Safely Surf the Web

  1. Do not click links you receive in email. Instead, after you’ve verified it’s legitimate, type the Web address directly into your browser.
  2. Only provide information on sites that start with https:// and a lock icon which appears at the bottom of the browser window.
  3. Do not respond to or open suspicious error or warning dialog boxes.
  4. Do not accept free deals that pop up on your screen without first checking to ensure the offer is legitimate.
  5. Install product updates and security patches before using the Internet. Visit the software or browser manufacturer’s Website for the latest updates.
  6. Visit sites like Microsoft Security Essentials and OnGuard Online for up to date information.
