If you don’t know it just let somebody you teach you. The earlier you learn to check your payslip by yourself, the safer it will be for you in managing your E-payslip account.

2. If anybody would have to check it for you, let it be a trusted person. Make it a point to always keep your log in details very confidential and secret. Anytime you expose your log in details to anybody, you put yourself at risk of data theft and unauthorized access to your account. You need to take personal responsibility for your account as you will be the victim and loser when any harm is caused.

3. Anytime you check your payslip on somebody’s phone or computer, remember to log out before handing over to the owner or leaving the scene. As far as internet browsers are concerned, the last site or page you visited is likely to show in your next search. The site and link can equally be found in the browser history. Therefore, if possible clear the link from the browser history immediately after you are done with whatever you have to do on the site or page.

4. Desist from writing your staff ID and password for anyone to go and print your payslip for you. However, if this becomes necessary the safest thing you should do is to change your password immediately. By doing so, nobody can have unauthorized access to your account with your old password.
