TUCSON, Ariz. -- A lot of us will be spending time with parents and grandparents during this holiday season, and it's a great time to give them a tech checkup.

Take a visit over the holidays as an opportunity to look at their account settings. Make sure important info like their birthday and address are set to private or friends only.

A simple way to do that is through Facebook's privacy checkup by clicking on the question mark at the top right corner of their account page.

Make sure to take a look at their cell phone, download an app to block robocalls, or set up a caller id protection service through their cell carrier. Also, be sure to show them how to block calls from suspicious numbers.
