Hacking has become too common over the internet. People are getting hacked every single day. It can be the social media account, credit cards, bank account information, etc. If you are not aware enough about these things, then you can get hacked easily. Even a young billionaire and Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, got his Facebook account hacked before, so if you think that your 6-digit passcode can keep you safe, then you cannot be more wrong. We are here to share with you some good tips by which you can protect your data from hackers.

Ways You Can Keep Your Data Protected From Hackers: -

1. Update Your Software

This is the best tip you can get. Keep all your software updated. Most hackers just find gaping holes in the current working of the system and use it to their advantage. 

Thus, with every update, the bugs are fixed. Hence, If you want to keep your accounts safe, keep your software updated. This includes your Operating System and web browsers too. Keeping the web browsers updated is a big one here since hackers create fake web pages to steal your credit card information and passwords.

2. Do Not Connect To Any Open Wifi Source

This is one of the most common things hackers use to gain access to your private information. You can find these kinds of open wifi sources in public locations, and once you connect to them, you are screwed. 

The hackers can steal your connection and download illegal files. They can even access your webcam and take your pictures without you knowing.

3. Enable 2-factor Authentication On All Your Accounts

2 Factor authentication is one of the best ways to keep your account secure from hacking. The 2 Factor Authentication enables your account to log in using both the password and a one-time passcode sent to you on the mobile or email. 

It is best to use your mobile number for this as mobile is private and stays with you all the time, so even if someone guesses your password, they will have to provide the one-time passcode sent to you via text on your mobile number.

4. Identity Theft Protection

Identity theft is no joke. Some people are suffering from this every day. You need to be absolutely careful, or your credit card details and account information can be stolen easily. To make sure your account is safe, you might ask for help from authorities like Lexington Law Firm, for they help fight data breaching and identity theft. You can read the review here to know how this firm works.

5. Create Safe Passwords

Create safe and secure passwords for your accounts. A simple 6 digit password is not good enough to keep your account safe. You need to be sure that the password is strong and cannot be guessed. Use upper cases, lower cases alphabets and numeric digits on the password. 

Also, use special characters such as ‘@’, ‘$’ on the password. Here is a good trick you can use; Instead of a word, think of a long sentence you will always remember and take the first character from each word of the sentence to make the password. Replace some of the letters with special characters you can remember such as ‘@’ for A, ‘$’ for S, ‘#’ for H, etc. You can also use a password manager to stay away from the trouble of remembering multiple passwords. 

Conclusion

Now, you have 5 ways by which you can keep your private data safe from hackers over the internet. Following these steps cannot guarantee that you will absolutely stay secure, but it will definitely assure safety from the day to day hacking problems that people encounter. 

Make sure you follow them properly and you will be fine. If you have any other tips you would like to share with us, then post them down on the comment section below. Good luck!
