Security is an understandable concern for many Internet users. Many online resources use established and accepted methods to protect the customer’s data. For example, some websites will display a yellow lock symbol in the bottom right corner of your browser; if the yellow lock is in the locked position, this indicates an encrypted (protected) session. However, the effectiveness of the encryption is dependent on the setting of the web browser software on your computer. This makes any transaction conducted over the REVON service equally secured to those done over any ISP.
Precautions to Take
There are precautions that should always be taken for added security. Computer security is the responsibility of the subscriber. See below:
- Install firewall software on your computer. Examples of these are ZoneAlarm, Lockdown or BlackICE Defender.
- Make sure that your file and print sharing remains disabled. By default, they are disabled with most operating systems.
- Do not open any email attachments or downloaded files without first virus-scanning them.
- Ensure that you have the most up-to-date virus lists loaded into your virus scanner and check often for updates.
- Perform regular backups of all important files as a safeguard against data loss. Remember — your data is only as safe as the last backup.
