top 10 internet hacks

The Internet is always full of surprises.

And the following Internet hacks will surely make your life easier.

Put them to use and see for yourself.

  1. Forgot logging out of Facebook on your friend’s device? Do this

Logged into Facebook on your friend’s device and forgot to log out?

That surely is a scary situation.

So how can you combat that?

It’s simple.

You can log out of your friend’s device remotely by navigating to “Settings” on the right hand corner, then “Security”, then check the “When you’re logged in” option.

There, you can close any of the open sessions that you want no matter what device they’re currently on.

Give it a try.

  1. Want to search something you don’t remember for sure? Try this

Have you ever wanted to search for a song but you couldn’t remember the lyric entirely?

No problem.

Just use asterisks (*) and quotation marks (” “) in your search phrase in Google.

An asterisk means there is a missing word or phrase.

And the quotation marks will make sure your search phrase is in the exact order.

For example, if you type in the search form “Clap along * like a room * a roof”, Google might return the lyric from the song Happy of Pharrell Williams.

It’s “Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof” by the way.

  1. The best way to surf the web silently?

Don’t know what incognito or private browsing means?

Then it’s time to learn how to use it for your own advantages.

Pretty much every major web browsers do support you with private browsing.

Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer, you name it.

The way you use this kind of browsing is to browse the web without keeping tracks of where you’ve visited.

So, apart from some sensitive content (if you know what I mean), you can easily use private mode to search for other important information without letting others know about it.

Things like ideas for a surprise Christmas gift, or symptoms of a health issue that you don’t want your loved ones to know about yet.

Use it to your advantages.
