How to Find Your New Kenya Power Account Number

Starting November 2017, Kenya Power began migrating customers to a new customer management system. Consequently, customers were allocated new account numbers. This has led to many customers failing to find out their bills in time and getting error messages when they send a bill query to Kenya Power's 95551 number using their old account number.

To find your new Kenya Power Account number, follow the instructions below:

Instructions to find your new Kenya Power account number

  1. Create a new message and type "Status" followed by old account number e.g. "Status7654321". Do not send the suffix. For example, if your old account number is 7654321-01, do not include the -01 in the message. 
  2. Send this to the number 95551.
  3. After a few minutes, you will get a text message showing you your new account number.
  4. To find out your bill, send the new account number to 95551

How to Clear an e48-32 GoTV Error Code

An e48-32 GoTv error code is purely a signal quality and/or strength problem. To clear this error, follow the instructions below.

Instructions to Clear an e48-32 GoTv Error

  1. If your aerial position has not changed, the first thing you need to do is to make sure it is firmly fixed in RF IN port. A loose connection can give you sleepless nights yet it is a simple issue to fix.
  2. Once you confirm the aerial is firmly fixed, check your signal quality by using your remote to navigate to Menu >> Advanced Settings >> Signal Information. For a good connection, the signal readings should be as follows:
    • Signal Strength - over 90%
    • Signal Quality - over 90%
  3. If the signal quality is below the above levels, you may need to check your aerial cable for damage or reposition it higher. Adjust your aerial until both strength and quality are above 90%. 
  4. Go back to Menu >> Advanced Settings >> Installation and press Reset. This will reset your decoder.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions once the decoder restarts. 
  6. If you have an active antenna, change the Active Antenna settings to ON. An active antenna is a type of aerial that comes with active electronic parts such as transistors, as opposed to regular antennas which only come with metal rods, capacitors and inductors. An active antenna amplifies the signal. It is important to choose the right setting.
  7. Next, the decoder will proceed and scan for the channels and complete within a few minutes. 
  8. Check to see that the e48-32 GoTv error code has cleared. 

gotv error reset
my gotv has no signal
gotv error e66-32
gotv no channels found
gotv antenna power
e48-32 no signal sun direct

How To Avoid a Speed Gun

Speed guns have become a common occurrence with many drivers finding themselves on the wrong side of the law and paying heavy traffic fines. But, did you know there is a way to avoid getting caught by a speed gun?

This is possible by using a radar speed gun detector. These are small devices that detect the presence of radars, used by Kenyan police to catch cars driving over the speed-limit.

And, they are quite cheap. Jumia has a radar speed gun detector retailing for less than Kshs 2, 000.

The UNIVERSAL V7 360 Degrees 16 Band Scanning LED Radar Detector Car Speed Testing System has a number of features, namely:

  • Detect any stable or mobile radar speed monitor ahead.
  • Easy installation and control, available for independent installation and use.
  • Full 16 bands receiver.
  • Supports K and KA radar frequencies.
  • The interface has a Mini USB and DC charging port
  • Comes with a LED display
  • Waterproof

The system is only 3.82 x 2.4 x 1.34 inches and weighs a mere 0.2 kgs which makes it easy to fix on the dashboard.

Whatsapp Launches Share Live Location

Whatsapp has launched a new feature that allows you to share your location in real-time with family or friends. Whether you're meeting up with friends, letting loved ones know you're safe, or sharing your commute, Live Location is a simple and secure way to let people know where you are. This end-to-end encrypted feature lets you control who you share with and for how long. You can choose to stop sharing at any time or let the Live Location timer simply expire.

How Whatsapp Live Location Works

  • Open a chat with the person or group you want to share with.
  • Under "Location" in the attach button, there's a new option to "Share Live Location."
  • Choose how long you want to share and tap send.
  • Each person in the chat will be able to see your real-time location on a map. And if more than one person shares their Live Location in the group, all locations will be visible on the same map.

Live Location is available on both Android and iPhone and will be rolling out in the app in the coming weeks.

