Chapter 11 - Is The Internet Safe? 25
When I got my computer in the late 1990s, my kids were young and my primary concern was their safety. Most people, back then, were worried about computer safety back then and the fact that anyone could “come into their home” via computer and steal their children or money. I still know people who think this way, even today, and who will not have a computer in the house for this reason.
Computers are safe, but you have to learn about internet safety and you should be aware of some of the tricks, con games and scams that take place online. The internet is perfectly safe, as long as you know how to protect yourself. Although child exploitation and identity theft are feared online, there are ways to protect yourself against these problems.
During the years, I managed to learn quite a bit about internet safety. Much of what I reveal in this book has been learned through trial and error. I did get viruses in my computers. I did get my identity stolen. I did have problems with people who found out too much information about me. Fortunately, I was able to learn from past mistakes and prevent others from making the same mistakes that I did.
Internet safety is all about keeping yourself, your family and your personal information safe. Once you learn how to do this, you will feel much more secure in using the internet for a variety of different purposes. Despite the problems that happened to me, I still maintain a Facebook page. I do all my banking online and most of my shopping. I have had the same computer for a few years and it is virus free. I also managed to keep my children, who are now grown, from falling prey to any internet predators.
The internet technology has also allowed me to make my living as a writer - if it wasn’t for computers and the internet, I would be out of work. I know quite a few people who met their spouses online and I have managed to make some nice cyber friends through this media.
Yes, there are dangers to the internet, but if you know what you are up against when you go online, you will not fear these dangers but be able to enjoy the convenience and fun of using the internet. The internet is here to stay. It is important for anyone who wants to keep up with current technology to learn how to not only use a computer and go online, but also to do it safely.
There are many advantages to using the internet when it comes to making purchases or even ordering services. Jobs are often found through the internet today and many companies insist that you apply for a job online. Airlines and other companies offer discounts to those who order tickets online as opposed to using an agent. Needless to say, the internet has tremendous advantages for everyone.
After reading this book, you will understand how to keep yourself safe when using the internet. This is not a book that uses technical language regarding cyber security, but a book that will teach the average person how to be safe, as well as keep their family members safe, when online.
