How you can protect yourself

  • Ensure your computer is receiving monthly security patches and your antivirus software is updated regularly. Using the newest versions best protects against unauthorized access to your computer and data.
  • Never share your password with others. Your password is private information; keep it confidential.
  • Don't let other people onto your computer. Giving other users access to your computer can put you and your personal information at risk.
  • Be careful not to leave your computer unattended when you have applications with confidential data open.
  • For more information on ways to keep your information safe, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website (opens in new tab).  You’ll find tips for protecting yourself and warning signs of identity theft.
