Two simple online security precautions everyone should take


With hackers and identity thieves rampant online, a clean computer is a safer computer

There's an issue we have been reading a lot about recently that we all need to pay attention to. The incidence of identity theft and the nefarious hacking of everyday users has risen drastically in the last 2 years.

Both can greatly disrupt your life. Here are a couple quick things you can do to mitigate risk:

  1. Delete your browser history: if you ever get hacked, thieves can learn a lot about you from your browser history. If you delete your history every once and a while there will be less personal data to exploit. (Before you delete your site history, make sure you use a tool like Keptr to backup the pages you want to save for future use). 
  2. Use a password manager: to make sure you don't leave passwords to sites and online services stored in an unstructured and insecure way, we highly recommend a password manager like 1Password and a similar product for this purpose called, Keeper. Use of these products will prevent this vital information from failing into a hackers hands and mis-used for identity theft. For more information on other options, this is a good read.

Because security is a big issue, we bet you have a lot of other tips. Feel free to share them below!
