-- Everybody welcome to -- take MIL level in an effort -- -- today so we're gonna get started its kids to season right to go shopping but these days.
Let's go to the -- brick and mortar but a lot of -- go online click click click and get everything done so we're doing it online of course we're using her cell phones.
More than ever which means that we're putting ourselves at risk for having identity stolen that's that's -- -- can happen over the Internet.
And of course you subject yourself -- being fraud but we have some great -- today help this walk through that Javon.
McDermott is here and JR Smith they're both here to help consumers help us all learn how to protect yourself occupied you alert the chief policy officer over -- -- -- technology.
And technologies and JR you're the CEO.
Over at ABC VG technologies.
Good to see both of you think it's.
So -- and you know what we're gonna do is we -- guys were great you brought a list of do you think don't you people so would we go over that list with you on to read off the list and I'll come back have you guys explain what that all beings -- right so first of all -- we'll talk about this how to protect.
Your personal data online you set your FaceBook privacy settings.
Limit or block cookies used passwords effectively and organized them look for telltale signs of cell phone hacking.
And install a simple to use security solution so that we're gonna break things down one by once upon us -- review.
Set your FaceBook privacy settings I think.
One of the most important things that people -- -- soon realized that when they're posting something to FaceBook it could be public.
It could be visible to everybody so one of the important things is to go into settings go to into the privacy section and make sure that your posts are invisible people didn't want them to be visible to.
So making sure that you are linking things that you know your friends can see what -- linking but not necessarily everybody who just looks like the FaceBook profile consider -- and so it's important to make sure that you take a look at those and and that you enable them and that you lock them down so that you're not just broadcasting corporation have.
-- is that really saved because again he agrees me we've seen the stories read the stories that even with your privacy.
Settings in place he would still sort of -- information leaking out there.
I think it is safe I mean the for the challenge is getting into it and figuring out how to do it that's not necessarily the easy part because you've got -- got to figure out where it is and don't click through and get to the privacy settings to make sure you.
Lock them down play any estimation this is checking.
Now you are hiding how do you limit your your cookies -- BC block them as well.
Yeah you can go into your browser you can just set it so it will limit either first party cookies which is basically the site -- -- that's Amazon FaceBook.
And also limit third party cookies which would be the -- that are being added to your sites -- to your browser when you're visiting.
And we get us us we have some information recently this has usually when you visiting a web site.
Up to 65 different cookies or pieces of code or attach to your browser when U visit that site.
Those are tracking yeah of course they have out like that he's been that that -- -- yeah.
So you can go in your server in cementing your browser browser setting -- block cookies and it's very clear his life can be -- or aren't registered very good very good and you should do that.
That is now this -- occasionally out of time anyway right throughout the course is using -- -- -- used passwords effectively and organized then you take that as well -- B I think one of the biggest things that you can do to help yourself especially during the holidays is whenever you're accessing web -- make sure you've got a different password.
And change those passwords regularly so every three to six months change amount.
We find that about 80% of the time if someone gets in -- one platform to get your password.
-- don't get into the well because a lot of people use the same across the board because it's easy.
That in itself.
And like you said he's eighteen and up to get to organize benefits of because you don't know you forget your password that's what people use the same ones over and over so how do you organize them.
Well you can use a password manager.
Tool software tool that is -- play into your browser which helps an awful lot and they automatically will make -- dynamic and they'll change on a regular basis but you've got one.
For all your website how does that work -- mean.
-- very software tools up a little plug in your browser and you can go and you can then put -- connect all your sites like it's FaceBook and Twitter and maybe some e-commerce channels and whatever my people.
And you can put the password -- -- passwords to those sites into that software.
And then it will automatically log in through that program and you can use one username and password.
But it will automatically dynamic I'm seeing good honest I think keep it also very secure that's a great way -- -- is there a particular.
What would you call it -- or or there's a place to go and a -- of come out there if you put in password management engine Google you'll find their fear.
We think when you see that the ones that -- -- death okay.
-- -- any effect TC look for telltale signs for cell phone hacking and then you install a simple to use security solution.
So you wanna just look at protecting.
Peter you want to make yourself I was protected because all of the -- million mobile commerce on the phone in eighteen years.
You do not want to make shouldn't have the same obsessive spell encryption on your phone immediately -- your regular browser.
And you also want to -- And I saw burn your phone and make sure you have the ability to remotely like this -- -- -- if -- gets lost or stolen and you know we we know you can do that Brady iPhone.
Can he do that bring android phone as well to guess that there there are various -- solutions out there that we can remotely.
-- -- -- OK okay and again that's something you can -- -- and and find various.
Companies that offer that that type of software that yeah you know what the heck is that that we go right doesn't get it.
