Stay Secure While Online
As we become increasingly dependent on technology, it becomes even more important to protect yourself online. You may know you should change your password regularly and not share your Social Security number with someone you don’t know, but these four advanced tips are also worth considering.
- Don’t overshare private details on social media. Check your privacy settings regularly to limit access to your life’s details.
- Set up a virtual wallet for online purchases. These can help you avoid entering your credit card information regularly.
- Don’t trust public Wi-Fi networks. Use a VPN when on them to help encrypt your information.
- Be vigilant on email. Make sure you can see the sender’s email address and not just their name. If you are not sure about who sent the email, do not click links.
