    Would love some advice regarding security on here. I recently set up Skype so I can use it. I now getting urgent messages from them regarding my security network is down. Can someone please advise me on what I need to do. Do I need to Purchase norton or one of those. Or is there a safe secure security on here already.

    How are you receiving these security warnings?

    Be wary of any security popups you encounter when browsing websites. These are usually scams designed to get you to install exactly the kinds of software they are warning you about.

    No real danger seeing them on the iPad, but if you see them on the computer be careful of what you click. Best just to close the page/browse without clicking anything at all. Never, never, never say yes to any prompts about installing software or giving permissions. The proper name for this attack, btw, is scare ware. They scare you into installing it.
