Here some advice to protect our own internet access:

  • Use VPNs (Virtual Private Network) - it protects your identity and browsing activity from hackers, businesses, government agencies, and other snoops. When connecting to the internet, your data and IP address are hidden by a type of virtual tunnel. This keeps others from spying on your online activity;

  • Keep HTTPS connection always active - (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) is an internet communication protocol which protects integrity and confidentiality of data between the user's computer and the site;

  • Use safe passwords - always use passwords with at least eight digits with capital letters and small letters, numbers and symbols especially in services using sensitive data;

  • Adopt 2-step authentication - add an extra layer of security. It can be made by a token or a magnetic card or even by repeating back something that was sent such as SMS or a number generated by an app that is common to the user and the authentication system;

  • Keep a password manager - a basic safety tip is the recommendation of different passwords in different services. However with many active accounts, it is possible to forget some of them. In this case a Password Manager can be adopted. This software keeps passwords in a safe place as well as creating new passwords on user demand.
