Protecting yourself by securing your devices, software and connections is important, but making the right choices when doing things on the web can make a huge difference to your safety online.
Sites with un-safe pop-ups
We visit countless websites every day. But not all of these websites are completely safe. Even safe websites can have unsafe pop-ups. These pop-ups can take you to dodgy websites which automatically download viruses. It’s critical that you look out for unsafe websites so you can protect yourself online.
Downloading from un-safe sites
We often download useful software or content from the internet. In our search for the right stuff, we sometimes find ourselves on dodgy sites. It’s important to protect yourself from unsafe downloading sites. Never download files from unsafe sites.
Sites with multiple download buttons
Everyday, we visit a wide variety of websites. It’s important you know if the websites you visit are unsafe. Do they have pop-up windows or multiple download buttons? Avoid these dodgy sites and keep safe.
