I’m glad I found you. I said this to my wife - without Mirthy, my life would be far less richer than it is now.

Event Description

Expert tips and advice on all things digital - from avoiding scams, to saving money online, to getting the most out of your phone. Join Jude and Nicola from How Do I?, the UK-based helpline for all your digital questions.


Avoiding Scams: Advice and Tips (13th July)

Scammers are sneakier than ever, and with more of our world online than ever before, there are always new ways that they’re trying to catch us out. In this workshop, we’ll share our “5 top tips for beating scammers”, as well as showing you how to spot some tell-tale signs of digital scams.

By the end of the event, we aim to leave you feeling reassured and empowered - scammers won’t stand a chance against you!


Saving Money Online: Free alternatives and low-cost services (20th July)

The internet is full of smart solutions to problems we never even knew we had before. Whether it’s online photo storage, virus protection, or word and spreadsheet programmes, there are hundreds of ways to spend money on your devices.

In this workshop, we’ll show you some of the excellent free or very cheap alternatives to some of the most popular paid services, all 100% legal. We’ll also show you how to look for free or cheap alternatives on your own, saving you hundreds in the process.


How to get more out of your phone (27th July)

We all know that smartphones are handy, but have you ever considered other ways that the mini computer in your pocket could make your life a little bit easier?

In this workshop we’ll show you some easy-to-learn skills that will help you get around your phone quicker, deal with unsolicited callers, plus learn about some really useful apps that will impress your friends!


  • Duration: 60 mins
  • Online Zoom event: Join from your computer, phone or tablet (a recording will be available)

Meet the Host, How Do I?

We’re Jude and Nicola, the founders of How Do I? We used to get a lot of calls from our parents and their friends, asking us how on Earth they make their bloomin’ computer do what they want whilst steering clear of the growing number of scam attempts.

We realised that while the world has become more digital, the support for people to understand and interact with it hasn’t kept up.

And so, we created How Do I? – a digital support helpline that is patient, clear and friendly-enough for our mums, dads, friends and you!
