If you’re reading this, you’re online. Nearly everyone is now, from kids with phones to grandmas looking at those kids on social media.
Unfortunately, if you’re online, you’re also vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Everything from email scams to ransomware attacks is possible if you aren’t careful.
Luckily, being careful is easier than ever. Planning ahead and making a few simple changes can have a huge impact on how likely you are to experience an attack.
To make sure you’re secure online, try the following:
- Beef Up Those Passwords — Yes, it’s annoying to change them. But change them regularly, make them longer, and use different types of symbols and punctuation.
- Build That Firewall — Use antivirus software on your devices. There are free options and paid options. Feeling techy? Use a VPN to be even safer.
- Check Yourself — Not sure if you’re secure? Check your info at http://haveibeenpwned.com/ to see if you have been part of a data breach.
Having your information out there can be scary. Luckily, a few basic changes can make a huge difference in you surfing the web confidently.
