Ways to Protect Your Data
Make sure you protect your banking and other user IDs and passwords.
Choose a unique password that is difficult to guess.
- Don’t use passwords that are based on personal information that can be easily accessed or guessed.
- Don’t use words that can be found in any dictionary of any language.
- Use both lowercase and capital letters.
- Use a combination of letters, numbers, and special characters.
- Use passphrases when you can.
- Use different passwords on different systems.
Protect your password.
- Change your password regularly.
- Don’t write your password down and leave it where someone can find it. It is always best to memorize it.
- Don’t tell anyone your passwords, and watch for attackers trying to trick you through phone calls or email messages requesting that you reveal your passwords.
- Always remember to log out of online banking when you are visiting other websites or leaving your computer.
- Avoid using the same User ID and Password for different online services.
- Lowell Five employees will NEVER ask for your password.
There’s no guarantee that these techniques will prevent an attacker from learning your password, but they will make it more difficult.
