Securing the internet is a responsibility we all share, and STOP. THINK. CONNECT. ™ is simple, actionable advice that everyone can follow to be safer and more secure online.
STOP. THINK. CONNECT. ™ was launched in October 2010, with messaging created by an unprecedented coalition of private companies, nonprofits and government and leadership provided by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Anti-Phishing Working Group. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) leads the federal engagement of the campaign. In September 2016, the campaign expanded to include Lock Down Your Login, a STOP. THINK. CONNECT. ™ initiative led by NCSA and the White House to empower Americans to secure their online accounts.
The STOP. THINK. CONNECT. ™ campaign encourages everyone to take security precautions, understand the consequences of their online actions and enjoy the benefits of the internet with more peace of mind.
Follow these STOP. THINK. CONNECT. ™ tips to better protect yourself, your information and the larger digital community:
