Everytime you go on the Internet, you open yourself to experiences and new people. Not all are good. Here are three ways to keep your family and your finances safe.
Policing The Internet
If you’ve got a family, adjust the rules as needed for Internet control. Once you set ground rules, follow through. When you think of letting your children on the Internet, think of it as letting them out alone in the world. No one will look out for your children like you will. If you do come across something inappropriate, don’t wait for someone else to report it.
Use A Two-Factor Authorization (2FA)
Another term for this is two-step verification. With two factor authorizations, you put in a regular password, plus an additional login code that changes every time. The system isn’t perfect but is a lot better than using a single password (that often doesn’t change often.)
Always Log Out
Protect your account by logging out after each use. It’s well worth the seconds it will take to log back in. When you log out, social networks are stopped from tracking you around the web.
