World Password Day we’ve prepared a list of security tips for you to create secure passwords. Additionally, it might be good to mention: “Password” isn’t a good password and you never ever ever ever should share your passwords with anyone – under no circumstances. No service will ever ask you about your password, neither online nor via phone.
Prevent malware from getting on your computer and keep the following tips in mind:
What goes for your operating system is also true for your browsers (and every other program on your PC): Patch at least the security updates when released.
For your online activities you never should use an administrator account. There are manuals explaining how to set up an account with limited user rights: Windows | Mac OS X | Linux | Linux Ubuntu.
Your precious data can be damaged or lost really fast. A backup makes sure that if worst comes to worst you can recover it.
These tips don’t cover everything. But if you heed the advice given in this article you already secure most of your online activities. What further tips do you have? We’re looking forward to your feedback in the comments!
