Windows 10 EoS Announcement

With the multiple rumors surrounding the upcoming overhaul of Windows 10, speculation set in with a possible Windows 11.

On the Microsoft Docs, however, a small but significant note was made for Windows 10 Home and Pro. The Support page shows a retirement date of October 14th, 2025.

When end-of-life happens, the operating system will no longer receive security or quality updates, although Microsoft may decide to extend the deadline slightly at some point in the future, as it did with Windows 7.
Once support ends, users will no longer be able to contact Microsoft for advice in the event of problems with that OS.

What this states is simply clear: Windows 10 End of Support will be ending in 2025. This could mean that the Microsoft event happening on June 24th will be announcing the future of Windows OS – whether its name is Sun Valley, or Windows 11.

There are so much confusion, as well as many questions that Windows users are asking, but we have to wait a couple more weeks for the answers.

Security Feature Added to iOS 15

Apple’s WWDC is happening this week, and announcements have already been overflowing.

iOS 15 has been one of the main topics of this conference. Many of the apps involved with their devices are getting upgrades, including Messages and Facetime.

Yesterday, Apple announced a well known security feature to the operating system: 2-Factor Authentication. According to TechRadar, “iOS 15 will include a built-in authenticator that will help generate verification codes for online services that support 2FA, eliminating the need to download a third-party app, like Google Authenticator or Authy.”

2FA, or Two-factor authentication, was intended to provide the highest effective level of account security. You will set up your accounts in the Settings App, and the feature will simply fill in the code automatically.

What is Sideloading?

It’s no secret that hackers are looking for new ways to inject harmful malware into potential victims’ computers in order to breach their privacy and steal sensitive data. Sideloading is just another way to do that.

If you have an Android, you may be familiar with the term ‘sideloading’. This feature allows users to install apps from different types of sources. While this might be an advantage to those who prefer no limitation, it could also be problematic.

According to Bitdefender, “Using a combination of tricks to persuade users to install apps outside of the official store, criminals spread most of their malware through sideloading.”

It’s important to remember to download content from legitimate sources. Not doing so could potentially welcome attacks to steal information.
