On-line technology has produced enormous electronic  sources from websites. Whether the sources are credible or dubious depends on evaluation and assessment of the web sources. Not all electronic sources are relevant some are dubious. The question to ask, how can I recognize a credible website?

Use the following checklist to answer the question:

How old is the on-line source?

Is the source updated?

How many credible authors have cited and used the materials on the website?

Are the sources properly cited with footnote documentation such as links, references and bibliography?

This year, I was exposed to dubious websites. I had installed ant-virus software to prevent such sites.

I scanned my files and programs on my PC, I was alerted of the harmful sites that posed as threats to my PC.

I went further to research about the dubious website. I used free on-line sources like Google to check the credibility and validity of the electronic source. Then I  reset the security settings on my PC to block and filter sites and sources without approved web certificates.
