Would you like to Download Fortnite and play it on your Android smartphone? That is not as simple as tapping the download button in the Play Store. We explain how it works.

Download Fortnite and play on Android

Popular game Fortnite is not available in the Play Store. Maker Epic Games avoids Googles store to earn more money from in-app purchases. This makes it harder for players to find the game, but we explain how it all works.

Sign up for the beta
First of all, you should know that the game is still in beta. That means not only that Fortnite on Android is not yet running smoothly, but also that you need an invitation to play the game.

To register for the beta, go to this website and click on the ‘sign up for email invite’ button. The beta is currently working on the following devices:

  • Samsung Galaxy: S7 (Edge), S8 (Plus), S9 (Plus), Note 8, Note 9, Tab S3, Tab S4
  • Google: Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL
  • Asus: ROG Phone, Zenfone 4 Pro, 5Z, V
  • Essential: PH-1
  • Huawei: Honor 10, Honor Play, Mate 10 (Pro), Mate RS, Nova 3, P20 (Pro), V10
  • LG: G5, G6, G7 ThinQ, V20, V30, V30 +
  • Nokia: 8
  • OnePlus: 5, 5T, 6
  • Razer: Phone
  • Xiaomi: Blackshark, Mi 5, 5S, 5S Plus, 6 (Plus), Mi 8 (Explorer), Mi 8SE, Mi Mix, Mi Mix 2, Mi Mix 2S, Mi Note 2
  • ZTE: Axon 7 (s), Axon M, Nubia Z17 (s), Nubia Z11

Download the launcher

To install Fortnite, you must first download the launcher. Once you have access to the game, you will receive a link to the launcher from Epic Games in an e-mail. This launcher installs the game.

However, you do not have to wait for the e-mail. You can also go to this website on your Android device, after which you tap ‘Get started’ and then ‘download’. Open the downloaded APK file, then tap ‘Install’.

You must give the launcher access to your storage to install the game. You also need to give access to installing unknown apps. If you get a notification, tap on ‘Settings’ and turn on the switch at ‘Allow this source’. Then tap the back button and click on ‘install’ again.

Downloading the game

Then the game starts to download. That may take some time because Fortnite is 1.88 GB large. So make sure you only download the app when you are connected to Wi-Fi.

After installing the game, you can only play Fortnite if you have been given access by Epic Games. That means you have to wait for the e-mail with the official invitation.

Fortnite and the Play Store
Because of this action from Epic Games, Google is starting to take action against fake games in the Play Store.

Change the name of your iOS device

Changing the iPad, iPod touch or iPhone name is so easy. By following the four steps below, you can set a new device name yourself that meets your requirements. That’s nice since the name is not only shown in iTunes but also if you use AirDrop or turn on a personal hotspot.

  1. Go to ‘Settings> General’;
  2. Tap ‘Info’ and then ‘Name’;
  3. You can now enter a new device name in the text box. Tap the cross to clear the box;
  4. Press ‘Done’ if you are satisfied with the new name.

As you can see, adjusting your iPhone name is something you can do in just a few minutes. You can do this as often as you want, which can be useful if you give your iOS device as a gift to a friend or family member. In that case, we also recommend restoring to factory settings, so that there is no private data left on the device.

Phishing emails target your data and identity and can look extremely realistic. How do you ensure that you don’t fall in to te the trap? accountWiki.net gives you a number of tips.

Recognize phishing e-mails

When writing about security on Android smartphones, we should not forget phishing e-mails. These almost authentic emails seem to tempt you to click on a link or download an attachment, with all its consequences.

On smartphones, these e-mails are dangerous in unique ways. For example, you can not hover over a link with your mouse just like behind your computer to see what lies behind it. Smartphones can also be taken over with one wrong link. That is why we have put together a series of tips for you to recognize a phishing e-mail.

1. Check the e-mail address

A wrong e-mail address is one of the most important ways to recognize a phishing e-mail. Since the name can easily be changed at the address, you have to focus on the e-mail address itself. Sometimes this address is clearly not true, but other times it is less visible.

