How to stay safe on the Internet?

Postby SuncicaZ » 28 Sep 2017, 20:52

Here, I want to share with you some tips about safety on the Internet. First, put different passwords on different sites where you have accounts. Next, put some very difficult passwords. Be careful what are you sharing, do not share your phone or you address.

I thought I was cool with giving out my phone number until lately I was receiving unwanted promotional text messages. I know these sites that I signed up to gave away my personal details to a marketing company which is kind of annoying. I also no longer let my browser remember my password just to be safe.

I would also cover up your webcam just in case. Many tech people do this as a precaution because you just don't know when it is accessed. Some sites automatically ask for a webcam and you can get caught out!

I disagree with the first two..having hard or easy passwords don't protect us in any way but the last one is okay.

I do take your point that having a strong password doesn't guarantee your security and that there is a lot more to cyber security protection than strong passwords. However, If someone wants to hack into your email address it will be a lot more difficult for them to do so if your password is something like "u+7)T5Rue" rather than "letmein".

The use of internet can be helpful and at the same time, it can be misuse as well. In order to prevent hackers or online viruses, upon opening emails, you should remember first if you are subscribed to those. If you opened it, do not just click the link right away. Check if it is secured by seeing the "https://". To be sure, better not open anything if you are in doubt.

You can also change passwords once in a while. Another is avoid giving personal information that can track you down easily.

And I think we should avoid using free Wi-Fi or public Wi-Fi. Maybe from time to time we do scanning on antivirus software.
