In response to the rapid growth of online crimes in the digital world, #ProTech aims to combat and help prevent these by educating the public on how they can protect themselves (these are scary times indeed). #ProTECH101 Part 1 (posted yesterday) gave three tips focused on restricting the dissemination of personal information online as well as strengthening passcodes to avoid hacking incidents:

  1. Keeping personal information private
  2. Protecting our smartphones with pass codes 
  3. Promoting the use of stronger pass codes

This time, #ProTECH101 Part 2 focuses on making accounts more secure by restricting certain features such as the autofill feature available in online forms and log-ins. Disabling the autofill feature would not only decrease the risks of being victimized by hacking, but is also a good preventive measure against online identity fraud. Time to change your settings! #ProTech101
