Online safety advice for the elderly

Postby Admin » Sat Feb 22, 2014 10:54 am

Though many elderly are cutting edge users of Internet services, some are beginners when it comes to computer technology. Just spending more time online will help you feel more comfortable with the ins and outs of navigating online and interacting on Web sites. Once you’ve familiarised yourself with the tricks scammers and some less reputable companies use, you can simply avoid them.

This booklet has a section on email security and internet browsing for a vulnerable elderly person trying to find help if they are being abused whilst not being detected by an abuser. There is a social media section with advices on instant messaging, quizzes, Facebook and more. There is a section also for online dating with advice on how to stay as safe as possible.
