Internet is full of information and myths. It has been possible for a myth to spread at a rapid pace in no time due to internet connectivity and its huge reach these days. Today we are going to list the top 5 technology myths you should stop believing right now.
1.” Incognito” browsing makes you completely Anonymous
Most internet users believe that using incognito mode makes them completely anonymous on the internet and if you are one of them who believe this then you are completely wrong. Incognito mode doesn’t allow previously fetched cookies to the website and your search history won’t be stored locally. But that won’t stop your internet service provider (ISP) from tracking your web activities and it’s not going to fake your location from the sites you visit.
2 . The higher megapixels a camera has, the better photos it takes.
Nowadays smartphone manufacturers put great emphasis on the camera of the smartphones and you can frequently hear about the 48, 64, and 108 megapixels camera on the latest phones and you along with 68% of smartphone users think that The higher value of megapixels a camera has, the better photos it takes is totally a myth and it is far from the truth. The quality of a camera is highly influenced by the sensor quality, not by its megapixel resolution. The quality of the lenses that you use plays a vital role, and even more when it has to handle more Megapixels.
3. Deleting the files from the recycle bin permanently deletes them
This is one of the most common technology myths. I am pretty sure that you are also one of them who believes Deleting the files from the recycle bin permanently deletes them but it isn’t completely true.
When you delete data from the Recycle Bin, Windows marks it as deleted and frees the space. But data is still there and waiting to be overwritten by more data; until and unless you put new files in that particular folder you can retrieve the data anytime using recovery tools.
4. The higher the RAM is, the faster your PC will run.
Like me, you must have always wanted to get a PC with more RAM than you currently have so that the pc runs faster. But in reality, RAM isn’t the only factor to determine how fast your pc will run. In fact, RAM is just a super fast temporary storage space where your currently active programs reside. Increasing RAM will help more programs to open simultaneously.
5. You shouldn’t use your phone while charging.
It is frequently advised by our parents not to use the phone while charging. We’ve often heard that using your phone while charging has a chance of it exploding in your hand, but there is 0% truth in it. In fact, if you use a faulty charger or your phone has some manufacturing fault, there might be a chance of exploding. The worst that can happen during the charging is that your phone warms up slightly and it is perfectly fine to use a phone while charging.
