Useful Tips


The internet

  • If you don’t want to be inundated with junk email avoid giving out your email
    address
    unnecessarily.
  • Only give credit card details if you are sure you are on a secure Web Page (indicated by
    a small padlock icon)
  • Never send credit card details by email.
  • When choosing passwords, try not to make it too obvious.  A combination of letters
    and numbers is the best option.
  • When talking in chat rooms remember you don’t know who you are talking to, they could be
    anyone.
     
  • Be cautious when opening attachments within
    emails (especially from unknown sources) as these can often contain a
    virus or
  • phishing codes.

useful tip:-

A very useful free anti-virus site is
https://www.eset.com/int/home/online-scanner/
It’s free, contains no ‘nagging’ pop-ups, and is very up-to-date. This has
worked when better known programs have failed. Once the program is running,
it is takes quite some processing time – about two hours on my laptop – but
is very thorough. I run Eset about every couple of months to double-check
that all is okay. I have used it for nearly three years now.

Insurance

If you are unfortunate enough to have an accident
involving a foreign lorry then bear in mind that many overseas lorries have
a different number plate for the cabin part to that of the trailer.

Ensure you take note of both numbers as these will be
required by your insurance company.
