- Never share personal or payment information via email. Regular email is not secure and can be intercepted.
- Practice extreme caution when using public computers. You may be at risk when using public computers-such as those in hotels, libraries, or internet cafes. Spyware may have been installed and by entering private information you are at risk of having it stolen.
- Provide personal information on a web page only if it's secure and you have initiated the contact. Always check for the lock icon or check the site certificate.
- Keep your passwords secret. Change them regularly, using a mix of numbers and characters.
