What To Do If You Get Caught While Spying Mobile Apps?
Whether you are using a monitoring application to spy on a cheating husband, a misbehaving kid or an incompetent employee, in any case, there is a high chance that you may get caught. Although as a master spy there is a very less likelihood of you getting caught. But there is no harm in having a contingency plan. The most important rule of spying involves you having a very good excuse for what you are up to. Other than that, if you still do get caught snooping around in someone’s phone or other gadgets here are a few ways to get out without any serious implications.
Your Word Against Mine
If you get caught and you feel your excuse wouldn’t work then its best to deny the whole situation completely. Being in denial mode means you have space to either completely deny the whole thing from ever existing or simply just put the blame on someone else. However the latter condition only applies to scenarios where you don’t get caught right in the middle of the situation. Shuffling around with random names will throw the victim off track and allow you to devise a more concrete plan. Otherwise, if your kid or spouse finds out that you’ve put a spying application on their phone then the best way to deal with the situation is by completely denying it. Probably also adding that you have no idea where it came from. Here is where your expert acting skills will come in use. Show some real concern and even volunteer to help find the wrongdoer. Give it some time so that the whole thing just becomes a fragment of the past.
Love Transcends All
Love and affection is the key to resolving every conflict in the world. If your loved ones, children or spouse do find out that you have been spying on them, then sometimes it is best to just come out clean. Make them realize in a very caring and considerate manner that everything that you did was out of love and concern. This method usually entails coating the honesty with love and concern for the other person. Everyone likes to know that there is someone in the world that genuinely cares about them. No matter how grave the issue is like spying on someone, it depends on how you phrase everything to get out of the situation.
With kids, it is best to take the cozy motherly affection approach. This is where you try to explain to your kid that monitoring their virtual behavior was solely done to protect them from all the cybercrimes taking place in the world. Similarly in the case of spouses, just open up and try to make them understand your reasons for spying on them. When you put down your fences, high chances are they will also put down their guards.
If installing a spy application on your loved ones phones or other gadgets was not out of love then it was most definitely because of some kind of doubt. With such emotions comes raging anger and hurt that could put of your judgment. Therefore, in the case of your spouse finding out that you have been spying on them, go on all offence only if you are at least 75% sure of their infidelity. If you are not, then chances are that the whole situation could easily back fire on your face. Look at this way: if your spouse is innocent and you claim to have been monitoring them because you suspected their loyalty, then they will understand your situation and even work harder on making things right with you.
But in case they are guilty, then by admitting your act, you are giving them leverage to easily get out of the relationship by initially retaliating and then getting out of the situation by blaming you for anything that they have done. Therefore, if you ever plan on going on all offence, have a strong game plan in mind that protects your defenses as well.
Spying may not be a big deal to some but to others it can be the end of the world. Therefore, it usually depends on the other person and your expertise of handling them adequately in case the whole situation blows over. Not every situation will entertain the above mentioned points but be prepared to use any in case the situation requires it.

3 Easy Tips How to Maximize Your Internet Connection
Many people do not realize that it’s not enough to get a good broadband plan. Apart from having fast internet, you must also make sure your Wi-Fi router is strategically located to optimize your Wi-Fi coverage.
But where should you place the router to make the most out of your internet connection? Here are some useful tips from Globe at Home:
1. Keep your router away from obstruction
Did you know that concrete walls, mirrors, doors, and other large obstacles can weaken your Wi-Fi signal? So keep the path between your router and your device as obstruction-free as possible to maintain optimum connection.
Always place your router in a central location so the signal is evenly distributed. The farther your devices are from the router, the weaker your connection, so place your router in an open space, preferably on an elevated platform and away from bodies of water like an aquarium or water containers. You can also stay close to your router for a better browsing experience.
2. Connect only the devices you’re using
Too many devices connected to your Wi-Fi can slow down your internet speed as each device takes up a portion of your total bandwidth. Only connect devices that are being used to ensure a stable connection.
3. Wi-Fi extenders help improve your Wi-Fi signal coverage!
Your router can only cover so much ground, especially if you have a big home. To ensure your house is fully covered, Globe At Home’s special tech service team, the Globe Tech Squad, also offers Airties Wi-Fi Mesh, which extends Wi-Fi coverage to eliminate dead spots around the house and ensure full Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home.
Globe customers may avail of Airties Wi-Fi Mesh via two payment options: upfront payment of P3,600, or charged to bill at P150/month for 24 months added on to your Globe At Home plan.
Make the most out of your connection with Globe at Home’s Plan 1299 and up, which offers fast and reliable internet connection at speeds of up to 5Mbps and 300GB worth of data allocation per month, with free 100GB allocation for YouTube.

Philippines Adapt Alipay Cashless Payment Model in China and Rest of Asia
A Filipino shopper uses the scan to pay feature of the GCash App at a store in one of the popular malls in the Philippines
GCash is adopting the cashless payments model of Alipay, China’s leading third-party mobile and online payments platform, which is enjoying unprecedented success in China, India and the rest of Asia to give people ease, convenience, and security when purchasing goods and services from lowly street vendors to high-end shops.
Alipay is operated by Ant Financial which has earlier entered into a joint venture with leading Philippine telecommunications provider Globe Telecom and the country’s oldest conglomerate Ayala Corporation to boost the operations of Mynt, parent company of GCash mobile wallet service.
“I believe e-payments have a tremendous amount of potential in the Philippines given the continuous growth of smartphone penetration and the number of unbanked Filipinos. Only a very select group of Filipinos have access to financial services so we want to provide that access to them. Part of financial services is cashless payments. It has taken off in other countries like China and India where the people have realized its value because of the convenience and security that it provides — merchants and buyers don’t have to prepare change, e-money cannot be easily stolen, payments can easily be tracked, among other things,” said Ernest Cu, Globe President and CEO.
At present, 7 out of 10 Filipinos are unbanked while 9 out of 10 do not have access to formal credit. This situation has led to the popularity of cash payments in the country.
Eric Jing, Ant Financial Services Group CEO said: “Ant Financial is working closely with Mynt to bring digital financial inclusion to Filipinos. Imagine a day when you can just pick up your phone and pay using QR codes when you shop, buy tickets, buy food. We’re leveraging technology to provide that. We will use technology to make financial services more transparent and easier to access especially for those who are underserved or unserved. Digital payments with GCash is only the beginning of many new things. I am looking forward to GCash creating more benefits for the individuals and micro and small businesses in the Philippines and to provide financial inclusion for everyone.”
Aside from the scan to pay feature of the GCash App which was allows QR scanning to pay for goods and services, GCash customers can also use the app to cash in, top up their prepaid credit, borrow load, book movies, transfer money, and pay bills.
In China where Alipay started its operations, cash is becoming obsolete as people are doing away with paper money and coins to pay for about everything. Instead of cash, they use smartphones to scan QR codes – a type of barcode which includes the merchant’s information – and pay from their electronic wallet.
Electronic payment using QR codes has become a way of life in China that practically every business, big or small, even street performers are already part of the ecosystem. Right now, over half a billion Chinese are using Alipay’s e-payment system.
A similar trend is occurring in India with Paytm, India’s largest digital wallet where Ant Financial is also an investor. Paytm has already registered over 200 million customers for its digital wallet with a goal of reaching 500 million by 2020.
