Opening E-mail Attachments Safely

Opening E-mail Attachments Safely

Posted by: Innovative Technologies on Tuesday, September 15, 2015

Here are a few tips that will help keep you and your computer safe.

1. Check the sender.

Whether there’s an attachment in the email or not, messages from unknown senders can be risky. Often scammers will use safe-looking links or attachments in emails (See: How to Recognize Phishing) to steal your information. Your safest bet is to not open emails from those you don’t know. Now, if you know your daughter Linda is linda_email@yahoo.com and you’ve been expecting pictures from her, the attachment is probably safe. However, a word of caution: Even emails from people you recognize can contain viruses. If it looks suspicious at all (Is the subject line empty? Does the person’s name and email address appear as it normally does?), contact the person and ask them about the message before you open it. (See: Ways to Spot a Virus)

 

How to create a strong password

How to create a strong password

Posted by: Innovative Technologies on Thursday, August 20, 2015

Whether you’re using online banking or just checking email, it’s important to keep your information private and secure. One way to stay protected online is by creating strong passwords. An ideal password is long and has letters, punctuation, symbols and numbers that you can remember without writing down. The more complex your password is, the harder it will be for criminals to guess and gain access to your accounts. Using a different password for each site you use and avoiding sequences (1,2,3 or a,b,c) or information such as your birth date in your password will also help protect your identity and personal data.
