Six Safe Internet Practices I Follow

  1. I block and report WhatsApp messages from unrecognized numbers that message me.
  2. I’m wary of phishing emails. I avoid clicking random links.
  3. I look for secure websites that have https rather than just http.
  4. I always go by the principle “If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. ”The other day I received a WhatsApp message from some random number, and they said they would pay me INR 2000 per day just for ‘liking’ a few Instagram posts. I blocked and reported them.
  5. I avoid downloading apps I don’t need or that sound unfamiliar.
  6. I don’t participate in voting for contestants if the voting form asks too many intrusive questions.
