Let me make it very clear, adding money to the wallet is free by default. There is nothing special you have to do in order to add it for free, If there are websites claiming that there is a special hack to add for free then it is fake. Now let us move on and understand the process of adding money to our Paytm wallet.

Here is a video tutorial which you can refer to if you still have some doubts related to adding money,

Is the money in my Paytm Wallet safe?

  • This surely is the first thing that would come up in your mind, what if someone steels your phone! Is your money safe, people can even hack into your account and transfer it to their account. To address all these concerns Paytm now insures the money in your wallet. The best part is that you do not have to pay any added charges towards this insurance, anyone who has balance in their wallet automatically qualifies to be insured by Paytm.
  • The insurance amount is upto 20,000 which is more than sufficient in my opinion, It is applicable in case of theft or any unauthorized transactions. If it is a theft make sure you file a complaint and keep a copy of the FIR in place.
  • In order to claim the insurance you must notify the Paytm care at  paytm.com/care or by calling their Customer Care number +91 9643 979797 within 12 hours. This mandatory and failing to do so may make you illegible for the insurance.
  • In case of theft you must provide the FIR details to Paytm within 24 hours
  • The genuinity of the claim will be checked and if everything seem to be fine, Paytm will refund the lost money back to your wallet after confirming ownership of your wallet.
  • This is great news as this now indicates that our money is safer in paytm wallet than our normal wallets, if someone pick pockets our wallet we all know that it is gone forever as finding the person has never been a successful task
  • Follow the above steps when you lost your phone or your wallet has been hacked, this should help you out.

What are the limitations to add money in Paytm Wallet?

  • If you are a new user then the limit is capped at 20,000 rupees. Which means that you can add a maximum of 20,000 to your wallet as you are a non-KYC user
  • Once you become a Paytm VIP member in other words once you have submitted your KYC documents and upgrade your Paytm wallet, the limit gets raised to 1,00,000!
  • With digital transactions being more popular and widely accepted it is better you upgrade your account even though you may not cross 20,000 a month in Paytm
  • I have made a detailed post regarding upgrading Paytm Wallet , have a read

Conclusion

This pretty much is the process to add money to your wallet, if you have any specific queries please ask in the comments section.

Gmail Password recovery

How to Recover a Forgotten Gmail Password

How many times have you been told to keep your passwords updated to stay secure, you just updated you gmail password and because you do like very week you managed to forget it this time. Don’t worry, this post explains how you can recover your forgotten password and if you read more I have included an awesome method which will help you recover passwords of all websites and yes, I am talking about recovering those passwords without you having to reset them!

Here are the steps to recover your forgotten gmail password

You would have managed to forget your password but luckily gmail remembers it, but it wont give it to you so easily. You have to go through a validation process which establishes your authenticity to recover your account. Follow the steps below,

  • Go to Gmail.com and try logging in to your account, key in your gmail username and password(which would obiviously be wrong). You will prompted with message saying that the password is incorrect.

How to recover a forgotten gmail password

  • Now click on forgot password option as seen the picture above, you will get a host of recovery options based on the authentication settings you had done earlier.Pat your self if you have added a secondary email address or a phone number as it will make the recovery process easier.

remember old passwords

  • Once you click on forgot password, google asks you for any password which you have previously used for the account. If you do remember, enter that password and your done. If not(majority of us wouldn’t remember) click on try a different question as shown above

recover by text verification

  • Next if you have provided a number during registration then google will send a code to that number and your account can be recovered. If you have changed the number or do not have access to it then try a different question

asnwering security question

  • The next recovery option is you will be asked to answer a security question which you chose during your registration. That is always chose a question which you know the answer for without having to remember it while setting up your gmail account, something like what is your mother’s maiden name. Since you haven’t done that let us move on to the next option.

account recovery date

  • If you remember the date you created your gmail account then you have a lifeline again as google can help you out provided you remember the date, input the date and follow preceding steps. If you do not remember then follow the final step which may help you out.

last step recovery

  • If you failed to recover the password so far then last resort would be to give the most recent email id which you have used, gmail will send a code and ask some questions, if everything goes well you will be able to recover the password. To be frank you shouldn’t even to getting to last option as it is highly unlikely you’ll recover the password here. 

Hoping you have successfully retrieved your gmail password I request you to change the password and follow my guide below which help you remember all your passwords for any website. The only requirement is that you should have a gmail account and follow the steps below.

This password recovery guide only works if you have done the following settings, The following are the pre-requisites for my method to work.

