  1. Hello

    I think the last section should be titled “Passwords” not “Smart Phones” again. And under “Web Apps” the last item about installing updates isn’t relevant to web apps as a user – as updates are delivered to web apps by the provider, I think this is referring to Operating System updates, which needs its own section.

    But good advise.

    • Scott – Good catch! That has been updated to be “passwords.” Also good comment about the web apps, you’re right, we do need to make a more server/OS specific section or just another tips sheet in itself.
