Linda and Gluu have changed my life! My confidence level when handling my iPhone and iPad has soared, and I feel my personal data is much more secure. During these COVID times, anything which reduces anxiety is a godsend!

A Few Tips To Get You Started

No Tissues, Please

Never use tissues, paper towels, or course materials to clean any device screen. Gently polish the screen with a dry microfibre cloth instead. Use a damp cloth if needed.

Careful turning Wi-Fi Off

Turning Wi-Fi off to silence your device can make it impossible to use Find My services to locate that device should it be lost or stolen. Consider using the Do Not Disturb option instead.

Know What Wi-Fi To Trust

Only connect to public Wi-Fi networks with names you know—check with someone working at that location to be sure. Remember, entering a password to access a Wi-Fi network doesn't mean it's secure.

Check Your Email

To see if your email has been part of a data breach, go to haveibeenpwned.com—this trusted website will safely check. If your email has been part of a breach, check out our Digital Security course.

Update Your OS

Update the operating system (OS) on all of your devices. This is a necessary protection to keep cybercriminals away from your data. Not sure how to do that? Take one of our Essentials courses, search on Google for instructions, or reach out to your manufacturer for help.

Don't Charge to 100%

Avoid charging your mobile device to 100%. These batteries age faster if they are always charging. A rough guideline is to keep within the sweet spot of 40% and 80%-that means no charging overnight, every night.
