How Secure Are You Online: The Checklist

by Thorin Klosowski, http://lifehacker.com

Think you do enough to secure your passwords, browsing, and networking? Prove it.

Not all computer security is about tin foil hats and anonymous browsing. Everyone who uses a computer has a horse in the security race. For the purpose of this post, we’re breaking down online security into four essential parts: passwords, browsers, at-home Wi-Fi and networking, and browsing on public Wi-Fi. Within those categories we’ll give you a checklist of everything you should do, from the bare minimum to the tin-foil-hat best.

Think you’ve done your due diligence with your security? Jump to any of the four sections below to see how you stack up (and boost your security where you may be lacking):

  • Password Security Checklist
  • Browser Security Checklist
  • Home Network Security Checklist
  • Public Wi-Fi Security Checklist

You can find the checklists at  How Secure Are You Online: The Checklist.
