I’ve been using social media apps for well over a decade, and over that period, there have certainly been things that I’ve posted that I’m glad the whole world wasn’t able to see. In fact, some accounts (like Instagram and TikTok) I permanently leave in private mode, so that only select people can see what I post.

Want to track your sleep with your Fitbit? Here’s how to do it.

Don’t want bulk? No problem with these thing Galaxy S20+ cases.
