I’ve previously written about bad tech habits that should be broken, but here are some good tech habits that can not only save you time and money, but can also protect your identity:

  • Backup your computer regularly to avoid heartbreaking data loss. There are tons of affordable online choices that can automatically and securely backup your data.
  • Monitor your privacy settings on social media networks and ensure you aren’t revealing too much information.
  • Clean your tech gear as often as you’d clean any other germ or bacteria magnet, including your phone, keyboard, mouse, etc. Studies have shown that phones can have 10 times more bacteria than a toilet seat.
  • Increase security and privacy by creating multiple users per account. Also limit their permission levels to prevent unauthorized users from installing dangerous programs.
  • Change passwords regularly, without using information that is sensitive to your identity or interests. Consider an online password manager to help you securely and easily remember multiple passwords.
  • De-clutter your computer’s desktop and hard drive. Remove unwanted files and programs that do nothing but slow down your computer.
  • Limit your activity on public Wi-Fi. Remember it’s a wireless NETWORK that means you’re sharing it with other people, who could potentially access your data. Don’t do anything sensitive while using public Wi-Fi, and always assume someone can see what you’re doing.
  • Be sure your programs are kept up to date, including antivirus software, your OS, web browsers, etc. Any easy way to stay on top of this is by choosing auto updates whenever available.
