TLDR: Enpass Password Manager creates and safely stores all your login passwords and other vital information for only $24.99. There’s a good chance you remember your PIN number from memory. And if you log into certain accounts every day for work or at home, there’s a fair chance you can remember that as well. But what happens when you start changing passwords every three months? Or what about that website login that you don’t return to for six months?  Researchers say your brain is actually a few steps ahead of you — and if it’s not a vital password, there’s… This story continues at The Next Web

Get the latest on coronavirus. Sign up to the Daily Brief for news, explainers, how-tos, opinion and more.Donald Trump has claimed the US is “doing very well” in the fight against coronavirus “by comparison to most other countries”, and suggested the truth is being suppressed from the public by “fake news” media.You will never hear this on the Fake News concerning the China Virus, but by comparison to most other countries, who are suffering greatly, we are doing very well - and we have done things that few other countries could have done!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 21, 2020Of course the actual reason this hasn’t been reported is because it simply isn’t true.While many countries including the UK are making preparations for a possible second wave in the coming months, the US is still in the grip of a first with the situation deteriorating by the day in a number of states.If California were a country, it would rank fifth in the world for total cases at nearly 400,000, behind the United States, Brazil, India and Russia. The state’s daily increases have already surpassed the highest daily tally reported by any European country during the height of the pandemic there.Florida has reported over 10,000 new cases a day for the last six days in a row and Texas has reported over 10,000 cases for five out of the last seven days Reuters reports.Nobody has heard this because it isn’t true. https://t.co/vuZp3YAoJG— Tim O'Brien (@TimOBrien) July 21, 2020Trump’s tweet was immediately pounced upon with the president accused of “lying” and of being a “clown”.You have not heard or read this because it is not true.

The UK, for example, has done 198 tests per 1,000 residents. The US has done 148 per 1,000.It’s not due to population, either. The US has 4x as many people as Germany but 98x more cases. And Germany had the highest number of cases on the list.— Brian Klaas (@brianklaas) July 21, 2020I JUST MAKE SHIT UP!https://t.co/2lOwnX0XFMhttps://t.co/hrWTvQ3AEKpic.twitter.com/0pR8BCQUAA— Eric Wolfson (@EricWolfson) July 21, 2020Earlier on Tuesday Trump posted another tweet in which he advocated the wearing of face masks, describing it as “an act of patriotism”.The tweet follows months of resistance to being publicly seen in the coverings which are deemed vital to slowing the spread of the virus.We are United in our effort to defeat the Invisible China Virus, and many people say that it is Patriotic to wear a face mask when you can’t socially distance. There is nobody more Patriotic than me, your favorite President! pic.twitter.com/iQOd1whktN— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 20, 2020In the tweet, he also referred to the coronavirus as the “Invisible China Virus”.The president’s response comes after a White House debate over how best to deploy its greatest and most volatile asset – him – played out in public with his poll numbers faltering, PA Media reports. One week after a 2020 election campaign shake-up, the plan is for Trump to again become a regular public presence at the podium as confirmed coronavirus cases spike across America.The return to briefings has been championed in the West Wing by senior adviser Kellyanne Conway, who advocated publicly last week for Trump to return to the podium to more clearly highlight steps towards economic recovery, but also create a stage to display leadership by addressing Americans’ concerns about Covid-19.“His approval rating on the pandemic was higher when he was at the podium,” Conway said, in a tacit admission of what is largely unspoken aloud by Trump aides: that he is behind in both public and private surveys.Related...

