Reset a resolution for Safer Internet Day

It’s been 42 days since New Year’s. Have you broken any resolutions? Safer Internet Day is the perfect day for a “replacement” resolution. If you promise yourself to be safe, secure, and responsible online, the tips at OnGuardOnline.gov can help.

 

Want to keep your money safe from fraud? Promise yourself you’ll avoid scams online. 

Got tweens or teens in your life? The newly updated guide, Net Cetera: Chatting with Kids About Being Online, can help you start a conversation about digital citizenship. If you’re community-minded, order copies to share at a library or school.

If you gave up your diet for good before the Super Bowl, maybe you don’t want to aim too high. Here’s a resolution anyone can keep: spend just three minutes watching an OnGuardOnline.gov video about how to protect your information when you use public wi-fi. Then follow the advice the next time you think about logging on at a coffee shop or mall.

Are the Freebies on line for Seniors legit? I regret signing
up. First it was phone calls waking me up. One offered
gloves plus the hook. I got rid of calls. (the gloves never
came).
Next I am swamped with false offers. Some offer
coupons. I do not have a printer. Plus, my mail box
is daily stuffed with junk mail. Where's the beef? :-\
PROCTOR Gamble, Purinia, Feebrez(toxic to pet birds as
are many deoderizers. My canary dropped dead when
I lit scented candle. Cats--Lysole and of course antifreeze.
On and on rainforest fall prey to paper junk. Sorry I
got off subject. Alot of offers appealed only to be trash.
We are killing trees, wildlife and OUR SELVES for trash.
Anyway has ANYONE received product?? Am I
fussing needlessly? Thanks. Amber
