]]> Stop using anonymous social app Yik Yak unless you want your location exposed https://houread.org/stop-using-anonymous-social-app-yik-yak-unless-you-want-your-location-exposed/ Sat, 14 May 2022 04:58:23 +0000 https://houread.org/stop-using-anonymous-social-app-yik-yak-unless-you-want-your-location-exposed/

The Yik Yak app seems to put more danger for its users than it wants. A researcher has published his findings on how the anonymous app reveals a user’s location.

The scary part? It seems to be too precise for comfort.

What is Yik Yak anyway?

For the casual, Yik Yak is a form of anonymous social media that has grown in popularity, especially on the campuses of educational institutions.

It first appeared on the market in 2013. These claims have been circulating ever since the app was released. Due to allegations of threats of violence and intimidation, the company stopped allowing access to middle and high school students in 2014.

Following allegations that it served as a place to harass and cyberbully students and spread bomb threat messages, the app was taken permanently offline in 2017.

The anonymous app made a comeback the year before, although my colleague Gita Jackson pointed out at the time that it was a comeback no one really asked for.

Location data of Yik Yak

YikYak is an anonymous messaging app that allows users to see other users’ posts within a five-mile radius of their location. Emojis and colors are assigned to each user so that they can be easily distinguished from each other. However, users have the ability to reset these attributes at any time.

Additionally, the app allows users to continue conversations in comment sections, which are places where users can interact with each other. However, it has been reported by David Teatera Madison, Wisconsin-based computer science student that the app can discover users’ precise locations as well as their individual IDs.

Teather discovered that users’ exact locations and unique IDs could be found with the Yik Yak app. Data collected from YikYak resulted in accurate GPS coordinates within 10-15 feet of the origin of posts and comments. He says he informed the company of his findings in April.

The danger of the YikYak

In a social application like YikYak, it is known that location data usually does not cause harm to its users. However, this becomes a problem when precise GPS coordinates are made available to the client while user credentials are also exposed. Having this information too specific can anonymize users, easily expose their identity, and make their home address or current location accessible to everyone.

This can be a difficult vulnerability because the flaw can be used by malicious actors to spy on users or break into someone’s residence while they’re away.

Although a single GPS location can link a user to a single address, the possibility of de-anonymization is a significant concern in low-density rural areas with isolated single-family homes more than 10-15 feet apart.

According to The edgeTeather said: “Because user IDs are persistent, it is possible to determine a user’s daily routine, i.e. when and from where they post YikYaks, this can be used to discover the daily routine of a particular YikYak user.”

The most recent version of the Yik Yak app does not provide precise locations or user IDs. Teather, on the other hand, says he can still get this information using older versions of the software.

Tried the “Hint” astrology app and settled in with my own personal astrologer – highly recommend https://houread.org/tried-the-hint-astrology-app-and-settled-in-with-my-own-personal-astrologer-highly-recommend/ Mon, 09 May 2022 21:13:04 +0000 https://houread.org/tried-the-hint-astrology-app-and-settled-in-with-my-own-personal-astrologer-highly-recommend/

I started to become a more serious astrology fan (let’s face it, looking at the stars is more comforting than staying on Earth these days). And while I love compatibility reports and horoscopes, I recognize that the mother lode of information is contained in my natal chart – which can be a little tricky to navigate.

We only recommend products that we like and think you will too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.

The Incredibly Useful App Hint recognizes this and matches users with a personal and professional astrologer to help illuminate the intricacies of your chart and provide tailored guidance for navigating the energies of the current cosmic climate. Your astrologer is available to connect anytime, in any area of ​​life, in real time.

How does the index work?

I kicked things off taking Hint’s online quiz – the questions helped determine the areas that are most important to me, my relationship patterns, my level of astrological knowledge. I entered my birth information, and with a little help from NASA data, Hint generated my natal chart, current horoscopes, and built a personalized guidance plan.

I chose how much I wanted to pay for this service and, using the information gleaned from the quiz, Hint suggested three professional astrologers for ultra-personal advice on understanding (and getting the most out of) my astrological plan. I watched their intro videos and picked the one that stood out to me the most.

