There are Dangers Online. How Can You Get On the Safe Path?
In life we can either go on risky directions or stay on the safe path. For instances, we all know that if you put deadbolts on your doors at home and install security cameras, you’ve taken steps to boost your security at home. That not only reduces your risk level, but it also helps you sleep better at night.
Along those same lines, you can increase your online safety—and reduce your online risks and worry levels—by taking a few simple and proactive steps in the right direction.
At WhatIsMyIPAddress.com, we call that, being on the Safepath.
You see, from the time the Internet was created, security was an afterthought. And even as developers were creating new programs, software and hardware, security consideration always came second…or last!
In a way, the Internet started out as a risky place to be, and it still is.
So, how do you know if you’re on the Safepath?
What it means to be on the safe path.
Online safety doesn’t have to be complicated, and we like to keep things simple and not overly complicated. Believe us, a few steps in the right direction will make a big difference.
To find out if you need to get on the Safepath, answer the following questions. They’ll take just a few seconds:
- Do you use the free WiFi in hotels, airports, malls and restaurants?
- How do you protect your computer from sneak hack attacks?
- Do you take any action on news about data breaches?
- Are you good about checking your credit accounts and history often?
- Do you worry about others logging into any of your accounts?
These are the kinds of questions most of us just don’t bother to think about. Here’s why:
- We believe we don’t have the time to think about security.
- We tell ourselves we’re doing a good job of staying safe.
- We really don’t want to worry ourselves. We just hope for the best.
Well, here’s important news for everyone.
- You need to do more than you’re doing now.
- You’re fooling yourself if you think you “it won’t happen to me”
If you don’t take online security into your own hands, you could be on the road to identity theft, a computer attack or malware and more.
The good news is, you can get off that dangerous road and start on the Safepath to greater security.
