How can I improve my computer security and online safety?

Online safety and computer security is important not just as a student but in everyday life. On campus all of our computers are protected by a firewall and antimalware software. We recommend for your own devices you install a security software that will give you protection. This will scan your computer for any potential harm.

To reduce threats to your online safety you should never:

  • Share your passwords
  • Download software from an unfamiliar source
  • Always lock an unattended computer
  • Don’t click on links from junk mail
