Throughout the year, you constantly extend your cyber footprint. You do this in a variety of ways such as paying bills, shopping, using social media, and in many other ways.  Cleaning your technology and cyber footprint removes the clutter from your life while at the same time protecting you and your loved ones.  Here is a checklist you can use to help you clean up your digital footprint and declutter your technology.




  • Review your passwords, updating them as needed, and ensuring they are strong.
  • Establish a unique password for each account.
  • Consider using a password manager if you haven’t in the past.
  • Remember to use Multi-Factor Authentication on accounts wherever it is available. Especially on accounts that have financial information such as online banking, credit card, and retirement accounts.




  • Review all your email accounts
  • Organize folders of emails that you want to keep. Delete and purge emails that you no longer need.
  • Be sure that there is no personally identifiable information stored in your inbox.
  • Review and update your contacts. Delete contacts that are no longer necessary or current.
  • Review and update email filters to send spam and other unwanted e-marketing messages directly to trash or another folder.
  • Enable MFA whenever possible.


Social Media


  • Review your social media accounts and associated privacy settings.
  • Review any photos or videos and delete those that you no longer need or want to make viewable.
  • Search yourself online and see what comes up.
  • Don’t just delete a social media app that you’re no longer using, delete your entire profile
  • Be sure you are familiar with the privacy settings in your social media accounts.



Cleaning Your Desk


  • Shred old and unnecessary paperwork.
  • Ensure paper documents that contain personally identifiable information, financial information, or other sensitive information is properly stored and locked up.
  • Don’t write down passwords or security answers on paper and leave them out.





  • Review your backup routines.
  • Review your backup schedule, and what you’re backing up.
  • Test your backups and validate they are being successfully completed.
  • Make sure you can restore from a backup.
  • Review your backup location and media.



Update Devices


  • Make sure all applications, operating systems, and devices (computer, phones, tablets, smart devices, TVs, etc.) are updated, and are set to update on a regular basis.





  • Properly shred or destroy all unnecessary paper documents or files.
  • Dispose of old electronic equipment (laptops, monitors, phones, tablets, smart devices, etc.)


Following this checklist will help make sure that your devices are running as efficiently as possible, your accounts are updated, and your information is safe.

Ultimate It Guys has been the Cameron Housing Authority’s IT company since 2017. I couldn’t ask for a better one. The staff is quick to help & very professional. They will work with you until your problem has been solved. We will definitely use them in the future.

The Nevada Housing Authority has been doing business with Ultimate IT Guys since June 2016. Prior to that time, we struggled with good tech support and did not have anyone in house capable of taking on that responsibility. We have had a very positive experience with Ultimate IT Guys and their tech support staff.

They make themselves available anytime for the support and training needed and keep us with the most recent updates. I have enjoyed the webinars and now have access for myself and the staff to those webinars that we miss. The value for the service provided by Ultimate IT Guys is worth a look at for your agency. You will find them customer service driven, have the ability to problem solve and easy to communicate with.

Hi I am Joan Wright, I am the Executive Director at McGregor Housing Authority. I have been with Ultimate IT Guys since 2017.

We are from a small community and we just don’t have much for computer support in this area. I met him at Texas Housing Association and he has done a wonderful job for us. His service is 24/7, all I have to do is pick up a phone and call him. One of his support staff is always happy to work with us. I have all my faith in Ultimate IT Guys they do a wonderful job.

McGregor Housing Authority

We have been very pleased and impressed with the services and product advice we have received from Ultimate IT Guys.

They provided a big picture view of our business risk, then broke it down into actionable details through the assessments and the reports they provided to us. All very professional and informative but still in layman's language in a way that anyone can understand it.

Executive Director
Lubbock TX Housing Authority

Ultimate IT Guys have truly been a big help to Trinidad Housing Authority for the past 5 years. From keeping our computer systems up to date and virus free, to their excellent customer service. When we have an issue with our computer software or hardware, there is never a wait and they are always there to help, and at very reasonable prices.

I highly recommend the Ultimate IT Guys to anyone who needs IT support services. They have consistently given us excellent service at a reasonable price.

They know the needs of PHA’s, and are particularly well suited to filling the IT needs of housing authorities who are not large enough to have their own in-house staff. They can do virtually all the work they need to do remotely, so there is no waiting for an IT tech to show up. Our experience with The Ultimate IT Guys has all been positive, they have been a pleasure to do business with!

Executive Director
Overton Texas Housing Authority

I am very pleased with the service Mr. Davis and his team at Ultimate IT Guys provide. He is professional, thorough, and supports our industry with a high degree of integrity. He is available and has always helped me with IT problems in a timely manner. I feel I am very knowledgeable about technology and could do some of the same tasks Mr. Davis performs, however it is beneficial to me that my staff can call him with issues so we can be more productive and focus on housing needs instead of computer/technology related issues and back-ups.

I would highly recommend Mr. Davis and his company.

Thank you,

Kimberly Gholson
Executive Director
Waurika Housing Authority
