6 tips to protect yourself on Internet

So we want to share with you these 6 tricks that should save you months of judicial puzzles.
  1. Never show your passwords to others - It may seem trivial, but you will be surprised at how common this rule can be unapplied. Your password is your key and the one who holds it will not always ask for your opinion to invite yourself in your private life.
  2. Use one password only per service. - It can be seen that many people tend, for reasons of memory or simplicity, to use the same password for several services. Apart from the advantage that it entails, the risks are much more important because it simplifies the task to the robots and hackers of the net.
  3. Change your passwords about once a month. - Although we do not all do this, consider that this action, although effective, is the one that would reassure you most. And it takes only a few minutes. You will also need to choose longer passwords of between 8 and 16 characters.
  4. Do not "CLICK" on anything or any link. - Our rule is really simple: "if you do not know, do not click". Also take the time to check the spelling and even search for information in Google or by directly typing the url of the site in the browser (the site of a bank for example).
  5. Never give your mother's maiden name in response to the control questions. - Remember that this information is very often used by financial institutions and credit agency.
  6. If you are using a ' password management application ', make sure you do not keep it active or activate the 'remember me' option. - Know that your best protection remains "YOUR GOOD MEMORY"
