**Tips & Tricks**

1. **Use a password manager.** A password manager is a software application that helps you create and store strong passwords for all of your online accounts. This is important because using the same password for multiple accounts makes it easier for hackers to access your information.
2. **Enable two-factor authentication (2FA).** 2FA is a security measure that requires you to provide two different pieces of information when you log in to an account. This makes it much more difficult for hackers to access your account, even if they have your password.
3. **Be careful about what you click on.** Phishing emails and websites are designed to trick you into giving up your personal information. Be wary of any emails or websites that you don't recognize, and never click on links or attachments unless you're sure they're legitimate.
4. **Keep your software up to date.** Software updates often include security patches that fix vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers. Make sure to install software updates as soon as they're available.
5. **Use a VPN.** A VPN (virtual private network) encrypts your internet traffic, making it more difficult for hackers to eavesdrop on your online activities. This is especially important when you're using public Wi-Fi networks.
6. **Back up your data.** Regularly backing up your data is the best way to protect it from being lost or stolen. There are many different ways to back up your data, so choose a method that's right for you and make sure to do it regularly.
7. **Be aware of the latest scams.** Scammers are constantly coming up with new ways to trick people out of their money or personal information. Stay informed about the latest scams so you can be on the lookout for them.
8. **If you're ever hacked, act quickly.** If you think your account has been hacked, change your password immediately and contact the company or companies that you have accounts with. You should also report the hack to the FTC at ftc.gov/complaint.
