Some Things You Should Avoid Online

These days, its hard to find someone who isn’t on any social media… even the old ones are still flexing on social media like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and many more…. Despite these improvements, there are thing you shouldn’t do online, some of us are guilty of it and it is important we correct it. Now let’s see…

.


>> Using Weak Password:  Most of us are guilty of using weak password and we start complaining that our  email, Facebook  has been hacked.  Am just wondering how one  can you use 123456 as your password or 7654321… This can make any dummy easily guess your password and hack into your account. Even using your date of birth as password is not correct.  Mostly, a good password should comprises of Letters, numbers symbols etc… e.g M4_09!... Let your password be strong enough that no demon on earth will be able to guess it.

>> Using one Password:                  
Note that “using one password”  is different from ” using weak password”  I agree that not many people can’t  remember all of their passwords. So they find one good, strong password that they use for absolutely everything.  It is absolutely wrong to use the same password for your Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, email etc. You need to have more than one password. In fact, you need at least three to five different passwords that you use for different internet accounts.

>> Storing Your Login Details on Public Computers or Personal Computers: Some of us still make use of the Cafe and even store our login details on the used browser which is absolutely not right. Even storing your login details on your own personal computer is not right because somehow, someday someone might have access to it.


>>Links in Email: Criminals love clickable links in emails. They absolutely love them. Yes, they are a good idea in theory. But sometimes, theory and real life do not work in the same way. Clicking on a link in your email might take you to a website with malicious software.   do not even download any attachment you don’t know anything in your email, they can use it to hack into your account.

>> Displaying your email Address in a comment: I have stopped this long ago and ensure that every email that has ever been published on this blog was deleted. Never leave your email address on any blog post, Facebook or any platform that exposes it to the public, it is not safe.


Am sure you all understand this, well I know some people might have one or two questions to ask, if you have any question to ask, drop it in the COMMENT BOX and we will reply it quickly..
