Did you have a great Halloween? I loaded up on lots of delicious trick or treat candy to last me at least until all the Christmas treats appear. But Halloween is over and it’s time to switch out the ghouls, pumpkins and tombstones for string lights, Christmas trees, and tinsel. Yes, I know I skipped over Thanksgiving (for those of us in the US), but my local stores have had holiday decorations up since September. The holiday season is officially here!
The holiday season is a time of family, friends and tradition but it is also a busy time for hackers and scammers. They’ve planned all kinds of tricks to steal your money, information and cheer, knowing that this festive time of year is when we tend to let our guards down. It’s important to stay digitally safe during the holidays.
This year, McAfee and Dell are partnering to bring you the Season of Sharing Sweepstakes! It’s super easy to participate, just share content about how to avoid these holiday digital dangers with your friends and family.
