TIPS HOW TO BE SAFE ONLINE

1. Don’t open mail from strangers: If you get a phishing email with malware attached, you don’t have to download the attachment for it to do damage to your home network. That’s because drive – by downloads can install malware on your hard drive without you even agreeing to download them. 2. Make sure your devices are up to date: If you don’t have your security software, web browsers, and devices se t to update automatically, turn on those automatic updates now. Updates often include critical fixer for any security holes that may have been detected in your programs or devices.

3. Use strong passwords: There are several ways to protect yourself from identity theft online, and using strong passwords is one of them. Unfortunately, even now people still use passwords like “12345678” or “password ”. Don’t use those, and also don’t use your dog’s name or your kids birthday. 4. Use two – factor authentication: Two – factor authentication requires you to verify your identity after you’ve logged in using your username and password. In some cases, you’ll have to answer a security question. Whenever two – factor authentication is available, opt in. It may take you a couple of extra seconds to log in to your accounts, but it can make it less likely that other people will be able to log into your accounts, too.

5. Don’t click on strange – looking links: Viruses and other form of malware often spread because you click on a link from someone you know. If you receive a link that looks strange (for instance, it may have typos in it) from a trusted friend of family member, contact them to ask if the link you’ve received was sent on purpose. You might have to wait a bit to watch that funny viral video, but better safe than sorry. 6. Avoid using unsecured public Wi-Fi: If possible, try to avoid accessing unsecured public Wi-Fi on your devices. Using it can make you vulnerable to predatory practices. And if you must use it, avoid entering compromising information, like your social security number or financial information, on any websites. Better yet, use a VPN, or virtual private network, to do your browsing when you’re not at home. This will encrypt the data you send and receive, making it much harder to intercept.

7. Back up your data regularly: If you become a victim of malware, such as ransom ware, you might not be able to get your data back. That is, useless you’ve backed up your data. 8. Be smart with financial information: Be mindful of where you enter information like your credit card number online. Before you purchase anything on a website, ensure that the website’s URL starts with “http://”. The “s” at the end is critical, because it indicates that your connection is encrypted. Don’t purchase anything from a websites you buy from, even if you shop with them frequently. Storing your information on their site could make it easier for hacker to access in the event that company’s websites or network suffer a data breach.

9. Educate your Family: You can be taking all the right precautions on your home security network, but if your family and other people using your network aren’t doing their part to keep everything secure, your efforts might not be enough . 10. Avoid Sharing personal information: It’s easy to get comfortable with sharing a little too much personal information online. But you may be surprised at how much damage cybercriminals can do with just a little bit of information. To keep it safe, never share identifying details, like your full name, address, or financial information with stranger you meet online. You should also be careful about the usernames you create for websites – there’s no need for them to include your real name. And be sparing with the amount of information you share in online survey or forms. Most of the time, little to no personal information is genuinely needed to complete them.
