People are always stressing about internet safety and how it is the most important thing to be responsible while using the internet. But honestly, who really pays attention to those long boring presentations? Coming up is a top five list on why you need to be safe and how to stay safe. Have faith, this one is not boring!
Don’t give away personal information online such as… Full name Address Social security number People you don’t know who ask for your personal information should be red flagged and blocked. Other ways to be anonymous can be.. Use a nickname in group chats Keep online friendships virtual, don’t meet in person Think carefully when creating an email address
Create a unique password that no one will guess. NEVER tell anyone what it is unless you are looking to be hacked. Your password shouldn’t include your name, personal info and not be obvious. Make it something original!
There are many threats to a computer such as viruses, worms and spyware that can damage any computer’s system. There are multiple ways to protect your computer. Any protection program you obtain should include Antivirus, Anti-spyware and Firewall. There are many other forms of protection but these three components are the best bet when it comes to protection your computer. Nothings worse than a crashed computer!
Do the grandma check, and if what you are about to post or send would disappoint your grandmother, don’t do it. This information and or images that you post now may come back to bite you in the future, whether it’s a rumor spread across school or you potentially not getting a job because of the profound info found under your name. Its just not a good idea!

2 OUT OF 10 The only thing this mouse is good for is navigating on a computer.
