Simple tips to stay safe online

The internet is all about connectivity. But how do you know the website you’re visiting is legitimate, secure and free of malicious software?

How to stay cyber safe online:

Only visit trustworthy websites and bookmark them. A secure website will start with https:// in front of the address. 

Use multifactor authentication wherever possible. If not available, use strong and unique passwords for all the applications and manage them in a password manager.

Change the default passwords on your router and connected devices. 

Be wary of public WiFi hotspots. Avoid using them for online banking, emailing or updating social media, as hackers may be able to access your information.

Download software only from trusted app stores and keep them up to date.
