The Internet is great for communicating, research, and playing games, but it seems to have acquired a bit of a bad track record for safety and security. Daily reports of viruses doing the rounds and seemingly endless amounts of spam in your mailbox are regular occurrences.
However Sorted can help - this is a new website produced by Childnet International
, designed by young people for young people. It aims to give you advice and information on computer security issues in a practical and simple way to help you sort out the hassles. Hopefully it can make your online experience just that little bit easier and more enjoyable.

~~ Spyware and Adware
~~ Trojans and Viruses
~~ Spam and Phishing
~~ Identity Theft
~~ Pop Ups and Cookies
~~ File Sharing
as well as a showcase of award winning web sites.
