Google’s Chromebit Turns Any TV Into a Chromebook

COMPUTER TIPS, GOOGLE, Google Chrome

Google just introduced a whole new kind of Chromebook OS computer—a dongle that plugs into any HDMI-equipped display. It’s called a Chromebit, and it isn’t your run-of-the-mill streaming stick. For under $100, you’re looking at a full computer that plugs right into your TV.

“Get more done and worry less.” That’s what teachers, businesses, and everyday people have told us they can do, thanks to Chromebooks. Since we introduced them four years ago, Chromebooks have made computers faster, simpler, and more secure, while eliminating everyday hassles like waiting for your computer to boot up, having to constantly charge it, and remembering to install software updates. And a lot of people love them—Chromebooks were the best selling laptops on Amazon last holiday season, and teachers and students made them the #1 device in schools last year.

Quality and affordability

You shouldn’t have to choose between a computer that performs well and one that you can afford. Today we’re introducing two new devices that meet both criteria: the Haier Chromebook 11 (available at Amazon) and the Hisense Chromebook (available at Walmart). These new Chromebooks are fast, lightweight, have long-life batteries and are available for pre-order today for $149.

They join new partners like TRUE, XOLO, and Nexian and our existing range of Chrome devices —ranging from 11.6” Chromebooks for $199 to 15” Chromebooks for $499 rolling out over the next few months from partners like Acer, AOPEN, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo and LG.

A Chromebook you’ll flip for

We’re also excited about the ASUS Chromebook Flip. A premium, all-metal convertible, it’s ultra-portable—just 15mm thin and weighing less than two pounds. The Chromebook Flip has a great keyboard and a touch screen for immersive experiences like gaming and educational apps. It will be available later this spring for $249.

A little bit more…

This summer, ASUS will launch a new type of Chrome device: the Chromebit. Smaller than a candy bar, the Chromebit is a full computer that will be available for less than $100. By simply plugging this device into any display, you can turn it into a computer. It’s the perfect upgrade for an existing desktop and will be really useful for schools and businesses.

So whether you’re looking for a smaller Chrome device that packs a big punch or a laptop that can do back bends, there’s a Chromebook for you…and for everyone else, too.

How can you protect yourself while online?

BROWSER, COMPUTER TIPS, INTERNET, SAFTY TIPS, TIPS & TRICKS

When sending confidential information over the Internet such as usernames, passwords, or credit card numbers only send it securely. To verify this look for a small lock (Internet browser security lock) in the bottom right corner of your browser window or next to the address bar (as shown below). If visible, this lock should also be in the locked position and not unlocked.

Internet Explorer 7.0 secure address bar
Internet Explorer 7 secure address bar

We also suggest making sure the URL begins with https as shown above.

While the lock is in the lock position, data is encrypted, which helps anyone from understanding the data if it’s intercepted. When no lock is visible or in the unlocked position all information is plaintext and if intercepted could be read. If a web page is not secure, such as an online forum, use a password you wouldn’t use with protected sites such as your online banking website.

E-mail is not encrypted

Websites should not transmit confidential data over e-mail, such as passwords, credit card information, etc. E-mail is not encrypted and if intercepted by a third-party could be read.

Be aware of phishing scams

Familiarized yourself with phishing scams and techniques, which are used to trick you into divulging your account information. Online banking sites, Paypal, eBay, Amazon, and other popular sites that require logins are popular targets.

Use a safe password

Websites that store confidential data, such as an online bank site need to use strong passwords. Also, it is highly recommended that you use a different password for each website that requires a login. If you need help remembering your passwords consider using a password manager.

Use caution when accepting or agreeing to prompts

When prompted to install any program or add-on make sure to read and understand the agreement before clicking on the Ok button. If you do not understand the agreement or feel it is not necessary to install the program cancel or close the window.

Additionally, when installing any program watch for any check box that asks if it’s ok to install a third-party program, toolbar, etc. These are never required and often cause more issues than good. Leave these boxes unchecked.

Be cautious where you’re logging in from

Business

Your place of work can install key loggers or use other methods of monitoring the computer while online. Someone who has access to this information could read these logs and gather usernames and passwords. Also, do not store any passwords in your browser if your computer is shared with other coworkers.

