Safer Internet: Introduction: Audience


  • dogYou -- "ordinary" users with willingness to:
  • Explore settings on your computers/devices and read articles
    -- or if you're not DIY, at least understand the risks/issues (and show to your 'techie')
  • Take action: make some immediate changes, and create a plan for later actions,
    while avoiding procrastination, panic, guilt or information overload
  • Ask questions, especially about jargon (or see PC Glossary definitions of Computer and Internet Terms)
