How to Scan Your Blogger Site for Malware Script

Written by  
While choosing a Blogger template people often gets confused whether this template is potentially free from any kind of malware or the developer have incorporated some malicious scripts. Probably, the ideal way to tackle such malicious templates is to scan them through different tools available on the internet. It is always a good thing to inspect your Blogger site on a daily basis by scanning it for potential malware and etc. In this article, we will discuss a few quick ways on How to Scan Your Blogger site for Potentially Malware scripts.


Sucuri:

Sucuri is a globally recognize and by far the best Blogger security scanner. They offer a Free-to-use tool that scans your site and provides basic information whether there is any potential risk or not. However, if you are too much worried about your site’s security then you must try its Paid version because it provides a lot of in-depth details. To sum things up, after installing Sucuri it would keep an eye on your site 24x7 and would prevent your site from any security threat. Sucuri Blocks the IP of those users who are found doing suspicious activities. Additionally, they also send alert messages if they notice something Fishy going on your site. This does makes sense.
Believe it or not some leading companies like BBC, CNN, PC World, TechCrunch, TheNextWeb and other companies recommend these guys. These guys are too good and know how to handle things when you are away from your site.

VirusTotal Scanner:

VirusTotal is a subsidiary of Google, which is a free service that helps you to analyze suspicious files and URLs enabling you to identify worms, trojans, malwares and other suspicious files incorporated on your site. It allows you to scan your site on different leading antivirus engines and website scanners. Since, it is a Google service so you can rely on it.
To scan your site on VirusTotal, go to https://www.virustotal.com/en/#url and enter the URL of your site. Now as soon as you hit enter it would inspect your site across different leading scanners and would provide you in-depth details about your site’s security, and safety.

Comodo Web Inspector:

Comodo site inspector is another free tool that does the job quite impressively. It scans your site on the basis of Blacklist Checking, Phishing, Malicious Activity, Malware Downloads and Suspicious Activity. Often hackers target templates to inject links so, it protects your site from any kind of spammy links. Though, it doesn’t provide comprehensive details like Sucuri and VirusTotal but it is worth to check this free tool.
Note: This tool takes a while to scan your site, so please be inpatient when it is working. You can minimize the window and can continue with your work. It would notify you once the scanning is done.

We hope this article would help you to protect your site from any kind of malware or malicious scripts. We want to make this article a great resource for Blogger users, so if you have any better suggestions, then leave them in the comment below.

Android 5.0 Lollipop tips and tricks UPDATE: secret games and keeping your personal stuff private

Written by  
For some of us it's taken an awfully long time, but Android 5.0 Lollipop has been made available for many Android devices and it shouldn't be long before the remaining ones get updated too. Here are some of the best Android 5.0 Lollipop tips & tricks to get the most out of Lollipop and avoid some of the biggest Android 5.0 Lollipop fails...

Enable silent mode

This is easily one of the biggest frustrations with Android 5.0 Lollipop: the official death of silent mode. We've shared a couple of tricks to enable silent mode on Android 5.0 Lollipop but one of our awesome Mods and all-round geniuses, Mattia from AndroidPIT.it has come up with a cool silent mode widget that'll flip your device to silent and back again – the app is getting the final touches on it right now, but we'll share it with you as soon as it's uploaded to the Play Store. In the meantime, check out the article linked above for all the current options.

Enable Developer Options

Lollipop's Developer Options enable you to tweak the system for improved performance and access various diagnostics, but they're hidden by default. To enable them, go into Settings > About Phone and tap "Build Number" seven times. This will unlock Settings > Developer Options where you can fiddle with settings to make your phone even more personal.

Lock screen security

Android 5.0 Lollipop comes with a variety of lock screen security options. From the classic pattern, PIN or password, to the more funky Lollipop options like Trusted Faces, trusted Devices or Trusted Places. Whatever lock screen method (or trusted bypass option) you choose, this should really be one of the very first thing's you do with any phone, any time. With the new Trusted options, having a complex pattern lock doesn't even have to be a pain as long as you're hanging out near home/work, have your smartwatch or Bluetooth headphones on or have your beautiful mug in view of your phone (which should always be attached to your body).

