Keep financial details to yourself.

It’s essential that your financial information is protected on the internet. Financial institutions will never ask you to provide your PIN, card number, password, personal or financial information over phone, text, or email – these platforms are not secure or well-encrypted. If you are being rushed to hand over bank details or warned of a ‘potential breach’ or ‘account closure’ this is most likely a scam. You can call the number on the back of your credit or debit card to verify the request if you’re unsure – it pays to stay on the safe side!

Secure your details offline.

To protect your online details from cybercriminals you need to keep information safe in the real world too. Keep sensitive documents such as your birth certificate, social security number, passport, cheques, bank statements and credit cards hidden inside your home. Cybercriminals can use this information to wipe accounts, make purchases, or steal your identity. Shred up old credit cards or any documents with personal and financial data to stop hackers from finding it when looking through rubbish.

Protect your social media.

We share a lot about ourselves on social media so it’s important to be smart and secure. Tagging your location in photos, accepting friend requests from strangers, and clicking hyperlinks on unverified social media accounts are all social engineering tactics used by hackers. Set your social media settings to private so cybercriminals can’t stalk your social media, find out key details, and gain your trust for scamming purposes. Hackers don’t need to know your pet’s name or favourite sports team!

Be password smart.

Password-hacking software is programmed to quickly search for commonly used phrases, and adjacent letters and numbers. It’s essential to use long, unpredictable passwords that are at least 10 characters. Combine upper and lowercase letters, numbers, symbols, and punctuation so your password is hard to guess. Use different passwords for each account because hackers will try more than one website. Always use two-factor authentication if you can. Avoid using pet names, birthdates, addresses, or other personal information – these are too obvious!
