The Internet can be a great thing, but it can also be a dangerous thing if you don’t know how to use it properly. Now, when you’re using a public computer, it’s important to make sure you use it differently from your computer at home. How can you surf safely while in public?
Avoid bank websites: When you use a public computer, it’s best to avoid using any type of banking website. Whether you’d like to see your credit card statement or how much money is on your debit card, it’s best to avoid these sites completely so that you don’t get your information hacked or saved on the public computer.
Avoid personal information: You also want to avoid any sites that ask for your social security number or things like your name and address.
Risky sites: Risky sites such as porn sites and gambling sites should also be avoided when in public. It never hurts to avoid them entirely as well.
E-mails: Though it may seem innocent, avoid logging into your e-mail on a public computer as you may forget to log out or it may automatically sign you in from now on.
As you can see, there are some great ways to surf the Internet safely while out in public.
