Reverting To A Previous Version Of A Document On A Mac



https://macmost.com/e-1977 With standard Mac apps like Pages, Numbers and Keynote, you can revert to a previously saved version of the file to retrieve text or items you may have deleted or changed. You can completely revert to the old version, or copy and paste some text from an old version. This also works with TextEdit and some third-party apps.

How to Spot iOS Apps That Are Scams

We tend to call out shady apps found on the Google Play Store pretty regularly, but there are also some iOS apps looking to pull one over on unsuspecting Apple customers. In this case, these apps are trying to scam users into costly—and in some cases, undisclosed—in-app transactions.

One such app is a notorious iOS heart rate monitor app that has reappeared on the App Store just eight months after it was banned for scamming users out of their hard-earned cash. The app claims to use the fingerprint Touch ID scanner found on some iOS devices to track your pulse; What it actually does is dupe you into performing an in-app purchase for $89 by using your fingerprint to complete the transaction in the background.

The app’s return to the App Store was reported on by 9to5Mac, who also notes that a recent report from Apps Exposed references more than 500 other apps on the App Store that are also using similar tactics to con users..

Unsurprisingly, many are based around adult content—especially peer-to-peer video chatting, free pornography, and casual sex. What is surprising, however, is that many manage to skirt Apple’s relatively strict reviews policy and artificially inflate their app scores with five-star reviews, which makes it harder to tell they’re fishy from a cursory glance. Still, if you look hard enough and comb through the reviews, you’ll find plenty calling out these apps for being scams.

To keep yourself safe, don’t download apps that appear on Apps Exposed’ list. If you have, delete them immediately and review and report any dubious transaction history. Some of these apps have managed to scam hundreds of thousands in total revenue from users in just the last year.

Remember to vet apps and user reviews thoroughly. Take a few extra minutes to check out apps you’re unfamiliar with by doing a quick Google search before installing them—especially if they claim to, say, send you free naughty images or set you up with real-life hookups or private video chats.

That said, many con apps aren’t based around adult content; plenty of other categories like photo/video filters, quizzes and games, health and wellness, and backgrounds or UI themes are common targets as well. That’s why all unfamiliar apps should be approached with caution. When in doubt, don’t put them on your device, and keep your finger away from any typical in-app purchase approval methods, too.

Add A Color Tint To Photos With Preview



https://macmost.com/e-1975 The color adjustment tools in Preview allow you to tint a photo, but without much control. By using this special technique, you can tint your photo any color you wish, and by any amount. You can also do this directly in the Photos app using the markup tools there. This is also a good way to fade a photo or to darken it without losing too much definition.

How to Delete Voice Recordings From Alexa, Google Assistant, Facebook Portal, and Siri

We can control so many devices through voice interactions with digital assistants like Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant. This can be incredibly convenient, but it can also be nerve-wracking, knowing that technology companies now possess recordings of your voice and interactions.

That’s not to say digital assistants are unsafe to use, but users should know what data is being collected and why—and how much control they have over the way it’s used. Amazon, Apple, Google, and Facebook all collect voice data in some form. They also all let users manage what and how the data is saved—though some are a lot better at this than others.

Alexa

Everything you say to Alexa, via whatever devices you’re using, is stored on Amazon’s servers. You can manage all of this data through your Amazon account, and you can also change these settings for each device using the Alexa app.

  1. Go to Amazon’s voice data management page.
  2. The page features several different headings, each one containing specific stored data/settings. You can use them to delete your voice history, smart alert history, and device-specific history.
  3. Check each of these pages and delete any data you don’t want to be saved—especially the “Alexa Privacy” page.
  4. To opt-out of Amazon using your recordings to improve Alexa’s capabilities, visit the Alexa Privacy page and click on “Manage how your data improves Alexa.” Then, disable “Use Voice Recordings to Improve Amazon Services and to Develop New Features” and “Use Messages to Improve Transcriptions.”

Facebook

While Facebook doesn’t have an AI assistant of its own yet, the company still collects voice data through its Alexa-powered Facebook Portal video chat devices.

You can manage voice data on your Portal device, in the Facebook mobile app, or from the Facebook website.

  1. Open your Facebook profile
  2. Click/tap the Activity Log
  3. Select “Voice Interactions” filter from the side menu.
  4. Click/tap “Delete All Voice Interactions” to wipe your voice history, or search and delete for specific interactions using the search icon.

Google Assistant

Much like Alexa, all Google Assistant history from devices tied to your Google account can be viewed from any device you can use to access your account settings

  1. Go to your Google activity page.
  2. Scroll down to “Voice & Audio Activity.”
  3. Click or tap “Manage Activity.”
  4. From here, you can search through the history using the search bar; delete based on keywords, date, and/or product-type; or delete each entry individually.
  5. You can disable voice interaction tracking by going back to the main Google activity page, than clicking or tapping the blue slider next to “Voice & Audio activity” to disable it.

Siri

Apple often gets a pass when it comes to privacy and data concerns, but even if it is “safer” about handling your voice data, it’s still collecting and saving it—and was having real people listen to snippets to improve Siri’s capabilities.

Unlike other companies, Apple takes an all-or-nothing approach to deleting and blocking recordings of your Siri interactions. You’ll have to stop using the assistant entirely (or delete your Apple account) to remove any recordings Apple has kept.

To “disable” Siri in iOS 11+, you’ll need to:

  1. Go to Settings > Siri & Search.
  2. Disable “Listen for ‘Hey Siri” and “Press Side Button for Siri.”
  3. Accept the warning to fully disable the features.
  4. Next, go to Settings > General > Keyboard.
  5. Disable “Enable Dictation” and accept the warning.
  6. Repeat for every Apple device you own.

Learning To Use Mac Trackpad Gestures



https://macmost.com/e-1973 While most Macs have trackpads, most users never bother to learn how to use some of the gestures available. You can see which ones you have available in System Preferences, along with videos that show you how to perform the gestures. Each has a keyboard shortcut you can use instead if you prefer.
