COMPUTER SECURITY AND PASSWORDS

IMPORTANT: you should review your computer security at all times.

PASSWORDS: It is also important to set up accounts with hard-to-hack passwords. An example of that would be a password with both letter and numbers in it. I personally make a different password for each place I go and put it in a notebook, so I don't forget it.

SECURITY FOR YOUR COMPUTER:

Do you have a firewall and an anti-virus program? You really need one of each. Some combine both in one package. If you don't have these programs, you can check them out for free before you buy them.

HERE ARE SOME FREE TRIAL DOWNLOADS of Security programs for Mac and PC computers
