7 Things Users Shouldn’t Do While Working From Home (or anywhere for that matter)

  1. Stay away from Facebook quizzes.
  2. Don’t tell the world 10 things about you on social media, since some of those may be answers to your forgot my password challenge questions.
  3. Don’t post things online that may give clues about your passwords (e.g., pet names). If your password is the name of your pet, you should probably change that anyway.
  4. Don’t post photos of your home workstation.
  5. Don’t click on questionable links, especially those prompted by urgency or fear.
  6. Be aware of your social media settings and which posts are or may become publicly accessible by anyone.
  7. Be aware of new friend requests from people you are already friends with but actually came from someone else that just copied their profile info.
