Be Cyber Smart!
Our world relies on the internet now. Whatever we do is being tracked daily by companies, cookies, and third parties. The world has evolved so much that we are constantly using the net for checking the news, paying your bills, connecting with people across the world, viewing account summaries, and even ordering take-out!
With freedom to view what the world has to offer right on the palms of our hands, comes a danger of being pried on.
Checklist of Things to Do to Steer Clear of Cyber Creepers:
Clear out all cookies on your browsers and apps at least once a month to ensure your personal information is safe
Sharing your User ID or password-- Keyword: Don't!
Never allow anyone to have remote access to your devices (i.e. phones, laptops, computers, tablets, etc.)
Verify the identity of those who send emails or texts that seem unfamiliar. With the number of spam/phishing/frauds, double-checking can only hurt the ones trying to come after your information!
