As an Internet Safety expert and professional hacker, I’ve been a witness to the good and dark side of the Internet. What is a gateway to connect socially and to learn has also become a haven for cyberbullies and predators intend on harming our children and taking advantage of our senior citizens. Protecting families has become my passion. Now, I’m offering an ongoing video series with up to date simple tips and tricks and “insider secrets” for protecting families who are increasingly online.

My videos will show you the Internet’s dark side many of our children are experiencing while online and connecting through social media sites. I’ll show you how to Google yourself, search out fake profiles, recognize changes in the behaviours of family members, how to block objectionable material, create unbreakable passwords - encouraging us all to assume a safety mindset toward the Internet.

How to know if you've been hacked - Video 2

In this 3rd installment of this video series, I’d like to change the pace a little. You see, Over the fast 6 years I’ve been watching friends account after friends account getting hacked into, or going on the 6 o’clock news to talk about how people’s photos are being used by other scammers who’ve created a fake look-a-like profile in order to try and scam their friends. These people all had some things in common. 1) they all had a lousy and weak passwords and 2) their photos were all set to public mode which means I don’t even have to be connected to you in order to view or download your photos.
