Bust a cap in a Hacker: How to protect online accounts from Hackers!

By Briana Booker

Financial fraud online is becoming a bigger issue as our technology gets more and more advanced! It is based upon us not taking enough basic precautions to not be victims to perpetrators. This morning someone tried to hack into one of my online accounts! It only takes one easy opening for a hacker to make you vulnerable and cause numerous financial and social destruction for you!

Here below are some measurements you should take to protect yourself from online account hacking:
  • Make sure when you are at an ATM machine you cover your hand completely! Metal on the ATM can reflect your hand. It is like the bank is setting you up to get robbed. Cover your hand with your body! Professional hackers often watch you at the ATM machine to hack your pin number.

  • Look around your surroundings. You have eyes for a reason. I rather look and be rude than be harmed. It only takes one effort to get your information

  • Use different passwords for each and everyone of your online accounts. I do this with my email accounts and everything i use online! I think this is the reason the person had a hard time hacking my account! Thank  goodness for Google! They show you last IP address log in as well as send you notifications when someone tries to retrieve your password! I always send a reset to an account i do not use for anything, just in case.

  • Do not be a simpleton. Never set your password as anything too obvious! No birthdays, no street address, no social security numbers...nothing personal. Those are the first materials hackers use! And all are easy to obtain with a quick engine search.

  • Use characters people would least expect in a password. Mix upper and lowercase letters, shift-number keys, NEVER SPELL WORDS! It works like a charm!

  • Protect and check your credit reports and bank accounts every couple of weeks!  AAA offers this with membership! I hear American Express has a great program as well!

  •  When an error message happens when you try to make online payments or log in a social network, close the web page and log in as normal. Do not enter it on the log in error screen! And always look for bad English! Do not be a victim!
I hope this is useful!
