Installing anti-virus software can help keep you safe online.

Your computer can be infected by malware in a number of ways, including:

  • clicking on false website links
  • visiting websites that have been infected by malware
  • downloading infected apps and files from the internet
  • opening infected email attachments. 

When you first install anti-virus software on a device, run a 'full scan' of the system to ensure there are no pre-existing virus infections, and then set up regular scans.

Important: Install anti-virus software on all devices and set the software to automatically check for updates on a daily basis.
