Here Are 10 tips to help you stay safe on the internet

Realize that you are an attractive target to hackers.

Always be careful when clicking on attachments or links in email. If it’s unexpected or suspicious for any reason, don’t click on it.

Sensitive browsing, such as banking or shopping, should only be done on a device that belongs to you, on a network that you trust.

Back up your data regularly, and make sure your anti-virus software is always up to date.

Watch what you’re sharing on social networks. Criminals can befriend you and easily gain access to a shocking amount of information—where you go to school, where you work, when you’re on vacation—that could help them gain access to more valuable data.

Be sure to monitor your accounts for any suspicious activity. If you see something unfamiliar, it could be a sign that you’ve been compromised.

Never leave your devices unattended.

Make sure you password is not simple

If someone wants to hack your account they can see what you are interested in, and easily get onto your account. Instead do letters and numbers from different things in you life suck as if you have a dog named jack your brothers name is bobby and your mom was born in 1762 then in could be- jaobby1762. Nobody would guess that
