5 tips for better cybersecurity – Naked Security

As it’s National Cybersecurity Awareness Month we thought we’d construct a list of our top five security tips. No matter what age, gender or profession you have, the basics are just as important as the rest.

1. Be careful who you communicate with

Sometimes criminals will make fake dating profiles or social media accounts specifically to target you. Just because it seems like they have a lot in common with you, doesn’t mean they really do.

2. Use two-factor authentication

You can do this with an app such as Google Authenticator, or from SMS codes sent directly to your phone. If you want to be super secure you can do it with a hardware key that you plug straight into your computer or laptop.
