Questions to ask yourself What is your family's safety worth to you? What are your financial assets worth to you? What is your privacy worth to you?
I want you to be Cybersafe.
Tips To Help You Navigate Safely Through Cyberspace: Shop online only with companies you know. If you do not know a company, ask for a print catalog before you decide to order electronically Use a secure browser that will encrypt or scramble purchase information. If they do not have encryption software, consider calling the company's 800 number, faxing your order, or paying with a check
Tips To Help You Navigate Safely Through Cyberspace: Never give anyone your bank account number, social security number, or other personal information that is not absolutely needed to complete a transaction Never give out your Internet password. Your online provider will not ask for your password other than at first log-on. Change your password often and be creative.
Filling out Forms on the internet Never include any information in a form that you fill out that gives people your or homepage password. Never include your social security number, drivers license number, or credit card numbers.
1. Never include any information in a form that you fill out that gives people your or homepage password. 2. Never include your social security number, drivers license number, or credit card numbers. 3. If you are making a purchase on the internet that requires any of this information, make sure that you are using a form on a secure site. If you are using Netscape, they have a feature where you see a key in the lower left hand corner. If the key is broken you are not in a secure site. This means that any information that you submit can be intercepted by hackers or anyone else that has the knowledge to grab the information.
4. Kids - make sure that your parents know that you are filling out forms and that they approve of the information that you are providing on the forms. 5. Again, don't provide your address or phone number on forms that you fill out. Most forms include these questions as optional information, when it's optional don't give it.
Things To Look For
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) allows software to communicate with Web servers in a secure, encrypted manner. Many Web sites that conduct electronic commerce use SSL to securely transmit credit card numbers from a customer's Web browser to the Web server.
