Does Digital Wellbeing affect battery life when the phone is not used?

I know the point of this app is to reduce usage of the phone (specific apps), which results in longer battery life. And maybe reduces battery usage a little by making the screen black and white, when the phone is used.

But does it do anything when the Wind Down mode is turned on, but the phone is not used and screen is off?

Recording digital audio with Android

I am unable to record digital audio (e.g. from a computer or another phone) with my Android device. I have plugged in a TRRS audio and mic splitter and plugged that into my phone, and used a male-to-male cable to connect my source device to the mic input. It can be seen that the built-in mic is not recording, but all it records is static, no matter the gain level. How can I get this to work?

What is the right way to share the digital assets to the will executor?

These days I brainstormed about how does one give their passwords/pin codes/etc to their will executor so that the executor can do what the person wanted after their death?

For instance, how would a person give them access to information like:

  • my PayPal accounts (personal and business)
  • Bitcoin Wallet
  • maybe computer passwords
  • phone PIN codes
  • etc.

I am pretty sure writing them on a piece of paper is not the best idea, unless they are not somehow encrypted and can be decrypted by the executor.

What would be the best way to verify the death of the person online, so that the executor will not get access to that information while the person is still alive (well, yes, the executor should be trusted, but still…)?

Is there a “classical” way to handle these credentials and internet data?

What’s the point of a digital certificate for which no private key exists?

I am only using digital certificates to sign documents, and my understanding is that the correct flow is the following:

  1. create a private key (e.g. using openssl)
  2. create CSR using the previously created private key
  3. use the CSR to request a digital certificate
  4. download digital certificate
  5. create digital identity (pfx file) using the digital certificate (4.) and the private key (1.).
  6. Use that pfx file to sign pdf, word files, mail, or any other file

The institution that I work for provides the employees different types of digital certificates (from digicert), for multiple purposes, one of which is digital signatures, which is my intended use. On the digicert webpage on which I can generate my own Premium digicert certificate, I only have one field to fill in, which is optional, the CSR field. Some other fields are prefilled, like my name, and the validity (1 year). Not knowing exactly what I’m doing, I first clicked on generate without creating a CSR first. Out of that I got 3 files, the client certificate, and 2 other certificates. They were useless in creating a pfx that can be used to sign documents without a corresponding private key. After a bit of research I learned that I am supposed to follow the steps above, but now I wonder why is the CSR optional. In what circumstances a client certificate without a private key can be used?

The output that I get from digicert when requesting a premium digital certificate seems to be the same, regardless of whether I fill in a CSR or not (3 crt files, one of which is on my name, the other 2 being the 2 companies that trust the client certificate). The only difference is that without a private key, I cannot create a pfx using openssl.

I even tried to create a pfx using the same private key for both sets of premium certificates (created with CSR and without CSR). For the set created with CSR it all worked out ok, and for the set created without filling in a CSR, openssl complained that there is no digital certificate matching the private key.

If my understanding is correct, without a CSR there can’t be a link to a private key. Without a public-private key pair, what can one do with a digital certificate?

Digital marketing or regular marketing masters degree?

Hi there, I´m new on here and a bit unsure weather this is the best place to post this, but I need some advice.

I recently graduated with a bachelor in economics and administration with a major in marketing, but am having a hard time finding a job. Which is why I am now looking into masters degrees to further increase my knowledge and to hopefully get a job eventually within the field.

I am mostly looking into universities and colleges in Great Britain, Ireland and Germany, but I am not…
