    If you use voice assistants to make calls and look up businesses you may be open to a new scam targeted at people who use voice assistants to find services and companies. 

    When you say "hey Google, call Bobs Plumbing" you would expect to get Bob or his staff to answer the phone when you have called but you may get another business or a scammer who has pushed thier listing in front of Bob's. The best protection is to use voice to research the business you need to contact and look for their website to make sure they are real.

    So what is the latest news?

    What is important to you may be very different to what is important to me but some things are important to all of us even if we don't think it is and here is where you will find that news.

    Every week I will post the important security alerts that are circulating online, on Facebook, other social media and in your email box so that you can be alert of these dangers and protect yourself and your friends.

    Every Friday I will send an email to all Frontier Internet Zone members with detailed information to keep you educated and safe online. I will also share interesting stuff and answer your questions as you ask them so that you have the tools and confidence to surf the net and use technology without the worry and fear holding you back.

    In Australia there are more than 14 million people online which is probably everyone over the age of 13.  In 2017 there were estimated to be around 16 million smartphone users so in theory that is 16 million people connected to the internet in some sort of way.

    So imagine how many people are online in Australia now.

    With so many people online and so much content available to be consumed we have a whole world of information and entertainment and opportunity at our disposal.

    The next bulletin will be the first opportunity to share with you the Internet and Tech sfuff that matters to you.
