Be a safe-sally and give these quick tips a read:


1. Password Tips 101


  • Ensure you have a passcode on your phone at all times

  • Do not use personal information for a password, like a birthday or pet's name.

  • The more characters it has (the longer it is), the better and stronger the password.

  • Use a password manager like Dashlane or 1Password to generate robust passwords for you.

  • Use a different password for all your different accounts.


2. Don't be an oversharer


  • Many of us love posting selfies with our friends, colleagues or pets or even checking-in at places on Facebook. Hackers can use this to find out your personal information and gain access to your accounts.

  • Make sure your social media accounts are all set to private, that only your friends can see your personal information. Review these privacy settings regularly.

  • Keep very personal information offline.


3. Ever been attacked by a phish?


  • Phishing attacks are the practice of sending fraudulent communications that appear to come from a reputable source. It is usually done through email and the goal is to steal sensitive data like credit card and login information or to install malware on the victim's machine.

  • Don’t click on links you cannot trust, and don’t give out personal information without being sure who’s on the other side of the screen.
