Quick Safety Tips

Most of these tips are common sense...for desktop and even more so for mobile technology.

  • Be aware of what you are doing, don't just automatically click and OK every app request
  • Install the proper app to remotely wipe your tablet - just in case
  • Use strong passwords
  • Download only from trusted resources (iTunes, Google Play and Windows Store)
  • Apps sometimes demand access they shouldn't have - watch out for that
  • We are more easily distracted with mobile devices, so try to pay more attention
