HACKPROOF: How to Beat Fraudsters, Prevent Identity Theft, and Say Goodbye to Cybercrime

23 ratings


You log in to your banking app to discover an unknown deduction. You receive an email about a reset password that you know you did not reset. You start to receive physical mail about strange bills that have not been paid. Such are the harrowing signs of account hacking and identity theft, which costs the average person hundreds per year and whose psychological effects can be compared to experiencing active wartime.

Nor is anyone exempt. The $10 trillion global cybercrime industry preys on the young as well as the old; computer professionals and amateurs; the poor and the wealthy. The only people who resist are those who spend some time to understand how cybercrime works and act with the correct tools and mindset. That is the path toward digital peace-of-mind, and that is what we teach in this course.

In just under four hours we show you how to lock down your digital life with minimal effort. We teach you all of the basics: password management, two-factor authentication, credit freezes, secure payment, proper disposal of documents, and how to recognize fraud. We also teach less common tactics, from choosing unhackable email providers to protection from the most common identity thieves: guests, employees, and even your own family. Most importantly, we teach you how to make these tools and mindsets a permanent part of your daily life.

The cost of ignorance in our digitally-driven world is severe: your wealth and health are at stake. Join cybersecurity consultant Gabriel Custodiet for a transformative four-part class that exposes you to the twisted world of cyber criminality; for only by understanding how it works and how to conquer it will you progress to your goal of becoming HACKPROOF.



  • Four-hour comprehensive course: By the end of this course you will have learned dozens of techniques to lock down your digital life against hacking and identity theft. Computer beginners are welcome.
  • Bonus! Included in this course is a five-page PDF checklist of the 25 most important steps to take to make yourself HACKPROOF, including your financial accounts. This document itself can save you massive headaches.

Isn't the content you're covering in this course already available?

As always, Gabriel spent countless hours digesting the previously-available books, videos, and articles on the topic of hacking and identity theft. What he found was outdated resources, surface-level advice, and suggestions from people who clearly don't understand the methods of current cyber criminals. Many of the techniques in this course are unique. All of them have been carefully vetted and refined to a teachable level by a cybersecurity consultant who does this stuff on a daily basis. Gabriel has put particular emphasis on showing how to turn cybersecurity into daily habits and mindsets instead of presenting disjointed lists of rules that are inevitably forgotten.
