6 steps to block email hackers

September 18, 2017

Ever had your email hacked? It’s not pretty. Here are six steps recommended by Christopher Elliott, in a Special for USA TODAY.

 

  1. If the Wi-Fi unit doesn’t ask for a password, don’t use it. It may be run by bad guys posing as a genuine network.

  2. Update your operating systems or software, including your applications, anti-virus, anti-malware and other software updates.

  3. Create strong passwords.

  4. Use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) while connected on any public Wi-Fi network. This will encrypt your communications and help reduce chances of being hacked.

  5. Activate anti-theft applications such as "find my phone" so you can lock your phone and change passwords if it's stolen.

  6. Never respond to a suspicious email. Initiate a separate email (don’t “Forward") or call to check before you respond and/or open an attachment. 

 

BONUS - THINGS TO AVOID:

 

  • Don’t post travel updates on social media. They can reveal your current and future travel plans in sufficient detail to give criminals an opening.

  • Don’t browse unsecured. Look for https:// in the address bar, signifying it’s a secure webpage.

  • Don’t leave your device unattended.
