4. Use complex passwords and update them regularly. Complex passwords contain both uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, special characters, and are at least 8 characters long.
5. Only use websites that you know and trust. If you’re making an online payment or logging into a secure portal, make sure that the server certificate is valid and that traffic to and from the website is encrypted.
