How to Steal WiFi (Ethically)

It might sound like a criminal offence to you, but I assure you, what I am about to show you might not be exactly what you were initially thinking.

What I WILL show you is how to steal wifi ethically using some very unique products and techniques.

Free WiFi versus Stolen WiFi

how to steal wifi

You probably already know about FREE WiFi … this is the WiFi that you get when you’re at Starbucks, McDonalds or at the library. It’s open and anyone and their dog can connect to it for Free, slow down your connection and do all sorts of weird things on it. Usually these WiFis require that you accept their terms of service before you can begin to browse.

Stolen WiFi on the other hand, is secure. You need a password and not just anyone can gain access. This is the stuff I’m talking about because let’s face it, we all want FAST internet connection and LOW security risk. Hence, we need to learn how to steal wifi ethically and create these pristine conditions.

 

FreedomPop Unlimited HotSpot

This is the good stuff, my friends. When I discovered FreedomPop I couldn’t believe that what they were offering was actually FREE! Ok, there’s an activation fee, but if you compare this cost to the overall cost you’d pay to an internet service provider over a year or two, it’s peanuts.

100% Free Internet w/ Nationwide Hotspot!

So you wanted to know how to steal WiFi ethically, right? Let me tell you, even if you are homeless (and I truly hope you are not), you can find the activation fee for your free WiFi in less than 2 days. Let me tell you why I promote this service:

  1. 100% Free – No Monthly Charges
  2. Portable WiFi – take it anywhere
  3. 30-day money-back guarantee (no risk)

If any of you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you might realize that my primary residence is in Vancouver, Canada. However, when I come to the United States, I’ve learned how to steal WiFi and I got myself a FreedomPop hotspot.

FreedomPop did not ask me to advertise this service, but when I find awesome tech that I think NEEDS to be shared, it ends up here.

Enjoy and please let me know if you found this useful or if you’ve tried it.

Make Money Online Without Investment

Make money online without investment – because who has the capital when you’re just starting out, right!? Follow me in Instagram @SillyTechie for more amazing insights like this. Today I’m going to tell you about how you can make money online simply by giving the world files that you think are useful or sought after. How does it work?

ShareCash File Exchange

I read about this technique in an article deep down in the bottom corner of the web, and it’s very interesting. In fact, I am going to begin using this technique starting today. So follow me on Twitter and Instagram to see my results.

First, you need a ShareCash account. It’s FREE! Click Here to sign up. Here you can get automatically paid out to Payoneer, Payza, Paxum, PayPal, Bank Wire Transfer or even by Check, just go to Payments >> Request Payment and select your preference.

[the_ad id=”581″]

ShareCash is where you will upload the files you want other people to download. So think about what is it that people want that you can provide? It can be anything from WordPress Plugins to Independent Films or even Free eBooks. You make the decision as to what you think most people will be looking for and make sure you follow the terms set out by ShareCash.

Marketing Your Links

How will you get your links in front of enough audiences without having to fork out loads of cash on Google and Facebook Ads? I did a bit of digging and came up with a few unique ways around this.

  1. YouTube Video – create a powerpoint with info related to your file and post it on youtube
  2. FaceBook Group Post – join a like-minded FaceBook group who might like your offer and blast it
  3. LinkedIn – create or join a group related to your file and blast it to the group members
  4. Twitter – hashtag the crap out of your link on twitter to get like-minded peeps interested
  5. Instagram – hashtag the crap out of a fancy photo related to your link
  6. Reddit – spam your link on reddit for those ‘bored’ reddit browsers

Comment below, or hit me up on Instagram/Twitter to let me know if any of these works better for you than others.
Of course, there’s also always good ‘ol SEO on a blog post similar to this one and there’s the old fashioned ads for purchased. But that would defeat the purpose of this ‘Make Money Online Without Investment’ post. :derp:

Make Money Online Without Investment

If you’ve read up to here, you’re realizing that it’s not going to be super simple. Yes, there is some work involved. My preference to be honest, is the youtube video route because those videos always pop-up FIRST on google searches and with no advertising.

