Hamza Tariq is a Tech Content Editor at TechLapse. He specializes in software, apps, and services, but his expertise particularly shines in the realms of virtual private networks (VPNs) and antivirus solutions.

Before joining Tech Lapse, he was a Staff Writer at MakeUseOf where he mainly wrote about Apple products (macOS and iOS). Other than that, he’s also written content in the crypto and NFT space for various blogs and companies including Phemex.

His primary objective with writing at Tech Lapse is always to help people take more control of their online data and keep their presence on the web safe.

Hamza has a Master's in Business Analytics from the University of Exeter, but there's nothing more he enjoys than crafting meaningful content and testing new (and sometimes old) software. When he's not working, you'll find him playing Animal Crossing on his Nintendo Switch (a man's got to relax), reading books, or watching arthouse movies.
