Quick Tips for Online Safety

I get asked regularly how people can protect themselves online and I wanted to create a quick post to help people get started with the basics. There are a lot of really great guides and resources and this is in no way comprehensive, just a couple starting points for people who are overwhelmed and don’t know where to turn.