How To Get Someone's Gmail Password Without The User Knowing

Let’s me begin by dispensing off with why you would want to get someone’s Gmail password in the first place. Well, there are a number of valid reasons that would make you want to get someone's Gmail password. These include:
  • Child monitoring – most people seeking information on how to get someone's Gmail password happen to be parents. They will usually be concerned with the online activities of their children and will want to have a means to know who their children are interacting with via email. As you know, there are all sorts of crooks, kooks, and perverts online. Anytime your child goes online, they run the risk of interacting with human traffickers, child molesters and other kinds of criminals. So, where children are concerned there is no such thing as being too paranoid. It isn’t surprising that most Internet searches for the terms “how to get Gmail password”, “how to get someone's Gmail password” and “how to get someones Gmail password without resetting” are conducted by parents. 
  • Spouses – the second category of people that want access someone's Gmail account are spouses. Spousal infidelity is on the rise. A recent study conducted in the US revealed that in over a third of marriages, one or both spouses admitted to infidelity. Another study in the UK reveals that almost half of UK males admit to having been unfaithful at least once. Clearly, married people have a reason to worry about their spouse’s late nights at the computer. 
  • Employers – employers also worry about the online activities of their employees. They worry about corporate espionage and whether the employee is stealing from them. One of the ways to find out what their employees are up to, the legality notwithstanding, is to get access to their Gmail accounts and see who they’ve been communicating with. 

Methods to Hack a Gmail Account

There are numerous methods one can use to get a Gmail password. Here, I will highlight some of the most popular and effective.

How To Get a Gmail Password With The Phishing Method

Phishing is a technique where the hacker masquerades as the real thing. For example, the hacker creates a page that looks and feels like the Gmail login page and through some nifty coding, makes it present itself in the browser once the computer user type's in the URL "”. The user then enters their Gmail username and password. But, upon clicking “Enter” the login credentials are immediately sent clandestinely to the hacker. The user then gets an error message such as “please check your Internet connection” and is then redirected to the correct login page to avoid suspicion.

How To Get a Gmail Password Using a Keylogger

A keylogger is a computer program logs the keystrokes typed on the keyboard and sends them to a remote server or stores them in a local file which can later be retrieved by the hacker. Once a keylogger is installed on the target computer, all attacker needs to do is check the logs to identify the Gmail username and password.

How To Get a Gmail Password Via Social Engineering

Social engineering is a euphemism for identity theft. It involves getting access to personal information which can then be used to reset a Gmail account. Unless a Gmail account has extra security features setup such as 2-step verification and phone notifications, all you would normally need to do to reset the password is answer a number of security questions. These security questions include questions like "what was the make of your first car?” and “where did you go for your honeymoon?" These are intensely personal. But, finding out this information about someone can potentially give you the means to reset their Gmail account password.

How to Get a Gmail Password Using a Browser Extension Gmail Hacker

A browser extension Gmail hack is a technique where a legitimate browser extension is compromised and the capability to “sniff” keystrokes is introduced. The most common way to achieve this is to gain access to a developer’s computer and then access the extension/addon files. Once you get into the extension files, you only need to introduce the code, update the extension and push it out to users. Many Chrome extensions have been hacked this way in the recent past with users being duped into handing over their Gmail passwords. Examples of such extensions include Chrome’s Web Developer and CopyFish.

How To Get a Gmail Password by Hacking Other Sites

It is also possible to find out someone's Gmail password by getting access to another site where the target has an account. It is a fact that most people use the same password across many different sites. So, if Facebook is easier to get into, then it is likely that the Facebook password is also the Gmail password.

How To Get a Gmail Password with a Spy Application

Unfortunately, with the exception of social engineering, all the methods mentioned above are quite technical in nature. Unless you have a technical background or are a tech enthusiast, you may find the learning curve too steep for your liking. In such a case, I recommend using a spy application that can be installed on a target’s phone. FlexiSPY is one such app. Once installed on the target phone, it secretly logs not just Gmail emails, but text messages, social media messages, phone calls, photos, GPS location and much more. The app is completely hidden from the interface and completely undetectable by the user. These logs and uploaded to a remote server which can be accessed by the account owner from any other computer or phone. Installation is a simple five-minute process and you are good to go. FlexiSPY is compatible with both Android and iPhone.

Intercepting personal communications is illegal in Kenya and many other jurisdictions. The content provided above is for informational purposes only AND NOT an endorsement of criminal activity.
