Microsoft has sponsored the creation of a new, free, Internet Safety Calendar application, that consumers can download to their Internet Explorer browser (Note: only IE is supported at this time).
To access the new Internet Safety Calendar application, go to Microsoft’s http://www.microsoft.com/protect/resources/addon.aspx.
Built by LOOKBOTHWAYS, the calendar provides relevant monthly advice to help you increase your online safety whether you’re looking out for your own safety, or you are a parent watching over your family’s safety. The calendar also includes reminders for recurring those safety actions you know you should be doing, but that frequently get forgotten in the rush of day-to-day activities.
Each month, the calendar will send you a note reminding you to check the calendar for important online safety advice, but you can also view the app at any time by selecting Online Safety Calendar under the Tools menu.
Here’s a view of the Online Safety Calendar application, and September’s content for parents:
It’s easy to improve your safety with just a few simple actions each month.
