This is a good read - I recommend it to all. HERE is the original article. The comments below each of their points on this page are mine.
Habit #1: Think before you click.
Believe it or not, "common sense" is the most powerful security you can put into place. My next post will cover this in a lot more detail.
Habit #2: Use HTTPS where it matters.
That "S" at the end means "secure". It makes for a safer connection (and usually loads faster). Just about every major site that involves a login should support an HTTPS option. Most will switch over at the login page itself (because switching after you've sent your password is not very secure).
Habit #3: Don’t memorize passwords. Manage them.
You shouldn't be using the same passwords for everything but a separate password for everything is burdensome. Most browsers offer to save your passwords and that's very handy but a lot of people, in my experience, don't seem to take advantage of these kind of options.
Habit #4: Use 2FA all day, every day.
Good sites will offer Two-Factor Authentication. This is where a site will text you a code to be entered as a second step to logging in. Might seem a little inconvenient but it's a heckuva lot more secure - a hacker would have to have figured out your password and have your phone in his/her possession.
Habit #5: Know when to VPN.
This may seem beyond most people but a VPN is just a very secure connection through which you do the rest of your stuff. Imagine being on vacation in Mexico and using your laptop on the hotel's possibly-suspect wifi, making a single secure connection to your home PC and then doing all your banking. Prompt Care offers VPN solutions.
