Other protections

There are some basic steps to help safeguard your personal information when using a public computer or someone else’s device.

Always remember to:

  • Sign into any relevant accounts or devices as a ‘Guest’ to avoid your personal details being saved.
  • Use a secure Internet connection and look for the padlock symbol to check that you are browsing secure websites.
  • Sign out of your account when you are finished and close your browsing windows.

These measures will help prevent others from using your account, finding out what searches you made or what sites you visited when you were using the device.