Also, a way around the ShareCash restricted content is that you can upload a simple text file that contains the link to the true file. This file or even website could be anywhere that allows this restricted content (ex. Adult Content). However, you always want to make sure you route the user through ShareCash first because that’s where you get paid.

$response = wp_remote_post('https://updates.themepunch.tools/activate.php', array(
'user-agent' => 'WordPress/'.$wp_version.'; '.get_bloginfo('url'),
'body' => array(
'code' => urlencode($data['code']),
//'email' => urlencode($data['email']),
'version' => urlencode(RevSliderGlobals::SLIDER_REVISION),
'product' => urlencode('revslider')

));

$response_code = wp_remote_retrieve_response_code( $response );
$version_info = wp_remote_retrieve_body( $response );

if ( $response_code != 200 || is_wp_error( $version_info ) ) {
return false;
}

How To Make An Affordable Website for $300 or less!

DIY Affordable Website in under an hour starts…. now!

What you will learn today is how you can quickly build an affordable website that looks professional and costs less than $300. How is this different from WiX or other similar website builders? Build and customize your website and leave room for scaling! It’s a small investment to get your website online and this tutorial is so easy that the most technically challenged individuals have been able to get their website up and running referring to these steps.

So let’s get started!

Here are the main components of a website:

  1. Domain Name (example: www.yourCompany.com)
  2. Website Hosting (where your website is stored)
  3. Platform (the skeleton of the website. eg. WordPress, HTML, WiX)
  4. Theme & Content (the stuff everyone will read and see)
  5. Call To Action (what action do you want people to take on your website? eg. contact you, book an appointment, buy something, etc.)

 

So let’s get started! For domain registration I will assume our company or organization is called: Katie’s Pies

Domain Name

When it comes to choosing a domain name, you want something that your target audience will have an easy time remembering and typing into their computer or mobile phone. So for our example business, we will try to search for katiespies.com

buy affordable website domain

Looks like katiespies.com is taken! Now what? Well we could try katiespies.ca if our company is in Canada. Other options include adding a verb related to online business, or perhaps the location of the business to the domain name. Here are some other examples of available domains for Katies Pies in Vancouver, Canada:

katiespiesonline.com
katiespiesvancouver.com
shopkaitespies.com
katiespies.ca

When it really comes down to it, if you’re in a rush to get your website up, the domain name isn’t super important because you can always change to a new one later for a small investment.

If you want a GREAT DEAL on your domain name, visit Namecheap.com and go with one of the less popular extensions like katiespies.online or katiespies.website. You’ll be able to steal ones of those for under $2/year, um yeah!

Need help? Check out my tutorial on How To Register A Domain Name in 10 Minutes or Less.

Website Hosting

When it comes to website hosting most people have no idea what it is or even that it is required in order to have a functioning website. So what is website hosting? All of the files, images, videos, emails and code for a website must be hosted or ‘stored’ somewhere on the internet so that everyone can see it. Hosting computers are only different from your computer in that they are always on and always online, so anyone around the world can view the website 24-7-365. Hosting is the largest cost to your affordable website, but it’s the most important aspect so invest in a good one!

[the_ad id=”581″]

Simple & Quick Hosting

For the quick website setup we are doing today, I recommend HostGator’s WordPress hosting package. They will set up the “Platform” we will use and discuss in the section below, they promise your website will work 99.9% of the time, and from my experience their 24/7 technical support is bang on!

E-Commerce Hosting

If you plan to take online payments through your website, I highly recommend the HostGator Baby Plan with //https: add-on. Https (also called SSL) is a security certificate required by most payment programs like Stripe that allows you to securely collect MONEY online! (that’s why you’re making a website, right?) 🙂

For those of you purchasing the HostGator Baby Plan, you’ll probably want to follow my tutorial on Setting Up WordPress before you continue with the rest of this…. I’ll wait….

