Mobile web development, also known as responsive web design, is an approach to web design aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing and interaction experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones). A site designed with RWD adapts the layout to the viewing environment by using fluid, proportion-based grids, flexible images, and CSS3 media queries.

Thanks Andrew.

1a. Facial spoofing attacks can easily launched via printed photos, video replays and 3D masks of a face. There is a detailed paper written on this. That is why it is critical to implement strong liveness detection measures for facial authentication that recognize when a facial image is not a live. To share a bit more, spoof detection can be classified as either “active”, requiring interaction with the subject, or “passive” analysis requiring no interaction.  

1b. Fingerprint spoofing attack can easily be fooled by fake fingerprints digitally composed of many common features found in human prints. Likewise another paper shares the details. What I think is concerning is the capture in the past has also been attempted on gummy fingers that is fake Fingers. Liveness test is still the added assurance check needed to have a robust check in the mobile device.

The challenge for a/m is not on the detection technology but how to more towards a more accurate match rate an d at the same time not in the expense of making the device bulky or more draining to the limited battery level.

2. Actually remote wipe is more of a mitigation as ultimately, if the data remain encrypted and the device has lock enabled, access is restricted and even data siphoned off the shutdown or locked device will not necessary have the plain data revealed. So with encryption and locked setting, the mitigation suffice as baseline.

Hope the above clarifies.

Ionic Framework
When it comes to building mobile apps, it is important to consider a framework that is easy to work upon and provides good benefits. The "Ionic framework" is one of the latest frameworks considered by Ionic App Development Companies when it comes to building mobile applications.

We can see that the frameworks like React Native and PhoneGap make the development process of the applications relatively less expensive and more accessible than the development would cost when written in the native language for the platform.

App Development

Apart from its culture, demographics, and beliefs, Indian infrastructure is also quite complex, especially because of the challenge of overpopulation that stares us right in the eye. Due to this, it has been quite difficult to anticipate the traffic behavior, directions, local businesses, and many other things, with accuracy. When Google Maps was launched in India, it certainly helped, but also showed us that we need a better solution. Something that is indigenous, so that it knows the country inside out. Hence, MapMyIndia.


A mobile apps development company that works in sync with ISRO’s Bhuvan satellite - MapMyIndia recently launched its navigation and positioning app, created exclusively for India, and is already giving tough competition to Google Maps. It provides accurate information even for daily commuters. In fact, it has taken it a step further by including many live features that are extremely helpful, especially when you are in a country like India where traffic situations and even addresses change every now and then. So let’s take a look at what features it brings together to create something that is messing with the Google ‘bear’.


IoT Tracking


A big leap ahead for India with this IoT solution, the app uses its own IoT devices to track and collect information from different points through sensors. Making the best use of IoT technology, the app has been instilled with the ability to create real-time alerts for users and commuters. In case of a traffic jams, IoT sensors take note of the situation and suggest short and alternative routes to mitigate the traffic.


Voice-guidance


Matching shoulders with Google, the app also provides a voice navigation facility with turn-by-turn navigation support, which is expected to decrease the rate of road accidents that happen due to the lack of hands-free GPS systems.


Floating button for Reporting Issues


Apart from the data collection via the IoT system, there is a manual way of reporting issues i.e via people. Road damaged? Broken transport? Traffic jam in your area? Just take a picture and upload it to the relevant section in the app. Good thing is that the app has covered almost all kinds of issues that occur, including map issues, traffic issues, connectivity issues, and areas with specific access.


Tailored for India


Compared to Google Maps, MapMyIndia focuses on much more detail and list small businesses, facilities, shopping centers, and even personal addresses. However, because the app is still quite new to the market in terms of reach, it is still under the data collection phase, during which you may not find many small addresses in the app. But that is only for now because the database is constantly growing.


Detailed Information


Another reason why the app has great usability in India is that it provides complete information about a particular thing that you look for on the map. Apart from the address and direction, you also get a contact number, email, website and opening hours. Also, with the help of worldview, not only you can get details about a place, you can also see what people think of this place, based on the number of likes it has garnered.


Analytics


Some people just want more information about everything, including trips, so just an odometer and tachometer is not enough for them. MapMyIndia comes with trip analytics that allows info savvy people to track more. You can track the time of trip completion, estimated time of arrival, remaining distance, remaining time of arrival, and much more; on-the-go.



MapMyIndia has created something that is perfectly tailored to the ever-changing maps of India. However, one of the things that the application clearly lacks is user experience. The touch buttons and screens reflect subliminal efforts on the designing side.

Great Article !!!!

But when it comes to Security i think Linux is the king, so i recommend this solutions.-
https://www.lastpass.com/es
LastPass supports also Linux and has better security, if you are too paranoic the second option.-
https://keepass.info/
May be your solution, but its harder to configure and maintain, in the past i only used Firefox master password, so maybe my advice is not so good.
Good Luck.

Hi Jorge and thank you for your comments about my article.

The problem with your recommendation about lastpass is that it's owned by LogMeIn - a company I will now be avoiding like the plague because of the way they treated both their paying and nonpaying customers recently in just dropping the Xmarks bookmarks manager like a hot potato.

To see what I'm talking about, see the thread still getting comments here:

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29092048/Alternatives-to-the-Xmarks-com-Bookmarks-Synchronization-Service.html

You're welcome (in fact encouraged) to contribute your thoughts to the above thread.

I didn't much like Lastpass as a solution before, but after what LogMeIn recently did after taking over Xmarks, I would no longer consider any solution that they have any control over -  and that's coming from someone who used their LogMeIn Rescue product at a cost of about $1,000 a year for nearly 10 years.

Their killing of a solution that so many were enjoying (and subscribing to use Pro features for) without any decent explanation is bound to hurt them in the long run imo and I'll discourage anyone who asks about any LogMeIn solution in the future for that reason.

Avoid using LastPass - who know's when it will just disappear, just like Xmarks did, when logmein decides they don't want to play anymore?!

Cheers...

Andrew
