With so much technology at our fingertips sometimes we aren't careful enough with the information we're providing others through our home electronics. It doesn't take much for a hacker to somehow get a hold of your personal information that you typed into your internet browser on your computer or through an e-mail you sent from your smartphone. Hackers are smart enough to target only users who don't protect themselves because there are no barrier protectors that they have to get through.
Anytime you are online, either on your home computer, your smartphone, a computer at a friend's house, a public computer at the library or an internet cafe, or a friend's smartphone, and are entering personal information or banking information you need to be certain you are being protected. Online protection such as a secure web browser and virus protection software are exactly what you need to combat internet hackers.
You might not think that browsing the internet through your smartphone can lead to your personal information being stolen and leading you to become a victim of identity theft but it can happen. Any online portal is subject to being hacked and you having your identity stolen or your personal information being hacked into. Nobody wants that. So make sure that your web browser is secure, that you have top of the line virus protection software in place and that the websites you visit, especially your online banking sites, are secure.

Most reputable online banking sites are already equipped with the most air-tight of security measures so you don't have to worry too much about them but you should still make sure that the browser you are logging in to do your online banking is secure. Don't go onto a site that says its certificate is expired or can't be authenticated. Those could potentially lead you into some fishy situations. Going only to sites you trust and have been to before in the past can go a long way in ensuring that your personal information doesn't get stolen from you. You can never be too safe.
