As kids go back to school and use the family PC for homework and play, keep these safety and security tips in mind:

1)      Protect Your Family’s Personal Info – Families today need comprehensive security protection. McAfee SecurityCenter  from Dell  features McAfee Active Protection™ technology which instantly analyzes and blocks new threats in milliseconds so there’s no dangerous gaps in protection.

2)      Hall Monitors are Needed – Parents should always monitor children’s use of the Internet. Consider using a family protection software, which lets adults say “yes” to children’s online interests.  It keeps children of all ages safe from exposure to inappropriate content, social networking risks, strangers, and other online threats.

3)      Don’t Talk to Strangers -Teach kids to ignore emails and instant messages from people they don’t know.

4)      Nothing is “Free” – Remind children to avoid free downloads like screensavers, surveys and online club registrations as these “freebies” can include hidden spyware and adware programs.

5)      Teamwork is the Key – Work with your child to discuss boundaries of what is appropriate and what isn’t. Sign a pledge together to ensure ultimate protection. You will find an example pledge here.

6)      Monitor  Time – Set time limits for online surfing and ban late-night use.
