The cyber world is surely not the safest place to be in. There are many creepy creatures that haunt people there. Although, users having an existence in the cyber world, usually, do not recognize that creepiness and often fail to identify those creatures. They believe that they have the exemption that they will not be attacked or consider themselves invincible that they will be hurt by those attacks. Another perception of users is that they are not important enough for horror creatures like hackers to be attacked. And this is their complete misconception. Even social media accounts can lead you towards severe loss, in fact the loss of online identity. Thus, keep yourself secure by using app lock, so that no one can access your logged in accounts, on the other hand take the following measures to save your accounts from hackers.
People do not like to go an extra mile to secure their web accounts. Passwords are the first line defense of any kind of record or an account. And users seem to give no or negligible importance to it. Keeping simple and straight passwords that are the easiest to guess and remember are kept as the passcode. They tend to keep passwords like ‘123456’ or ‘qwerty’ and believes that it will keep burglars away. If they devote a serious thought to this issue, they end up keeping their birthday, name or their pet’s name as the password, which is again a vulnerable practice of setting up a password. A password should be a complex blend of upper and lower case letters along with numbers and special symbols. A password that is not available in a dictionary and an important event or date of your life, seems to be a fine password. Try to keep it as complex as possible and memorize it by linking it to something around you.
Make the most of security features that are offered by social media websites. Such as, Facebook asks the user to name a contact on which they can send their credentials if there is some kind of hack or breach. Similarly, Twitter asks you your mobile number so that they can send you their security code. These features are handy for security, do not treat them as a burden, but, use them to your benefit. Apart from that, keep your privacy firm on the social media accounts, do not make your profile public, just share your posts with your trusted contacts.
Do not keep your accounts logged in, not even in your smartphones. Logged in accounts are like blessing to online crooks. Consequently, log in to your account when you want to access it and logout when you are done with it. Another precious piece of advice that experts give to users is avoid logging in or operating any sort of online account through public WiFi. They are like platforms to these vicious hackers, they make a safe passage for themselves from those public WiFi and get hold of your personal accounts. All in all, practice of accessing web accounts from public WiFi is disastrous.
