How do to stay secure while traveling?
Summer holidays are on! Here are a few security tips from our #100securedays to help you stay secure during your holidays.
Tip 1: Install a tracking app on your devices and make sure you have the right security controls on them just in case it gets lost or stolen. #100securedays
Tip 2: Sharing so much information online can be risky, keep it minimal. So much can be used and misused online, be aware of what you share and make sure your account is private.
Tip 3: Don’t carry all your sensitive documents with you when you travel. Only your passport, visas or residence permits (if required) are the most important documents you need with you. Even when it comes to your credit/debit cards, don’t take them all. Carry only what you need and lock it up in a safe place. #100securedays
Tip 4: While you are on your holidays try to pause mail deliveries that carry any sensitive information. Ask them to deliver the information after you get back. #100securedays
Tip 5: Make sure you keep a note of all your sensitive information, encrypt that information safely in a secure place. This will be easier to report it if it’s lost/stolen. #100securedays
Tip 6: How do you travel without the internet?
Just because Public Wi-fi need a password when you log-in, doesn’t mean your online activities are encrypted especially if it involves confidential information. 100securedays
Best Practice: Get a portable router or your own wifi hotspot, you can purchase this even at the airport.
Tip 7: Monitoring your accounts especially when you travel is good practice. If you’ve noticed any unusual behavior or transaction in your account, contact your bank immediately. #100securedays
