How to be more secured online (the best practice)

Internet is no man home; anyone can go online irrespective of whom they are. Good ones connect as well as the bad ones. We all have different reasons of going online, you may be online to educate yourself or even to connect with family and friends while someone else is online watching, and finding ways to destroy your joy, finding ways to hi-jack your accounts and credit cards. Too bad! Techgetto don’t want such to happen to you because we love you, and you are the reason why we wrote this post. Please read our other post on how to have a secured online transaction.

Staying secured online should be your number one priority because your privacy matters. You receive unwanted emails from scammers because your email address was leaked. How? You gave it out even without knowing. Yes! Sometimes, some websites request for your email address to send you some freebies, but wait!  Do you know how secured that website is?  Does the freebie really worth giving out your personal data? In most cases, they don’t. Some website owners, after collecting your data, they will sell them to God knows who! Could be anyone. And then you start receiving tons of email from campaigns you know nothing about.  Please be careful! Now you are informed.



Things you must do to be secured online

1. Use strong password

Some websites that really care about your privacy will always insist you choose a very strong password. They are not trying to inconvenience you in any way, they are only trying to put your account on a save side. So, why not follow instructions?
Using cheap and easy to guess passwords will only put your account in the risk of being hacked!  Avoid using passwords like “yourname123” or “your_birthdateabc” … think of a strong password instead. Combination of alphabets, figures and symbols would be just fine!

2. Don’t forget to log-out

It is a good idea to always log out your account anytime you login from a shared or public computer. Yes! It is very necessary you do because you don’t know who has monitoring you. When a bad guy your info. He can go extra miles to get them. He don’t mind following you secretly to any where you go until he gets what he want.

Assuming you are in a cyber cafĂ© and the guy beside you is the bad guy. He spy at your password but couldn’t get that because of the strength of your password, now you are done checking your mail for instance, shot down the browser without logging out your email. This bad guy can login with your account, and if he commits any crime with it, you will be jailed for what you did not do. Please be smart! Erase cookies and history if possible.

3. Mind how you  connect  to open networks

[post_ads_2]

Someone will surely get upset here! I mean free wifi is what everyone love..  but  mind you, as far as it is open, it is public. So many people are on the network with you, you don’t know who the other client is. I strongly advise that you use open networks only when you search for information with search engines.  DO NOT EVEN TRY TO CARRY ON ANY TRANSACTION  INVOLVING YOUR CREDIT CARD OR BANK INFORMATION ON AN OPEN NETWORK. It is never a good practice! Use a secured VPN anytime you connect to an open network.

4. Turn on two factor authentication

Apart from having  a strong password, if there is an option, please do turn on  two-factor authentication for it helps to keep your online account secured.

This is how it works:


After signing in to your account, the server will send an authentication code  in sms format to your phone  and ask you to type the code on the space provided for it. This process cant be skipped, your account can’t be accessed without the correct code.

5. Clear browser’s cache

When you logout your account on a shared computer, it is also necessary to clear the cache of your browser. This cache can tell something about your home address, family information and personal data. So do not underestimate how much it knows about you.
