We believe it's critical that our instructional and other supportive content is as accurate as possible. We believe a great way to do this is to have our how-to and related content reviewed by a dedicated team of specialists that we call our Technology Review Board.

We are the first and, last we checked, only tech site to use a Technology Review Board. Sure, it's extra work for us, but it keeps our readers up-to-date and confident in our ability to provide the information they need, so we're happy to go the extra mile.

Our Technology Review Board

Lifewire's Technology Review Board is a team of certified technology experts who ensure our content is technically accurate and reflects the latest updates for the products you use.

This is an additional review layer we add in on top of the expert writers and editors who initially create our articles. In addition to reviewing new articles, Technology Review Board members also regularly review previously published content on the site to be certain it stays timely and that instructions are updated to work properly for newer versions of devices and software.

Our Technology Review Board members are certified in numerous areas across the world of technology. They use their experience, certification, education, and original research to review and provide specific feedback on the instructional and editorial content on Lifewire to help ensure it meets our strict quality standards.

Meet Our Reviewers

Our reviewers cover all kinds of technical ground so you don't have to. Say hi the next time you're in line next with one of them at the electronics store!
