Internet Security Tips

Below are some suggestions to help protect your privacy and keep your information secure:

  • Choose a password that is easy for you to remember but difficult for others to guess. Passwords are case sensitive, must be between 6-20 characters and can include numbers and characters.
  • Some Web browsers prompt you to save user names and passwords for various sites on the internet. This feature can be useful, but can put your personal information at risk. If possible, you should disable this option so no one can log in as you.
  • If you use a public or shared computer, it’s important that you always sign out completely at the end of each session by click the LOG OUT link. Doing this will remove the possibility that another person could use the same computer to view the contents of your account. Where possible, delete the Web browser’s cache and cookies. The cache maintains a copy of the web pages that have been viewed recently.
  • Because computers are vulnerable to viruses or online attacks that seek to intercept sensitive information provided through the Internet, your computer should have an up-to date anti-virus program and make use of a firewall.
  • You should not leave your computer unattended while logged in. If you have to leave your computer, log out of all programs and close all windows that might display sensitive information. myUHS automatically logs you out if there has been no online activity for 20 minutes.