Wireless network

When on a wireless network realize that all information being sent to and from your computer can be intercepted and read by someone nearby. Prevent this from happening by only logging into a secure network using WEP or WPA. If this is a home wireless network, make sure it is secure.

Friends house

Be concerned when logging into an account from a friends computer. A computer or network you are not familiar with could intentionally or unintentionally log usernames and passwords. Finally, when logging into any site on a friends computer never save the password information on their browser.

Be aware of those around you

While at work, school, library, or anywhere that has people around who could look at the monitor be cautious of anyone shoulder surfing. Someone could watch you type in your password, which would give them access to your account.

If you need everything displayed on the screen to remain private, consider a privacy filter for the display.

Update Internet browser plugins

Often many attackers find security vulnerabilities through browser plugins such as Adobe Flash. Make sure all installed Internet plug-ins are up-to-date.

Secure saved passwords

Make sure to store passwords and login information in a secure area. Never write login information on a sticky note or in a text file that is not encrypted.

To save your passwords we recommend using a password manager, which stores all login information and securely encrypts and password protects that information.

When saving password information in a browser, it may be visible by anyone who has access to your Internet browser. For example, without a master password setup in Firefox anyone can see all stored passwords.

Use a third-party service to confirm the safety and security of a page

We recommend the free Web of Trust (WOT) tool to verify the safety of all websites on the Internet.

Top Internet tips and tricks

BROWSER, INTERNET, TIPS & TRICKS

Here is a list of best top internet tips and tricks can used in our daily internet activities.

You don’t need the http:// portion of a web page

When entering an Internet address you do not need to type http:// or even www. in the address. For example, if you wanted to visit Computer Hope you could just type bigsweb.net and press enter. To make things even quicker, if you are visiting a .com address you can type bigsweb and then press Ctrl + Enter to type out the full https://www.bigsweb.net address.

Quickly move between the fields of a web page

browsersIf you are filling out an online form, e-mail, or other text field you can quickly move between each of the fields by pressing the Tab key or Shift + Tab to move back a field. For example, in the example form below you can click in the “First Name” field type anything and press tab to switch to the next field.

Quickly move between the fields of a web page

If you are filling out an online form, e-mail, or other text field you can quickly move between each of the fields by pressing the Tab key or Shift + Tab to move back a field. For example, in the example form below you can click in the “First Name” field type anything and press tab to switch to the next field.

First Name:



Tip: This tip also applies to the buttons, if you press tab and the web developer has designed correctly the button should be selected and allows you to press the space bar or enter to push the button.

Tip: With a drop-down box that lists dozens of options you can press the first letter to scroll down to that letter. For example, click the drop down box below and then press “u” to quickly scroll to Utah.

Know your Internet browser shortcuts

Internet browsersThere are dozens of different shortcut keys that can be used with Internet browsers. Below are a few of our top suggested Internet browser shortcuts.

  • Press Alt + D to move the cursor into the address bar.
  • Hold down the Ctrl key and press the + or – to increase and decrease the size of text. Ctrl + 0 will reset the text.
  • Press the backspace key or press Alt key + left arrow to go back a page.
  • Press F5 to refresh or reload a web page.
  • Press F11 to make the Internet browser screen full screen. Press F11 again to return to the normal view.
  • Press Ctrl + B to open your Internet bookmarks.
  • Press Ctrl + F to open the find box to search for text within the web page you are reading.

Take advantage of tabbed browsing

Take full advantage of tabbed browsing on all Internet browsers. While reading any web page if you come across a link that interests you open the link in a new tab so it doesn not interrupt your reading. A new tab can be opened by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking the link or if you have a mouse with a wheel press down on the wheel to use it as a middle mouse button to open the link in a new tab.

Use Internet search engines to their full potential

Get the most out of every search result. If you are not finding what you want try surrounding the text in quotes. For example, searching for ‘computer help’ without quotes returns results with “computer” and “help” anywhere on the page. However, if you search for “computer help” with the quotes it only return pages with “computer” and “help” next to each other.

Tip: In every search box you can press enter instead of using the mouse to click the Search button.

