Additional tips on internet privacy
Here are some important things to remember about internet privacy in general:
- You are responsible for access to, and security of, your computer.
- You are responsible for keeping your username, passwords and account information private and secure.
- Your personal information can be used by other people if you post it via online forums that are accessible to the public. For example, you might receive unwanted messages from other people.
For your own protection, always close your browser after you’ve finished your session. This is why: if you access a website using your personal information, and then leave your browser open afterwards, this puts your personal information at risk. This risk increases significantly when you leave a browser open on a shared computer. To get rid of this risk, you simply need to close your browser after your session. This will ensure that no one else can access your personal correspondence and information if you are using a shared computer at home, or a public computer e.g. in an internet cafe or library.