I went with a lovely astrologer named Vladana, who promptly sent me a welcome video outlining the general implications of my chart, inviting me to unload any questions I might have about it. I wanted to dive into my career and relationships first, so we did. She perfectly described my strengths and habits and presented ways to tap into auspicious energies in the weeks and months ahead.

A line open to the cosmos

Vladana intuitively detected areas of my life that could use some attention (focus and flow of confidence for me). The planet Mars rules passion and motivation, and I learned what its location and ruling planet in my chart indicate – along with practical information for leveraging my strengths and mitigating potential weaknesses.

Vladana shared celebrities who also have some of my (fun!) placements and we dive deeper into higher level astrology stuff like my moon sign, Midheaven, and how the 12 zodiac houses come into play in my theme. It’s fascinating to learn more about myself through this lens, and Vladana is always kind and encouraging to dig deeper.

I really love the fact that if a question comes to me about my chart or the current state of astrological energy, I can enter it and receive a quick response full of personalized guidance.

How Hint Can Help You Through Mercury Retrograde

Speaking of the current state of astrological energy, everyone’s favorite little instigator is about to do his dance. Yes, we are on another Mercury retrograde from May 10 to June 2. However, Hint is here to help us feel more prepared, reminding us that it doesn’t have to be all about chaos, traffic jams, and broken technology. Instead, retrogrades can be seen as a nudge from the universe to slow down and catch your energetic breath, so to speak.

But if you’ve got a bit of anxiety about the whole thing, now’s the perfect time to try a one-on-one virtual hands-on. In honor of the occasion, Hint offers a 7-day trial for just $1, with the option to continue at a 30% discount.

Final Thoughts: Get a personal astrologer

Did I mention that I love receiving real-time guidance to understand the meaning of my chart and what’s going on in the sky? These are tough times we are all going through, and the extra support, backed by the cosmic, is super welcome. Vladana and I are in touch almost daily, and Hint’s unique platform has been fun and informative – it’s also been a game changer.

I feel greater peace of mind having someone by my side to help illuminate the things that thrill me and navigate the energy of the weeks and months ahead. I was only scratching the surface of my natal chart, the meaning of full moons and eclipses, and now I’m diving in with an awesome amount of advice.

If this sounds good to you, or if you’re curious about taking your astrology journey to the next level, I enthusiastically encourage you to “take a hint” and see what you discover.

Local student named finalist in national design competition for app that brings kids together through stories https://houread.org/local-student-named-finalist-in-national-design-competition-for-app-that-brings-kids-together-through-stories/ Sat, 07 May 2022 21:19:09 +0000 https://houread.org/local-student-named-finalist-in-national-design-competition-for-app-that-brings-kids-together-through-stories/

For Sohan Chunduru, a Del Mar resident and senior at La Jolla Country Day School, storytelling is a way to open minds to different cultures. At 17, he’s authored five children’s books and recently created a prototype app that lets kids around the world connect to tell stories collaboratively.

The creation of this application, called Whale Tales, earned Sohan one of the three finalist places in the 2022 National High School Design Competition presented by the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum At New York.

The competition drew more than 700 entries from across the country and named finalists and honorable mentions on April 7.

Sohan is the third La Jolla Country Day student named finalist since the program launched in 2016.

Renee Wang, a sophomore at Bishop’s School in La Jolla, earned an honorable mention this year for her self-sufficient, eco-friendly, deconstructable tiny house for the homeless.

As a finalist, Sohan will take the competition to the next stage with a virtual “mentoring weekend” with lead mentor Kenneth Bailey, co-founder of the Design studio for social intervention in Boston, and on judging weekend, when the finalists will present their creations to a panel of judges. The winner will be announced in June.

This year’s participants were tasked with designing something that contributes to “a more peaceful and just world”.

Whale Tales is designed for children around the world to create stories together. With the app, children can add text and images to a digital storybook and share their storybooks with their peers.

“Whale Tales exposes children to different cultures and teaches them the values ​​of teamwork and cooperation, creating a community of future, empathetic global citizens,” according to Sohan. “Allowing children to interact with peers from other countries increases cultural awareness and gives hope for a more peaceful and just future world.”

A screenshot of Sohan Chunduru’s presentation shows how the Whale Tales app prototype works.