Try alternative browsers

Most computer users use the default browser that comes included with the computer, with Microsoft Windows this is Internet Explorer. There are many great alternative browsers that are all free to download and use and may have features your current browser does not include. Below are a few of our favorites, try one or try them all.

Install plugins and add-ons

All of the above alternative browsers also have a large community of volunteers who develop add-ons and plugins that can be added into the browser. Each of these browsers has hundreds of thousands of these add-ons that can do such things like the current weather in your browser window, changing its color, and adding additional functionality.

Make sure your browser and its plugins are up-to-date

An Internet browser can have many plugins that give it additional functionality. For example, Adobe Flash is a great way to bring movies and other animated content to the Internet. Keeping these plugins up-to-date is vital for your computer stability and also security. Using the below tool you can quickly verify if your plugins are up-to-date and get links to where to download the latest updates.

Use online services

There are hundreds of free online services that can help make using your computer easier, more productive, and more enjoyable.

Save any Images and Files to Google Drive or Dropbox directly with Ballloon

BROWSER, Chrome Extension, INTERNET, ONLINE STORAGE

Ballloon (yes, with an extra l) is an amazing Google Chrome extension that lets you save all kinds of images, PDF files, hyperlinks etc., to Cloud Storage service accounts with just one click. If you open any webpage and come across a file or image, just right click on it to save it directly to your cloud storage account (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.). The file does not even need to be downloaded to your PC to be saved to your cloud storage. In fact, if the file is large, you can just click on it to start the transfer process, and then even if you shutdown your PC, the file will be transferred to your cloud storage directly. There are no intermediate save locations, no extraneous permissions, or anything of that sort. Just one click, and it sends off the file to your cloud storage account.

Ballloon basically works by adding hover-over icons over images and relevant options to the right-click context menus of hyperlinks and PDF files. These can be then used to directly save these files to your cloud storage accounts. You can even change the default location Ballloon uses to save stuff to your cloud storage accounts. It practically works with any online image, hyperlink or PDF file link out there. Currently, Ballloon works with Google Drive and Dropbox, with support for OneDrive and Box coming soon. Sounds like something you could use? Head past the break to find out more.

Ballloon: Installation And Setting Up Your Cloud Accounts

Adding Ballloon to Google Chrome is just like adding any other Chrome extension. All you have to do is search for Ballloon in the Chrome web store (or click here), and click Add. Once you do that, a little balloon icon shows up in Chrome’s icon bar. However, you still need to do a little work before things get working. Here’s a step by step tutorial:

Step 1: Before you can start using Ballloon, you need to set up your cloud storage accounts to work with it. To do that, firstly you need to log-in via your Google account. Doing so is really simple, and all you have to do is enter your Google Account credentials and authorize Ballloon to access your account. Pretty standard stuff in here.

Step 2: Once you’re logged in via your Google Account, Ballloon’s extension icon changes from Grey to Blue. This extension icon provides one click access to all the settings related to your Ballloon account. Apart from this, it also shows some cool stuff, like random (and awesome) photos from artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, access to your cloud settings, user feedback, files scheduled for your cloud (called departures) and things like that. Pretty cool if you ask me.

Step 3: Next up, you need to configure your cloud storage accounts (Google Drive and Dropbox) to work with Ballloon. To do so, simply click the extension, horizontally scroll to the cloud settings section and click on it. You should get a screen like this:

Saving A Web Hosted Image:

Step 1: Go to any image hosting website, or any website that has any kind of image on it. Hover your mouse pointer over the image that you want Ballloon to save. Once you do that, you’ll see two small icons (Dropbox and Google Drive) on the top right corner of the image. Check out the animated graphic below:

Save any Images and Files to Google Drive or Dropbox directly with Ballloon (1)

Step 2: Now, all you have to do to save this image to your Dropbox or Google Drive account is just click on the respective icon. Once you do that, this image will instantly “fly” to your cloud storage account, all thanks to Ballloon.

Save any Images and Files to Google Drive or Dropbox directly with Ballloon (5)

You can even check the image’s upload status by clicking the extension’s icon and navigating to the Departures section. That’s it. See, it literally takes one click. How cool is that?

