This week I chose to learn more about basic safety when using my computer. I have learned that there are many dangers when browsing the internet or even by simply checking my email. I never knew that I should not open attachments that come with emails I receive. There can be malicious software within that could infect my computer just by opening it (E-Safe: Phishing Emails - Internet Safety, n.d.). From now on I am going to be wary of not only emails that come from people or businesses that I do not now, but even from those I do. Fraudulent emails can look legitimate and I have to be very careful not to fall victim to a scam. If I am in doubt about the legitimacy of a request for information, I will call my bank or credit-card company and will never send personal information through my email account.
