Stay Secure on Your Summer Travels

May 2, 2024


Ah, summer – the time for vacations and adventure! As you gear up for your summer travels, ensuring your personal security and protecting your devices should be top priorities. Take a cue from these travel safety and security tips to enjoy a worry-free vacation:

Mind the WiFi

While free WiFi may seem convenient, it's often unsecured, making you vulnerable to hacking attacks. Avoid connecting to networks that don't require a WPA key, and consider using a virtual private network (VPN) for added security.

Automate Bill Payments

Take advantage of Rally Credit Union's free automatic bill pay service to ensure your bills are covered while you relax on vacation. Set up automatic payments for peace of mind and avoid late fees.

Back Up Your Data

Before you embark on your journey, make sure to back up all the data on your devices. This simple step can save you from a potential disaster if your device is lost or stolen during your travels.

Be Cautious on Social Media

While it's tempting to share your vacation moments online, refrain from posting details about your trip until you return home. Broadcasting your absence on social media could attract unwanted attention from burglars.

Keep Your Devices Close

Hotel rooms may not be as secure as you think, so take precautions to protect your belongings. Consider using a diversion safe to store valuables, and always keep essential items like passports and wallets on your person.

By following these tips, you can ensure a safe and enjoyable summer getaway. Bon voyage!