-- technology X -- -- dot com.
180 feet and a AVG -- come only in the Google marketplace through dive teams abc.com.
All the visiting guy's and street -- it's free that's exit right.
OK so you know create we have another the schools -- but because it's it's it's holiday shopping time.
In who is.
A lot of time to go to all the stories you go online right so here -- ways to secretly shop online during the holiday season.
You -- brand name merchants and it -- seek feedback on customer experiences.
Check for the SSL protocol.
Use a credit card that insures against fraud can hear we hear about that went and be assured.
About using a public.
But be careful -- be careful about using a public hot spot to shop and I just think that's cutting.
Crazy that less than just don't do it.
Don't with the public cuts but that's despite the bad opinion that you guys are the -- so let's go back to the top and break it down he's brand name merchants.
Good and I think the important thing is you know if -- using brand name reputable merchants they have certain security requirements that they met as part of their due diligence the company and there are also some insurance isn't there that you know if your identity is compromised there's certain things remedies to take against themselves.
It's always important to do that and not just a mile of the site that you never heard of -- -- -- you know.
Looks like it's sort of thrown up on the on the on the web page right -- what.
This is important is -- happens you're looking for that hard to find gave Q school believes certain that you thought you fight it and it's so weird went public citizen -- even if you find it EC.
A hundred bucks on that item at this weird unknown and no name website be careful -- thinking -- be getting could be getting more than you bargained for.
OK so you seek feedback on customer experience is so prisons.
And I had gone to website XYZ to purchase something -- Regis he's like you know don't do it got ripped off or whatever right.
Basement or it's OK there's lots of customer feedback of your own time.
Yeah that's the best that week and they're not.
Partisan -- -- again your exit check for this -- -- protocol and then you credit card that insures against fraud.
And I was.
A couple of things -- -- this woman most credit cards have fraud you know protection bill you sometimes even alert you if someone's using under.
For whatever that might -- But I think it's really important -- that's pretty standard is to use one credit card only when you're shopping online.
Especially during the Christmas season its -- it's got a really low balance yeah so in the event somebody gets your information that limits the damage.
Limited damage we'll let isn't little balance.
-- real credit limit is what you're saying that even if let's say for security have a credit card that's sent out.
That has you know whatever -- limited Zito and ridden and credit card but -- you're saying you are you make sure that credit card has pretty much as zero or very -- -- yeah suddenly I win.
Yeah exactly 500 to win the bill comes in you realize like holy smokes wait -- -- I didn't charge like three -- -- credit card.
Otherwise -- had to get headed in there.
Ari that's good so Aaliyah and finally -- be careful about using a public hotspots and shop.
A series I -- you know I had a couple -- I'm just saying hello my but I'm just say it.
I think it away.
And I think you're exactly right -- I think there's lots of secure hot -- you can use but it's really easy.
You know there's lots of programs out there that are open source that anybody can -- put on their computer instant hot spot and read your -- off your computer so like you said just don't.
However a lot of people are -- -- -- -- would -- coffee shop nothing at the coffee shop or and that the cell phone hot spot if you will.
You're saying just generally speaking great viewing and download your latest magazine -- -- latest you know these people whatever that's fine if he kind of you kind of have to -- can even then even then.
Because once you're on what you're connected well that gives them access -- -- on your final here right there at fifteen computer period right males.
Viewing the web -- really matters so just be really careful public hotspots that serious I mean what I think -- looks -- you have no idea.
I'm privileged having you bet in about fifteen years in this day and making up.
Early and hit -- put that.
There are a lot of kids get up up up up up.
So -- we're we're going to be wrapping up -- before we go though I.
Speaking at the when -- questioner what I have I ask you generally speaking.
-- their special precautions that apply to mobile devices concerning online privacy.
Because we we we really kind of reducing yourselves to doing it right here in our -- and -- hit I think it's.
I think what people don't necessarily realize is that that phone it's a mobile wallet it's got everything your computer has on it.
And so it's become a target just like your computer and so.
It's super important because it's even more of -- device music do you carry everywhere you go back and it can locate you from -- geo tracking prospective.
Operators -- -- access your emails.
They can see everything that's on the phone all your apps there's just a lot of information and it's accessible so be sure and have.
Some kind of software on their privacy and security software on iPhone.
I would say one other thing when you're downloading applications single slice make sure they're legitimate applications from legitimate providers because those applications -- then -- and accessing email can access.
-- -- on even the -- didn't.
The winds that you don't -- -- -- produce an OK if you download this app it's really cool happened as the legitimate at the we're gonna be calling your grandmother.
I think as we have -- and every now.
