A GOOD PLACE TO START, WHEN IT COMES TO BEING SAFE
Safety begins at home, but it’s best if you can take your safety with you. ADT is now on the Go and in your pocket at all times, offering real protection no matter where you are with this new service called ADT-Go. Having ADT on the Go provides you and your family with real protection backed by 24/7 live support. Let’s face it, we constantly put ourselves in unsafe situations every day without even thinking about it. With this new service from ADT that provides 24/7 live support, you have a companion with you wherever you go from your daily commute to enjoying a night out. Additional benefits include SOS Emergency Response, family location sharing, crash detection, driving reports, and more. The free download is currently available at the app store for Apple or Android. You don’t have to be an ADT customer to use it. It’s a great way to stay safe wherever you go.

HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO PROTECT OUR IDENTITY
Protecting your identity is one of the most important things that you can do. Most data breaches involve weak, default, or stolen passwords. The best way to protect your passwords and personal information is with Dashlane’s password manager. It’s easy to use and ensures you’ll never forget another password or get locked out of an account again. Dashlane’s instant security alerts quickly notify you if one of your accounts is compromised or at risk. Best part – it’s free for life on a single device, or you can access your passwords on unlimited devices with Dashlane Premium. It’s impossible to remember all your passwords and it’s even worse if you want to change them frequently, but Dashlane does it for you so you can rest assured your personal information is safe.
 
With Dashlane, you’ll have a unique password for every account ensuring that even if one account is breached, other accounts will be secure. According to Dashlane, the average user has over 150 accounts, so it’s practically impossible to remember every password. Additionally, people using Dashlane save up to 50 hours a year by using the autofill feature, and the digital wallet allows for express checkouts across all websites.

SUGGESTIONS FOR STAYING SAFE DURING SEVERE WEATHER
While it is National Safety Month, June also is the start of Hurricane Season. When these big storms roll in you have to be prepared to stay safe so my advice is to download the AccuWeather app. I always have it on my phone. It gives you 24/7 access to the most accurate real time weather information. It's the world’s largest and most trusted provider of weather forecasts and warnings.  With MinuteCast, you can even get minute-by-minute precipitation forecasts for up to 120 minutes out, so you can better plan. It can really be a lifesaver during a storm. For more information, visit www.AccuWeather.com