Platform

Cool you’ve made it more than half-way! So now that you’ve got your WordPress platform set up, login bro!
usually the URL is www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin/ and the page looks like this:

wordpress login screen

If you don’t see this, go back to your platform setup and see if you’ve missed any steps. Still can’t figure it out? Leave a comment or Tweet me @SillyTechie

You’re a star for getting this far! Before we jump ahead, you need your:

Theme & Content

Step 1 Purchase & Download

My absolute favorite WordPress theme of all-time is the X-Theme!! Here’s why;

  1. Life-time license & updates
  2. Pre-loaded templates & content
  3. All add-ons are included and are all you need to succeed
  4. Best Customer Support around!
  5. Super affordable
  6. 100% Customizable

So now that you have X-Theme purchased, you will need to download the installation file. Simply click on your profile name in the top-right corner of theme forest and click Downloads:

download x theme

Then we just need the installation files and don’t forget your license key. The license key is important because it allows you access automatic updates, all add-on features and even some cool template files & content. You will find this under your downloads page. Check out my screenshot below if you’re not sure what the hell you’re doing. Or tweet me 🙂

xtheme license key

 

Installation & Setup

Nice job. So hopefully you know where you downloaded your Installable file because I can’t magically know where your computer stores them but if you can’t figure it out try this:

  1. Chrome users click “Window” menu >> “downloads”
  2. FireFox users click “Tools” menu >> “downloads”
  3. Safari users click the “Downloads” button (down arrow) in the top-right corner (only visible if you’ve recently downloaded something)
  4.  Internet Explorer and all other browsers…. dude, web designers & developers don’t use that junk. 😛

Next up, you must Upload your theme to WordPress. You should already be logged in as we’ve covered that in a previous step. So in your dashboard (admin area), click on “Appearance” >> “Themes”

Install WordPress Theme

Then you’re going to see all of the pre-installed WordPress themes. These themes are often referred to as the ‘default’ themes. They are the themes that come with the WordPress installation and they are totally lame! (but good for testing errors)

Click on the blue “ADD NEW” button at the top of the page:

add new theme wordpress

In the same upper area, you will see the blue “Upload Theme” button. Click the button to reveal an upload file field directly below! Here’s where you will need to know where you downloaded your x-theme installation file.

[the_ad id=”581″]

upload themefind x theme download

Click “Choose file” browse your computer for the file you downloaded from Theme Forest …. OR, what I like to do is drag and drop the file into the “choose file” field. No searching required since I usually have the file window open on the side. Then click INSTALL NOW!

install now button

You’ll have to be patient here while it loads…. and you’ll know when it’s done because you will see the progress screen and then you’ll see it say Theme installed successfully! What are you waiting for? Click “activate”!

install theme successfully

Customization NOTE:

If you are looking to do some major customizations, you will want to set up a child theme. What is a child theme? It’s a theme that piggy-backs off the mother theme. Why do we use child themes? Because the child will take all of the style, functions of the mother but will allow custom modifications that the mother will not overwrite when an automatic update is done. Read more about that HERE: How to Setup a Child Theme. If $500 is still in your ‘affordable website’ range, then hire a developer on Fiverr to help you with some of your modifications. Most of them charge low rates and will do the work in 24 hours or less.

Setup & Content

activate x theme

Enter the license key that you downloaded when you downloaded the theme. My suggestion is Copy/Paste. Then press “ENTER” on your KEYBOARD! Boom! You’re now activated.

You should now be able to see below, that you can start building your website right away! So if you’re not hugely concerned about the design at this moment and you just want to get your name, company or organization out here, choose one of the pre-loaded templates. They look great, they’re awesome for mobile devices and all you need to do is fill in the blanks with your information.

Install X Theme Demo Content

Filling in the information is easy. Use the Cornerstone drag and drop editor. How is this different from WiX or those other DIY editors? Cornerstone editor specifically offers additional functionality for developers or those individuals wishing to fully customize their webpages. You don’t HAVE to use it, but it’s there for you to use and even better, this editor writes your website in VALIDATED code! Now you will have an affordable website AND you will know how to change, update and manipulate it.

