Clubhouse Confirmed False Data Breach

Clubhouse, the audio-based chat application, has rejected the allegations of a data breach that started spreading on the internet last week. The explanation came after a cybersecurity expert claimed that around 3.8 billion users’ telephone numbers are available to be purchased on the Dark web. In a tweet, data security expert Jiten Jain had likewise attached screenshots from the hackers who stole the database incorporating clients’ cellphone, fixed, private, and professional phone numbers. The screen capture further notes that “Clubhouse is connected real-time to all their users’ phonebooks meaning each time you add a new phone number in your phonebook, the number is automatically added into the secret database of Clubhouse.” 

The hacker guaranteed that the information is estimated at $3 billion, which also includes the “most influential” people on the globe. The claims came days after Clubhouse dropped its welcome just status and opened the stage to all clients. This incident happened only after the Clubhouse had announced that it is now out of beta and open to everyone which means no need for an invite link to join the clubhouse. The company said that it has removed its waitlist system so that anyone can join the platform in a hassle-free manner.

Swiss-based infosec researcher also tweeted about this on July 24th. According to the screenshot, the list of phone numbers includes members’ phone numbers along with the other phone numbers that were synced with their contact list. It claims that the social audio service collects phone numbers from contact lists, which are synced to the company’s servers.

Security researcher Rajshekhar Rajaharia, who has found such leaks in the past, noted that personally identifiable information of users was not available in the data being sold. The Telegram group where the data appeared was the same one that sold a fake WhatsApp database of 470 million users in the past, Rajaharia said. “Now they changed the name of the group from WhatsApp Database Leak to Clubhouse Database Leak,” he noted. The seller in question had a “bad past”, he said.

Strengthen Clubhouse Data Security

In February this year, security experts at Stanford University in the US had warned that the app may be leaking users` audio data to the Chinese government. The Stanford Internet Observatory (SIO) had claimed that Agora, a Shanghai-based provider of real-time engagement software, supplies back-end infrastructure to the Clubhouse app.

In a statement to news agency IANS, Clubhouse denied these claims and said, “there are a series of bots generating billions of random phone numbers.” Speaking over the alleged “secret database of Clubhouse,” the company clarified saying, “if one of these random numbers happens to exist on our platform due to mathematical coincidence, Clubhouse’s API returns no user identifiable information.”

So as of now, clubhouse users do no need to worry about their data security; however, it is very important to follow recommended cybersecurity practices. While you can check whether your data is compromised via sites like Have I Been Pwned, it is crucial to keep strong passwords. Users must also keep updating passwords and add two-factor authentication wherever is possible.

Soundmojis on Messenger

Social messaging applications have been adding new features to work with better communication among individuals who are telecommuting or are under COVID-19 lockdown. These platforms have expanded the count of members in video calls, made screen sharing simpler, and have added interactive devices for visiting. 

Facebook Messengers is currently making things one stride further with the presentation of Sound Emojis. As the name proposes, Soundmojis are emoticons that will have audio cues appended to them to improve the nature of the connection between individuals on the web.

On this World Emoji Day, Messenger has today announced the launch of its new ‘Soundmojis’, which are emojis that play a short audio clip, providing another interactive element for your message threads. Facebook has called Soundmojis “emojis that could talk”. As you can see here, Soundmojis, when added to a message, also plays an audio snippet, which the recipient will hear when they get the message.

As Facebook explains:

“[Soundmojis are] a next-level emoji that lets you send short sound clips in a Messenger chat, ranging from clapping, crickets, drumroll, and evil laughter, to audio clips from your favorite artists like Rebecca Black and your favorite TV shows and movies like Universal Pictures’ F9, NBC and Universal Television’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Netflix and Shondaland’s Bridgerton. “Ah, the drama of it all.”

