Links Computers around the Globe using World Wide Web (WWW)

Your computer can be use to connect to the Internet, a network that links computers around the world. Surfing the web is available for a data fee in most urban areas, and increasingly, in less populated areas. With Internet, you can communicate with people all over the world and read vast amount of information.

Here are some of the most popular things to do with computers:

1. The World Wide Web is a big-bytes of data and gigantic storehouse of information. The web contains millions of websites and billions of webpages. Just use search engines to dig those important data that you need.

2. Surfing the web can find information on the web about almost any topic imaginable. For example, you can read news stories and movie reviews, check airline schedules, see street maps, get the weather forecast for your city, or research a health condition. Reference sources, such as dictionaries and encyclopedias, are also widely available.

3. The Internet is also a shopper's delight. You can browse and purchase products—books, music, toys, clothing, electronics, and much more—at the websites of major retailers.

4. Watching Movies, TV Shows and Video Clips is now unimaginably easier than before.

Tips for safely using e-mail and the web

E-mail or electronic mail is a convenient way to communicate with others using computers. When you send an e-mail message, it arrives instantly in the recipient's e-mail inbox. You can send e-mail to many people simultaneously, and save, print, and forward e-mail to others. You don't need any postage stamp!

1. Caution: E-mail attachments such as files attached to e-mail messages are a primary source of virus infection. Never open a file attachment from someone you don't know.

2. Be careful when clicking hyperlinks in e-mail messages. Hyperlinks are links that open to websites when you click them.

3. If a website asks for a credit card number, bank information, or other personal information, make sure that you trust the website and is secure.

[Updated] Understanding security and safe computing

If you share your computer to other people and using old versions like Windows 98 and below, you should take steps to protect your computer from harm.

Why? People can connect by breaking into your computer.

Anyway, If you use the latest version of Windows like Windows 7 and 10, using the Internet is now safe.
 
Protecting your computer
These are several ways to help protect your computer against potential security threats:

1. Firewall. A firewall can help protect your computer by making sure the right access port and exe file that is permitted.

FIY: Windows Firewall is built into Windows and is turned on automatically.

2. Using a Standard user account, http://unlockforus.blogspot.com/2020/12/why-use-standard-user-account-user-mode.html

3. At Windows, UAC is still recommended.

4. Password or PIN feature is recommended

5. An account manager to user password, firewall, user rights and UAC is completely alright.

A Standard User Account
There are three different types of user accounts: standard, administrator, and guest.

An administrator account provides control over a computer, using a standard account can help make your computer more secure.

That way, if other people gain access to your computer while you are logged on, they can't tamper with the computer's security settings or change other user accounts.

Why use a standard user account (User mode) instead of an administrator account like XP?

The standard user account can help protect your PC or laptop by preventing users from making changes that can affect ALL who uses the computer.

We recommend creating a standard user account for each user.

When you are logged-in to Windows with a standard useraccount, you can do almost anything that you can do with administrator login, but if you want to do something that affects other users of the computer such as installing software, Windows might ask you to provide a password for the account.

The following table provides a description of the UAC settings and the potential impact of each setting to the security of your computer.

From Microsoft:

"We recommend that you log on to your computer with a standard user account most of the time. You can browse the Internet, send e-mail, and use a word processor, all without an administrator account. When you want to perform an administrative task, such as installing a new program or changing a setting that will affect other users, you don't have to switch to an administrator account; Windows will prompt you for permission or an administrator password before performing the task. We also recommend that you create standard user accounts for all the people who use your computer."
