Browsers help you move around the Internet, and search engines make it easy to find information on the Internet. A secure browser, combined with an antivirus/antispyware program, helps you identify safe and unsafe websites.

  • If you get a notification from your antivirus/malware program that a site you are trying to visit is unsafe, believe it. Don’t go there.

  • If a site asks you to change your browser settings in order to “improve your experience,” ignore the request and use a different website.

  • Allow downloads and execution of programs only when you absolutely trust and understand what the program will do.
