  1. Reconsider what you put online. This goes beyond social media posts. Even sharing your telephone number with a store associate can come back to bite you later.
  2. Use password managers. This way, you can use different, randomized passwords for all your sites without losing track of them.
  3. Use two-factor authentication. It’s a no-brainer.
  4. Encrypt the information on your drive. It’s easier than it sounds!
  5. Read privacy policies, otherwise you may be signing away more than you think.
  6. Monitor your credit. That way, if someone tries to use your info to make a big purchase, you can stop them in their tracks.
