This topic can get really deep but I wanted to provide people with a general guide to be safe online. Cyber crime is never going to stop but there are steps everyone can take to protect themselves.
Tips for protecting yourself online:
- Never reuse passwords.
- If the account is not a vital account give a fake name.
- Always use 2FA if possible.
- Assume every website will have a data-breach at some point in time.
- Always use a VPN.
- Give as little information as needed.
