Book Description

Written for computer and Internet savvy "tweens" and teens, this book is also a useful resource for the adults they rely on.

Whether you are a parent, caregiver, or educator, you can keep up with the latest computer and online safety issues and help kids learn to avoid the real dangers that exist in their Internet-connected world.

You have been immersed in the technology since preschool. You download music, Google your homework, and constantly IM your friends. You check your email before dinner, tweak your MySpace page, and bypass that hardcopy diary for your own 31337 space in the blogosphere. While you’re doing that, you also need to protect yourself. This book is about keeping safe — protecting your data, your identity, and yourself without giving up all the great stuff the Net puts at your fingertips.

Learn how to

  • Kill viruses, worms, Trojans, and spyware
  • Give Spam the curb and smash web bugs
  • Understand just how public your “private” blogs are
  • Keep wireless freeloaders off your network
  • Safeguard your parents’ credit card and financial data
  • Understand what tools you need and how to tweak them
