7 Ways To Protect Your Kids on the Internet

How to Protect Your Children on the Internet

1.  Spend time with your child on the computer. Put the computer in a place that can be easily accessed by the entire family. Use the Internet with your child to play games, plan for a family vacation, or learn about new places and people. Ask your child to teach you more about the computer and to show you certain tricks he or she may have learned. Not only will you gain computer knowledge, you will also get valuable information on just how savvy your child is on the computer. Make sure to ask your child what he or she likes on the Internet and to show you favorite sites.

2.  Let your child know that you will be periodically watching and monitoring his or her online activities. (Internet security software from companies like OnlineFamily.Norton often include parental controls that can help you encourage safe surfing.)

3.  Share an online pseudonym, password, and email account with your child. In this way, you can monitor online correspondences and the Internet sites that your child has accessed.

4.  Never, under any circumstances, allow your child to have face-to-face contact with someone they met online without your permission. If you agree to the meeting, accompany your child and arrange for it to take place in public.

5.  Don't allow your child to go into private chat rooms without your permission and supervision.

6.  Monitor your credit card bill. Many pornographic online vendors require credit cards in order to have access to their sites.

7.  Alert your Internet provider if you or your child come across sexually obscene material. You can also notify the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's Cyber Crime, your local police.

Two Thumb Rules for Your Password Security

Written by Microgets Corporation India on Wednesday, 21 December 2011. Posted in Social Initiatives

There has been a common advice given when it comes to Password Security.

Most people know that there are two important rules for password security. And these are…

  1.     Use strong passwords.
  2.     Never repeat them at more than one place.

But it is easier said than done. Unless you use a robust and convenient password manager like RoboForm, it is extremely difficult for an average computer user to follow both these advice. The result is that he breaches one of them and falls victim to password frauds jeopardizing his privacy and PC Security.

Gunter Ollman has written an interesting blog post and given arguments on why, you should seriously consider writing down your passwords to ensure their security. He gives a priority list on what to do to ensure password security. Here is the list in the descending order of priority.

  1.     Don’t use the same password on multiple websites
  2.     Don’t let your computer “remember” your password!
  3.     Use a “strong” password – preferably something with 12+ mixed characters
  4.     Don’t use a predictable algorithm – e.g. abc123
  5.     Change your passwords regularly. For sites with lots of personal information and associated monies, change every 2-3 months. For other sites, try every 6-12 months.
  6.     Don’t reuse past passwords – even if you think it’s a cool password.
  7.     Don’t write your password down.
