Internet and Family Security

By: Base Spy


Protecting your family in today's world is incrementally more difficult than it used to be. Before, you could just educate your kids on what to look out for, keep a close eye on them, and make sure they were using the buddy system. Today, they have access to all sorts of devices to get on the internet, where many dangers lurk and seem to be getting increasingly better at disguising themselves. Even adults, well educated in the dangers of the internet, can sometimes be fooled by a brilliant disguise which turns out to be a scam and costs them either some personal information or, in many cases, money.

The first step to protecting yourself and your children is setting guidelines and educating them on the lurking dangers. Guidelines can serve as a way to keep your family from getting into a bad situation to begin with. For example, if they are on a social site, such as Facebook, make sure they speak only to people they know in person. This way, it is far less likely a stranger with sinister intentions can befriend them and draw them into their trap. Education will help them to know what tricks scammers and known predators are using. Knowing the tricks can help your children avoid them and helps them learn what the patterns are, so they can identify new tricks on their own.

With the increasingly crafty nature of online predators, some added protection is probably a good idea. Technology doesn't only have to be a problem with your family's security, it can also be a solution. One of the first things to help out with online safety of everyone is a monitoring program. A program like this can record all online activity, whether it is on the computer or a cell phone. This will help with monitoring and ensure that everyone is following the guidelines, even while you are away. It can also help catch anyway who attempts or succeeds in tricking a member of your family. Installing a program like this without discussing it with your family may lead to them feeling as if their privacy has been invaded; therefore, the best course of action is to talk to them about it before you install it. This will also give you a good opportunity to explain how and why it is for their safety.

Another great way to protect your family, especially if you have younger children, is with a GPS tracker. Today's GPS trackers can be small and inconspicuous. Small enough that they can be attached or hidden by a piece of jewelry or clothing so no one knows itís there. In the event of someone getting lost or abducted, these trackers can be the determining factor for a quick and safe return.

When looking into buying any type of Surveillance equipment to help with your family's safety, be sure to find a retailer who is experienced with the equipment. This way, you can expect to receive quality equipment that will have the highest standard of performance. When it comes to your family's safety, you do not want sub-par equipment that may not work properly when it is needed most.
