In case you didn’t know, June is National Internet Safety Month. With nearly 4 billion people on social media worldwide, plus the risks of using online brokerage and bank accounts, the need for digital security has never been higher.

While tech is becoming more secure in response to threats, there are some habits you can adopt to safeguard your digital life.

  • Stop - First, take a moment to evaluate your current security measures. Do you use two-factor authorization (2FA) whenever possible? What about a password manager? Do your research and put these measures in place.
  • Think - Before clicking a link or posting on social media, consider the information you may be accessing or sharing. A hacker can use minor details to target you or your loved ones.
  • Connect - Don’t go on auto-pilot: monitor your online accounts and devices. Make sure to change your passwords periodically, especially if you get an alert about unusual account activity.

By staying alert to these details, you can browse the web with a little more peace of mind.
