Fort Knox or leakier than a sieve — how secure is your digital life? Are you leaving yourself open to hackers or online scams? Take this quiz and find out.
You’ll take 3 minutes to answer 10 questions. It’s short, fun, and informative. The quiz will reveal the chinks in your digital armour and show where you should focus to change your bad online habits.
Don’t overshare online. Avoid posting your email, phone number, or home address on blogs, forums, and social networks when it’s unnecessary. Never share your emotions, intimate pictures, and vacation plans with strangers online.
Create complex and unique passwords for your online accounts. Start using a password manager to help you generate strong passwords and store them in one safe place.
When browsing online, always protect your data and location. Use a VPN, which hides your IP address and creates a virtual tunnel for your data to safely travel across the web.
Never click on scammy links. Always verify the sender and contents of the email before clicking on anything.
Shop only on secure websites. The address of a safe website should start with “https://” (often preceded by a padlock symbol), where the letter “s” stands for “secure.”
Use multi-factor authentication for an extra layer of security whenever possible.
