Digital LifeHacks You Can Do Right Now

Because there’s nothing more satisfying than a good lifehack.

Digital life is a really cool place to be. And today we’re going to share some practical digital lifehacks to make navigating your connected world a little more private, organized, and simpler!

 

Stop Peeping Toms

 

Did you know hackers are able to access your webcam or smartphone camera to watch you? Taping over your webcam or phone camera prevents hackers from using your webcam for spying. Electrical tape is best for not leaving any sticky residue on your devices and being re-applicable. Think we’re being paranoid? Even tech giants like {ijseo_redirect id=278}.

 

Hear No Evil

 

Similar to taping your webcam, your headphone jack is another vulnerability to your privacy as it can be used as a microphone to listen in on you. So how do you protect yourself here? Taping your headphone jack won’t help (sorry Zuckerberg, you are a bit lost on that one). What you do need is to {ijseo_redirect id=279}. Here’s what you do.
