Each morning as I boot up my seven-year-old's ChromeBook, I watch as she opens up an internet browser, logs into her school system and then into Zoom and I marvel at the amount of passwords my first grader manages. When I think about how easy it would be for her to click a wayward link, or accidentally do a multitude of things on the internet, I cringe. In this online-centric time, setting up your family with the tools and knowledge to traverse the internet and applications safely is paramount.
February is Data Privacy month but at USAA, every day is an opportunity to protect your privacy. I had a chance to speak with Judy Titera, USAA assistant vice president and Chief Privacy Officer and she said,
“The pandemic has changed the way we work and play. After years of trying to limit screen time, our children are behind screens every day for school, and we are zooming with our parents and grandparents who might have had limited technology experience prior to 2020. Now more than ever we need to remain vigilant and take steps to protect the privacy of ourselves and our family.” -Judy Titera
Here are some steps to get started in protecting your privacy:
Get Informed & Talk About Privacy
Take Action to Stay Safe Off and Online
Manage Privacy on Devices & Apps
