Le vol d'identité

Tuesday, September 20, 2022 Dernière modification le Wednesday, September 21, 2022

Depuis quelques années, nos habitudes de consommation ont grandement changé. Nous créons de nombreux profils en ligne sur des sites plus ou moins sécurisés avec des mots de passe plus ou moins sécuritaires, au grand plaisir des hackers qui cherchent à obtenir nos informations personnelles.

Le vol d’identité en trois étapes

Ainsi, un fraudeur cherchera à obtenir à partir de votre compte Facebook des informations comme votre date de naissance et le nom de votre mère, puis votre adresse ou numéro de téléphone ailleurs, en accédant par exemple à votre compte Amazon ou à Gmail, si le mot de passe est facile. Avec ces informations, il accède ensuite à des sites sécuritaires, le gros lot étant le compte bancaire. De là, il peut prendre le contrôle de vos mots de passe et s’approprier votre identité.

Se protéger du vol d’identité

Mieux vaut prévenir que guérir. Aujourd’hui, le point d’accès le plus facile pour les hackers est le wi-fi public. Cette connexion n’est souvent pas sécurisée comme l’est l’Internet à votre domicile ou votre réseau cellulaire. Il faut donc éviter d’accéder à des sites sécurisés comme celui de votre banque lorsque vous êtes sur un réseau public.

Changer vos mots de passe régulièrement. Choisissez des mots de passe d’au moins huit caractères qui comprennent des symboles, des chiffres et des majuscules. Assurez-vous de faire des mises à jour régulières de sécurité sur votre ordinateur avec un logiciel anti-virus performant. Masquez vos informations personnelles sur les réseaux sociaux.

Et si on me vole mon identité ?

Contactez immédiatement votre institution bancaire, votre assureur et la police. Ces intervenants vous expliqueront la démarche à suivre. Pour remplacer vos cartes d’identification, consultez un agent au 1 800 O-Canada. Enfin, communiquez avec le Centre anti-fraude du Canada au 1-888-495-8501.

Il sera plus difficile de reprendre le contrôle de votre courrier électronique ou de vos réseaux sociaux. Avisez rapidement le plus d’amis possible de la situation, et demandez-leur d’ignorer tout message provenant de ces comptes.
