There is a way to invite someone to write us in the messaging app without having to send you our phone number first.
URLs are known as web addresses, those thanks to which we access any page on the Internet. We have known and used the services that shorten web addresses for many years so that they are more bearable when we share them on social networks or short messages. In this way, the link text is significantly reduced and is much more bearable through a social network or messaging app, as is the case of WhatsApp. Now we tell you how to share our phone to write to us on WhatsApp, without having to send the phone number.
Share with more privacy.
It is a situation that can occur several times, one in which we want to invite a person to write to us through WhatsApp, but without directly sending the phone number. Of course, for someone to write to us on WhatsApp, they must be able to enter our number in the contacts and then write to us. With the process that we share today, you can skip all that method and directly write to us without having to give them directly the written phone number. Because what they receive is a short web address, which contains the principal characters so that when it is entered in a web browser, it allows us to write to that number, ours in this case directly.
For this, we must go to the Whats. Ac website that has been created precisely to share the number through a reduced web address. In this way, our number becomes a web address, which hides the phone number, which only appears when we are going to write the message. When we enter this web page, we must fill in two fields. One of them is the telephone number, which we must fill in with the country code. Once entered, we can optionally type a name or nickname that we can add to the web address to be generated.
It can be your name or any other denomination you can think of. When you have it, you have to click on the “generate” button, after which we will see the link generated at the bottom of the screen. In this case, the web address would be like “ http://whats.ac/name you have chosen ” that will be what the person with whom you share the phone receives in this way. Whoever receives it will be able to paste this address in the browser and directly access the WhatsApp page to send a message to a certain number, even if we do not have it among the contacts. This way, you can write to us directly without having to be manipulating the contacts agenda first.
It is a reasonably elegant and discreet way to share our phone number so that it does not wander in the body of a message, either an email or a messaging app. It is a quick and direct way to make it easier for someone to write to us on WhatsApp immediately.
This bug on Instagram allows hackers to take over your smartphone
Recently, researchers from Check Point Security have found a dangerous bug in the Instagram application where this bug can be used by hackers to take over the victim’s smartphone.
Yes, not just taking over the Instagram account, this bug is known to allow hackers to take over the user’s smartphone and it is possible that the victim’s smartphone will be planted by even more dangerous malware.
To take advantage of this bug, the hacker will first send a photo containing malware code to the victim via Direct Messages. Only with that, the smartphone of Instagram users can be taken over.
This is because the Instagram application itself initially has access to the user’s smartphone so that if the Instagram application is hacked, the user’s smartphone can also be hacked.
Luckily, Instagram is now known to have fixed this bug. If you are now using the latest version of the Instagram application, then you are safe from these dangerous bugs.
As a result of the discovery of this bug, the head researcher from Check Point, Yaniv Balmas, appealed to all smartphone users to be more careful in giving permission to the applications they install, be it trusted applications such as Instagram.
“People should pay more attention to every permission an application has. Most people don’t care about the access request message and immediately press the yes button. But that is the start of the cyber attack process,” said Yaniv Balmas as dictated by Ubergizmo.
Twitter Starts Testing Voice Messages Feature in DM
After rolling out the audio tweets feature for iOS last June, Twitter is now continuing to experiment to help users communicate more easily on its services, one of the things it does is release voice messages.
Recently the Product Manager for Direct Messages on Twitter, Alex Ackerman-Greenberg told The Verge that currently his party is ready to test the voice messages feature in DM. Later this feature will be tested for the first time in Brazil.
Alex said that later this feature could allow users to send audio messages with a duration of up to 20 seconds via Direct Messages. The reason is that previously users could only send text and images
Just like voice tweets, voice messages in DM come with a fairly simple interface. There is only a play / pause button and information on the duration of the received audio message.
“The in-line recording experience makes it easier for users to send messages as part of their natural conversation flow,” said Twitter.
It is known that Twitter also presents a report message button which can later be used if a user misuses the voice DM feature. It seems that Twitter has already thought about all the impacts that might occur if the feature was released.
Of course, the presence of this feature makes Twitter now one step closer to its rivals, namely Facebook and Instagram, which have long presented an audio message feature in their Direct Messages.
You Can Now Schedule Tweets For The Time And Day You Want
The social network Twitter, which competes with platforms like Facebook, announced this Thursday a new tool for users.
Now you can write a tweet and, instead of posting it right away, schedule the date and time for when you want it to be published. For now, the option is only available through internet browsers and not in the app.
In November, Twitter had already advanced that it was testing this tool, which, for example, only exists through third-party services on other social networks such as Reddit and Instagram.
The advantage of this new mechanism, which can be activated by pressing the calendar button when writing a tweet, lies in the user’s option to choose a more opportune time to publish content without being online. In addition, the measure allows “Twitter user at the pace” of each user, as announced by the platform.
Another novelty presented is the possibility of saving drafts of tweets. That is, if you write a tweet and do not want to delete it, you can leave it written to continue writing later. These are not new measures and have been implemented by other services.
In the case of Gmail, Google’s free email service, scheduling of electronic messages became integrated into the platform in April 2019.

In recent days Twitter has been implementing changes to the platform. The one that created the most controversy was the addition of fact-check labels in user publications that the platform considers to violate its rules and propagate false news.
This led to one of the tweets of Donald Trump, president of the USA, having this note. This Friday, after Trump signed a decree that could change the way Twitter makes this regulation, the social network again left a notice in one of the president’s tweets.