Chrome tabs

This isn't a huge problem, and maybe you like having your Chrome tabs dispersed throughout your recent apps stack, but for me it's as irritating a default setting as its possible to have. Fortunately, all you need to do to get your Chrome tabs back to their rightful place (you know, in Chrome) is to go to you Chrome settings and disable ''merge tabs and apps.'' Your Chrome tabs will now be accessible via the traditional button on the URL bar in the Chrome browser.

The Android Easter Egg

Go to Settings > About Phone and tap on "Android Version" four times. You should see a lollipop; tap and hold it and you can play the Flappy Bird-esque Easter egg game featuring the Android mascot. 

Priority interruptions

Priority interruptions are a key component of the Android 5.0 Lollipop feature set. Knowing that there are times and places when you don't want to be interrupted by anything except the most urgent notifications is a great addition tostock Android's functionality. It may take you a little while to set up exactly how you like it, but once you've got your priorities in order you can enjoy peace and quiet unless your mom's dog runs away or your girlfriend is texting you.

  • The absolute best Android 5.0 features

Control your phone with voice power

Want to launch a program? Just drag up the Home button until it displays the Google logo then say "OK Google, Launch Photos" - or whatever app you want to launch. Easy!

Dead Email app

For some odd reason, Google decided to keep the now useless Email app. When you launch it for the first time, you'll get a splash screen that tells you Gmail is now handling Email services and you can check the box fto launch Gmail instead. But why do that and have a hollow app sitting in your app drawer? Go to Settings > Apps > All tab and find Email and disable that useless waste of space. Your emails will still be handled by Gmail but you won't have the dead app icon cluttering up your precious app drawer.

  • Everything you need to know about Android 5.0 battery life

Stop people accessing your stuff

You hand your phone to a pal to show them something funny on Twitter, and before you know it they're in your photos looking at your stuff. You can stop that with pinned mode. Go to Settings > Security and turn on Screen Pinning. Now, when you tap the multitasking button you'll see a pin; tap that to pin the screen and nobody can get out of that screen until they tap and hold the back button and multitasking button simultaneously. You can PIN-protect that if you wish or get your phone to automatically lock itself when exiting the pinned screen.

Battery Saver mode

As soon as you have Android 5.0 Lollipop on your phone, go to Settings > Battery and hit the action overflow button at the top right. Hit ''Battery Saver'' and enable that bad boy. Pick your default battery life point (5% or 15%) and come to terms with the odd orange status and navigation bars you're going to have to learn to live with in order to take advantage of the awesome battery saving potential of Battery Saver.

Android 5.0 Lollipop problems and the solutions to fix them

Written by  
While Google is busy getting Android M ready for release, the various Android Lollipop updatesare still rolling out worldwide - and in some cases they're causing problems. While for some (myself included) the Android 5.0 Lollipop update has been a buttery, svelte, velvety fairytale, there are a few gremlins lurking beneath the bright colors. So if you want to know how to fix Android 5.0 problems, here's the solutions to the bugs we've heard about so far. We'll add more as more issues come up, so stay tuned as we share more Android 5.0 solutions.

Awful performance

For most people, updating to Android Lollipop has made their hardware happier, their teeth whiter and their days just dandy. But some users have encountered a range of issues, including freezes, crashes, stutter and lag. In-place upgrades can be the cause of that. Installing updates on top of updates on top of updates can eventually cause problems, so a factory reset might be on the cards, but have a look at your apps to check they’ve been updated to Lollipop. As with any performance issues, try switching off anything you don’t need to see if you can identify a specific cause.

Apps restart in background

One problem discovered in Android 5.0 is a bug that makes apps restart in the background. Though recent apps should remain running in the background for when you return to them later, even those apps with persistent notifications are being affected.
This eventually hurts device performance the longer it is up and running. So far, the only known way to fix this issue is, somewhat ironically, restarting your device. 

