  • Keep all of your software up to date to cut down on vulnerabilities that bad actors can exploit. 
  • Back up all of your files via a cloud storage service, external hard drive or -- even better -- both. 
  • Always turn on two-factor authentication, which incorporates texts and emails into the login process. Where you can, consider opting for three-factor authentication, which combines the use of a password, an item you have in your possession (such as a fob) and a characteristic that's unique to you (such as a fingerprint or face ID).
