Popular unlocking patterns are often in the shape of a letter – and are easy to guess. A bad thing if someone loses their mobile phone and it ends up in the wrong hands.
In order to tailor plasmas for medical applications, it is necessary to know their effective components in detail. A team from the Collaborative Research Centre 1316 is providing new insights.
For data protection reasons, the messaging app Signal is becoming ever more important. Unlike WhatsApp, the Signal app asks you to create a PIN during setup. But why?
This is how a nanosecond plasma forms and spreads in water via tunnel effects.

Logging into an online shop without a password, using only the fingerprint? In this situation, it’s not surprising that users have the impression that their biometric data is transmitted to the website.
Alternative splicing can lead to the formation of numerous protein variants. For the first time, alternative splicing has now been systematically analysed for the family of glutamate receptors.
A research team has discovered a security gap in modern mobile phones that is very unlikely to have been created by accident. In fact, it should have been removed back in 2013.
Studies on tissue from patients and mini-brains made from stem cells shed light on the disease.
Rather than destroying or removing defective veins, it is possible to repair them by using a sheath. They are thus saved for later use as a bypass.
Almost all attempts to use the Ras protein as a point of attack for medications have so far failed. New knowledge concerning its structure is raising hopes of options in the development of medications.
Services like Google collect a lot of data about their users. Anyone can see the information that is stored about them. But that doesn’t scare users away. On the contrary.
