  - HOW CAN YOU SECURE YOUR COMPUTER

By Guest Author James Mark Church

Working on a desktop requires a birdís view over the passerbyís moves. Such people can take advantage of your password and take away sensitive information. An infiltration requires computer repair from an expert. Input the strong password. Sign in through biometrics, like fingerprints. These are a few tips to secure your computerís access.

Itís going to be another year dedicated to millions of new appsí launch. Again, they will attract you. You will download. Creating login would be your mindset. You canít resist setting their password.

Now, evoke the scenario wherein youíd like to take a ride to diverse apps. The more apps means the more login set ups. Is it possible to recall more than a score of passwords at a time? Except an exceptional brainy, none other can take on their fascinating ride. Bearing all different passwords in mind would be a pain. To get rid of it, you would end up making the simplest choices. Sometimes, those choices are similar and simple.

- Simplest Passwords Attract Hacker:

Hammer your head to determine which passwords remained all time cup of millionsí tea in 2017. Splashdata released that hacking news of more than 5-million passwords. A cursory glance over them identified that most of them were worse. It also released the list of 20 most common passwords.

Catch on the most notorious list of passwords below to brainstorm how much ignorant users are:

  • 123456
  • Password
  • 12345678
  • Qwerty
  • 12345
  • 123456789
  • Letmein
  • 1234567
  • Football
  • Iloveyou
  • Admin
  • Welcome
  • Monkey
  • Login
  • Abc123
  • Starwars
  • 123123
  • Dragon
  • Passw0rd
  • Master

Imagine millions of users select the characters that one can crack in a wink. You would be surprised to know the two most hacked passwords are ď123456Ē and ďpasswordĒ.

- What is a password?

The password is a key to unlock the accessibility of your desktop. Letís say, you go in and out every day to your PC. Since itís a routine, you carelessly input a word that puts no effort to think.

- Result?

Your PC becomes prone to hacking. The cybercriminals grab such golden opportunities have a sneak peek into your sensitive information. Consequently, your bank account & other details become public.

Now, you would have no other way than to call an expert. He would be a local yet the computer repair specialist, as on, Gold Coast (as itís your local address).  It would cause an arm and a leg to get it free from the hacking impact.

- How to Secure Your Computer from Hacking

  1. How to secure your computer with a password: Set a stronger password. You must be smart enough to create a strong key, i.e. a strong password. Itís an ideal mix of alphanumeric and special characters.

For example, sA23@3#

This password is strong enough that none of the hackers can break in. The inclusion of special characters would appear like a puzzle that the cyber spies can assume easily

- Biometrics Controls:

Securing your computer from the hackers with a password is gradually going offbeat. It happened when the biometric controls were introduced in the smartphones. Apple iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, Meizu MX4 Pro and HTC M9+ are a few examples that have integrated these controls.    

You too can upload an app if you donít have this function in your computer. At least, you can heave a sigh of relief from a strangerís access.

- Look up Security Protocol in URL:

The universally accepted security protocol is HTTPs. The big players of the technical world embed this standard in their websitesí urls. It symbolizes the secure user experience and their transactions.

As a preventive measure, you can look it up in the url. You can easily spot them that appear with an initial https://.  With the initial of http://, you can evaluate that the site is insecure. Thereby, it wonít be a wise idea to make any transaction over there.

- Prepare a Set up:

Windows provides some useful options to keep your computerís accessibility under scanner. Bear in mind that the hackers continue to wait for a creak to enter and steal away your details. So, you can minimize those risks by keeping a birdís view over such malicious attempts. These are the settings that can save you from such filthy attempts.

Silence notification: Alerts may consist of some phishing links. Windows shows all alerts by default. But you can cease them.
