basics of cyber-safety
well hai there being that is in exsistance
a couple of thinges have ticked me off about how people look after they're cyber-safety.
So number 1:
an example i'm going to use is on
scratch I saw some kid say that someone had offered them candy and if they gave their address then the candy would be sent over to them
guess what happened (a the kid refused to give them their address (b that talking cactus got eaten by a squid or (c they actually gave their addres?
if you chose b then you are wrong the cactus was apparantly to spiky but if cooked maybe the squid would have eaten it…
if you chose a then… you took a big
meaning that: C is the correct answer.
Yes this happened in scratch the website where apparntly NoThING CaN gO WrOnGhitfgriut9othet
so firstly WHAT THE HECC BRO ARE YOU SKUNKED LIKE FAM IF ANYONE OFFERS YOU CANDY THAT IS A STRANGER AND NOT WORKING FOR SOME FLIPPIN SHOP OFFERING SAMPLES OR A REGISTERED CHARITY THEN WHY YOU ACCEPTING THE SWEETS, ARE YOU SKUNKED ARE YOU SKUNKED G ALLOW IT FAM…
on a social media you should never give your address to anyone no matter how trusted they are or how much time you have know the person, its literally one of the first thinges you learn in IT/ICT please note that I am not saying don't buy products that mean you having to give your address off the internet I am talking about social media
also I use this example because it is another thing, adults should be teaching basic stuff like this to their kids from an early age when ICT is not a big priority in school,
another thing is phone numbers, once again never give them away to anyone you may find on social media (personal numbers not buisness numbers) as its not impposible for your phone to be tracked.
meeting people you meet on social media in real life is always a risk however no-one can stop you, the way to avoid predetors is to get a friend to go to the location and make sure the person is there and also meet in a crowded area and don't leak where about you live in the city
these are deadly when it comes to online saftey and privacy, most apps require you to put in your age, common interests, where you live, and a profile picture, job, bi about yourself,
here is a short example of privacy being deaded
area lived in: (unpopulated town)
conversation with stranger:
ex2: hello there
ex1: just coming back from work
ex2: oh cool what school do you work at
ex1: inserts school name here
boom now ex2 can track you down to your house, they know your age, hobbies, and how you look like in your profil picture
which brings me to our next point
work places or school, collage, or uni (unless you go to MIT or Harvard then you can flex) should be kept private at all times on places like repl.it or youtube or yada yada yada for lots of reason, e.g. if you say what school you go to then yeh lol rip we will leave it at that
also it depends what info you give that can breach basic privacy rules e.g. I would bever give my full name or surname because the internet has too many sources to find out more about me (unless of course I am famous and everything is on google and wiki…) but if you do give your full name I reccomend youd on't give info like where you work or if you have a profile picture of you I reccommend you leave it at that.
I will be making more tutorials in fact every month there will be a new topic this months topic is basic privacy next tutorial will be on phishing, blagging viruses etc,
bai please remeber to upvote reddit posts that are not related to this lol
