Useful Tips
  1. Always check that you are at an https:// site (secure site identified by the “s” after http) before entering Personally Identifiable Information (PII) or financial information. PII refers to information that can be used to uniquely identify, contact, or locate a single person or can be used with other sources to uniquely identify a single individual.
  2. Identity theft and cybercrime.
  3. Getting your money back after a tech support scam.
  4. FTC Combats Tech Support Scams.
  5. If you see a pop-up requesting to click or call for tech support services,
    • Don’t give access to your computer to anyone who contacts you.
    • Never give your credit card or financial information – or your passwords – to anyone who calls asking for them.
    • Hang up on anyone who pressures you to pay for a computer security product or service. If you have concerns about your computer’s security, call a reputable computer security company using a number you know is really theirs.  If you need to check a company out, search its name online with words like “review,” “complaint,” or “scam.”
  6. Always read a web site's privacy policy before giving any personal information. Also make sure that a web site offers a secure connection before giving credit-card information.
  7. Do NOT put photos of yourself or give out your real full name, date of birth, social security number, bank account numbers, credit card number, addresses, phone numbers, schools, or other personal information online for the public view
  8. If you receive a warning that a certificate is not signed or is invalid, close the window, and do not continue to the website.
  9. Be careful and limit to use hotel or other public computers to check your emails, make financial transactions or login to your company's network. There is an extremely high probability that they contain keystroke loggers or other malware and can record the sites you visit, your login ID and passwords.
  10. Be careful and limit to use public wireless access points to connect to your company's network. Because they are public, they are not encrypted or secure. When you use public wireless access points, others can access your computer to install malware or simply record everything you send over the wireless connection.
  11. Clear temporary Internet files in your computer regularly.
  12. Make sure your browser is set to prompt you before installation of cookies on your computer and then clear cookies regularly.
  13. Save downloads or e-mail attachments and scan them before opening them.
  14. Verify that the protection program installed in your computer covers anti-adware, anti-spyware and enabled blocked pop-up programs.
  15. Use anti-malware programs that provide website warnings and safety before surfing. Avoid web surfing to non-green or questionable sites.
  16. Be aware that spyware can masquerade as antispyware software. For example, Lavasoft’s Ad-Aware is a valid anti-spyware tool, but A-daware and Ada-ware are reportedly imposters.
  17. If downloading a program, type in the URL instead of clicking on it. You can check URLs by right-clicking to see if the properties show the link correctly.
  18. Nothing is free on the Internet.
