  • Install the most up-to-date antivirus and anti-spyware programs on all devices, and update these software programs as they become available. Run these programs regularly to provide maximum protection for your device.
  • Access sensitive data only through a secure location or device; never access confidential personal data via a public computer, such as in a hotel or cybercafe.
  • If you have children, set up a separate computer they can use for games and other online activities.
