How to Protect Yourself From Online Art Scams
As an artist, having an online art presence is essential — not just for selling work, but for creating relationships with other artists, clients, and partners that will benefit your art career.
It’s important to be online, but with more of our careers happening on our phones and laptops, our accounts have also become an attractive place for criminals. Between scams, phishing, art image theft, computer viruses, trolls, and fraud, there are a number of potentially dangerous traps to watch out for as you bring more of your art career online.
Even if you’re a tech wizard, it’s always worth double-checking how you’re interacting online. Here are a few simple things you can do to protect your art business.
Create complex passwords enable two-factor authentication
It may sound basic, but having strong passwords is one of the easiest ways to be safe online. Use different passwords and make sure to include a mix of letters, numbers, and symbols in your passwords.
For any website that you attach any personal information or payment information, you should make sure to have a secure password. However, you should vary your passwords and avoid “password recycling” which makes it easier for hackers to test your passwords against banking and other sites.
In addition to creating strong passwords, you should also enable two-factor authentication where you can. Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an additional layer of security you can add to online accounts by adding a second credential, like a code sent to your phone number, to verify your identity.
