For example, note:

  1. Online shopping

From books and clothing to appliances and groceries, many students enjoy the benefits of online shopping and fast delivery. However, it comes with some risks. We recommend that you do not shop using open Wi-Fi networks where intruders can easily obtain your CC data, make secure payments using PayPal, and watch for online ads that may ask you to fill out sensitive information and then use. Check the stores from which you shop as there are many fakes that do not have a physical address and their information is questionable.

2. Communication via Email

Students email daily for a variety of purposes, from connecting with their mentor to sending a complete essay. You need to be on the lookout for phishing scams, spam, fraudulent emails and other suspicious things. To be on the safe side, avoid emails with topics like "Your bank account is frozen.

Please contact… ". Do not hesitate to call your bank to check if everything is OK. Do not click on links before hovering over the mouse and check the URL: it should not differ from the one mentioned in the email. Do not open attachments unless the sender knows you, always check the sender.

Social media

It is one of the main sources of information on cyber attacks. When using Facebook, Instagram or any other social network, do not share your personal information (address, phone, SS number, etc.): this is number one and you do not need to explain it.

Define the security setting that hides information from strangers, verify friend requests from strangers, and think twice before posting a picture with a geolocation or other tag.
