Phishing scams appear to originate from a trusted source to trick a user into providing information. The attacker can then use this information to access your accounts, gather additional private information about you, and make purchases or apply for credit in your name.
Tip of the Week:
Hackers May Know Your Router's Default Settings. Always Change the Username and Password for New Routers Immediately.
WiFi routers usually come with default settings for the username and password. Hackers may be able to figure out your password using this default information. Once in your router, a hacker may be able to view your network traffic or even lock you out of your own network. When you get a new WiFi router you should follow the manufacturer's directions to change both the username and password. Make sure that the password is long, difficult to guess and not related to the network name.
