Are you ready to protect your online life but don’t know where to start?

From keeping your kids and finances safe on the internet to stopping your sex toys from spying on you, Cybersafe For Humans gives you examples and practical, actionable advice on cybersecurity and how to stay safe online.

The world of cybersecurity tends to be full of impenetrable jargon and solutions that are impractical for individuals. Cybersafe For Humans will help you to demystify the world of cybersecurity and make it easier to protect you and your family from increasingly sophisticated cybercriminals.

If you think you’re secure online and don’t need this book, you REALLY need it!

Everyone could learn a little something about how to be safer online.

Some of my favorite passages were the ones that included lists of information about trustworthy websites, apps, security devices, and other helpful tools. This became even more true once I realized that Mr. Acheampong would share detailed reasons why he recommended them and what, if anything, he’d change about them if he could. It was exactly the sort of stuff I was hoping to find, and I have multiple pages bookmarked for future reference.

I was impressed by the breadth of information shared here. For example, I didn’t realize that filling out online quizzes or publicly sharing family photos can be incredibly dangerous. Other readers should discover for themselves why that is so and what they should do instead. These were only two examples of the many security tips the author shared that may not be common knowledge but should certainly be paid attention to when deciding what sorts of virtual activities to participate in and which ones to avoid.

Mr. Acheampong had a friendly and conversational writing style that pulled me into his book by the time I’d finished the first paragraph. He didn’t make a lot of assumptions about how much his readers already knew about cybersecurity, so he took the time to explain what various acronyms meant and how thieves use all sorts of tools, both technical and psychological, to trick people into clicking on suspicious links or sharing sensitive information. This was an especially good read for anyone who is comfortable surfing the internet on various devices but who maybe hasn’t thought about how it all works.

Cybersafe for Humans – A Simple Guide to Keep You and Your Family Safe Online was excellent.
