Take quadruple care

21 December 2016
  1. When you are using the internet, do you consider where you are? Because there is a big difference between surfing from home and from a location with public wifi. When you are using a public connection anyone can look over your shoulder. Even worse, unauthorized people can access your mobile device. And this comes with the risks of internet fraud and crime.

    Ensure your basic security
    Are you using the internet from an unfamiliar location, for example, at another university? At the cinema, or the airport? Make sure it is secure. Always apply the following precautions.

    1. use a login account
    2. encrypt your data storage
    3. use an ad blocker
    4. use a VPN connection.
