Is there important information stored on your home computers?
It’s important to take extra security measures against hackers, especially if multiple people use your home computers or if you use the device to manage your finances.
Here are some tips:
- Build a firewall. Protect your computers against viruses and malware by using antivirus software and a firewall.
- Create strong passwords. Establish effective login credentials that include numbers, capital letters and symbols.
- Establish guidelines. If multiple people use your home networks, including your kids, make sure you review online internet safety habits with them.
