This has has also been the year of identity theft nobody is safe. Simple rule any strange request from a bank or vendor or delivery service wanting to verify your data is an immediate delete.

Is your router older than five years get a new one. Router are also updated with the latest firmware updates that prevent malware from entering your system.
