That’s the message from an action group of organisations working together to safeguard and protect older people in Wales.
Many older people throughout Wales have been getting online recently – some for the first time – to stay connected with loved ones and access vital information and services during lockdown.
And with a few simple actions – actions we should all be taking – including using strong passwords and security software, and ensuring that apps and operating systems are kept up to date, older people can enjoy all of the benefits of being online whilst also protecting themselves from potential security risks.
The Get Safe Online website – www.getsafeonline.org – provides a wide range of easy-to-understand guidance and information relating to online safety, as well as useful tips and updates on the latest scams to look out for.
