How to get three FREE online security products in 2013 (McAfee Anti-Virus Plus)

How to get three FREE online security products in 2013 (McAfee Anti-Virus Plus)

Why is Online Security Important?

In order to truly understand why having Internet security system is important, you should first understand all of the threats that are out there in the virtual world. With that being said, let’s take a look at some of the online risks that exist.



Also known as “Unauthorized Networking Access”, hacking is when someone attempt to steal online information without authorized permission. Keep in mind that a savvy hacker can get access to online accounts and as well as retrieve passwords for them. Once they have access to these accounts, they’ll be in full control and will be able to use it to their liking. Hackers can steal credit card information as well as wipe out your online bank account if they get passed your free Internet security.

Spamming and E-Mail Fraud

One of the more common Internet threats today is known as “Phishing”.  This is basically when someone attempts to steal your personal information via e-mails and instant messaging. Most of the time they will ask for more than just basic information- like bank account numbers and personal addresses. Once this information is acquired by the person behind it, he or she can use this information as they please. Sometimes they will sell this information to other hackers.


Others will simply use it for their own benefit. Spamming is another common tactic that would damage your privacy. If you’ve ever opened your e-mail box and saw hundreds of annoying messages regarding advertising then you already know what spamming is. Spammers are individuals who will also sell your personal information to other online agencies and as a result you’ll be bombarded with even more spam e-mails and messages
