I don’t have to tell you that with school starting this week, that there are the new concerns of our children on the computer, doing research and social activities. Our children will be searching and researching for projects and things that they “hear” about. They will be connecting with friends through Social Media and maybe even posting pictures and videos!
I used to think that my family was protected because I had security on our computers and devices and I also taught them what was right and wrong with respect to behavior and content on the internet. Then a few months back I learned that my middle one was posting pictures and videos online of herself and others without their consent. My middle one was also becoming friends online with total strangers. Who knows what she was searching and reading on the internet now! I was so shocked and honestly very disappointed and angry. We had taught her better, but apparently, she did not listen.
So in comes ESET Smart Security with parental controls to save the day.
ESET Smart Security allows you to set parental controls on all your computers and devices.
ESET has an article that is a very good read titled How to keep your children safer online. The article has great advice and tips for keeping your children safer online.
Another concern I always have when my children are accessing the internet is their activity in relation to Phishing. I get concerned over them clicking on a link or something that then causes us Phishing Problems.
Phishing email messages, websites, and phone calls are designed to steal money. Cybercriminals can do this by installing malicious software on your computer or stealing personal information off of your computer.
Cybercriminals also use social engineering to convince you to install malicious software or hand over your personal information under false pretenses. They might email you, call you on the phone, or convince you to download something off of a website.
ESET Smart Security has Anti-Phishing Security in the software. What was surprising to me, was that I thought that I knew what I was doing and very careful. Then one day a few months back our internet started to act strange. It would disconnect and even knock our television services off line. We called our service company and they did everything they could with very little improvement. Then the service manager said something that would prove to be important…..sometimes a virus or something like that can cause this.
Well, of course it was not me or my computer and devices. I am educated in this area and very careful. I did virus scans and everything I could think of to check my computer. It was not me or was it?!
Enter ESET Smart Security again……..
I downloaded ESET Smart Security and did my first scan. My previous security protection said I was all clear, but after my first ESET Smart Security scan, I had 19 viruses and problems that the ESET Security Software took care of with the click of a button!
I could not believe that I had 19 security problems! I educate myself on this topic. I am careful with online activities. Then I thought….if I had 19 security issues what about when my kids get online with school?! Heart palpitations happened because I need our internet, computers and devices working for work, blogging and school.
