6 easy ways to make your online banking safer

  1. 1. 6 EASY WAYS TO MAKE YOUR ONLINE BANKING SAFER SAFEBYTES SOFTWARE
  2. 2. One of the greatest things about the internet is that it has revolutionized the way in which the finance sector operates across the globe. Today, it is possible for people to instantly make payments from any part of the world and to move large sums of money from one point to the other. Online banking does, however, have its challenges, not least of which are concerns about security.
  3. 3. CYBER CRIMINALS  The internet is overflowing with cyber criminals, most of whom are motivated by the desire to get their hands on personal banking information. They use a wide variety of methods in order to achieve this, including sheer deception and through the use of malware. Fortunately, there are a number of things that you can do to protect your online banking privacy.
  4. 4. HAVE A STRONG PASSWORD  The first thing that you need to do is have a strong password. If your bank provides you with one, it will likely be strong enough to deter hacking attempts on your account. If you are asked to select one, make sure that the one that you choose is strong enough to withstand ongoing attempts by hackers to gain access to your account.
  5. 5. KEEP YOUR PASSWORD SECURE  Whatever you do, make sure that you never disclose your online banking password to anyone. We have already mentioned that criminal elements will use every means, including deception, to try and make you part with your banking information. Memorize your password, keep it away from prying eyes, and you should be fine while banking over the internet.
  6. 6. HAVE A STRONG ANTIVIRUS  Another of the many things that people neglect to do in order to protect themselves over the internet is to have a strong and up-to-date antivirus. Although having one is seemingly intuitive, a large number of people do not take the steps that are needed in order to protect themselves.
  7. 7. HAVE A FIREWALL ON YOUR COMPUTER  You can also protect your computer, and, by extension, your online banking presence through the use of a strong firewall. Windows comes with a native firewall, which is an important way in which hacking attempts are thwarted. You can also improve your security by getting one of the even stronger firewalls that are out there.
  8. 8. USE TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION  Another way you can keep prying eyes away from your banking details and your account is through the use of a two-way authentication process. What this means is that you will have a way, such as your phone, through which you can further authenticate your password.
  9. 9. DON'T OPEN EMAIL ATTACHMENTS  Email attachments are one of the ways through which cyber criminals spread malware across the internet. You can protect yourself while browsing across the internet by avoiding opening suspicious email attachments.
  10. 10. SCAN, REVIEW, AND UPDATE YOUR COMPUTER'S DRIVERS WITH DRIVERASSIST FROM SAFEBYTES  A great way of ensuring that you have a computer that works well and is well-protected is through the use of DriverAssist from SafeBytes. DriverAssist is a lightweight device driver management utility that automates the driver updating process on your computer. What this means is that you will never have compatibility issues with your PC's hardware. DriverAssist is one of those utilities that everyone should have on their computer and that can help boost PC performance.
