4 Quick Tips — How to Protect Yourself Online
How to Protect Yourself Online
Internet users can protect themselves from cybercrime with the following quick tips:
• Only download mobile apps from official app stores, such as iTunes and the Android Market, and read user reviews before downloading them.
• Be extra vigilant when reviewing and responding to emails. (I call this “use paranoid common sense”.)
• Watch out for too-good-to-be-true offers on social networks, like free airline tickets. Never agree to reveal your personal information just to participate in a promotion. (Or get a free magazine subscription..)
• Don’t accept requests on social networks from people you don’t know in real life. Wait to post pictures and comments about your vacation until you’ve already returned home.
I am not sure I agree with the order McAfee chose to put these in.. but I assure you this is good information here.