Facebook says that everyday messenger users send more than 2.4 billion messages with emoticons on Facebook Messenger consistently, so inclining toward that utilization bodes well, and with more individuals currently more open to sound components than they have been previously (88% of TikTok clients, for instance, say that sound is fundamental for the TikTok experience), it very well may be the ideal chance to take emoticons to a higher level, while the consideration of special connection cuts likewise focuses to another chance for Facebook to transform it into a promoting opportunity, which could have some strong specialty use cases.

How To Enable Soundmoji Option

If you’re changing your mobile from an Android device to an iPhone or vice versa, there are several things that you need to keep in mind. The first thing is you have to transfer your contacts, photos, and other files from your existing device to the new device. WhatsApp is the 3rd most used social media application in 2021 and it’s one of our most frequently used applications on everyone’s mobile. When changing devices, it’s also important to make sure to transfer your WhatsApp data from android to iPhone or iOS to Android device. WhatsApp officially does not provide any method to easily transfer data from one phone to another unless both the devices use the platform. The main reason WhatsApp is not capable of migrating the chat data between the operating systems is because of how the backup works in iOS and Android.

WhatsApp in Android uses Google Drive to back up its data whereas, in iOS, it uses iCloud to back up the data. This makes it impossible to sync WhatsApp data across Android and iOS. Telegram on the other hand backs up the data by itself which makes it easy for multi-device login and syncing across the operating systems.

Twitter is fastly improving its feature and moving with the next phase of its creator monetization options. Twitter is opening applications for a limited test of its Super Follows and Ticketed Spaces features which are initially US-based Twitter users can apply separately for each program through Twitter’s mobile app soon it will be available to all other countries. Now, Twitter is rapidly adding new features and acquiring companies like Revue (a newsletter platform), Ueno (a creative agency), and Breaker (a social podcasting platform). 

As per Twitter:

“At Twitter, we want to help people make money, and give them tools they can use to be rewarded for their work and feel supported by their audience. We’re looking for a small group of people to be the first to try Ticketed Spaces and Super Follows with their audiences and share feedback. Help us test and improve these experiences before they launch more broadly in the coming months.”

Ticketed Spaces and Super Follows

Earlier this year in February during an Analyst Day event, Twitter announced they will select a “small group” of users to test its new monetization features. The Super Follows feature lets users charge $2.99, $4.99, or $9.99 per month for access to exclusive content. Ticketed Spaces lets them charge between $1 and $999 for access to one of Twitter’s social audio chat rooms, and it offers extra features like setting a room size cap. Test group participants will initially keep 97 percent of the money they make with Ticketed Spaces or Super Follows, after the fee that iOS and Android charge for in-app purchases. Twitter will increase its cut from 3 percent to 20 percent if a user makes a total of $50,000 on both systems. 

Twitter's Super Follow and Ticketed Spaces

Twitter’s 20 percent commission is lower than that of some other subscription platforms like youtube, Spotify, and clubhouse. Amazon-owned video service Twitch takes a 50 percent cut from subscriptions, and YouTube charges 30 percent of membership fees. Clubhouse and Instagram have features that let listeners tip speakers or award badges in a live audio space, but the apps don’t yet allow for advance ticket sales. Another way for top creators to make money on these apps is through Creator Funds. So, Ticketed Spaces seem very promising though, since Spotify Greenroom, Clubhouse, and other competitors don’t offer similar options like Twitter. But Discord is testing ticketed audio events on its Stage Discovery portal, but they aren’t out to its users yet. 

How to Apply Supper Follows and Ticketed Spaces

Applications to use Super Follows and Ticketed Spaces are only available on mobile. Super Follows are restricted to iOS users, while Ticketed Spaces are available on both iOS and Android. Users can see if they’re eligible to apply by checking a new “Monetization” option in the mobile app sidebar.

  • After completing the password retrieval, you will receive an SMS notification with the results within 24 hours. If the request is approved, a new WeChat password will be sent via SMS which you can use to log in to WeChat again.

For account security, after unfreezing your account and log in to WeChat successfully, go to Me > Settings > Account Security > Manage Devices and delete any unsafe devices from the list of prior devices. For your account security, you may need to verify your identity when you log in again from the deleted device.
