Spring Clean your Digital Space

Just like your home or wardrobe gets cluttered over time, your digital devices are the same. To get the most out of your digital devices, spring cleaning for technology is a must!


Here are a few tips to get you started:

  1. Delete unwanted digital files stored in your email, online storages and computer.

  2. Uninstall outdated programs and apps that you no longer use to free up your memory storages and protect your devices from being exposed to vulnerabilities.

  3. Back up or archive your files to ensure data will be available in the event of hard disk failure or if your computer becomes compromised.

  4. Close and delete online accounts that you no longer access.  Be sure to delete the  data store in the account or permission granted to reduce the risk of exposing your information should there be a data breach.
