How to Block Opera VPN From Leaking Your IP Address

Posted by Rahul Gupta
I won't be wrong if I say that Opera browser provides a much faster surfing experience when compared to other web browsers. Android client of Opera i.e. Opera Mini is lightweight, easy to use & no doubt faster than other mobile versions of top most browsers. Recently, Opera Mini got updated with lots of features, and the users loved most of them.

The feature that I loved the most was VPN or Virtual Private Network. Yes, now you don't need to buy a VPN client to stay anonymous on the web. Till now, we all were using either some free VPN services or paid clients but after the addition of VPN with Opera Mini, everyone can have secure & reliable browsing experience without spending a single penny.

If you're not aware of VPN, then let me explain it first.

What is VPN?

A VPN or Virtual Private Network is a way to add privacy and security to your online browsing. It can also be used to unblock websites restricted at any place. Earlier, some social media sites including Facebook and YouTube were blocked in Pakistan then at the time VPN was the only option left for the people to access these websites. 

Whenever you try to access Spotify from other countries, expect the United States then an error message will appear which will not allow you to open it. To resolve this error message, you can use VPN. It will hide your original IP address and set a virtual one to stay anonymous, and access blocked websites. 

That's what Opera Mini VPN does; it will mask you original public IP and allows you to surf securely. Now you don't need to download and install any third party client.

However, people have claimed that Opera Mini leaks their IP address and location sometime. It just means that your original location and IP address is not hidden from the websites you are browsing. But don't worry, here's a solution to fix IP leak in Opera Mini browser. 

How to Fix IP Leak in Opera Mini

It's not any hack or vulnerability. There is an extension named WebRTC Leak Prevent, it allows us to resolve IP leak issue.
  • Install this extension in your browser.
  • Go to Menu>>Extensions>>More Extensions. You can use shortcut key Ctrl + Shift + E alternatively. 
  • There you can see all the installed extensions.
  • Search for WebRTC Leak Prevent and click on Options button.
  • Here you will find a drop-down list next to IP handling policy.
  • Now expand the drop-down menu and select Disable non-proxied UDP (force proxy).
  • Tap Apply Settings button.
  • Now check the box that says "Prevent WebRTC from using routes other than the default route" & "Prevent WebRTC from using non-proxied UDP."
Block IP leak in opera mini
  • That's it. Now VPN won't leak your IP address information to other sourcers over the Internet.
You will come across this issue in not only Opera's VPN rather most of the VPN clients somehow send your personal data to online websites. So it's always required to do some manual setting to overcome this error. Otherwise, your data won't encrypt and can be stolen by the hackers.

Monster cares about your job search and your privacy as well. This app requires a bit more work because you have to make you own login, but from there it is all uphill with Monster.

It is available on both Android and iOS versions.

# Stay in Contact
Staying in touch with your future employers and managers can be of utmost importance when you are on the hunt. Thus, make sure you try these apps to keep in touch with your future colleagues.

3. Gmail (Android | iOS)

Gmail
If you ever wondered if there’s a better and more functional email app than Gmail, you can put your questions to rest. There isn’t. Gmail helps you organize your emails into categories which can be of immense help when applying for jobs and receive dozens of automated answers from email bots. That way you can weed out the useless emails and focus on the ones that require your attention and could lead to you landing a major gig!

4. Skype (Android | iOS)

Skype
Skype is an excellent way to stay in contact with your friends from college, but more than that it can help you land some unparalleled jobs overseas. In recent years Skype made some serious steps forward in improving the quality of their calls when there are more than just two people. 

Also, you can pay just a few dollars and make hours and hours of calls through Skype and call both cell phones and landlines. If you need to talk to some employers, and you don’t have the chance to do it in person, feel free to ask them for a Skype call. With both video and audio calls available Skype is surely one of the best apps to stay in contact with your employees overseas.

# Time Management Apps
Staying on top of your obligations and managing your days right is not a question of whether you should do, but how to do so and by what means. Here are two apps that will help you stay on top of your duties.

5. Fantastical 2 (iOS)

Fantastical 2
Fantastical 2 is a stand out the app for several reasons: it is comfortable to use, its User Interface is very friendly and fun, its organizational features are by far ahead of its competitors, and it is also compatible with Google Cloud and iCloud! You can quickly go through this app without too much clicking and move around. If the default theme doesn’t fit your needs, you can always switch to some other theme offered for free. However, the downside is that having this app on your iPhone will cost you at least 5 USD.

6. Sunrise Calendar (Android | iOS)


Sunrise Calender

If you don’t want to pay 5 dollars for a calendar app, you can always opt out and go for the free to use Sunrise Calendar. However, since Microsoft has bought the team that made this app, its fan base started getting smaller and smaller. Why? Well, Microsoft has integrated most of Sunrise’s features to MS Outlook. The iOS version of this app will most likely never be updated again, but if you like it so much, I suggest trying MS Outlook.

# Productivity Apps
Emailing employers are, as we have already seen, a major part of searching for a new job. That is why you should have these two apps at hand when browsing through your inbox:

7. Save as PDF (iOS)

Save as PDF
PDF (Portable Document Format) is one of the core file formats in the job searching game. Once you start emailing people and putting yourself out there, you will be faced with lots of files in attachments and multitude of different formats. This app will help you save over 20 different formats as a PDF and decide what to do next with it! As soon as you download it on your device, you can manipulate the file in some different ways.

