HOW TO SURF THE INTERNET SAFELY
- Inappropriate or offensive content: when browsing it you may come across pages that contain pornography, that violate honor or that incite hatred and racism.
- Being in touch with malicious people: there are people who take advantage of the false sense of anonymity of the Internet to apply scams, try to pretend other people and commit crimes such as fraud, child pornography and kidnapping.
- Identity theft: just as you can have direct contact with impostors, it can also happen that someone tries to impersonate you and perform actions on behalf of you, leading others to believe that they are relating to you, and putting your image or reputation at risk.
- Theft and loss of data: your devices connected to the Internet keep your data and it can be stolen or deleted by others, such as thieves, hackers or malicious codes.
- Privacy violation: personal data disclosure can compromise your privacy, your friends and family and, even if you restrict access, there is no way to control that it will not be passed on. In addition, websites often have privacy policies and may change without notice, making what was previously private public.
- Rumor spreading: like information on the Internet, you can quickly obtain and reach a large number of people in a short period of time. While this may be desirable in certain cases, it can also be used to spread false information, which can generate panic and harm people and companies.
- Difficulty of deleting data/information: once you’ve published any information over Internet, you can’t ensure you’ll can delete it at all or control it access. It includes opinion given in a improper or impulse reflection moment and it can being used against you, from your family members to your bosses and it can be accessed any time.
- Difficulty in detecting and expressing feelings: when you communicate via the Internet there is no way to observe other people’s facial expressions or tone of voice, just as they cannot observe you (unless you are using webcams and microphones). This can make risk perception difficult, generate misunderstanding and dubious interpretation.
- Difficulty in maintaining confidentiality: in your daily life it is possible to have a confidential conversation with someone and take care that no one else has access to what is being said. On the Internet, if care is not taken, information can travel or be stored so that other people have access to the content.
- Excessive use: the excessive use of the Internet, as well as other technologies, can put your physical health at risk, decrease your productivity and affect your social or professional life.
- Plagiarism and Copyright Infringement: Unauthorized copying, alteration or distribution of protected content and materials may run counter to copyright law and result in legal problems and financial losses.
