Dont give your Name, Number, City/Town, Age, Picture or anything like that. No naked pictures, never give money to internet sites that say they will give you more money in return, and dont ever talk to strangers over the internet that seem fishy ( saying you are pretty or that they want to know where you live)
1: Stay away from porn. 2: don't open attachments in email. 3: use McAfee site adviser, or Norton internet security to protect your PC from spoofed sites. 4: Use Spybot Search And Destroy weekly. 5 Use parental controls if you have children. 6 Don't go on the internet at all unless you have done the above, or unless you want to keep all your privacy as the government reads ALL email now.
Golden Rule: Never disclose any personal information or incriminating evidence that could identify you i.e. pictures of yourself/family, actual name(s) or yourself and family, and most importantly remember that the internet is a medium through which many express their opinions, don't be afraid to make friends but be wary of people who try to threaten you. there's almost always someone you can report them to or a block function. Have Fun :)
Don't give out your e-mail address or any other personal info to people you don't know, even your name (last name more importantly.) NEVER click on ads that say, "NO JOKE! YOU ARE THE 1,000,000 VISITOR ON THIS SITE! CLICK HERE TO CLICK YOUR PRIZE!" It's a Trojan horse.
