What is one way that you make online safety a daily habit?
On February 5, Yahoo! is supporting the tenth annual Safer Internet Day. Safer Internet Day is a global event sponsored by Insafe and co-founded by the European Union that promotes online safety across the public, private and non-profit sectors.

I wonder how often Yahoo accounts are hacked and/or used for nefarious purposes, it's hardly a safe website.

Suggestions:

1) Use sites that require legitimate details to set-up an account
2) Use sites that incorporate https
3) Use sites that have people monitoring input and have moderators rather than algorithms vetting content

1.) Really think about what you say. Many people feel more powerful online and tend to say things they don't really mean. If you stay yourself and be kind to others online, you lower your risk of being harassed or stalked. Not kidding.
2.) Don't put too many provocative photos of yourself online because many people will try to get more information on who you are.
3.) Don't save your passwords on your computer. When your Internet browser asks "Would you like to save this password?" say no because when people get access to your computer, all of your information and websites are subject to someone messing with them.
4.) Set any information you have (ex. Facebook) to private so that only people you know can see it.
5.) Always log out of websites when you are done.
6.) Use a password website, which will give you a very safe passwords or will check a password you already use to see if it is safe. This will maximize your security.
