Top 19 Technical and Experimental Ways to Avoid Yourself From Hacking
From a technical point of view, it’s possible to say that any device connected to the Internet has the ability to hack.
There are statisticians who can secure this situation to a high degree.
Do not open anonymous to prevent phishing attacks. You can use online sites to validate emails if needed.
Like this site http://www.iptrackeronline.com, just email the contents (you can see the contents of the original show and the show with full header) and click on the Email header analysis button and the submit header foranalysis button.
Or, for the sake of confidence, click on the show original button in the ip address. To do this, click on the small arrow above the email and select show original to see the header information.
You can also email the search engine to get information about its ip.
2. Do not use sites that do not use https-based security protocols, because these sites are very secure.
3. Never open anonymous attachments. Hackers can easily migrate malware to the system unless they are sure of the file.
4. Do not let anyone deny your privacy. Avoid publishing private photos and information in the virtual world.
5. Do not use vpn There are methods that hackers can use to speed up their data usage.
6-Use of two-step authentication in applications that make it hard or impossible to hack an account or user panel (it has the ability to have programs like telegrams, etc.)
7. It is very important to use advanced password for accounts and user panels.
8. Do not use wifi wireless networks because they will be very unsafe to try to use the home wifi system more.
9. The use of strong antivirus and regular updates is important because it detects the errors of previous versions and new viruses that are generated.
Activate the 10-firewall and add the suspicious file to the blocked list.
11-The operation of the operating system is another important point because it eliminates security errors and security issues in the next revisions.
12. Non-use of apps and programs outside valid sources, because some of these programs contain malicious code that causes system issues. They also have spyware information from the system information.
13. Encrypt sensitive information on the hard drive or the hard drive. It’s hard to access information when the hacker penetrates the system.
14. Turn off the WiFi and the busy places in the cell, because without you knowing that there is a lot of information about it. It’s best to set it in safe mode or hide it from others.
15. Look out for keyloggers. Keylogger is a spyware program installed on your system without you knowing whether it is sending information to another person, or if it is installed on a friend or someone else’s system and you want to log into your personal account in that way.
16. Clear browser cookies. Their professional people are out of date and use their useful information.
18-Do not log in to your chat room. You may have a Trojan hidden behind the image or file and you will be shown the hacker by downloading it.
19. Another issue is social engineering, which hackers trust the other party’s sensitive information.
Protecting Computers and Laptops
- Make sure your security software is up-to-date. Devices’ operating systems and Internet-connected software (like email programs, web browsers, and music players) should be updated regularly. Your computer will typically notify you when a software update is available.
- Install antivirus and antimalware software. If you do not have security software, install a firewall and antivirus software and keep them up-to-date. There are a variety of reputable products available for free or that have a free trial period. These programs help identify the latest threats and allow a user to remove malicious software from their device. Do your research before installing any program and beware of scams that attempt to lure you into disclosing your personal information or that direct you to download programs that may contain malware.
- Disable connections when you aren’t using them. If your computer uses Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to connect to the Internet and other devices, you should turn these features off when you aren’t using them. This can prevent unknown persons from using your network or accessing your devices without your knowledge.
Protecting Cell Phones
- Create a strong PIN or passcode. If your device is lost or stolen, a strong passcode may prevent a thief from accessing all the information stored on your phone. Many smartphones also allow you to remotely wipe the information from your computer in the event of loss or theft.
- Only install trusted applications. Some criminals make available applications (or “apps”) that look and function like legitimate apps, but actually install malware to your smartphone. Be sure to download apps only from trusted sources, and check the number of downloads and read reviews to makes sure you aren’t downloading a “look-alike” app.
- Keep your software up-to-date. Smartphone manufacturers and app developers regularly release software updates that often include security improvements. Check often to ensure that your smartphone has the most up-to-date software.
Protecting Other Internet-Connected Devices
As mentioned above, Internet-connected televisions and appliances are now available in the marketplace. These devices, as well as the router that connects your home to the Internet, are also vulnerable to attack. It is important to protect these devices just like computers and smartphones.
- Review your network and device names. Is your cell phone or home network named using your last name or other personally identifying information? This can make your device more vulnerable to attack, since it connects the device to you and makes it easier for hackers to guess your password.
You should change the name of your devices and network so hackers cannot identify you so easily.
- Create unique passwords for all devices. When you purchase a new device, it often comes with a simple, default password. Many people set up unique passwords for their computer or phone, but neglect to do so for their Internet router or other smart device. Unknown to the user, hackers can easily gain access to these devices, and use them to flood websites with so much traffic the site goes down or hack into your network. If, for example, your “smart” kitchen stove is connected to the Internet and has a simple password, a hacker could use the stove to access your wireless network and hack your computer or phone. When you get a new Internet-connected device, you should be sure to create a strong, unique password for it.
