Title: safeguard your online identity and reputation

How to Keep Your Personal
Information Secure
  • Here are some things to consider to safeguard
    your online identity and reputation

Here are some tips to prevent it effectively
  • Set privacy settings in your browser Spot
    "phishy" websites and emailsInstall anti-virus
    software and update it regularly Scanning,
    detecting removing threats Sealed with
    threats Clean the digital junk out of your
    computer Set parental and other controls Lost
    Wallet Assistance Install a personal
    firewallCreate strong passwords

1 Exclude important personal information from
your social media profiles
  • Details like your phone number, address,
    childrens age or school can all present ways for
    hackers to glean more knowledge.

2. Check your social media privacy settings
  • Change all Facebook settings to Friends Only
    for all posts for a more secure profile. Facebook
    often makes changes to these settings and, when
    it does so, can even reset your secure settings.

3.Protect your online passwords and strengthen
them too
  • Many of us use passwords we won't easily forget,
    like 1234, our birth dates, or our home towns.
    But the rule is, if they're easy to remember,
    they're easy to crack, too.

4. Enable Cookies on Your Web Browser When
  • cookies are details websites store on your
    computer, including information about what sites
    you visit and what you do there. Most of them
    keep the details to themselves, but this is also
    a way dishonest people get your information.

5. Check your phones privacy settings
  • Turning your GPS location settings to off can
    also keep your familys whereabouts more private.
    Screen lock and apps lock you can use.

6. Watch out for 'phishing' emails
  • Spam email is getting more and more
    sophisticated. Never respond to any emails with
    account info or passwords. Banks will never ever
    ask for your information in this way. If in
    doubt, call the bank directly to check or, better
    still, delete the email.

7. Keep your communications networks secure
  • Password protect your Wi-Fi so hackers in the
    local area can't use your connection to carry out
    malicious activity.

8. Check for the https//
  • Before entering payment details into any website,
    check the web address has an 's' which stands
    for secure after the http. If it doesn't, don't
    use it.

9. Always use a firewall
  • Most computers come with them pre-installed, but
    there are also free and professional versions
    available. They can greatly deter hackers.

10. Monitor post you get through your door, as
well as online
  • Be alert to anything suspicious in the mail, like
    pre-approved credit cards you've not applied for
    and other financial offers.
