Computer Service Unveils New Security Drive
All Fort Lauderdale computer repair services know full well that safety is becoming a bigger concern every day, and nowhere is this more true than when it comes to minors' use of the Internet.
It's more than a South Florida problem, of course - Internet security and protection has become a global concern.
In a bid to raise the level of awareness and child safety in the modern computer atmosphere, a leading computer service in the UK has launched a security drive in order to better inform its consumer base.
Computer chain PC World has this week announced a new scheme that will see its staff specifically trained in various aspects of security-related set-up regarding its desktop and laptop products.
Recent surveys of Fort Lauderdale computer repair experts reveal - not surprisingly - a growing level of parental concern regarding Internet use by children.
Moreover, 80 percent of polled parents expressed great concern over kids' online habits and overall computer safety.
Despite the fact that children markedly more technically minded than in years past, they are still susceptible to wide-ranging schemes - some of which carry potentially disastrous consequences.
In response, the company will issue to all customers purchasing desktop computers and laptops a complimentary disc containing advice and direction on how parents can keep children safe online.
The product has been produced by Childnet International, a non-profit group dedicated to making the Internet a safer place for minors.
On a one-to-one basis, computer repair experts will also be trained in how to show concerned parents the best way to implement security software features integral to the Microsoft Vista operating system.
It's something all Broward County computer users should keep in mind. Whether you use this product or not, keeping kids safe not only saves money in future computer repair costs - it saves lives.