For example, an e-mail from an address ending in @facebooksupport.com looks real, but Facebook sends its e-mails via @support.facebook.com. An e-mail from @ussbank.com seems to come from the bank, but as you can see there are two “s” in the name. Does the e-mail address consist of a series of strange characters? Then it is immediately clear that you are dealing with phishing here.

2. Check language usage and spelling

The second hint that you are dealing with a phishing e-mail is the language usage and spelling. Official e-mails are usually strictly checked by several people before they are sent. Although phishing e-mails can also perfectly fit in terms of language, something is often wrong. For example, phrases are bad, there are spelling mistakes or the salutation is the first part of your e-mail address.

If there are no ways to get in touch with the company that sends the e-mail, then chances are that you are dealing with a phishing e-mail.

3. Spot urgency

Many phishing e-mails have a remarkably urgent tone. You are warned that you have to act quickly, otherwise, something will go wrong or you will miss something. Think of the bank that warns that your account is being closed, a message that a collection agency will be sent to you if you do not fill in your details quickly, or a supermarket that states that you have won a prize that you can only collect today. With this urgency, the creators of the e-mails hope that you can take action quickly through panic.

4. Beware of links

Most phishing e-mails hope you click on a link. Such a link can have several dangerous consequences. Many of these links send you to a website that is very similar to the official website of the company being imitated. You then have to enter your personal details, such as a credit card number, bank details or address. This data can be used to steal your money or even your identity.

Open another link and the person behind this phishing e-mail can hack your device with all its consequences. On your PC it is easy to see what is behind a link, by hovering over it with your mouse and looking at the address at the bottom of the browser. That does not work on your smartphone. So your option is to copy the link by keeping your finger on it (so do not tap, but press!) And then tap on ‘Copu Link URL’. Then you will see the URL appear briefly at the bottom of the screen. Do you want to look better? Then paste the URL into a text file.

5. Beware of attachments

In addition, you must be careful with the downloading and opening of attachments. If you do not trust the e-mail, we recommend never downloading the attachment. If you download a file on your smartphone, there are many ways in which it can go wrong and your data or even your identity can be stolen.

6. Use Gmail

One advantage of using Gmail is that Google has smart spam filters that send a whole bunch of phishing e-mails directly to your spam folder. Sometimes, however, something can slip between them. So the most important thing is to use your common sense. If there is something you do not trust for any reason, then you should contact the authority where the e-mail seems to come from to ask if the message is correct.

The Instagram mobile website has received a needed update. This is especially true for iPad users.

Instagram iPad now lets you upload photos

Instagram always had a mobile version of the app, for example, if you want to log in to another account on another phone. For this, you don’t have to download the Instagram app first but just open the browser.

Today, the possibilities of this web version are expanded with the ability to upload photos directly to Instagram. Initially, it was only possible to view your profile and timeline without posting anything on your profile. If you open your account today in Safari or another browser, you can upload a photo by tapping the photo icon. After that, a similar window opens as in Instagram’s iOS app.

Upload without Instagram app

The social network told Techcrunch that the new feature is primarily intended for people living in an area with poor internet coverage. For example, they can share their photos without first downloading and installing an app. In countries where the Internet connection is generally good and stable, it is especially apparent for iPad users.

Although a full-featured Instagram iPad app might be even more beautiful, the improved web version is a welcome step. In the past, there were a lot of unofficial Instagram apps developed for the iPad, but the company stalled when extensions for these external apps were stopped in 2016.

ICloud is inextricably connected to Apple devices. Want to know what iCloud is and how signing in works? then read this tip.

What is iCloud?

