5 Best Ways to Secure Your New Tech Gifts

Whoopee! It's the holiday season! For sure, you have got a lot of surprise tech gifts (Hurrah! I too got a Netgear extender!) by your buddies and will continue to be surprised till the end of this wonderful festive season.

A loose lid on your water bottle, a hot coffee cup, or a hip hop music – that may be all it takes to unwrap your precious tech gadget. And as you move your hands on a new tech gift, your first thought is to brag about the same and make others feel jealous.

If 2019 edified you anything about personal technology, the onus is on you to safeguard your personal tech gadgets. Tech companies are not going to whirl a security magic stick for you. In fact, you have to protect your devices yourself. Oh, c'mon buddy! You don't need to make a New Year's resolution to protect your tech gadgets. Instead, just take a quick round of our post to know the best ways to create a security wall around your new, precious tech gadget. Let's go!

1. Give Your Tech Gadget a Unique Password

If you got a Netgear extender (just like me!), let us tell you that it comes with a default and easy-to-guess password. And various users just continue to use their extender with the default password. Don't do that!

Obviously, most people can't remember a series of random numbers, letters, and symbols to secure each of their devices. But changing the default password often and making it as hard-to-guess as possible can be a lifesaver. Additionally, it doesn't let others use your extender's Netgear_ext network without your consent.

2. Keep Your Home WiFi Network Secure

Public WiFi networks cause risks to your new and gifted devices, resulting in a vulnerability in your home network. To put a stop on potential vulnerabilities at home, check if your WiFi extender or router uses WiFi Protected Access II (WPA2) encryption method. If not, change your router's encryption method to WPA2 right away.

3. Check the Security Settings of Your Device

Bitter but true – Not all devices put your security first! Therefore, remember to check the privacy preferences and security settings of all your devices prior to using them. On the basis of your device, you can set up two-factor authentication, prevent unauthorized connections, or limit app permissions, just to name a few.

For instance, if you got a Netgear EX2700 extender as a gift, you can deny access to a WiFi device after the Netgear EX2700 setup.

4. Avoid Using Public WiFi Networks

If you love your tech gadgets as much as we do, chances are you wish to take them everywhere you go. Generally, the mindset of almost all users is to connect their device to a free, public WiFi hotspot. Don't do that!

Connecting your devices to an open or public WiFi network can lead you to data theft or viruses. Instead, opt for a telecom company's 3G or 4G network. Or else, you can also use a VPN if you ultimately connect to a public wireless network. Better safe than sorry!

5. Set up Automatic Updates

This suggestion goes for both the operating system and firmware updates. Keeping your tech gadgets up-to-date will provide you with the latest protection against the newest threats found. In case you find no option for automatic updates or prefer to have more control over your devices, keep in mind to update them yourself whenever a new version available.

In the case of a Netgear extender, you can update its firmware manually via the default web user interface. Simply go to the Netgear extender setup web page. If you see any pop-up message saying 'a firmware update is available', just click on that. Let the firmware update process be completed. Once done, reboot your extender and enjoy the fast internet connection all over your home.

Keep these tips and suggestions in mind as you embark on the new year and secure your new, beloved tech gadgets. We wish you a happy and well-secured holiday season!

