Tip 4 – Avoid Scams

Know how to identify scams online. Everyone knows you never take candy from a stranger. The same principle applies online.

If someone offers you some new shoes, an iPad or told you that you won a trip to Hawaii – you should be suspicious. This might seem harmless, but these could be very dangerous ways to lure you in and steal your passwords or even your identity.

And sometimes, scammers might try to impersonate someone or something you know. It’s called phishing. So if it seems fishy, it probably is.
