Practical tools for your digital move

Moving online involves more than just creating a social media profile or using cloud services. Here are some useful tools and services that make your everyday life easier:

  • Digital assistants: tools such as Google Assistant or Apple’s Siri can do a variety of tasks for you, from scheduling appointments to automatically replying to emails.
  • Password manager: services such as LastPass or 1Password store all your passwords securely in one place and even create strong passwords for you.
  • VPN services: providers such as NordVPN or ExpressVPN protect your online privacy and security by encrypting your Internet connection.
  • Smart home devices: with devices from providers such as Google Home or Amazon Echo, your home can be controlled from anywhere - from lights and heating to security systems.

Beware of dangers

Just like in the real world, there are some dangers online that you need to protect yourself from. Always keep your personal information secure and private by using strong passwords and two-factor authentication where this is available. Whenever possible, consider the privacy policy before giving a website or app access to your data.