How To Refund A Game On Steam?
How to refund a game on steam? Valve provides customers with a large refund policy for purchased Steam games. If you fulfill the two basic requirements set forth within their policy on returns You'll be able to receive a refund without any trouble. This is what you should be aware of. Do I Qualify For An Refund From Steam? In order to be eligible for refunds, you must to apply for an refund within two weeks after purchase and have completed less than two hours in the game. This is the same for bundles, too with the exception that the total hours aren't more than 2 hours in all the games as a whole, nor will any of the games included in this bundle transferable. Purchases made through pre-orders can be returned at any time prior to when the game is released. If the game is launched, the usual guidelines apply: not more than 2 hours of playing, and within two weeks. Additionally, you are able to make a refund of Steam games you've given to someone else, as that they don't have redeemed the game. If they have, they're able to request the refund on their own under the rule of two hours/two weeks and the funds will be given to the individual who bought the item, not to the person who gave it as a gift. How Do I Request A Refund For The Purchase Of A Steam Game? If your game was bought in less than 14 calendar days ago , and you've played for less than 2 hours, you're entitled to the right to a full refund. Here's how you can get one. To begin, go to first go to the Steam support website. This page is accessible via Support > Steam Support within Steam or through the Steam Support website from your browser. If you access this page from your browser on the internet, you'll be required login with your Steam account in order to proceed. If you visit this site within Steam it will automatically registered. How Steam Refunds Work In Simple Terms? Visit the Steam support page, and select "Purchases," then click the game you'd like to return. Choose "I would like to get a reimbursement," and then "I'd like to request an amount of refund." You'll then be able to select the Steam Wallet you've got in your Steam Wallet or the payment method you'd prefer get your cash via. If it's within 14 days from the purchase, and when you've played under two hours your refund request will be automatically accepted. Within one week, the purchase will be reimbursed within a week. How Much Of The Reimbursement Process Is Fully Automated? According to Valve the company, refunds made within 14 days after purchase for games that have more than 2 hours playing time will be automatically approved. If you've made a lot of refunds in the past or your refunds fall beyond the two-hour period of 14 days that it will not be immediately approved, but will be reviewed by an employee of Valve employee. How Do The Financial Aspects Of Refunds Affect Valve Or The Designer? If you purchase an online game through Steam however, the proceeds don't directly go to the developer. Valve does not distribute revenue from sales for developers till the close of the month in which the sale has taken place which means that developers don't receive the money they earned from sales in January until February's end. Since there is a Steam refund window is usually just 14 days long developers technically do not lose money through refunds. They simply never get to see the sales in the first place. The Issue Is With Steam's Policy On Refunds Valve certainly has a flexible, pro-consumer-friendly policy for refunds. They allow customers to return their games within a specified time and only if they've played a game for less than 2 hours for any reason. But, like any good thing the policy of refunds can be abused and has deterred many independent developers from developing new games or launching new games. As is the case with Emika Games, a small indie game development company. What Is The Best Time To Refund An Steam Game? If you satisfy these conditions, Valve guarantees that you get your money back. If you fail to meet all of these requirements, you may submit a refund request. In this situation, Valve will look into the circumstances of your case. It isn't certain that you will receive the refund, but there are still a good chance that you'll receive your money back and there's no harm in trying , so you should certainly consider giving it a shot. In accordance with the Steam refund policy, there are two primary requirements for requesting an Steam refund. It is recommended that you play the game for no more than 2 hours. It must be purchased within the last 14 calendar days. There is no way to return games you purchased from outside Steam and then added to Steam using the product key. There are many instances when you purchase a game through third-party stores in order to save money. This feature makes it easier to buy games through Steam. If you aren't satisfied with the game you can return it the game. If you are able to have to refund many games, Valve may consider this as a form of abuse and stop request for refunds in the future. Valve isn't clear on their definitions of"abuse" however, you should be okay provided you don't purchase lots of games, and you refund the majority of them. Valve mentions that if you purchase an item prior to the sale and return it to buy it again during the sale price to make money, the money doesn't mean you're stealing.  For instance it costs $100 to buy a game without any sales. After a few days, there's a sale in which you can purchase it at $50. It is possible to return the game to us for $100, and then purchase it for $50 on sales menu. This isn't a sham and is permitted provided that the game is purchased within the last 14 days. The refund you received will be returned to the payment method that you purchased the game with. You may even transfer the money into your Steam wallet to use it for other purposes. There Is A Limit On The Number Of Games You Can Return? There's no fixed limit to how many games you could be able to refund on your account However, the platform won't permit users to violate their return policy. If you have a large number of returns to your account or you have a lot of requests for refunds, you may receive the email of Steam warning you to reduce the pace of your return. If you keep sending requests for refunds the account may be banned from making refunds in the first place. Steam Refund Abuse Then there's the issue of abuse of refunds. A lot of players have tried at cheating the system by attempting to play for no cost. It's a matter of playing for under two hours, and then submitting an application for a refund, then returning the game to be returned. Indie game creators have voiced their displeasure against this kind of practice! The games with the shortest duration suffer the most. In any event, if Valve detects an unusual pattern of activities (too many requests within the span of a few minutes) then you'll be issued an alert. If you disregard it and continue to slack off then you'll be denied the option to get a refund. You can, however, refund games purchased on Steam in the event that their price goes lower and then repurchase them for a lower cost. It's not considered an act of abuse.

