Strong Passwords

Strong Passwords Always help ! Have you ever had or still have password as 12345, 123, qwerty12345, qwerty, 13579 etc. etc; this is usually the biggest mistake we do with online security.  Keep a password that provides you with good strength and which is easy to remember. 

If you often forget the passwords use Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator app. They will save your time as well as from doing "forgot password" everytime you visit amazon :P .

Apps You Trust!

Only download apps or software from reputed sites such as Apple’s App Store and Google Play Store. Do a secure scan of an app which you have downloaded so that you get notified if there is any malware. Also before you install any app from these stores, always check its reviews, check what message has someone left for you.

Avoid downloading apps from websites. Often hackers take you to some website and request you to download a file from there. Once you download and install on their request, now its your turn to request and regret.

Unknown Calls & Messages!
