Securing Your Digital Life And Accessible Fitness Apps

On this week's episode, Marco discussed accessible fitness apps, Kirt reviewed Surfshark VPN and we chatted about how best to secure your digital life in order to protect yourself as best as you can from the internet nasties.

Welcome to episode 72 of the Blind Tech Guys. We appreciate you taking time out of your day to listen and we trust you will enjoy the latest episode of the pod. We also welcome all of the new countries that have come onboard over the last week. Happy Chinese New Year. Thank you to Strap.tech for mentioning our podcast in their newsletter, as well as to Top Tech Tidbits.
 
 

Main Topic

 
We discussed privacy and security of your phone. While a VPN is not the answer to being “hack-proof”, it can go a long way to keeping you safe, particularly on public wireless networks.
  • Kirt demonstrated Surfshark, his preferred VPN app and service.
Nimer discussed the need of anti-virus programs on PC and phones.
  • We recommend Sophos Home.
 
Get Fit
 
Marco told us about the fitness apps he has tried on Android whilst he’s gone back to the gym and in next week’s show, he will demonstrate these, plus others that may be of interest.
 
Did you know??
 
Telegram is a great alternative to WhatsApp for your chatting needs. We have previously discussed the Android and iOS version. We discuss Unigram, a Windows app to use Telegram. Unigram is accessible with both Jaws for Windows and NVDA. 
 
Listener Emails
 
We addressed some comments from our web form, and a listener email this week.
