Every day we see hundreds of headlines in the technology sphere. Here at Uptodown we focus on the most important information related to the world of software, covering everything from the most relevant news items and articles on IT security to advice on online privacy.

Millions of people use Facebook every day to upload their photos and videos, comment on posts, or Like their favorite pages. Facebook, in turn, collects this extensive and exhaustive data and keeps it on its servers. Any person on your Friends list can get this info easily unless you’ve done something to remedy it. And now this is disturbingly more accessible thanks to a new webpage that scrapes Facebook to find out everything about you.

It would appear that Pokémon has enjoyed its stint on smartphones given that today it’s been announced that it’s getting another game for iOS and Android. After the success of Pokémon GO and the recent appearance of Pokémon Duel it makes sense that The Pokémon Company would dust off its gloves and make a new title exclusive to these two systems. It also appears that this new game will star one of Internetland’s favorite pokémon. 

Much as we love simultaneous releases on both iOS and Android, lots of apps still take eons to appear on one OS or the other. One of the most glaring of these cases is FaceAppa picture editor that’s been a huge hit on iOS for weeks already and has finally rolled out on the platform of the green droid. Now the question is: Was it worth the wait?

Facebook sure knows how to stay in the news. Changes and upgrades are rolling out every few days now – and this time they’re a bit controversial: Facebook has made several changes to videos, including playing sound automatically when you find a video in your News Feed.

It’s been months now that we’ve been awaiting the promised update to revamp Pokemon GO with new, second-generation Pokémon. But only this week have they finally announced the imminent update to come this week which will include – besides 80 new Pokémon – other features like more evolutions to both your classic creatures and those from the region of Johto and special berries with novel effects.

That every hit PC game has 100 clones and revisions for Android is as true as the fact that PC gamers constantly insist that “they don’t make ’em like they used to.” Hence the determination to save all the games that’ve impacted generations of gamers on platforms not suited at the start for replicating console controls. Here’s our list of some of the Android ports out there that promise to bring butterflies to the stomachs of all you diehard retrogamers out there.

When Facebook Lite appeared in 2015 we couldn’t imagine the waves it would make over time. The light version of the Facebook app has become indispensable for people who have weak connections – or simply don’t want to eat up all their memory with the gigantic original Facebook app. Amazingly, it’s now reached 200 million users, and this achievement is being celebrated with improvements to the app’s performance.

Two-step verification helps protect your online services, and is now available on most of the big-name chat and social network apps. The addition of this feature seems to have been in the works for a while, but only now has the latest WhatsApp beta incorporated a two-step verification system as extra protection. Here we explain what it is and how to set it up.

If there’s one tech company that continually tries to innovate in its apps, it’s Facebook. With updates rolling out almost weekly, Facebook never stops moving to include new features that make its service more complete. Today we’re talking about two novelties that deserve a look: weather updates and community notifications for disasters.

“Prevention is better than cure,” as they say (probably too often), and in many cases they’re probably not wrong.

You can never be too careful when it comes to protecting your phone, so we’ve picked out a couple useful tools here to help armor-plate your installed apps.
