Examine the current electronic media sources to include the components that make the World Wide Web operate with webmail. 5.1 Customize browser security and cookie settings. 5.2 Develop web page materials using HTML. Reading Assignment Chapter 7: The Web and E-mail, pp. 359-414 Unit Lesson Unit V examines current electronic media sources, including the components that make the World Wide Web operate with webmail. E-mail is electronic mail that most of us use today at our jobs and in our daily life. In essence, e-mail has replaced the written letters of the past. This unit lesson focuses solely on the web and e- mail security, which can be a huge issue. All e-mail accounts receive spam, or unwanted ads; however, e- mail accounts can be set up to include a spam folder where the majority of the spam will go automatically. It is advisable to check your spam folder to make sure legitimate e-mails do not end up in this folder because that does happen. One thing that is important to do when using Wi-Fi in public spaces is to log out of your e-mail accounts and to close the browser completely. When using a public wireless network, someone may be able to get into your account if you do not log out of the e-mail account and close the browser as well. Another rule of thumb is to delete your browser cache, passwords, and history on a regular basis. This is most important after using public Wi-Fi access. Most browsers automatically keep track of all the web pages a person visits as well as the passwords and personal information. If a hacker gets your password and personal information, you may become a victim of identity theft. A hacker could also clean out your bank account.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
