Internet security threats and how to protect yourself from them

On the modern Internet, any user, without exception, is in danger of infecting his PC, laptop or smartphone with any malicious software.
The first danger that lies in wait for every Internet user: viruses and theft of personal information. These two Internet “rogues” usually go hand in hand.

If your device has been infected, then theft of information will inevitably follow. Also, the information may simply disappear. The main type of protection against this type of infection will be a good antivirus.

The best free antiviruses for today:

Kaspersky Antivirus
Avast
360 Total Security
Kaspersky Anti-Virus has long been a leader in anti-virus lab tests. It is followed by a simple and fast antivirus from the Czech developer Avast, which has long been loved by many users. Well, for enthusiasts who like to fine-tune everything and keep everything under control, a powerful protective complex from the Chinese 360 ​​Total Security is suitable. But we would not recommend the latter to inexperienced users, as it requires fine-tuning and careful handling.

If financial capabilities allow, then you can use a paid security system with a firewall and additional protection against identity theft.

The best protective complexes recognized:

Kaspersky Total Security
Kaspersky Internet Security
They reliably secure your data from unauthorized access. You should conduct a full scan of your computer for viruses at least once a month.

An additional means of protection will be a good password for mail and other services, which should consist of a set of at least 10 characters, using large, small letters, numbers and other characters. Do not store passwords in the browser, use a password manager (for example, LastPass).

It is not advisable to download any files from unverified sources. Especially often on the Internet you can find ads of some kind of free program. A trojan can even be disguised as a virus protection program. By launching the downloaded file, infected applications may be installed on your computer, which are then not so easy to remove. This applies to all paid programs that can be found on the network for free complete with a trojan.

But it is not even necessary to download the infected file, in order for the virus to enter the computer, just go to the infected site. In order to better protect yourself from viruses spreading on the Internet, use browser protection plugins. Modern antiviruses integrate their protection module into popular browsers, but there are third-party extensions.

The best free browser protection plugins:

NoScript
Scriptblock
Ghostery
Web Of Trust (WOT)
McAfee SiteAdvisor
Another threat is online fraud using social engineering. Often this is due to fast earnings on the Internet, which they promise and ask you to transfer personal data (logins, passwords, card numbers, etc.).

To protect yourself from fraud, do not click on the links in unfamiliar letters. Make it a rule to never open letters from unknown people or sites. If the letter came on behalf of Yandex.Money, Webmoney or any service you know, asking to follow the link, the need to change your personal data, etc., you should never follow the link in this letter. It is better to go to the site directly through your personal account or contact support for clarification.

It is also worth paying attention to social networks, it is desirable to set privacy so that only your friends and relatives have access to your personal data.

Today there are many sites and forums on the Internet about security, but as a rule, users visit them after they have infected a computer with a virus or stole confidential information.
