Technology and security experts advise computer users and smartphones to take a few steps to help protect their devices against intrusions and spyware.
One of the most important things that users should focus on to protect their devices is not to open anonymous links that can be sent to them or found on the Internet, many of which may be fake links containing malicious software to penetrate electronic accounts and devices.
Experts also prefer not to use Wi-Fi networks in cafes and public places, and generally exploit such networks to penetrate their users' devices.
It is also important to protect electronic devices from hackers, download antivirus software and constantly check for software updates.
It is always preferable to buy electronic devices produced by large, well-known companies that use microprocessors and technology-based chips to protect the device from intrusion, as well as device protection experts and software and software failure detection that hackers can exploit.
Experts also recommend the use of passwords, or fingerprint scanner, to protect your computer or smartphone and data from hackers, or those who can use software and viruses to hack your device.
They also emphasize the need to use very complex passwords to access electronic accounts, using letters and numbers, and not rely on logical or easy passwords (123456), which makes it easier for hackers to go through an electronic account, control and theft of data.
To make sure the password is safe enough, Internet experts recommend using some private sites, such as howsecureismypassword.net, where there is a special field where the user enters the password they want to use to show how safe the word is. Hackers need to decrypt them.
