Simple tips to help protect your privacy online:

  • Never open emails from unknown or untrusted sources. They may contain harmful viruses, rendering your computer or mobile device susceptible to intrusions.
    Never provide personal information (social security number, bank account information, or where you bank for example) to a website or email claiming to be a financial institution. Chances are the website/email is a scam “phishing” for personal information.
  • When banking online, make sure to routinely monitor your accounts for signs of fraud.
  • To best ensure your personal information is safe, install virus protection software on your home computer and keep it updated. When storing backup copies of personal files and data at home, make sure they are password-protected. Before you dispose of your computer, make sure to remove all storage drives simply deleting your files is not advisable.
