Tip

Stay Safe Online


The safe online behavior advice includes:
• Assess your social network “friends” to ensure you’re connected with only people you know and trust.
• Consider creating separate lists or profiles for professional and personal networking.
• Take the time to practice safe online behavior — be sure to end every online session by logging off your personal accounts when you’re done using them.
• Don’t access personal documents or online bank accounts on public computers.
• Only shop with reputable online companies and be sure to verify web sites for their authenticity before submitting credit card numbers or other personally identifiable information.
• Frequently change your passwords and ensure they’re hard to guess by including a series of numbers, letters and symbols.
• Every year complete a full analysis of your online persona. Use a search engine to gather and review all content associated with your identity.
• Check your financial health annually by obtaining a copy of your credit report to look for false or fraudulent activity.
