OnGuard Online - Concise Internet Safety Videos from the FTC

OnGuard Online is a series of sixteen videos from the Federal Trade Commission. The videos provide concise lessons about topics in Internet Safety. I discovered the series while looking for a video about public wi-fi security (or lack thereof) to share with a friend of mine who spends a lot of time on a local coffee shop's wi-fi network. Besides wi-fi network security OnGuard Online covers topics like avoiding malware, recognizing phishing scams, and responsible sharing on social media. The video is embedded below.


Applications for Education
The OnGuard Online video about wi-fi security is a good one for students who are taking school-issued laptops, Chromebooks, or tablets home with them and eventually using them on public wi-fi networks.