  • You should have a gmail account
  • Go to Google passwords and sign in with your gmail credentials
  • Once you have signed in you will be shown two options as in the image below. Make sure you keep ‘Smart lock for Passwords‘ on. Also you can keep the ‘Auto sign-in‘  option on, so that you do not have to enter the password each time you go to a website as it would be already saved.

Recover_saved_passwords

Now you have done all the settings, why did we do this?

  • This ensures that whenever you log-in to any website it provides you an option to save the password(refer pic below). Once you have clicked on Save, it will save and store the password so that you do not have to type it each time.

Google_enable_save_password

  • This step is very important for you to be able to recover your passwords using this method, Always make sure you click on ‘Save‘ when ever you get a prompt like ‘Do you want google chrome to save your password for this website?’ when you login to any website.

Recover your forgotten passwords

  • If you have done all the above settings then you can recover your passwords easily. I was excited when I found out about this and so I taught i’ll write a article on this which would help many like me who are fed up recovering passwords the usual way.
  • Now, Let me assume that you have forgotten your password and you have not kept the auto sign-in option on or you have changed your device and you don’t remember any of your passwords. Relax, follow the guide below and you can easily find your password to any website you logged in previously.
  • Go to Google password (Don’t tell me you forgot your google password, Recover that and then proceed if you managed to forget even that :P)
  • Once you have signed in, you can see a list of websites as seen in the picture below. There it is! all the websites along with the username and password can be found here. Yes it is that simple, but to be frank I did not know this and that is way I am writing this post when I discovered this.

Google_passwords

  • In this huge list, go to the website for which you do not remember the password and then press on the ‘eye‘ symbol. Now you will be able to see the password for that website. I have attached a picture above for your reference. You can do this for any website you have logged in previously.
  • So say bye to ‘forgot your password‘ or ‘Reset password using your registered email‘ kind of options.Using google passwords you can recover password of any account be it Facebook, Microsoft, Flipkart, Amazon etc as everything will be stored in that page. However if you like to organize your passwords then I recommend you a free application to manage your passwords called Lastpass. It comes in the form of extension and also supports mobile apps, so it works across all devices.

Now that we know how to retrieve the passwords easily without having to send password reset mails each and every time, let’s move on the next part of the article. i.e how to create strong passwords and how to manage passwords.

How to create strong passwords?

Lastpass_password_manager

  • This is one more problem I faced when I sign up to websites. It is common for most websites to ask for a strong password as security is a problem now, Millions of accounts get hacked as we have seen with the data breach cases of big companies. So, most of the websites ask for a combination of small letter, character, number etc. to be included in the password.But sometimes it gets really difficult to get a suitable password matching the website requirement. There were times when I have tried more than 5 times with all the requirements but still not able to get a password which would satisfy their guidelines.
  • So I did some research and our best friend google provided a solution. The solution was Lastpass Password generator. So this tool helps in creating passwords without a hassle, So far passwords created using this have been accepted in a single shot there by saving a lot of time which I otherwise used to spend on creating passwords.
  • In case you are in a situation like me and struggling to create a suitable password then all you have to do is visit the link below,

  • You will be taken to Lastpass password generator where you can see a pre-created password which you can use, I am sure it will be accepted right away in the website which you were trying to sign up and do not worry, no password will be repeated and given to others as each time you refresh the page a new password will be created. Now you do not have to break your head to get a suitable password, the same can be easily done using the link above.

How to manage and organize passwords?

Password recover

  • So far I told you how to retrieve lost/forgotten passwords and also how to generate a strong password. The awesome fact is using Lastpass you can also save and manage your passwords.  You can easily auto store all your passwords and also create different groups like Social, Work etc. You will just have to remember a master password using which you can access all your passwords. This is a pretty handy tool provided you want to be organized and you work in a lot of websites. Perfect for people who work from home and it also has a free version which is more than sufficient.
  • Here are two guides which will help you in setting up Lastpass password manager,
  1. Lifehacker – Guide to set up Lastpass password manager
  2. How to geekSetting up Lastpass tutorial

Conclusion

Interview 2 : Meet a Freelancing MBA Graduate

This is the second interview in the series of interviews I will be conducting. I am doing this exercise because there is a lot of cynicism about earning money from home. There are so many ways to make money online. While there many scams, I found legit earning opportunities also. My blog features those online earning opportunities and these interviews will get opinions from people who have successfully earned online like me.

So, meet Mayur , An MBA Graduate and also someone who explored the world of online earning. Let us read about his journey online, His difficulties when he began and how he managed to earn some decent money afterwards.

1)When did you first come across the term ‘Make money online’ ?

A) I came across the term ‘Make money online’ few years back when there was a lot of buzz surrounding a survey website called Speak Asia.

