We have some good news for you. When it comes to protecting your family, your money, and your privacy, there is one handy device that will do it all. At Komando.com, we tell you about the real dangers we've faced over the years.
However, this scary news is now being made for TV news networks, newspapers, and websites. You see the titles "ransomware," "hackers," "scam," "ID theft," and many more. Imagine there's a massive breach of device data in the latest news. It was scary, given the fact that at least 143 million people had their personal information compromised.
But it was far from the only danger. We tell you about IRS scams that cost you millions of dollars just like you. Ransomware has been attacked, thus giving off life-saving medical devices. This is all very scary. However, you can use tricks to easily set up some cybercrime to prevent the bad effects on your life.
We'll show you how to set it up, so your favorite sites like Facebook, Google, and your bank account are secure. All you need to set up this security system is a smartphone and a few minutes.
Why You Should Always Turn on Security Setting:
You must have heard of two-factor automation. Sometimes it is called two-step verification certification or two-stage. If you have, make sure you use it on all the websites you visit.
If you haven't heard of two-factor authentication or don't remember what it is. This will save you money and stay away from hackers and cybercriminals. This means you use two steps to protect yourself instead of using steps like a password. The second step is usually a code sent to your smartphone or your home phone - something the hacker can't reach.
Do you check your bank balance online? What about your credit card?
If so, you may have used two-factor authentication. Enter using your password. Again, you receive a message from your bank or whatever site you use. If they have this file, they will often automatically call or send your smartphone and give you a secret code. This is a good security solution. Simple and effective. Why? Hackers don't have their smartphones. So, when the bank calls you, you know you get an extra layer of security.
Facebook Two-Factor Authentication:
Hackers and scammers love Facebook. With almost 2 billion users connected, it is a victimized treasure trove of funds to steal. You think it's great. But unfortunately, the day's creator stole money and ID on Facebook.
It could be an old friend, or there could be a possibility of love for someone to be there. It could be a fake website that claims to have free air tickets or similar. You have to defend yourself from the social media giants. Fortunately, Facebook has made it very easy to set up Factor Automation.
What you have to do here: Click the down arrow to the right of your name >> Select Security and Login at the top of your screen >> Scroll down to Access Automation Factor >> Edit >> How you want to use the method. Method: You can send your automated automotive code to Facebook in several ways, including text messages.
Google Two-Step Verification:
It looks like you use google for every job. Even when you don't realize it, you enter your Google Account.
You can buy plane tickets with your Google account. You can also register for a new online account.
To use Google, enter your account and register for two-step verification. Here's how to explain this extra Google security layer: Everything you know in secret codes sent to you on your smartphone, your passwords, etc.
Install an Antivirus and Keep It Updated:
We call this type of software antivirus, but that's only a small part of what they do to prevent actual computer viruses. Ransomware encrypts your files and demands payment to recover them. Trojan horse programs look like legitimate programs, but they steal your personal information behind the scenes. The bot turns your computer into a soldier in a zombie army, ready to engage in attacks, spam, or any number of bot header orders—effective antivirus blocks this and many other types of malware.
In theory, you could set and forget about your antivirus protection; it could hummugate in the background, download updates, etc. In practice, you should check it from time to time. Most antivirus utilities display banners or green icons when all is in place. If you open a utility and see yellow or red, follow the instructions to revert.
You may be wondering, wait, what does antivirus do in Windows? Not only does Microsoft Windows Defender Protection Center come baked into the operating system, it automatically detects the protection it needs when it doesn't detect other antiviruses. It automatically separates when you install third-party protections. It happens. The problem is that this built-in antivirus doesn't compare with the best third-party solutions. Even the best free ones are better than Windows Defender.
Whether you choose Simple Antivirus or Full Security Suite, you have to update it every year. Your best bet is to register in an automatic update. With some security products, do it; malware-free guarantees are activated. If you are quick to switch to a different product, you can automatically opt-out later.
One more thing if your antivirus or security settings don't have security protection, consider adding a different layer of protection. Many specialized software utilities are completely free, so there's no reason not to try a few of them and choose the one you like best.
