Tech Friend by ExpressVPN

You probably have that one friend you call or text whenever you have a question about technology. And they might be sick of you by now—but that’s O.K., because we’re here to help.

Pose a question to Tech Friend, and you might see your question answered in a Q&A-style article, which we’ll publish regularly.

What kind of questions can I submit?

You’re free to ask any question about cybersecurity, privacy, or everyday technology. Here are some examples: Does Incognito mode prevent ad tracking? Are there ways to avoid facial recognition? I have high-quality routers at home, so why would my Wi-Fi be so slow?
