SCCS is a counseling service– we are not IT specialists. We encourage clients and potential clients to protect themselves and their computers by having adequate virus/malware software protection, researching any suspicious links or apps, and by using a Virtual Private Network (VPN), to name a few suggestions.
By downloading any apps or clicking on any of our forms or links, you accept the associated risks, (and benefits!) that come with utilizing online tools and services.
