Safety on Social Media

Staying Safe

What social media do you have? Do you enjoy using them? An awesome invention to be able to communicate and share things through the internet yet at the same time it can be very dangerous! Lets see how safe you are...

Facebook

I am practically sure you all have Facebook, right? What are your privacy settings though? Make sure everything is set to 'Friends only'. Be sure to think before you post anything because it can end up in the wrong hands and then it will be too late!

Snapchat

How fun is snap chat? You can send images that last up to 10 seconds to individuals and they will never be opened again. Yet the danger is someone can screenshot it! The good thing is that it shows'when someone has screenshoted it; even though you cant do anything about it. It is an app!

Instagram

Such and artistic app! You post very inspirational and fun pictures that the people you allow to follow you can see. You can also follow celebrities and friends and check what pictures they post! Yet be careful because once you post that picture it will stay somewhere on the net forever!

PIN's

The internet is not safe! Especially if you use sites that you can post images! A PIN is what connects the user and the system. Use safe pass codes that you only know and THINK BEFORE YOU POST!

Biometrics

Computer Scientist's are figuring out different ways to make each and every account safer. They are adding more protection to sites such as Facebook, SNAPCHAT, Instagram etc. Things like eye recognition, facial recognition and finger scans are now being incorporated!

This is some basic Biometrics.

All about encryption…

Do you online shop? Isn't it a quick and easy way to shop? Well it's not the safest. Nowadays, criminals with a bit of computing knowledge can easily access your bank accounts as you're checking out online and get hold of you banking details.

Forensic Computing

Computer forensics is the practice of collecting, analysing and reporting on digital data in a way that is legally admissible. It can be used in the detection and prevention of crime and in any dispute where evidence is stored digitally. Computer forensics follows a similar process to other forensic disciplines, and faces similar issues.

So are YOU safe?

Be safe, have consent, think before you post and try to take the safe path whilst surfing on the net! Check out the links below for more on certain topics;)

Who's responsibility is is?

There used to be an age of consent yet this is the 21st century and things have changed to the more dangerous side. Young adults have started using Facebook from 11 years old meaning their responsibilities have changed and the age of consent is now the age that someone is mature enough to handle something. It all depends on the person and the knowledge he/she has. If you are now on the internet reading and posting things, be aware that is YOUR responsibility.

Do you need help?

Ask an adult that knows basic or more things on social media, use the internet, a sensible friend or the site below.
