The No. 1 tech resolution to consider for 2021

HTC invites you to make a resolution worth keeping in 2021. It’s time to make your privacy and security of your online information a priority. From online banking login information to streaming service passwords, online scammers are on a never-ending hunt for unprotected online users.

Whether you’re a small-business owner, entrepreneur, or a casual online shopper and web surfer, you need to protect your intangible online properties. A study by on-line security company McAfee reveals the average American has over $55,000 in digital assets. Use the list below to consider the websites and platforms you use via the internet:

  • Email
  • Online banking
  • Online shopping
  • Restaurant delivery services
  • Social media
  • Streaming service (i.e.: Netflix, Hulu, HTC TV MAX, etc.)
  • Subscription services (i.e.: music, fitness, or education apps)

Unlike your physical possessions, digital resources are intangible and difficult to protect without taking the proper security measures. The personal information stored on these websites, in the cloud, or on your device is incredibly valuable to online thieves. With access to your sensitive information, online scammers can sell your information, damage your credit, reputation, or business long before you’re even aware your information has been stolen.

This year, resolve to protect your information, money, and personal data from online hackers. Residential HTC High-Speed Internet members receive the Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security software for free. The security suite provides the most comprehensive, intuitive protection for your personal data so you can shop, bank or browse with confidence. Internet members can download the antivirus software on up to three devices by logging into the My Account app or website.
