Maintaining PC Security

Maintaining Secure Passwords

Ensuring you use an up to date Browser
Please ensure all of the browsers that you use to access and edit your website should be the latest version of either Internet Explorer, Chrome, Opera or Safari. Find out if you are using the latest version of your browser here https://www.whatismybrowser.com/
Be very careful with what you upload
We advise against using images or PDF’s on your website that have not been scanned for viruses (which should happen automatically if you have up to date internet security). It is best that you use stock photography or better still your own photos.
Beware of Browser Extensions
You must not have any Browser extensions active when making changes to your website from within the admin area as they can harbor potential malware / viruses etc.
