ठगी से बचें

त्योहारों का सीजन आ गया है इसमें खरीदारी के साथ-साथ धोखाधड़ी और ठगी भी बढ़ जाती है। इसी तरह ऑनलाइन शॉपिंग में भी इस तरह के अपराध बढ़ जाते हैं । मेरे साथ एक बार ऐसा ही हुआ। मुझे एक ब्रांडेड वॉकिंग शू लेना था । मैं जिस साइट पर अक्सर चीजें खरीदती हूं उस पर जाने के साथ-साथ दूसरी साइट पर भी जाकर देखने लगी ।बहुत अच्छे ब्रांडेड शू अपरिचित साइट पर अच्छे डिस्काउंट पर मिल रहे थे । जिस साइट पर ज्यादा डिस्काउंट मिल रहा था वहां मैंने जूता ऑर्डर कर दिया ।मुझे उस साइट की कोई जानकारी नहीं थी फिर भी लालच में फंसे गई हालांकि मैं ऑनलाइन पर काफी सावधान रहती हूं। मैंने वहीं पर ऑर्डर दे दिया और बैंक से पेमेंट कर दिया ।
बैंक से पेमेंट तो साथ ही निकल गया पर जूता आज तक नहीं आया।
इस तरह के पर्सनल ट्रांजेक्शन पर बैंक जिम्मेदार नहीं है। इसलिए मेरी आपको सलाह है कि ऑनलाइन शॉपिंग करने से पहले साइट की अच्छी तरह से जांच पड़ताल कर ले
या आप अक्सर जिस साइट पर शॉपिंग करते हैं वहीं से शॉपिंग करें।
धोखाधड़ी करने वाले मनोविज्ञान को अच्छी तरह से समझते हैं।

Parents need to know how are their children spending time when they are online!
Article from today's Times of India.
Children may realize that they are spending too much time on online games but might not know how to limit the time they spend on these activities.
As a parent, you are the only one who can help your child, have a conversation with your child, and decide how much time is okay for him/her to play online games. Then help them stick to the schedule!

Will you be my Valentine?
Story by Usha Gupta
I have a few online friends . One day while chatting my friend told me he /she is coming to Delhi on 14 th February and asked if you happen to be in Delhi please visit me at 11:00 am.
I readily agreed as I live in Delhi. On the given date I reached at his/her home excitedly with a peanut Chikki as a token gift.
A smart girl of 14 or15 years old opened the door and asked me to come in . As I went to the drawing room, I looked around and saw some anxious faces but could not guess the reason . At around 11 o'clock, the smart girl appeared again and called out,
"Dadi please come. Your valentine friends have come."
I almost fell from the chair . A very pleasant looking old lady
holding a walking stick greeted us and said, "My dear online friends, thank you very much for coming. "
She continued, "I was chatting with you for the last few years, always choosing topics of your liking. I am a retired teacher so I know what children want to talk about. I want to tell you the internet is not transparent, you may be deceived."
Pointing towards me she said I am sorry I cannot eat your peanut chikki which had almost melted in my hands. She said, "I have artificial dentures." " None of my online valentines could guess my age."
"Be careful and don't gauge any person's age by what they write."
We all said in unison," Dadi please be our Valentine."
Immensely pleased we all hugged Dadi.
On her part she said this my best Valentines Day. With a motherly love she said lunch is ready.
A memorable day for me!
We marked Safer Internet Day(9th Feb.) with a virtual workshop for students of Nehru Planetarium. The group had students from various schools of Delhi.
To our delight, the students were well-informed and brilliant! We hope they benefitted from the workshop and enjoyed the session just as much as we enjoyed conducting it.

Because of communication technology the world has shrunk.
Communication is fast and accurate. More or less all financial transactions are digital. So to safeguard ourselves against any information we put on internet we must have the knowledge of what precautions are necessary for our safety and for the safety of our money. A small mistake can put you in unforseen trouble.
There is one NGO on internet safety named as JAAGOTEENS which conducts virtual workshops regarding this.

