Quickteller App Login Error: How To Fix

Are you unable to log into your quickteller app on your android phone? You may encounter login error when you try to log into the quickteller app.

This is the login error message you are most probably going to see: The date set on your phone may be wrong. Please set it correctly and try again.

The date set on your phone may be wrong. Please set it correctly and try again.

How do you fix this? 

The first step is to check if the date set on your phone is actually correct. If it is correct then, the problem has nothing to do with the date.

The thing is, the recent update on the quickteller app does not work on some lower android versions. So to use the quickteller app without login error issue, upgrade your phone to a higher version. This also applies to the verveworld app. You won't be able to log into the verve world app if you can't log into your quickteller app.

Top 5 Reasons To Fear Hackers

Thousands of hackers from all across the world go to Las Vegas each year for the Def Con and blackhat, which are security conventions where those who attend are warned not to send any confidential information across their wireless networks.

It’s traditional for computer hackers to showcase all their best exploits at these conventions, which ultimately leads to a ton of press attention, creating awareness to exploits that others were previously unaware of.

In this article, I’ve decided to list 5 reasons why you should be wary of computer hackers in today’s society.

Hacker


1. They can use GoPro to Spy on You

Imagine going mountain biking with your GoPro device attached to your helmet, oblivious to the fact that someone has hacked into it and can now spy on your every move. Professional and amateur video makers love to use the GoPro portable video camera, because of its internet connectivity. But this one feature that makes the device appealing is its biggest vulnerability.

Hackers have worked out tons of different ways of exploiting the GoPro device, with methods of controlling it and recording what is being displayed on the device. This could prove to be a serious security risk for military personnel who decide to use such cameras while on duty.


2. Hackers Love Lazy People

You should never be afraid to be that individual that has tons of different passwords but chooses to remember them instead of using one of those password managers. The safest place for your passwords is in your head. If you were to use one of these password managers, like LastPass, then it’d be in your best interest to ensure that the passwords are not stored in a cloud or on the internet.


3. Mobile’s Map Your Every Move

There was a security researcher that went by the name of Brendan O’Connor, who planted sensors all across a city, for the cost of $60 per sensor. These sensors were used to track signals, including mobile devices and cell phones, sending all this data back to a central database which mapped the signals. Because most people tend to travel around with at least their mobile phone, it meant that the sensor was able to track their every move.

This device went by the name of CreepyDOL, which wasn’t the most intriguing thing about it. The most intriguing thing was the fact that his project was government funded, and these sensors were just one of many ways that you can be monitored while out and about.


4. You’re Not Invincible

Even if you’re a careful individual, that doesn’t mean you can’t fall victim to one of these hackers. Even the best of them get hacked. Phishing seems to be one of the most common ways that even the most experienced computer users are hacked, by receiving emails that appear to be as authentic as can be.

The more intelligent scammers tend to think long term, they’re thinking about their gain over a considerable length of time. Hackers will steal credit card numbers, but the theft of such data has its short-term benefits and long-term. In the long term, they’d hope to use such information to steal one's identity.

You don’t want to fall into the trap of thinking your invincible. It’s this thought that can make you fall prey to one of these hackers; you want to be cognizant of all the things these people can do.


5. They Can Hack Your Vehicle

Car hacking, over the years, has become a very big trend. Hackers are capable of breaking into your vehicle using remote access and then tweaking things that are under your dashboard. You could be driving somewhere only to find out that your brakes are not working, or your wheels start acting up, or your fuel tank indicator is showing your fuel levels are full when in reality it’s empty.

A security research at Twitter was able to showcase these feats, just to let others know how real and terrifying this stuff actually is. If you visit one of these Def Con security conventions, then you should get an up close and personal demonstration of these vehicle hackers, and how they can adversely affect you.

Definitely, something you should be aware of, given the fact that these hacks are applicable to more and more cars.

Payoneer The Best Alternative To PayPal In Nigeria

Being a digital entrepreneur was once something lots of folks never wanted to hear. This may be because they can’t actually pinpoint how to get their money after they have rendered their services to foreign clients. Most times the question is always, how do withdraw the funds? Especially if you belong to a freelancing platform like Fiverr, Upwork, Seoclerk, Freelancer,  99design, Guru.com, etc.

You could face the same challenge if you are an affiliate in any of the affiliate network/programs or probably you are a blogger earning from Google Adsense. Whichever one you chose to belong, you must be ready to at least discover a payment platform that will be the best.

Payoneer

When Nigerian started using Paypal, it was very awesome but some of the features other countries are enjoying were restricted from us. Though this never bothered the Nigerians community probably because we still do receive and send money, they can as well go to hell with their features.

The next phase was a massive ban for Nigerian leading to a lot of Nigerian accounts being disabled while people that have their funds lost them all.  As time proceeds the restrictions become worst to the extent that Nigerian can only purchase with this platform.

Meaning, if you are a Nigerian handling massive foreign countries you got to find a country that you can use to reach to your client.

Looking for the best PayPal Nigeria Alternative as at now? Then you got Payoneer. This is where Payoneer came to our rescue.


How does Payoneer work?

Payoneer is an international payment gateway that issues a master card that can be used to withdraw your funds even directly from your bank in Nigeria.

