Abstract:
The use of the Internet and other computing technologies in the Philippine Universities has significantly increased in the last decade. While its purpose and aim is to promote communications and research in the academic field, it has become an integral part of a College student's life. Students use the Internet for locating information, and acquiring general knowledge (De Leon, J. A. V., & Tarrayo, V. N., 2014). The Internet today is not only an information superhighway serving teachers and students, but also a new interpersonal arena in which young people can enhance their opportunities and social experiences (Chou, C., & Peng, H., 2011). In many ways, the Internet can be used to access email, complete coursework, purchase books and negotiate online transactions that require the need for personal information. However, this kind of dependency on the Internet has its pitfalls and drawbacks. Using the Internet habitually, exposes students to different risks such as exposure to inappropriate or potentially dangerous information, disclosure of important and private information, onlinepurchase scams, and enticement by cyber-predators who want to meet them in person for detrimental purposes (Aftab, 2000). Hence, students who use the Internet are more vulnerable to different types of computer security threats such as pornography, hacking, copyright infringement, piracy, and abuse (Poftak, A., 2002).
