Surfing internet nowadays is so common that even from a small kid to an aged man have a Smartphone. But do we ever think that is it safe or not? Actually internet has also its worst side. All stuffs that you upload on internet or even data on your phone are not safe. However, it doesn’t mean that you should not browse internet but always try to be safe from your side. Here are some information which will help you in knowing How to stay safe Online
1. Change your Password regularly
You all have used social sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. These sites are really protected but there are many black hat hackers who can steal your personal information. So, to prevent this, change your passwords on regular basis. Use passwords without any combination e.g. [email protected]/58#. These types of passwords are hard to crack.
2. Download only verified Software
Always be alert while installing any software in your computer/laptop/mobile. There are many software which contain viruses so always download software from a verified site. The software with virus steals your private information.
3. Beware while Chatting with Friends
If you make friends on internet then hang on! Never give internet friends your personal data as you may never know who that person is. So be careful while taking any action online.
4. Never login from unknown links sent by friends/unknown
Do you ever receive any emails from unknown people stating to login to your email/Facebook/Instagram or anything? Then never ever login. Those mails are called phishing emails, they tell you to login by some reason and as soon as you login your password and id will be given to the sender. Isn’t it harmful?
5. Don’t click on Popup
Have you ever clicked on a popup stating that you’ve won one million rupees, click here to claim? These types of popup are fake. They are just scams who also take your personal details, and then later they tell you to pay money to claim! Never ever click on those types of popup.
6. Share limited Personal Data
Always post limited personal data on social sites. Your personal data can be used for various bad activities, and in these activities your name your data will be shown. If ever police catches these activities then police will be behind you. So always be safe.
- DON’T GIVE YOUR PASSWORD TO ANYONE.
- DON’T VISIT ANY UNKNOWN BANKING AND INSURANCE SITES. THESE ARE JUST SCAMS.
- CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD REGULARLY.
STAY SAFE, BEWARE ALWAYS.
