Summary List Placement You can't "block" someone on Tinder, but unmatching from them works the same way. When you unmatch with someone on Tinder, you won't be able to see each other when you swipe, and your conversations will disappear. If you want to unmatch someone, unlike blocking on other platforms, there is no way to undo it. Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories.
Tinder revolutionized the way people date online. Instead of browsing profiles for hours and searching out potential dates, you can merely "swipe right" on the people you like, and "swipe left" on those you don't. Swiping right makes it easier than ever to meet and connect with people, but there are still some drawbacks to it. While most people you meet on Tinder are probably just like you — respectful and trying to find a genuine match — you can run into some people you'd rather not connect with. On Tinder, if you somehow come into contact with someone you no longer want to be connected to, you can't block them. But you can unmatch with them. If you're unmatching with this person because they were harassing or stalking you, or doing something else that might mean they pose a danger to other people, you should also report them to Tinder to take action. When you unmatch someone on Tinder, you are automatically removed from each others' matches list. Your conversations are also deleted, and they won't be able to interact with you on the app ever again. There is currently no way to undo this action, so make sure unmatching is what you want. If so, here's how to do it. How to block someone on Tinder by unmatching 1. Open the Tinder app. 2. Go to your conversations by tapping the speech bubble in the top right corner.
Tap on the conversation with the person you want to unmatch with.
In the top right corner of the screen, tap the shield icon.
In the pop-up menu labeled "Safety Toolkit," tap "Unmatch" disconnect your profiles and block the Tinder user from seeing your profile or contacting you.
Tap "yes, unmatch" in the second pop-up to confirm your action.

You can clear the Snapchat cache through the Settings menu underneath Account Actions. Snapchat typically notifies someone when you've screenshotted their messages or stories in the app, but Airplane Mode can prevent that from happening. Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories. As they say, everything you post on the internet is there forever. On Snapchat, an answer to that adage is built into the platform. The app's original promise was that anything you sent would disappear almost immediately after you sent it, lost to the internet aether. With the added option for snaps not to have a timer and for conversations not to disappear, there's less of an atmosphere of secrecy on the app. That includes when you take screenshots. When you get a screenshot of a message or snap, it's standard policy for Snapchat to notify the person whose material you've captured immediately through the social platform. While this helps protect user privacy, sometimes you may not want to notify a user of your screenshos. You might want to show someone who's not on the app something from a friend's story or even turn that perfect gif or meme response into your phone background. In these cases, there's a way to take screenshots in Snapchat without notifying the person you're screenshotting. It will involve Airplane mode and clearing your app cache. Once you do the latter, Snapchat won't remember that you took the screenshot. Therefore, it won't be able to update the other user's profile to reflect that you took one. Here's how to do it. How to take a screenshot on Snapchat without someone knowing 1. Before you open the snap, put your phone in Airplane Mode via Settings. 2. Open the snap and take your screenshot. 3. Before taking your phone out of Airplane Mode, tap your profile icon in the top left corner of the screen. 4. In the top right corner of your profile menu, tap the Settings icon. 5. Scroll to the bottom of the Settings menu. Under Account Actions, tap Clear Cache. 6. In the Clear Cache menu, tap Clear All. 7. A pop-up will appear asking you to confirm the action — tap Clear to confirm. 8. Turn Airplane Mode off. Related coverage from Tech Reference: Does Snapchat notify users when you take screenshots?

However, if you're not a big tech person, you may be a little confused as to what that is. It's actually very simple: Wi-Fi calling is when you conduct a phone call over a Wi-Fi connection rather than through your phone carrier's cellular network. Here's what you should know about Wi-Fi calling, including how to set it up on your phone. Wi-Fi calling, explained As stated, a Wi-Fi call is a call that's placed using a Wi-Fi internet connection instead of a cell connection. There are several advantages to Wi-Fi calling over standard calling. Wi-Fi calls use something called a High-Definition (HD) Voice service, which typically makes the call quality clearer. However, this depends on the speed of your internet connection. If you're in an area where cellular service is spotty, Wi-Fi calls can sometimes keep calls from getting disconnected. Additionally, on most major phone carriers, Wi-Fi calling services are free, as long as the calls are being made to U.S. numbers. You have access to Wi-Fi calling as long as you have a compatible cell phone. Don't worry — that's nearly all phones on the market today. So as long as you don't have a very old smartphone — as in, older than the iPhone 6 — you can use Wi-Fi calling. You should also note that to make Wi-Fi calls, you'll have to provide your address. This is so emergency services can reach you if you call 911. If you want to know how to turn that capability on, here's how. How to enable Wi-Fi calling The exact way to turn on Wi-Fi calls on your phone will depend on what sort of phone you have. But in general, here's how. On an iPhone: 1. Open your phone's Settings app. 2. Tap the "Cellular" option to open your cellular network menu. 3. Find the Wi-Fi calling option and tap it. 4. Toggle the Wi-Fi calling switch to the left, so it turns green. 5. A pop-up will appear, giving you more details about the sort of information that gets sent to your cell phone carrier when you enable Wi-Fi calling. Read to make sure you're okay with the terms, then tap "Enable." 6. Another pop-up will appear, asking you to confirm your address in order to comply with federal 911 regulations. The appearance of this pop-up may change slightly based on your cellular carrier. Confirm your address, then tap "Next." 7. Follow the on-screen instructions from your carrier to finish setting up Wi-Fi calling on your device. On an Android: 1. Open your phone's dialer — the screen where you type in phone numbers — and tap the three dots in the top right corner. 2. Select "Settings." 3. In the menu that appears, tap "Wi-Fi calling" and then tap the switch next to it so it flips to the right. 4. You'll be asked to confirm that you want to enable Wi-Fi calls, and then enter your address. Once you've done both, Wi-Fi calling will be enabled.

You can get Audible on your Google Home speaker by pairing it with your phone through Bluetooth or casting your Audible app from your Android phone. Make sure all your devices are on the same network when you are pairing your mobile device to your Google Home speaker. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Audible brings you the latest titles and popular podcasts, ensuring you have hands-free access to your favorite stories and storytellers while you work out, run errands, or put the kids to bed. While Audible lets you listen on your laptop or phone, you can also connect it with Google's smart speaker and home assistant. Because the Amazon-owned Audible doesn't have an app for Google Home, you'll need to either pair your Audible app with the speaker using Bluetooth, or, if you have an Android phone, you can cast your audiobooks through the Google Home app. Before you do either, make sure your Google Home speaker and smartphone are connected to the same network. You'll also want to make sure the "Microphone" permission on your Android phone is turned on in your Google Play app. You can do this by opening the app, opening the "Permissions" menu and toggling the "Microphone" option on. Here are two ways you can listen to Audible on your Google Home device.
