Protect your access. Don't let them in

Do you lock your door when you leave your home? You should also protect your devices and online access against access by strangers the same way.

The personal data you hold on your computer, smartphone or tablet is a valuable commodity. Think, for example, of the credit card details you logged with an online shop, or your online banking login data. This makes it all the more important to protect your access to these sites. That’s why you should use only strong passwords to log in.

There is also an interview with security expert Oliver Hirschi you can read on this topic (in German).

Check the s-u-p-e-r.ch website and «eBanking – but secure!» (EBAS) (https://www.ebas.ch/en/) from 3 May onwards to discover the dangers you need to be aware of, and what simple steps you can take to protect yourself.

Keep it simple? Not with passwords!

Strong passwords consist of at least 12 characters, containing upper and lower-case letters, numbers, and at least one special character.”
