Make this year your best yet with tech tips for a smooth transition.
When sharing a 10 by 15-foot living space with a roommate or two, maximizing capacity is key. Streamline your space and still access your important data by uploading your your music, digital photos, and other important documents to a cloud-based storage system. With 25 GB of space and synchronization across all your devices, Webroot® SecureAnywhere™ Complete is a great option. Tackle the task before your departure, and leave your bulky hard drive at home. Plus, easily share linked files with your friends without irritating email attachments.
Once you're set up and surfing the web, be wary of which items you choose to download. Special offers, games, and online cheat codes are all enticing, but cyber criminals often use this content to trick users into downloading executable programs. Protect your personal data, passwords, and account numbers by avoiding any suspicious files ending .exe, which can expose your machine to spyware and viruses.
It may seem like a hassle, but losing a term paper or project is far more unnerving than making a backup plan. Choose a secure, automatic backup system—like the one available with Webroot® SecureAnywhere™ Complete—and set it to save your files on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Your schoolwork and other files will be protected from damage or loss, and easily accessible from any web-connected device.
Protect your personal data, keep viruses at bay, and identify existing threats already on your computer with an up-to-date antivirus software scan. With Webroot® SecureAnywhere™ Antivirus, your machine is scanned automatically—no slow downloads or updates required. Not yet a Webroot customer? No problem! Just visit Webroot.com for a free system scan or 14-day product test drive.
A little preparation and planning can go a long way, so be sure you step on to campus with confidence. Get a leg up on protecting your data and devices so you can focus on collegiate issues of real consequence—like tracking down the weekend's best parties!
