Did you know that it easy for the next person using the machine, after you've finished with it, to get your information from it?
You didn't? Well you do now.
How can this be? I thought once I'd finished, that was it. It all went ......... What did you THINK happened to it?
Did you know that ALL Windows installations come wide open and set up for people to steal your information as standard. Now that is very scary. Very few, if any, internet cafes are set up so they don't store your information.
Just remember, an internet cafe includes your local lending library and ANY public place that has a computer for you to use.
I've had reports from people who have been able to go to a public computer, go on-line and pick up peoples personal details, including card numbers and passwords without any problem. If they were that way inclined, they could now be on-line as you!
Now do you understand why your bank and credit card company advise you not to use public computers for on-line purchases or internet banking?
If you have a computer at home, it's likely to be the same for you as well unless you've already changed the settings in your internet options. Fear not, it's relatively easy to make your browsing a lot safer without it costing a single penny. It's one of the first things I do for every client. Just drop me a line and I'll tell you how.
