The 9 to 13 October 2017 is Stay Smart Online Week #SSOW17 and AWSN is pleased to share the tips to stay smart online,

Your personal and financial information — like your address,
birthday or telephone number — can be used by cyber
criminals, so limit the personal information you share online.
¨    Check the privacy settings on your social media accounts and apps to control the amount and type of information you want to share.
¨    Use a separate email address for shopping, discussion groups and newsletters.

¨    Only share your primary email address with people you know.
