Saturday is data privacy day.
Did you know taking that Facebook quiz to find out your real age might seem like harmless fun, but one wrong click could put your online data at risk.  The Better Business Bureau's Veronica Cracker says 2016 has become known as the year of the "hack". She says when you're online it's not just financial information you need to be worried about. "A lot of your personal information can bleed into your financial information. So your birthdate, your address your phone number. Once someone gets a hold of that information its easy for them to gain access to your financial accounts."
So how can you protect yourself? Be wifi wise and remember not all wifi networks are secure. Lock, secure your devices with secure passwords and always think before you click. Cracker says be wary of communications that urge you to act immediately or offers something that sounds too good to be true.

According to a survey by the National Cyber Security Alliance and Zogby International only 26 percent of Americans felt “their home computer was safe from viruses” while a mere 21 percent felt safe from hackers.*
