What You Need To Do To Protect Yourself From Website Fraud
It’s becoming too common for cybercriminals to gain unauthorized access to online accounts by using stolen data, including user IDs and passwords. But you can do something about it!
How are user IDs and passwords stolen?
1: Key Logging: This unlawful activity occurs when malicious software infiltrates your computer, captures all key strokes, and sends them to criminally-owned servers.
2: Social Media: Criminals search social media sites (such as Twitter or Facebook) for personal information, and then attempt to use it to defeat website security.
3: Physical Discovery: Shoulder Surfing—This technique involves looking over computer users’ shoulders when they enter their password, or listening for their spoken password.
- Use passwords that are difficult to guess and include special characters, mixed-cased letters, and numbers in combination.
- Use a password on your electronic devices.
- Use the same password for financial sites that you use on social media sites.
- Write down your passwords.
- Offer your user information by phone unless you know and trust the person.
Make sure your device:
- Has up-to-date anti-virus software with automatic updates.
- Uses a supported operating system, such as Windows 10.
- Enables security updates that are installed automatically.
Consider using a separate computer to access your financial websites. Internet browsing can leave you vulnerable to malicious attacks, so limiting activity on the computer where you access sensitive sites will help protect you.
If you share your Portal username and password with another person, this will allow that person to see your confidential medical record information. We have no responsibility concerning any breach of your confidential medical record information due to your sharing or losing your user name or password.

NextGen Patient Portal Frequently Asked Questions for Patients
All Portal usernames must be unique. That means a family of five can use the same email address to signup, but each family member will have a unique login and the signup process would need to be completed five times, once for each family member. The Care Managers will be able to view their Dependent’s portal information without having to log in as the Dependent.
Yes, but this is only possible when the “Care Manager/Dependent” functionality is enabled. A parent, spouse, or guardian can become a “Care Manager” for a “Dependent.” Care Managers can send messages and request information on behalf of a Dependent through their Patient Portal account. Two spouses can be Care Managers for each other, allowing both individuals to access the other’s information.
Depending on how your practice’s portal is set up, you may be able to view statements and make patients. When an electronic copy of a statement uploads to your account, you will receive an email notification indicating a statement is available. Only the latest statement is payable on NextGen Patient Portal.
If you have a pending payment that you cannot pay online, you should contact your provider and request for a new statement. If your statements are overdue, contact the practice to resend the statement.
Documents and lab results are not automatically uploaded to NextGen Patient Portal; they need provider approval prior to upload. You should send your provider a secure message from the NextGen Patient Portal account asking for the status of a recent lab result. When your provider sends you an electronic copy of the lab result, you will receive an email notification indicating a document is available in the Inbox.