The final boss and other late-game content revealed
Signalwire, which makes APIs and open source software for online communication, is releasing a new video conferencing platform that's meant to replicate an office environment in a virtual setting.  Cantina runs in a browser and gives users the option to end-to-end encrypt meetings. It also has standing meeting rooms people can pop into to recreate the feeling of being in an office.  Signalwire cofounders Anthony Minessale and Sean Heiney originally built it as an internal tool and released it publicly because of the coronavirus pandemic. Click here for more BI Prime stories.  Anthony Minessale and Sean Heiney have been working together to create better video communication tools for the last decade. After meeting through Minessale's open-source communication project FreeSWITCH, they cofounded a video API startup, SignalWire, which is now launching a new video conferencing platform that they say works better than competitors like Zoom. The app, called Cantina, is meant to replicate an office environment in a virtual setting and has the ability to host calls that are end-to-end encrypted, a technology feature that few video communications tools currently have.  It started as a tool for internal use: Signalwire built it because, as a fully remote company, it wasn't satisfied with other options on the market. When team-members would use it for sales calls, they would always get questions from customers about where to get the tool. When the coronavirus pandemic hit, Minessale and Heiney realized that the now-remote world needed a video communication system that could better mimic real-life, and decided to launch it publicly.  "We basically just mandated that we would get a prototype done as fast as possible to demonstrate all the functionality that SignalWire has to offer," Minessale told Business Insider.  With Cantina, users can host video calls and webinars for thousands of people, similar to Zoom, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams, it has a unique overall philosophy for its users: More than solving the technical problems of communication tools, Cantina aims to solve some of the social problems that occur when everyone is working remotely, Heiney said.  Companies can set up static virtual rooms that employees can drop in and out of to replicate the feeling of a shared office space, and it's all run out of a "command center" that all employees can see. The app runs in a web browser on desktop or mobile, no downloads needed. "There's certain things that are lost in that office environment and we've done things to mitigate some of that, like the informal water cooler chatter is valuable sometimes," Heiney said. "We've worked through a lot of that over the last couple of years with some real features and functions around that, that make this a real remote work environment replacement."  What led Minessale and Heiney to Cantina   The process started in 2005 when Minessale created an open source project called FreeSWITCH which was a platform for online communications. Many well known companies, including Netflix, Amazon, and Vonage, used its open source code to build various communications systems like customer service or internal chat tools, Signalwire COO Heiney said.  "It's literally been at the heart of the communications revolution of the digital era," he said. "Billions of dollars of value has been built upon it."  Eventually, Minessale realized that he could build a formal business around the technology he had created. Companies that were using the code often came to him to ask for new features, or because they had run into issues when trying to scale it to meet the needs of a massive organization. That's when Minessale and Heiney created Signalwire, to sell application programming interfaces — APIs — for voice, video, and text communication, alongside FreeSWITCH's open source platform.  Signalwire raised $11.5 million in Series A funding in 2019, and its backers include Storm Ventures, Samsung NEXT and Sequoia Capital and executives like Eric Yuan from Zoom and Jerry Yang from Yahoo.  How Signalwire will sell Cantina Signalwire has 250 customers trying out the new video conferencing service, and will soon start selling it outright. It just hired a new VP of business development and global channels — former Barracude exec Ezra Hookano — to help with its sales strategy of selling through IT reseller partners. The company is still deciding pricing for Cantina but Heiney said it will give customers a 30 day free trial, and then charge based on the total number of users, versus on a per user basis.  Beyond replicating aspects of in-office interaction, Cantina has a security-first mindset and flexibility that will differentiate it from competitors, he said.  "We were always designed with data privacy in mind from inception," Heiney said. "So we're not subject to the same kind of problems historically faced with some of the other vendors." Signalwire runs its APIs and software in almost every available public cloud, and can adapt quickly to the specific needs of companies. For example, a customer in Bahrain requires all its data to stay within the country at all times, so for that customer Signalwire runs only in data centers in Bahrain.  Cantina also gives users the open to end-to-end encrypt their calls. However, if they want a call recorded or transcribed then it can't be encrypted, Minessale said, because there's a third party involved. Calls between individuals can be end-to-end encrypted though. This is similar to the model Zoom settled on for its encryption plans. Zoom was originally criticized for marketing itself as fully encrypted when it wasn't, and then faced an additional backlash for its initial plans to only give encryption to paid users.

TikTok has featured shoppable ads for some time, and now it looks like the teen-favorite platform is bringing the option to shop in-app.Unlike the paid-for video ads from major brands, this offering could theoretically allow any TikToker to turn the platform into a one-stop shop for his or her own online store.A TikTok engineer initially broke the new feature development on a popular Chinese forum.Fabian Bern, founder of the Chinese influencer agency Uplab, shared a Twitter post Thursday showing off one of the shoppable short-form videos featuring a pint-sized puppy influencer on TikTok in a handmade panda costume.If a TikToker hypothetically wanted to buy one of those costumes for themselves, they can click on the video and be taken to the creator’s store—all without leaving the TikTok app.Per Bern, the feature has been live on TikTok’s Chinese counterpart, Douyin, since early 2018.
