Be discreet online and in public

From a young age, we learn that we shouldn’t talk to strangers. Nowadays, participating on social media and receiving calls or business visits from people we don’t know is very common, which is why we should be careful with the information we share.

Online

Sharing information on social media and other platforms is now part of our daily lives. Pay attention to what you publish and configure your security settings to block access to anyone you don’t know. That way, strangers won’t be able to use your information for other purposes, such as answering the verification questions of your accounts or creating more believable phishing emails.

In person or by phone

Don’t share information with those you can’t identify. Ask for more details to make sure people are who they say they are. When in doubt, don’t give any details. Instead, contact them directly through official channels such as their website.