“I worked pretty hard to create the app, so I’m happy to have been named a finalist,” Sohan told the La Jolla Light. He said he was introduced to the competition by a teacher and the concept sparked his interest.

“I’ve always been interested in other cultures and always enjoyed getting to know them,” he said. “Children are more willing to engage in this type of learning than adults, so I wanted to showcase this [in my submission]. Many recent negative events have their roots in ignoring other cultures, so getting to know others is a good way to combat this problem.

He said learning about other cultures has made him more “open-minded” and he wants the same for the next generation. As part of this mission, Sohan has written five children’s books focusing on different cultures and countries.

“I always liked to write in a journal about different countries when I was traveling,” he said. But during the COVID-19 pandemic, when restrictions were imposed on travel, his options were limited.

“A lot of recent negative events have their roots in ignoring other cultures, so getting to know other people is a good way to combat this problem.”

—Sohan Chunduru

Additionally, he said, he has witnessed an increase in hate crimes targeting Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. In response to this, and to feed his need to write, he wrote “Ni Hao, China!” about two children who travel the world to learn about Chinese cultures, customs and languages.

“Shalom Israel”, “Namaste India”, “Kia Ora New Zealand” and “Ola Brazil” soon followed.

“I like the idea of ​​using books to expand the reach of cultural awareness,” he said. His next book will focus on Kenya.

Beyond that, Sohan will be attending Stanford University in the fall. Although he has yet to declare a major, he said he plans to pursue a degree in design or political science.

Indiana schools use app to connect students in need to community donations https://houread.org/indiana-schools-use-app-to-connect-students-in-need-to-community-donations/ Fri, 06 May 2022 13:36:00 +0000 https://houread.org/indiana-schools-use-app-to-connect-students-in-need-to-community-donations/

Low-income students may struggle to meet basic needs, such as new clothes and shoes. Without them, students may find it harder to fit in and feel comfortable at school. Schools in Perry Township in Marion County are trying to ease the burden by partnering with a mobile app that lets community members find out what students need and buy it, all in a way anonymous.

“It is very helpful for our students to remove some of the barriers that prevent them from going to school because they are embarrassed by their clothes or their shoes or they do not have the tools they need to regulate their diabetes,” said Stephanie Quinlan, Perry Schools Assistant. Director of Students.

The app, Purposity, is used to connect students with items such as clothing, shoes, and underwear. Donations also supported the purchase of detergent and hangers so that a student could do their family’s laundry at school.

The district has been using the free app for about two months. By April, about 25 students in Perry Township had been helped, but nearly 25 needs were still listed on the app.

Why Students Need Specific Gifts

According to state data, 71 percent of students in Perry Township received free or reduced meals last year, the national standard for calculating child poverty. The statewide rate is 46% of students.

Although Quinlan said she appreciates the food and used clothing donations they receive, that’s not always what the students need.

“It’s great to be able to help those with a specific need, rather than just giving a case of green beans,” Quinlan said. “Which is useful when we get to that time and our pantries use it. But sometimes it’s easier to give food. It’s harder and it’s harder to get it.

A child’s needs are displayed on the app because a student approaches a teacher, or a social worker or educator has noticed that a student may need certain items. have closed-toe sports shoes, so they cannot participate in physical education. But this was quickly resolved thanks to community support through the Pursosity app.

Purposeful donations also supported a family who lost most of their clothes and possessions in a house fire, as well asdiabetic medical equipmentfor an elementary school student who is now able to have more free will when taking his own ketone and blood sugar levels.

How the Pursity app works

The district posts a story on the app about an anonymous student or family and explains the specifics they need. Then, a community member can choose to anonymously fulfill that need based on the location, item, or cost of the request. All the needs listed by Perry Township are between $15 and $100.

“I liken it a bit to a marriage registry where you can sort of get a list of the needs we have here in Perry Township and decide which ones you want to meet,” Quinlan said.

After someone pays for an item on the app, it’s shipped from Amazon to the school district. This process allows students to receive the exact color and size a child needs, while limiting the storage space the district must set aside for donations.

Other school districts in Indiana that use Purposity include Lawrence Township, Washington Township, Irvington Community Schools, Danville Community Schools, Hamilton Southeastern, Westfield Washington Schools, Lebanon Special School District.