Protecting Online Accounts
- Delete suspicious emails. It is best to delete spam or dubious-looking emails without opening them. If you receive a questionable email from a friend or family member, it is best to contact that person and verify he or she sent it before opening the email or clicking on a link or attachment.
- Use secure devices. If possible, only access online accounts from your personal computer, tablet, or smartphone while using a secured Internet connection. Try to limit accessing personal accounts from public computers that could be infected with spyware or malware, or may use an unsecured Internet connection. If you do use public computers, be sure to log out when you are finish. In general, it is more secure to use a smartphone’s cellular data network than a public or unsecured Internet connection.
- Create strong passwords. To reduce the chances of your online accounts being hacked, change your passwords frequently. Strong passwords are at least 12 characters long, include numbers, letters, special characters (&,!,?, etc.), and are not too predictable. For example, don’t use your name or date of birth for your password or common words like “password.” If you have multiple online accounts, it is best to have a different password for each account. In the event that one of your accounts is hacked, having different passwords for your other accounts reduces the likelihood of those accounts being accessed too.
Use multifactor authentication on your accounts. Multifactor authentication works like this: When you enter your password for your email account, for example, you are directed to a page that asks for a four-digit code. Your email provider then sends a unique, temporary code in a text message or to another email account. You must enter the code, which expires after a short amount of time, to access your account. This means that hackers who obtained your password still can’t access your account unless they also have access to that verification code, adding another layer of protection. Many email providers, social media websites, and financial institutions now make it easy for users to set up multifactor authentication on their accounts.
- Be cautious with “Save my information for next time.” Many websites now store personal banking or credit card information to make it easier for you to buy a product or to pay a bill in the future. Although convenient, if your account is hacked, your payment information is more easily available to hackers. Ensure any website where you enter your financial information is secure (the website’s URL should start with “https://”—remember that the “s” is for “secure”), that your password is unique to that account, and that you log out once you are done.
- Sign up for account alerts. Many email providers and social media websites allow users to sign up for an email or text alert when your account is accessed from a new device or unusual location. These email or text alerts can quickly notify you when an unauthorized person accesses your account and can help minimize the amount of time an unauthorized user has access to your information. If you receive such an alert, login to your account immediately and change the password. Check these emails closely, however, since malicious “phishing” emails often mimic these kinds of alerts.
If Your Device or Online Accounts are Hacked
- Have devices inspected. If your computer or other device is hack, disconnect it from the Internet and have it look at and repair by a trustful specialist. Be cautious when calling telephone numbers for technical support specialists that you find online. Scam artists sometimes set up authentic-looking websites that may appear to be affiliated with your computer’s manufacturer. When consumers call these entities, they are often telling they must pay hundreds of dollars for their computer to be fix, or the “technician” installs other viruses onto the computer that steal information or cause more problems. It is often best to take the device to a physical repair shop, rather than trying to find a technician online.
If you call a technician online, be sure to research the company and its phone number to be sure it is legitimate.
- Change your passwords. After getting a device repairing or clean of viruses, you should change all the passwords for any accounts you access using the device. The malicious software that was remove from your computer may have transmit your passwords to an attacker, granting the hacker easy access to your information. Similarly, if one of your online accounts has been hack, be sure to change your password immediately. A hacker may also change your password, denying you access to the account. If you are unable to access your account, contact the website directly and it can assist you in restoring your account.
- Monitor financial accounts. If a hacked account contains financial information, contact your bank or credit card company immediately, letting it know that your account may be compromised. Your bank or credit card company may issue you a new card or account number. Be sure to monitor activity on the account for any fraudulent transactions. In some cases, hackers may have obtained your information, but will not use it right away. If you are not issue a new card or account number, you should monitor your account for an extend period.
Notify others. When appropriate, contact your friends and family and make them aware your device or account has been hacked. Hackers may try to gain access to your email contact list, and send emails from your account.
Notifying friends and family that your account has been hack,
and instructing them not to open urgent or strange emails,
“click” on suspicious links, or download attachments that seem to come from you may help protect their accounts from hackers.
- Watch out for other users. People often are not immediately aware that their email or social media accounts have been hacked. In fact,
- many people only learn of the problem when friends or family contact them
- about a suspicious email or message from their account. If something doesn’t seem right about a person’s email or social media account,
- it is possible the account was hack. Do not respond to any emails or messages you receive,
- but contact your friend or family member directly and tell them about the problem.
