Stay Safe Online During Tax Time
From the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCA) and the IRS
Before you start working on your taxes, beware of which Wi-Fi network you connect to – make sure it is secure.
Here is a great article with a short video that the AARP put out about public wi-fi usage. https://www.aarp.org/money/scams-fraud/info-2020/keep-data-secure-public-wifi.html
Advice from NCA and the IRS:
Public wireless networks are not secure. If you are filing your taxes online make sure you are doing it on a secure and personal network. We advise the use of a Virtual Private Network (VPN) any time you need to operate on Wi-Fi.
