As unstructured summertime looms, kids and teens are likely to be spending more time on the Internet. Now, a free download is available to help them keep themselves safer both online and while using a cell phone.
Own Your Space is an Internet security book that teaches youths and even their parents how to keep themselves “and their stuff” safer online.
“With the rise of high-technology communications within the teen population, this is the obvious solution to an increasingly ubiquitous problem: how to deliver solid, easy-to-understand Internet security information into their hands? By putting it on the Internet and their hard drives, for free,” said Linda McCarthy, former Senior Director of Internet Safety at Symantec.
“In this age of unsafe-Internet and risky-texting practices that have led to the deaths and the jailing of minors, I’m thankful for everyone who works toward and sponsors our advocacy to keep more youth safe while online and on cell phones,” McCarthy said.
