Mondays Matter: Week 9

Taken from the book Every Monday Matters: 52 Ways to Make A Difference by Matthew Emerzian and Kelly Bozza
Protect Yourself with Internet Safety
1. Create a password that has a combination of upper and lowercase letter, numbers , and symbols for unlocking your computer and for accessing websites. Use a different password for each site.
2. Never use an automatic log-in feature that saves your username and password.
3. Always log off the internet or your computer when you're finished.
4. Avoid storing financial information on your computer.
5. Use anti-virus software and a firewall.
6. Do not open emails sent from strangers.
7. Forward spam that is phishing for information to and to the company, bank, or organization impersonated in the phishing email.
These are all great tips and excellent reminders when we are in the internet. Remain cyber-safe by protecting your computer as if it were your wallet. Practice safe surfing and you will be glad you did!