Outsource Managed Services: The Smart Choice for Business Growth
https://techmatterglobal.com/outsource-managed-services-for-business-growth/ are tasks that are taken care of by a third party, most often as part of corporate IT solutions. The managed services model is a method of general outsourcing activities to a professional to minimize expenses, increase service quality, or free up internal teams to engage in business-specific chores. A managed service provider (MSP) is a firm that delivers such services. Some of the features of these services include network and infrastructure management, security, and monitoring. MSPs handle administration services regularly, allowing customers to focus on developing their services rather than stressing about long system downtimes or service disruptions. Since each business has a unique configuration, an MSP may offer a wide range of service alternatives. Technical assistance, repair, and subscription services are two categories of MSP products. The main goal of MSP technical support fix services is to remotely fix problems or dispatch professionals to a company’s site to do so. MSPs who offer this service will charge the business for the troubleshooting time and any parts necessary to fix the issue. How Outsource Managed Services Can Help Your Business Grow? More and more small businesses are turning to managed IT services in an effort to cut costs and improve efficiency. You won’t ever have to waste your time and money managing in-house IT specialists or studying the newest technological developments when you have a managed IT service on speed dial. Instead, hiring a third party with the necessary knowledge to handle your company’s IT demands is best. It’s common for business leaders to associate their IT teams with managed service providers (MSPs). They believe that by hiring one on the recommendation of their CIO or IT director, they have authorized an IT remedy. However, MSPs are more than just technical resources that can be utilized while connectivity is unavailable. Trustworthy MSPs provide the answers that companies of all kinds and all market sectors need to realize their maximum expansion potential. MSPs can utilize their IT knowledge to benefit businesses by increasing efficiency, reducing costs, and generating income. The key ways in which a outsourced Managed Service Provider can aid in the expansion of your business are as follows: 1. Increased Efficiency An MSP can help you tailor your company’s IT infrastructure to your needs. Furthermore, it is possible to create an operational environment that increases worker productivity while limiting downtime and the possibility of system breakdowns. Most of the time, your MSP can manage your infrastructure. This saves you time and makes sure that your business runs smoothly. Additionally, many MSPs provide service around the clock, although the majority of in-house IT departments need help to do so. Employees in businesses without MSPs will experience some downtime in the morning, whereas MSPs can fix an overnight network issue before the first workers arrive in the morning. Additionally, you risk losing more money and clients the longer your systems remain down. MSPs work with several clients from various industries. As a direct result, their crew has amassed a wealth of expertise concerning the various technical and business issues that call for IT solutions. MSPs can recommend and assist you in planning and installing workable solutions that can help you maximize the efficiency of your company based on their experience. 2. Cost Savings Using a managed service provider can prevent your business from paying for expensive new hires with specialized skillsets, such as cybersecurity. MSP workers can enhance your in-house staff by covering significant talent gaps. Additionally, MSPs often charge either a per-use cost model or a regular monthly price, allowing you to change the services you require as necessary. You can swiftly scale up the assistance and services required if demand increases. You can easily take a service out of your contract if you no longer need it. Businesses frequently experience significant cost savings in two other areas when partnering with an MSP. MSPs often assist organizations in locating the hardware and software they want at prices below the competition. MSPs have extensive supplier networks and can often get better prices. And because they can, they can assist you in acquiring and deploying applications and solutions that you have resisted for a long time, which can significantly influence your organization. 3. Improved Security The question of when a cybercriminal will target a firm is now the only one that remains in the modern world. And cyberattacks may be disastrous, with the physical, financial, and reputational losses frequently sufficient to drive a corporation out of existence. Even though you can’t stop someone from trying, you can make and use the right cybersecurity plan to make it much less likely that they will succeed. Furthermore, MSPs and MSSPs typically have access to advanced security tools that most firms do not have. You need to protect your company as much as possible from cybersecurity threats, which requires a combination of experience, resources, and focused time. Cybercriminals are only one threat, though. 4. Access to Expertise It’s difficult and time-consuming to hire an IT team, and you will know how capable they are once a critical network issue arises. Some people do exceptionally well on the test. It’s risky to rely on someone else to fix the problem for your business because they might need more time to do so. Even if your IT personnel are knowledgeable and familiar with your systems, you may discover that they need to be equipped to operate or maintain new equipment and techniques when they are added. The biggest problem is that even the best-trained staff members need the depth of expertise and experience of an MSP’s massive team. When your staff lacks certain areas of expertise, an MSP can help. It does not make sense to require an employee to master a new skill set to complete a one-time project. A Managed Service Provider (MSP) provides access to a group of specialists with particular expertise that you otherwise would not have. 5. Scalability The cost of keeping an IT team in-house is high, which is why you often see them understaffed, overworked, and unable to finish all their tasks because they need more time or resources. That is not effective daily and certainly not while your business is trying to grow. Even training one more employee for your IT department can cost thousands of dollars, and there is no assurance that they will stay with the company.  Network scaling requires a lot of planning, personnel, and new hardware. It is an enormous expense for any business and frequently diverts an IT team’s attention away from other crucial functions like security. Managed services can assist you in expanding or upgrading your systems as needed without the need to hire and train personnel that you may not require in the future. How to Choose an Outsource Managed Services Provider? There is a wide selection of options to choose from when it comes to managed IT service providers. Check that you can put your company’s data and security in the hands of the managed IT provider. Before committing to managed IT services, consider the following questions: What kinds of solutions does the provider deliver? What is the scale of the provider? What history do they have? There are multiple sorts of managed IT service companies. More extensive managed IT service providers operate worldwide, but smaller ones may be preferable for your business. Additionally, you should be aware of whether they offer end users 24/7 support. Finding the right managed IT service provider for your business will depend on its specific requirements. For instance, the managed IT provider should have experience in cyber security if your organization places a high priority on data security. IT services can play a crucial role in your company’s expansion by offering outstanding support that will enable you to operate more effectively and free up your time for the priorities most important to your organization. Factors to Consider When Outsource Managed Services Finding the right partner for your Managed Services needs is significant. When selecting a managed services provider, it is essential to consider the following factors: Accessibility Your IT supplier, however, should be available at all hours to monitor your network and ensure its security. Make sure your managed services provider is reachable at all hours of the day, every day of the year, before committing to any agreement. It is critical to your company’s success. Rapid response and service Your service provider must always be accessible and responsive to your requirements and issues.
