The mighty Facebook seems to have fallen prey to its own greed and the obsessive desire to cash-in-on the trust of millions of users from around the world. According to several reports, the social giant has been caught red-handed; selling out the personal data of fifty million users to political data company Cambridge Analytica. Disturbed by this massive security breach, many of you would want to deactivate Facebook account on iPhone/iPad, Android, and Computer.
Keep in mind that when you deactivate Facebook, your account and profile won’t be visible to other people. Besides, people won’t be able to search for you. However, some information like messages you sent to friends could still be visible to others.
“Christopher Wylie, who worked with a Cambridge University academic to obtain the data, told the Observer: “We exploited Facebook to harvest millions of people’s profiles. And built models to exploit what we knew about them and target their inner demons. That was the basis the entire company was built on.” – TheGuardian

You might be wondering about how you can manage your iCloud account with your Apple Watch. Well, there’s good news and bad news.
If you’re looking for a way to manage your iCloud account on your Apple Watch, you’re out of luck. As much independence as the Apple Watch had gained in the last couple of years, particularly with the cellular version, it’s still a satellite device to the iPhone.
Because of this, almost everything about your Apple Watch’s connection to iCloud is managed through the iPhone, and not even through the Apple Watch app. The one exception to this rule is your contact and calendar data. While this data still comes from your iPhone, if you use iCloud calendar and contacts, you can reset the data on your Apple Watch and automatically re-sync the data from your iPhone to your watch if you’re having problems.
But otherwise, if you’re looking to, for instance, change the iCloud account that your Apple Watch uses while keeping it paired to your iPhone, you’ll need to handle that all on your iPhone.
If you’re going to do that, you might also need to disable Activation Lock and remove the Apple Watch from your current iCloud account.
If all else fails and you’re still having iCloud problems, you can always completely erase your Apple Watch’s content and settings. You’ll need to follow these steps to do so:
Tap Erase All Content and Settings.
Then you’ll need to set up your Apple Watch with your iPhone again, and you’ll have the option of restoring your watch from a backup.

Fornite Battle Royale is an incredibly popular game, and unfortunately, that means its attracted lots of scammers. Typically, these scammers will spam you with offers for free Vbuck (Fornite’s in-game currency) in the form of links.
Here’s the thing: There are no free Vbucks. Epic Games has confirmed this.It’s all a scam to get your Epic Games account login.
The first thing to do to protect yourself is don’t click on any of these links. Never, ever. But the other thing you can, and definitely should do, is to add two-factor authentication, a.k.a 2FA.
Even though Fornite battle Royale hasn’t officially launched on iOS yet, it’s never too early to set up 2FA to protect your account to be compromised; here’s how you set it up!
Here’s how to add some extra security to your Epic Games account, using 2FA:
Open the menu on the Fornite website. It’s the hamburger menu button in the top right.
Tap Password & Security.
