5 Things You've Done That Are Probably Crimes


While using laptop, smartphone, or tablet outside, you break one of the laws listed below unknowingly. Thus, have a look on this tutorial.


1. The first and the foremost thing is you use the unsecure Wi-Fi connections. It is very common that Wi-Fi connections are free and thus, people use it frequently. There are many states where one had to pay a fine for using Wi-Fi of any surrounded area.

2. Also, if you are copying any software and passing it on to others then you are breaking EULA. By installing software on a system where it is not allowed, you are breaking EULA.

3. Further, downloading any popular media without the consent of its owner comes under copyright infringement. However, if the owner says that it is free then it is not copyright. For example, many retailers like iTunes and Amazon make free music available all the time.

4. Another act is Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (DMCA) which prevent people from getting around digital rights management. Digital rights management prevents the piracy of everything. If you are unlocking your phone then it means it is the option for it to work on all carriers. Although jailbreaking of iPhones is allowed as per Librarian of Congress (LoC) yet, it is not allowed for tablets. Make sure Apple voids your warranty when you jailbreak an iPhone.

5. Lastly, it is illegal to use work computers for personal use.

Thus, next time don’t do anything that can probably be considered as a crime. For more from the XpertCrewTM team, please follow us on Twitter @Techvedic or contact Techvedic’s computer support helpdesk, as per below contact-details:
