Helpful ways to protect your Microsoft account
I have seen more times than not, users reaching out about their accounts being hacked. Just a few tips for everyone who stumbles upon this post. > It is advised you change your password atleast once every three months. > Activate two-step authentication to ensure you receive a 6-digit code to a trusted e-mail or cellular device each time you attempt to login. > Never share your account details with anyone and remember, Microsoft employees will never ask for your account password. > Do not click on any suspicious URL's and always ensure you are on microsoft.com or windows.com before typing in any login credentials. This will prevent information phishing. > Never use the same password for more than two accounts. This prevents hackers from accessing other accounts on other websites. If at anytime you believe someone may have access or has had access to your account, change your password immediately. It is also advised that you change the e-mail address associated with your account. Should there ever be a need for further assistance, you are always welcomed to contact Microsoft customer care.
Let's talk VPN's. Are they really necessary ?
Back when I was an active participant in the producing section of society, (I'm now retired). I used a VPN for connecting my laptop to many hotel/motel/restaurants' WIFI. This of course was in the days before tethering to my cell phone was allowed (cough, cough) and of course unlimited data plans. Today however there seems to be an abundance of free WIFI from stores, cable companies, and even some municipalities. What I've also noticed when I'm out and about is, that if there is a WIFI connection available, and I'm not connected to it, it will try and connect, there by almost stifling what I am trying to access. An example would be an Excel file. When that happens I simply shut the WIFI off, and go on about my business using my data plan. Given that tantalizing tidbit of information, and the fact that about the only place I consciously connect to WIFI is home, is a VPN in my case really necessary?

Amazon's Echo Dot and WiFi Connection
Hi everyone I bought one of Amazons Echo Dots last week. A very sweet little thing. Only issue with it is it took 4 HOURS to connect to my router after I downloaded the app for it and followed the instructions to connect to my router. The router I have is a BT Home Hub 6 and am connected to their Infinity 1 Broadband Service. I have my laptop, printer and phone connected to the WiFi and set top box on an ethernet cable plugged into the back of the router. I have reported this issue to Amazon but I would like your thoughts as to why it took so long. By the way I have somehow got it working. Thanks.
