How to enable the Guest User account on your Mac

There are lots of reasons to use the Guest User feature on your Mac. For most of us that'll be so others don't have unauthorized access to our files and settings. You can limit what they can and can't do fairly easily so you can be sure at all times that no one is doing things on your Mac that they shouldn't. Here's how to turn on the Guest User account:

How to stop Facebook from constantly tracking and recording your location

Use Nearby Friends? If you don't want Facebook for iPhone tracking your every move, you're going to want to change your settings.

I like using Facebook to share what I want, when I want, and it's fair game. But many of us don't fancy a social network tracking our every move, even privately. If you use Facebook's Nearby Friends feature, however, you may be at risk of just that. If you'd prefer not to have a personal map of every place you've been accessible via your Facebook account, here's how to change your settings and put the social network back in its place.

How to change what iPhone or iPad is used to share your location

If you use location sharing with family and friends, you'll want to make sure iOS is sharing from the right device.

There are lots of reasons you may want to share your location through the Messages app or Find My Friends. For example, sharing a location is a lot faster than manually typing out a location to someone. If you have more than one iOS device, maybe an iPhone and an iPad for example, you may want to change which one is used for default location sharing.

How to disable quick reply messaging on the Lock screen of your iPhone or iPad

Quick reply messaging from your Lock screen may be convenient, but it isn't secure.

With interactive notifications you can swipe left across any iMessage on the Lock screen and quickly send off a reply, no passcode, password, or Touch ID required. That's great if you're always in a rush and just need to answer everything and anything as fast as possible. It's not so great if you often leave your iPhone or iPad unattended, where other people can potentially reply to your messages either as a prank or maliciously. Interactive notifications are enabled by default, but if you'd rather have security than convenience, you can easily turn them off.

How to only allow apps to see your location while you're using them in iOS 8

Prior to iOS 8, you only had two options when it came to sharing your location with App Store apps, share or don't share. That meant if you wanted an app to use your location while you were actively using it, but never in the background, you couldn't have both without changing settings. Now, you can have the best of both worlds by just changing a few settings.
