Every day cybercriminals steal the online identities of people just like you. It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, whether you are male or female, or where you live. Cybercriminals are always looking to take advantage of people who make it easy for them to steal from.

There are a number of ways you can take control of your online identity:

Setting your social media to private

Cybercriminals can piece together info from your social media and all over the internet to steal your identity. Check the privacy settings on your devices, apps and social media so that you’re only sharing information with people you know. Complete your privacy check-up.

Using a different password for each of your important online accounts.

Passwords are the first line of defence against cybercriminals. If you’re using the same password on multiple accounts, by guessing one of your passwords a cybercriminal could access all of your accounts. Make a pledge for better password security.

Never provide your details via a link in a message.

Scam messages are one of the most common ways cybercriminals try to steal your information online. Think you know how to spot a scam? Put your skills to the test – take the quiz.
