Another one bites the dust - Reporo is shutting down. From Facebook land: EU hearing will be livestreamed, progressive groups want to tear the company apart and how to make the FB Pixel GDPR compliant. Shopify gets some competition from Adobe and Dropified has been telling customers you buy from AliExpress at a fraction of a cost.

The popular traffic source goes into liquidation.

In other words, if you have money with Reporo, it will very likely be gone.

As always, this came as a surprise. A few people have reported issues here and there with depositing or getting paid.

Unfortunately, a handful of people complaining is not uncommon even for the most legitimate businesses so everyone mostly ignored the noise.

If they owe you money, check their notice to creditors and see what’s the best action to get at least something back.

People are still able to log into their account but there are no payment methods available, thankfully.

Reporo was known as a quickly growing and relatively high quality adult traffic source, with premium traffic like RedTube.

Affiliates will miss Reporo and all the money it owes them.

Teens exposed by this one weird app!

When you hear "teens exposed", you usually think of the title of a PornHub video.. Well, not this time.

TeenSafe is meant to protect teenagers by letting their parents monitor their texts, phone calls, web history, location and app downloads.

It turns out TeenSafe’s ability to protect teenagers is comparable with the ability of this gate to protect your land from unwanted visitors.

TeenSafe left two of their servers, which were hosted on AWS, exposed and viewable by anyone.

Moreover, the database included information such as the parent’s email address, child’s Apple ID email address, device name, device unique identifier and plaintext passwords for the teenager’s Apple ID.

So… just about everything.
