Protecting Personal Information Online

APCSP-JRCYCL

Which of the following practices can be used to protect personal information online?

Select TWO answers.

A

Access a Virtual Private Network: a VPN will encrypt traffic to and from a network to make interactions online more secure.

B

Connect to a proxy server: these servers mask personal IP addresses from websites and make it easy for users to use the Internet while logged into personal accounts.

C

Use a password manager: these sites keep track of complicated passwords so that users don’t have to try to memorize a different password for each site they use.

D

Find a web-based proxy: these websites route traffic through a proxy server and can be used for any online interactions.
