  • how to protect your data and your information from data breaches
  • what to do if you have been caught in a data breach
  • setting your Facebook security so that you only share photos with those you choose
  • whether your antivirus software is right for you

Internet basics

  • what is “the cloud” and how to use it
  • what do all these buzzwords actually mean anyway
  • what is the difference between WiFi and data
  • how to use a search engine
  • how to send an email

Smartphones, tablets, and other devices

  • what’s the difference between a tap, swipe, scroll, or long tap?
