Yes. Keep your user name and password secret. The other person should also have their own user name and password. Always log out when you've finished browsing a website, especially if you're on a shared computer.

While email is useful, it can also have risks. Phishing is a fraudulent practice of sending emails pretending to be from organisations you already know such as your bank or payment card company, insurance company, a government department or a business. These emails will look ‘real’. But they are designed to obtain your personal information or to infect your device with a virus.
If something's too good to be true, it probably is. Not everything you read in an email is true or trustworthy.
Recognising a phishing email
You can learn to spot common things that give scam emails away, such as:
Genuine companies, financial services providers and government bodies make a big effort to keep their emails accurate and professional looking. Any of the mistakes above are clues that the email is from a nuisance or fraudulent source.
How to protect yourself
Protecting your data is a top priority for Standard Life. To do this we use a multi-layered approach to protect customers, staff and business information. This is known as defence in depth and consists of multiple technical controls, business processes and staff training. Information security policies and procedures are the foundation of our security, these are augmented with technical best practice to protect your data at all times.
Smartphones and tablets have freed us to go online anywhere there is a 3G or 4G signal, Wi-Fi router or public hotspot. For many people, these mobile devices are rapidly taking over from computers for email, social networking, gaming, shopping and banking. This makes them a prime target for criminals, so it's essential to take mobile security precautions.
There are now thousands of social networking sites on the internet. The best known include Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. They are a great way to stay in touch with friends and relatives and can connect people right across the world. But there are risks and even serious dangers in sharing your personal information on social networks.
You may not have direct control over who can see your profile or posts, even if you have been careful with security settings. They could be seen by friends of your friends that you don't know, and their friends, and so on.
Information you put on social networking sites can help fraudsters guess your passwords and answers to secret questions like your mother's maiden name, pet's name or your first school. They could also find out when you are away on holiday (leaving your home empty), or where your family members are at a given time.
Another major risk in social networking sites is clicking on links which seem genuine or enticing, but can lead to bogus pages or other websites designed to defraud you or compromise your identity.
