To say the most (or something like it), this latest news of iPhone vulnerability deeply alarmed all of us. Or if it hasn’t, it should. It’s a reminder that threats are ever-present, potentially catastrophic — and not just for Android users anymore.
This back-to-school iPhone security post is presented by Dashlane.
Headed off to college? Hopefully you’re well-outfitted with great hardware, cool accessories and all the productivity apps you can ignore while skipping class. But there’s more to worry about than pimping out your gear. Back-to-school prep also means beefing up iPhone security.
It’s safe to say that most of us could do with a little less screen time. In our daily lives, it’s easy to lose track of the cumulative staring that takes place. That’s a particular problem when we’re traveling — after all, the more time spent on your phone, the less time spent in the moment.
When it comes to summer, travel is the reason for the season. To help you get the most out of your wanderings, we rounded up some of our favorite Mac apps for taking summer travel to the next level.

If you’ve ever read our website (hi), you know we’re big fans of virtual private networks. A solid VPN can keep your online activity secure and anonymous by preventing malware and trackers. It also can bypass annoying location restrictions on streaming content. Anytime you use a public Wi-Fi network, you face possible threats to your security online.
When it comes to data security, even smart people make this one incredibly stupid mistake: They use the same password on multiple websites.

Luckily this is one headache that’s easy to avoid.
New Year’s resolutions are sure easy to make. But even the healthiest commitments can be hard to keep over time. Luckily, any resolution to be safer online is easy to stick with — when you get the right tool.
If your New Year’s resolution is to get fit with Apple Watch in 2019, maybe I can help. I know from personal experience that it’s never too late to get in shape.
I’m a middle-aged guy, and up until a few years ago, I lived a very unhealthy lifestyle. I never exercised, I only ate junk food, and I was seriously overweight. Today, I have a six-pack, I run seven miles a day, and I even write about fitness for Cult of Mac.
The secret to my transformation is something I call “The Ratchet.” It’s a way of running that makes it so easy to get started that pretty much anyone who can walk can do it. All you need is your Apple Watch and a pair of running shoes.
So if you’re thinking about New Year’s resolutions for 2019, why not give The Ratchet a try? Here’s how.
