Cyber Safety Rules

Protecting oneself online is one of the hot topics discussed by the public in recent years, we are often reminded, but do we really know the ways to protect ourselves? Don’t worry, here are some tips for you!

  • Set Strong Passwords.

It is understandable that passwords are hard to memorize especially when we have thousands of apps and websites to log in to, but it is still essential to set different passwords across websites and change them regularly.

  • Use VPN while browsing.

VPN hides your web identity and helps to ensure a safe and secure connection between your device and the internet server so that no one can track and monitor your data.

  • Be careful what you download from the internet.

Make sure you download files from a trusted website, as malware, for instance, ransomware and spyware may be downloaded at the same time you download the file.

People usually have weak awareness of the three tips mentioned above, hope this short article can act as an alarm to remind us all.
