Get Safe Online In Wiltshire

With most of us relying on the internet to one degree or another to communicate, manage our finances, obtain products and services and enjoy entertainment, it really is a wonderful resource. 

Unfortunately, however, things can and do go wrong online, with an increasing number of people of all ages and backgrounds being affected by fraud, identity theft and abuse – some of it originating in the UK, but a great deal from abroad. 

There are simple technical steps we can all take to protect ourselves, but most problems can be avoided by making sure we always follow some simple rules and use our common sense. 

This booklet provides some useful tips which we recommend you read and follow when online, and pass on to someone who you think may benefit from them. 

Keep it somewhere handy as a memory-jogger as you never know when you may need a quick reminder.
