Good Practices in Using Internet

  1. Receive messages/files from the Internet
    Use your anti-virus software to real-time scan for all incoming files before opening them.
  2. Send messages/files on the Internet
    Put the receivers’ e-mail addresses in the Bcc column instead of To column while sending bulk e-mail to prevent e-mail addresses harvested by virus or exposed to others.
  3. Secure remote computer access
    Download Secured Shell from here for a secure remote computer access. It would help to encrypt all the sensitive data transferred through the Internet.
  4. Never click a pop-up
    Important information does not come as pop-ups, but spywares do. No matter how “innocent” a pop-up looks, beware and close it promptly. Enable pop-up blockers to protect yourself.
  5. Beware of phishing
    Phishing refers to ‘spoofed’ e-mails and fraudulent websites designed to fool recipients into divulging personal financial data such as credit card numbers, account usernames and passwords, social security numbers, etc. Please visit for details.
