31439357870_92a5e1987a_b

How to Turn Off Auto brightness in iOs11? You can still turn off auto brightness in iOs 11, but Apple has, for God knows what reason, made it harder for users to disable it. Many users absolutely despise the auto-brightness feature, because it adjusts the brightness of the screen, without their consent. For instance, if you’re using your smartphone is sunny conditions, the display screen would automatically become brighter to increase visibility. This feature isn’t all that bad, considering it saves battery life. But still, nothing trumps user autonomy.

How to Download Twitter Data With Ease

twitter-2151054_960_720

When did I create my Twitter account? Have I added my Twitter account on another device, too? How many locations have I accessed my Twitter account from? Whom did I add in my contacts on Twitter? What about the number of my Twitter logins? To know the answer to all these questions you must first know how to download twitter data.

Twitter can give you the answers to all these questions – and others like this – with just a few clicks. If you think it was not keeping a record of your recent activities and associated tasks, you were wrong. Now you can actually access every single detail about every single feature you might have or have not performed on your Twitter account.

However, Twitter actually went a step further. It not only allows you to access and view those details, it also enables users to download and therefore keep a permanent record of their Twitter data.

The Twitter data access features is a shortcut for:

  • Editing you personal account information.
  • Changing your username, password etc.
  • Reviewing your profile.
  • Viewing your Twitter address book.
  • Changing ads audience options – which audiences can see/not see your profile in their suggested profiles section.
  • View your Twitter account activity.
  • View which apps and devices your Twitter account is logged in/was logged into from.
  • Change the options of ads appearing/not appearing on your Twitter feed.
  • And so much more…

    Most importantly, this feature makes it easy for users to know whether someone else has been using their account. At times, when an account is hacked, Twitter temporarily closes it down. But through the data access feature, you can actually review the activity which might have been a likely cause of twitter closing down your account temporarily.

    Step-by-Step: How to Download Twitter Data

    Here are the few simple steps you need to follow to access your Twitter data using Windows web browser.

    1. Go to https://twitter.com.

    2. Log in.

    3. Once logged in, click on your profile picture on your screen’s right-hand side.1
    4. Go to Setting and Privacy.2
    5. On the left-hand side of your screen, you will see a bunch of tabs, as shown below.3
    6. Scroll down the list of these tabs, until you see the tab that says Your Twitter Data.4
    7. Twitter will redirect you to a page that looks something like this. The topmost heading will show you your Twitter data related to your account.5
    8. After the account section, you will find your account history data.6
    9. Next to that will be your app and devices data.7
    10. After that, you can see your Twitter account activity.8
    11. Lastly, you can access your Twitter ads section.9
    12. At the end of this page, you will find the option to download all the sections shown above.10
    13. Once you make the request, Twitter will e-mail you your entire Twitter data. That e-mail will look something like this:11
    14. There will be an attached PDF file of your entire Twitter data, as accessed from the web browser. You can download it and hence have a permanent record saved of your Twitter data.12

    FAQs

    Can I edit my account settings(s) using my Twitter data section?

    Yes, you can. Next to each section on the data page, there is an option to edit the corresponding section.

    How many times can I clear my Twitter data?

    As many times as you want; Twitter does not keep an irreversible data. You can clear it up as many times as you deem necessary.

    What if I lose the data file Twitter e-mailed me?

    You can go to the Twitter data page and request it again. There is no limit nor any specified number of hours/days after which you would have to wait to make another request.

How Do I Change the Name of My Phone? (Wifi,Bluetooth and Device Name)

31086024513_390232798a_b

How do I change the name of my phone? I get it! We all want our phones to have cool names. It’s no surprise; We want to separate ourselves from the herd. We want our phones to mimic the features of living breathing human beings. Giving names, somehow creates a sentimental connection between the user and a smartphone. Instead of saying that you have an Android device, you can actually call your phone by name, which is so much cooler. “Emily, Could you hand me Darth Vader?” Okay, you don’t have to name your phone that verbatim, but I mean, if Joey — from the highly popular sitcom FRIENDS — named his TV Stevie, why can’t we? Who’s stopping us?

In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to change the name of your phone with ease.

Step-By-Step: How Do I Change the Name of My Phone? (With Visual Instructions)

Note: This tutorial has been crafted, using a Huwaei Mate, but the steps are similar in other Android devices.

1. Open Settings.32078364_1628782823843050_509996202117300224_n
2. Go to About Phone
31939862_1725277507586206_2912037644013666304_n
3.  Tap Device Name31958071_1725279430919347_2272880552556101632_n
4. Edit Device Name31945586_1725277854252838_6785675421439492096_n
5. Select Save

See, hassle free and job done in no time at all! However, keep in mind that if you’re using a Google Nexus 6P, you won’t have this option available, which is a bummer.

Step-By-Step: How to Change Bluetooth Name of Android Device(With Visual Isntructions)

Some people are interested in changing the Bluetooth name of their devices. I get their reasons behind this too. Whenever we share data via bluetooth, we want our phones to come out as badass or gentile, depending if you rename your device to Don Corleone or Nacho Libre. Okay I’ll stop the movie references and start with the tutorial.

1. Swipe down from the top and tap the Bluetooth Icon.31959029_1628782797176386_1540911665963335680_n
2. Turn Bluetooth On.

3. Select Device Name.4
4.  Select Rename after renaming the device.31949923_1628782887176377_7027602274864070656_n

That’s it! You’re done. Now, every time you share media, files, or apps over Bluetooth, your self-appointed name will show up.

Step-By-Step: Change the Name of your WiFi on Android(With Visual Instructions)

Again, similar instructions to the bluetooth tutorial need to be followed here. Here’s how it’s done.

1. Swipe Downward on your home screen and tap the WiFi icon.
2. Tap WiFi preferences.31948467_1628782813843051_4041353995476795392_n
3. Go to Advanced>WifiDirect.31946618_1628782743843058_4217258091936219136_n
4. Select Rename Device on the top.31948881_1628782857176380_3543163451570388992_n
5. Edit Name and Tap OK.31959510_1628782773843055_2303904553034055680_n

Frequently Asked Questions

None Whatsoever! On the contrary, changing name makes your device easily identifiable.

Can I change my names in games on my Android device?

Depends on what game you’re playing. You can access the settings of that games to see whether it allows name changes or not.

How Do I change the Name of my phone if it’s a Google Nexus 6p?

Unfortunately, in the Nexus series, you’re unable to change the generic names of your device. Google still has removed this features for God knows what reasons. Maybe they thought it was useless and didn’t contribute much i terms of user experience but whatever the reasons were, it’s gone. You can however still change your bluetooth and wifi name to compensate for it.
