How to stay safe online

By: Eastern Eye Staff

The internet is awash with horrific stories of how users have been victims of identity theft, scams, and even physical harm resulting from their online interactions. Careers have been lost, while others have seen their hard-earned money disappear without a trace. Advancements in technology now mean more and more people are able to access the internet with ease. This has resulted in hackers coming up with sophisticated ways to lure unsuspecting users into their trap. The lack of awareness or carelessness into how users use the internet make them easy bait for hackers. However, observing some internet safety guidelines will make your online experience fun, safe, and secure.

Know who you are dealing with

One of the ways hackers are able to lure unsuspecting users is through false pretense. They will make you want to believe that they are genuine, thus able to extract crucial information from you. If you receive a suspicious email, it is advisable not to act on it before verifying if it is legitimate. It is also important to report spam and enable filters on the email program you are using. You should also be wary of the type of information you give out since it will be out there to strangers, who may want to exploit it through identity theft. When visiting websites, it is important to pay attention to its URL. Some websites may use a different domain such as .net instead of .com, or they may use a different variation in spelling. You should also check the security of the website to make sure they have security protocols to ensure the information you are giving is encrypted, safe and secure. If you are not sure about a website, you can look for online reviews to check out if it is legit. For example, if you want to know if a casino such as ComeOn is safe and secure, then you can check it out at a casino review site such as goacasino.best

Be secure

It is important to be proactive, especially on the internet since anyone can be a target for hackers. You should create strong and unique passwords for your various accounts. While it may be tempting to create a single password for your accounts since it is easy to use and remember, a breach in one account can cascade through your others accounts, leaving you further exposed. You should make sure your security protocols are up to date. When using your mobile device, make sure you only download apps from official app stores. It is also important to ensure you have enabled the security software on your mobile device and that it is also up to date. It is highly advisable to back your data just in case something goes wrong. If you suspect suspicious activity or that you have been hacked, it is important to report it straight away to the appropriate authorities for action to be taken. You should also contact your financial institution immediately if you suspect your financial accounts have been compromised.
