Cloud providers may have the ability to archive data to restore it on your behalf, which could also allow a hacker to view your private data. "Ephemeral messaging platforms like Snapchat are also safer choices for sending personal photos," Scruff’s Silverberg says.
By ephemeral, he means that the photos will disappear after a set number of seconds. Strip photos of any identifying code or information. Advance planning isn't always sexy, but it can make a huge difference in keeping your private photos safe.
To pass our test, the drawings have to be sex-positive. There are people who will be very deeply offended — people who are offended by certain sexualities — but we’re not worried about those people. Even if it’s not my thing, necessarily, I wanted the Flirtmoji to be sexy because it’s someone else's thing and it’s sexy to them.
Anyone has to be able to look at them and not feel offended. But some people will probably find these offensive anyway. When you started the project, did you also look up other adult emoji or stickers to see if there was anyone else trying to do what you’re doing? We did a lot of research and tried to always stay connected, because we felt that what we were working on was so obvious and important that there’s no way that we’re the only ones doing this. People have put together bad collections, thoughtless collections, offensive collections...
Make sure you have a strong passcode on your phone.
You can use a password manager like Dashlane, Last Pass, or Log Me Once.
But the game-changer came because one of the guys in the group was having really elaborate texting engagement back and forth with a long distance girlfriend.
One more cloud caution: "You’re not always the only one who has access to your cloud data," added TCDI's Vanderburg.
Fortunately, four designers in California have come up with a solution, and they're calling it "Flirtmoji" — sexy stickers designed to look like emoji that you can paste into messaging apps as needed.
The project launched on Tuesday, so How did Flirtmoji come to be? All four of us had experience with jokingly and poorly substituting the existing emojis into text conversations to try to communicate sex, and it never worked.
I showed some of the Flirtmoji to a friend, and she wasn’t surprised when I told her that you’re a woman. And that’s so beautiful, coming from another woman, that she saw that. Right, so I noticed that the free set of Flirtmoji don’t have hair, and I was wondering about that decision. I’m really glad you’re bringing that up because I feel like I’m being held accountable for that.
She said that men don’t tend to draw breasts like that. Hair has actually been really contentious and funny and also a major design issue, all while being a major conceptual necessity to all of us. I think it’s really important, and actually making it come across has been incredibly difficult.
