  • Ensure that your computer is up-to-date with the latest security patches from software vendors like Microsoft, Apple, Adobe (Reader and Flash), Java, etc.
  • Secunia offers a program that will alert you to programs needing updates. 
  • Install and keep up-to-date the latest antivirus signatures from the product vendor.
  • Install a firewall.
    • A free version is available from Zone Alarm.
    • Windows users should activate the firewall that comes with the operating system.
  • Don't forget about your mobile phone and tablet, too! Make sure you keep your phone's operating system updated to the newest version. If you use our mobile app, ensure you're also using the most up-to-date version.
