Android Pie has too many beneficial features. One of those features is known as Lockdown mode, which takes the Android device’s security to the next level.

Pie has got too many upgrades when compared to other upgrades of Android. Due to this, the Lockdown feature has failed to stand out in the new update. Let’s see what things make it a unique feature.

Pros of Android Pie Lockdown feature

If you are conscious about privacy, then this feature is not less than a lifesaver for users like you. Privacy problems are getting even worse day by day. Cyber criminals are sneaking into people’s phones and tablets to steal their data. They use your facial and voice recognition to steal private information. They can also get access to your fingerprints, and once they do it, then it’s game over.

But Lockdown feature turns off all these recognition programs and algorithms. It makes it impossible for someone to access your smartphone remotely. By using this feature, you can also make yourself safe from online banking risks. Here’s how to enable Lockdown on Android feature:

  1. Go to the Settings on your Android Pie enabled device.
  2. Navigate to the ‘Lock Screen’ feature.
  3. Choose the “Secure lock settings” options on your device.
  4. After that, tap the ‘Show Lockdown option’ toggle switch.
  5. Now you need to long-press the power key of your device until you see various options over the display.
  6. Select the Lockdown mode.

Now you have successfully activated the Lockdown feature on your device. From now on, if someone tries to sneak into your privacy, then it will block their access by a Pin or Password.

Keep in mind once the option activates you will have to provide Pin or Passcode to use your fingerprint sensor and doing that will automatically disable the feature.

To re-enable it long-press the Power key for a while and then select the lockdown feature again.

The Android Pie feature is the first Android OS, which can prevent apps from accessing your microphone, camera, and sensors on the background. Even if you have provided all permissions to your apps, the app developers can’t access your mic, camera and other things of your phone. This makes Android Pie one of the most secure Operating Systems of all time. If you have Android 8 Oreo installed on your Mobile, then you can easily upgrade to the Pie. To upgrade your smartphone to the Android Pie, go to settings and then navigate to the System updates.

Google PlayStore is one of the biggest, if not the biggest platforms for Android users to install an app or a game. Thousands of apps get added to PlayStore daily, and sometimes even PlayStore cannot keep up with it.

An app made by a student to an app created by a Multinational Corporation faces some issues here and there. Retrieving information from the server or DF-DFERH-01 issue is one of the most common problems faced by an Android user when trying to install an app from Google PlayStore.

Here are some ways for you to fix this problem.

6 Ways to Solve Retrieving Information from the Server Error in Google Play Store

  1. Restart the Android Device

It is one of those standard tricks in the book that everyone knows about. More than half of your basic technical faults can be fixed by simply restarting your device.

  • Turn off the Mobile Data and WiFi.
  • Press the power button for more than 3 seconds and tap restart.
  • Turn on the Mobile Data after the device boots up.
  • Now try installing the app.

Most of the time, this trick will work, but if not this time, then move on to the next step.

  • Open the Settings tab.
  • Select Date and Time.
  • Turn on Automatic Date and Time.

Follow the given steps:

  • Open the Settings tab and open Applications.
  • Search for Google play services.
  • Tap on Storage and then Clear Cache.
  • Repeat the same with Google PlayStore.

If this does not fix the issue, then move on to the next step.

  • Update Google Play Store

Apps are updated to keep them bug-free, and the same goes for Google. So update the Google Play Store, and it may fix the issue.

  • Open the Settings tab and go to About section.
  • Press Play Store version and wait for a couple of seconds.
  • A pop-up will tell you whether or not it is up to date or not.
  • If it is not updated, then a notification will tell you so. Tap OK and wait for it to download.

If this does not fix the issue, then move on to the next step.

  • Add another Google Account

Adding another account can fix the issue so just:

  • Open the Settings tab and go to Accounts.
  • Tap on Google accounts.
  • Select Remove Accounts and confirm it.
  • Restart the device and go to settings.
  • Repeat the process but this time tap on Add Account.
  • Add a new Google account.

If the issue remains, then try the next step.

  • Update the Android Device
  • If your Android is not up to date then:
  • Go to the Settings tab and tap System.

Recently Disney announced that its new streaming service will be hitting the market. The streaming services will be available from December 11 onwards in the US. It is a significant attempt by Disney, which may result in stirring up the streaming competition. Now the upcoming streaming service has announced to reboot four of the Fox movie franchises.

Fox revealed it back in 2017 that its movie and shows division might be up for sale. A number of companies showed interest in gaining the studio and its assets. The decision came down to Disney and Comcast in the end. It was Disney who got the deal done with Fox with Disney paying a whopping amount of 71 billion dollars.

It took Disney just over a year to gain control over the assets and services that it purchased. Even Marvel has got the rights over Fantastic Four and X-Men, but they would not be working on it until the early phase 4 of the MCU. Fox already decided to bring installments of movies like Kingsman and Avatar; however, several other franchises are left hanging as of now. It brings hope for some of them as Disney announced to reboot four of the Fox movie franchise.

Disney recently suffered third quarter of a loss so acquiring these franchises may prove to be in its fair. The four franchises that are going to be rebooted on the upcoming Disney plus are:

  1. Home Alone (1990)
  2. Night at the Museum (2006)
  3. Cheaper by the Dozen (2003)
  4. Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2010)

As for these movies, the Home Alone installments started in the 1990s with the movies earning over 700 million dollars worldwide. Only the second installment of the franchise hit the theater though as the other two went directly to home video.

Steve Martin leading Cheaper by the Dozen franchise starting in 2003, earned more than 300 million dollars worldwide.

Ben Stiller’s The Night at The Museum trilogy earned the most out of the group, racking up 1.3 billion dollars from 2006 to 2014.

The Diary of a Wimpy Kid trilogy did not do much high earning. It was approximately 70 million dollars each. The reboot of the series in 2017 was not received well by the fans and it only earned 40 million dollars worldwide.

Each one of the franchise has brought in different numbers for Fox studios, but Disney’s appeal to reboot them is easily understandable. All of the franchises chosen can easily be fit under the Disney banner. However different from the standard Disney reboots, these ones will directly go to streaming, much like Disney’s Lady and the Tramp movie.

Disney Plus is set to have a large number of viewers, but how much will these four franchises add to the numbers still remains to be seen. Disney will be eager to fix that quarter third loss they just endured.
