Here’s what we’ll learn
Tightening your computer security: In this module I’d like to walk you through a pre-flight check before we head back onto the internet. In a lot of cases, I often see machines that are already infected, or have too much access enabled that would easily facilitate a virus infection. I’ll walk you through how to do this on both a Mac and PC. We’ll do a quick checkup to make sure your browser is configured for safe and convenient browsing. I’ll guide you with a simple tool that will allow you to find out if you’re already hacked and being spied on hackers or by someone you already know like a crazy ex-boyfriend or girlfriend. And finally, I’ll also walk you through step-by-step how to create an unbreakable password which will be required going forward for all your online activity. No more weak John123 passwords YEEEEEEESSSSSSSS!!!
Staying Safe Online: In the staying safe online module, I’ll explain why and how hackers and scammers are targeting and tricking you into clicking on stuff you shouldn’t be. I’ll teach you about how Internet predators groom children and who the perfect victims are. I’ll even show you how to search for information about yourself that you didn’t even know existed.
