A new online safety calendar application you can download for free to your computer reminds you of important internet safety actions you should be taking.
To talk about this new free consumer service, Komo TV interviewed Linda Criddle, president of LOOKBOTHWAYS who spends a good deal of each day trying to protect people who go online from the bad guys in cyber-space.
Working with Microsoft, her company, LOOKBOTHWAYS LLC, has developed a clever new way to fight the crooks and make you a smarter computer user. The online safety calendar is a monthly pop-up that reminds you of important things you should do.
“There’s a section for everyone, any age, if you’re an Internet user, you need to be thinking about these things,” Criddle said. “There’s a section specifically for parents or caregivers as they’re trying to take care of kids. And we have a section that appears some months, where there’s an event you should be doing, whether it’s time to change your password, or it’s time to check your credit history.”
