Watch out for phishing scams.
Phishing scams use fraudulent emails and websites to trick users into disclosing private accounts or login information. Do not click on links or open any attachments or pop-up screens from sources you are unfamiliar with. Always make sure that you are contacted from the official domain. www.hivemarkets.io for Hive Markets.
Secure your internet connection.
Always protect your home wireless network with a password. In addition, when connecting to public Wi-Fi networks, be cautious about what information you send over it.
Set strong passwords.
Avoiding your devices from becoming hacked requires the use of long, firm, and secure passwords. Thus, a password that is tricky to figure makes it prohibitively hard for hackers to break into a machine and will (hopefully) force them to look for another target.
Be careful what you download.
A top goal of cybercriminals is to trick you into downloading malware programs or apps that carry malware or try to steal information. Do not click or download anything from unverified sources.
Keep your computers and mobile devices up to date.
Having the latest security software, web browser, and operating system are the best defenses against viruses, malware, and other online threats.
Check the website's security connection.
A padlock in the URL indicates a safe and secure website, whereas an "Unsecure" error will indicate that a website may be fraudulent.
