  5. 5. STEPS FOR INTERNET AND COMPUTER SAFETY Safe- Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information – such as your full name, email address, phone number-to people you are chatting with online.Do not give out identifying personal information without getting your parents’ permission first. Don’t use “lazy” passwords, such as 1234. Instead, come up with a longer password that contains letters and numbers/characters, preferably one that references something significant only to you. Meeting- Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission and even then only when they can be present. Accepting- accepting emails, messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain viruses or nasty messages! Reliable- Information you find on the internet may not
  6. 6. be true, or someone online may be lying about who they are.Not everything you read online is grammatically correct. Tell- Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online. COMPUTERSAFETY TIPS: Use firewalland antivirus software-A firewall is a barrier between something that is potentially dangerous and something that you want to keep safe. Update Microsoft Windows - Even with the newest computer, there are updates to be applied. There have been significant security holes discovered in all versions of Windows so it's important to update your computer's operating system as soon as possible. Install security patches on other softwares. Vulnerabilities in software are constantly being discovered and they don't discriminate by vendor or platform. It's not simply a matter of updating Windows; at least monthly, check for and apply updates for all software you use. Block Spyware - spyware and viruses often go hand-in-hand but can take many forms. Some 'hijack' your web browser
  7. 7. and redirects you to their website. Others quietly download and install trojans, keylogger programs, etc. to your computer so hackers can take control of your computer later. Install and run an anti-spyware program. Backup your important data often. Use external USB hard drives to store all of your "data", documents, photos, music as well as USB "thumb" drives that you can carry on your keychain. Secure your browser.To ensure optimum browsing safety, the best tip is to disable javascript for all but the most essential of sites -- such as your banking or regular ecommerce sites. Not only will you enjoy safer browsing, you'll be able to eliminate unwanted pop-ups as well. Don't fall victim to virus hoaxes. Dire-sounding email spreading fear, uncertainty and doubt about non-existent threats serve only to spread needless alarm and may even cause you to delete perfectly legitimate files in response. RULES OF NETIQUETTE THE MAIN RULE: Treat others as you would like to be treated. RESPECT OTHERS' COPYRIGHTS: There are wonderful things online, information for everyone on just about any topic! However, these things have copyrights and licenses. DON'T TYPE IN ALL CAPS: It hurts our eyes. It makes people think you are shouting at them. It's okay to type in caps to accentuate a word or two, but please don't do it all the time everywhere you go. DON'T SPAM (a.k.a. junkmail): Don’t send spam messages!Don't contribute to worthlessinformation on the Internet bysending or responding to masspostingsofchainletters, rumors, etc.
  8. 8. BE HONEST: Don’t pretend to be someone else. USE PROPER GRAMMAR & SPELLING. NO "FLAMING": Flaming is a form of verbal abuse when you intentionally attack or disrespect somebody for whatever reason. Maybe you didn't agree with something they said, but there's a nice way to share a different point of view without name calling or attacking someone. RESEARCH YOUR FACTS/CITE SOURCES: There is so much information online, so it can be very difficult to distinguish what is true and not true. Before posting something or forwarding emails make sure it is factual and cite sources if possible to boost your credibility. Not only will this help keep down on the hoaxes and insanity floating around online, but it can help make you build a solid reputation online. USE APPROPRIATE EMOTICONS (EMOTION ICONS) TO HELP CONVEY MEANING. Use "smileys" or punctuation such as :-) to convey emotions. See website list of emoticons at and
