If your children have an email account, they probably have received junk e-mail, also known as spam. The following are some safety tips to protect your children from spam:
Use anti-virus and anti-spyware software, and a firewall, and keep them up-to-date to protect them from receiving spam.
Delete junk e-mail messages without opening them. Sometimes even opening spam can alert spammers.
Don't believe everything you read in spam emails.
Don’t reply or forward any junk email.
