With spring upon us, it’s a great time to start thinking about home safety tips and upgrades. Here are a few digital ways you can easily upgrade your home to make it safer:
• Protecting the Computer – Do you have the latest software to help prevent viruses, malware and hackers? It is easy economical to download the latest tools to help protect all your digital assets.
• Protect Your Digital Footprint – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Linked-In and a host of other social networks are great to connect with friends and family, but they also can be a way for unwanted attention. Check your privacy settings to ensure your personal information is not falling into the wrong hands.
• Protect Your Passwords – Are you one of those people that write down all their passwords next to your computer? A password app can keep all those valuable codes safe and secure, as well as easily accessible on your smartphone.
• Protect Your Front Door – You can spend thousands of dollars on home security systems, but before you invest that kind of money, a great way to test out home monitoring is with the VTech’s Video Doorbell cordless phone system (MSRP: $119.95). It provides homeowners a better way to approach surprise visitors when they come to the door, using an instant photo sent to the phone handset and optional streaming video to screen visitors.
