Do you ever worry about someone stealing your identity? Or someone “hacking” into your phone and emptying your bank account? Do you see news stories about someone taking advantage of a lonely person?
Is there anything you can do (or not do) to make these things far less likely? The answer is yes… there are things you are doing or not doing that affect your tech safety.
We may read the following list and say… I’d never do that! Or I always do that! If so, let’s use this list as a refresher. Please note these items are NOT listed in order of importance.
In summary, you are a major threat to your tech safety. What you do or don’t do can have a significant impact.
Be safe out there.
