Online Safety

Using the Internet in the privacy of your own home can feel like a safe and private activity. However, the virtual world is not without its real world dangers. Online predators can use leaked personal information to access people's bank accounts or bully unsuspecting victims. Consumers should exercise caution when they are online to ensure that their personal information remains private. FindLaw's Online Safety section provides the basics of online safety, including email privacy and how to stay safe while shopping online. You can also find an overview of spam emails, as well as articles about online auction fraud and the implications of posting photos of your kids online.
