Pakistan is the fourth largest online working community in the world. and most of the freelancers from Pakistan do face payment and transaction problems.

We all know there is no perfect way to receive our payments out-side the freelancing platforms but that’s not true 😀

Today in this article I’m going to share and help you with such useful information which is going to blow your mind. because most of us think Pakistan can’t accept international payments unless we have someone out-side Pakistan to help us opening foreign bank accounts and business for verification.

I have been running my software company for 7 years and I never faced payment issues because I use to always search for solutions and guess what? I found amazing payment solutions which can help you too to receive your funds directly from your employers without any middle-men.

Some of these payment solutions are not only going to help you with payments but also do provide you the option to manage your transactions in your inventory and provide you white-label solution to manage your items products or services within the account. and once your items information is filled you can share the link with your clients to get paid directly.

So without wasting any further time let’s dig-into solution.

Here is the list of payment gateways which we are going to explore today.

01. Paddle
02. Fastspring
03. Payproglobal
04. 2checkout

Consider given them try it worth to work with them. we have worked with them for more then 3 months but due to some technical disagreements we did not continued to work anymore.

03. Payproglobal

Payproglobal is the complete cloud SAAS app payments solution. they offer license to connect with your platform and automate your sales if you sell digital products.

payproglobal also payout after 30 days but the biggest issue with them is they charge tax % much higher then other gateways. and if you have huge sales they require manual verification from your clients after making the payment. this cause a lot of disturbance with your clients. and because the gateways is not well famous most client afraid to use it for payments.

But the backend system they do offer is remarkable the analytics and tools is super easy to handle. payproglobal also offers you custom checkout theme which help your to close more sales by inspiring your clients on checkout.

2checkout is the well-known payment gateway and I included this just because in case if you are into ecom business not in the technical side. 2checkout will be your best options to get your payments after the delivery of your physical goods.

the verification process with 2checkout is little painful and due to 3rd word country. they put more pressure on clients and also require some legal evidence too to activate your production account.

Pakistan added to Amazon Sellers’ List

Adviser to the Prime Minister on Commerce and Investment Abdul Razak Dawood said that Pakistan would be added to Amazon’s list of sellers within a few days. — Reuters/File

Adviser to the Prime Minister on Commerce and Investment Abdul Razak Dawood said on Thursday that Pakistan would be added to e-commerce giant Amazon’s sellers list within the next few days.

“We have finally made it. We have been engaged with Amazon since last year and now it’s happening. It is a great opportunity for our youth, small and medium enterprises and women entrepreneurs,” he said.

“An important milestone of the e-commerce policy has been achieved through teamwork by many people across the globe,” he said.

Pakistan has remained off Amazon’s list of sellers despite the company’s presence in neighbouring India. Pakistani retailers wishing to sell their products on the marketplace would register their companies from other countries, in an effort to bypass Pakistan.

However, after being added to the list, Pakistani merchants will be able to sell their products on the platform with ease. But this does not mean much for Pakistani consumers; it will mostly benefit Pakistan-based merchants that want to sell their products abroad.

Meanwhile, Special Assistant to the PM on Political Information Dr Shahbaz Gill said that the current government had achieved something that had not been achieved during the last 10 years of the country’s history.

“Amazon has included Pakistan in its list of sellers. With this development, Pakistan has now joined the international market. This will result in billions in investment and produce employment opportunities. Thank you Imran Khan,” he said.

Omar Gajial, former senior executive of Amazon, shared with the participants what sort of opportunities will be available to Pakistani business to sell their products on Amazon and how they can derive maximum benefit from this opportunity once Amazon opens its Seller Registration for Pakistan.

According to TechJuice.pk, after Pakistan’s addition to Amazon approved selling countries, accounts can be made using Pakistani details.

“This milestone will drastically change the game and result in a new era of economic growth as more sellers will visit the platform than ever before,” read a post on the website.

A webinar was also organized by the Consulate General of Pakistan, Los Angeles and the Ministry of Commerce of Pakistan with senior executives of a few Pakistani companies.

Top Deepfake Apps and Websites You Can Try

What is deepfake AI (deep fake)

Deep fake (also spelled deepfake) is a type of artificial intelligence used to create convincing images, audio, and video hoaxes. The term, which describes both the technology and the resulting bogus content, is a portmanteau of deep learning and fake.

