Just like a seatbelt in a car or a helmet on a bike, we all need some type of Internet security to protect ourselves from potential hazards. Here are a few Internet security tips to ensure your safety online.
Protect your identity in the event of a lost smartphone. Lock, locate and wipe data from a smartphone remotely.
Antivirus protection isn’t just for PCs. Protect your desktop, laptop, tablet and smartphone with antivirus software.
When searching the Internet, look for color-coded icons that signify a websites security.
Internet speeds will vary due to several factors, and therefore are not guaranteed. Internet speed can be affected by your devices, equipment, your wireless network and even the specific website you are visiting. Performance of a computer or other device, including its processing capability, operating system, the number of applications running simultaneously, and the presence of any viruses will impact speed. The type of connection between a computer or device and modem will affect your speed. In-home wireless connections are subject to greater performance fluctuations, caused by factors like interference and congestion. Certain wireless connections and routers cannot perform at the speeds delivered by Grande. Internet congestion or high usage levels at the website or destination can slow speeds. Accessing a site that is being visited by others at the same time may slow your connection if the site does not have sufficient capacity to serve all of the visitors efficiently at the same time.
