Every year, millions of people are affected by cybercrime. Consumers lost more than $1 billion in 2015 as a result of web-based frauds, according to the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center. In honor of Safer Internet Day on February 7th, Hackers for Hire is promoting seven tactics to help customers combat online threats and maintain a safe and secure digital environment.

Following tips to keep you safe online:

1. Updating your PCs and mobile devices is essential.
The strongest protection against viruses, malware, and other internet risks are the newest security software, web browser, and operating system. Turn on automatic updates to get the latest fixes as soon as they're released.

2. Be wary of phishing schemes.
To deceive people into exposing private accounts or login information, phishing tactics send them fake emails or drive them to fraudulent websites. Any links, attachments, or pop-up windows from unknown sources should be avoided. Emails impersonating a firm, bank, or organization should be reported to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), as well as the firm, bank, or organization impersonated in the email, at spam@uce.gov.

3. Individual data should be kept confidential.
Hackers may determine your passwords and answer security questions in password reset services using your social media accounts. Set your privacy settings to private and don't provide personal information like birthdays, addresses, or your mother's maiden name. Connection requests from people you don't know should be avoided.

4. Verify the security of your internet connection.
To safeguard your home wireless network, always use a password. When utilizing public Wi-Fi networks, take care with the information you send and receive.

5. Shop with caution.
Check to see if the website employs secure technologies before you order online. Verify sure the site URL begins with HTTPS when you go to the checkout screen. Also, examine whether the page has a little locked padlock sign on it.

6. Use the strongest passwords you can.
A strong password has a combination of capital and lowercase letters, digits, and special characters and is at least eight characters long.
