Unavailable in your country – a myth with UnoTelly





UnoTelly might be the service that will solve one of the biggest problems people have on the internet nowadays: geo-restricted content. In this editorial, I will be reviewing UnoTelly and explaining why it’s a service that needs to get more attention, all the while explaining its purpose, its goal and its tariffs. Although you can bypass geolocation restrictions that pop up on the internet manually, UnoTelly is not just a helpful tool for that, but an entire service with a wide range of uses. Whenever you see “unavailable in your country” or “not available in your country” on Youtube, Spotify, Netflix, TV channels, video streams, network errors and such, UnoTelly might have a completely legal solution.

I’m sure many of you have encountered the not available in your country error on various websites, especially if you’re not a U.S. resident. The people who reside within Europe, Asia and Canada seem to be most impacted by the unavailable in your country notification and some are already very angry about the geolocation restrictions that they’re faced with. Although you can work around these things by meddling with network settings, there’s an easier solution and it’s called UnoTelly. So far, this is the easiest method I’ve found to watch videos that are not available in your country.

First off, you should know that UnoTelly will be able to remove all the unavailable in your country errors from any webpage that you visit, but it’s not for free. It’s not expensive, and you can actually try it out before committing to a subscription, which is a great way to find out if you really truly need such a service or not. If you do need it because you would like to access content that is not available in your country from Netflix, Spotify, Hulu, Pandora, local TV channels, regional services like HBO Go and such, but can’t because you always get an unavailable in your country notification, UnoTelly might be a good solution.

You can try out the service that UnoTelly offers for 8 days, and you don’t need to do much save for creating an account (which takes less than a minute) and confirming it. You will have to follow a few instructions to properly set up UnoTelly, but thankfully, UnoTelly does have a huge database of guides and helpful walkthroughs that will teach you all you need to know about using UnoTelly, UnoDNS and even UnoVPN, if that floats your boat.

Since this is more of a review, the first thing I would like to point out about UnoTelly is that you won’t be left in the dark if you’re experiencing issues. Many people who have encountered the unavailable in your country notification have searched the web for fixes, workarounds and hacks and have come to realize that it’s difficult to meddle with network settings and DNS settings without the proper guide. UnoTelly offers a lot of information about how you need to set your computer or mobile device up in order to be able to use UnoTelly and consequently, any service or website from across the Earth.


The UnoTelly dashboard looks a lot like Windows Tiles and is easy to rearrange and use

For me, since I currently reside in Europe, UnoTelly is a great asset because I can listen to Spotify, a service that I have been longing for for quite some time now. Also, to be able to tune into Netflix is a great bonus. Regarding that, you can’t get access to paid content just like that. You do need to have a subscription set up for every type of paid service, including Netflix, HBO, Adult Swim and all that jazz. But the fact that you have the possibility of getting a subscription and enjoying it no matter where you reside is quite appealing to me. What would be more appealing: if these services were globally available. That’s an idea, Netflix!

But UnoTelly is not just a service for Europeans getting the unavailable in your country notification, it’s for everyone, all across the globe. No matter where you are, you can access content that would otherwise be restricted in your area because of geolocation and regional restrictions. Regardless of what service you want to access, UnoTelly will let you do that in a flash and without too much of a hassle. The initial setup process is easy and if you’re not comfortable with it, there are a lot of guides on the website that will help you out, as well as the diligent support team.

Since UnoTelly is mainly focused on video streaming, that’s what the service excels at. Once you get an account and try it out, you will notice that your streaming speed and quality will not be affected, which is something I appreciated during my experience with UnoTelly. The same applies for streaming from Spotify, so you’re going to get the same quality content that you would if you were in the region that the service is destined for. Unlike a VPN service, UnoDNS doesn’t affect your streaming experience, which is a plus.

You can use UnoVPN as well if you need to, but they make it very clear that you should not use it for malicious purposes, such as downloading copyrighted content from torrent sites. VPN is not very common, but thanks to UnoTelly, I actually became accustomed to using it and setting it up, although at first it seemed like a difficult task. Luckily, there’s a guide for every kind of device that you want to use UnoVPN with.


Setup instructions everywhere!

