Protecting yourself and your business online is important and there are a multitude of resources available to help you do so. Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of all the steps you can take to protect yourself online. For a comprehensive approach to internet security, it's recommended that you consult with IT professionals or conduct further research. Here are some best practices to ensure that you have a safe and secure experience using our products and achieving your goals:
- Use strong passwords: Aim for a minimum length of 15 characters and consider using a passphrase instead of a password. For example: "MyP@sswordIsUncr@ck@ble!"
- Keep login credentials private: Avoid sharing logins with others as it makes it difficult to track down potential fraud. If you need to add users to your account, you can find instructions here. Note: You'll need the appropriate permission levels to access this feature.
- Avoid password reuse: Make sure to use different passwords for different accounts, especially if multiple people use the same device. If you need to add more users to your account, click HERE for instructions on how to do that.
- Secure your Wi-Fi: Change the password that came with your router, as it's often easily accessible to anyone. If you're unsure how to change it, reach out to your internet service provider for assistance.
- Be cautious with attachments: Be wary of opening attachments from unknown senders, especially if the sender appears to be impersonating someone you know. If the email is unsolicited or from someone you haven't heard from in a long time, it's likely a phishing scam.
- Consider using a VPN: A virtual private network (VPN) can secure your internet connection and keep your data safe. VPNs are also available for mobile devices.
- Invest in internet security training: Regular training for you and your employees/colleagues can help prevent security breaches and keep everyone informed on the latest internet safety best practices.
