Be mindful of what you download. Never open an email, click a link or open an attached file within an email from someone you don’t know or aren’t expecting, and always be cautious of all forwarded attachments. Often, spam emails are another tactic someone could use to obtain your information.
Always turn off your computer when you’re not using it. Leaving your computer on or in sleep mode leave them open to potentially attacks. Turning your device off every time goes a long way in keeping you safe from hackers.
