Online Safety eBook for Teens – Own Your Space


This is an ordinary day for you. You download music, Google your homework, and are constantly online on FaceBook. You check your email, tweak your Tumblr, download the latest Glee episode. And of course you’re either at Fantasy Basketball or Cafe World. While you’re doing that, you know that you need to keep safe. This ebook is all about that — protecting your data, your identity, and yourself without giving up all the neat stuff being online puts at your fingertips.

This ebook is by Linda McCarthy, a Security Architect at Symantec. She has previously published seven books on IT Security.

Targeted for teens and tweens, it tackles, among others, fighting viruses, worms, Trojans and spyware; curbing spam and crushing web bugs; understand just how public your ‘private’ blogs are; keeping your home wireless network secure; and safeguarding your parents’ credit card and financial data.

It’s a resource no teen or parent should miss. Using any OS or browser, download .pdf files of the entire book or individual chapters from this link: http://fur.ly/2mnx
