There’s lots of free software available online that can be beneficial to you and your computer. For Example, there are free anti-virus programs out there with some of them being pretty good and the nice thing about that is it can save you money so that you don’t have to buy any of the more well-known anti-virus programs that are out there.
Other free software can include alternatives to Microsoft Office and there are free video games you can play online too. While all this sounds good, because after all who doesn’t like free, there can be a downside to free software. Free programs that are available for download can be infected with malware or viruses which could cause harm to your computer.
There are many scams out there that try to part you with your money or even identity. I’ve talked about some specific types of scams known as phishing scams which are generally emails made to look like they are from legitimate companies such as Apple, Netflix, PayPal, and Amazon.
A lot of times I have shown examples of those types of fraudulent emails because I myself have received them especially ones that claim to be from PayPal, one of which you can read about here. Thankfully, I haven’t fallen victim to these type of phishing scams even though I’ve gotten close several times.

I’ve posted a lot of articles recently about a very common type of scam out there and it’s known as a phishing scam. They tend to come into your email inbox quite often and it is easy to fall for them because they tend to mimic a company that you actually have an account with, except it really isn’t them and they will try to get your valuable log in information so that they can do actual damage to the account you have with the actual company.
