Thank God someone finally did something about that idiot's account (it breaks all the rules). I hope to all of the Greek gods give this employee a management position at Twitter top priority.

Re: As soon as the user clicked on the image...

No.

Re: What?

Good that way WhatsApp servers will have unencrypted data under servers to be hacked at a later time because you can't look at code to see if it's valicious of as you can see it it it's all encrypted form Therefore your data is no longer in Cryptid from point A to point B somewhere in the middle as WhatsApp server looking at unencrypted data that may or may not be executable and may or may not be your photos that you want to remain private or anything that you said that you want to make privates.

Here is what happened last week coming into US O'Hare from Banff Canada (I do this once a month).

They ask me to turn on my phone, I do. They ask to see (hold) it, I oblige. They ask for the PIN. I say no, and add, if I am going to jail for it, let's add assault.

They give my phone back. "On your way sir, your cleared.".

Don't try that. We'll see who I get next month!

Met police commissioner: Fraud victims should not be refunded by banks

Goopy

Re: Contactless fraud up by two thirds

Sort of. While cvv are Always needed for legitimate online transactions, they are not stored. What IS stored: a verification flag that only changes when the cc exp date is near or reached or the main Number changes. If you get a replacement card due to physical card damage, some banks will send you a replacement sight the same main number, same exp date, different ccv. The ccv changing does not invalidate a good-flagged card number, so there is no reason to change it on record, for recurring transactions.

Goopy

Re: Contactless fraud up by two thirds

Replacing "overlooked" with "overseen", yes, then I see your point. Overlooked means ignored.

Re: Disabling an RFID card.

Of course, saying that, that the Chip in "Chip and PIN" is NOT an RFID chip, right. Credit and Debit Cards don't have RFID chips in them. Security cards do, that is about it for RFID cards my friend.
