We strongly recommend that you use a secure app, like Gmail, to access your account. All apps made by Google meet these security standards. Using a less secure app, on the other hand, could leave your account vulnerable.

Some users that user Gmail to fetch or backup another Gmail account experienced Gmail blocking Gmail with error in POP3 server. I also tried and get the error:

[AUTH] Web login required:

The solution is just simple, that is by "Allow less secure apps: ON".

They said that some non-Google apps and devices use less secure sign-in technology, which could leave your account vulnerable. You can turn off access for these apps (which we recommend) or choose to use them despite the risks.

How to Recover Lenovo C460 Power-on and BIOS (Supervisor) Password

We got problem when our client in Papua have their computer locked by Power-on passwrod and BIOS (Supervisor) password on Lenovo All-in-one Desktop C460. The problem doubled when the user forgot both of the passwords.

Normally, if you forgot Power-on password, just press F1 when computer starts, and you can reset the password in BIOS security setting. In old computer, reset BIOS or Power-on password is very easy just pull the CMOS battery on the motherboard.

From what I just read on some web forum, the solution is by call Lenovo Support to have reset them with cost about US$ 55. Some users also have experience that Lenovo Support replaced their PC with new one, because it still in warranty period. Ok, they can afford support, but in Papua area, there is no Lenovo Support service, and need to send the PC to Jakarta.

Lenovo C460 CMOS data stored in MXIC 25L6406E located on the motherboard, and we can reset (flash) them using reset BIOS reset hardware.

Just download BIOS software for C460 from Lenovo Support and good luck!

Alexa Pro Certified Increase My Website Rank

In my personal view, Alexa is a standout amongst the most famous web ranking system in this decade. In spite of the way that the Alexa positioning does not reflect web traffic precisely, it is still imperative for website admins to enhance the rank. I have web that get more than 20,000 visits a day, and only got rank more than 200,000. That's maybe because Alexa rank the website by gather data from users who access the web and have Alexa Toolbar in their browser. My web visitors mostly use mobile phone.

Last month (October 2015), I tried to use their pro service (Basic Plan) to get my website certified. It need 3 days to my website certified in the Alexa dashboard, and took almost 1 month to show to public that my web is certified. In their certified metric, my web increased it rank significanly from 210,531 to 27,639.


So, my conclusion from my personal experience is: Alexa Pro can increase rank for website with more traffic but have less visitors-with-Alexa-Toolbar.
