So, why use technology? In today’s world, it is almost inevitable. There are many benefits to utilizing technology:

Since we all use it, it’s important to know how to keep yourself, and your personal information, safe! 

  • Use Strong Passwords – combine numbers, symbols, upper and lower case. 
  • Guard Personal Information – think before giving out your personal information online. 
  • Be Wary – If it seems too good to be true, it usually is.
  • Install Reputable Security Software – only purchase recognized security software.
  • Be Careful what you Post – avoid sharing anything too personal. 
  • Avoid Phishing Scam – a common tactic is sending emails meant to look like reputable sites – Stay Alert! 
  • Think Before You Open! Don’t open anything that seems suspicious or come from someone you don’t know.
  • Backup Photos and Documents – backup items so you don’t accidentally lose them forever.
