Protect your information

It’s still very important that you take some steps to help keep up security when you’re online:

  • Protect your personal information, such as usernames, passwords and policy details, by not allowing anyone to see you entering them, and avoid public wi-fi usage
  • Notify us as soon as possible if you become aware of any security breaches
  • Use a strong password for your account. Try to think of something that is easy to remember, but hard to guess, such as a passphrase
  • Change your password regularly and try not to reuse the same password on more than one site
  • Don’t let your browser save your password for our websites
  • Be wary of websites, emails or phone calls that claim to be from us
  • Keep an eye on your accounts and check for any unauthorised transactions
  • Keep your devices up to date with firewall
