Here’s a quick one to get us started. Amazon has a coupon page for prime members only. Available at Amazon.com/coupons. You won’t find anything surprising here. A page of all coupons currently available on Amazon. If you go directly to one of the products, you will see the same coupons that you see on the coupons page. This page brings them all together in one place. You can search by brand or select a category on the left side of the page to see available coupons for a specific category.
Obviously, just visiting that URL will take you there in your browser. On my Amazon mobile app, I typed “Amazon Coupons” into the app’s search field and landed on the Coupons page.
Sometimes when you visit a web page on your mobile device, you’re frustrated that the results aren’t what you expected. Websites can recognize that you are using a mobile device and send you pages in a different format than you would see in a desktop browser. Did you know you can request the desktop version of the website? Every browser I’ve used allows me to request the desktop site. How you do this varies by browser, but most browsers have a toggle in their menu that allows you to request a desktop site. See https://go.ttot.link/DesktopMode for instructions for most Android or iOS browsers.
Do you use a VPN when you’re on the go? If not, why? Be especially careful when connecting to WiFi in public places such as grocery stores, coffee shops, and restaurants. Just because a facility has a WiFi password doesn’t mean it’s secure. Last year in his December 1st and December 8th columns he talked about VPNs, and malicious people set up their own WiFi with the same name as the store and using the same password. We also talked about If you’re at a friend’s house, you probably don’t need to worry about her rogue WiFi. Because the chances of a malicious person getting close enough to set up her SSID masquerading as a friend’s house are slim to none. However, apartments are another matter. Neighbors can be villains.
Admittedly, to be safe, you should always use a VPN when connecting to WiFi while out and about. In my December 8th column, I mentioned a particularly good free one, Cloudflare’s WARP (https://www.cloudflarewarp.com/). Whether you’re an Android or iOS user, you can download it, turn it on, and keep it always on. WARP and in fact all VPNs have the concept of a “trusted network”. what is that? Since this is a WiFi network that is supposedly secure, we don’t want the VPN to be active while connected to it. Why trust the network? Using a VPN slows you down, drains your battery a little faster, and uses more data. In my humble opinion, it’s worth the overhead, but you can add any his WiFi network to your list of trusted networks if you want it out of the way.
Personally, I don’t have a reliable network. When I’m at home, I don’t want her Internet provider to know which sites I visit, even though I trust her WiFi network. I get enough ads as is and don’t need to give them a chance to target me with even more ads.
How do I set up trusted networks in the WARP app?[設定]->[詳細設定]and from there[信頼できるネットワーク]Choose. Enter the SSID of a trusted WiFi network to turn VPN off when you connect to that network, but protect you when you connect to other WiFi networks. Stay protected while using your phone.
You should know two more things.
1. In the WARP app settings, you can choose 126.96.36.199 or WARP. For full protection, be sure to select WARP. Selecting 188.8.131.52 only provides partial protection.
2. Some apps don’t like using a VPN (Netflix, etc.). WARP is good at figuring out such apps and excluding them from using the VPN, but if he comes across an app he doesn’t want to work, he can tell WARP to omit it from the VPN. .[設定]->[詳細設定]->[接続オプション]->[除外されたアプリの管理]Go to. There, in addition to the apps you’ve added, you can see which apps WARP is always excluded from. To exclude more apps,[管理]Tap the button and select the app that behaves strangely.
