Staying Safe on the Internet

There is information available to keep you safe on the internet.

The internet is now an integral part of all our lives and helps us to keep in touch with others.

The internet can be used to send e-mails to family, shop on-line, or order repeat prescriptions. Using technology can be confusing, especially when lots of technical jargon is involved, and it is easy to feel uncertain and unsafe in the virtual world.

For most people, using the internet is perfectly safe. However, all of us using it should bear in mind that there are people out there who use the net for criminal purposes.

The Get Safe Online† website provides computer users with free, independent, user-friendly advice that enables you to use the internet confidently, safely and securely.
