What You Should Look Out For
6 Lectures 22:20

Many people will say that their computer, smartphone or tablet has slowed way down, or is behaving differently to how they think it should. Within this short video I point out the signs that will point to your device having been infected with a virus or spyware.

Preview 01:07

One of the most common ways a device will get infected is through clicking on a link or an attachment in a email. In this video I'll point out what you should do when you receive an email with an attachment, and suggest the best email system to use.

Preview 05:23

When someone attempts to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, or credit card details, and sometimes money or other valuables. I show some real examples I've received and what you need to look out for.


Large numbers of internet users visit download sites to try and download movies, TV shows, software, books etc. What they don't realize is that many of the downloads are infected with adware, spyware or viruses. In this video you'll see, in real time, an attempt to install adware on my laptop - and how my computer deals with it.

Internet Download Sites

It seems like everyone is using social media websites these days, but there are links you should never click and actions you should never take.

You'll see examples of these and also the sort of information you should keep off such websites.

Social Media Sites

Very few people take note of the fact that their computer's internet connection can be tracked via their IP address. This video shows you an easy to use website where you can check your ip address, and run a test to see how much information us being leaked from your computer.

I also take a quick look at a Virtual Private Network (VPN) provider, and why you may want to use one.

Many people connect their devices to the internet without appropriate protection. This video looks at some of the best software solutions, and thankfully a few of the top ones can be installed free of charge.

Antivirus & Firewall Software

Spyware is software that aids in gathering information about a person or organization without their knowledge and that may send such information to another entity without the consumer's consent, or takes control over a computer without the consumer's knowledge.

In this video I look at some of the software available to combat this threat.


Many people use the same passwords for several accounts, and make them so simple that their easy to guess.

This video suggests using simple methods for storing your passwords.

Password Storage Suggestions

Protecting your online accounts with simple passwords is not a sensible thing to do, but most people ignore warnings and continue to do so.

In this video you'll learn how to generate very secure passwords that should keep your information safe.

Digital Publisher - Writer - Educator - Product Creator

I'm a Digital Publisher, Writer, Educator and Product Creator who is continually seeking ways to help people cut through the smoke and mirrors of the complex online world.

My careers and interests have given me a wide range of experiences.

I spent 15 years carrying out investigative / security work for the government, then progressed into the world of sales.

When I discovered I liked selling good products and solving peoples problems, I joined a business service company where I was quickly promoted to National Sales & Marketing Manager.

That's when I decided 'the company' lifestyle was not one which I was keen to be a part of, so ventured off to find my own way in the world.

My goal was to have a little less pressure in my life. I'd always been a keen photographer, and had written a little too, so I took this experience and moved into photographic / editorial work. This saw me soon taking on assignments as a freelancer for several local magazines, and eventually publishing my own bi-monthly magazine for a time.

My interest in the online world was growing, and in the late 90's I progressed to learning to build websites, I now mainly build sites to help individuals raise their profiles in various ways via JimMontgomery.Co.Uk, where I also create information products.

I was a founding partner at DavidJamePublishing.Com where I remained for 3-1/2 years. I created the branding and website, also the setting up of new books in both paperback, and kindle formats.

I also create promotional videos for companies and individuals at A4Magic.Com.

Life keeps me busy, and as I've always enjoyed showing people how to do things, I'm now creating books and courses to enable me to share my years of accumulated knowledge, and have recently launched this course on Udemy - and a best selling book on Amazon - - on this same topic of Internet Security when using Laptops, Smartphones & Tablets,
