What are some good computer tricks that are not commonly known?

Answer on @Quora by @vvicigo to What are some good computer tricks that are not commonly known?

Answer by Adrian Barwicki:

Try to write piwo.to.jest.to! on FB chat…

If you write 'piwo.to.jest.to!' on FB messenger (desktop), FB will not send it. Instead, you will get a notification that a security check is required.

Try now to translate the phrase piwo.to.jest.to! into English. Google Translator will recognise that the phrase is written in Polish and give the English translation 'beer it is'.

However, if you had tried it yesterday, Facebook would have reacted slightly different.

It would inform you that your computer has been infected,

and trick you into downloading an anti-virus.

I have no explanation for it 🙂
