WIN an annual subscription to F-Secure ID Protection

Over the last six months, we’ve been doing more online than ever, from shopping to socialising, it’s undeniable that Covid-19 has changed the way we live. At the same time criminals are taking advantage of the situation and identity theft is increasing, happening more than 223,000 times* in the last year alone.

All the online services we’re using, whether it’s Netflix, Amazon or Zoom require logins and passwords. To protect our personal details from breaches, not only do we need strong passwords across the average 18 online accounts that we hold, we also need a way of knowing when our details have been compromised, with the potential to end up on the dark web ready to be exploited by criminals. Did you know that 41% of us reuse the same password on multiple accounts and 56% of us use the same password on multiple accounts with slight variations.

Identity theft and account takeovers often start with a weak password - that’s why F-secure created ID Protection, not only can you store and access all your passwords easily, securely and privately and generate strong unique passwords when you need to, it also helps you protect personal info such as usernames, passwords, credit card numbers etc. by alerting you to breached online services that you are using. ID Protection then gives you specific instructions on how to recover from the incident with minimum damage.
