    Keep safe online this tax time with these helpful tips:

    • Use multi-factor authentication where possible and don’t share your password with anyone. Using SMS codes as your sign-in option for myGov is a quick and secure way to sign-in to access our online services.
    • Regularly review staff accesses and immediately cancel AUSkey access for anyone who shouldn’t have one.
    • Keep your devices up-to-date by installing the latest security updates, run regular anti-virus scans and use a spam filter on your email accounts.
    • Monitor your accounts for unusual activity or transactions and immediately contact your bank or other organisation as soon as you notice anything unusual or incorrect.
    • Exercise caution when downloading attachments or clicking links in emails, text messages or social media posts, even if they appear to come from someone you know.