8. PDF to Word (iOS)

PDF to Word
PDF to Word is a great app you find yourself in need of a quick conversion while you’re on the go. This app is pretty straightforward and efficient at what it does. Once you convert your file, you can open it in the app of your choice. The layout, charts, tables, images and text will remain the same as in the original file. One more great thing about this app is that it converts both original and scanned PDFs. 

So, with PDF to Word, you will have a reliable app that can turn your resume in a matter of seconds if you need to fix something, or perhaps search through the file to remove unnecessary parts.

To move ahead in your profession or industry, you’ll need a set of excellent presentation skills. After all, presentations are the only things through which you communicate with your clients, business, employees and other necessary people, and the essence of an excellent presentation is the PowerPoint presentation design.

The website is an online resource for templates and often comes handy for all the business employees, marketing professionals, college students, speakers, different organizations and independent individuals.

Featured Powerpoint Templates
Apart from Microsoft PowerPoint, the website also offers templates compatible with LibreOffice and Keynote. You can try with Google Slides as well, but for Google Slides users there is another free resource I would recommend to get free templates: Free Google Slides Templates.

Dynamic & Animated PPT Presentations

FPPT hosts a large number of Free Animated PowerPoint Templates apart from static online templates. The one thing that makes animated templates stand apart from the static ones is that they tend to attract more audience than regular templates during a presentation. So, if you’re familiar with all the features and the brilliant functionalities that come with it, then it is always preferred to opt them. 

Also, FPPT provides reviews and analytical templates from other Third-Party Websites that also include built-in video animations and trust me; there is nothing better than a video presentation as static ones ultimately become quite tiresome and eventually you would lose most of your audience. 


Talking about the recommendations and the most suitable templates, this website has categorized thousands of templates into several categories that make it more unique to choose from.

  • Tailored & Categorized for Specific Needs. 
  • Premium Designs & Beautiful Graphics. 
  • Free to Download along with Royalty free sources. 
  • Third Party Templates & Reviews also Available.

Cons

  • The downside is that not all the templates are fully customizable. For serious presenters and business people, there are other professional PowerPoint templates resources out there to check out. 
  • Most of the templates include a watermark. Even if you can remove the watermark by hiding the FPPT logo by yourself, check the terms of use to make sure it is a permitted practice. 
  • Lack of support. Even if the templates are provided for free, the site does not offer support for the content.

Final Verdict

Hopefully, browsing all these templates is a fun task to get introduced to more kinds of templates and since they are all free, so might end up downloading dozens of design for your same project. To avoid this confusion, it is better to search the templates through tag clouds and all the respective categories.

All in All, FPPT.com is the best resource to download free PowerPoint templates with great designs and beautiful transitions. You can use these templates for your business presentations, educational purposes, organization portfolios or even invitation cards. There are endless possibilities to use and customize these templates according to your needs.

Simplest Way to Install Unverified Add-ons in Firefox

Posted by Rahul Gupta
No doubt that a person concerned about the security would always choose Mozilla Firefox over Google Chrome. This is only because of the high-end security and encryption provided by the Mozilla to their users. However, Firefox is not recommended when you're having low-speed Internet connection due to its high data usage. At that time one can go for Google Chrome for fast and reliable surfing. 

Similar to Google Chrome and other known browsers there are thousands of Add-ons available for Mozilla Firefox too. You can find them in Menu>Add-ons quickly. There are some websites which provide extensions for Firefox browser, but their add-ons are not listed in the store of Firefox browser. Such type of extensions is called unsigned. 

Earlier, people could easily install any add-ons whether it's signed or unsigned but after the update 43, it got disabled by the company. From version 43, one could no longer install them. You will get a security warning saying "Firefox has prevented this site from installing an unverified add-on" whenever you try to install them in your browser. 
Firefox has prevented this site from installing an unverified add-on
The only purpose behind the blocking of unproven add-ons is the security of their users. It can happen that the add-on you are trying to install contains malicious Viruses or Trojans. And no doubt that will wreck your system. 

Still, if you are willing to install an extension not listed in the Firefox gallery then here's a trick which will let you install any unsigned add-ones. You just need to bypass this security notification, and you're done.

Note: - Use this method only in the case if you're confirmed about the safety of the extension.

How to Install Unverified Add-ons in Firefox 

Simply follow these simple to implement steps:
  • Enter about: config in your address bar and hit enter.
  • You might come across a security warning saying This might void your warranty!
  • Ignore it, just tap I'll be careful, I promise!
  • On the next page, you can notice all the settings to customize Firefox.
  • Now enter xpinstall.signatures.required (enter the exact text as it's case sensitive) in the search bar. It will automatically search for the particular setting.
Firefox Setting
  • Notice the Value tab; it should be True by default. 
  • Double click on the setting to set it False. That's it.
  • Now you can get Install button for unverified add-ons too.
Restrictions are applied just to ensure your safety. Don't ever try to install an add-on if you're not sure about its security. It can harm your system or crash it forever. For any query don't forget to comment below.
