Baffled by your phone or computer? Help is at hand

by Ray Duffill

Did you get a new device (a tablet, laptop or mobile phone) for Christmas?

A series of free workshops organised by East Riding College in Hedon will help get you up and running and using your device effectively.

It will help you safely share documents and photos between devices.

The organisers are keen to emphasise that you do not need any previous knowledge of computer skills to get started.

The Hedon Digital Hub at Hedon Methodist Church on Church Lane will host the weekly workshops, which start on Tuesday, January 17, from 10am to 11.30am.

You can find out more and book free places by emailing [email protected] or by calling 01482 896121.

The workshops will help you set up your device straight out of the box.

They will also show you how to set up email accounts that can be made safer with strong passwords, advise on making your devices safe and secure, and help you share information with others online, with safety and privacy being at the forefront.
