FC: Ways to be safe online
1: Do not provide email addresses to mailing lists unless you need to do so. | Unsubscribe from websites that you do not regularly use.
2: Avoid “too good to be true” products, deals, and opportunities. Once you have confirmed your email address, they are likely to sell your email address to other companies.
3: Make sure you have antivirus software, and that it also protects against spyware, programs that secretly collect your data.
4: Disable Internet “cookies,” so that companies cannot put tracking devices on your computer. (Sites will not be able to remember your preferences as well this way, which is something to consider.)
5: Investigate computer applications that block pop-up ads.
6: Examine sites’ privacy policies before you reveal any information on the site avoid using sites that will share your data with others.
7: Limit the number of times you click on ads, no matter what they are for.
