Digital Security at Home: How to protect your information online

Technology has changed the way we live and work, but it has also brought new security risks. In this blog, I will offer you tips to protect your online information and ensure the digital security of your home.

Use strong passwords

Use unique and complex passwords for your online accounts. Avoid using personal information such as birth dates or pet names as passwords, as they are easy to guess. Instead, use a combination of letters, numbers and symbols.

Update your devices and software

Software updates often include security patches that fix vulnerabilities. Be sure to keep your devices and software up to date to protect your online information.

Learn how to spot phishing emails

Phishing emails are a common tactic used by cybercriminals to obtain personal information. Learn how to spot phishing emails and don’t click on links or download attachments from suspicious emails.

Use a virtual private network (VPN)

A VPN is a tool that protects your online privacy by encrypting your Internet connection. Use a VPN when surfing the Internet, especially on public networks such as coffee shops or airports.

Limit the information you share online

Do not share personal information online, such as your address or phone number. Also, be sure to check the privacy policies of the applications and websites you use to find out how your information is used.
