Unpair Ring Video Door Bell Attach to New Wifi Network

We had some issues with the Ring Video Door bell. When someone came to the door or rang the door bell it would take a long time to respond.

Since we have more than one Wifi, the issue was that the Ring Video Door bell was paired with the wifi that was furthest away. This was causing a slow response. So I needed to do the following to fix it:
1 – Detach the Video Door bell from the front door.
2 – Remove the device from the Ring App (unpair)
3 – Pair the Device again & Hit the orange button on the Video Door bell
4 – Choose the new Wifi connection
5 – Test our the Video Door bell & reattach it to the door

Bonus: Apply all the old settings to the video door bell via the app.

Resume Impact (part 1 of 2) keywords and impact

Mr. Eric Lee said, “Very informative and helpful video. Looking forward on the video for your tips on making a résumé. More power!”

What I have done with my résumé is to focus on content. I focus on two main things in the content:
1 – Impact statements
2 – Keywords in the industry

On the very top of the resume, I add my highest certification, and/or degree next to my name. This allows for an immediate impact because the employer sees that immediately.

I make sure that the employer or recruiter has a way to contact me by putting my email and/or phone number up top.

I place the title of the job I am going for as the title of the résumé so that the résumé is more of a statement of what I am going for rather than what I am currently doing. Normally, the title of the job I am going for and the one I am currently doing are different names for the same work.

I make sure that all my primary achievements are on the top of the résumé. If I have a huge amount of experience, a PHD, a certification, then I put that up top under my name for impact.

I put impact statements through out my job descriptions, so they can see what an effective worker I am.

I add keywords from my industry. For example, the keyword “DIACAP” is used exclusively in my career field, so I make sure I add that in the impact statement of my job descriptions.

What is equally important is to advertise the resume. Upload it to as many job sites and job search engines as you can (especially Linkedin).

 

 

Privacy is Dead – be faster than the slowest guy

A viewer on Youtube commented on one of my videos: “Privacy is dead. The minute we are on social network using our real names or not, personal information is already out there floating somewhere, somehow…”

I agree. If someone really wants your personal information and you have put posted something on the Internet, there is a good chance that they can get it. The more you post, the more exposure you have. Even if you use a fake name and fake address.

There is no such as 100% security or privacy. But you can have some level of control that makes it harder for attacker to get you. If you have some controls in place attackers are more likely to go after softer targets.

If it take attacker a longer time to go after you then it does to go after someone easier, they will usually choose the softer target.

Protecting Your Identity from Crazy People Personally identifiable information

As we get more popular we encounter crazier and crazier people. This video is an example of why you should be careful about posting your personally identifiable information online.

Do not use your real name – With your real name, people may be able to find out your address.  Do not show your physical address – Imagine what someone can do if they know exactly where you live?
Do not advertise your real birthday – Your date of birth is another bit of information that will help identify you.

Scam – Dating Site Need Plane Ticket Money

A common scam on some foreign dating sites is for people to ask for money for a plane ticket. They will claim that they are from America or Europe but are stuck in another country so they need your help to come closer to you. They claim that when they get there they will pay you back.

You should know that this is a common scam. Do not fall for it. If you send them the money for the plane ticket, you will not see the again.

How to Identify Scammer Profiles with Google Images

Ever wonder if the person you are talking to on a dating site is real? Their profile looks too good to be true. Their profile pictures are all glamour shots. Or maybe you want to get serious but you just want to be sure that this person is who they say they are.

With this little trick, you can gather more information about who they are just to make sure. Here are the steps:

1. Get their profile picture
2. If you had to screen shot their image, copy it to paint and crop it
3. Upload the image to Google Images
4. Compare the images/information you find with what is is on the dating profile.

Sometimes scammers use the images of musicians/actors/models from their home country. When they do this, it is pretty easy to identify the fakes because it will pop up all over the place. In this video I give you an example of how to do it.

remove malware with malwarebytes

Remove Malware with Malwarebytes Free

I am the resident computer guy.  So I get lots of requests to fix computers.  It is now so easy to remove most malware that I am really surprised people still ask me.  Here is how I remove malware on most systems.

Step 1.  Download the Trial Version of malwarebytes

You can get the trial version for 30-days.  It is great software so I encourage you to buy it – https://www.malwarebytes.com/  Download the free trial on your desktop or somewhere you can easily find it.

Step 2.  Restart your system in “Safe Mode”

Once malwarebytes is downloaded on your system, restart the computer and hit the “F8” key to over and over until you are given the option to boot the system in a different state. Select “Safe Mode”

Step 3.  Install Malwarebytes

Double click Malwarebytes, and follow the instructions.

Step 4. Start Malwarebytes

How long this takes depends on how much data Malwarebytes has to go through and how fast you system is.  Some things will take more than normal antimalware software.  Rootkits for example, are a little harder to get rid of.  For these, I have found it helpful to google the errors, warning banners and symptoms you are seeing to find someone else who had the same issue and fixed it.  Some are so bad you will have to search for an answer on a separate system.

Good luck to you.
