Safety is the state of being "safe" (from French sauf), the condition of being protected from harm or other non-desirable outcomes. Safety tips is the tips on how you can apply on your daily doing to avoid from being victim of cybercrime. Here’s a few thing on how and when you can do it when you are on the situation.
There’s have a lot of safety tips that we had found from our research. From itnewsafrica website, there have a few tips to prevent cybercrime. First, a secure computer will deter cybercriminals. That’s mean you need to activate your firewall or antivirus to protect your computer from various virus like Trojan, malware and any else. Other than that you may regularly updating computer. While keep the computer up-to-date it doesn’t mean that will protect you from all attacks but at least it can be more difficult for the hackers to hack your computer. For example, for iPhone user there will notify you when there’s have a new iOS update available to your phone so than that the advantage to update your software to keep you to keep safe online.
Next, you need to be social media savvy. Social media savvy is you need to follow what trending now or you need be up-to-date person. But, all your private information, contact number or else be on private mode. It’s just to make sure all your private data safe and there’s no misuse from the irresponsible person. You better watch out what you want and will post. Once it is on the internet, it’s hard to remove it. Be careful guys! Secure your mobile devices. Use password or download a GPS application on it. For the iPhone users, you need to connect your Apple ID with your iTunes, if your phone is on lost mode then you can find it later. Please don’t put your pin number, passwords or your own private information on your mobile devices it might be dangerous if your phone are on the stranger’s hand.
Furthermore, protect your own data. Use encryption for your most sensitive files and always make a back-up for all your important data and stored it in different storage or location. While using the public Wi-Fi hotspots please be aware of what will you do while using this hotspot and avoid from access your personal data or corporate public transaction on the network. It’s just to make sure there’s no misuse of your own data. We doesn’t know whether the public Wi-Fi is safe or not. Since the high cost of living so they will do anything just to make sure that they have some money to survive. For example, when you are using the McDonald free Wi-Fi there’s have a login ID to log in the Wi-Fi.
PayPal and websites like it act as intermediate to online vendors. Anyone who has ever forgotten their PayPal password knows how many security hurdles you have to jump through and it’s serious about the security. If you don’t want to use PayPal or are buying from a vendor that doesn’t accept it stick to using a single credit card. This isolates your risk to one account and if you pick one with the good security features you’ll be alerted as soon as something bad happens. For example, every transaction that you used need a transaction numbers that send towards your phone number that have been registered under the card name.
Nowadays, we are exposed with online shopping like LAZADA, Fashion Valet, and others more. Make sure the websites are secured while using or you’ve enables privacy settings. Please be cautions while giving out your personal information to others. Always think or just ignore before click the pop-up link or file of unknown origin. You didn’t know where the sources from and maybe it can be scammer. Never reply the emails that ask you verify your personal data especially the bank card numbers. When in doubt, verify the sources or call the right person to help. Report to the local police if you encounter illegal Internet content or if you suspect such as computer crime. If you need help with maintenance or software update on your computer consult with a professional and certified technicians.
Otherwise, the identity of online crimes can be revealed if you can trace once after your data is stolen or when the first use of information attempted. So, the tips that you can do is you may review your online banking history or credit card statements regularly provided the bank. Other than that, there’s bank that will call you once you use the bank card. They will make a check with you whether you had spent some money using the bank card and they will give you a details to make a confirmation. Please don’t take this call lightly since they are the one who protecting your bank card from fraud or misuse. For example, when you are busy while shopping than you didn’t notice that your bank card dropped out somewhere and someone are using your card but then the officer of the bank call you to make a confirmation so you know that there’s someone are using your card than you may trace who are using the card. So, the user may be arrest as soon as you make a confirmation.
Furthermore, report any suspicious activity. Prompt and detailed reporting of suspicious activities can help prevent violent crimes or terrorist attacks. If you see suspicious activity, please report it to your local police department. Local law enforcement officers can respond quickly. Asked for the security procedures and asking question about sensitive information such as building blueprints or security plans. For example, if you going out alone and was followed by others, please make a report for your protection since they can robbed you to get your personal data like credit card to generate cash.
Prevention is always better than cure. It is always better to take precaution while operating the net. Capacity of human mind is profound. It is not possible to eliminate cybercrime from the cyberspace. It is quite possible to check them. History is the witness that no legislation has succeeded in totally eliminating crime from the globe. The only possible step is to make people aware of their rights and duties and to guard ourselves so that crime has no effect on us. Last but not least, don’t let yourself be targeted by criminal. Take care yourself in whatever you do and whenever you are!
