Broward residents should be aware of online scammers during the holidays. The risks of cyber-attacks increase each year. Criminals use fake emails and websites to steal money and gain access to confidential information.  Follow these tips to stay safe online: do not shop using public computers or unsecured public WiFi networks; create stronger passwords using a combination of eight or more characters, upper and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols; look for the padlock in the address bar or a URL that starts with “https”; avoid using debit cards online and pay with credit cards for greater protection.
