You might have heard the word before, but most people don't know what a "bit" actually is. It's a unit of measurement for computers. A bit is actually just a one or a zero. That seems like it might not be useful, but a bit makes up everything we do on computers. Eight bits equals one byte, which is usually used to represent a letter. These ones and zeros are also known as "binary code," due to having only two values.

When shopping for a router you'll see markings like "N300" or "AC1200" and even the new "AX3200," all advertising the speed of the router. However, buying a faster router doesn't mean your devices are going to work any faster. The numbers on these markings stand for the speed, megabits per second. The letter stands for the frequency used.

Site not trusted in Chrome
Awhile back Chrome changed the standards on their web browser as to what they considered a "safe site."
When you navigate to certain websites in Chrome you may get a page that pops up that says that the website you are trying to access is unsafe, or the security certificate is invalid and you shouldn't continue because someone may be able to get your information.
