How to Clean Out the Cruft

Software cruft are basically “digital dust bunnies.” You know, those duplicate files, forgotten downloads, abandoned files from apps you deleted, and so on. They’re slowing you down big time. Getting the cruft out may sound daunting, but it is actually easy to do. Apple, Microsoft and Google have all joined the anti-cruft global crusade and  have added cruft-removal tools to their operating systems. You just need to remind yourself to use them.


SMishing is any type of phishing attempt that involves text messaging. As consumers, we tend to be more trusting on our cell phones, but this is very dangerous. Cyber criminals are able to mimic sms (text) messages making it look like it's from someone you know and asking you to click on a link.  If for some reason you do this, ransomware could possibly be downloaded on your device and could compromise your sensitive information like credit card, social security and account numbers.
