    We all know that as users of technology devices and websites, we are vulnerable to data hacks, scammers, and prolific advertising. Sometimes ads and emails come in so targeted to our personal lives we think someone has read our mind. While there is no way to perfectly guard our privacy and personal data, we CAN do things that tighten our security.

We will take a look at settings on your Apple and Android devices as well your accounts on Amazon, Google, Facebook and Venmo.
