What are the top three things I should do to stay safe online?

To protect yourself on the internet, focus on these three key practices:

a. Use Strong Passwords: Create complex passwords that are hard for others to guess. Use a mix of letters, numbers, and special symbols, and avoid obvious information like birthdays. Consider using a password manager to keep track of them.

b. Keep Software Updated: Regularly update your operating systems, browsers, and apps. These updates often include patches for security vulnerabilities that hackers can exploit.

c. Be Skeptical of Unknown Links and Emails: Don’t click on links or download attachments from unfamiliar sources. These could be phishing attempts aimed at stealing your personal information.
