Mumbai, October 23: According to the current status acquired from the Me Too campaign, every woman living in this violent world has been molested, assaulted and sexually harassed at some point in their lives.

  • Although the world knew this happening since matters relating to our sexual issues are considered as a taboo in our society, the people pretended to be dumbfounded to take the issue seriously under the law.
  • After getting disclosed to the public this time with Me too campaign on social media, as initiated by actress Alyssa Milano, the pain we feel is something that mere words can’t explain.

The Me Too protest doing the rage on social media has brought forth stories from women around the globe who didn’t open up until recently, about such cases because they were victimised.

It all started with several Hollywood actresses announcing up publicly about their painful incidents of sexual allegations against Harvey Weinstein that were kept hidden for years. With one woman supporting the other, the Me too campaign arose high to an increased extent whereby women shared horrifying stories of rape and sexual assault, and so did the standup comedian, Mallika Dua or our Makeup Didi.

“Me Too … in my own car. My mother was driving while he sat at the back with his hand under my skirt the whole time. I was 7. My sister was 11. His hands went everywhere inside my skirt and on my sister’s back. My father who was in a different car dislocated the bastard’s jaw with his bare hands later that night.”

If you are one of them irrespective of men or women reading this, we know you too have been through such disastrous incidents. It’s time to realize that we were overthrown to put down our voices and that by supporting our stories forward as a part of the Me too campaign, it’s not us who should be ashamed of but those who presume to have an upper hand over the other gender.

Instagram Testing a New in-app Account Recovery Process

The new recovery process is aimed at letting users recover an account from within the app itself, rather than having to lean on the security team

To offer more assurance in recovering hacked accounts, Facebook-owned messaging app Instagram is testing a new in-app account recovery process.

To control cases where the hackers alter username and contact data linked to the accounts, Instagram is offering a safeguard which would prevent any username from being claimed for a “period of time” after account changes, whether it is a hack or a voluntary change.

As part of the new test process, for recovery, users are being asked to fill in their personal information such as their original email address or phone number and later send them a six-digit code to the contact information of their choice, Engadget reported on Sunday.

The new method is intended to ensure account recovery even if the hacker alters the username and contact information linked to the account.

With this process, the photo-messaging app also intends to prevent hackers from using email or phone number codes to take over accounts from different devices, the report said.

For now, details on the wider availability of this in-app remains unclear, although the username lockdown has been made available to all Android users now which is being deployed to iOS users as well.

Presently, to recover a hacked account, users have to either wait for a recovery email or fill out a support form, making the process time-consuming.

The new recovery process is aimed at letting users recover an account from within the app itself, rather than having to lean on the security team.

Instagram’s decision comes two months after its parent company Facebook admitted to have “fixed a security issue” that had been saving passwords of 200-600 million users in plain text and “readable” format since 2012, which were also searchable by over 20,000 of its staff members. (IANS)
