The internet is having a massive expansion as we wrote this line, and will continue its growing exponentially. Many things we own from wearables and phones through cameras, TVs, or cars and home alarm systems are interconnected over the internet.
Forming a new cyber ecosystem making the name of the Internet of Me more close to reality than the one we use now: Internet of Things because it incorporates more sensitive and personal data every day.
Because of this our cybersecurity team wants to offer you, valuable information about how to keep your data and devices secure for better privacy.
Always keep track of your data you share from new devices that you own when you do shopping online. It is best always to review what and who uses the information you share before you go online for shopping.
To have a better understanding let's do the following test:
From your smartphone, open Google and search "buy an iPhone."
Then open your Facebook app and scroll into your News Feeds.
You will notice ads showing you from where to buy an iPhone.
How is that possible? Simple. The Facebook app is scanning your browsing history to show you commercials.
Once you managed to keep track and secure the data you share, it is a good idea to research about the vendor of the device that you own, making sure that the vendor keeps your data secured and safe.
Never answer to cold calls or complete any obscure surveys online. This can lead to further evasive actions done by the cybercriminals.
Always use your credit card data in safe and official places. For example, if you receive a too good to be real offer about a product that you want, it is better to check official vendor site to see if the offer is genuine.
Free is good only from official stores and markets. Don't download any apps or software offered for free on unknown and obscure places over the internet.
This kind of apps or software are most of the time altered or fake, and they contain malicious code making them malware that hackers use in devious ways. This type of apps can be easily detected and removed by a top antivirus that is a must in every system and device that you own nowadays.
