If you use your computer or phone to do anything important or anything you enjoy, you need to keep your technology safe! Here are a few quick tips that can help you be safe:
1. Choose strong passwords. Even if that means you will have to write them down or use a Password Manager Software, using strong, unique passwords can slow down cyber criminals.
2. Be careful what you click. Just like candy from strangers, advertisements and emails can be tempting – but they might just be trying to get you to download malware to steal your information.
3. Be smart as you shop. Did your mother ever tell you to stay away from an event, because it would just get you into trouble? Some websites try to look like respected retailers but won’t protect your information. Make sure you know who you are ordering from.
4. Stay up to date. Those pesky antivirus updates are worth the time.
Stay safe out there!
