Our phones are a key source for, well, pretty much everything. We’re more connected to our smartphones now than ever before because they can help us out in almost any situation. Whether it’s catching a ride, connecting with your friends and family, ordering groceries or just looking at memes, your phone is there for you through it all. Your phone also contains lots of personal information, such as your photos and text message history.   Unfortunately, our reliance on our phones, combined with the personal information stored on them, makes them prime targets for cyber criminals. That’s why it’s important to learn how to keep them safe. We will cover topics including Phishing, Malicious Apps, Secured Wi-Fi, Multi-factor authentication, and more.

Learn what options you have with your devices and included technology,  including editing and sharing photos and music. Cloud services routinely back up their data so you should never lose your photos even if your own computer explodes. Discover how easy it is to manage your content and photos in the cloud. This session will focus on Apple iPhone technology and services. We’ll touch on Android and Google services too. We’ll do rapid fire questions and answers, so be prepared to fire away with your burning questions.
