As we know, hacking and identity theft make us more vulnerable than ever when we shop with a credit or debit card — whether in a store, over the phone, or online. So, we need to do all we can to protect ourselves.
In the infographic below fromSainsbury’s Bank, “We’ve put together 15 steps for safe online shopping, along with how to stay safe using mobile devices, and Wi-Fi. We’ve also included tips on what to do if you encounter any illegal activity.”
As part of this presentation, a 21-item true-false quiz on online/social privacy was conducted. Through this post, you may take the quiz in one of two ways:
Look at the two screens below for the questions. There is a separate PDF file with the answers under the quiz.
Look at the YouTube video that is embedded at the bottom of the post. The video includes the answers and a discussion for each question. The audio quality is very good.To clearly view the YouTube version of the quiz, use the full-screen mode!!
“There’s a war raging between hackers and companies, and you’re caught in the crossfire. Every time a company gets hacked, you have to change your password. And don’t you dare reuse it somewhere else. Dreaming up a different password for every site and service is the only way to keep your stuff safe online, but it’s also a gigantic nuisance. There’s one thing you can — and should — do to help: Get a password manager program.”
“I have more than 150 different logins and counting. I’d have to be Rain Man to memorize that many passwords. So I went on a hunt for the best services for storing all my passwords, and whittled down the list to four that get the job done and offer enough security for most of us:1Password,Dashlane,LastPass, andPasswordBox. LastPass is a good choice for people who use newer technology like fingerprint scanners. For the really paranoid, 1Password offers the most control over where your encrypted vault of passwords gets stored.”
“For most people, I recommend Dashlane. It’s simple, so you’ll actually use it. It may even save you clicks.”
