Have you ever wondered where to start when it comes to your digital life? Ever had to worry about routers, or set up parental controls, or backup your data? Sometimes, it seems like digital technology is designed to be deliberately confusing. That’s why we launched DigitalGuyde – to cut through the jargon so everyone can take control of their digital lives.
From security to home media servers, VPNs to cloud storage: we’ll explain it all and give you great product recommendations in a language you can actually understand!
‘Make tech simple, stupid!’ is our motto. What do we mean by that? We think that technology doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s becoming increasingly important that we safeguard our digital lives, now that so much of modern life relies upon it. We want to hand back the power to you, demystifying your digital life so that you can make wise decisions.
We do that by providing you with in-depth product reviews, comparisons, and guides. No detail is too small – we’ll break it down in a way that is simple to understand. We want to be useful to everyone, from seasoned tech geeks to total newbies. We’ll arm you with the information you need to know before you make a purchase.
Here’s what we believe in at DigitalGuyde:
Honesty is the Best Policy
We’ll tell you exactly what we think of a product – for better or for worse! If we dislike a product, we’ll tell you exactly why, and point you in the direction of something that works better. If we like a product, we’ll explain exactly why that is, to help you decide if it will suit your needs or not.
Digital Safety is Key
So, what is digital safety? Simply put, it’s the things you put in place to protect your data when you’re online. We believe this is really important, as digital privacy and security are under threat now more than ever. We cover the latest developments in home digital safety, including password management software, parental controls, and antimalware (don’t worry if you don’t know what that is – we’ll tell you what it is and why it’s important!).
Tech Doesn’t Have to be Complicated
Nearly everyone uses technology every single day. Whether you use a computer at work, or you check your emails on the go, or your kids use a tablet or mobile device to watch TV, you’re going to encounter technology all the time. So why is it so hard to understand what it all means? It shouldn’t be that way – and we’re determined to break it down so that everyone can understand it.
What Will You Get from Us?
Here’s what you’ll get from us:
Our product reviews are so detailed that we leave no stone unturned. We’ll give you the lowdown on a product, from tech specs to pros and cons, and we’ll explain exactly why we like or dislike the product. We’ll tell you why it works (or doesn’t) and give you a good idea of whether or not it suits your needs. If you’re considering buying something new, come and check with us first – you might find that we’ve covered what you’re looking at in more detail than you could find elsewhere online.

We’ll compare their specifications, their features, and their pricing, in detail, to help you make the right decision.

I am a skilled and experienced digital marketing professional. My educational background is Marketing which also includes digital marketing.

What’s the biggest mistake you see a lot of people make, in regards to practicing digital safety?
There are several major mistakes that people can make, but one of the biggest is the lack of a comprehensive Information security plan. After all, data security isn’t just a matter of IT task; it concerns the entire company and it can become an overall business problem. Also, you shouldn’t rely solely on third-parties antivirus programs. Instead, you should build an in-house security system.
What digital program could you not live without?
Pfff, there are many digital programs that I couldn’t live without such as Kaspersky which ensures my cybersecurity, both Office and Google suites, communication and work-related programs like Slack and Zoom, Cloud storage platforms, etc. But, considering the fact that I work remotely for more than 5 years now, communication and work platforms like Zoom, Slack, and Asana are my number one priorities.
What’s your favorite piece of tech currently?
I would say that my SanDisk flash drive with huge storage space is my favorite right now because it helps me with my work. It makes transferring files an effortless process. It also backs up numerous photos from my phone.
What’s one tip you’d give to someone looking to make their way into remote work?
Remote work was always the dream for me, and when I finally achieved it, a few years back, I felt so relieved. However, it also involves a lot of focus and organization on your part. You won’t have to necessarily get out of bed as early as you did when you’re a corporatist, but you’ll also have to resist many temptations that could distract you or interrupt your work which leads to lower productivity. So, make up your own flexible schedule and try to stick to it as much as you can. Create a work space that’s far from any gadgets such as TV and play stations so that you can focus on work during those hours. It’s important to create and follow a routine, take breaks during the day, and leave home and work in a workplace hub or quite coffee shop, once in a while, for a change of scenery.
