Cyber security for back to school

Techstination feature for Tuesday, August 23, 2022

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     With kids heading back to school…maybe with new mobile devices or computers…some advice for parents about security.   Emma McGowan is a privacy and security advocate for Avast and she says kids…even preschoolers….need help in safely navigating the online world.  One step is an investment in a cybersecurity solution ..

“We have one called Avast One.  It’s an all in one deal, it covers cybersecurity, privacy issues, it does encryption.  It’s really a great system.   And then, with that, also just talking to your kids.  Setting some clear boundaries and rules around what we click on, what we look at, things like that.”

The company also has free antivirus software for consumers…at premium protection for up to five devices priced at about fifty dollars a year.
