Let's be perfectly clear: Sexting will never be 100 percent safe but a lot of people are going to sext anyway. And that's fine! At PCMag, we believe very strongly in not yucking someone's yum. You'll always be taking some risk when you send or receive naughty messages, photos, or videos. If you do not want to take any risks, you should not sext. Period. For everyone else, we humbly present these tips for making your titillating messages a little more secure. We originally tackled this subject in 2015, but in light of the Jeff Bezos/National Enquirer blackmail scandal we're dusting it off and updating it for 2019. What Is Sexting, and Why Are People Doing It?

Hackers have broken the iris-based authentication in Samsung's Galaxy S8 smartphone in an easy-to-execute attack that's at odds with the manufacturer's claim that the mechanism is "one of the safest ways to keep your phone locked." The cost of the hack is less than the $725 price for an unlocked Galaxy S8 phone, hackers with the Chaos Computer Club in Germany said Tuesday.

Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is a giant ape-like creature that is said to roam the Pacific Northwest. There is scant physical evidence that such creatures exist, but Bigfoot buffs are convinced that they do, and that science will soon prove it.While most sightings of Bigfoot occur in the Northwest, the creatures have been reported all over the country. There are many native myths and legends of wild men in the woods, but Bigfoot per se has been around for only about 50 years. Interest in Bigfoot grew rapidly during the second half of the 20th century, spurred by magazine articles of the time, most seminally a December 1959 "True" article describing the discovery of large, mysterious footprints the year before in Bluff Creek, California.If you don't believe in Bigfoot (singular or plural), you're not alone. According to a 2007 Baylor Religion Survey, only 16 percent of Americans said that Bigfoot "absolutely" or "probably" exist, with 44 percent responding "probably not" and about … [Read more...] about Bigfoot: Man-Monster or Myth?
