You still do not use secure passwords for your accounts on the internet?
Poor combinations of passwords like “123456” for your internet accounts are a high risk of being hacked. So do not be surprised if Kiddies spy on your mail traffic, chat histories and other accounts on the Internet without great effort. The newly discovered hacker attack on politicians and celebrities in Germany should also shake you up. It was more like a case of Doxing, a gathering of personal information from the Internet. Many Internet users are still extremely careless with their data.
Good protection can be realized without much effort. Protect your devices and accounts on the Internet with secure passwords.
Everything is so easy!
1. use safe and strong, hard to crack passwords.
2. Use two-factor authentication where applicable.
Two-factor authentication is very simple: just enter name and password, you also have to type in a number. This changes every time you log in. The procedure is well-known from online banking. The number is usually via SMS on your mobile phone. If a hacker comes to your password, but he does not manage to get into your mail or social media account. He also needs your cellphone. The two-factor authentication certainly also has its security holes. But you should not omit them altogether. But 2FA is better than nothing.
3. Do not click on links and attachments in unknown mails.
