Tips to Avoid Internet Identity Theft
Identity theft can be devastating and overwhelmingly stressful, especially when your credit is being damaged or your money has been stolen by a thief or hacker. Preventing identity theft while you are online can be done by both increasing security that you have in place for accounts and usernames as well as by understanding what type of websites should be used to shop and enter personal information as well.
Always choose strong passwords that are not relevant to your life, family, friends or even pets’ names. Instead, choose a password with mixed cases and numbers to keep hackers guessing. Avoid logging into bank accounts and personal accounts you have to your name when you are in a public location, as this information can easily be obtained by any hacker or may be lurking or trolling public spots to steal others’ information. Ensure you always know the website you are shopping on before entering your name, address and payment information as well.
