Netiquette IQ Blog For 2/3/2016 - From The US Department Of Homeland Security - Tuesday, February 9, is Safer Internet Day

From The U.S. Department of Homeland Security

This Tuesday, February 9, is Safer Internet Day 2016 – a worldwide effort to make the Internet a safer and better place for all.

In our ever-connected world, Americans are spending more and more time online. Three out of four cell phone owners (76%) never or rarely turn their mobile devices off, according to a recent Pew Research PLAY YOUR PART FOR A BETTER INTERNET -  study. As our lives become increasingly connected to technology the safety and security of the Internet becomes even more critical. This year’s Safer Internet Day theme – “Play your part for a better Internet” – reminds us that we all have a role to play in making the Internet safer and more secure. 
Fortunately, there are many ways to have an impact and make the Internet safer. Here are three ways you can get involved in Safer Internet Day:

In honor of Safer Internet Day, the Stop.Think.Connect. Campaign encourages you to make online safety a priority. You don’t need to be an IT professional to protect yourself online; start with these simple tips while using the Internet at home or on the go:
  • Set strong passwords. Use complex passwords with a combination of numbers, symbols, and letters (upper and lower case).
  • Be wary of public Wi-Fi. Although convenient, most public Wi-Fi networks are not secure. Don’t conduct any sensitive activities, such as online banking or shopping, while connected to public Wi-Fi.
  • Keep software updated. Running the most recent versions of your mobile operating system, security software, apps and Web browsers is among the best defenses against online threats.
