Online Safety Tips

TIP 2. Anti-Virus

It goes without saying that in this day and age we should all have anti-virus/malware software on our machines. If you haven’t then it’s not a case of ‘when’ you get a virus – it’s that YOU ALREADY HAVE ONE – or more!

For home use. Try Sophos – free for PC and Macs.

*Avoid MacAfee like the proverbial plague. Kaspersky also looks like it slows your machine down to a crawl too (am currently testing 4 anti-virus programs and pitting them against each other).

If you don’t have protection on your machine, your bank account could be emptied at any time.
