How to keep your account safe
« on: January 26, 2018, 07:40:41 PM »

Lockdown your password

Good password security is one of the easiest methods to protect your account from hackers.

A strong password - 8 or more characters with upper-case characters, lower-case characters, numbers and symbols in a random order - is very hard for hackers to break.

Of course, you need to create a unique password for every account. That way, if a hacker gets one of your passwords in a data breach, they can't immediately get into your other accounts


Secure your connection

When logging into a sensitive account, the best place to do it is at home. I'm assuming here that you've followed my other security tips about securing your network and making sure your computer doesn't have a data-stealing virus.

If you have to use Wi-Fi, add extra security with a Virtual Private Network. This creates a secure, encrypted link with a third-party server and you access your sites through that link.

It's an extra level of protection that hackers shouldn't be able to crack. On a laptop, CyberGhost is a good option. For a tablet or smartphone, check out Hotspot Shield VPN or avast! SecureLine VPN.


Advoid phishing scams

EMAIL, That's exactly what they need to launch a phishing attack. A popular type of phishing attack is a fake email claiming to be from a real company that asks you to click on a link or download an attachment.

Thanks to data breaches, hackers know exactly what companies you use. You might get an email claiming to be from JPMorgan Chase telling you that your account has a problem and you need to click a link or download a file for more details.

Of course, the link will take you to a malicious site disguised as a Chase page, or the email attachment will contain a data-stealing virus. Either way, hackers can get your username and password, or other sensitive information.

Remember, no legitimate company will ask you to click a link or download an email attachment to update your account details
