Stay Safe Online
A strong password is a password no-one will guess. It should be complicated and includes numbers. Your passwords are the most common way to prove your identity when using websites, email accounts and your computer itself. The use of strong passwords is therefore essential in order to protect your security and identity. The best security in the world is useless if a malicious person has a legitimate user name and password. Choose a password with a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and keyboard symbols such as @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ +. (for example SP1D3Rm@n – a variation of spiderman, with letters, numbers, upper and lower case). However, be aware that some of these punctuation marks may be difficult to enter on foreign keyboards.
Secure Wireless Connections
If you have a wireless network set up at home make sure it’s secured. When you have an unsecured wireless network even people with a basic computer knowledge can connect to your network, use your connection for downloading illegal material and easily see every single things you do on the internet.
Good Virus Protection
To stay safe you must have some sort of virus protection; some are free but some you might have to pay for. If you have a virus protecter its stops your computers, phones etc from getting viruses.
