How to Clean up your Inbox with UnRoll Me

How to Clean up your Inbox with UnRoll Me

I have to say that this is probably the most useful program/app that I have found this year. You really can clean up your inbox with unroll me.  Unroll.me is really the easiest way to manage your inbox. My inbox no matter how I try always gets in a mess. I sign up for so many things on my quest to find out more information and the best new apps that its no joke.

Clean up your Inbox with UnRoll Me

Unroll me doesn’t just unsubscribe for you with one click, which it does do but it’s not just that.  Unroll.me creates a list of all of your subscription emails in one place.  So you can clean up your inbox and keep all those subscriptions that you like.

  • Unsubscribe from unwanted emails
  • Discover new subscriptions
  • Organise in one place

So instead of twenty emails cluttering up your inbox, now you just have one, genius!  And whats more, it’s FREE!

Clean up your Inbox with UnRoll Me

What happens first if you will get an email that shows you all of your subscribed emails and you just sort them by clicking either

  • Keep
  • Unsubscribe
  • Rollup

Please note if you do unsubscribe using the Unroll.me service, its difficult to sign back up again, as they block emails from that address going forward…  so if you feel you might want to sign up again at a  later date – just unsubscribe manually.

What does it mean this Rollup

Once a day you get a Rollup email which is easy to view scroll down in a list of all your subbed websites in categories. At the moment you can’t change the categories but I believe this is something they are working on.  You can also look at your Rollup folder anytime you like, its all stored there for when you need it.  When you sign up to new websites you will get an email saying you have some more subscriptions to sort out, and again you get a list which asks you if you want to keep, unsubscribe or rollup the email, you just tick the one you want and instantly it’s done. You see, its never been easier to Clean up your Inbox with UnRoll Me.

To see the whole of an email that is in your Rollup you just click it, and you can remove any subscriptions you want at any time if you decide that you still want to get emails when they come.

Emails that the app supports are

  • Outlook
  • Hotmail
  • MSN
  • Windows
  • Gmail
  • Google Apps
  • Yahoo Mail
  • AOL Mail (Is that still a thing)
  • Icloud

Spoof Lifetime Subscription Text message from Whatsapp

There is a scam which I first saw 6 months ago still arriving in peoples inboxes, its the one where you get a Spoof Lifetime Subscription Text message from Whatsapp which is trying to steal account details. The problem with this text message is that it looks like it comes from all the other text messages that Whatsapp sents you, it looks very real.

Spoof Lifetime Subscription Text message from Whatsapp

Your subscription has expired. To verify your account and purchase a lifetime subscription for just 0.99 GBP simply tap on this link

Spoof Lifetime Subscription Text message from Whatsapp

Of course, everyone will think omg I don’t want to lose WhatsApp it’s a great chat app – 99p is nothing for a lifetime subscription, I’ll do it, and without thinking that it could be fake,  they will click on the link.

This is when your problems begin as you give the fraudsters your account details to take the 99p and they have control over your bank account and can take whatever they like. Boom, bank account empty.

It’s very clever and not so clever at the same time, because the scammers are spoofing the number so that it looks like its coming from WhatsApp.  But this is in fact very easy to do, you can even get an app for that.

Spoof Lifetime Subscription Text message from Whatsapp

What is Sms spoofing

Sms spoofing is when a sender changes the originating number and replaces it with another number, this is a common practice for hackers who often use this system to gain access to various accounts sometimes by saying that there is a problem with your account, or your account may have been attacked, and scares you into logging in, via a link, when you do so you give your details to the scammer.

So be warned this text message is purely just a scam aimed at stealing your bank details

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this scam from WhatsApp and other like it, like the WhatsApp VIP upgrade, which took you to a link which infected your device with malware.

So watch out for this Spoof Lifetime Subscription Text message from Whatsapp and others like it.  Stay safe, don’t be scammed.

 

How do Parents set up Facebooks New Messenger Kids

Facebook has just introduced Messenger Kids, a new app for kids … and families to connect.   I was a bit dubious about this at first but parents do have a lot of control and it doesn’t give your kid a facebook account, you still have to be over 13 for that.  I thought it might be helpful to bypass all the fluff about it and just show you How do Parents set up Facebooks New Messenger Kids.

Just quickly though…

What is Facebooks New Messenger Kids

Firstly its a new Facebook messenger app just for kids which controlled via a parents Facebook account, so unlikely to be hacked. Unless the kids know your password, which I’m sure some kids do know their parents passwords.   Maybe this will help.  I’m sure every safety feature you can think of has been added after Youtube has been forced to toughen up its rules to protect families. 

How do Parents set up Facebooks New Messenger Kids

Facebook said

Today, parents are increasingly allowing their children to use tablets and smartphones, but often have questions and concerns about how their kids use them and which apps are appropriate. So when we heard about the need for better apps directly from parents during research and conversations with parents, we knew we needed to develop it alongside the people who were going to use it, as well as experts who could help guide our thinking.

So, once its set up your kids can video chat with parent-approved contacts – using emojis, sound effects and playful masks.  Your kids can always send photos, videos and text messages to approved friends and relatives. Who will receive these messages via the normal messenger.

How do Parents set up Facebooks New Messenger Kids

Every child account on Messenger Kids must be set up by a parent. For parents, setting your child up with a Messenger Kids account is done in four steps:

  1. Download: First, download the Messenger Kids app on your child’s iPad, iPod touch, or iPhone from the App Store.  Or here > Messenger Kids
  2. Authenticate: Then, authenticate your child’s device using your own Facebook username and password. This will not create a Facebook account for your child or give them access to your Facebook account.
  3. Create an account: Finish the setup process by creating an account for your child, where all you’ll need to do is provide their name. Then the device can be handed over to the child so they can start chatting with the family and friends you approve.
  4. Add contacts: To add people to your child’s approved contact list, go to the Messenger Kids parental controls panel in your main Facebook app. To get there, click on “More” on the bottom right corner in your main Facebook app, and click “Messenger Kids” in the Explore section.

You’ll be pleased to know that Messenger Kids has no ads and no in-app purchases.  Oh and its only out in the US right now….

What do you think about this new app, will you be letting your kids on it…
