Using Search Engines

Browsers are tools used to visit sites, and explore the web, Google browser is the most used browser today with more than half ofthe people who use the internet on Google, google browser includes a search engine which is what you would use to search something lets say you wanted to serach up how paper is made, you would open up a browser, then search up, "how paper is made" and a search engine will provide answers for the query that you searched for a search engine will bring up the best possible answers, sites, and images for your search. TCP and IP are also the things we need to explore trhe internet because without it we could even use the internet TCP stands for Transmission Control Protocol a communications standard that enables application programs and computing devices to exchange messages over a network. It is designed to send packets across the internet and ensure the successful delivery of data and messages over networks. The Internet Protocol (IP) is the method for sending data from one device to another across the internet. Every device has an IP address that uniquely identifies it and enables it to communicate with and exchange data with other devices connected to the internet.

Access To Information

With the Internet Becoming Larger And Larger Every Day, The Access To Confidential, and private data becomes easier to reach and find. Due to people saving everything on their digital devices, and the interenet. It makes it easier for hackers to check out this information and use it maliciously, for example lets say you saved something onto your online note book, or your files, if someone wanted to steal that information about your or a subject, they could just find out everything all with just the internet. Hackers and malicious uses aside if you had a question that you may not find in a library because the information that you are looking for is private and confidential, you can just go online and find the answer, which is a big privacy issue. a way that you can protect your privacy is to download a Virtual Private Network, Or A (VPN) which Discuises your IP and makes it harder for hackers to steal your private information, Thus making it safer for you to browse and use the internet without much privacy issues.