I mean seriously you remember anything really why I think kind of scares me that I -- -- -- -- paranoid about it but I've and I've sort of gotten past that.
Just click next next next next -- you're -- he's only a lot of privacy regulations require him to ask -- they don't always the end at least read during installation.
-- AVG dot com is please go for all of the information we talked about today JR Smith.
I should bombing -- thank you to both view very important information so appreciate it -- speaking of shopping we come back a little later in the show we talk but all the fancy gadgets that are out there.
For all of you geeks all of us geeks -- -- Skype sleep.
We had a story about that coming up right after this break.
-- left and he did it I did last night Skyping -- talking about guys relax so hi Jason cats.
Are you did decent series -- his -- -- the when he -- see that big names here health talk right correct health talk is your company health talk dot com.
Is your is your website here so we're here decent years he's CEO whether he's -- -- -- So we're here because we're gonna talk about the digital messenger world's everybody's in -- and everything if you can just tell me just first well we'll start generally speaking.
What's happening in that world.
Well more and more devices are now capable of doing video conference saying so whether it's an android phone or it's an iPhone or it's your computer.
People are entering into video conferences so Skype is one of the more well known.
The programs but so was -- thought which is what I've been doing for more than ten years.
-- to check out -- tough because I will because I thank.
And like the other people some people appear who who do use Skype collided Tuesday as they seem to mean much monopolizing that the messenger field wouldn't you say.
Well it's quite -- -- with MS and shutting down.
As well so once Microsoft bought Skype I think it was sort of axiomatic that -- -- -- would go away because Skype at least has a way to make money and that you have to pay for phone calls.
And also pay for a subscription if you want to do multi party video conferencing.
So as in the case of Powell talked we give away multiparty video conferencing for free so that that's sort of our niche yes we actually.
Incredibly pre date Skype by about four years.
So we were very very early in the space but certainly we didn't have quite the penetration something like Skype has which is pretty much become pervasive worldwide.
How do you because -- all parties involved he can't get all your buddies in your house and -- talk because that's how you communicate.
Well that's a very interesting point so most of those software that's in the world today really supports talking to people you know.
So whether using Skype or -- Chad or anything else -- largely talking to your cousin your brother your child your parent.
With Powell -- it's more of a social entertainment experience -- you meet people from all over the world you can use it with people that you know and then you would have to get them all on your buddy list etc.
But you also can find other people -- talk about.
About topics really about what's going on in the world about politics about music anything like -- like most of that the apps now he finds it I signed up for four pal Todd dot com now.
Cousin has an iPhone and you have an android you can actually be in a video conference together.
And then you can join in the third person who's on computers so.
That's -- the world has to go where it shouldn't matter where you are what device you access a video conference it should just be.
Pervasive and so why did it help time dot com I can get the F parent.
Well if you have an iPhone you'll be directed in the App Store to get it yet to get the app for iPhone if you have an android you go to that store you know the App Store for and so -- go to my my App Store on my phone what am -- looking for -- talk.
That's in -- -- talked in every case but just depending on which device you're using you'll get a -- from -- software -- again they're all cross platform so.
You can talk to anybody on in any other device and again that the big thing here for buses.
Multi party that's where we shine that's where something like Skype charges money.
And you could be up there we've had.
Five who literally 3000 people in a video conference and it's not just to stream it's an interactive himself.
You can do Q&A its -- for many many different things but it's really -- a little bit of a different vehicle you can do.
The one on one stuff that you wanna do people you know but you can also meet other people and then gain you know news from around the world.
-- we have you know fairness here we have a full screen that -- when Sheridan is today.
From from Skype from the president Tony -- hear you saying.
Quote we want to focus our efforts on making things simpler for our users while continuously.
Improving the overall experience again -- -- blog post by Skype's president Tony Bates just to.
And the children -- -- around here so what would you security told me some of the key differences Jason.
Between Skype in -- -- Wales is it about your.
Application you're you were service that you want to make sure that everybody understand.
-- I didn't even mention that you can also text message from our application so you can send text messages anywhere in the world as well you can also make phone calls from the software to people on telephones and very competitive rates so.
What Skype does we do is a feature it's not really everything you get in fact we're sort of -- to say it for the Swiss army knife of applications that way.
You can do the multi party video conference with people you know but you can also.
Speak to people from all over the world about any subject that you like.
And it -- becomes sort of -- soap box people moderate their own.
Conversation can have a family reunion -- there if you want for the holidays you can actually have a party on line -- -- big hug him with no drinking and driving every give everybody -- responsibly.
-- -- home but.
The ability to do.
High quality audio and video on the Internet and a multi -- way is not a trivial problem came and that's exactly why something like Skype charges for multi party.
-- gives away the one on one and free.
All right well said.
