How to Keep Kids Safe Online - Part 3

This weeks tips focus on keeping your kids safe even when you are not at home.


Boost Your Network Security

When at home or work, you probably use a password-protected router that encrypts your data. But, when you’re on the road, you might be tempted to use free, public Wi-Fi. The problem with public Wi-Fi is that it is often unsecured. This means it’s relatively easy for a hacker to access your device or information. That’s why you should consider investing in a Virtual Private Network (VPN). A VPN is a piece of software on you computer or mobile device that creates a secure connection over the internet, so you can safely connect from anywhere. if you’re not sure which VPN to choose, contact us and we’ll guide you through the options. Having a VPN will make you more secure!


Use a Firewall

Even if your network is secure, you should still use a firewall. This an electronic barrier that blocks unauthorized access to your computers and devices, and is often included with comprehensive security software. Using a firewall ensures that all the devices connected to your network are secured, including Internet of Things (IoT) devices like smart thermostats and webcams. This is important since many IoT devices aren’t equipped with security measures, giving hackers a vulnerable point of entry to your entire network.
