Good morning good folks of the internet.
It’s Sunday morning, and I’ve dealt with two security breaches this weekend. Two breaches, two solutions. Back to Brick&Mortar land.
Security breach #1: Incognito mode.
I’m not a tech-savvy guy. The admin controls for LifeAfterInternet.com were giving me some sass, so I called tech support. They told me to try using incognito mode. It worked!
About five minutes later, I realized the massive gap in my security. Fuck.
After many hours of googling, I wasn’t getting very far. I tried OpenDNS, but what the fuck, I couldn’t understand that for shit. Let me go on record, firmly stating that I don’t recommend OpenDNS as a helpful NoSurf tool in any way, shape, or form. It’s probably good for other stuff, but for our purposes, no thanks.
After many hours, despite no information on their website, I found that Mobicip does block incognito on the chrome browser. I can state that with confidence. You go to More tools, Extensions, and then “enable in incognito”. They don’t say it anywhere, I guess it’s self-explanatory. It only took me three hours to figure it out.
But yeah, blocked it, all is well. Went to bed a winner.
Security breach #2: Internet Lock Lite stopped doing it’s job. It just gave up! I turned on wifi to watch, with smug satisfaction, the wifi attempt to connect. To watch my victory over the intrusiveness of technology.
And the tech won! Internet Lock Lite didn’t do shit. So once again, it was back to the drawing board. The solution I found, was using Qustodio’s application manager, to block the Chrome browser completely on my android phone. It successfully does that, as well as blocking basically any activity on the Google Now Searchbar.
So there. Two breaches, two solutions.
RIP Internet Lock Lite,