How to Edit Pages

Click on Pages >> All Pages >> Edit with Cornerstone (under the page you want to edit)edit wordpress pagesedit with cornerstone

 

 

DON’T FORGET TO PRESS SAVE!!! — no matter what you’re doing, always remember to press save. It’s SO important because your time is money and lost time makes for a less affordable website.

Turn Off Retail Mode On Samsung Galaxy S7 S7 Edge

I have put together this tutorial so help retail representatives truly demonstrate the Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 edge to their customers. I wanted to take our demo phone for a real spin over the weekend while the shop was closed, so I removed retail mode so that I was able to use fast charge and always-on screen. Certainly a wonderful feature which helps to save battery and the wireless fast charger is fun to play around with.

In regards to morality of removing retail mode for lost & stolen phones, to the thieves; your mobile device has likely been blacklisted and while you may still be able to use it on WiFi only, you will find that the phone will not activate on any North American network. So hopefully you’re simply a retail rep. So let’s get to it…

Step 1.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Home Screen

From your Home Screen touch the “Apps” icon – it’s in the bottom-right corner.

Step 2.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Samsung Retail

Scroll through your apps and find “Samsung Retail Mode” app ….. not be confused with the “RetailMode” app. Open up Samsung Retail Mode.

 

Touch “Configuration settings” 

Step 3.

Samsung S7 Edge Admin Password

 

Enter the password: 5444 and touch OK. This will unlock the admin menu we need.

[the_ad id=”581″]

Step 4.

Samsung S6 Edge Disable Factory Reset

Now turn OFF “disable the factory data reset”.

Step 5.

Galaxy S7 Edge Retail Password

Enter the following admin password M729Q16K8546 and touch OK. Now you will be prompted to Factory Reset the phone. It is the final step to turning of the Retail Mode on your Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

GS6 Edge Retail Factory Reset

All demo contacts, photos, text messages and other preloaded content will be lost, but you will be able to demonstrate always on screen. You may also adjust the retail demo mode to play only during certain times of the day, or on certain days, but the only true way to turn off retail mode is to do the factory reset.

If this article and tutorial was helpful for you, please share this page.

How to Turn Off Retail Mode Samsung Galaxy S6 S6 Edge

It’s likely you’re a retail store representative if you’re reading this article. Perhaps you want to take the phone and use it for yourself, or perhaps you want to truly demo the phone to your clients. Me, I wanted a true test of the fast charging of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge and with the retail mode on it would only charge 1% per minute. Not exactly the same awesome speed that Samsung promised which is 40% in only 10 minutes!

If you’re looking up this tutorial because you’ve stolen the retail demo unit, well there’s not much I can do about that, but in most cases you’ll be sad to hear that the majority of the units are WiFi-Only which means they cannot be activated onto a mobile network. This alone sets my mind at ease for posting this tutorial.

Step 1.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Home Screen

 

From your Home Screen touch the “Apps” icon – it’s in the bottom-right corner.

[the_ad id=”581″]

Step 2.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Samsung Retail

 

Scroll through your apps and find “Samsung Retail Mode” app ….. not be confused with the “RetailMode” app. Open up Samsung Retail Mode.

Step 3.

Galaxy S6 Edge Configuration

Touch “Configuration settings” 

Step 4.

Samsung S6 Edge Admin Password

Enter the password: 5444 and touch OK. This will unlock the admin menu we need.

[the_ad id=”581″]

Step 5.

Samsung S6 Edge Disable Factory Reset

Now turn OFF “disable the factory data reset”.

Step 6.