Everyone who is using internet, children, housewives or Senior citizens can enlighten themselves how to be cautious about the use.
आन लाइन पर सोच समझ कर लिखे
by Usha Gupta
आजकल ऑनलाइन पर कुछ लिखना मुश्किल नहीं है । कई बार सामाजिक या राजनैतिक परिस्थिति के बारे में विचार व्यक्त करते हैं। कुछ बच्चे भी पढ़ते हैं और उनके ऊपर इसका प्रभाव भी पड़ता है । उन्हें लगता है कि जब परिस्थिति इतनी नाजुक है तो उस पर कोई एक्शन क्यों नहीं लेता । जो बच्चे अधिक सेंसिटिव होते हैं वह सोच सोच कर एंजाइटी के शिकार हो जाते हैं। बेहतर यही होगा कि ऑनलाइन पर जो कमेंट लिखे जाए और सोच समझकर लिखे जाए।
Nowadays we are conducting online workshops/webinars where we talk to students about Safe Internet Usage.

How to Take Control of Your Online Life
It’s another morning in your life. You wake up, and what is the first thing that you do? Most of us grab an electronic device and check for messages, like our friend’s photos, basically start our day with social media. As the day progresses, we surround ourselves with more devices, more apps and suddenly, our electronics are dictating our day.
We often lose ourselves in our devices and forget the world revolving around us. So let’s learn to make the shift between taking control and giving control. Start changing few small things, like, don’t start your day with a device; instead indulge in efficient communication and self-help. Read paper books instead of buying an e-book. Review the apps on your devices, do you really need them? Or are they just forcing you to look at your phone again and again?
In Marie Kondo’s words, “Does that spark joy?” Once you’ve reviewed your apps, it’s time to check permissions. Permission or access privileges are easily abused by apps, when we click on the ever favourite ‘Allow’ button. Recently, a popular app called Cam Scanner was found to contain malware and had microphone and gallery permissions as well. Often certain third party apps, find their way into our gallery, contacts and important information. This results in a data breach and we are often left to wonder, how did this happen?
In reality, our online life has taken over our real life and the thin line separating the two is disappearing. It is our lack of awareness and lack of care that ultimately leads to loss of our data and this is what companies take advantage of. With a little bit of effort, the control goes back to the humans from the bots.

On the occasion of friendship week I would like to share a wonderful poem written by Shri Maithili Sharan Gupt.
Friendship needs heart to heart vibrations . Not online chatting or a password.
तप्त हृदय को , सरस स्नेह से ,
जो सहला दे , *मित्र वही है।*
रूखे मन को , सराबोर कर,
जो नहला दे , *मित्र वही है।*
प्रिय वियोग ,संतप्त चित्त को ,
जो बहला दे , *मित्र वही है।*
अश्रु बूँद की , एक झलक से ,
जो दहला दे , *मित्र वही है।*
Friend is one who understands you, who stands by you, shares with you maybe far but near you.
Is it time to give up passwords?
By Aanavi Gupta
We live in a world where everything is interconnected through the World Wide Web and it is that ease of interconnectivity that attracts the common user to the internet. However, almost every service that we use is dependent on 8 characters- our password. But what is the course of action when suddenly our password gets stolen and the internet which was once a boon stands as an evil foreman. According to leading newspaper reports, since 2016 almost 5 billion passwords have been stolen. These stolen passwords can easily be used to access the various services and turn into data breaches.
An optimal solution was soon found in the form of ‘Biometrics’. The use of biometrics was not a new practice, but when combined with the fast moving technology of the 21st century, biometrics became the ultimate security. Fingerprints, Iris recognition all came together to make the unbreakable system. However, many business and shops in India refuse to switch to biometrics citing that it will be difficult to manage and use. Some also cite cost cutting as one of the reasons of not using biometrics. These shops and business are still in the practice of using passwords for securing everything. Many of these businesses also make the use of online transaction, thus increasing the risk of data breach, theft and other attacks. Often, attackers make use of this vulnerability and exploit the system.
In conclusion, India is one of the world’s fastest growing economies and with that comes the responsibility of cybersecurity as well. Is Rs.3000 (cost of a biometric device in India) really a big price to pay to prevent the theft and loss of data of over a million people? Making the shift to secure technology is the need of the hour, but whether it can be implemented in a nation like ours, only time will tell.
Yesterday we were at A J K mass Communication Research centre, Jamia and addressed Semester III students. It was a pleasure to talk to them.
Here are a few things that I felt appeared new to them.
1. Use of a virtual keyboard is a safer option.
2. Free wi-fi hotspots could be hacked and hence not safe to access email, social media sites or shop.
3. Better to use a credit card rather than a debit card.
I am taking online courses to learn about Artificial Intelligence and its applications. Looks that one case use AI to improve digital safety, detect fraudulent posts, fake messages and warn people against fake profiles. If there is anyone who can tell us more about this we will be glad to learn from you.
