Tips and internet security
Make sure you remember your password but also make it hard for others to guess. It may be a good idea to write it down and keep it somewhere secure in case you ever forget.
If someone you don't know writes you and asks you for money, or tells you that you have won something, be skeptical. There are many scams out there that have cost good people a lot of money.
Try not to open emails sent from people you don't know since they may contain viruses. Just delete them without opening them.
Remember to log out of your email account if you share your computer with others; otherwise, they will be able to read all of your email and use your account.
