Instagram rolls out Two-factor authentication. Instagram's two-factor authentication is now available to everyone. Two-factor authentication was initially announced almost a year back in February 2016 to select users. In a post on its official blog, Instagram today announced that two-factor authentication is now live for all users.

Two-factor authentication tool adds an extra layer of security to your Instagram account by requiring a code every time you log in. Tap the gear icon on your profile and choose Two-Factor Authentication to turn it on.

Additionally, soon you may notice a screen over sensitive photos and videos when you scroll through your feed or visit a profile. While these posts don't violate Instagram's guidelines, someone in the community has reported them and our review team has confirmed they are sensitive. This change means you are less likely to have surprising or unwanted experiences in the app. If you'd like to see a post that is covered with a screen, simply tap to reveal the photo or video.

BlackBerry Privacy Shade app for Android released - Keep spying eyes at bay. BlackBerry has today introduced a new app called Privacy Shade. With the app - available for any BlackBerry powered by Android running Android 5.0 or higher  - you can block parts of your display so that other people can't see it, allowing you to read your personal content at any time without worrying about people spying on you.

Privacy Shade prevents people around you from seeing your screen by blocking out everything except for a small view area that you control, while still letting you interact with the full screen.

View Size
When the app is enabled, you have a few options to help you control what can be viewed on the display. To give you better control over what can be seen on your display, the Privacy Shade app lets you look at your screen in two ways: rectangle view or circle view. By tapping the View Area icon, you can switch between the two, depending on which makes it easier to see whatever you're looking at.

Rectangle view really useful to view my messages, emails, and any other text document. The circle view is great for navigating through your device because you can easily drag the circle over the display to select the apps you want to open.

Transparency
You also have the power to control how dark or light the blocked display is with the Transparency setting. If you increase the transparency to 100%, the app can also double as a brightness filter to take the strain off your eyes at night.

View Area
With the View Area options, you can switch from blocking only a portion of your screen to blocking the entire screen to make it hard for those snoopers to see what's on your device.

Quick Access
Privacy Shade can be accessed easily in any of three ways:
+ BlackBerry Privacy Shade can be assigned a Swipe Shortcut if you own a BlackBerry Android device (PRIV, DTEK 50/60)
+ If you own a BlackBerry DTEK 50/60, you can assign BlackBerry Privacy Shade to your Convenience Key
+ BlackBerry Privacy Shade can also be enabled through an optional dedicated notification in the notification tray on any Android device.

Clips also introduces Live Titles, a breakthrough feature that lets users create animated captions and titles using just their voice. Fun effects including comic book filters, speech bubbles, shapes and full-screen animated posters help bring out the personality in videos made with Clips.

Clips lets users create multi-clip videos on iPhone or iPad without timelines, tracks or complicated editing tools. Touch and hold a single button to shoot live video and photos, or add them from the Photo Library. Then add artistic filters, speech bubbles, shapes or emoji. Users can also add full-screen posters with animated backgrounds and customizable text. Clips has dozens of music soundtracks to choose from, and they automatically adjust to match the length of a video.

With Live Titles in Clips, users can add animated captions and titles using just their voice. Captions are generated automatically as a user speaks, and appear on screen perfectly synced with the user’s voice. Users can mix and match different styles, and tap any title to adjust text and punctuation, or even add inline emoji. Live Titles supports 36 different languages.

Videos made with Clips can be shared directly to popular social networks and video websites, including Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo and more. When sharing with friends in Messages, Clips can suggest who to share with based on the people who appear in the video, and the people a user shares with most often. When a suggested name is selected, Clips inserts the video right into Messages so it's ready to send with one tap.
