My name is Anthony and this website is about bringing Internet safety to the younger generation.
I've had my fair share of run-ins with hacking and viruses in the past; for example my personal Twitter account was hacked because I wasn’t paying much attention to my account security and accidentally gave someone my password. They then had access to my account and began to spam my friends and contacts.
When I was about 10 my family moved from dial up to broadband internet giving us more opportunities online. Being a child I wasn’t fully aware of what I was doing and unintentionally gave my computer details away to many people online, resulting in my computer slowing down and losing a lot of information. Luckily it was my computer and not my parents’ so there weren’t any bank details on the hard drive.
I’m here on this website to help others avoid getting into similar or worse situations. Having realized how easy it can be to lose control of your security I’m making this site to make people more aware. This website is to help you stay safe online.
Online safety can mean two things. One - being able to protect yourself against cyber hackers and be more aware of how your details can be stolen. And two - to explain what cyber bullying is and how best to deal with it, based on my personal experiences. Cyber bullying and internet safety can go hand in hand. For example people can harass you through both text and cyberspace.
