"We all make compromises daily when it comes to online security. Everybody wants to be safe and secure when making purchases online, but practically none of us do everything necessary to keep our data secure."It's not specific to Mac users, these lessons are important for everyone who operates online regardless of the type of computer they use.
- Don’t reuse user names or email addresses
- Use secure payment systems (not credit cards)
- Only shop secure websites
- Stop using simple passwords
So instead of using a password like "watchdog" choose something like "Consum9rW#tchd0g" and you might save yourself a LOT of bother, heartache and money.
