Protect Yourself Online

What can I do?

  • Do not reply to emails requesting your username and password
  • Do not click on links in emails, copy and paste the website name into your browser instead
  • Do not open or forward suspicious looking emails
  • Do not respond to emails or Instant Messages from people you do not know
  • Do not send confidential information through Instant Messages or in emails unless you can encrypt them
  • Do not share your password or credentials with others for any reason
  • Run all software as a non-privileged user (one without administrative privileges) to diminish the effects of a successful attack
