#1 · Never click on a link inside any email you receive from Facebook, PayPal, a bank, or any other kind of financial institution, no matter how urgent the message seems or how authentic the email appears.

#2 · Use a secondary ³alias² email address for signing up to new services. Only use your primary email address for websites that you really trust.

#3 · Use secure passwords of 8 characters or more.

#4 · Don¹t use the same username/password combination on multiple sites or applications.

#5 · Having trouble remembering all your different secure passwords? Try using a secure password manager.
