In all the hubbub over Brexit, don't click on random links or attachments about UK's future or "what will this mean to me?" - and don't let your guard down when using the internet. Criminals thrive on confusion! www.getsafeonline.org

If you have WhatsApp on your Android mobile and get a message like this offering you 'WhatsApp Gold', delete it. It's s scam and you'll download malware on to your device. https://www.getsafeonline.org/news/fake-whatsapp-gold-link-results-in-malware/

Last year, Action Fraud received over 4,900 reports from Brits who had been ripped off in holiday frauds. Don’t become another statistic. ‪#‎TakeYourBreak‬ https://www.getsafeonline.org/s…/holiday-and-travel-booking/

Online Safety Campaign from the UK, sponsored by Government and the Private Sector
Introduction

Get Safe Online is the UK’s leading source of unbiased, factual and easy-to-understand information on online safety.

Our website is a unique resource providing practical advice on how to protect yourself, your computer or mobile device and your business against fraud, identity theft, viruses and many other problems encountered online. It contains guidance on many other related subjects too – including performing backups and how to avoid theft or loss of your computer, smartphone or tablet. Every conceivable topic is included on the site – including safe online shopping, gaming and dating … so now you really can stay safe with everything you do online.

The site also keeps you up to date with news, tips and stories from around the world.

Get Safe Online is not only a website, however, as we also organise national events - such as Get Safe Online week, this year planned for October 22-26th, and awareness campaigns across the media.

Get Safe Online is a jointly funded initiative between several Government departments and private sector businesses. In fact, we are the Government’s preferred online security advice channel.
