Microsoft just released a free ebook to help teens keep themselves and their stuff safer online. In partnership with security expert and author, Linda McCarthy, this free downloadable version of her new book, "Own Your Space - Keep Yourself and Your Stuff Safe Online" is written for computer and Internet savvy "tweens" and teens and their parents or educators.

Here are a few of the topics covered in the book:

  • Cyberbullying
  • Hackers and crackers
  • Social networking
  • Phishing
  • Spam


When asked why she decided to partner with Microsoft to post her book online for free, author and OwnYourSpace founder says, “It is increasingly more important that schools and families have access to free security information to protect themselves on the Internet.”

To download the entire book, or individual chapters, go to “Own Your SpaceKeep Yourself and Your Stuff Safe Online" Digital Book for Teens.
