In these internet days, we really do put our information out there in a very accessible way, whether that’s credit scores, credit card numbers, addresses, or all the above. That means when an institution that we trust is hacked, we make ourselves very open to that. Here are some ways you can protect yourself from cyber hackers.
- Change your usernames and passwords often, and never reuse the same ones for multiple accounts.
- Review your bank statements, credit card statements, and credit reports for unfamiliar charges.
- Sign up for notifications so you know when something is amiss.
