Be encouraged to be smart online

Be Smart Online

In today’s age of the internet, there are lots of people out there trying to conn you, steal your identity, passwords etc. It is time you familiarise yourself with what is required to be safe online.
Don’t necessarily trust everyone that tells you they are there to help, do your homework.
If someone on the internet, for whatever reason, wants to connect to your computer, “To Help”, I recommend you don’t do it unless you know and trust the person. You might be quick to say that would not happen but believe me, it does and these guys are very slick, smooth and well prepared. You don’t expect anything and by providing a few details, to the friendly person on the other side, they could get access to your personal data and probably passwords which could have serious implications.

It might be a good idea to visit the “Staysmartonline” government website for more detail on how to be a bit smarter online.
