Data breaches, internet frauds and scams are not new to us. In the current era, every now and then we hear about such news and feel digital life is not at all safe. As it continues, instead of taking suitable steps to mitigate cyberattacks, common people often blame antivirus security features. One should understand that no software can keep a tab on human activities. Normally, antivirus software is designed to blockknown malware, viruses and trojans.
In order to keep ourselves safe against cyberthreats, we need to change the way we are using our gadgets. Most of us are showing ignorance towards scanning external devices, click third-party links out of curiosity, and leave all our personal details on social media as if there is no tomorrow. How many of us know that this online behavior can create problems? It is nothing but an ignorance towards cyber security and social media safety. Another major example of this ignorance is lack of knowledge about strong passwords and password managers. When was the last time you changed your password? Are you the one who keepsthe same passwordfor all your accounts? What if someone steals your password of one account? Since you keep the same password to all accounts, everything will be compromised.
Keeping strong passwords, not clicking on third-party links and refraining yourself from leaving personal details online is a basic cyber hygiene, which every internet user must follow. Following a good cyber hygiene protects you from potential cyberthreats.
