ESET advice: How to protect your data

SECURE PAYMENT
Are you a hopeless shopaholic? Protect your payments

Attackers will try different tricks, including fake bank apps

  • Always make sure the app you use is the official version
  • Read the business terms
  • Check what the Commerce Commission recommends - bit.ly/whenbuyingonline
  • Use a secure browser to make online payments

SECURE CONNECTION
Tempted to click before you lose your signal? Don’t lose your privacy as well

Being online 24/7 is great if you know how to protect your privacy

  • Be cautious with public Wi-Fi and use your mobile data plan where possible
  • Adjust your browsing based on how trustworthy a specific network is
  • Use security software on your smartphone
  • Download a security app with automatic updates

PRIVACY PROTECTION
Secretly watching “Sex and the City” for the 10th time? Protect your privacy

Nobody needs to know what you do or download online

  • Never download streaming portal extensions
  • Never click on suspicious adverts
  • Install a quality antivirus app. Yes, even on your TV
  • Use a program that can detect who else is connected to your router

STRONG PASSWORDs
Multiple profiles make your online life interesting? Cool, just make sure you have secure passwords

Are you using 5 different profiles, all with the same password, “martin90”? This is how you create a strong password:

  • Use sentences rather than words, e.g. "Martinsinstarulez!"
  • Use a different password for each network
  • Enable two-factor authentication
  • Use a password manager

SMARTPHONE PROTECTION
Running to Micky D’s counts too, right?

Mobile apps can be treacherous. How do you make sure they don’t rat you out?

  • Only download apps from the official store
  • Check their permissions and read reviews
  • Keep all your apps updated
  • Use antivirus on your smartphone