A person in an existing image or video is replaced with someone else’s likeness. While the act of faking content is not new, deepfakes leverage powerful techniques from machine learning and artificial intelligence to manipulate or generate visual and audio content with a high potential to deceive. The main machine learning methods used to create deepfakes are based on deep learning and involve training generative neural network architectures, such as autoencoders or generative adversarial networks (GANs)

Best Deepfake Apps and Websites in 2021

1. Zao

Zao is the latest app that has gone viral in China for its ingenious capability to create deepfake videos within seconds. You can choose a video clip from its library which includes scenes from Chinese drama series, Big Bang Theory, popular Hollywood movies, and more. Within a few seconds, Zao creates a seemingly authentic deepfake video that frankly looks natural and indistinguishable from the original video. The surprising bit is that the app takes only a few seconds, unlike powerful computers which can take hours to train Generative Adversarial Network responsible for creating deepfake video.

Regarding availability, Zao app is only released in China for both Android and iOS users. You can sideload the app on Android, but can’t use it because Zao requires a Chinese phone number for signing up. However, we managed to test the Zao app in India and it does work for the most part. In our testing, we found that on Indian faces, it does not look as natural as you would expect. It might be because Zao is mostly trained on Chinese facial data. Nevertheless, Zao is an interesting app and you can try it once it becomes available to everyone.

Note: The company behind Zao app had earlier mentioned in the user agreement that they can reuse imagery created on its app for all purposes. However, after heavy criticism, they retracted the controversial passage. Nevertheless, if you are concerned about your privacy, we advise you to not use the app at all.

InstallAndroid / iOS – Free

 

2. Deepfakes web β

Deepfakes web β is a web service that lets you create deepfake videos on the web. It uses Deep learning to absorb the various complexities of face data. Deepfakes web β can take up to 4 hours to learn and train from video and images whereas it takes another 30 minutes to swap the faces using the trained model.

Even though it uses powerful GPU on the cloud, it can take hours to render all the data. It goes on to show that creating deepfake video is no child’s play and seeing Zao do it within seconds is truly game-changing. Anyway, if you want to try deepfake video for research in computer vision, you can go for Deepfakes web β.

3. Wombo

If you’ve not been living under a rock, it is likely that you have already seen some clips from Wombo. For those unaware, Wombo is a lip-syncing app that lets you transform yourself or others into a singing face. You can choose from among 15 songs and make the character sing that song, all from a single image. This app is all the rage right now, taking over Reels and TikTok across the world.

Install: Android / iOS (Free, in-app purchases)

4. Reface

You might recall one of our reports where we showcased a deepfake app named Doublicat to help you make fun GIF memes. Well, the developers of Doublicat have renamed the app to Reface, after Reface AI. Reface AI is the Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) behind the scenes. To use the app, all you need to do is capture your photo and then choose the gif that you want to use.

In a few seconds, the app will superimpose your face on the gif. It doesn’t work perfectly and the face superimposition will depend on the symmetry of your face and the gif you are using. That said, there are so many gifs on the internet that you will always have options. This can be your personalized gif creator that you can use to impress your friends.

InstallAndroid / iOS – Free (in-app purchases)

5. MyHeritage

Another viral deepfake app you should try out is called MyHeritage. The app’s Deep Nostalgia feature gained popularity among social media users as it lets you animate old photos. To use the service, all you have to do is upload an image and press the animate button.

In a few seconds, you get an animated version of the image with the face, eyes, and mouth moving like it’s straight out of The Daily Prophet magical newspaper from Harry Potter. You can check out the output image right here:

Install: Android / iOS / Website (Free)

6. DeepFaceLab

DeepFaceLab is a Windows program that allows you to create deepfake videos. It’s primarily built for researchers and students of computer vision. However, if you want to learn about deepfake videos, you can definitely try this tool. It uses machine learning and human image synthesis to replace faces in videos.

Since DeepFaceLab is an advanced tool mostly for researchers, the interface is not user-friendly and you will have to learn its usage from the documentation. Again, it goes without saying that you need a powerful PC with a dedicated high-end GPU. Simply put, if you are a student specializing in computer vision, DeepFaceLab can be a great tool to understand deepfake videos.

7. Deep Art

Deep Art is another app which went viral a few weeks ago. It’s not a deepfake video app, however, it can create deepfake images based on art, ancient structures, and paintings. While there are many apps that have similar features, the unique part about Deep Art is that it uses AI to turn any photo into an artwork.

The highly advanced algorithm is said to have inspired by the human brain and uses stylistic elements of popular artworks to recreate artistic images. Deep Art is trained by the works of various artists which include Van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Picasso, and more. And the good part is that there is no privacy issue with this app. If you want to try something artsy, Deep Art is the best app to try.

