Nowadays, almost everyone has a social media profile and shares far too much. The number one source of identity theft, financial fraud, scams and other attacks online is the over-sharing of our personal data.

 

 

We can help prevent the wrong people getting their hands on our personal data by restricting the privacy settings of our social media profiles.

To-Do List

1. Review privacy settings for all social media sites you (and your kids) have.

2. Disable smartphone geotagging on photos.

3. Review historic posts (photos, videos and comments) for sensitive info.

2. Anti-Virus Software

Another must-have is anti-virus software. Many people believe that some devices don't need anti-virus or that if they just don't click on suspicious emails and links they can't get viruses on their devices. Unfortunately, this isn't the case at all.

 

Things called 'Internet Worms' can just find your devices and burrow into them straight from the internet without any action on our part. 

 

And yes, Mac's need anti-virus, they're not immune!

To-Do List

1. Install a decent anti-virus software.

2. Learn how to spot a phishing email.

3. Password Manager

You may not even have heard of a password manager...but they are now absolutely essential! Why? They enable us to have a unique, long and complex password for each online account we have.

 

Having the same password for every online account is the number one no-no because once you get one account hacked (likely) you've lost all of them. Nightmare.

 

Using a password manager takes all the stress out of remembering and using passwords.

To-Do List

1. Use passphrases, not passwords.

2. Use a password manager (like 1Password or LastPass)