Save Hyperlinks and Online PDF Files Directly to Google Drive and Dropbox:

Step 1: Go to any website that has any kind of hyperlink on it. Or go to any website that’s having a downloadable PDF hosted on it, with a download link.

Step 2: Right click on any hyperlink or PDF download link that you want to save to your cloud storage account, select Save to > Google Drive or Dropbox.

Save any Images and Files to Google Drive or Dropbox directly with Ballloon (6)

Google Chrome Extension for PDF to Image convertion

BROWSER, Chrome Extension, INTERNET

Images are easier to view, especially if you have an older device that doesn’t and cannot support PDF documents, there’s no apps. Reading PDF documents in these types of situations requires you to convert them into a different file format first, and that’s exactly what the following apps and extensions for Chrome can do, convert PDF into images.

So lets look at these extensions and apps in details.

PDF to Image Converter

pdf-to-image-converter-google-chrome

First app that we’re gonna talk about is called PDF to Image Converter and it has two work modes.

First it can be used as an image extractor. This is useful if you have a PDF document with embedded images. This tool will scan the PDF document and extract images out of it. The page scanner on the other hand will take an entire page, doesn’t matter what it’s made of, and it will convert it into images that you can afterwards download either individually (1 image for 1 page) or all at once. JPEG image format is supported.

Get PDF to Image Converter.

PDF Tools

pdf-to-image-converter-google-chrome-1

What exactly am I looking at on the image above you must be wondering. What you’re looking at is an image rendering of a completed PDF to image conversion.

You get a preview of the converted document after which you’ll be able to download it as a compressed archive. Each page is gonna be converted into its own image. Images can be JPEG with 3 different levels of quality. Setup is very simple and straightforward, it shouldn’t be an issue. Simply select the PDF document that you’d like to see converted and wait for PDF tools to do its thing.

Get PDF Tools.

Online PDF Tools

pdf-to-image-converter-google-chrome-2

Online PDF Tools is actually a set of PDF tools for editing and processing PDF files. You get a converter that converts any file (document) into PDF, PDF merge tool, PDF rotate tool.

What interests us, the PDF to JPEG tool can be seen in action on the image above. Notice that a very long list of formats is supposedly supported, but we discovered that there’s no way to select any of the mentioned image formats, only JPEG is supported. After loading up a PDF document, you’re gonna have to wait a bit until the file is processed. Waiting time depends on the size of the file. Once the conversion finishes you’re gonna be taken to the converted image file.

Useful Background Dimmer Addons For Firefox

BROWSER, INTERNET

Here’s a list of useful background dimmer addons for Firefox which you can use to dim backgrounds on website when viewing videos so that they are more enjoyable to watch. Having a bright background around a video isn’t very appealing, because it puts extra strain on the eyes. To enjoy a video more, you’ll have to dim everything down so that nothing distracts you from watching the video.

That’s exactly what the addons that we’re gonna talk about are for.

Turn Off The Lights

Background Dimmer Addons For Firefox (1)

Turn Off The Lights adds a button for dimming everything in the addon toolbar. Clicking on that button while watching a video in a tab down below will dim down everything around the video, see image down below.

It’s a classic background dimmer addon, and it works great no matter which website you’re on. This means that you can use it on other websites, not just YouTube. Wherever there’s a video frame it’s gonna be detected and everything around it is gonna be dimmed after you click on the button.

Get Turn Off The Lights.

Screen Dimmer

Background Dimmer Addons For Firefox (2)

If on the other hand you don’t like the fact that the entire screen is bright when watching videos, then you might be interested in a screen dimmer that dims the entire screen.

That’s exactly what this extension which bears the same name, Screen Dimmer, does. It will dim down everything within all the active tabs, no matter what you might have open inside of them. Use Ctrl + Alt + + and Ctrl + Alt + – to adjust the level that the tabs are dimmed, or use Ctrl + Alt + 0 to reset the levels to normal.

Get Screen Dimmer.

Vimeo Dimmer

Background Dimmer Addons For Firefox (3)

Vimeo Dimmer is for all of those who might be interested in dimming background on Vimeo videos specifically, if it’s not working with Turn Off The Lights for example.

Everything works pretty much the same like with Turn Off The Lights. You get a toolbar button which is gonna turn off background on all the videos, no matter if they’re on a single video page, channel or group page.

