Here are a few things we recommend for keeping your info safe — with us, and in general. For starters, make your password tough to guess. Mix up numbers, letters and special characters when you can. Make sure you never share it with anybody. And never reuse your NerdWallet account password on any other site. We also recommend using virus protection and firewalls. Make sure you never install programs from unfamiliar people or companies, or from suspicious emails. For any programs you install, apply all security updates. These steps will help protect you against identity theft and phishing attempts.
