3) Security tips – we are not security experts!

I avoid using my mobile phone for all financial transactions, crypto and banking … see

> It’s advised to use a laptop which you ONLY use for cryptos … nothing else!

> At the very least, make sure vyou have decent security software installed … I use Avast

> Keep your PC up-to-date … always take updates ASAP

> Use incognito to navigate to the crypto websites and make sure you’ve got the right address/URL … there are many hijacking sites out there, they often appear in Google ads!

> Use a tool like Lastpass to store your passwords

> Use 2 factor authentication on all sites … either Google Authenticator or Authy … Authy is better if you lose your phone:
