I’ve got a big secret. Well, OK, maybe I’ve let it slip on my show once or twice … We’re launching a brand-new website next month!
That’s right, all the tech news, security alerts and digital advice you trust from Komando.com, with a great new look. Our last redesign was in 2014, and I’ve gotten lots of feedback over the years from my loyal listeners and readers. I listened to what you had to say and your feedback played a big factor in creating the new website. I’m so thankful to all of you for sharing your thoughts with me — I built this website for you!
I’ll be honest, this project has been a real labor of love. It’s been in the works for months, and I can’t wait for you to see it come to life in a few weeks. If you’re not already on my mailing list, click or tap here to sign up for my free newsletters. You’ll be the first to know when the new Komando.com goes live.
My team and I have thought of everything to give you the best experience ever. Keep reading and you’ll get a sneak peek at the new look and all my favorite new features. Here are three reasons you’ll love the new website.
1. Fewer ads
I get it — ads are annoying. You asked for less of them, and I listened. Read the latest breaking security alerts, helpful how-tos and everything digital without as many ads getting in the way. The ads you will see will be focused on what you like and have shown interest in.
You know, I can’t remove them completely. Those ads are the reason I can keep giving you so much great advice, helpful tips and tech news for free. But you will notice the difference and love the new layout!
2. A clean, fresh look
We’ve redesigned Komando.com from the ground up. It’s all the content you love with a whole new design, new categories and larger photos and videos — and I have to say, it really looks great.
Nothing has changed when it comes to keeping you safe. This year is the worst yet for your privacy, and we’ll keep sharing all the news you need to know to protect yourself. From data breaches to malicious apps to scams, find breaking tech news and security alerts in the News section.
As always, I want to help you use all your gadgets like a pro. After all, who wants to read a long, boring user manual? On the new site, the How-Tos section is home to trusted tips and DIY guides to help you get the most out of your everyday tech, along with essential steps to protect your privacy.
Find product recommendations, fun giveaways and contests, and special discounts in the Deals section. That’s also where you can find my library of eBooks and sales on amazing tech I’ve found just for you.
Sometimes you need more personal advice, though. Sending me your digital lifestyle questions is even easier on the new Komando.com. Visit the Contact page to submit your question. Book a time to call in to my show to talk to me live on the air.
Feeling a little shy? Send me your question via email. I read them all, even if I can’t personally respond to every one. If the question doesn’t make it on the show, the answer will likely make its way in an article or video on Komando.com or in one of my newsletters.
The new site will even recognize you as a Komando Community member! That’s right, if you’re logged into the Komando Community, you’ll automatically be logged in when you visit Komando.com. And if you click “sign in,” (located at the top right hand corner of the top navigation), you will be automatically logged in to the Komando Community. No need to sign in twice!
Not a member yet? Tap the yellow Join the Community button to sign up. Watch or listen to my show any time, build your own social profile, get helpful answers to your tech questions in the forum and so much more. There’s no better time to join Komando Community than today, and you can be among the first to experience this brand new feature.
3. Easier-to-find content
Gone are the days of designing a website just for people sitting at a computer. You look for the help you need and the news you trust on the go. I know, because I do too.
More than 60% of you visit Komando.com on your phone and tablet, and I want you to find exactly what you’re looking for — quickly. Access articles, videos, my free podcasts, reviews and deals handpicked just for you from any device.
You’ll love the new and improved search function. Search for the topics you’re most interested in, and find what you’re looking for easily. You can even filter by article type. Looking for tips on how to get the most out of your Android smartphone? Done. Want to read the latest Windows 10 news? You got it.
Finding your local radio station is so simple on the new site, too. “The Kim Komando Show” airs on more than 400 stations across the country — use the Find a Station feature to find out where you can listen. Just enter your ZIP code or city and state. You can even add the show to your calendar so you don’t miss a minute.
