I told you all a few blog posts ago I would share more tips as I had them to share. I do now. Here they are in no particular order:
- Turn off your phone at last once a week to help keep hackers from figuring out your password/code. This is not my tip. It came from a cyber security expert interviewed on my local news. I imagine this applies to tablets/iPads/MP3 players/iPods as well. I turn my phone off nightly unless there is a need not to for better sleep, but this tip is an added reason to do so.
The articles are as follows:
The second article I listed gives me the most clarity and comfort I have found in all the articles I read, but it does not give step by step instructions for disabling your iCloud photo backup if you want. The step by step instructions to-do so are below:
i. Go to settings and tap your name
ii. Find iCloud on the menu and tap it
iii. Once in the iCloud menu: you’ll be able to choose what, if anything, you want iCloud to keep a record of going forward. I toggled off/turned off everything because my privacy is not something I am to willing compromise. What I decide to share and with whom should ALWAYS be my choice and now it is again.
As always with these particular blog posts: if/when I have more digital/online safety tips to share with all of you, I will share them; because I consider these posts to be part of my self-care journey as well as helpful and practical for my readers.
