Note to Parents about Phone Data Recovery

Parents. We don’t give advice on raising children (there are some tips here). Still, we know you may have concerns about using data recovery on your devices. Ideally, you want to always respect your kids privacy. They need more of it as they get older, and as you try give them more privacy you earn their respect. Is data recovery crossing that line? Or is it better to be safe than sorry?

Ironically, if you own a phone data recovery stick, you may never need to cross that line. We think if you tell the kids you’ll be using data and text recovery, you will be less likely to actually need it.

Doing this might empower your kids to do the right thing even in the face of peer pressure. They will know not misuse their phones because you are involved. They can tell their friends you are checking the phone. This might help take is a lot of pressure off a kid – especially when they know you really are able to check in!

Don’t wait!
Should the need ever to recover text messages ever come, you’ll be ready. As you may know, data recovery is works best when you use it immediately after something is deleted. If you have wait for an order to arrive, you may miss the chance to recover the deleted data. Plus, that threat to monitor phone usage is taken more seriously when you already own a recovery stick.

If you did wait…
Your kids know that with enough time/usage, even data recovery can’t recover a deleted file. The best chance you have to recover data is by turning the phone off until its recovered… and we don’t expect that to go over well.

Do you have questions about data recovery? How long do you have to recover data? How does it work? Check out our guide to how data recovery works for all the details.

Computers and mobile devices take shortcuts when it comes to deleting a file. They don’t really wipe out the data, only its “name” is removed from a list of available files. The data remains until the computer decides the location it is using in memory is needed – at which point it’ll replace the old space with something new. Read more…

Time matters, but only in terms that your device might decide it needs that space for a new file. You can turn off the device and possibly keep it from using that memory.

Body Worn Cameras helping Law Enforcement

Those in law enforcement are increasingly looking for the witness that comes from a body worn camera. Car cameras cannot see everywhere, and they cannot go everywhere a body worn camera can go. These body worn cameras are small and affordable, and audio capabilities are available to law enforcement after verification. They are discrete if needed but may be visible if desired and include a built-in DVR. Many body worn cameras do not include a DVR and an additional cost and setup is required. If you are looking for a simple to use all in one body worn camera, these might be just what you are looking for!


Reminder: Change your Camera’s Passwords!

You love your surveillance for its ability to keep you connected from anywhere. Keep that private, make sure you set a new password on your camera so you don’t fall victim to eavesdroppers.

This article in PC World Magazine lays it out. If you don’t change your password, you are opening your home or business to the world. You may think you are too small to be found, but internet search can find your cameras. Websites deploy programed bots to search the internet and find cameras in troves. If they detect your camera, they will know that camera’s default password – the one that all versions of your camera comes with out of the box – and will have instant access to your video feeds. Owners of these websites then publish the default password and a link to the camera for anyone to see. Governments want to shut down these sites – but what they are doing may not be illegal. Even if the sites are shut down, you still need to update your password often because you can still be found, and using a known password opens your cameras to anyone.

If you own a camera, change the password. Contact us if you need help changing the password. If you are considering buying a camera, be sure to change its password to prevent any unwanted access.

See internet history, emails with pictures call logs and more. All these kinds of data are accessible with the right recovery software. Not only that, but you’ll get real product support should anything technical get in your way.

safe recovery

Our scans are safe for your device. Other recovery apps may want you to hack your phone via a process called a “Jailbreak.” We’re different! Our top three recovery solutions do not require any special steps, its as easy as clicking a scan button. (Jailbreaking can actually permanently remove the deleted data you wanted to recover. We highly recommend against it or downloading apps to recover data – your data is easier to recover if you do not install recovery apps on it. See how data recovery works). Best of all, our software only scans the memory, it doesn’t alter the device (there will be no unsightly apps on your device). You won’t be handing your kids a hacked phone.

better recovery

Downloadable recovery? We recommend software that runs on USB Sticks and here’s why: They are physical devices you can take anywhere and put away until you need it. Downloading software is a pain and the files are easy to lose. Downloading is more technical; computers rarely ever trust downloaded programs and give security warnings (perhaps for a good reason since programs can contain spyware or use hacking methods to access your device.)

That is why we made a list of the top data recovery USB Sticks. These recover text messages, data or images and  monitoring of phone usage that are easy, secure and work. You can lock them up, take them to any PC and run the recovery right off the USB Stick. You’ll love the details we’ll give and the support you’ll receive.

The process is simple. Our USB sticks connect to your computer and gain normal access to your device for a scan. It knows where to look and how to recover sectors of missing data automatically. When you disconnect the device, nothing is harmed, altered, or added. Anything found is placed in a report.

The time you’ll save by not having to hack, or comb over the internet for a “free” solution is worth the price of these top recovery sticks. You are not alone, with free phone and/or email support.

Time is critical! We ship fast and free† If you wait too long, simple phone usage can lower the chances of recovering a deleted texts. Read our note to parents.

Will iRecovery Work on iOS Updates?

Will iRecovery Work on the iOS Updates?

Almost every year Apple Rolls out an update to their popular iOS for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. If you are in the market recovery software for the iPhone or iOS, you may be happy to know Paraben’s iRecovery Stick will indeed work. There are a lot of misleading listings online about iRecovery Stick. We recommend you look at one of these listings for updated and accurate information:



Limits for Wiped iOS devices

While there is support for iOS 8, there are some things you should understand. There are two forms of updates for iOS. One completely wipes the memory, the other keeps the memory and only replaces iOS itself. Most devices will update without a complete wipe of the memory, and those devices present no special problems for data recovery. However, if a device was completely wiped, recovering data will be limited.  For more details why, read our article on how recovery software works.


iOS Updates and iRecovery

Paraben designs iRecovery to scan the memory of an iOS device in key areas using different methods to recover the data. When there is an update, Apple might decide that the area used for Text Messages is more logical somewhere else and move it. This kind of change might limit recovery, but Paraben regularly updates its iRecovery Stick to adapt to these kinds of changes.  New customers who want to wait for official word before purchasing can visit the sites above for update information.

