We know that we talk about Internet security a lot. However, protecting your data and privacy online is essential
to enjoying the Internet and keeping yourself safe. In our commitment to keep the Internet as fun and protected
as possible, we use a variety of tools and tactics that you may not be aware of. Here is a list of the ways that
Great Plains Communications works to keep you safe:
Email Guardian: If you are a Great Plains Communications webmail user, then you are already
protected by one of the best spam filters in use today. Email guardian quarantines suspect email
so that those with viruses don’t have a chance to infect your computer. This quarantine also lets
you see the email before it is removed from your inbox. That reduces the chance that an email
which only looked dangerous doesn’t get tossed out before you get to read it.
Password Genie: Even if you have a great memory, remembering the username and password combination
for every site that you visit on the Internet is very hard. Many browsers will auto-remember your passwords, but they don’t check to see if it’s you or someone who just wants access to
your accounts. Password genie only requires you to know one username and password combination.
Once you sign in, it supplies websites with your access information. Since you have to sign-in, no one
else can get to your accounts. It’s secure and easy!
SecureIT: For only $4-$6 a month, you can get total piece of mind about your computer’s safety. SecureIT
provides anti-virus and anti-spyware protection as well as firewall protection. It will stop you from
accidentally visiting sites that download malware to your computer and parents can even block certain sites
from kids’ computers. Plus you get 24/7 support in case you ever have a question.
Posts on the blog: Whenever we get a scam alert, we post about it here. We post tips and tricks about how
to protect your online safety. It’s a must read!
In addition to these services, Great Plains Communications is constantly keeping tabs on new
scam alerts and we do our best to make sure our customers are aware of potential issues. We
keep consumer data completely secured, so you can be assured that everything you let us
know is completely safe!
