OneNote automatically saves your work through its notebook syncing feature.  To use this Microsoft note-taking app feature, you have to enable the "Sync automatically whenever there are changes" option through the File menu.  On a Windows PC, you can disable and re-enable OneNote's syncing feature at any time. Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories. OneNote, an organizational platform in Microsoft's Office Suite, offers an elegant solution to organizing your personal and professional notes. The program's default setting on PCs and Macs is to save your work as you type automatically, and it's one powerful way OneNote helps keep your life in order. If, however, your OneNote application is no longer saving as you go, you can re-enable the program's automatic sync function to ensure things are continuously saved. It's important to note that you can't enable or disable the auto-sync feature on OneNote for Macs, unlike PCs. So if you're using the note-taking app on a Mac, trust that your work will always autosave.  Here's how PC users can enable auto-saving in a few easy steps.  Check out the products mentioned in this article: Acer Chromebook 15 (From $179.99 at Walmart) Microsoft Office (From $149.99 at Best Buy) Windows 10 (From $139.99 at Best Buy) How to autosave on OneNote using the sync feature on PC 1. Launch the OneNote app for Windows. 2. Click "File" in the top left corner of your open OneNote window. 3. Select "View Sync Status." 4. Select "Sync automatically whenever there are changes."  5. Click "Close" to return to your notebook. If there have been changes since your last manual sync, the notebook will then automatically sync.

Samsung announced FDA clearance during today’s event.

It’s the second smartwatch in the US with this feature; the Apple Watch received clearance for a similar app in 2018. “I’m excited to announce that we have just received the US FDA clearance for Samsung’s ECG monitoring app,” said Samsung SVP Federico Casalegno in today’s Unpacked event. The clearance means that the watch can be used as a medical device. It’s not the same as full approval, which is a high standard only given to high-risk devices that go through extensive testing. It’s not clear when the app will be made available to US users. The existing Samsung... Continue reading…

Twitter was hacked in mid-July through a social engineering scheme that targeted employees, which resulted in world-famous people's accounts tweeting a bitcoin scam. The attack shows key areas of vulnerability for companies with remote workers, cybersecurity experts say.  Stopping social engineering scams that come in through email and giving cybersecurity pros better visibility into attacks are critical to stopping scams, experts say. Microsoft rolled out new tools Tuesday that address visibility into insider threats and other remote work issues. A former White House chief information officer says the Twitter hack should "chill us to the bone" – but worries that companies won't make the needed changes.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. After a scammer tricked a Twitter employee into providing access to high-level controls of the social network, it opened the door to an earth-shaking hack of the accounts of world-famous people in mid-July.  Few companies' computer systems are as public as Twitter's real-time feed, but many could be hacked in a similar way, experts say, due to a combination of factors intensified by remote work. While there are still some missing details and Twitter is not commenting beyond its blog post, here's how security experts say companies can protect themselves from a hack like Twitter's  – including new tools released Tuesday.   Don't click that odd link  Twitter, like many companies, has a remote workforce this summer, and isolated employees can be especially vulnerable to scams, experts say. Twitter wrote on its blog that "attackers targeted certain Twitter employees through a social engineering scheme."  That kind of attack often takes the shape of a phishing email that convinces the user to click on something that looks work-related, says Ed Bishop, chief technical officer of Tessian, a cybersecurity company that focuses on how people engage with email.  "Social engineering in a remote world is all around trying to think through the mindset of the user: What emails would they be expecting? What we're seeing is impersonation of services that are common with work-from-home situations," he said. For example, a remote worker might be more likely to click a link to a video conference that looks like it comes from a coworker, even if it's unfamiliar. "In the office you might ask a neighbor, 'Hey, are we using a new video call tool now?' But you can't do that now, so maybe you are more likely to click," he said.  When in doubt, don't click on a strange email or respond to it, Bishop says. Ask your coworkers or IT team about the email if it looks like it was sent internally. If an email feels suspicious but appears to come from a client, customer, or other contact, look up an email address for the supposed sender and start a new thread or contact them via their website. (Get more guidance from Tessian on helping your employees avoid phishing here.) "Remote workers are more vulnerable to phishing because we are all a little more unsuspecting and distracted at home," said Oren Falkowitz, cofounder of Area 1 Security. "Phishing comes in many forms, not only email." Beware the human element — and avoid it through education Twitter wrote that its hack was kicked off by "the intentional manipulation of people into performing certain actions and divulging confidential information."  