Mobile Phone

  • Utilize a screen lock feature such as a PIN, Pattern or Fingerprint.
  • Keep your software and apps updated.
  • Install antivirus software.
  • Keep location settings enabled in case your phone is lost or stolen.

Passwords

  • Create strong passwords that are at least 10-12 characters long and include a combination of capital and lower case letters, digits, and special characters. Don't make them predictable and change them every 3-6 months.
  • Don't use the same password repeatedly.

Email

  • Don't open emails from senders you do not recognize.
  • Never email financial information or your Social Security Number unless it is through a secure email platform.

Other Tips

  • Don't stay signed into your accounts.  When you are finished, log-off.
  • Limit what you share on social networking sites and consider increasing your privacy settings.
  • Make sure your home wireless network is secure. Change the default name and password to something only you and your family know.
