Bytetin Twenty-One: Treats, not tricks.

October 29th, 2021 Posted in


It’s our last advisory for this month. 

Congratulations on making it to the end of our month of cyber security tips. You are now much harder to hack than at the start of October!  

We’d like to finish off the month with a review. Now is the time to look back at the bytetins that you’d said you’d work on another day and get them done. 

Bytetin One: Level-up… by securing your router

Bytetin Two: Habit – declutter your applications regularly

Bytetin Three: Level-up… with a non-personal, personal email account

Bytetin Four: Level-up… with mobile protection

Bytetin Five: Habit – Social Media: share with caution

Bytetin Six: Level-up… with a password manager

Bytetin Seven: Level-up… by using multi-factor authentication

Bytetin Eight: Habit – Keep your apps up to date

Bytetin Nine: Habit – Don’t get phished

Bytetin Ten: Level-up… by disposing of items you don’t need

Bytetin Eleven: Level-up… by creating more than one account on your laptop

Bytetin Twelve: Level-up… by installing an ad blocker on your browser

Bytetin Thirteen: Habit – Physical security

With the habits we suggested, why not set yourself regular calendar reminders, so that they become a part of your weekly schedule.  

If you only take one thing away from this month, though, it is: install a password manager. We and our team think these nifty tools are simply life-changing – both from a productivity and security perspective!  

We hope you’ve enjoyed reading through our Bytetins and that they’ve helped you to stay cyber secure. If you’d like to learn more about cybersecurity, then be sure to read through our blog and guides, which we update weekly with the latest security and data protection news, analysis and insights.
