The only two things you can do to secure your account in an online casino is to choose a reputable casino in the first place, and to never save your password in the system. There is much more you can do about securing your computer. It’s important because if any security issue happens on your end, the casino cannot help you.

It’s important to create a Windows user account, so that no one other than you can use the computer because it’s always going to ask for username and password. If it’s a shared computer, everyone can create their own user account. In the Control Panel you go to User Accounts, pick a username and the account type, and create a new account. In addition to that, it’s good to lock your computer every time you’re not using it but don’t switch it off. You push the Windows Key + L when your keyboard is Windows compatible. The Unlock Computer Password pop up will appear. Now no one can access the account without entering the password.

When you use the Internet, you receive a lot of input through emails, downloads and websites. That can mean accidentally downloading suspicious software by clicking buttons that seem innocent. It might include worms, viruses, spyware, adware and other malware. Through these programs other people can spy on you by tracking the websites you visit, recording your keyboard activity (that means every button pushed, including passwords) or even control your computer entirely. To avoid it, you need to install and regularly update a reputable antivirus program. Make sure it scans your computer often. Programs that remove malware, such as Spybot Search and Destroy, are also good to have.
