Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What should you do if anyone writes something abusive to or about you on the internet

    • A.

      Ignore it and hope it goes away.

    • B.

      Shut the computer and throw it across the room.

    • C.

      Tell a parent or adult.

    • D.

      Send an abusive message back to the person who wrote it.

    • E.

      Inform the prime minister.

    Correct Answer
    C. Tell a parent or adult.
    Explanation
    If someone writes something abusive to or about you on the internet, it is important to tell a parent or adult. They can provide guidance and support on how to handle the situation appropriately. Ignoring it may not make it go away, and responding with an abusive message will only escalate the situation. Informing the prime minister is not a practical solution for dealing with online abuse.

  • 2. 

    I should put personal information on the internet where anyone can see it.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Putting personal information on the internet where anyone can see it is not recommended because it can lead to privacy and security risks. Sharing personal information publicly can make individuals vulnerable to identity theft, fraud, and other malicious activities. It is important to be cautious and only share personal information with trusted sources or platforms that have secure privacy settings.

    If a website wants your name and email so they can enter you in a contest, is it ok to enter?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    It is not okay to enter your name and email on a website for a contest if you are unsure about the website's credibility or if you are not interested in receiving promotional emails or potential spam. Providing personal information without knowing how it will be used can put your privacy and security at risk. It is important to be cautious and only share personal information with trusted sources.

    Rate this question:

  • 4.

    • A.

      A 50 letter long word

    • B.

      Something that is easy for you to remember, but hard for others to guess

    • C.

      The numbers 123456789

    • D.

      Your username

    Correct Answer
    B. Something that is easy for you to remember, but hard for others to guess
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Something that is easy for you to remember, but hard for others to guess." This is because a strong password should be memorable for the user, but difficult for others to guess or crack. A 50-letter long word may be difficult to remember and type accurately. The numbers 123456789 are a weak password as they are a simple sequence and easily guessable. Including the username in the password can also make it easier for others to guess. Therefore, the best option is a password that is easy for the user to remember but hard for others to guess.

    • C.

      Public (Friends of friends)

    • D.

      Public (Everyone)

    Correct Answer
    A. Private (only you)
    Explanation
    The best account setting to be as safe as possible is to set it to private, allowing only you to access your account. This ensures that your personal information and content are not visible to anyone else, reducing the risk of unauthorized access or misuse of your account.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    If your internet banking profile is being hacked, the best course of action is to call the providers and shut down the profile. This is because shutting down the profile will prevent the hackers from accessing your personal and financial information, protecting you from potential harm and unauthorized transactions. It is important to take immediate action to minimize any potential damage and to ensure the security of your accounts.
