Keeping Your Computer Safe When Gambling OnlineBy: Joe Valentino, Thursday July 18th 2013

When you gamble online, one thing that you don't want to gamble with is the security of your personal information and financial details. There are a number of things that you can do for yourself when playing at online casinos to help protect your identity from being stolen and to protect your accounts from being hacked. While some basic Internet safety guidelines can be followed, there are some specific guidelines that you should follow especially when you gamble online on a regular basis. Here we're going to give you some guidelines to follow to help protect your security.
The very first thing that you need to do is create an email address just for your online casino accounts. The point of this is that if someone hacks into your regular email address, which will be more well-known, then they could immediately discover your casino accounts and go from there. However, if you have a special email address that is only used for your online casino play, then it will be very hard to find out about it, and that means it will be much less likely that someone will be able to use it against you in an attack on your information.
The password to that email address should be different than any other password that you use for anything else. Aside from that, your usernames and passwords at different online casinos should all be different. The point of using different usernames is that if someone finds your username at one online casino, they could immediately begin an attack on your accounts at other online casinos if it's the same. However, by keeping them different, an opening against one account will not automatically mean an opening against your other accounts.
Finally, make sure that you scan your system for viruses and keyloggers at least once a week and that you change your passwords to at least your main accounts at least once a month. If you go a long time without making a deposit, you might want to consider de-activating your account. Just make sure that you make it clear that you want to be able to open it in the future, and you'll be in good shape. The idea here is that if someone logs into your account without your knowledge, you'll be alerted via email that your account has been re-activated. This will tip you off that you need to change your password or close your account.
