I had to take a few weeks off for family reasons. I will be posting updates to this site come next week starting on the 9th of November.
Time certainly does fly. Not only in my personal life but just time in general. Here it is, almost time to do Thanksgiving and of course Christmas follows that and then the New Year. Seems to me and my wife, Nancy, that 2014 has just flown by.
The updates to sanfordsinternetsecurity will be an asset to you all in getting your computer and any other devices protected before you begin shopping online; we all know what happened to several large store chains this time last year with being hacked and its my mission to see that folks are protected as best as they can be before going to secured sites and putting in their personal details.
This is why I say to GET BACKUP NOW…AND GET ANTI-KEY-LOGGER PROTECTION…there is a link to both of these programs on the menu at the top of the pages listed as ‘programs I recommend’ and the top two or three would be backup from a trusted name, Carbonite and anti-key-logger software along with anti-virus that you can trust to keep you safe.
Now as I understand it, these offline businesses have taken measures to ensure a no repeat of last year but as I have explained before, we live in the digital age and that means there is someone falling victim to an Internet scam as we speak. Get yourself theft resistant as best you can now so you can relax when you shop online. Use the programs I recommend and you will be much safer online at all times.
Now when I say ‘theft resistant’, I mean just that. You are not theft proof and there is a difference. If you use the listed programs, you will be resistant to identity theft but not theft proof but close to it as long as you keep your machine clean and updated along with your other devices. I also recommend getting Lifelock, and I will provide a link to them next week. I have it and for all my accounts, its less than thirty dollars a month for peace of mind of my credit cards and online shopping since they monitor unusual behavior of their customers and will notify you of your details being used in not a way of your normal routine with over 740 billion checkpoints they monitor.
The world as we used to know it no longer exists. Now you must be wary of using your personal details everywhere; even at the ATM and other offline places.
Keep your credit cards safe and your personal details secure where only YOU know them and change your passwords often enough that you feel comfortable that no one can get into your stuff. A word about passwords, practice memory tasks and learn how to develop strong passwords by making a song out of them or some other way of remembering passwords. A lot of websites you register for are now allowing the use of characters like question marks, etc.
Take care of yourselves and each other and God Bless…Charles Sanford
