given, your company gets to know about the business and age groups of customers. You did get the information, don’t you?
Have you downloaded a new app? Then you will get a notification among the many. The message reads like – Did you approve of the request to let this app track your location? And if you disapprove, either the download will not happen, or there will be challenges to face many features. Imagine the time, you booked for a ride on Uber or Ola. Please do not forget the fact information regarding your location and other details may end up in the specific company’s database for further promotions.
The recent use of mobile apps has led to geofencing technology. Do you also have a restaurant and have tied up with few info based websites? Then, you can get to know of the new customer’s favorite recipe, before he comes and sits down at the table.

Well, this is an innovation which has been adapted in social media platforms. It is yet to gain recognition and acceptance among the public. In the present time, if you are working in an office, you show the ID card to the biometric door to gain entry. Right?
Now, do you use Facebook? How do you log in? Is it by Password or Facial recognition? If you are using your Image for gaining access, then the same technology will be used by offices of the future.

Yes, the mobile may be a wonderful device. But it is also necessary to follow the best practices. And if your home has children, it is a challenge to keep their hands off the mobile. There are times when you feel that the performance of the mobile has reduced. That is when you find many apps running in the background. You removed many of them via the rebooting method but find one app. Your various methods to remove the app failed.

If it is an iPhone, you can go to the concerned service center. But this is another brand mobile and the purchase period is more than three years. So, you cannot contact the concerned brand service center. You need to hire a freelancer mobile expert in the city. And because of lack of time, you find difficulty to go to the mobile shop. You want someone to come to your fixed location to do the job. That is, where home appliance companies come to your aid. They will have qualified handyman professionals, in their customer care team.