With this account, you are sure to withdraw your hard earning anywhere in Nigeria. To register on Payoneer, you need no special digital skill. Just with your internet and your computer or even your mobile phone and in a few minutes you would have forgotten that you created an account with them.

That’s how hassle-free the platform is. To register on Payoneer you will be required of the following.
Your Valid email address
A valid home address as this will be used to deliver your debit card to you.
A valid Means of Identification. You can use your Voters Card, National ID card or Driver license. Get a scanned copy of any of the card.
You must be 18 years of age before heading to that platform otherwise you won’t be eligible for having an account.

Some of the benefits of having a Payoneer account in Nigeria

You don’t need any form of VPN to help you register.
You don’t need to fake it before you can be able to open an account, unlike Paypal that you need to find an alternative since Nigerian is restricted to using certain features.
You can always order your debit card to help you make an online payment on site that requires master cards. (before it is free but now you have to order for it before you can be able to get it)
Registering on Payoneer is totally free and requires no special digital skills.
With Payoneer's master card you can withdraw from any bank in Nigeria.

Head to payoneer.com to sign up and start receiving funds easily and fast.
That’s it.

Stanbic IBTC Naira Debit Cards Now Work For Facebook Ad

Facebook ad is one of the best social media marketing channels to reach potential customers. Sometimes, due to constant changing of policies, many banks usually decline their Naira Debit Mastercard or Visa card from working for facebook ad payment.


Stanbic IBTC Naira Debit Cards hasn't been working for payment of Facebook ad. I opened my account with the bank some time ago after a staff of the bank assured me that their Silver Mastercard do work for international transactions since it is connected to a current account. But it didn't work. The staff just wanted me to open an account with Stanbic IBTC and I fell for it. Lol.

But recently, after the bank announced that their Naira Debit is now enabled for international transactions, I decided to try it to pay for Facebook ad.

Stanbic IBTC Mastercard Verify For Facebook Ad

When using the card for the first, you will be sent One Time Password (OTP) to verify your card. If successful, you can start using the Stanbic IBTC Naira Mastercard for Facebook ad payment.

At the first attempt, my card was declined, the same thing that happened to my Skye Bank Naira Mastercard when I try to use it some time ago but was later accepted after several attempts. So I decided to try again and Facebook accepted the Stanbic IBTC Naira Mastercard.


If you are using Stanbic IBTC, is your Naira Debit Card working for payment of Facebook ad?

Stanbic IBTC Naira Debit Cards Can Now Be Used For International Transactions

Stanbic IBTC is among the healthy banks in Nigeria and as a customer, I have been looking forward to when I can use my Naira Debit Mastercard to make payment online on foreign merchant sites. That was the one of the main reason I opened the account when other banks suspended their Naira debit cards from making international transactions. Little did I know that Stanbic IBTC also restricted their Naira Debit Card from been used for international transactions.

Naira debit card stanbic ibtc

But the good news is, Naira Debit Cards of Stanbic IBTC can now be used for international transactions. This means that you can make payment for Facebook ad, domain name registration, web hosting and other online purchases using their card.

Please note that monthly spending limit for web transaction has been pegged at $3000. Even if it was fixed at $1000, it still makes sense, or what do you think?

How To Remove Google Smart Lock On Flipboard App

If you are a user of Flipboard and you have downloaded the app from play store, there is an option to signup or login with your Email. When you log in with your Email (Gmail), your detail is automatically saved in the Flipboard app and it becomes locked. This is a result of the Google Smart Lock feature in the app.

What this means is, you can't use another account to login into that Flipboard app on your device. For instance, if you have two Flipboard accounts in which you use email to log in, the first one you use on the app will be the one that can only be used. Another email account won't work, this implies that you won't be able to use your second Flipboard account on that device.


I had the problem when I first installed the app on my phone. I log in with one of my accounts and I thought I could log out and then log in with another account. But no way, it was not possible. I contacted the Flipboard team but the feedback didn't help to resolve the problem.

After much efforts, I found a solution and it worked.

How to disable the Google Smart Lock on Flipboard

Login to passwords.google.com and turn off Smart Lock for Passwords

Remove Google Smart Lock On Flipboard App
You can also delete the email account saved to the Flipboard app. With this, you can now log in with another Flipboard account on that app in your android phone.

I hope this works!

Flipboard Publisher: After Approval What Next?

There are benefits of becoming a news publisher on Flipboard. In one of my previous post, I wrote on how to become a Flipboard news publisher. If you have tried to apply and you weren't approved, you can retry again. If you were approved, what next?

When you submitted your RSS feed, you created a magazine that was private pending approval. Once your feed has been approved, the first thing is to make the magazine public so that people that easily find your content.



Build Your Presence

Initially, you must have created a magazine for the approval process, but after approval, you need to bring it to life. That is, organize it in a way it appeals to people. Work on the title and description. Create more magazine if you so desire and add relevant content.

Add the Flipboard Share and Follow Button to your website so your visitors can share your content with their Flipboard followers. As you can see below this post, I have added the Flipboard share button among the other social media share icons.

Share your Flipboard profile and magazines on social media so that people know about it and share your articles.

There is so much to Flipboard. There are millions of people searching for news, stories, and articles on the platform. You can get a grab of these surfers.

If you have been approved as a publisher, what has been your experience so far?
