June is Internet Safety Month!

It’s Internet Safety Month!

As a social worker and survivor of cyber crime, I want to encourage you to protect your information online. I also want to help educate others on how to do the same. June is National Internet Safety Month so it’s a great time for all of us to brush up on current safety trends and practices! Here are some quick tips to get you started this month!

Quick Tips

1
Double check which apps on your smartphone need to use your location information, especially those that track location while not being used.

2
Be careful on public wifi. Public wifi connections are often less secure than your home or work. It’s best to save sensitive transactions like online banking or money transfers until you’re on a secure connection.

3
Turn off Bluetooth when not in use. This helps limit your device’s exposure to potential hacks.
