On-Line Security

Most of the world we live in today involves on-line commerce, bank transactions or logging into some kind of secure site, so lets be smart about it and do all we can to protect ourselves from the hackers and scammers by followings a few simples rules;  A) Log into your accounts everyday to check up and make sure of no unauthorized transactions  B) Use different passwords for all your financial accounts  C) Increase the security of your passwords by combining upper and lower case letters, numbers or keyboard symbols ( #,@, *, ^, +)   D) Never allow e-commerce sites to store your credit card info and if buying something just input each time  E) You should change your banking passwords approx. every  6 months    So as you see it isn't a lot to do to assure ourselves some added security as unfortunately with the times we live in today ( to borrow a phrase I was used to hearing on the fitness circuit but applies to life in general)...... the cheaters are always ahead of the testers!
