- Don't download anything from an unknown source. Only obtain apps or files from websites you know and trust.
- Use different passwords for various sites and accounts. If one site or account is hacked and you have different passwords, it won't affect other sites or accounts.
- Use strong passwords. A password is harder to break if it contains a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation.
- Use secure website connections. Anytime you use a website that uses personal information make sure the site is secure and uses encryption. You can tell by looking at the URL - it would begin with https rather than simply http.
- Watch what websites store. Never send your social security number by email and delete any emails that contain private or financial information.
- Don't store a master list of passwords on your computer. Anyone who successfully hacks into your computer will be able to locate passwords.
