    Update your browser

    Modern up-to-date browser software helps protect you against online problems. Just like any other software, it makes sense to use the latest, most secure web browser. The latest browsers have security features that block fake websites and protect against some viruses (but you still need anti-virus for advanced protection). If you have updated your computer regularly or bought it in the last couple of years, it is likely that you are already using an up-to-date browser. You can check by selecting 'About' on the browser menu. If this is not the case, you may want to get the new browser software and update it regularly for maximum protection.

    Tips to keep your devices safe

    install antivirus/ anti-malware software

    keep anti-malware and antivirus applications up-to-date

    perform regular scans for both

    don't click on email links or attachments from unknown senders.

    Do Not share your PINs, Passwords, OTPs with any one

    Delete cookies regularly

    Learn to spot fake websites

    Criminals use fake websites to con people into giving away passwords and bank details. The technical word for this is 'phishing'. They are good at making their websites look realistic. But you can often spot the fake ones:

    dodgy-looking web addresses

    poor design, typos or bad spelling

    they ask you to do something unusual

    a site doesn't display the padlock symbol in the address bar when you log on


    Do not share private information online

    Double-check privacy settings on social networking sites..

    What's your mother's maiden name? What's the name of

    the first school you went to? What was your favourite

    subject at school? What's your address? Birthday? Phone


    All this information is useful to people who want to steal

    your identity or break into your personal internet banking.

    You wouldn't give this information away to a stranger in the

    street but if you use social networking sites, such as

    Facebook, Twitter or Myspace, you could be oversharing

    personal data.


    You may want to think carefully about the information you

    put into your profiles on sites like this. It is also a good idea

    that you check the privacy settings on each site that you

    use to make sure you only share personal information

    with people you trust.


    Avoid online fraud

    If it's too good to be true, it probably is. When it comes to

    protecting yourself and your money on the internet be wary

    of ridiculous deals. Criminals may contact you by email,

    through websites you use, via sms or even by phone.


    If an attachments looks suspicious don't open them. Don't

    install software unless it comes from a website you trust

    (like this one). If you suspect that there is a problem with

    your personal internet banking, you can always talk to us
