Cybercrime is up across Canada – are you and your devices protected?

Thanks to the pandemic, more of us are online now than ever before. This increased online activity also means cybercrime is up, with Canadians collectively losing more than $60 million to phishing attacks, malware, fraud and hacked accounts since the start of the pandemic.

For those of us working remotely, staying entertained with apps and generally spending more time online, protecting our devices is critical. Yet, according to a recent survey, only 18 per cent of Canadians are using online identity theft protection tools.

Fortunately, safeguarding the tablets, phones and computers you and your family are using is easier than you think. While no one can prevent all cybercrime or identity theft, a great option is updating your online security with Telus’ new all-in-one solution that protects devices, online privacy, personal information and more.
