Stay Cyber-Safe When Online

Protecting your personal information starts with exercising caution. Here are a few tips:

Links and Attachments

Check before you click or download! Most browsers show you a preview of a link before you click it. Ensure it goes where you think it goes. Attachments can also contain malicious code.

If you don't trust the sender or know why you're sent a file, then it's best to exercise caution before you open or download files or visit unfamiliar websites.

This also applies to opening things like PDFs from Google search.


Strong, unique passwords help keep your accounts secure.

  • Include symbols, lowercase and capital letters and numbers.
  • Use a password manager and change your passwords regularly.
  • Use a unique password for every account and don't let apps/websites remember it.
  • Sign up for two-step or multi-factor authentication.
  • Before you enter a username and password, make sure you're on the right website.

Requests for Private Information

Be careful if you're asked for personal identifying information like your full name, social security number, address or financial information.

Make sure you know who is asking before you share it, even if you think you know them. It's better to be safe than sorry. Sometimes it can be as simple as making a call to double check.

Plus, check your financial statements and credit reports regularly.

Backup and Delete Information

If information is important to you, back it up! Plus, make sure to regularly delete or remove personal or identifying information if you're no longer using a service.

  • Save copies of critical files in the cloud or an encrypted USB.
  • Avoid saving payment information online.
  • Remove payment/personal information and close accounts on sites and services you no longer use.
