First, be honest: how many Internet passwords have you got? If you use the same one for everything, look out! When a wrongdoer finds it, he will be able to access your email, bank accounts, social networks, etc. Here are three tips.
1.- One account, one password. Eight accounts, eight passwords composed of at least 8 characters that include numbers, capitals and lower-case letters. Would you keep a master key to your house, car, office and strongbox? You had better not lose it or the crooks will strip you naked.
2.- Update your software. Don’t click on “Remind me later”. Immediate updates protect your operating system against a wider range of threats.
3.- Recovery telephone or email. Indispensable if you forget a password or in the event of suspicious movements. Accounts are blocked when somebody attempts unauthorised access and only you can recover access to them.

A home insurance policy with information technology (I.T.) protection includes computer assistance services (with the option of hardware repair and data recovery), mobile phone and tablet cover (with file recovery and backup copies) and protection of minors against digital violence.
