ANITHA on September 02, 2009

Microsoft is attempting to provide a critical solution through their new online safety website to increase online safety, through education.

“Microsoft has been very active in providing online safety information for over a decade. Our newest effort is our redesigned Consumer Online Safety Education website at www.microsoft.com/protect. This site is designed for parents, caregivers, and educators to find the latest information on a number of online safety topics,” reads a message from a member of the Microsoft Privacy Team.

Microsoft's new website is designed to offer users the necessary resources to protect their machines, themselves and their families. In this regard, the main areas of interest are related to avoiding online fraud and to enforcing data protection. Microsoft has an entire corner of the Consumer Online Safety Education website dedicated to getting security support. The section offers users a range of resources from free PC scans to individual chat support.

“All of the content has been updated to address “Web 2.0” safety topics, including spoof websites, online donation scams, public Wi-Fi safety, online reputation management, cyberbullying, social networks, and blogging. Other new features include: Resources – including safety brochures and event planning guides. Community section – featuring online forums and top safety bloggers. Comics – covering topics such as cyberbullying and privacy. Videos – safety PSA and other educational materials,” the Microsoft Privacy Team representative added.
