Do not accept friend requests from unknown persons. Use security feature on your photograph on Facebook and Whatsapp.
This information was given during the workshop on ‘Cyber Security’ held in Government Kamla Nehru Girls Higher Secondary School.
During the workshop the experts informed not to use date of birth and other private information in passwords. Password should be long.
Always write the answer of the security question wrong. Keep separate passwords for all accounts. They warned against downloading free songs and films to avoid virus.
Do not forget to logout from the computer after working. It is a crime to send or forward porn material, messages that can hurt or instigate religious sentiments and make fake profiles.
Any work which we do not do in real life should not be done in virtual life also, the experts said. Do not upload personal photographs on social sites like Facebook or Whatsapp.
Stalking someone online is also a crime. Do not provide mobile number and home address in your Facebook profile.
The workshop was organized by the Madhya Pradesh Council of Science and Technology and Aao Sakhi Samaj Kalyan Samiti. Smt. Radha Gupta, Smt. Kriti Gupta, social workers, teachers and students were present on the occasion.>
