Secure passwords for all of your devices and accounts on the Internet.
Still not using strong passwords for your online accounts?
Bad combinations of passwords like “1234567” for your internet accounts are at high risk of being hacked. So don’t be surprised if kiddies can easily spy on your email traffic, chat history and other accounts on the Internet. The hacker attack on politicians and celebrities in Germany that has just been uncovered should shake you up too. It was more of a case of doxing, gathering personal data from the Internet. Many users on the Internet are still extremely careless with their data.
Here is my tip:
Good protection can be implemented 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: instead of just entering your name and password, you also have to enter a number. This changes with every login. The procedure is well known from online banking. The number is usually sent to your cell phone via SMS. If a hacker gets your password, he does not yet manage to get into your email or social media account. He also needs your cell phone. Two-factor authentication certainly also has its security gaps. But they shouldn’t be left out entirely. But 2FA is better than nothing.
3. Do not click on links and attachments in unknown mail.
