After the big Equifax hack, I’ve become really interested in cyber security. I don’t trust the companies that hold my information online, and I’m very wary of the cloud – after all, Apple’s iCloud was already hacked once! I’m trying to get better at covering my tracks online and keeping social networks, apps, and other things from tracking my movements and personal information.

I was never great with technology, though, and when I ask my tech-savvy friends for tips on staying safe online, I get a flood of information and acronyms and very little in the way of explanation or layman’s terms. Can your experts provide some simple tips for staying secure online?
