Stay Safe Online During Tax Time

From the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCA) and the IRS

Before you start working on your taxes, lock down your logins. 

It is a great idea to associate updating your passwords with tax time.  Don’t forget your home wireless router!  Make sure that the administrative and wireless passwords are updated.

Advice from NCA and the IRS: 

Create long and unique passphrases for all accounts and use multi-factor authentication (MFA) wherever possible. MFA will fortify your online accounts by creating an extra layer of security, such as a unique one-time code sent to your phone. Most major email and online tax preparation services have this tool available.