Get Vimeo Dimmer.

Tube Enhancer Plus

Background Dimmer Addons For Firefox (4)

Tube Enhancer Plus on the other hand is a full-fledged YouTube improvement suit that has a wide range of options for tweaking YouTube, one of which is the background dimmer.

After installing the extension, you’ll be given a toolbar down below with options for managing YouTube. There’s a light bulb icon which after you click on it will dim down the video background and at the same time also increase the video player to fill out the entire page, so that the video is more enjoyable to watch.

Bookmark Extensions For Google Chrome

BROWSER, Chrome Extension, INTERNET

Here’s a list of  bookmark extensions for Google Chrome which you can use to manage your bookmarks more effectively. With the extensions that we’re gonna be talking about, you can do everything from getting a handle over your bookmarks when you have a lot of them to simply protecting your privacy by adding password protection to bookmarks which can then only be accessed with a password. Let’s start.

Secure Bookmarks for Google Chrome:

Considering that lately our privacy has been under attack from all sides we thought we should start with an extension that can help you password protect bookmarks.

Chrome-bookmark-extensions-secure-bookmarks

Secure Bookmarks creates a unique bookmarking area where you can store bookmarks, just like you would with the regular Chrome bookmark toolbar. The only difference between the two is that Secure Bookmarks allows you to put a password so that when you click on its icon from the top right corner, instead of showing saved bookmarks, potential intruder is gonna be asked for a password.

Bookmark Sentry

Bookmarks Sentry is a bookmark scanner that searches for dead bookmarks and duplicates.

Chrome-bookmark-extensions-bookmarks-sentry

When you have hundreds of saved bookmarks, it can be difficult to go over them all to check and see if there are duplicates or if some of them are dead. Bookmark Sentry will scan your bookmark collection and let you know if there are any duplicates or dead links.

Get Bookmark Sentry.

How To Bookmark Facebook Posts view them later

BROWSER, INTERNET, SOCIAL MEDIA

This tutorial explains how to bookmark Facebook posts.

Many a times we come across Facebook posts that are quite informative and we would like to go back to them in future. Unfortunately, Facebook doesn’t provide any way to bookmark posts (though, there has been buzz about Facebook implementing this feature, but it has not happened till now).

Thankfully, there are a few easy ways to bookmark Facebook posts that you like. Let’s go over them to see how you can go back to Facebook posts that you liked earlier.

Bookmark-Facebook

1. Bookmark Facebook Posts

Every browser comes with a bookmarking feature that lets you bookmark any webpage. You can use that feature to bookmark Facebook posts as well. Bookmarking the posts is the simplest method to save your Facebook posts, so that you can view them later.

Posts on Facebook can be easily bookmarked by these simple steps.

Step 1: Click on the timestamp of the posts. Below every post, there is a timestamp that shows when the article was posted like: “2 hours ago”, “ten minutes ago”, “yesterday at 2.30 p.m” etc. Just tap on that and the post will opens in a separate page of its own.

Facebook-Timestamp

Step 2: Now use your browser’s bookmarking feature to bookmark that page (you can also just press Ctrl+D.. try doing on this page). Now the page of that post is bookmarked on your browser and you can go to it anytime you want. (If you bookmark lot of pages, you might want to check out one of these bookmarking plugins for Chrome).

2. Chrome Extensions To Bookmark Facebook Posts

If you don’t want to go through the whole process of opening the post in a separate webpage and then bookmark it, then you would be happy to know that there are two Chrome extensions that let you directly bookmark Facebook posts.

The two chrome extensions are: Facebook-Bookmark Posts and Facebook Favorite.

Facebook Bookmark Posts: This one is my personal favorite. Just add this Chrome extension and you will see the “Bookmark” Option added to posts on your Facebook. Just tap on the Bookmark option present there, to save the particular post. After you install this Chrome extension, you will be able to see a Facebook logo added to your Chrome toolbar. Tap on the logo, and you will be able to see the links of the Facebook posts saved by you.

