How To Protect Your Personal Information
Here are ways to protect your personal information when using the Internet and online services:

Use a firewall to prevent unauthorized access to your computer.
Use a virus-checking program and keep it up to date.
Keep your operating system and programs up to date.
Close all active programs and logoff before leaving a computer that you share with others.
Restrict all other folders or directories to "no share" if you use file-sharing programs.
Choose a user ID that is different from government documents, such as a Social Security or driver's license number. Also, do not use your birthdate or some other date or word that is either easy to guess.
Choose a strong password using a combination of letters, numbers and special characters that are meaningful to you and yet not easily guessed by someone else. Keep your password private.
Do not trust email requests for personal information. On Web sites, look for the lock symbol, which signifies a secure site before supplying personal information. If in doubt, ask.
When using open Internet chat and forum services, do not supply personal or financial information or more information than necessary to define your problem.

 

Read privacy statements to learn how your information will be collected and used.
Safeguarding your personal information is our top priority. Part of that commitment is making you aware of popular identity theft and fraud scams and providing you with information to protect yourself. 
Although they may be difficult to identify, you may receive hoax emails, such as phishing scams, that look authentic and appear to have been sent by a company you recognize. These emails ask you to provide or confirm your sensitive personal information by clicking on links. To entice you, they often claim an urgent or threatening condition concerning your account, or offer you a prize. You should not reply or click on any links in the email or provide any personal information without verifying that the email is legitimate through another channel. Intuit does not solicit sensitive customer information via email. If you receive an email message that appears to come from us that requests such information, please forward it immediately to: ernest@ernestlee.com. We will respond quickly to mitigate potential damage.
