Tips For Keeping Your Personal Financial Information Safer
Follow these simple tips to help protect your banking details.
Changing just a few of your habits can make the difference in keeping your personal information more secure. Follow these simple tips to help protect your banking details.
First, make sure you properly dispose of any documents that may contain personal knowledge - like your banking information and address. Shredding, burning or pulping papers you no longer need is best. If sensitive information is stored on your laptop or computer, make sure you're using encryption software and your passwords are strong and remain private.
Finally, be wary about public Wi-Fi. Try to avoid logging into your banking app or accessing personal information from your laptop or smartphone on a public wireless network. While it may be convenient to use the free Wi-Fi in the library, restaurant or airport, make sure it's a secured wireless network before connecting.
