Each time we access the internet, or connect to the Care Plus network when working from home, we are opening up Care Plus to vulnerabilities. By downloading executable files or clicking on hyperlinks & Ads, you may be unsuspectingly introducing a virus into the Care Plus network. Think before you click.
