Below are a few hand tips from our weekly phishing blog.
Tip 7 – Avoid public Wi-Fi Networks
Try not logging onto online banking or secure sites while using a public Wi-Fi network. Such as coffee shops etc. Public networks are great for convenience, but are not always secure and are a hotspot for hackers. It’s best to use a mobile network.
Tip 8 – Protect your accounts by using multi-factor authentication
Many apps allow dual factor authentication. Such as Google and banking sites. Its best to enable these options if they are available as it makes its much hard for hackers to gain access to your account as you will need to validate your login with a secondary channel. Such as finger print or OTP.
