  • Prevent Pfishing Attack - phishing attacks are common ways that hackers try to get your sensitive information by pretending to be someone else. If anyone asks you for your password, DO NOT give it to them. No one working at will ever ask you for your password.
  • Log Out When On Public Computer - if you are using a public computer such as the ones available at libraries or other public places, make sure to log out after using this or any other site. If you do not log out, the next user of the computer may be able to openly keep using your account.
