10 Tips on Protecting Your Mail and Computer

Use antivirus software for the computer, I use Avast which has a free version that does the job, and of course, there is other software such as Norton.

Don’t open emails from people you don’t know, even if you’ve opened and there is a link to download something – don’t click, not sure the antivirus software will detect it and it’s a shame.

On Facebook:

-Don’t approve friend requests from people you don’t know before you sign in to their profile, look at someone legitimately (photos, family posts, etc.).

-Do not click on links that friends have sent if it looks suspicious – they may have broken into an account and sent an automatic virus to all members.

Unique password –

Do not use the Facebook password for other accounts on the Internet.
You have surfed from a public computer (computers in hotels, internet cafes, etc.) – be sure to disconnect from your email there, and from any website you have registered there.

Plus, are you surfing from someone else’s computer? When logging in to a site with login information, the browser always asks whether to save the information in memory, by saving time at the next login. Isn’t this your computer? Do not confirm saving information.

Strong passwords –

Your date of birth or phone number is not a strong password, any hacker will start, try this combination, use a combination of letters and numbers, as long as possible.

Unique password –

Do not use the same password twice, any other password site, register sites, and passwords – Print on paper and keep in a safe place, so even if you broke into the computer – the password table will not fall into them.

Security Updates –

Be sure to update your computer each time a computer updates a security update.

Your cellphone –

through which you enter your email, bank, and social networks, all your important information is there – keep your device in your bag or at least in your front pocket, tapping the thieves.

Additional cellular protection –

be sure to use a central lock with a password. Use protection software such as “Lockout” (available on Android and iPhone) which is used as an antivirus and also allows the phone to be detected if stolen.
