June 1 · Issue #39 · View online
The Digital Life
Welcome back to The Digital Life. We hope you’re settled in for the start of this unusual summer. Despite ongoing health concerns, there’s still time for relaxation and a few interesting projects! We’ll keep bringing you articles to keep you informed and inspired, from the hundreds a month we read.
This month we wanted to re-iterate that scams are shifting and preying on the anxieties around the health crisis. We challenge you to take the scam spotter quiz below.
Moving on from there, take a little review of the iCloud if it’s still a little….well…cloudy. And, learn to save some money on your phone bill. The health department has us looking at wearables and the medical id on your phone.
Finally - the department of smiles - you’ll just have to read on to find out!
Have a great start to June - DON’T FORGET DAD THIS MONTH! 🙂

Department of Scams
Did you notice your phone hasn’t been ringing as much? Call centers are overwhelmed and understaffed due to the health crisis, and that goes for the robocallers too. Where have the scammers turned their attention? Online and to your inbox.

Exploring Technology Zoom discussion
We conducted a great Zoom session with the San Clemente Village last month exploring safe browsing techniques. We plan to follow up soon with more Zoom discussions, both in conjunction with San Clemente Village and independently. The next topic - safe e-mailing. You can even prepare with the phishing quiz we included above. STAY TUNED 🙂
In closing - Happy Father's Day!
