This year, Safer Internet Day was designated February 11th…but really, every day should be a day to engage in safety practices. From on-line shopping to logging into e-mail to posting on Facebook, your personal information is shooting around the internet, making hackers salivate.

Technology experts from across the country gathered in Washington D.C. to discuss strategies to protect the public. The conversation is ongoing, but there are some actions you can take–right now–to ensure your on-line practices are for your eyes only. In this video, CNET for CBSNews.com correspondent Kara Tsuboi offers several tips.

The tips are simple and take mere seconds to institute:  passcodes on your phone, unique passcodes for different accounts, higher security settings on social media, masked credit cards when shopping online.

Happy internet safety day! Don’t go raw!
