- April 7, 2019
In the era of technology, besides enjoying the great achievements we have from it, we should also think about staying safe and protecting our personal information. If you didn't know, many cyber crimes happen among those people that expect it the least. Therefore, I want to help you implement some of the best cybersecurity tips that will keep you safe from harm. Let's see what those are:
- Passwords. Are you rolling your eyes? Thinking:'' Seriously, passwords?'' Yes, I am serious. Many people think about how they know everything about passwords and how their passwords are strong enough to protect them. The truth is, they don't. So, what do you need to know about those? You must create a strong password which contains both letters and numbers. The letters must be both small and big. Also, be sure that you don't use the same password for all accounts. Each account should have its own password. Bonus tip-change your passwords every 3 months.
- Update everything. Do updates bother you? Are you bored by those? Well, you shouldn't be! All the updates that exist are made with a purpose to keep you safe from all those cyber crimes that exist. Be sure that you update everything regularly. The truth is, you don't even need to think about it, everything happens automatically. Just don't postpone it.
- Encrypt. Encrypting your files is a must if you don't want to be a victim of a cybercrime. As simple as that. Be honest with yourself, how much time do you need to encrypt your files? Not much, right? You've got the point.
- Emails. Whenever you get a suspicious email, don't click on anything in it. Many emails coming from the hackers are actually phishing. They just want to steal your information. How to know if it's phishing? Simply, if it looks suspicious, don't click on anything in it.