Facebook-Bookmark-Extensions

Facebook Favorite :  Similar to the above, this one is also a Chrome extension that adds an option called Favorite to the posts. And similar to the Facebook Bookmark Post extension, this too adds a Facebook logo, which when tapped on shows you the list of the posts that has been set as favorite by you. Click on the option that says Favorite, right below your posts, to add the post to the list of favorites.

3. Clip It

Apart from the traditional ways to save your Facebook posts, there is one more way to save the those worth reading posts posted on your Facebook wall. SocioClip is a popular website that let’s you save the Facebook posts.

To save the Facebook posts via SocioClip, you need to follow these steps:

Step 1: The first step is to install the SocioClip extension for Chrome. After installing this extension, you will be able to see an option called “Clip it” added to every post that is on your Facebook wall.

Step 2: The posts that you wish to “Clip” will be saved to your SocioClip account. Therefore, first of all you will have to get a free account on SocioClip. Now tap on the option that says “Clip it” below the post and it will open a small window that will require you to fill certain details about the post. After you fill in the details, tap on the Clip it Option to save the post to your SocioClip account.

These are some of my favorite methods to bookmark Facebook posts so that I can get to them anytime I want to. There are some other complicated methods as well (like, you can share a post on Facebook, and then choose it to share the posts as a “Private Message”. That will have your posts saved in your in your Facebook inbox, till you want). But you don’t need to be bothered with those, especially when there are so simple methods available.

Protect Yourself Online – Internet Safety Tips

COMPUTER TIPS, Google Chrome, INTERNET, MICROSOFT, SAFTY TIPS, WEBSITE

Protect Yourself Online - Internet Safety TipsInternet threats continue to pose a problem for anyone that surfs the Internet — and yes, that includes you reading the headline and thinking you know it all. In this article we will show you how to protect yourself using some “best practices” for safely surfing the Internet, all without spending a dime.

Background on Internet Threats

Anyone can throw around terms such as “spyware” and “viruses”, but what exactly are they? It helps to know before trying to figure out how best to avoid such problems. Here are the basics:

  • Malware: Short for “malicious software”. Resides and runs on a user’s computer without their consent or knowledge. Malware can be used as an all-inclusive term for viruses, spyware, keyloggers, worms, and Trojan horses, and other Internet threats.
  • Spyware: A type of malware that collects information about users, including personal information and habits (sites they visited). It can also trigger popups and install additional malware.
  • Virus: A type of malware that can replicate itself and infect other computers through a network or media (such as a flash drive). Viruses can do multiple harmful things to a user’s computer, such as taking it over and using it for malicious purposes.

Three Steps to Internet Safety

This guide will take you through three relatively simple steps to protect yourself on the Internet:

  1. Install Mozilla Firefox
  2. Install the McAfee Site Advisor tool
  3. Change your online habits

Step One: Install Mozilla Firefox

Yes, “Install Mozilla Firefox” may be clich; however, there is sound reasoning why this is a good piece of software. Let’s cut the marketing nonsense — here are the tangible things I like about Firefox:

  • Pop-up blocker: Pop-ups are perhaps the most annoying form of advertising, and Firefox takes care of them for you. It will let you know a pop-up was blocked in case you were expecting one.
  • Unsafe site warnings: If you go to a website that is fraudulent, untrusted, or has known security problems, Firefox will actually prevent the site from loading.
  • Integration with anti-virus software: Firefox works with your resident anti-virus program to scan downloaded files for security threats.
  • Automatic updates: Firefox automatically updates itself, so your defenses stay current.
  • Private browsing: Firefox normally remembers what websites you visited, however in private browsing mode (which is easy to toggle on and off), it will not remember anything you did. This feature is handy when logging into banking sites that you want to leave no trace of on your computer (or someone else’s). Private Browsing can be activated from the tools menu and clicking “Start Private Browsing”; do the same to turn it off:

Without further delay, follow this link to Mozilla’s official website and download Firefox for your computer.

Firefox is a small 8MB download. Click Download and thensave the file to your computer to a location you know (such as My Documents). Double-click the downloaded file and install Firefox with the default settings. Done? Great! Those familiar with Internet Explorer should be able to adapt to Firefox without much trouble — it gets natural after a day.