Install: Android / iOS — (Free, in-app purchases)

8. Face Swap Live

Face Swap is not entirely a deepfake app, but it does let you switch faces with your friend or a photo in videos. You can record videos, put stickers, take photos and directly post on social media. What I like about this app is that, unlike other face swap apps, it’s not that static and there is some degree of movement on the face. There are also 3D effects, interactive face warping with several masks and effects. All in all, if you are looking for a deepfake app, Face Swap Live can be a great Zao alternative for the time being.

Install: Android (Free), iOS ($0.99)

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What software is used for Ddeepfakes?

Deepfakes are created using artificial intelligence and machine learning software. All the apps mentioned on this list use built-in AI and ML software to create deepfake videos and photos.

Q. Who invented deepfake?

According to Wikipedia, the word Deepfake originated in 2017 from a Reddit user named “deepfakes”. That said, no one man can claim Deepfake’s invention. The work done in computer vision, AI, and ML made it feasible for researchers and armatures to create deepfakes. There’s no single person who invented this.

Q. How dangerous is deepfake?

Deepfake is really dangerous for society. Since most online users believe stuff without verifying them, deepfake poses a huge threat to the truth. That being said, the technology is not there to convincingly fool anyone right now. It will be there in a few years and both governments and tech giants will have to work together to tackle this problem.

Q. Is deepfake AI?

Yes, deepfake apps and websites use AI, ML, and machine vision to create deepfakes.

Q. Is it illegal to make deepfake videos?

No, it’s not illegal to create deepfake videos as long as you are explicitly depicting them as deepfake videos and not using them for disingenuously misleading people.

The Best Deepfake Apps and Websites Chosen For You

So that was our list of 8 best deepfake apps and websites available right now. While there are a few services offering deepfake videos, it takes a painfully long time to render and create the final video. Nevertheless, if you are interested in learning about machine learning and how the faces are swapped, you can definitely go for the advanced tools. If you enjoyed this article, you should also check out our list of fun websites to pass time. You will find many gems there. Anyway, that is all from our side. If you found our article informative, do comment down below and let us know.

deepfake software for pc

The deepfake software uses the face swapping AI called RefaceAI to superimpose your face on GIFs and images
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/deepfake-software-for-pc/ffibhmnkiddbnkhkonfdhjooajncdmod
The deepfake software uses the face swapping AI called RefaceAI to superimpose your face on GIFs and images. Creating a deepfake image in REFACE is very simple.  The app will then create a personalized image with your face on it. The accuracy of the result will depend on your face symmetry and the GIF you're using.

After lurking for several weeks in Reddit’s deepfake community, I decided to see how easy it was to create a (safe for work, nonpornographic) deepfake using my own face.

I started by downloading FakeApp and enlisting two technical experts to help me. The first was Mark McKeague, a colleague in The New York Times’s research and development department. The second was a deepfake creator I found through Reddit, who goes by the nickname Derpfakes.

Because of the controversial nature of deepfakes, Derpfakes would not give his or her real name. Derpfakes started posting deepfake videos on YouTube a few weeks ago, specializing in humorous offerings like Nicolas Cage playing Superman. The account has also posted some how-to videos on deepfake creation.

What I learned is that making a deepfake isn’t simple. But it’s not rocket science, either.

To get more speed, Mark and I used a remote server rented through Google Cloud Platform. It provided enough processing power to cut the time frame down to hours, rather than the days or weeks it might take on my laptop.

Microblogging Site Twitter’s Services Affected Worldwide

Users around the world are having difficulty accessing the microblogging site Twitter.

Twitter released a statement from its official account stating that “Tweets may not be loading for some of you.”

“We’re working on fixing a problem and you’ll be back on the timeline soon,” the tweet read.

According to the administration, work is underway on this technical glitch which will be rectified soon.

As Twitter services were affected, users around the world had difficulty loading their timelines and tweeting.

Twitter Down is currently one of the top trends on Twitter around the world, including in Pakistan.

Yesterday, WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Telegram services were shut down for 4 hours in Pakistan.

Telegram allows up to 2GB to send photos, videos

Instant messaging app Telegram has made its users’ lives easier as they can now share their images and videos on the platform in their original size.

“You can send photos and videos at their full quality and size – up to 2 GB per file,” it said in a tweet.

