- KEEP YOUR SOFTWARE UPDATED.
Having updated software helps remove vulnerabilities that hackers use to access your device.
- PROTECT YOURSELF WITH ANTI-VIRUS & FIREWALL.
Install antivirus software from a trusted vendor. This will help your device fight malicious attacks and block malware from entering your device and compromising your data.
- USE STRONG PASSWORDS.
Passwords are important in keeping hackers out of your data. Make sure you select a strong password that may only be guessed by yourself. Don’t use the same password twice and never give it out.
- TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION.
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) was introduced to EmpowerFX to provide an extra layer of security to your accounts. Make you enable your 2FA!
Whilst phishing, the attacker poses as an entity or company to trick the recipient into divulging credentials, clicking a malicious link or opening attachments that infect the user’s system with malware.
If you receive suspicious communication, delete it immediately. EmpowerFX will always contact you through official addresses.