If you’re thinking that “ah well, I wanted a service that would remove unavailable in your country notifications from my Smart TV or console”, UnoTelly can actually do that. You can use UnoTelly on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Linux, Max OS X, Ubuntu of course, iOS (iPads, iPhones and iPods), Nintendo Wii and Wii U, Playstation 3 and 4, Sonos, Amazon Kindle Fire HD,  Android, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Apple TV, Chromecast, LG smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV and many many more. You can check out the full list of supported devices on the UnoTelly website, but you’ll have to scroll quite a lot.

Overall, my experience with UnoTelly was very positive, but mostly because it really helped. I get a lot of unavailable in your country notifications and it has become annoying. Although the service is free for only 8 days, I recommend you guys try it out and let me know what you think. If you like it and find that it really helps your online experience, I think it’s definitely worth the monthly subscription.

The Premium UnoDNS plan will cost you $3.94 per month, and will grant you unlimited access to more than 300 channels (which you can browser through here), free requests for channels that aren’t in the list and you can cancel the subscription at any time. The Gold UnoDNS and UnoVPN plan is a bit more expensive at $4.93 per month, but aside from the features of UnoDNS, you also get UnoVPN with PPTP and OpenVPN Protocol support, as well as access to US, UK, Canada and Netherlands’ VPN servers. I would definitely say that the service is worth it, but it’s entirely up to you. Before getting a subscription, make sure to check out the channels and devices list so that you can be sure that you’ll be able to access the content you want from the device you have.

Although my overall experience with UnoTelly was positive, I do have one beef: Android and iOS. Since UnoTelly were nice enough to let me try out every feature in the box, I couldn’t help but try out UnoVPN as well. Even though I am satisfied and have learned a lot about setting up a VPN on Android and iOS, UnoTelly impacted performance. Granted, the devices I tried it on where not the best out there, so that might have been a factor, but the performance on my Android 4.4 KitKat tablet running a 1.33 GHz processor and 2 GB RAM decreased. The interface became sluggish and loading web pages was a pain. But Spotify worked and that was enough for me. What I found neat is that while UnoTelly and the VPN that I had set up were negatively impacting performance and prompted me to eventually remove the app, Spotify was still fine and dandy and working like a charm.

The experience on iOS was better, although it wasn’t as smooth as on a Windows 8.1 – equipped Toshiba Qosmio laptop or a MacBook Air. On the laptops, I didn’t even notice anything amiss and I could use UnoTelly without any problems. On iOS it was good, with a bit of lag when surfing the internets and using social apps, but on Android it was difficult. Still, I’m glad that UnoTelly approached me with the service, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to listen to all the music that I want to and watch all the Adult Swim possible without looking like a procrastinator. As a conclusion: if the pricing bothers you and you would rather do complicated network settings to make the unavailable in your country notification disappear, consider this: the trial might just convince you and gives you enough time to form a good idea about what you can actually do with UnoTelly.

Telegram launches a global self-custodial crypto wallet, excluding the US





Telegram, with 800 million monthly users, is launching a self-custodial crypto wallet. The move will solidify its presence in the vibrant crypto community that has grown from its chat platform and may attract more people to crypto.

Telegram and TON Foundation announced TON Space, a self-custodial wallet, on Wednesday at Singapore’s Token2049 crypto conference, which draws over 10,000 attendees.

Telegram has a complicated blockchain relationship. After the SEC sued Telegram over a massive initial coin offering, the chat app abandoned its Telegram Open Network (TON) blockchain project in 2020. The Open Network Foundation (TON Foundation), founded by open-source developers and blockchain enthusiasts, supports the development of The Open Network (TON), the blockchain powering a growing number of Telegram applications, including the wallet.

The Open Platform (TOP) and TOP Labs, a venture-building division, created the TON-based wallet.

TON Space will be available to Telegram users worldwide without wallet registration in November. The U.S., which has cracked down on the crypto industry and promoted many crypto apps to geofence users, is currently excluded from the feature.

Google’s massive antitrust trial begins, with bigger implications





The Justice Department’s landmark antitrust case against Google began in court today, setting off a months-long trial that could upend the tech world.

At issue is Google’s search business. The Justice Department claims that Google has violated antitrust laws to maintain its search title, but the company claims that it does so by providing a superior product.

