Data Privacy Day

Today is Data Privacy Day. Since Kenton’s my tech guru, I asked if he had any advice on how to help keep data private.

I’ve shared with you how much Kenton teases me about having multiple tabs open. He also used to tease me about knowing my password. My one password. So I’m sure he was smirking when he wrote, “Have a different password for every online login.”

It’s a good idea to change your passwords often, too. It can be difficult to track multiple passwords, so you might want to use a password manager. I use 1Password, which assigns a random letters-and-numbers password for me. I only have to remember one password for each login.

Kenton also warns, “Be careful about logging in from emails. Phishing is becoming a problem. You receive an email that says ‘log on to your account’ and links you to a page that’s NOT your provider. Check before you type your password and make sure you are where you think you are.”