NOTE: As of the writing of this post, iOS 8.1 is the most recent update.


Nannies Caught Abusing Kids on Nanny Cam and Punished

Warning, videos contain graphic content of real events and people

It is difficult to think that anyone would hurt a child. Sadly, the unimaginable is a real occurrence.  While many cases of child abuse goes unpunished and unproven, nanny cams are putting a stop to the cruelty of others and bringing some justice for their victims and their families.  Below are real, shocking videos captured by nanny cams that have gone viral and helped save lives.

These videos and stories are disturbing.  There are some important notes we want you to keep in mind. We linked to articles that show the outcome of any trial that resulted out of the nanny cam footage whenever possible. We try only to show videos where the person was indeed found guilty of the acts implied by the videos.

A babysitter from Jacksonville, FL has been sentenced to state prison after pleading guilty to 3 out of 4 counts of felony child abuse. 53 year old, Jeannine Marie Campbell, was facing 20 years, when she accepted a plea bargain, last month.Duval County, circuit court Judge Adrian Soud sentenced Campbell to eight years – for three separate counts, with seven years probation. She was credited 163 days, after spending six months in county jail awaiting trial.

The nightmare nanny caught on camera slapping and shaking a 5-month-old Staten Island girl has admitted abusing the baby and now faces up to 10 months behind bars, prosecutors said Tuesday. Mamura Nasirova, 52, pleaded guilty to two counts of endangering the welfare of a child Monday for the horrible Jan. 28 attack captured on a hidden camera

Nightmare Nanny Pleads Guilty Child Abuse

The Kuantan Malaysian court has sentenced Yuliana, a housemaid from Indonesia, to 20 years of imprisonment for attempted murder and physical violence against her employer’s child.

Indonesian Maid in Malaysia Caught Tossing Baby on Ground

A nanny cam is an amazing tool, and one should be used as a deterrent to crime. They are hidden to prevent tampering, but being hidden means a nanny will always wonder when and where they are being recorded, it helps to thwart any thought that they can get away with something. A nanny who knows he or she is being watched on invisible surveillance systems is far less likely to ever harm a child. That is why nanny cams should be installed before any suspicions arise.

Never take the law into your own hands and put a child or your family at risk for the purpose of collecting evidence. If you have serious suspicions that a child is in danger, report the danger first. While the nannies in these videos were caught, thanks to nanny cams, imagine how much safer the children might have been had these nannies knew they were being watched.  How much safer would the children been had the parents simply trusted their instincts and fired the nanny? Get a nanny cam, but use it to prevent abuse in hopes that you never capture it on tape. If you think you might capture abuse, find a new nanny and get a nanny cam for the next one.

How Data Recovery Works

hard driveComputers take Shortcuts

To a computer, any file is nothing more than a long series of ones and zeros. A single file, even a small one, contains a large number of ones and zeros. So many, that it would take a very long time to actually get rid everything. Instead, it takes a shortcut… it doesn’t actually erase the file, it just erases the very beginning of the file. Doing this makes that space on your disk look as though it is available for a new file to live once one is created.

Because of this shortcut whenever you delete a file, it isn’t truly gone at first. It will only be gone for good when 1) you create a new file and 2) the computer decides that the deleted file is a good place to write it down. Still, even when this happens, the file can still exist partially if, for example, the new file is smaller than the older file.

How Data Recovery Works

Data recovery scans your disk for data that has lost its “beginning” point. Then it tries to figure out what kind of file it used to be. Once it knows that, it adds back the parts that were removed and the file lives again!

When Data Can No Longer Be Recovered

The age of a deleted file has nothing to do if it is recoverable. The real reason files become unrecoverable comes down to how many new files the computer is making. If you download large files, if you make new files often, the computer is going to need somewhere to write the file’s data – and sooner or later it’ll pick the space an old deleted file used to be.  When that happens, the file loses the ability to be fully recovered. Is it too late to recover a file? Maybe not! It depends on how much new data is created on your computer – so if you do not add new things to your computer it might be very easy to recover a deleted file.

Recovering from Re-Formated Disks

Reformatting a disk doesn’t usually erase its contents.  To erase a disk, your hard drive has to write millions, billions, or even trillions of zeros, and this process can take hours or even days. Instead, reformatted disks do a “quick format” and erase its record of files, not the files themselves. Data recovery software can still work, however the life of a deleted file is shorter because the computer is not very pick about where to make its new files.

Mount-free Trackers

Portable GPS trackers

You may not be interested in tracking only a vehicle. Sometimes tracking inventory and goods is more important. In these cases, having a mount may not be necessary at all. Sometimes, you will want to provide your own mount or have a professional install.

In almost any case,a flexible, portable GPS Tracker may be a better idea. Consider a small GPS Tracker can fit in most packages or bags, or can simply sit in the cab on the dashboard or plugged into the cigarette lighter/power port. Use one tracker and swap it between two vehicles, be flexible and frugal.

Most of our GPS Trackers are in the category of mount free, small and portable. The question for you may come down to rather you require live tracking or do you need a GPS history logger?
