If you are on the Internet, you need to detect fake news and unsafe websites to protect yourself from phishing. We give you a few tips that you should implement in your environment.
An inexhaustible variety of information is available on the Internet. However, not all websites are safe. A reputable and, most importantly, secure site uses HTTPS, a secure communication protocol. Your browser shows a lock in the address bar, if the website is using HTTPS.
Every day, countless emails are sent to your mailboxes. Be vigilant, especially when an action is required, such as clicking links, downloading files, installing apps, changing settings or opening Word documents.
A good password manager is mandatory.
If you want to use the Internet, you can’t get around using passwords. You need these for social media, banking, tax office and many other accounts. For each of those, a secure password (letters, numbers, special characters combination) must be used.
A password manager helps because:
- it will suggest you secure passwords.
- you only need to remember a single master password.
- all other passwords are stored securely in the digital vault.
- you can access your passwords at any time and easily copy them (no keyboard input required).
