Technology seems to advance faster than our ability to master it, all too often leaving us with questions when seeking to get things done online. That is why, in this digitalised world, we must learn to identify roadmarks and signs that help us operate safely on the web.
“A mí también me pasa” (It also happens to me) is a podcast available in iVoox and Spotify that wants to help you identify situations that seem safe at first sight, but which may not be: How many passwords do you have? How long has it been since you updated them? Have you ever given someone your bank details by phone? Do you have antivirus software on your cell phone? Do you accept all cookies?
Journalist Gemma Nierga and technology expert Antoni Noguera bring us real stories related to all the technological challenges we all face every day. Over the different episodes, we will learn how to act to avoid risks and not fall for any type of fraud. Because this is something which affects us all: to Gemma, to Toni, to you, a “It also happens to me”.
