted they immediately shrug all responsibility.
It is like the case of "boy crying wolf, one too many times".
It is always a good idea to charge your phone in airplane mode. It charges faster.Namaskaram. I am suggested by one of my relatives that, if anyone charges the cellphone in a public charging platform, with the cellphone in aeroplane / switch off mode, "juice jacking'' is not possible. Could someone throw light on this aspect please.
If you use cloud you are prone to be hacked.Could any member who is a techno savvy can highlight the safety of using Google pay, Paytm etc for making payments?
