  • Use strong passwords. Use a different unique password for each website. Try to use symbols and numbers to replace traditional letters. When using letters, use an assortment of upper and lower case.
  • Make sure the website asking for your information, is the right one. Don’t go to a website using an email or text message link. To verify if the website is secure, the URL should include 's' at the beginning (https).
  • Don't give out passwords or pin numbers through email, phone or text. If you have given out your password or pin number, change it immediately.
  • Review and monitor your antivirus software. Make sure it is updated as often as it needs to be, to provide up to date protection.
  • Always lock your computer or log off of it, when not in use.
