The satellite dish network internet Wi-Fi is supposed to be the best solution for getting internet in the rural areas.

Although its advantages are vast still security in the satellite communication is a significant concern.

There are many limitations. For example, power control, high link delay, and link availability are some of the standard security issues on the satellite internet.

Learn What “LockApp.exe” is on Windows 10

“LockApp.exe” is one of those hidden tasks that you don’t initially see unless you run the Windows Task Manager. The Windows Club (follow the source link below) will educate you on “LockApp.exe” and will provide steps to disable it.
