When we buy a new phone, it works smooth as silk. Over a period of time, with addition of apps, some of which hog the live memory, the phone slows down, and the battery drains faster than before. With Greenify, your device can run almost as smoothly and lastingly as it did the first day you had it!
Greenify helps you identify and put the misbehaving apps into hibernation when you are not actively using them, to stop them from lagging your device or leeching the battery, in a unique way! They can do nothing without explicit launch by you or other apps, while still preserving full functionality when running in foreground.
NEVER greenify alarm clock apps, instant messaging apps unless you don’t rely on them. Please do verify the impact of greenified apps on which you heavily rely.

Using Signal, you can communicate instantly while avoiding SMS fees, create groups so that you can chat in real time with all your friends at once, and share media or attachments all with complete privacy. The server never has access to any of your communication and never stores any of your data. An ideal, private, secure replacement for WhatsApp
Signal uses an advanced end to end encryption protocol that provides privacy for every message every time. There are no separate logins, usernames, passwords, or PINs to manage or lose.
It allows you to create encrypted groups so you can have private conversations with all your friends at once. Not only are the messages encrypted, but the Signal server never has access to any group metadata such as the membership list, group title, or group icon. And you can make crystal-clear phone calls to people who live across town, or across the ocean, with no long-distance charges.

During elections, there is a lack of a fast information
channel to transmit and track complaints of violation of
Model Code of Conduct to the Election Commission. Delays in reporting
such violations may provide an easy escape route for candidates who have
violated the code. Further, lack of any documented, untampered, evidence in the
form of pictures or videos was a major hurdle in establishing the veracity of a
complaint, later. The Commission’s experience has also shown a significant
percentage of reporting was false or inaccurate, which led to wastage of
precious time of Field Units.
The new cVIGIL app launched by Election Commission of India
is expected to fill in all these gaps and create a fast-track complaint
reception and redressal system. cVIGIL provides time stamped evidentiary proof
of model code of conduct / Expenditure Violation, having live photo/video with
auto location data. This unique combination of timestamping, live photo with
auto location can be fairly relied upon by election machinery to navigate to
the right spot and take prompt action. The GIS-based dashboard provides strong
decision tool to drop and dispose of frivolous and unrelated cases even before
they are acted upon, thereby reducing the workload of election machinery on
IF you find any violations – use cVIGIL today!
