How To Protect Yourself On The Internet

I wanna blog about this topic because people's behavior on the World Wide Web is changing and it is not what it used to be. Advances in technology is supposed to be good for people so they can be more productive with their lives, and yet, this same technology put many people's lives in danger because there are some unscrupulous people out there who are using the technology to take advantage of other people's online vulnerabilities. There are far too many scams online nowadays that prey on susceptible users. It is undoubtedly never bad to critique and be very skeptic about something that we see or read on the internet. Cyber crooks today are using social engineering schemes in order to trick you to give up your personal information, visit a suspicious site, or clicking a malicious link. To protect ourselves and our computers from outside threats, we have to be wise about the places we visit online, how we act there, and where things come from. We must be very aware of social engineering attacks such as phishing, baiting to click on suspicious links or prompting to download suspect software which are very tricky tactics that is nearly impossible to protect against even with a sophisticated computer security software or hardware. Let us not forget to use our own common sense to better protect ourselves and our computers with any kinds of attacks from the cyberspace. Always update your computer with the latest patches, antivirus softwares and antimalware products for your peace of mind and total protection on the world wide web.
