Protect online safety for Baby Boomers and Silent Generation.
The internet can be a great place to stay connected, but it is important to stay safe while online. Baby Boomers and the Silent Generation may not be digital natives, but they are just as concerned about online security and privacy as Gen Z. Unfortunately, they are also the target of online scams and hackers. It is important to ensure that they know how to stay safe and protect their valuable, private information while on the internet.
One way to stay safe is to be aware of phishing scams. These are emails or text messages that pretend to be someone else and ask for personal information like social security numbers or bank account numbers. It is important to be aware of these and not to respond.
Another way to stay safe is to have strong passwords. Password manager apps can help to create and remember strong passwords. Two-factor authentication is also an excellent security tool that is widely available and can help to protect valuable information.
Finally, social media can be a great way to stay connected, but it is important to not overshare information like home address or place of work. Be aware of online quizzes that ask for personal information, as these can be used to access private information.
By following these tips, Baby Boomer and Silent Generations can stay safe online and protect their valuable, private information.
