How to stay safe online

There are four basic safety and security points to keep in mind:

  1. Never include your personal contact information in your posts and use a made up name for your Username. .
  2. Be aware that using a public internet café puts you at higher risk for surveillance and having your accounts infected with spyware that can record your key strokes and passwords. Always bring your own laptop if possible, and never leave it unattended.
  3. Create strong passwords and change them often.A strong password is hard to guess, but easy for you to remember without writing it down, is at least 8 characters, is a mixture of UPPERCASE and lowercase letters, numbers, and includes at least one special character, such as !@#?%
  4. Always log out before leaving Worldpulse.com.

Read through the attached Safety and Security Toolkit to help you become aware of the risks of engaging online and ways to protect yourself.

 

How to change your password

If you want to change your password, select "My Account" from the “My Pulse” drop-down tab. Type your new password where it says “Change Password.” Then retype your new password where it says “Confirm Password”. You will also be asked to type in your old password. Do so, then click “Save” to save your changes.

 

What to do if you have forgotten your password or username

  • If you have forgotten your password, click on “Log in”. This will take you to the User Account page where you will find a "Request New Password" tab. Click on the tab and enter your username or the email address associated with your World Pulse account. Then select “E-mail New Password.” We will send a new password to your personal email account that will direct you to your World Pulse account.
  • If you have forgotten your username you can use your email address to log onto the website instead. Your username will then appear on your profile page under your picture in the upper right side of the page.
