This page provides tips on how to reduce the chance of others getting hold of personal information through your tablet, smart phone or computer:
- only allow someone to remotely access your computer if they are from a trusted source, like your internet service provider, and only if you called them for help.
- create passwords which are long and use lower and upper case letters as well as numbers and symbols. Change passwords regularly and don’t share them.
- use antivirus software and keep it up to date.
- understand what software you are installing on your computer or phone and make sure you are using a secure site. A secure site will have a web address beginning with https not http – the ‘s’ stands for secure.
- make sure your firewall is switched on.
- don’t open suspicious or unknown emails, email attachments, texts or pop up messages. Emails with unusually worded subject headings are often not genuine.
- no online company will contact you to ask for your log-in details, such as your password or user ID, unless they are scammers. You should only need to provide this information when you are logging onto a service such as online banking.
- before entering payment card details on a website, make sure the link is secure.
If you have opened a scam email:
- don’t reply to it.
- don’t click on any links in the email or open any attachments.
- if you have already clicked on a link and opened a website, don’t give any personal information out.
