Keeping your information safe

Browsing securely

Your online presence generates lots of data that can be harvested and misused.

There are some simple ways to protect your information.

  • Limit the amount of personal details you disclose online.
  • Check your privacy settings on your social accounts.
  • Ensure you’re secure by checking the site is https.
  • Avoid logging into financial accounts when using public wireless networks.
  • Always use secure payments — eg: PayPal, Apple Pay, credit card. Never send your bank or credit card details via email.
  • Create a strong password. Think of a passphrase instead by using more than 12 characters comprising 4 words.
  • Always lock your devices by using a combination of pin numbers, passphrases, fingerprint scans or facial recognition software.

Remember, it’s quick to click but safer to open a browser and go directly to the actual website.
