1. Examine Emails Closely:

Do not click a link or download an attachment from an unknown source. Hackers can fake an email address that may appear to be official. Check the email address for odd spelling such as "" or ""  


2. Socialize Carefully:      

Keep your information private. Be sure to never share sensitive information via phone, email, or social media. Any time you add personal information to your online profile, there is the potential risk of a scammer taking advantage of that information. Though providing small personal details may seem innocent, it may only take a few details--your full name and full date of birth, for instance-- to open the door to your online accounts.  


3. Log Off & Sign Out: 

When walking away from your device, be sure to always secure it by logging out. This simple tip can easily prevent the likelihood of unauthorized users logging into your device and accessing your sensitive information. 


4. Strong Authentication:      

A strong password provides essential protection from financial fraud and identity theft. One of the most common ways that hackers gain access to your information is by guessing your passwords! In addition, enabling two-factor authentication on your device will also decrease the risk of unauthorized access. 


5. Anti-Virus Software:      

Although you should always think before you click, keeping an anti-virus software up to date is just as important as installing them on your device.
