Updating your software is one of the easiest ways to protect yourself online. These updates add new features, install bug fixes and fix security holes that could let cybercriminals in. Take the time to install software updates as soon as they become available. Better yet, set your system preferences to update automatically.
Public Wi-Fi isn’t always safe. Without the right protection, cybercriminals could see your information. So, it’s important to be careful about what you do online when you’re connected to public Wi-Fi. Always think before you connect.
Phishing are fake messages that try to trick you into giving out your personal or financial details. If you receive a suspicious message do not click on any links or open any attachments. Always think before you click.