Missing system.img error

Lollipop issues can begin even before it is on your device. Some Nexus 5 owners flashing the factory image are experiencing problems with the installation of Android 5.0. During the procedure, they are informed of a missingsystem.img error.
It's actually not such a big deal. If this happens to you, you can flash the img files manually one by one instead of by using the flash-all.bat file. If you want a walkthrough, here's how to install Android 5.0 on the Nexus 5.

Android 5.0 Wi-Fi connectivity

It seems that we can't have an Android update without something going wrong with either Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or both. There's the usual range of solutions: toggle airplane mode on and off, forget and reconnect to the network, reboot your phone, restart your router or switch between the Wi-Fi frequency bands. As you can probably tell, this is the 'clutching at straws' list of solutions. You may have to wait for a patch from Google for the permanent solution.

Android 5.0 overheating

Assuming you haven’t left your device in direct sunlight or near a wicked child with a magnifying glass, overheating is often a byproduct of really hammering the phone with apps such as 3D games. Your case might be contributing to the problem too - phones are designed to be case-free, and heavy cases can interfere with heat dissipation. It’s also worth trying Safe Mode to see if the culprit is an app that’s misbehaving.

Android 5.0 battery bug

Every new installation of Android firmware results in some battery drain for some users. This is almost always because the update was applied over the top of existing firmware rather than installed 'clean'. There are a few things that could go wrong when everything is set up one way on your phone, and then the world shifts beneath its feet.
So now may be the time to bite the bullet, do a full backup and do a factory reset. You can do this via the Settings > Backup & Reset section or manually with the hardware buttons. Just search the site for your particular device and 'factory reset'.

Android 5.0 video playback bug

Nexus 7 (2013) owners have reported some bugs with video playback following the update to Lollipop. The issue doesn't seem to be restricted to any particular app, but YouTube is, of course, at the center of the furore. Any app that uses the default Android video player suffers though.
If YouTube is the issue for you, hit Settings > Apps and find the entry for YouTube. Clear the cache and try again or do a reboot for a temporary fix. You can always try uninstalling and reinstalling the app if problems persist. Some users are reporting that this has solved the problem, while others continue to suffer.
If you have a better fix let us know in the comments below. Worst case scenario: backup all your data, do a factory reset and clear the cache partition.

Android 5.0 OTA update error message

Nexus 9 owners who got the update patch immediately following the public rollout of the Android 5.0 update have been experiencing some issues with installing the OTA update. Basically, everything hangs up and then reverts back to the previous version without installing the update.
If you know what you're doing, it's a simple procedure to flash the latest factory image for the Nexus 9 yourself, otherwise you're going to just have to wait until Google issues another bug fix to fix the bug fix. Sound familiar?

Android 5.0 flashlight and camera bug

If you leave the flashlight on for a while, like when you're struggling to find your keys in the dark, and it automatically times out, then both the flashlight and camera will be busted until you do a reboot. This is pretty weird stuff but it occurred in the developer previews too. It's odd that Google didn't bother to iron this one out, as it's a pretty well known issue on the Nexus 5 already.

No silent mode, status bar ticker or Power button menu

Sadly, these are 'improvements' rather than problems. You can't simply volume down to silent mode (only to vibrate), there's no option other than Power Off when you long press the Power button, and the status bar ticker – that little scrolling preview of notifications – has been killed with fire in the latest version of Android.
We expect the masses to rise up shortly and some changes to be made, or at least some workarounds figured out if you're willing to tweak your phone a little. In any case, we've already explained how to enable silent mode on Android 5.0.

Android 5.0 OTA broken on modified devices

This probably shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, but Google doesn't necessarily want your rooting or otherwise modifying your device or firmware. So if you've modded your Android a bit, you may not be able to install the OTA update.
Fortunately the solution is pretty straightforward: simply flash a stock image again and OTA will be hunky dory once again. Check our article on broken OTA updates for Android 5.0 Lollipop for more info.

