Here at ConferenceCall.co.uk, we like to keep you updated with the latest cyber security tips and let you know if there are any scams you should be aware of. Although we’re a free conference call provider, we want our customers to stay safe online at all times.

The coronavirus crisis has seen more of us working from home than ever before. And while this is usually seen as a positive for work/life balance, lockdown restrictions have meant it can seem more oppressive than ever – few of us like the daily commute, but for some it might now seem like a welcome respite from the routine of wake up, work, sleep.

The good news is that local lockdown restrictions aren’t (yet) as strict as those we saw earlier in the year- gyms are still open and trips to public  spaces are still very much encouraged, even if the weather suggest otherwise.

Exercise is not only could it be the key to long term health, it could also help to keep your work/life balance in check.  Even if you can’t escape the shackles of your workspace, it doesn’t mean you can’t limber up.

Every time you interact online you’re adding to your digital footprint – that virtual record of what you did, who you did it with, and when you did it.

Whether you’re buying something from a web store, checking your bank balance, updating a social status, or even just typing a question into a search engine or leaving a comment on a blog (all comments welcome below), your digital footprint is affected.

What this means is anyone can track your digital footprint and make fairly accurate assumptions on your lifestyle – anyone who has the knowledge and the inclination, that is.

And although most of us won’t have a back-story worth bothering with, not to mention nothing to hide, it’s still a little disconcerting to think someone could tap into your lifestyle should they wish to.

It’s all but impossible to completely cover your online tracks, but if you want to give it a go, here are some of the steps you could take to try and disappear completely…

“The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men/Gang aft agley” so wrote Robert Burns in 1785 – and it’s a verse that has stood the test of time, as no matter how through your plans, things can still go awry.

And although using ConferenceCall.co.uk to set up a conference call for up to 100 participants could hardly be easier, there’s always the possibility not everything will go to plan and some people might miss the call.

Even setting a free SMS reminder isn’t fail-safe.

And while we can’t guarantee not everyone will be able to make the conference call, we can guarantee that no-one need miss a word thanks to our free conference call recording facility.

You can now record your conference calls to distribute to those that couldn’t attend or even just for archiving purposes – all free of charge and without the need for any extra equipment.

Here’s how…
