HTC invites you to make a resolution worth keeping in 2022. It’s time to make your privacy and security of your online information a priority. From online banking login information to streaming service passwords, online scammers are on a never-ending hunt for unprotected online users.
Whether you’re a small-business owner, entrepreneur, or a casual online shopper and web surfer, you need to protect your intangible online properties. A study by online security company McAfee reveals the average American has over $55,000 in digital assets. Use the list below to consider the websites and platforms you use via the internet:
Restaurant delivery services
Streaming service (i.e.: Netflix, Hulu, HTC TV MAX, etc.)
Subscription services (i.e.: music, fitness, or education apps)
Unlike your physical possessions, digital resources are intangible and difficult to protect without taking the proper security measures. The personal information stored on these websites, in the cloud, or on your device is incredibly valuable to online thieves. With access to your sensitive information, online scammers can sell your information, damage your credit, reputation, or business long before you’re even aware your information has been stolen.
This year, resolve to protect your information, money, and personal data from online hackers. The good news is residential HTC Internet members receive free online protection powered by Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security software. The security suite provides the most comprehensive, intuitive protection for your personal data so you can shop, bank or browse with confidence. Internet members can download the antivirus software on up to three devices by logging into the My Account app or website. Step-by-step directions can be found here.

The Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) Scholarship Program annually awards scholarships to an exceptional group of rural students for their first year of college or vocational school. All applicants require sponsorship by an NTCA—The Rural Broadband Association member company to be eligible.
This year, HTC is assisting in taking applications for the FRS Scholarship program. Each scholarship is valued at $2,000, and funds can be used to cover expenses related to attending a two- or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school. As the telecommunications service provider for Horry, Georgetown, and Marion counties, HTC will contribute an additional $500 to the scholarship if a student from our area is selected to receive the award, bringing the total scholarship to $2,500.
The new year means new personal goals. If one of yours is to lose weight or get in better shape, check out this Ted Talk video about keeping it simple (and attainable) when it comes to exercise, nutrition and overall health.
In addition to exercising, the best way to get (and stay) healthy is through proper nutrition. Check out the link below from the American Heart Association, which offers tips and recipes to help you make better choices when it comes to fueling your body. Get tips!