The human element is often the key to major hacks, says Ryan Kalember, executive vice president of cybersecurity strategy at Proofpoint. "People continue to be the primary focus for threat actors. There are administrative tools on the backend at Twitter, and most organizations, that humans have to have access to and when they get compromised, it can result in fairly massive consequences." Even if a company has robust cybersecurity tools in place, the human beings that work there could still make the company vulnerable.  "Even the most sophisticated technologists, like those at Twitter, often overlook the human component of cybersecurity," says Anthony Grenga, vice president of cyber operations at IronNet. "Twitter employees had the ability to 'take over' accounts using an admin panel. Even though an insider may not have malicious intentions, opportunity – bribes, layoffs, conflict of opinions – may tip the scales."  And the employee may not even be aware they did anything wrong, Tessian's Bishop says. "You can absolutely be socially engineered and not have a clue that you've done anything.  How should companies avoid this hazard? Empower, educate, and empathize with employees. Companies should regularly train their employees on how to spot phishing emails and on other security hygiene practices — and make sure they're empowered to speak up if they sense anything fishy. A new empathetic approach is needed now, too, when dealing with remote employees, who are working away from the office and under the stress of a pandemic and economic downturn. New email tools and training may be needed that are tailored to this specific moment.  Attacks can move fast Another important aspect of the Twitter hack was the inability to spot it early. "We became aware of the attackers' action on Wednesday, and moved quickly to lock down and regain control of the compromised accounts," Twitter says in its blog. But they didn't move quick enough:  Hackers were shopping their access to Twitter controls on the darkweb in the days before hacked tweets spilled into the world from Barack Obama, Elon Musk, Joe Biden, and many others who were cranking out phony bitcoin tweets. B ut Twitter isn't alone in being a day late to discover a hack. Only 58% of companies can determine vulnerable assets within 24 hours following news of critical exploits, according to new research from the cybersecurity firm Balbix. "Cybersecurity teams are struggling with a lack of visibility into major risk areas," Balbix said, noting 89% of cybersecurity professionals identified phishing as one of the biggest security threats, yet, only 48% said they are able to continuously monitor such threats with cybersecurity tools. Insider threats – an employee who is knowingly or unknowingly assisting in a hack – can move very quickly, says Yonathan Klijnsma, a threat researcher at RiskIQ, a company that makes cloud-based cybersecurity software to detect threats. "When access to the account of a Twitter support member was gained, it gave the bad guys instant access to everything," he says.  IT teams managing remote workers may need new tools to find threats. Microsoft just released new products Tuesday to help achieve this: New tools and training   On Tuesday Microsoft rolled out new "insider risk management" tools to its Microsoft 365 users, including data-loss prevention for employees' laptops. "Remote work, while keeping employees healthy during this time, also increases the distractions end users face, such as shared home workspaces and remote learning for children," the software giant said on its blog. "The current environment has also significantly increased stressors such as potential job loss or safety concerns, creating the potential for increased inadvertent or malicious leaks."  Twitter vows it is "rolling out additional company-wide training to guard against social engineering tactics to supplement the training employees receive during onboarding and ongoing phishing exercises throughout the year."  Training may not be enough, says Chloé Messdaghi, vice president of strategy at Point3 Security, which tries to make cybersecurity risk personal to employees through discussions and empathy-based exercises. "This should reinforce for most companies that the phishing situation is really something that people aren't taking seriously enough. No matter how much training you do, the human element is still there and many people are still apathetic when it comes to the cybersecurity of their company because they've never been directly affected by it."  That apathy is dangerous, says Theresa Payton, former White House chief information officer and CEO of cybersecurity consultancy Fortalice Solutions, who says the Twitter hack "should chill us to the bone." This is not just a Twitter problem, Payton says. This should be a wakeup call for all companies, she urges: "We're all in this pandemic together. We ignored all the past wake up calls to our detriment. The question is, are we hitting snooze again?"Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: The rise and fall of Donald Trump's $365 million airline

