🚨Cyber Risk: Educate your Family about Online Safety
Family Online Safety
Do Educate your Family
Children may be unaware of the dangers of the online world. It is up to parents to teach their children the dangers of sharing photos and personal information, such as vacation routines or daily schedules, which could be used to harm them.
Teach them to avoid downloading apps from unknown or untrustworthy developers, as well as playing games or taking online surveys that request personal information.
🚨 Never share personal information online. Don't respond to chat, emails, texts, or messages from strangers.
Never Publicize Family's Schedule
For instance you never disclose to a random stranger on the street when you are planning to go on vacation and leave your house empty.But many people happily post that kind of information on their social feeds for millions of people to find it and if you are not publicizing your family’s schedule (and secrets) online, your teens just might be. So you need to educate your family🧕.
🔒 Never disclose your personal details and family secrets online
Keep Personal Details Private
Be careful about sharing valuable personal information, such as ID card or passport numbers, credit card information and birth dates, in a chat, forum, text or email with people you do not know well or trust.
If you are shopping online, ensure you are on a reputable website before entering any sensitive information.
Use a strong password, passcode or biometric login to protect your accounts online.
🏧 Never disclose your personal banking details on phone with anyone and password, pin or OTP even with banking representative.
