When creating online accounts, avoid using the same password more than once. Create passwords with eight characters or more and be sure each one uses a combination of numbers, letters, and symbols. You should also avoid opening attachments, clicking on links, or responding to text or email messages from unknown senders or companies that ask for your personal information such as your full name, telephone number, address, social security number or credit card information.
Be very careful with what you do on public unsecured Wi-Fi network. If you’re on a mobile device, don’t assume that your apps are automatically secure or use a secured internet protocol. It’s best to save that Internet banking session for when you’re able to connect via cellular data, or on a secure network.
