AURORA, Ill. – To equip residents with information about how to use technology safely, state Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, is hosting a digital safety seminar at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 21 at the Eola Road Branch of the Aurora Library, located at 555 S. Eola Road in Aurora.

“The internet makes our lives easier in so many ways, but also gives criminals access to a wealth of personal information that they can use to steal your identity,” said Kifowit. “It’s important to be aware of how to protect your passwords, credit card details and banking information in order to protect yourself.”

 Kifowit will welcome a digital security expert for a discussion on protecting your privacy, securing your computer and mobile devices, keeping your online accounts safe and avoiding the latest social media, email and telephone scams. For more information or to RSVP, please contact 630-585-1308 or

“Because technology is always changing and new internet scams show up all the time, keeping your personal data private and secure is an ongoing challenge,” said Kifowit. “I encourage area residents to join us for this informative seminar on how to stay safe online.”
