Any computer or mobile device that is spending time online should be protected by Internet Security software which should include:
Virus Scanner, Firewall, Spyware Scanner, Phishing Filter and Identity Protection
It’s always important to keep your software up to date so that it can spot the latest threats to your security. Most programs will generally run a daily update when the computer is switched on.
While security software will monitor and check the data going through your Internet connection it is always a good idea to run a scan at least once a week, at a time when the computer is not being used for lessons or any other work.
We recommend their nationally-acclaimed ThinkUKnow scheme, which highlights the importance of online safety and promotes use of the “Report Abuse” button to report illegal or inappropriate behaviour encountered online.
A not for profit service that aims to empower parents and carers to keep their children safe in the digital world.
