    Hello, just had to leave a comment on the article about keeping our information safe. You state “avoid clicking on links in an email”….and yet…..in your newsletter for July…..you have clickable links!! I just find that ironic….should we…or shouldn’t we click…..hmm….??
    I have an older Chromebook….Acer C720, but I do love it. When my Windows 7 desktop is done, I’ll definitely replace it with a new Chromebook!

      Sue,

      You make a good point. The trick is to link hover on the link in the email and look at the bottom of the browser window to see where the link actually goes. If the link is shortened, use a link unshortener to de-obfuscate it.

    new to the chrome book world and i have to admit i dont like it at all. to much needed things are left out and i am old school i admit. you say i dont need any kind of protection but my daughter just downloaded something she went to “target” website and now this chromebook has the computererrorfound,xyz and is locking down her regular account. normally i would get malawarebyetes hitmanro or avg but its not letting me download anything because i dont need it! well obviously i do need it. so what advice can anyone give me to get the extra protection??
