5 important blog posts - you should know this image

Today, I want to share 5 important blog posts from the 579 I’ve published thus far. You might wonder why I would do this. Simple. A new reader of my blog asked me, “John, I don’t have time to read all the posts I’ve missed. Which posts would you say are most important?” We have a lot of new readers to my blog and I would think most of them might ask the same question. With that in mind, here are my choices for the 5 most important blog posts I’ve published – to date!

In this post, I explain “When it comes to security online, the weakest link in the chain is, unfortunately, the computer user. That’s you, that’s me. Oh, there are other security issues – hence, updates to our software, etc. But, it’s the person in front of the computing device’s screen who makes up the most vulnerable aspect of the virtual world.” I consider this the MOST important post I’ve written and I urge you to read or re-read.

I want you to read this entire post. However, here’s the most important paragraph: “Remember: Microsoft, Apple, Google and other big companies like them will NEVER call you out of the blue and tell you there are problems with your computer. They will NEVER cause a pop-up to appear on your screen asking you to call a number because there’s an issue. If you receive this kind of call, hang up on them. If you get a pop-up on your computer and don’t know how to get rid of it without calling the scammer’s number, call us. We will help you.”
