Hi Chris, in order for us to  browse safely on the internet, we must first know how data travels before it gets into your computer. Along the information highway, once you seek something on the web, before that data is receive in your computer, it traveled from one server after another, and along the way someone might be monitoring that server to get some useful information from you.  One of the most basic threat is phishing. It will make you believe you got into the website you’re looking for, but was deceived by an illegitimate website. So here are some basic internet safe habits to observe in your daily browsing:

1. When making online transactions which requires you to input sensitive information make sure it is a secured site. You can see https on it’s url or the uniform resource locator.

2. Never, ever click links when a suspicious pop up box appears on your screen.

3. As much as possible if you really need to download a software, make sure it comes from a legitimate source, otherwise it may be a malicious software, or a virus in disguise.

4. Above all, make sure you have a very reliable anti-virus software installed in your computer. There are so many anti-virus and anti-spyware software available from legitimate companies like AVG, Avast etc.
