(Before It's News)

Roulette is a fun game that can take hours out of your day. It’s even better when played online, at the comfort of your own home. Perhaps because Roulette’s nature is fun that some folks who play online games forget to think about the proper ways of securing themselves online. Here we’ve outlined the different methods you can take to secure your online privacy and identity. But if you’re more interested about playing online roulette, click here to learn more.

Update Your Firewall and Antivirus
One of the first things you can do is to secure your PC/device. Install and update your anti-spyware, anti-malware, and antivirus. Also, ake sure that you play on a secure wi-fi connection as well. If you’re just using free wi-fi, then you might want to have a VPN enabled on your gadget or laptop. Some people choose to use a Proxifier instead. It’s completely up to you, There are free VPNs and Proxifiers available but if you want a secure playing experience without sacrificing speed, then you might want to look into paid VPN providers.

Beware of Cheats or Free Tricks

If you meet a fellow online who says that he or she can increase your chances of winning or they can help you by giving you a few tips and tricks, be on the lookout for malicious behavior. Some of these people are only looking for ways to fraudulently access your credit card or PayPal information. If a fellow player is asking for any of your personal information(that may or may be related to the game), then don’t give it. Try to avoid further interaction and whatever you do, don’t add them on Facebook!

Play On Secure Websites

Websites that don’t offer their players enough security are a big no-no. Just check if the website is secure or not by checking if their site is encrypted. Some websites are simply fraudulent and only want to secure your personal information. So this may put a damper on your playing mood but verifying a website’s reputation through a quick Google search could help you play on free, yet secure online roulette websites in the long run.

Don’t Use Your Real Name

Just as an extra precaution, don’t use your real name as your username. Some people don’t think it’s necessary but it’s a good protective measure against identity theft.

Use Your Email Address Wisely

Some gamers use a separate email address for registering on online gaming websites. This may or may not be extreme but at the end of the day, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Along with carefully using your email address (especially if it’s connected to a credit card or PayPal account), you should also be careful when it comes to using passwords. If you’re forgetful, using Safari as your browser of choice can be a good thing. After all, it can remember all your passwords if you let it to. But if you’re on Chrome, download a LastPass extension so you can use complicated passwords but you don’t need to remember any of it.
