Safer Online

Online banking and fraud

  • Never email yourself your bank details
  • Your PIN is yours - Keep it to yourself! The police or bank will never ask for your
  • PIN or details. If anyone does, it’s a scam
  • If you get an email offering a deal that’s too good to be true – It’s a scam
  • If you think someone has accessed your account, report it to your bank immediately

Protecting your data

  • Password protect everything with a strong password - And never write it down on loose bits of paper
  • Don’t put answers to your security questions on your social media profile
  • Shred any old documents that contain personal information about you
  • Always back up all your work either using USBs or cloud storage
