When a website knows that a different IP address is used to connect to a website, such as a Google account, two-factor authentication comes in handy. A text message is sent to the phone number registered for confirmation.
FREMONT, CA : As technology advances, keeping personal and consumer information safe on the internet becomes more difficult for companies of all sizes. Web security is important for preventing hackers and cyber-thieves from gaining access to sensitive data. Businesses risk malware spreading and escalating and attacks on other websites, networks, and IT infrastructures, if they do not have a proactive security strategy in place. If a hacker succeeds, the attack will spread from computer to computer, making it difficult to track down the source.
Avoid the risk of web security attacks with these security tips:
Use Secure Networks at All Times
Look at the address bar before signing into the bank website and other pages where one has personal information while logging into financial and other important websites. If the address begins with HTTPS, users can be sure it is secured (due to the “s”). If it does not, one is either on the wrong login page or the website is a spoof (fake). Never click on a suspicious-looking connection in an email. Even better, never click on a link that appears on a critical page, such as the bank’s website. To log in, simply go to the website link saved in the bookmarks or name them. They will understand the caution.
When a website knows that a different IP address is used to connect to a website, such as a Google account, two-factor authentication comes in handy. A text message is sent to the phone number registered for confirmation. If one has not logged in, they can change the password right away to protect their account.
Use Several Email Addresses
If one uses a different email for things like social media and ecommerce, personal banking email might be more secure. If someone hacks into one, they would not have access to the others immediately.
Be Wary of Posting the Email Address on the Internet
For nothing else, this is an invitation to spam, but it also sends out an open message to hack the email. Avoid sharing the email address in places where spammers can easily find it, such as forums, review pages, and message boards.