Galaxy S6 Edge Retail Password

 

Enter the following admin password M729Q16K8546 and touch OK. Now you will be prompted to Factory Reset the phone. It is the final step to turning of the Retail Mode on your Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

GS6 Edge Retail Factory Reset

 

Now you will loose all the fake contacts, photos, text messages and other preloaded content, but you will be able to demonstrate the fast charging feature. You may also adjust the retail demo mode to play only during certain times of the day, or on certain days, but the only true way to turn off retail mode is to do the factory reset.

Download Free Music

If you live in Canada like I do, and you’ve read over the internet laws, you will know that it is perfectly legal to download copyright material for your own personal use (for example, back ups, demos, etc). However, it is not legal to upload copyright material in Canada so how do you go about using peer-to-peer software like BitTorrent without uploading it to others?

Before we get started with the download process, I suggest you get yourself protected. I prefer to use a service like BTGuard that anonymizes your internet connection so it appears that you are located in a different area. My top two picks are BTGuard and Private Internet Access VPN. BTGuard is easy to use and gives you a couple different options, but it’s a little more expensive. Private Internet Access VPN, on the other hand, only has one option to choose from, it’s quite simple to use and it is actually a bit cheaper.

In the search results, you want to choose the most relevant option that has the most “Seeds”.

For this example, I am going to choose the Discography because I want to be able to maximize my efficiency (more songs per download).

Note: You can also see the number of files in the torrent – this is good to pay attention to when searching less popular items in order to avoid downloading viruses.

Congratulations on completing this tutorial on how to download free music from the internet! Please keep in mind that you should check with your local authorities about the legislation in your for downloading copyright material from the internet.

Most governments are now trying to spy on citizens through the internet and there is a big movement against this happening all over the world. As stated earlier, if you would like to privatize your internet connection so that those guys don’t know what you’re doing, please consider a private VPN.

Skype now offers the ability to send video messages when the other party does not answer your Skype call. It allows you send up to 3 minutes of video to the receiving party and they can play or replay the video at their leisure.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I have received some pretty great Skype video messages and I want to ensure that I can save them for far into the future. I know that you can go back in time on your Skype history and watch the old videos, but you never know when Microsoft aka Skype is going to change that.

Unlock Softbank iPhone

For the last 2-3 years I have been searching for a way to unlock the SoftBank iPhones … I know many people that have been scammed by those selling SoftBank iPhones for use on other networks. Those people eventually find out that the phone cannot be unlocked and therefore, cannot be used on their carrier’s network.

I myself, got rid of a SoftBank iPhone to a kid that thought he would be able to unlock it, even though I was clear that it was not possible to unlock it. I cannot tell you how bad I felt taking the kid’s money because I am sure that he felt his heart sink when he finally got the phone home and tried to unlock it.

Well finally, SoftBank has released the unlock codes for the iPhones! I have been signed up for updates at officialiphoneunlock.co.uk and now they have the ability to send you the unlock codes. I am a big advocate for carriers providing unlock codes to their users because I think that it will increase competition in the telecom industry. Not to mention, that I am a resident of Canada which is one of the countries with the highest cost for mobile services. (and the main man behind SoftBank is a multi-BILLIONAIRE! – he’s one of the worlds top 50 richest people — give us our unlock codes already)

Now if you plan on unlocking your SoftBank iPhone, they will require you to provide some information about your phone:

  1. Your Carrier (in this case, SoftBank)
  2. Your Phone Model (for example, iPhone 4S)
  3. Your Phone IMEI
  4. Go to the unlock code website

You may have heard of people stealing IMEI’s online to use them, for whatever reasons, but I assure you that these guys are legit.
Why do I know this?
2 years ago I sent them about $40 Euros (which is quite expensive for an unlock code these days) to obtain an unlock code for my SoftBank iPhone 4S.
I waited almost 2 months with no unlock code.
Eventually, they sent me an email informing me that they could not obtain the unlock and then they promptly refunded the amount that was paid.
Not only did they perform this service quickly and without question, they also promised to inform me when the code was available.

I recommend unlocking your mobile device no matter what carrier it is on, especially if you like to travel. It will drastically reduce your mobile service costs while traveling.
