Staying safe on the internet

A topic that I return to frequently but it keeps evolving. We are potentially tricked into visiting more and more websites and clicking on dangerous downloads.

The browser providers can help you by putting up shields that will identify a lot of problem sites. And we need all the help we can get! To activate these if they aren’t already:

Chrome: go to settings-privacy and security. Now select ‘enhanced protection’

Edge: use settings-privacy, search and services. Scroll most of the way down and turn on ‘enhance your security on the web’.

Firefox: settings-privacy and security. Near the bottom is ‘Block dangerous and deceptive content’.
