In the sitcom 1990’s sitcom Family Matters, beloved character Steve Urkel asks an important question that can impact our finances today; “Did I do that?”
It’s important for your security and peace of mind that any accounts that are opened or closed in your name are under your control. That’s why InvestorKeep will notify you of any accounts opened or closed with any financial institution you have linked on the InvestorKeep platform.
InvestorKeep takes it one step further by monitoring all your accounts (including your email) for cyber threats (online criminal activity). We’ll send you an alert anytime there is suspicious activity.
Protecting yourself from cyber threats is important not only with your finances but with any digital communication. Always be cautious when opening electronic files, clicking on links, or installing programs. Be sure you trust the source of any electronic communication before clicking, opening, or installing. Cybercriminals use a variety of different methods to get into your electronic devices and from there, your financial and identity information (if it’s not secure).
Enabling two-factor authentication is a very good way to make it difficult for cybercriminals to access any of your accounts (financial or otherwise). Nearly all banks and services providers use it, as does InvestorKeep. If two-factor authentication is an option for your email service, you should always use it as email is a very common way for cybercriminals to gain access.
Finally, if you’ve heard this once, you’ve heard it a thousand times, always use strong passwords. The harder your password is to guess, the better. You should not reuse passwords. Many people are using Password Managers: A computer program that allows users to store, generate and manage multiple personal passwords for online services while only having to remember one.
