No matter how old we are everyone needs to be careful on the internet. There are many dangerous tools criminals can use to hack into your accounts and more. But there are still some best practices that you and your family can follow to help ensure they are safer, not only while on Google but also while navigating the wider Internet.

They include:
* Using unique passwords for your accounts (and a new password checkup tool)
* Keeping your software up-to-date
* Setting up a recovery phone number or email address and updating it
* Adding 2-step verification for further protection
* How to talk with children early about online safety and setting digital ground rules in your household
