What’s the best way to keep my identity safe online?Posted April 18th, 2012 by Tanner
The best way to keep your identity safe online is also the simplest. Don’t give out personal information. Keep your social security number, banking information, driver’s license number and personal information private. Obviously, don’t give information to creepers you meet online, but avoid giving it to friends and family as well.
Also, only deal with secure sites when shopping online. A secure internet site’s URL will begin with “https” rather than “http” and will have a “lock” icon somewhere in the window of the browser.
Other strategies include monitoring your credit report regularly, using strong passwords and never opening up unknown emails.
