Lisa(left): Hey did you hear about the recent computer hacking's that have been going on around the city? Madison(right): Yeah they are crazy! Actually my friend Tom said he got hacked. Lisa: What! Really? How! Madison: He put his password and other information on a website that he wasn't really familiar with. I think I'll talk to him about it.
Lisa: Hey Tom. I was meaning to talk to you about how to prevent your computer from getting hacked again. Tom: Wow! Thank you Lisa. I think if I was more informed about computer safety this wouldn't have happened in the first place. Lisa: Well you're in luck because I can teach you all about internet and computer safety.
Lisa: Using internet safety is very simple and you can do it in these 5 steps: the first one is to make sure you update your computer. Doing this keeps your computer up to date and faster also it stops it from running slow. Next, you should uninstall Java which is a program that most websites come with which is hardly used now. After that it is important that you use strong passwords to make sure your accounts can't be broken into. Then, avoid opening unknown emails and messages. They could be scams or hackers trying to get your information. Finally, you should back up your computer to ensure that all your files are safe.
