It is extremely important to take care of your identity when on the internet. One of the most unpleasant things you can possibly encounter whilst on the internet is identity abuse in that your identity can get stolen. Fraud prevention agency Cifas said the number of victims rose by 31% to 32,058 in the first three months of 2015, compared to the same period in 2014. Fortunately, there is a lot that you can do to minimize the risk of becoming a victim of identity theft.
Firstly, you should check and see what personal information you share publicly on the internet. For instance, your social media account privacy settings, the more you share publicly with the world, the more vulnerable you become to abuse of this information of yours.
In addition to privacy settings, it is important to install an antivirus program and a firewall to help protect you from attacks that can come directly from your computer via an email or online profiles on social media. If you have children then you should also think of their protection on the internet. This can be done by either filtering the internet so as to not let them access certain types of websites to parental control where you can also get a notification when they try to access a restricted website.
