Samsung touchscreens on Android gives unexpected results by pretending to be a computer touchpad. <p>The <code>hover</code> <code>@media</code> feature query lets you check if a device’s primary input device supports hovering interactive elements. It became part of the web platform as of CSS Media Queries Level 4. The <code>hover: hover</code> query should match on devices with a mouse cursor (e.g. a touchpad), and <code>hover: none</code> should match touchscreens (mobile devices).

The update breaks the keyboard app compatibility with many apps. <p>In my experience, text input using the software keyboard on Android has always had some quirks and issues. However, all text entry and editing of more than a couple of sentences became nearly impossible after my Samsung Galaxy S10e received the One UI 4.0 update (better known as Android 12).

However, you can minimize the data it shares with Samsung. <p>Samsung customers have likely been prompted by their devices to opt into the Samsung Customization Service (SCS). The prompt doesn’t explain what SCS does beyond linking you to its longwinded privacy policy. I was uncomfortable turning it on without knowing more about it, so I read the privacy policy. Yikes.

That’s unclear, if you’ve got the Samsung Digital Wellbeing app. <p>Bedtime mode on Android guides you towards better sleep habits by muting notifications and making your phone less interesting. Samsung’s take on the feature says it will mute all sounds and alerts, but that isn’t the whole story.

You can also use one of the many forks for Android, iOS, Linux, MacOS, and other operating systems. KeePass has created the defacto standard for encrypted password vault/database files (<code>.kdbx</code>).
