10-5-2022 Under the Computer Hood UG - CA

I spent yesterday evening remotely visiting with club members in San Diego.
Evening sessions in CA are always pretty late for my lifestyle since I'm a very early riser.
I was however very happy to again see and interact with old friends.
The presentation was well received and followed by a Q&A session where we discussed
the importance of VPN's, cookies and what they are. We also talked about reducing the
sales popups in Avast Free and how to adjust the personal privacy settings in Avast.
Today I received links to two files that represented the recording of this meeting.
I merged the two files into one video which is available at https://youtu.be/z_MnVBopRVM

This is the entire presentation including the Q&A session. The only editing I did was to clean up the
merge points of the two original files. I eliminated the overlap.
Total length of the video is 58.28 min. the Q&A session starts at 48.20 min.

A friendly group of very interested folks waiting to learn more about cyber security.
The presentation was well received and after the presentation we discussed the Avast Secure Browser,
Avast One, and the club had a Halloween Quiz prepared were we answered questions about many of
the traditions associated with that holiday. The club learned something about security and I learned something
about Halloween.

11-1-2022 Green Valley Recreation Computer Club, AZ

This afternoon I remotely visited the members of GNR. This was a hybrid meeting that was well received.
The club members asked questions on the following topic after the presentation:
Spam - block, report or both. syncing files to the cloud or image backup or both?
Two factor authentication, VPN, how good is Avast One Essential.
If I answered some of those questions to the members satisfaction,
Avast should get some new customers.

11-3-2022 Wisconsin All-Computer Users , WI

This evening I spent some ZOOM time with the WAUC members in Milwaukee, WI
The meeting was a hybrid meeting where most attended in person and some members joined via ZOOM.
I had joined early and found out the those attending in person had no internet access at the church they used
for  the meeting place. The suggestion to use a phone as a hotspot solved the problem.
After the presentation the members asked questions on the following topics: Identifying spam emails and
marking them as such so the wind up in the Spam folder not the In-box, what does Avast's Smart Scan check.
I was also asked if there was a way to check a website to see if might be malicious.
There are websites that actually do that service by seeing if the website is currently considered malicious
by many AV programs. Virus Total and URLVoid are just two of those types of websites.