Everyone with an iPhone or Mac has ever encountered iCloud. It may seem a vague service, but it’s really simple. iCloud is the place where all your files are collected. The cloud service stores photos, videos, contacts, apps, and other data and syncs them to all your connected devices. For example, you can save a photo to your iPhone and watch it on the Mac without any hassle. Adjustments are also immediately applied to other devices.

iCloud consists of several components. For example, there is the iCloud photo library where all photos and videos are stored. In addition, there is iCloud Drive, where all your files come together, such as documents. Some folders on the Mac are automatically linked to iCloud Drive, such as the contents of your desktop and the Documents folder. The iCloud Drive app on iOS lets you view the files on iOS devices. Furthermore, “Share with Family” is a part of iCloud. This allows you to share each other’s purchases, photos, calendars, and subscriptions with up to six family members.

iCloud login

To log in to iCloud, you need an Apple ID. Chances are you already created one because Apple ID is your user profile that allows you to downloads apps and use iTunes. If you don’t have an Apple ID, please create one on Apple’s website.

iCloud login

iCloud login

iCloud login then goes very simple. On an iOS device, proceed as follows:

  1. Open ‘Settings’ and tap at the top of your name;
  2. Choose iCloud and enter your email address and password (your Apple ID);
  3. Choose ‘Login’.

On Mac, do the following:

  1. Go to “System Preferences” (via the top left);
  2. Click on iCloud;
  3. Login with your details.

Using iCloud

After logging in, you can use iCloud. The iOS and Mac settings let you specify what you want to sync with iCloud. These can be photos but also cards in your Wallet or tabs on Safari. Via iCloud.com you can also sign into your files on non-Apple devices. You can just view, customize and use it. Of course, everything is synchronized so that you are up to date on your own devices later on.

iCloud offers each user free 5GB of storage space. If you need more, you have to pay for it monthly. These are the prices per month:

  • 50GB – $0.99
  • 200GB – $2.99
  • 1TB – $9.99
  • 2TB – $19.99

The exam is part of the new Hermes-translation program, where anyone can log on to. Most of this consists of tricky multiple-choice questions, which presented different interpretations of the same sentence. Another part of the test is about the art of subtitling. Things like the timing of the senses and set line breaks are discussed.

The results are then evaluated by a Netflix employee. Metro news reports that, for example, the translation from English to Dutch returns $11.50 per minute, where you must provide at least ten minutes of material. Different rates will also be applied for different languages.

If you still have an original Xbox system then you should definitely follow this guide. I will show you how to enjoy this old console even more by adding more features to it. This guide is intended for beginners, experienced Xbox users probably already know all these steps. With this guide, you will learn how to soft mod your Xbox, upgrade your hard drive, play games from your hard drive, play retro games like NES, GENESIS, and Playstation on the Xbox. But we will also show you how to protect your Xbox from the clock capacitor.

About the Classic Xbox

The Xbox is Microsoft’s console. It was released on November 15, 2001, in North America and on February 22, 2002, in Japan and on March 14, 2002, in the European market.

The Xbox name derives from “DirectX Box” (derived from Microsoft’s DirectX API), one of the code names during the development of the console, which the developers in internal e-mails soon shortened to Xbox. After a fight with the marketing department, this name won finally from a long list of acronyms. There exactly 1040 games released for the game console, some are exclusive to Europe, US, or Japan. You can find the complete list on Wikipedia.

Soft Mod your Classic Xbox

Softmodding your Xbox has a lot of benefits. It allows you to backup your games, install XBMC, play emulators, and much more. It’s fairly easy to mod your Xbox console, but you need the following items to do this:

  • An original copy of Splinter Cell (any version), MechAssault (black label or Platinum Hits with “MS02301L” on non-label side), or 007: Agent Under Fire (black label or Platinum Hits with “1448517” on disc)

For Japanese region consoles, you must use the Asian version of one of these games, the Japanese version will not work! Asian Platinum Hits MechAssault

You also need a controller to Female-USB adapter like this one.
A USB drive 2GB or smaller. You can also use your Android phone with the app DriveDroid.

Every Xbox has a built-in hard drive of 10GB. Large enough for game saves but way too less for doing cool things, like playing games from the hard drive. There are two limitations when upgrading a hard drive: you can’t use a drive large than 2TB (well you can sometimes, but really, you shouldn’t) and you must use an IDE drive (you can also use a SATA drive by using a SATA to IDE adapter).

Downloading and installing XBMC

XBMC Xbox

XBMC on Xbox


As you may know, Kodi, previously known as XBMC (Xbox Media Center) started on the original Xbox. But since the Xbox is outdated, the software isn’t being developed for the console anymore. Good news is that there are still developers who port it to the original Xbox. The latest version of XBMC for Xbox is XBMC4Xbox 3.5.3. Download it from here.
Once you have downloaded the file, you will need to copy it to the hard drive of your Xbox. You have two choices here. You can use it as an app within UnleashX or EvolutionX, or use it as the default dashboard when your Xbox boots up. If you prefer option one, then copy the entire content of the folder to E:/dash. Just make sure that you backup everything in case something goes wrong. If you prefer option 2, then copy the app to E:/apps.

Play Games for the Hard Drive

So by now, you should have a soft modded Xbox with hopefully a larger hard drive. Having a large drive allows you to backup your games and play them from the Xbox. This has the benefit that your games will load faster, your Xbox will be quieter, and you won’t risk damaging your original disks. To make a backup of an original game, you need to use the app DVD2XBOX. Download DVD2XBOX here
Extract the app to the E:/apps folder and run it from your dashboard. Choose “Copy CD/DVD to Hard disk” to proceed. It will show you the location where it will backup the game. If this is the right location, press the Start button to start ripping the game.

Download and Play Games

We will of course never promote piracy but finding games for the original Xbox is getting more difficult every day. Of course, you can still find them on sites like eBay or Craigslist but not everything is there. So if you wish to download games for your Xbox, there are some sites who offer Xbox ISO’s. The most popular being TheISOZone. There are more sites that offer ISO’s so doing a simple Google search will get your there.

Once you have downloaded a game, you will notice that it’s in an ISO format and you can’t use programs like Winrar or WinISO to extract the files. You will need to use a program called C-Xbox tool for this task. Download it from here and use the option “Extract” to extract your games. After that, you an FTP program like FlashFXP to transfer your games to your Xbox. You can also use this tool to create ISO’s of your original Xbox games that you have copied using DVD2XBOX.

Emulators on your XBOX

This console is also a very great for playing retro games. There are emulators for NES, SNES, N64, SEGA GENESIS, and much more. You can download individual emulators or you can use a Xbox Arcade front like CoinOPS 8 or Vision 5. These include everything you need to play thousands of arcade games on your Xbox.

CoinOPS 8

Vision 5

You can download and transfer these packs like regular Xbox games via FTP. Please note that these packs include thousands of ROMs so they’re huge.

Apple ID two-step verification is a convenient way to secure your Apple ID. In this article, you read exactly how to activate this strong online security.

Apple ID set up two-step verification, This is how it works

With two-step verification, you make sure you’re the only one who will be accessing your Apple ID. Even if someone knows your password, it can not hack into your account. This is because you need besides your password an additional (second) step to log in. No luxury to use, but you have to activate it yourself.

To activate this protection is subject to certain conditions. You need at least iOS 9 or OS X El Capitan and must already have an Apple ID. If you meet these requirements, you can add additional security measure.

Enable Apple ID two-step verification:

  1. Go to My Apple ID via this link;
  2. Click “Manage your Apple ID and sign in;
  3. Select “Password and Security”;

In “Two Step Verification you select the Getting Started.

This is how you log in using two-step verification

From now on, the registered device acts as a way to receive the verification code. Every time you log into a new Apple device that digit is displayed on the device and can only continue if it is entered. When setting up two-step verification, you also get sent a fourteen digit recovery key. You should keep this secure because you’ll need it if you lose your iPhone for example and you can not receive the four-digit code.

Two-step verification affects everything your Apple ID is used for, and that’s quite something.