Android 5.0 fast charging isn't charging fast

This could be explained away by raised expectations: while Android supports Qualcomm's QuickCharge 2.0, not every phone does - and those that do don't always ship with a QuickCharge charger. There are also known incompatibilities with some third party fast chargers, so if you’re encountering issues with one it’s worth trying another charger (if you can) to see if the problem goes away. 

Android 5.0 Recent apps switcher

The recent apps card stack is a nifty new addition to multi-tasking in Lollipop. But not everyone is a fan. Some users are claiming that, the more apps they have stacked, the slower their performance becomes, while others are noticing that even when a card has been removed from the stack, it mysteriously returns. Even after a reboot your recent apps list will persist, so the only way to fix this one is to simply keep on swiping. Forever.

Chrome tabs

Chrome Browser on Lollipop is set by default to store new tabs in the recent apps list, but for many this represents one of the biggest Lollipop fails of all. Fortunately, all you need to do to change this is head to your Chrome settings and disable 'merge tabs and apps' to return to the more familiar 'number in a box in the URL bar' that brings up your tab list, as it always has.

Why is my Android device running slow? Here's how to speed up your phone

Written by  
You were probably blown away by how fast your Android phone was when you first bought it. But over time you may have noticed it running more slowly. That doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it, and there are several things you can do to stop it. Here are out best tips to help speed up your phone again.
android cpu frequency
Just about every phone on the market is liable to suffer from slow-down at some point. Your Galaxy S5 could slow to a crawl, or your Moto X (2014) may motor less than it used to. You may notice that apps take longer to load than they used to, that there is a lag between tapping an option and an app responding, or things may just feel generally sluggish. You don’t need to put up with this. Try some of the following techniques to speed up Android.

1. Identify the problem

The first thing to do is find out what is causing the problems: an app, multiple apps, the system itself? Trepn Profiler by Qualcomm will show you the real-time CPU load for individual cores, an overview of network traffic for both data and Wi-Fi, GPU loads and RAM usage (and that's just for starters).

Trepn can also produce app-specific or system-wide profiles and contains various methods for displaying accumulated data. You can save your profiled data for offline viewing and analysis and even have performance overlays on running apps. Once you've figured out your specific issue, you can move on to the solutions below.

2. Running out of space

All those photos you've taken and all of those apps you’ve installed can take their toll. Your phone needs a little breathing room to run smoothly and if it's running low on space, it can start to slow down.

You can check how much space you have left by heading to the Storage section of Settings. One of the first ways to free up space is to tap Applications can see which apps you can uninstall.

If you've been using your phone for a while, there are probably several apps you can remove. / © ANDROIDPIT
Tap the entry for an app you no longer need and then tap Uninstall. You can repeat this process as many times as necessary for any apps you feel you can live without.
There are other ways you can free up space. The files you have downloaded are probably still sitting in storage wasting space and can be removed. In storage, tap Downloads, select the files you want to remove and then tap the Bin button.

Downloads and app caches occupy valuable space that could be put to better use. / © ANDROIDPIT
Many of the apps you have installed use data caches in an attempt to speed up operations. This is effective up to a point, but if you are running short of space, it can actually be counter-productive. To free up this space, hit the Cached data option and then tap OK to confirm.
speedup4
Free up as much space as possible, and you might be surprised at the difference it makes. / © ANDROIDPIT
More files ripe for deletion can be found in the 'Miscellaneous files' section. Tick the boxes next to any types of file you'd like to remove - backups, files received via Bluetooth, playlist files, and so on - and then tap the bin button. You can keep an eye on how much space you have freed up by looking at the 'Available space' section.
You can also disable any apps that came pre-loaded on your phone but you don’t use. If you have rooted your Android, you can get rid of these apps easily. If not, you can simply go to the app properties and disable the app to prevent it from running and using up your phone’s resources.

3. Cut back widgets

All those widgets you have running on your home screen may be useful, but they also take up their fair share of resources.
speedup5
Widgets can be a waste of resources, so kill any you don't really need. / © ANDROIDPIT
If you have any widgets running that you don’t really need, consider disabling them. There's no harm in having some active, but you will notice an element of slow-down if you have too many running at the same time, so just be a little selective.

