Have you ever received a random email from a person you’ve never even met? It’s always important to check the authenticity of emails from unknown senders before responding to them, as there is always a chance that they might be fraudulent. To do so make sure you do your proper research on the internet.
The only problem whilst looking up email addresses is that people don’t always have their email address posted on their websites, or in forums. There is a possibility that their email address can be used just for sending emails!
Let’s look at a few methods to find the person behind an email address:
Everyone should know how to use Google Maps offline, as your internet can give up on you anytime. Have you ever been trying to figure out how to get to a new place, when all of a sudden you finish your data pack, or you get a weak or no signal? Or have you been taking a new route to work recently, and need to use Google Maps nowadays? If yes, then it would make more sense to use Google Maps offline, rather than using your data connection every day, and guarantee reaching your destination on time.
First of all we would like to apologize to one of our readers for being almost a week late to replying to your email. His name is Shreyash, and we have also checked with him to make sure it’s alright if I use his real name. This is the email, Shreyash had sent:
“Hi TEQnation, I’m Shreyash and I use a Windows Phone OS on my phone. I am very intrigued by the number of apps that the Google Play store makes available for Android users, but I can not use them on my Windows Phone. Is there a way I can use Android applications on windows PC?”
Well Shreyash, thanks for emailing us your query, and sorry for getting back to you so late. The solution to your problem is called BlueStacks.
There might have been many instances where you were in school, or at work surfing the web, opening new links when all of a sudden your webpage would display that the website that you are trying to access is blocked. Companies and educational institutes like to filter out what web pages can, and cannot be accessed so that their students or employees don’t get side tracked. Our ISPs will often block websites due to geographical restrictions.
Hence to stay on top of your game, and access blocked websites online, TEQnation provides the methods below:
Use a Proxy Sites: Using a proxy site just means that you visit your desired webpage through a third party server. A list of proxy sites can be found here. All you have to do is click on the domain, and enter the website you want to unblock. While using proxy sites, just make sure you don’t enter any sensitive data such as passwords or your banking details, and you should be good to go!
Use a VPN: A VPN or a Virtual Private Network not only provides you with a clock on anonymity, but also ensures that you can access everything on the internet. However, since there is no such thing as a free meal in life, VPN’s are also paid services. One such VPN is HideMyAss (https://www.hidemyass.com/), which can be available for about USD 12 a month.
Internet Archive: The Way Back Machine is an online Internet Archive that takes a backup of your site on a regular bases. This way if your website gets blocked for some reason, then you can still view a version of it, however it won’t be up to date. Make sure to check it out http://www.archive.org/
URL Recasting: Go to your browser and in the URL you are trying to access, add an “s” right after the “http.” So if the URL was http://www.TEQnation.com, then the new URL should be https://www.TEQnation.com . Then click on “Proceed to,” and the page hopefully should be unblocked.
