Businesses have a lot of technology to manage. While some organizations have an in-house IT department to manage it, many small businesses are limited due to location factors, budget concerns, and countless other variables. In the past, organizations would turn to break-fix IT management for all of their technology issues, but trends in IT maintenance have given rise to a more popular and more sustainable way for small businesses to get the technology maintenance and management they need.
Subscription-based solutions are quite popular these days, and Microsoft Office 365 is perhaps one of the most important ones on the market. However, the services provided by Office 365 are contingent upon successfully renewing the subscription, making it critical that the user understands how this process works.

If you’re looking to stream or download blockbuster movies when they’re still in theaters, you probably shouldn’t. Why not? Well, first and foremost, this is called piracy and it is illegal. Secondly, any “free downloads” you do find will likely be a scam.
Recently, a popular search engine result for Avengers: Endgame claims to offer either a download or a full viewing of the blockbuster hit. The movie even begins streaming automatically, but you’re prompted to make an account shortly after. Creating an account is free, but you soon find that you must “validate” your account using your credit card details.
Don’t be fooled! If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Remember the following to stay safe when browsing online:
- Never download anything from an unfamiliar or questionable website. Especially if the download could be stolen, and therefore illegal, material.
- Never give information to a website you can’t trust. Even if you don’t enter credit card data, simply creating an account makes your email address more vulnerable to future scams–especially phishing attacks.
- Never reuse passwords. If you create an account on a dangerous site, scammers will try to use your email and password combination to break into your other accounts.
Stop, Look, and Think. Don't be fooled.
