Top tips for keeping your identity safe online

In today’s digital age, it is more important than ever to take steps to protect your identity online. Here are some top tips for keeping your identity safe:

  1. Use strong, unique passwords: One of the most effective ways to protect your online accounts is to use strong, unique passwords that are difficult for hackers to guess. Avoid using easily guessable passwords such as “password” or “12345,” and instead opt for a combination of letters, numbers, and special characters.
  2. Enable two-factor authentication: Many online services now offer an additional layer of security called two-factor authentication, which requires you to enter a code sent to your phone or email in addition to your password when logging in. This makes it much more difficult for hackers to access your accounts, even if they manage to obtain your password.
  3. Use a virtual private network (VPN): A VPN encrypts your internet connection and hides your IP address, making it much harder for hackers to track your online activity or steal your personal information.
  4. Be cautious when sharing personal information: Be careful about sharing personal information online, as this can be used by hackers to access your accounts or steal your identity. Avoid posting information such as your birthdate, phone number, or address on social media or other public websites.
  5. Use anti-virus software: Installing anti-virus software on your computer can help protect against malware and other online threats that can compromise your personal information.
  6. Be aware of phishing scams: Hackers often use phishing scams to trick people into revealing their personal information or login credentials. Be on the lookout for suspicious emails or website links, and never enter your personal information on a site that you are not certain is legitimate.

By following these tips, you can help protect your identity and keep your personal information safe online.

If I could give James six stars I would. I needed some help on a tricky website over the Christmas break and he was helpful, friendly, supportive and responsive – he was happy to explain anything that I didn't understand well (in a non-geeky way). Beyond the knowledge and skills, his interpersonal skills and rapport is great.
