Data protection.

Good data protection makes it hard for people to find ways into your accounts. The best defence against identity theft or an online scam is using a password or authentication method for your accounts that can’t be guessed. 

Two-factor authentication can also help as a new code is generated each time you access your account. The other method is to ensure quality data protection software installed on your devices.
 

Data protection software.

Data protection software operates by performing hundreds of checks against dodgy websites or unsecured contacts. A quality data protection program will automatically perform these checks each time you use your device and warn you if any sites you visit might prove a risk. You should also be able to monitor the number of potential dangers and cyber-attacks your devices are exposed to and see reports on any risks to your software.

However, having online protection software doesn’t make you bulletproof. If your software warns against a particular website or link, take notice. Some may also give you a browser extension option to search only recommended links and websites to minimise your online risk.
 

Credit protection. 

Right now, Yonda uses two-factor authentication, but soon we’ll be able to offer more products for protecting your credit information:
