Fort Walton Beach, Fla. – Lewis and Jurnovoy, a Fort Walton Beach bankruptcy law firm, has published a guide about protecting financial information from theft this month. Lewis and Jurnovoy are determined to help their community make wise choices about their finances.

The first tip Lewis and Jurnovoy gave to their community to protect their financial information from fraud or theft is to monitor bank statements every month. With statements becoming increasingly popular online, it’s even more important for families to take the time to evaluate each transaction. If charges appear they are unsure about, Lewis and Jurnovoy recommend immediately calling their bank, creditor, or company the transaction involved. As the saying goes, it’s better to be safe than sorry, so be sure to check bank statements routinely.

According to the Chapter 7 law firm in Crestview, passwords are another important thing to monitor routinely. Passwords hold the key to endless amounts of financial information. If passwords are easy to guess, it’s that much easier for someone to steal financial information to make unauthorized purchases. It’s extremely important to change passwords often. The longer the same passwords are used, the more time a hacker has to steal it. Not only should passwords be changed often, but they also need to be complex and unique. Many families make the mistake of using the same password for every account they have. If families do this, once a hacker can get into one account, they’ll be able to get into them all. The most important password protection is the makeup of the password itself. Use a variety of characters, letters, and numbers. Also, avoid using easy to find information like birthdays or addresses.

It’s essential in the online world prevalent today to be as safe as possible with sensitive information. For more information on how to protect finances, contact Lewis and Jurnovoy today at (850) 863-9110
