After months cooped up inside, we’re all ready for vacation! Sadly, cybercriminals are ready too.
Here are some tips to help keep your accounts safe!
- Update your apps and ensure that each has a unique password rather than using credentials from a social site to sign in.
- Bluetooth and public wifi give hackers a path to your data, so use wired accessories in public areas and spin up a hotspot from your phone, ideally protected by a VPN. Don’t forget to disable your Auto Join Wifi Networks setting!
- Never leave work devices unattended, even if they are out of sight. Devices can be reached and stolen!
- Finally, remember to review emails for security risks before clicking links or downloading files. You want a vacation, not a phishing expedition!
