It is essential to make your devices, online identity, and activities more secure. Here are several tips to follow:
- Complex password entry.
Because of advancements in technology and the sophistication of hacking software, it is good to aim for passwords to be increasingly complex. It is important to never share your password with anyone else.
- Anti-virus software/freeware.
Most security products will block viruses and threats from accessing or affecting your device. These products usually offer a scanning facility to check your device and remove any malware in the process. Always consider the strength of your firewall and a good antivirus program to get the best results and keep your personal information as secure as possible.
- Be aware of “Phishing.”
Phishing emails and text messages may look like they are from a company you know or trust. Always check if the email comes from our domain: [email protected] . Do not hesitate to contact our customer support for confirmation if you have any suspicions.
- Do necessary updates.
It can be tedious to keep updating devices and software, but they often contain critical security updates. It is also important to avoid downloading too many extensions and it is better to reduce them to the necessary minimum.
- Be aware of Click Baits.
Part of securing your online life is being smart about what you click.
Don’t click links in emails or text messages unless they come from a source you trust.
- Keep an eye out for fraudulent websites.
If you receive an email impersonating Zeply and you are required to access a website, keep an eye out for the URL bar. If a padlock icon appears, this means that the website is safe. If not, the website may be a scam. Always ensure you are accessing www.zeply.com
