In the past 10 or 15 years, we’ve seen so many malicious software, leaked emails, hacked emails, hacked smartphones, and everything else related to internet security. To be fair, our web security is much better than it was say 15 years ago. There was a time we used the dial-up connection, and that was probably one of the most secure connections.
Nowadays, we live in an era of wireless networks, social networks, and much more. All the advancement in technology has made our live easier. However, it has also made our live less secure. Our internet connection is at constant risk, and we have to be extremely careful not to hit on some virus or other malicious software.
So, with that being said, what can you do to protect yourself? Just saying be careful will not cut it anymore. There are things you absolutely cannot do online. Here are some ways you can make sure your internet connection is secured:
- Do not trust open Wi-Fi
- Choosing simple passwords
- Using only one password
- Being careless with login credentials
- Letting everyone know you are not home
- Email address in a comment
- Reveal your phone number
- Do not sync your social media accounts
- Links in emails
- Social media settings
