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).