4. Animations and extras

Depending on the launcher you are using, you may find that there are various animations and special effects in place. These may look great, but they can also slow things down.
Check in your launcher's settings to see if there is a way to disable any of these unnecessary extras, and you could earn yourself a speed boost.

5. Close apps and free up RAM

Multi-tasking several apps makes it easy to switch between different tools, but there can also be an impact on performance. You can quickly close down any apps you are no longer using by calling up the running apps list - press and hold the home key and then swipe away any apps you want to exit.
speedup7
Terminating unused apps and freeing up RAM will help with the speed of your device. / © ANDROIDPIT
While you are at this screen, tap the pie chart button to the lower right of the screen and then move to the RAM section. Tap the Clear memory button and any background processes that are running unnecessarily will be closed down.

6. Restart your device

A quick and simple fix for a slow device is to simply restart it. This can clear out the cache, stop unnecessary tasks from running, and get things running smoothly again.
Just hold down the power button, select the Restart option, and then tap OK to confirm.
speedup8
Sometimes, something as simple as a restart is all that's needed for a speed boost. / © ANDROIDPIT

7. Dig deeper

Don't forget you can also keep tabs on the apps using lots of battery by going to Settings > Battery. You can also monitor RAM usage in Settings > Apps (or App Manager, depending on your brand of phone) and there's even more nerdy goodies in Process Stats in Developer Options – if you don't have this setting enabled, go to Settings > About Phone and tap Build Number seven times until a notification pops up.
We've shared some other great apps for monitoring system performance on Android, apps to give your Android a performance boost and tips to increase available RAM on Android. From what we can see Trepn Profiler deserves a rightful place amongst these other A-listers.
Do you have any tips and techniques you use to speed up your phone? Do you have any apps you use optimize the process?

Google Calendar for Android tips and tricks

Written by  
Google Calendar was first introduced almost ten years ago, and it's since grown to become one of the central pillars of the company's services — it lets you follow your schedule across mobile devices and the web, and it ties in closely with other Google products like Maps and Gmail. Here are our Google Calendar for Android tips and tricks.
The Android app has recently been given a new look and a significant upgrade, so it's worth taking a look at some of the features new and old that are on offer. Whether you're an occasional Calendar user or someone who relies on it to get you through each day, you should find these tips helpful.

Put in event locations

It may seem a bit pointless to put locations alongside all of your Google Calendar events — after all, you know where the dentist is right? But it enables Google Now give you warning when you need to leave for each event, and also illustrates the event with an image from the place itself.
androidpit google calendar locations

Add events from Gmail

The latest version of the Google Calendar app for Android lets you automatically add events automatically detected in your Gmail inbox. To get it set up, choose Settings from the menu then choose Events from Gmail and toggle the switch. You can always edit any imported events if required.
androidpit google calendar gmail events

Turn off illustrations

By default the new Google Calendar app puts some whimsical illustrations behind the header of each month — you'll see summer scenes in the hot months and vice versa. If you don't like this behavior, head into the Settings, tap General and enable the Show more events option from the list.

Edit your quick responses

If you're running late for a particular appointment then you can respond to all the attendees through the event inside the calendar app. You're probably going to be pushed for time, so Google provides some pre-prepared lines for you — choose Quick responses under General in Settings to edit them.
androidpit google calendar quick responses

Hide sensitive content

If you're running the latest Google Calendar app on Android Lollipop you can hide potentially sensitive information from the lock screen (otherwise someone else might be able to see upcoming meetings). From Android Settings, choose Sound & notification, App notifications and pick Calendar.
androidpit google calendar notifications

Customize event notifications

Most of us have several different calendars inside the Google Calendar app — home, work, kids and so on — and it can help to be able to have different notification levels for each. From Settings, tap an individual calendar to change its color and how much advance warning you get for each event.

Change time zones as you travel

If you go into Google Calendar Settings, tap General and then enable the Use device's time zone button, the times on your calendar change as you travel — so if a meeting starts 4am your time, it will say 4am. Disable the option and scheduled events show up in the time zone they were set in.
