4 Tips to Help Protect Yourself Online

Image of a computer screen scrolling through a webpage. Headline says "Staying Secure." Text reads: As we become increasingly dependent on technology, protecting yourself online grows even more important. You may know you should change your password regularly and not share your Social Security number with someone you don't know, but these four advanced tips are also worth considering. 1: Don't overshare too many private details on social media; check your privacy settings regularly to limit access to your life's details. 2: Set up a virtual wallet for online purchases to avoid entering your credit card information regularly. 3: Don't trust public Wi-Fi networks. Use a VPN when on them to help encrypt your information. 4: Be vigilant on email. Make sure you can confirm the sender's email address and not just their name; if you are not sure of your sender, do not click links. Source: Business Insider and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.
