A safety warning for Instagram users

Published

on

Instagram has released a new feature that allows the app to track users “precise location” without asking permission to do so

We know tech giants are constantly updating features to remain relevant to their users, however sometimes it might be putting them in danger.

Most people don’t know the new Instagram update has occurred and they could be sharing private and potentially dangerous information to strangers.

What used to be shared as a “general location”, is now sharing the exact location, like a persons home.

This has many users, particularly women, concerned about their safety.

It potentially gives criminals and stalkers information that could be used in a malicious way.

So how do you turn it off?

If you use an iOS device, you can go to Settings, scroll down to Instagram, then tap Location, and you can off the “Precise Location” button.

A police officer describing herself “Officer Naughty” has quit the force, after setting up her own porn site.

Constable Sam Helena was suspended after an Only Fans page went viral.

She calls herself a “good girl gone bad” and has previously faced disciplinary action for sharing raunchy videos of herself.

One clip shows the officer in a navy blue corset with a police badge. But the force believes her behaviour had brought the organisation into disrepute.

A Met Police spokeswoman says it is investigating the behaviour.

It’s understood Commissioner Mark Rowley has vowed to clamp down on misconduct and misogyny in the force.

Box Office disaster for Disney

Published

The results from the all-important Thanksgiving Box Office sales are in.

This year’s Thanksgiving movies proved to be a feast and famine for Walt Disney.

While “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” added $64 million to its domestic tally during the five-day time frame, Disney’s latest animated feature “Strange World” failed to lure in moviegoers, generating just $18.6 million.

That is the worst three-day opening for a Disney animated feature since 2000′s “The Emperor’s New Groove.”

It comes as CEO Bob Iger returns to the helm of the company, promising to restructure Disney in a way that puts creativity at the forefront.

Thanksgiving week is an important time for studios at the box office, usually bringing in around $250 million in ticket sales each year.
