Total Online privacy is something many are wanting but only close to none are getting, this will be changing as a UK company will be launching a Tor-enabled sim card soon.

Tor-enabled SIM Card is coming 2019

Until now, total online privacy has only been available for web surfing and it either requires an installation of a third party software, paying for a VPN(Virtual Private Network) or doing a series of configuration. After doing all this complete privacy is expected but not gotten because ISP and VPN providers still manage to put users under surveillance and invade privacies.

This is issue prompt Brass Horn, a UK based company to design a Tor-enabled sim card, Tor on its own is one of the ways to stay anonymous online and to access onion websites popularly known as dark-web. This Tor-enabled sim card requires no configurations to use reason been all configuration has been hard-coded into it, although the user still as to create an access point.

The Founder of Brass Horn, Llewellyn told Motherboard that is organization is “about sticking a middle finger up to mobile filtering, mass surveillance.” meaning his organization will be blessing UK residence with a close to perfect online privacy including anonymously facebook, twitter and several other social media that seems impossible to stay anonymous on.

Llewellyn will also be putting effort into building more nodes to improve Tor’s anonymity and also increasing its speed which is annoyingly slow irrespective on the ISP. This Tor-enabled sim card will also be providing protection to users should in case the user connect to Wi-Fi and also if users private IP was leaked, it will ensure it traces back to neither the user nor Brass Horn has its ISP, a beta test of this sim-card has already been released and it only available to Android users.

LG hasn’t been doing quite well in the mobile segment, although we saw a few smartphones from the company last year, perhaps this movement towards 6G technology might help revive her drowning mobile market.

The company just announced the opening of a dedicated 6G research centre to ‘lead in next-generation mobile telecommunications, located in the Yuseong District of Daejeon, South Korea.

According to the company, it will use the institute’s personnel and infrastructure to preemptively secure technology for 6G.

The company further said: “We want to secure core technologies for sixth generation wireless network ahead of time,”.

The transition from 5G to 6G will take up to 10 years, the company said but it wants to “prepare for the future industry”.

Your Android Lock Screen Pattern Can Be Hacked

When it comes to smartphone security, the Android smartphones has always been easy to crack open unlike it’s competitor OS, of course the Apple iOS. Apple’s iCloud security has made the iOS devices so popular in term of security. With this security option, even when your device is stolen, you can be rest assured that nobody can get to your data. But in the Android community, this can be done easily and your phone will become someone else’s phone in no time.

Now, however it even gets more insecure as researchers from the universities in Sweden and the UK have discovered new techniques in which Android smartphone can easily be unlocked. According to this research, your Android device can be hacked using your smartphone speaker and microphone to steal your unlock pattern.

The technique has been given an unofficial name “SonarSnop”. It works by forming a sonar system by using sound waves to track the position of your fingers on your phone’s screen.

However, before is hack can be initiated, a malicious app needs to be running on the phone emitting sound waves from the device speaker, while the bounced off waves from the user’s fingers are captured by the microphone to identify the pattern. This sound waves emitted by the app are in the range of 18kHz and 20kHz, and it impossible to be heard with the ears.

Interestingly, this hack has been testing on Samsung’s Galaxy S4 running on Android 5.0.1. The research paper of this test was published by Academics from Lancaster University in the UK and Linkoping University in Sweden. You can read the research paper here.

With the SonarSnoop technique, the researchers were able to cut down the number of possible unlock patterns by 70%.

Hacking smartphone using Sonar techniques is still a new technique and in experimental stage as of now. The results of this technique is not as accurate as one would expect. But the Sonar technology isn’t new as it is commonly used in submarins for locating obstacles and other underwater objects.

In case you’re wondering, Sonar (Sound Navigation and Ranging) basically is a system for the detection of objects under water by emitting sound pulses and detecting or measuring their return after being reflected.
