Protecting Your Online Identity

Posted on October 12th, 2018 by Alert Protective

At Alert Protective, we take pride in protecting our Chicagoland customers from break-ins and intruders. But another facet of privacy inevitably stems into the digital world as well. As more and more of our lives become digital-centric, it’s important to learn what it takes to protect your online identity as well. Keep these tips in mind to ensure your online privacy stays protected!

Keep Profiles on Private

Don’t leave your social media profiles on public; this is asking for someone to get ahold of your information and even keep tabs on your physical location. Instead, turn your profiles on private so people cannot keep track of who you are or where you are. This will also ensure that only your friends and family members are following you, not strangers.

Use a Password Manager

Using the same password for every site is just asking to get hacked on multiple accounts. Through our experience as a security companies in Chicago, we have learned it is best to download a password manager that generates a random password of different letters and numbers for each of your accounts. It’s a good idea to do this when you get a new computer.

Two-Factor Authentication

This is another way to add an extra layer of security to your account. This means that when you log in as usual to your accounts, you will get a one-time security passcode automatically sent to your phone via text message or authenticator app.

What are your best tips and tricks for protecting your online identity? As always, if you are interested in increasing your protection for your home or place of business, please call our security company in Chicago!
