need to know

Facebook unveils new privacy features – but is it too late? What happened? Facebook used its annual F8 developer conference (www .f8.com ) to unveil a range of new features, many of which focused on privacy. The move follows a year of negative press for the company, from the Cambridge Analytica data-sharing scandal to a security breach that affected 50 million users, as well as wider concerns about the impact of social media on mental health and children.

Dock solves this problem by letting friends and family connect to your Wi-Fi network simply by touching the device with their phones – receiving the password through NFC – or scanning its QR code with their cameras. It’s encased in oak or ash, depending on which model you choose, and its creators are planting trees to make up for the wood they use. They hope to raise £16,000 by 29 May.…
