    Atom protecting you

    We take security very seriously, especially when any of your data is involved and to help us do that we are using best-in-class security and are always looking for ways to improve it. We will do all that we can to protect your information/data.

    You protecting you

    Here are some basic tips on how to keep your information secure online.

    Don’t reveal private information in response to an email, text, letter or phone call, unless you are certain that the request is from someone you are confident is genuine.

    The basics

    Don’t leave your device unattended in a public place while you are logged in. If you need to use public Wi-Fi, you can find tips on staying safe on the Get Safe Online site.

    We also strongly advise you to never access or change your personal information if you are in a public place and always log out of any site when you are finished using it.

    Your computer

    We suggest that you install effective antivirus/antispy software and firewall and ensure they are running when you use your computer.

    A secure connection

    Make sure you use a secure internet connection. Look out for the “https” at the beginning of the website address, as well as the padlock security symbol in the browser frame.

    Scams and phishing

    Scams are designed to trick you into giving away information that could be used to steal your identity or defraud you. Phishing typically involves emails that are sent to many people pretending to be from a bank or other trusted organisation. They may try to trick you into going to a site, to update your password for example, but the site will be a fake.

    If you are unsure about any email you receive, don’t reply; just delete it. You can find guidance on using email safely at Get Safe Online.
