Dear Readers,

Summer has finally arrived, and travel season brings in the possibility of cybercrime abroad. During your time away from home, it's important to practice cyber-hygiene so as to not fall victim to a cyberattack. That's why we've provided a few cybersecurity tips to keep in mind as you use your devices during your travels. 

In this edition of our newsletter, we've also highlighted a special news report that warns Windows 7 and earlier version users to update their operating systems immediately, as a BlueKeep vulnerability was recently discovered. BlueKeep can essentially allow a hacker to gain access to computers through an exploit within Microsoft's Remote Desktop Services.

Make sure to check out our blog posts as well, with this month's newsletter featuring an article on exciting new features coming to Apple's iOS 13 in the Fall. We've also included a piece on how overnight phone charges can actually shorten your device's battery lifespan.

We hope you enjoy this issue. Happy Reading!

5 Cybersecurity Tips for Your Travels
Traveling this Summer?

As you prepare to pack your bags for vacation, here are a few tips to keep in mind in order to keep your data secure while away from home.

1. Backup all your information
Backup all your photos, contacts, and other device data into the cloud before leaving for your trip in case your device gets lost or stolen.

2. Keep your devices locked
Remember to use strong passcodes on all your devices you take abroad with you.

3. Be cautious of public WiFi spots
Make sure your devices don't connect to any public WiFi spots automatically. When traveling, make sure the public WiFi you connect to is legitimate and has a secure login procedure. Avoid doing any sensitive activities like online banking while using public WiFi.

4. Use a VPN
Rather than using public WiFi, a VPN - or Virtual Private Network - provides safety and security as it encrypts your data while you're on the web. We recommend using NordVPN.

5. Disable Bluetooth auto-connect
Make certain your devices don't connect via Bluetooth automatically. Hackers can use this as an opening to access your device.
