There are many threats that you can find in the internet. In social media websites alone, you can become a victim to cyberbullying or to online scamming. Your kids are not safe either. They can become victims to online predators. You must therefore find ways to protect your kids when they are using the internet. Here are some ways to protect you and your kids every time they go online.
You need to protect you and your kids’ identity. There are different ways to do it. First, don’t use lazy passwords. Never use a password that has 1234. It is like giving the key to your front door when you use this password. Also remind your kids not to use the same password to different accounts. This may be a convenient choice but you and your kids are exposed to attacks. Use passwords that are complicated and not easy to guess.
Before installing anything, you need to read the user-license agreement in anything that you install. You need to know the files that will be copied to your computer and the location of the files. You should also be careful in checking updates and subscription during installations. Every time you install a program, you will be asked to check the checkbox about automatic subscription and downloads.
Once you follow these safety suggestions, you’ll be safe from attacks. Remember that when you protect your identity, criminals will have nothing to work on and they will have nowhere to start especially when they plan of attacking you online.
