Ensuring Your Connection Is Secure When Working From Home

For many Americans, working from home has become a way of life that was unexpected. While being home may be more comfortable, it can bring about new security concerns when working on computers. Many people haven’t had to consider their private network security before working from home and now are searching for security and privacy tools and practices to make working from home both convenient and safe.

 

Making Passwords Priority

Passwords are critical to your digital security. A password for your work accounts should be separate from all of your other accounts. Strings of random words use symbols and numbers, and capital letters mixed with lower case letters increase a password security level. Using a password manager app will hold all of your passwords in secure vaults that only you can access. This is helpful as you will keep your passwords in order without writing them down, keeping your information handy and safe.

 

VPN

A VPN, a virtual private network, creates a secure digital connection between your device and the internet. This encrypted tunnel is also responsible for making sure your actual IP address remains obfuscated. A VPN is essential to maintaining security while on the internet; even if it slows your connection somewhat, it is necessary to protect your data. Finding the right VPN for your needs is vital for your satisfaction with service and security.

 

Most reputable VPN providers have apps for mobile and desktop operating systems that will keep you working seamlessly and securely. Make sure that you use a VPN provider that you can trust as they can theoretically see your traffic. Always research the VPN before choosing the right service for you.

 

Browser Extensions

Browser extensions provide a host of tools to make your web browsing more secure. It is essential to familiarize yourself with mechanisms that limit tracking by third parties, such as blocks that are provided by search engines. Looking into your search engine’s web browser extensions can help you create a personalized security system that fits how you use the web. Some popular browser extensions also include tools that keep your movement from being tracked after you leave the web and some that keep multiple sources from running on a site. It is your preference as to what you choose to manage through browser extensions.
