How to Protect Yourself from Hackers

Are you safe from hackers? Nowadays, IoT devices play an essential role in human development, and we also need to secure these IoT devices, so here are some few tips to follow to be safe from hackers

Applications are up-to-date

Make sure that the Applications which you used in your computer or phone are up-to-date because sometimes there is some vulnerability left behind which the attacker or hacker used to access your device easily.

Create a strong password

Make sure that your password is at least 12 characters long, mixed-used of upper and lower case alphabets with numbers and symbols.

Use Multifactor Authentication

Multifactor Authentication is the method in which after entering the password you need to enter a four-digit code that expires after a short interval of time to ensure that you are only the legitimate user for the account.

Turn off everything you don’t need

Hackers take advantage of your open GPS, Bluetooth, and Network connection, so always turn them off when you don’t need it.

Links and Attachments

Always be careful about the links and attachment if you are not sure about the sender or the source

Never use the same passwords again and again
