Internet safety & privacy protectionPeople in your address book begin asking why you are sending strange e-mails to them …….. and you feel pretty embarrassed.

Or worse :

Your hosting provider warns you that you’re spreading enormous amounts of Email ( “spam”), probably caused by a bot-net in your device or network.

Computer support fantasy keyOn the  NEWS PAGE  you can find frequent blogs. I publish there every time I find something useful related to internet safety ( and more ), which supports you in having a safe web experience.

Finally :

Our society depends on the internet these days. But it’s a hungry beast, swallowing information constantly. From Facebook to phishing spam, from Linkedin to online tracking and from the Google monster to hackers using e.g. keyloggers. You name it ! Everywhere, really everywhere information about you and me is gathered and stored. Just imagine that Google – and also Facebook perhaps – have made a profile of you, even without you knowing that and having an account there. Scary huh ? Well then, don’t surf “willy nilly” on the web and do something against that…….

Web Of Trust excellent website  I hope this website will contribute to safe(r) surfing and more. Have fun reading !