2)Did you believe it is was possible to earn online?

A) To be honest, No. First time I tried to earn online was few years back when I was still in my high school and I heard about the website Speak Asia. When I learned that you can make money online filling surveys then I looked for all the paid survey websites and registered to all of them. I didn’t have any success in online money making at that time and I didn’t make even a single penny by working online at that time.

3)Which was the first site you started working online?

A) I first started working online on a website called Appen butler hill. I came across a subreddit Workonline on reddit which was earn by working online. I browsed this subreddit to find out that there are some online job profiles like Web search evaluator and social media evaluator which are very well paying online jobs. So, I applied for those two profiles in every online website which had those job positions and I first received reply from Appen for the profile of Social media evaluator. They had a very basic test and screening process which I cleared and I started working there in March of 2016.

4)How did you feel when you received your first payment?

A) It felt really good, I didn’t have high hopes for getting paid online as I had this mind-set that making money online is a Hoax and scam. I didn’t actually believe that I could make money online until I received my first salary in my bank account. I was very relieved when I received my first payment, It was more than relieving as the job I was doing was a very good paying one. I didn’t tell anyone my family, my friends about working online till I received my first payment in my bank account and they were also surprised about that as they also didn’t believe that one could actually earn online.

5)How did you balance your studies and online earning.

A) I never had problem in balancing studies and online earning, on an average I work only 2 hours in a day which isn’t hard or very demanding in a 24 hour day.

6)According to you, do we need special skills to earn online?

A) I don’t think that we need any special skills to earn online, Basic English and common sense is good to go. If you are trying to make money by doing some specialised freelance work like writing, coding or designing then you do need to be very good at them to be able to make money in a very competitive market but the job profiles like Social media evaluator and web search evaluator doesn’t require you to have special skills as the company itself would train and teach you about what you are required to do and how to do it.

7)Which are the sites/apps you are earning from currently?

A) Currently I am working for Appen as a Social media evaluator and for iSoftstone as Crowdsourcer.

8)Tell us one good and one bad thing about being a freelancer?

  • One good thing about being a freelancer is flexibility in working and also you get to be your own boss.
  • One bad thing about being a freelancer would be lack of stability, also personally for me I miss the work environment that a normal 9 to 5 job has.

9)What is your advice for someone who is just starting his online journey?

A) Do your research before doing any job online, Look for reviews and past experiences of others who have worked the same job profile. Never pay anything, If a website is asking you to pay then its probably a scam. Also, get used to writing E-mail and communicating to the company or your clients.

So, That is the end of the interview. Quite an Exciting journey isn’t it? So yes things began with curiosity for Mayur and then he found the right opportunities and utilized them. I would like to conclude by saying ‘Never discard an opportunity without trying, Trying is the least we can do’. Hope this interview gives you more confidence to start your working online journey, Please read my blog for legitimate online earning opportunities.

SquadRun Player Interview: Steve Fernandes

1)When did you hear about SquadRun for the first time?

I was strolling around in the Playstore looking for apps when this bright yellow icon caught my eye which said “get paid to play” , It grabbed my interest and let me tell you this , Hitting install was one of the best choices i’ve made!

2)Did you believe that you could earn by doing missions? (As this was something new)

When i first read the description of SquadRun where its concept is explained that you will be paid for the missions you do it felt very different from all other “earn with app” claims I have seen , SquadRun felt way more refined and systematic. I did have doubts if it actually works as good as it says but all that was cleared the moment I got my first mission approved.

3)What do you like the most about SquadRun?

Execution. Many apps try the idea of online work but SquadRun is unmatched in how well it executes this idea , the whole system is put together extremely well plus if there are any hiccups the support team is very good at getting things up and running.

4)Would you recommend this app to your friends/ relatives?

Yup! When I first suggested SquadRun to my cousins they were surprised at this concept of doing missions to earn using a phone , When they gave it a try they were just as amazed as I was when I first tried Squadrun myself!

5)If you do not mind sharing, How much do earn in an average from SquadRun?

I have been using SquadRun for almost a year now and while earnings depend on the amount of work you do each month I have seen a massive increase in missions and value per mission. On average I can make about ₹4000 per month on Squadrun which is great!

6)Lastly, how does Squadrun help you to fulfill your passion?

I  always wanted to have my own computer for learning new things but I never could afford one , However when I started working on SquadRun that changed! it helped me fulfill my wish of having my own computer and now I am learning Graphic Design and SquadRun is supporting me each day to reach that goal!

That’s the end of the interview and thanks for reading it, Hope this has inspired you and you have already taken the first step to earn online.
