Welcome to Civics Online, I want to introduce you to basic resources for protecting yourself online. We will discuss the crossover in protecting your digital identity and information and recognizing good sources and factual information.

The basics of digital security:

  • Choose a quality (long) password or passphrase and do not reuse passwords
  • Use a Password Manager to help you keep unique passwords
  • Use multifactor authentication (MFA, 2FA) with your accounts – you should need a code or text message to verify your identity and log in
  • Keep your machine up to date, turn on automatic updating when you first buy a phone, tablet or computer
  • Do not rush. If an email or website conveys a sense of urgency, stop and THINK before you click.
