What is the ‘Status Bar’, and How it Protects You

 

10:08

In every Web browser (the program you use to browse the Web, such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari) and most email programs, there is something called a status bar at the bottom of the window that gives you info about the web page you’re visiting (or the email you’re reading), as well as tells you where links will take you if you click on them.

In this video lesson I show you how to turn the status bar on if you don’t see it, and how to use it to verify that links in emails take you to the place you expect them to, which can help protect you by avoiding scams such as “phishing scams”

What is the ‘Status Bar’ & How it Can Help Protect You

 

10:08

In every Web browser (the program you use to browse the Web, such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari) and most email programs, there is something called a status bar at the bottom of the window that gives you info about the web page you’re visiting (or the email you’re reading), as well as tells you where links will take you if you click on them.

Tips for Spotting Dangerous Email “Phishing” Scams

 

23:09

This lesson dovetails with the previous lesson and shows you examples of three different scam emails of a type known as a “phishing” scam.

A phishing scam involves tricking an unsuspecting computer user into providing personal information such as account passwords, bank account numbers, credit card numbers, social security numbers, etc. for the purpose of identity theft.

Arming yourself with the knowledge to protect yourself is your first line of defense.

Critically Important Lesson to Protect Yourself From Online Scam Sites That Are Out To Infect Your Computer

 

23:09

A recent study revealed that 63% of people in the study were not able to tell the difference between a real and a fake popup warning message, and so were falling for a common online scam which is designed to infect your computer.

Since the people in the study were warned ahead of time that they would be getting a mix of legit and fake messages, the fact that 63% of them still couldn’t tell the difference between the two tells me that the number is probably much worse in the real world.

This video lesson is designed to help protect you by showing you several things to look for that should help tip you off when you encounter a fake (scam) error message while browsing the web
