Don’t let others steal your confidential data!
- Never tick ‘remember my password’ when you use a public computer.
- Make sure your laptop is protected by strong Antivirus Software before using any unknown network. We recommend out ITC Managed AV Protection which regularly finds viruses on computers already protected by other AV solutions.
- When you use a public computer change the browser window to the private window by left clicking on ‘File‘ in the top left corner and selecting ‘New Incognito window‘ if you use Chrome browser, or ‘New private window‘ if you use Firefox.
- Before you travel, check whether there’s wifi in the place where you are staying; if not – you may want to think of arranging some travel plan to have web data, e.g. with your mobile operator.