Step Two: Install the McAfee Site Advisor Tool


Certain websites are created with malicious intent; for example, some might try to infect your computer with malware and others might be fake phishing sites designed to steal your personal information. McAfee, a computer security company, has a Site Advisor tool that displays ratings next to links in search engines (such as Google and Yahoo), indicating whether or not the listed sites are safe (see here for thorough information on how it works). Site Advisor works with both Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. Simply download and then install McAfee Site Advisor using the default settings (leave everything as-is, though I recommend unchecking the option to install the unnecessary Yahoo toolbar).

Once installed, restart Firefox and test Site Advisor out. Make sure your default search provider is set to McAfee first — in the top right next to the search box, click the down arrow and select McAfee Secure Search:

Now search for something and check out the results page — each link has a little icon next to it that indicates whether the site is safe or not.

Green means good, yellow is caution, and red means unsafe/untrusted. A question mark indicates the site has not been scanned yet. As a rule of thumb, only click on the green links.

Below is an example of what search results look like after installing the Site Advisor tool:

And yes, NotebookReview.com is totally safe — but you knew that.

The Site Advisor tool is great to have when you are searching for things you do not usually search for (and thus might be unfamiliar with sites that come up). It never hurts to double-check. As always, use your judgment when clicking on links. If something is too good to be true, it is.

Step Three: Change Your Online HabitsProtect Yourself Online - Internet Safety Tips 2

The single greatest danger you face on the Internet is yourself. More specifically, there is no software that can compensate for your poor Internet safety habits.

Let’s start with how much critical information you willingly give away. This is the Internet — information posted online can be seen by almost anyone, and secure websites can be hacked. Even restricted pages such as your Facebook profile are not entirely safe — someone with access (such as your “friends”) could copy and paste the information to a Web page that isn’t truly private. The bottom line here is that you need to be extra careful with yourself on the Internet. Below are a few of the habits I see daily that present huge security risks to the users:

? Connecting to unsecured wireless networks: You know that coffee shop down the street that offers free Wi-Fi? That free Wi-Fi access could cost you a lot if it is unsecured (Windows will indicate whether a network is secured/unsecured when you try to connect). An unsecured connection is an open network that allows anyone to connect — information passed from your laptop to the wireless router and vice versa can be intercepted by people with the right tools since it is not encrypted. Additionally, network attacks can be made from other computers connected to the network.
Internet Safety Habit: Avoid unsecured Wi-Fi

? Accessing secure websites in public: Even on a secured network, remember that people can see what you type on your laptop screen. All it takes is one person to walk by with a camera phone and snap a picture of your online banking page. The same is true at your office, where all it takes is one nosy coworker poking over a cubicle wall or an unscrupulous network administrator spying on your workstation to snag your passwords.
Internet Safety Habit: Access secure websites only at home

? Saving personal information on shopping websites: Most shopping sites offer to save your credit card and address information for easier checkout in the future. While this is convenient for the few sites you shop at regularly, please do not opt to save info on every site you shop. Though the information is supposedly secured, successful hacking attempts have occurred in the past and personal data has been stolen. Also, there are too many stories of personal information getting “lost”.
Internet Safety Habit: Don’t save credit card numbers on shopping sites

? Posting personal information on social networking sites: I find it amusing that people post the details of their personal lives on social networking sites such as Facebook, give a platoon of their “friends” access, and then complain about privacy issues. Am I the only one that can see the issue here?
Internet Safety Habit: Only post information online you want everyone to see

? Keep your computer personal: Internet browsers such as Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox make it easy to store password and form information (such as names and addresses used in order forms). Anyone that opens the web browser on your computer can check your browsing history, visit your “secure” sites (like your Web-based email) and automatically log in as you because you opted to have the browser save your password. Avoid storing passwords, or better yet, password-protect your computer and lock it when not in use (press the Windows key and L to lock your computer). Make a second account on your computer for other people to use so your information is kept separate, and make sure that account is password-protected and not an administrator.
Internet Safety Habit: Never save passwords on any computer that you share

? Do not install software you do not explicitly want: Many software vendors try to sneak additional pieces of software on your system during the install process. For example, toolbars for your Internet browser, updater tools, and other unnecessary (and annoying) items. If you wanted those pieces of software, you would have installed them on your own.
Internet Safety Habit: Install as little software as possible
