"S" is for Safe Passwords




Hi, your Members’ Watchdog here with the first in a series of posts to help you stay protected from fraud and cyber-crime. Criminals are always looking for ways to hack your accounts, steal your information, and make illegal purchases. Some studies suggest that over the last six years, identity thieves have stolen over 100 billion dollars. Let’s make sure it doesn’t happen to you. Here are a couple simple ways to fight fraud.
 
Use strong passwords. Your birthday doesn’t cut it these days. Incorporate capitalization, numbers and symbols.  Don’t repeat the same password on different sites and be sure to change them regularly. These days you need to be diligent and keep up with any security breaches on sites you use. If so, be sure to change your password immediately. 
 
When it comes to making online transactions, be sure to look for the “S” in the address. More specifically, any transaction website should have an “s” after the letters “http” in the web address.  The “S” stands for secure (easy to remember, right?).  “Https” should appear when you are in an area requesting you to login or provide other sensitive data. If you don’t see the “S,” the site might not be secure and vulnerable to hackers looking to steal your money, information, or identity.
 
Well, that’s it for this month. Be sure to update or confirm your contact information with SCCU so we can alert you immediately for any suspected fraudulent activity. Also, sign up to receive our monthly articles that will go into greater detail on how to help prevent fraud and protect your identity!
