The first day of classes is just over two weeks away in Door and Kewaunee Counties. Computer experts say the final days of summer vacation are a good time to ensure their kid's high-tech gadgets are safe and secure. Erin Helgeson, co-owner of Quantum PC Services in Sturgeon Bay, says a check-up of home computers, I-Pads and Chromebooks anti-viral software is a must.
Helgeson says similar security measures should be taken with smartphones. That can be done with some simple discussions between parents and children and using apps to prevent social media access when it's appropriate.
Helgeson says the best resources on smartphone security would be input from other parents who've used parental controls and apps for their kids.
