Online Security – Combatting Spyware
In the second article in our series about online security, we’ll discuss spyware, and how to avoid it.
You’ve probably heard that identity theft is on the rise, but did you know that you could become a victim of identity theft through software on your computer – software that you didn’t know about, and never wanted to have installed in the first place? Such malicious software is known as spyware. Spyware is software that is installed on your computer without your knowledge. It is used to gather information about you, and/or to monitor or control your computer usage.
Do Your Christmas Shopping at Home –On-Line instead of In Lines
Have you thought about doing more of your Christmas shopping online this year? You’re not alone. In fact, online Christmas shopping increased by 25% last year, and even more growth is expected this year. (Source: Internetretailer.com)
Maybe it’s because of higher gas prices, or maybe more and more consumers just don’t feel like braving the mall parking lots or the crowds (right during the height of flu season). Whatever the reasons, online shopping is clearly on the rise.
Our partner website at www.surf4it.net has added a great feature, just in time for Christmas shopping. It’s a one-stop, on-line shop – a mega-mall with links to most major consumer websites, as well as some specialty stores for those hard-to-buy-for relatives and friends.
It’s a great link to save, with just one place to go for online shopping resources. Even after Christmas shopping is done, the online mall is helpful when you’re shopping for office supplies, computer hardware, etc.
Join the e-crowd. Shop online this year at surf4it.net.
