About Us

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!

Our Mission

‘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.

Our Values

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:

Product Reviews

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.

Here are some of our favourite reviews:

Product Comparisons

Sometimes, two products may seem very similar, and it can be really hard to tell the difference between them. In our product comparisons, we’ll explore each product in detail and then compare them directly, so if you just can’t make a decision, we can help you see which is the best. We’ll compare their specifications, their features, and their pricing, in detail, to help you make the right decision.

Here’s some of our favourite product comparisons:

Product Guides

Sometimes if you’re looking for something new, you might not even know where to start. That’s where our product guides come in. Say you’re looking for a cloud storage service – we’ll explain exactly what they are, what kind of features you want to look for, and then give you a rundown of the best ones on the market.

Here’s a few of our great product guides:

How-to Guides

We also like to guide our readers in certain subjects. So, if there’s a technological trick that we want to share, we’ll post it here.
