As we engage with others more and more online it is critically important that we understand how to protect our information, activities, and reputations. This free class, presented in layman’s terms, will lay out some of the risks and teach you how to minimize those to protect yourself online. Topics will include “no tracking,” cookies, browsers, passwords, and danger signs. It will also describe a free tool for managing your online identities.