The Justice Department sued Google for civil antitrust in late 2020 after a year-long investigation.

“If the government does not enforce the antitrust laws to enable competition, we will lose the next wave of innovation,” said then-Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey A. Rosen. “If that happens, Americans may never see the ‘next Google.’”

A large coalition of state attorneys general filed their own parallel suit against Google, but Judge Amit Mehta ruled that the states did not meet the bar to go to trial with their search ranking complaints.

The search business case against Google is separate from a federal antitrust lawsuit filed earlier this year. The Justice Department claims Google used “anticompetitive, exclusionary, and unlawful means” to neutralize threats to its digital advertising empire in that lawsuit.

Justice Department attorney Kenneth Dintzer set the stakes for the first major tech antitrust trial since Microsoft’s late 1990s reckoning on Tuesday. “This case is about the future of the internet, and whether Google’s search engine will ever face meaningful competition,” Dintzer said.

Beginning the trial, the government focused on Google’s deals with phone makers, most notably Apple, that give its search product top billing on new devices. Dintzer claimed that Google maintains and grows its search engine dominance by paying $10 billion annually for those arrangements.

“This feedback loop, this wheel, has been turning for more than 12 years,” he said. “And it always benefits Google.”

Google lawyer John Schmidtlein refuted that claim, hinting at the company’s legal defense in the coming weeks.

“Users today have more search options and more ways to access information online than ever before,” Schmidtlein said. Google will argue that it competes with Amazon, Expedia, and DoorDash, as well as Microsoft’s Bing search engine.

Google planted the seeds for this defense. According to internal research, Google Senior Vice President Prabhakar Raghavan said last year that more young people are using TikTok to search for information than Google Search.

In our studies, almost 40% of young people don’t use Google Maps or Search to find lunch, Raghavan said. “They use TikTok or Instagram.”

Google will be decided by U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta in the coming months. We’re far from that decision, but the company could be fined heavily or ordered to sell parts of its business.

The trial could change Google’s digital empire if the Justice Department wins. Other tech companies that dominated online markets in the last decade are also watching. If the government fails to hold an iconic Silicon Valley giant accountable, big tech will likely continue its aggressive growth trajectory.

If the Justice Department succeeds, the next decade could be different. The industry-wide reckoning could cripple incumbents and allow upstarts to define the next era of the internet, wresting the future from tech titans.

India warns of Android malware threats





India has warned its residents of an advanced Android malware that can access sensitive data and give hackers control over affected devices.

Indian Defence Ministry’s Controller General of Defence Accounts issued an advice on DogeRAT, a Remote Access Trojan discovered by cybersecurity company CloudSEK. The letter added the malware, which targets Android users in India, is spread via social networking and messaging platforms like ChatGPT, Opera Mini, and “premium versions” of YouTube, Netflix, and Instagram.

“Once installed on a victim’s device, the malware gains unauthorized access to sensitive data including contacts, messages and banking credentials,” the August 24 advisory stated.

The statement added the malware can hijack affected devices and send spam, make illicit payments, change files, take images and keystrokes, track the user’s location, and record audio.

The advisory notes that fraudsters recently utilized Telegram to spread fraudulent versions of ChatGPT, Instagram, Opera Mini, and YouTube. The threat’s origin is unknown.

The Defense Ministry advises its agencies and officials to avoid downloading apps from unknown third-party platforms and clicking on links from unknown senders. Install an antivirus program and update handsets with the newest software and security updates.

In late May, CloudSEK blogged that Java-based open-source Android spyware targeted banking and entertainment users. The startup also emphasized that while much of the marketing initially targeted Indian people, it is designed to be worldwide.

CloudSEK researchers said DogeRAT’s author demonstrated on GitHub that a Telegram bot and an open-source NodeJS app hosting platform could begin the malware campaign.

Local news outlet Moneycontrol reported the advisory’s emergency.

Cybersecurity breaches have increased in India, the world’s second-largest internet market after China, due to digitization. The Indian IT ministry recorded 192,439 government department cybersecurity incidents in 2022, up 171% from 70,798 in 2018.

Last year, a major cybersecurity breach hit India’s largest public medical facility, AIIMS in New Delhi. The administration told lawmakers in December that the ransomware attack affected five servers with 1.3 gigabytes of data.
