Microsoft Online Safety Tips

Safety tips for using a public computer - from Microsoft.com

Public computers in libraries, Internet cafes, airports, and copy shops can be safe if you follow a few simple rules when you use them.

Read these tips to help keep your work, personal, or financial information private.

  1. Don't save your logon information
    Always log out of websites by clicking "log out" on the site. It's not enough to simply close the browser window or type in another address.
     
    Many programs (especially social networking websites, web mail, and instant messenger programs) include automatic login features that will save your user name and password. Disable this option so no one can log in as you.
     
  2. Don't leave the computer unattended with sensitive information on the screen
    If you have to leave the public computer, log out of all programs and close all windows that might display sensitive information.

  3. Erase your tracks 
    Internet Explorer offers InPrivate browsing that leaves no trace of specific web activity. For more information, see Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 help.

    Internet Explorer also keeps a record of your passwords and every page you visit, even after you've closed them and logged out.

    Disable the feature that stores passwords
    Before you go to the web, turn off the Internet Explorer feature that "remembers" your passwords.
    1. In Internet Explorer, click Tools , and then click Internet Options.
    2. Click the Content tab, and then click Settings, next to AutoComplete.
    3. Click to clear the check box for User names on passwords and forms
       
  4. Watch for over-the-shoulder snoops 
    When you use a public computer, be on the look out for thieves who look over your shoulder or watch as you enter sensitive passwords to collect your information. 
     
  5. Don't enter sensitive information into a public computer 
    These measures provide some protection against casual hackers who use a public computer after you have. 

    But keep in mind that an industrious thief might have installed sophisticated software on the public computer that records every keystroke and then emails that information back to the thief. 

    Then it doesn't matter if you haven't saved your information or if you've erased your tracks. They still have access to this information. 

    If you really want to be safe, avoid typing your credit card number or any other financial or otherwise sensitive information into any public computer.

Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) Program

We are excited to share that North Carolina just received approval for the Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) program to help more families purchase food during the COVID-19 pandemic. The P-EBT program provides a benefit on an EBT card to North Carolina families whose children have access to free and reduced lunch at school.

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) is working to operationalize the program and P-EBT recipients will receive this benefit in coming weeks. More than 800,000 children are expected to receive help buying food through the P-EBT program.

Families will not need to apply for the P-EBT program. P-EBT eligible families already receiving Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) benefits will receive an additional benefit on their existing EBT card. P-EBT eligible families not already enrolled in FNS will be mailed a new EBT card in the next few weeks. Families who receive a new EBT card will receive a letter from DHHS in the mail explaining how to activate and use their card.

NCDHHS, working in collaboration with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, requested activation of the P-EBT program for North Carolina families to use during school closures. This request was approved earlier today by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
