What is internet safety and why is it important for you

The importance of Internet safety in between a variety of information, personal data, and property protection is really important. Internet safety is more important for users while accessing online banking services and shopping.

Global computer networks provide us various communication and information exchange facilities. In which big to small users of the internet cheated on the internet. Cyber and computer crime is increasing today. Around the world, the use of the internet in our daily life is increased.

The use of the web in online bill payment, shopping, payment services, internet banking, mobile banking, and now digital wallets look convincing for users. That’s why the internet is a good source for hackers, thieves, and pickers too to collect any confidential information from any country. So, these are the reasons for the importance of internet security today around the globe.

Internet technology impacted our lives since its inception. It’s important for every citizen of the country to use the internet safely and securely without leaking private information. Today you can see various cybercrime and about the people cheated on the internet. Even big companies, banking, government websites are hacked and information is leaked very often. So, you can analyze the importance of Internet security for the common people of India and other countries.

Internet safety is important to secure online transactions and while using digital wallets in mobiles.  Especially kids, teenagers, and less computer and internet literate people cheated more on the Internet. It’s really important for parents to check that aren’t they falling into trap of harmful activities online.

Generally, the internet does not harm us until we choose to react to suspicious content and websites. The first reason for internet harm is when you don’t know what you’re doing. The second reason when other force or entice you to react or click on links such as attractive ads, infected software download, and messages.

If digital wallet users or net banking user is not familiar with the malicious entities present online then it will create a high risk to lose money and personal data. Even it’s not a guarantee that you’re money in digital wallets and bank account is safe after installing anti-hacking, antivirus apps, and firewall integration. But awareness about cybercriminal, internet security, and safety knowledge helps us to prevent malicious activities on the internet.

Cybercriminals can be kids, teenagers, professionals, and big companies. They use fake IP addresses, email accounts, social media profiles to track people. They change their IP addresses to another country. Also, they steal private information when people carelessly share it with unknown people or on social media networks, reply to fake emails, etc. That’s why it’s very important to reply only for trusted inputs on the internet. And teenagers and kids need to connect only with those people who they know personally. Such security and safety practices are really effective to avoid hackers and spam internet users.

Life without the internet is possible but then it’s really hard. Governments are increasing and promoting digital transactions, digital wallets, and all kinds of cashless transaction methods. This is good. But banks need to keep upgrading their ATMs, Internet banking applications, wallets, etc.  The government needs to create a proper solution and easy compliant method for online banking users when such fraud happens. It’s less practical to advertise digital transactions when you don’t have enough cybersecurity infrastructures. And most people don’t’ know the difference between HTTP and HTTPS. HTTPS is most recommended to see before online transactions, you can see it before www in the browser URL. HTTPS is recommended for all kinds of websites where people pay the bill, transfer money, and buy something.

We not only need to do the marketing of the cashless economy but also it’s really important to make people aware of cybercrime. And most important what villager will do if his/her money or banking account or wallets are hacked or fraud is happening. What they will do? Where they compliant? How soon their money will be recovered? Who will be responsible? Such things are really important to aware users about it.

The safety on the internet is also important for users because in most cases banks will find users responsible for internet fraud and the government will say IP address is outside of India so they can’t do abcd.  Bank will say it is your mistake. So, what common people of India will do? Let’s understand this: Cashless transaction is a service introduced for a citizen with the regulation of RBI and banks (mobile banking apps). Citizens are customers of banks and banking apps. So, the government needs to address the problems citizens are facing such as cyber-crime or online banking frauds. That’s why it’s very important to educate the people of India but also give clear guidelines to the bank and mobile wallets about their privacy and security reports. Internet safety is not only important for banks and government but also consumers as I told above that they need to get knowledge about internet banking. Many websites, YouTube Videos, and news media guiding you about the best way to use the internet on mobile and computer while using credit and debit cards.

More than the marketing budget of Digital transactions spends on advertising, it’s really important that they will also spend some amount of Time and Money to advertise cyber-crime awareness and solutions. Governments need a special cyber army and police who can solve digital people’s problems within time. Also, judges and special complaint form in every city can be the solution that handles and solve internet fraud cases.  Internet safety knowledge is also important for kids and the common people of India. We can as good citizens can share knowledge with each other. That makes people aware to use the internet and digital money without worrying about hacking.

So, according to the above fears and facts, you can say that the importance of internet safety is very important for everyone around this world.
