Netsmartz Tips - week of October 20
5 ways to be smarter than the SMARTPHONE…
1. Be a parent and a resource. Establish clear guidelines, including time limits and consequences for inappropriate behavior, but be open so your child will come to you with any problems.
2. Set up password protection. This will keep everyone but you and your child from accessing personal information stored on the phone.
3. Update the operating system. New versions often contain important security fixes.
4. Approve apps before they are downloaded. Make sure you understand their capabilities and approve their content.
5. Understand location services. GPS features are useful when using maps, but you’ll want to disable location-tagging when your child posts anything online.

Protecting Yourself and your family from Identity Theft

The number one rule when it comes to protecting yourself from identity theft is PAY ATTENTION! Many online scams depend on you being fooled by false websites, spam, and offers. Minimize the chance that you will be taken advantage of by closely examining any site that asks for your personal information. For example, look for the “HTTPS” or a lock symbol in the address bar when making purchases online. This means that you are viewing a secure web page with the necessary allocations for privacy and protections.

Parents, also talk to your children about online scamming techniques. Warn them about clicking on pop-ups and downloading programs from unknown sources, as these may be tricks to install malware or get personal information. Also, make sure to have antivirus software and firewall programs installed on your computer. Although these programs are not always infallible, they are essential in helping to keep your personal information private and your computer working properly.