We’re here to guide you through the coronavirus pandemic. Sign up to the Life newsletter for daily tips, advice, how-tos and escapism.We might be working from home, but that doesn’t mean we can’t burn out from stress. The feeling might be a little different from what we’re used to, though.Pop-up offices have appeared in bedrooms across the UK, so the boundaries between work and personal lives are increasingly blurred. It’s all too easy to check emails at 9pm because your laptop is within reach, or skip a lunch break because your head is deep in a project. And while you might not realise it, it’s also all too easy to burn out. “Working from home provides little opportunity for variety in your working day,” says Lucy Fuller, a UKCP-accredited psychotherapist. “There’s little chance for face-to-face, non-work social interaction and it comes with an intensity that would usually be broken up by travelling and dawdling on your way to work, in your lunch period and also going to meetings outside your place of work.“Our days are therefore becoming grey and our brains are burning and clouding from sitting in front of a screen for so long. We’re effectively trapped in this way of work without a definite end point to look forward to.”Psychotherapist Philip Karahassan, a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, doesn’t think people know they can burn out while working from home – “people usually see it as a more relaxing work day, where they can do work at their own pace” – which might mean they’re hurtling headfirst into it.Related... 16 Ways To Practise Self-Care That Cost Next To Nothing What actually is burnout?Last year, burnout was classified by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as an “occupational phenomenon”, legitimising the experiences of many who’ve fallen prey to the problem, also know as vital exhaustion.“Burnout is a syndrome conceptualised as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed,” said WHO. It’s characterised by three factors: feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion; increased mental distance or negativity surrounding your job; and reduced productivity.Left unchecked, it can cause physical problems too. One study linked the issue to atrial fibrillation (AF) – an irregular heartbeat – a major cause of stroke.So what at the signs of burnout at home?When working from home, feelings of burnout might be slightly different to what we experience while commuting and travelling for work, suggests Fuller. “We can experience a burnout that has less physical symptoms but manifests as more of a mental fuzziness,” she says.Those experiencing burnout at home might feel tired, confused and become forgetful. Other signs include frustration, anger and sadness.Burnout is different for everyone, so it’s important to check in with how you’re feeling and be aware if your feelings or behaviour change. If you do notice a change, don’t ignore it. Related... There's A Reason Why Socialising Feels So Exhausting Right Now Can I prevent it?Making changes in your work-life routine to prevent burnout is important because, as Fuller points out, when our mood starts to dip, it can be even harder to climb out of our low state of mind.Taking holiday is a good place to start – especially if you feel like the last few months have been a stressful blur. “Many people have taken their holiday leave, even though they have nowhere to go,” says Fuller. “This might sound mad and a waste of holiday leave but it makes good sense in terms of taking a break and doing something different for a few days away from the pressures of work.”If you can’t take annual leave, try to separate your work life from your home life as much as you can. Karahassan recommends setting boundaries as soon as possible. “Have a separate place for work, rest, discussion,” he says. “It can be as easy as having a corner of the room which is just for your work.”Related... How To Make The Most Of Your Annual Leave “Something that helped me is having a table for me to sit and do my work rather than the laptop on my legs,” he says. “It’s about making those small changes that go a long way as you are able create a work-life balance.”Set boundaries with the people around you, too. Make clear what times you’ll be working and when you can spend time with them – and stick to that routine.You might also want to think about how to create commute-type divides into your working day. “In normal circumstances we have a natural divide, which is your commute, but we now have to create our own transition,” says Fuller. “This might be doing exercise, putting music on that you love or taking a bath.“Whatever it is, use the activity to shake off your day and draw a line under your work to move into your leisure time.”What can I do if I feel burnt out already?First of all, stop and tell yourself you’re doing a great job and take a break outside of your home environment, suggests Karahassan. “Go for a walk, sit on a bench alone. If you can’t go out, go in the shower, wash your face, just do something for you. That five or 10-minute break can give you the space to reset and take control of your thoughts and feelings,” he says.“Turn off your work screen and indulge yourself in something that brings you joy,” adds Fuller. “You won’t regret it.”Avoid unhealthy vices like smoking and drinking and instead try to do things for your mental wellbeing – do some exercise, connect with loved ones, prioritise self-care, sign up to volunteer, and try to work smarter (not harder).Practising mindfulness can help you live in the moment rather than thinking about the endless Zoom meetings you’ve got coming up. And practising gratitude can promote feelings of positivity – write down three things that went well today, or for which you’re grateful.Breathing exercises are useful when things feel too much, so take five minutes out of your day, sit comfortably somewhere, and focus on your breath. There are a number of deep breathing apps you can download on your phone to help guide you, or you can find some helpful breathing exercises here.And if none of this helps and your stress is causing you distress, speak to your GP who can offer psychological support. You can refer yourself for psychological therapy through the NHS IAPT service. Related...
