Don’t save passwords to your browser
Locally stored browser passwords were designed for ease and efficiency, but now are making it equally easy for criminals to take over your computer, files and network. New forms of ransomware steal passwords stored in web browsers like Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. Criminals then have access to your network, a back door for future attacks and a means to lock up all your files and backups.
- Do not save passwords to browsers
- Routinely update your browsers every few weeks
- Use Multifactor Authentication for all applications
- Use Unique, Long and Strong passwords for all applications
