How To Make WhatsApp Work Again On Blackberry 10 Device

Many Blackberry users across the world has started reporting that the Whatsapp application has stopped working on their devices, despite the fact that Whatsapp officially announced that its support for Blackberry devices (BB10), Nokia Java S40, and Nokia Symbian S60 has been extended until June 30, 2017. Blackberry 10 users now get a flash page announcing that WhatsApp no longer supports their phone. What a sad one there!

However, some other Blackberry 10 users also reported that they are being able to use Whatsapp on their device, while some others reported that after updating their WhatsApp from BlackBerry World, they were able to use Whatsapp again.

SEE ALSO: Glo Finally Discontinued Their Blackberry Internet Service

Thereby, according to the update from Blackberry World:
If WhatsApp has stopped working on your BlackBerry 10 smartphone, you might want to give that a try. Update the app and see if that resolves the issue. If an update does not resolve this situation, then perhaps WhatsApp has finally dropped support for BlackBerry 10. In which case, it is time for you to switch to a supported smartphones like Android OS, Windows phone, iOS, iPad, and even Apple iPhone.

Gionee M6 Mirror Full Specifications, Features and Price

Gionee has silently launched a new smartphone called Gionee M6 Mirror. Gionee M6 Mirror as it's been called is a successor to the previously launched Gionee M6 with less internal storage, less RAM, less processor, less battery capacity. Though it's a 4G enabled and has the same screen size with Gionee Marathon M6.

Looking at the name, Gionee M6 Mirror, we are guessing that the “mirror” tag comes from the dual arc design at the back with transparent plate. That rear plate gives a reflective effect similar to a mirror. Here’s the full specs sheet (we left out unconfirmed features):

MasterCard Launches Identity Check Mobile App For Secured Transactions

MasterCard has just announced a new payment technology application called Identity Check Mobile. This is to improve reliability, security and fast transactions online. This new payment technology application uses Biometrics features, which includes fingerprint and facial recognition, to verify the card holder's identity.

The first bank in America and Canada to offer Identity Check Mobile to its corporate customers from the first half of the year is
BMO Financial Group (BMO).

Recall that the rollout of Identity Check Mobile follows a launch of Mastercard and BMO earlier. Meanwhile, people are happy and eager to experience this new payment method. In fact, a research shows that 3 out of every 4 participants agree that biometrics is easier to use than passwords. Nine out of 10 participants anticipate using biometrics for online payment security in the future.

Steve Pedersen, vice president, head, North American Corporate Card Products at BMO, has this to say.
“The pilot tested the potential of delivering greater security and convenience using biometric technology. Our goals were to understand the attitudes and perceptions of our participants toward biometrics as an online payment security solution,”

He also added;
“After using Identity Check Mobile, our programme participants gave strong reviews on biometric security and ease of use, especially as compared with passwords. We are looking forward to bringing this same experience to our clients in 2017".

Some of the basic importance of Mastercard Identity Check Mobile is that it minimises the need for passwords while doing online transactions which tremendously speeds the digital checkout process as well as improving security.

A cardholder can verify his/her identity by using the fingerprint scanner or facial recognition technology on his/her smart phone with the Identity Check app. More like using your phone's built in security to secure your transactions.
