How you can protect yourself:
- Keep your internet browser, antivirus software, and hardware/software firewalls updated. Using the newest versions best protects your data from unauthorized sources.
- Never share your password with others. Your password is private information; keep it confidential.
- Do not loan your laptop or desktop computer to anyone. 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.