“Open the attachment menu, select File, and then pick your pictures to send them without compression,” it added.

How you can mute chats Telegram

If you get constant messages on Telegram and want to stop notifications from popping up on your phone, the instant messaging app has an option that you can use.

According to Telegram, you can select chats on Android or swipe on iOS to quickly enable or disable notifications. “Each platform also has several temporary mute options, in case you just need a little quiet time,” the app said.

Android users can also swipe to mute chats by changing their swipe gesture in Settings > Chat Settings, the messaging app added.

WhatsApp going to roll out very useful feature for iOS, Android

The Facebook-owned messaging app WhatsApp is going to introduce a new feature that will allow the migration of chat history between iOS and Android mobile operating systems in a future update.

The announcement regarding the multi-device feature was made on a website, WABetaInfo, that hinted at the possibility to migrate chat history to a different WhatsApp platform in a future update.

It will allow the usage of WhatsApp account on multiple devices at the same time.


The development of the feature takes a long time because it will totally change the experience on WhatsApp, and a lot of things have been rewritten in order to be compatible with multi-device.


The feature will also allow WhatsApp Web (including Portal) to be used without an internet connection on the device, at first. In a future update, WhatsApp will allow linking other iOS and Android mobile devices.

It was learnt that the future update for iOS and Android will bring the solution of this issue as well as it will enable the possibility to migrate your chat history. The website also provided a screenshot of the possible update which showed the option of WhatsApp chat migration to Andriod from iOS.

The post read that it is obvious that WhatsApp will also allow the opposite way.

When the user tries to link a device having a different operating system to his WhatsApp account, it’s always needed to update to the latest WhatsApp update available on the App Store or TestFlight, in order to avoid any compatibility error with the Android version.

However, the release date of the feature was not available yet.

Although, there are some tools around the web that might allow the chat history migration but they are not really recommended and, as for modified WhatsApp versions, they aren’t allowed because they violate the messaging app’s Terms of Service.

 

How to check if your Facebook account was breached? Massive record leak

Hundreds of millions of Facebook records including the personal information of users have been leaked by hackers in a major setback to the social media giant which was revealed by cybersecurity experts.

The hackers have published full names, birthdays, phone numbers and their location of 533 million Facebook users on April 3, however, Facebook said the massive leak stems from an issue in 2019, which has since been fixed.

On April 4, a cyber researcher Dave Walker tweeted, “Regarding the #FacebookLeak, of the 533M people in the leak – the irony is that Mark Zuckerberg is regrettably included in the leak as well.” He added, “If journalists are struggling to get a statement from @facebook, maybe just give him a call, from the tel in the leak?”

“All 533,000,000 Facebook records were just leaked for free. This means that if you have a Facebook account, it is extremely likely the phone number used for the account was leaked. I have yet to see Facebook acknowledging this absolute negligence of your data,” 7 News quoted the tweet of Alon Gal, the co-founder of a cybercrime intelligence firm Hudson Rock.

How to check if your Facebook account was breached?

A third-party website, haveibeenpwned.com, has made it simple to check by inputting your email. The website will check if your email was among those stolen.

It emerged that only 2.5 million emails were found among the stolen data of 533 million Facebook accounts which indicated that a user got less than a half per cent chance of showing up on that website, even though having about a 20 per cent chance of being hacked if having a Facebook account.

Troy Hunt, the creator of the website and a security expert said on Twitter that he was examining whether to add phone numbers.

“The primary value of the data is the association of phone numbers to identities; whilst each record included phone, only 2.5 million contained an email address,” Hunt’s website said.

The records stolen during the 2019 data breach are still valuable for hackers and cybercriminals like those who engage in identity theft.

Snack Video Hits 100M Downloads

After TikTok got banned for the second time in Pakistan, another app similar to ByteDance’s one, “Snack Video” is getting the utmost advantage.

Snack Video is the newest party for short funny videos! You can find the most exciting, funny, magic videos on Snack Video. All you have to do is watch, engage with what you like, skip what you don’t, and you’ll find an endless stream of short videos.

The application is trending on the Google play store since late Thursday and more than 100 million people downloaded it in no time.

To grab people’s attention, Snack Video developers have hired popular Pakistani TikTokers.

Snack Video is a social network (similar to TikTok) that lets you create and watch a bunch of short videos that you can share with other users.

It should be mentioned here that Snack Video was launched by Kuaishou Technology in 2020. It has Chinese roots. Snack Video calls itself a global competitor of TikTok, owned by ByteDance.
