Keep Your Personal Information Safe Online

Cyber crimes come in a variety of forms, including identity theft, fraud, and viruses. Reduce your chances of becoming a victim by taking these important steps online:

  • Set strong passwords, change them regularly, and don’t share them with others.
  • Keep your operating system, browser, and other critical software optimized by installing updates.
  • Use privacy settings and limit the amount of personal information you post online.
  •  Be cautious about offers. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

 Get additional information about protecting yourself online and reporting incidents from the Department of Homeland Security.
