Privacy and Security

By David


When you make a password make sure it is not a generic password that most people would choose such as 1234 or your name. If you have an important account, you need to really think about your password and make it something that nobody will be able to figure out. Also make sure your password is not difficult enough for you, you need to remember your password.


Just about anyone is vulnerable to online scams. If you see a popup, never click on it even if it looks promising. A scam can be an ad and this ad will always look to good to be true and that is because it is. Scams can lead you to losing a lot of your information and money to strangers. To avoid being scammed you need to make sure the ad and or email is legitimate. You need to inspect the potential scam very closely and not open or agree to anything unless you are sure it is legitimate, and even then watch out. Scams have progressed in their appearance.


If you wish to keep your privacy, the best thing to do is just not to go on the internet. But if you are on the internet try not to put information that could be possibly revealing such as your area/address/school. To keep your privacy just make sure that you look over what information you put on the internet and if your posts could be revealing. Be aware of what your putting out there.

User Agreement

When you get a pop up for an app that says to agree or decline, even if you really want to accept right away to get on with the app, the safest thing to do is to check what the agreement says. An agreement can entitle you to anything, not always necessarily good. It is always important to read the entire agreement despite how long it may be, reading everything is the safest thing you can do because you ultimately know what your agreeing to.
