DoctorLaptop’s Tips #72:
-You Can Now Delete Accidentally Sent Messages, Photos on Facebook Messenger. The new unsend feature allows users to delete a message within 10 minutes of sending it, for both individual and group chats. Facebook promised the unsend feature in Messenger after it was revealed last year that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had the exclusive option to “delete” messages that he sent on the messaging app.
Here’s How to Unsend Messages on Facebook Messenger
1. Long press on the message you want to remove.
2. You will get both a standard emoji response window on the top of that message, as well as three options at the bottom of the screen: Copy, Remove, and Forward.
3. Selecting the Remove option will then display two options: “Remove for Everyone” and “Remove for You.”
4. Tapping the “Remove for Everyone” option will remove the message from the chat so that nobody can see the message after that.
It should be noted that the unsend feature also works for removing photos and videos sent to a user.
Just like WhatsApp, Messenger will replace the removed chat bubble with a text message notifying everyone in the conversation that the message has been removed. But remember, you will have up to 10 minutes to remove the message after being sent.
The Remove for You option will function in the same way the previous Delete option works.

-Android SmartPhone Users Alert.  Android phones can get hacked just by looking at a PNG Image. Yes, just viewing an innocuous-looking image could hack your Android smartphone—thanks to three newly-discovered critical vulnerabilities that affect millions of devices running recent versions of Google’s mobile operating system, ranging from Android 7.0 Nougat to its current Android 9.0 Pie. Patches have been released, however, since not every handset manufacturer rolls out security patches every month, it’s difficult to determine if your Android device will get these security patches anytime soon. For the next few months you need to be sure to only open pics from trusted sources or senders, whether on websites or in emails.
