Microsoft: The Real World is more dangerous than the Online World

Is the Online World More Dangerous Than the Real World? Microsoft has addressed four common online myths about identify theft, child exploitation, conducting transactions online, and reputation to show that the online world is not more dangerous that the offline world.

Questions answered:

  • Does Identity theft usually happen on the Internet?
  • Are Child predators moving to the Internet to exploit children by pretending they are children?
  • Do you still have control over your reputation on the Internet?
  • Is making purchases on the Internet more risky?

Microsoft clears a few doubts about these and tries to separate fact from fiction.
