Early January is a great time to start using healthy digital habits and you still have time to make a promise to yourself and try to follow them during the next year.

Here’s a list of simple healthy digital habits that can strengthen the safety of your personal data and even make life easier in the coming year, according to experts from cybersecurity firm Kaspersky.

Subscribe to notifications about account data leaks

 

You can get ahead of scammers in 2023 if you use services that scan the latest leaks and look whether they contain your data. Advanced password managers include this feature as well and quickly notify users if any of the saved logins or passwords are found in the recent data leaks.

Get a VPN for more privacy

 

VPNs are now a must-have for anyone who wants to stay safe and private online. Modern VPN solutions meet all user needs, for example, they are easy to use, provide high traffic speeds and keep personal data private.

Transfer documents to a safe place

 

You can create a folder on your computer or upload your documents to a password-protected cloud – but both of these options are potentially insecure and can lead to the loss of personal data.
