Description - Always Use Protection by Dan Appleman

* Appleman is a well-known, bestselling author of computing titles; has a great writing style and has valuable input/review on content from a teen focus group of technology users. * Contains the fundamentals that every teen should know: emphasizes protection of computers from viruses, and privacy issues (including identity theft), not just the usual online security that is hyped by the media. Emphasizes topics of interest to teens - for example: security on instant messaging and configuring firewalls for online gaming. * Unlike other security books written for parents, this book is written to empower teens to protect themselves and their computers. It requires no effort on the part of parents beyond buying the book and handing it to their teens. * Offers practical, well-researched much needed advice on how to protect teens and create a more secure home computing environment. (The author's survey showed over 50% of teens have had a computer virus. A recent Newsweek article describes how Oberlin college found viruses on 90% of the Windows machines of incoming freshmen).
