Featured article by Phil Collins

The possibilities of scammers of all stripes and directions on the Internet have reached unprecedented proportions. They steal everything that is poorly protected, break into banks, launch clever viruses. However, there are also such sites as PlayAmo, which are completely safe for users.

However, do not despair and be afraid of every site.

Below are simple methods and rules that will make life on the Internet more reliable, wherever you go.

How Do I Protect My Accounts?

Since a lot of things are now stored and managed on the Internet in modern life, it is incredibly important to protect your most important accounts.

The first thing you need to do to protect your accounts is to create a strong password.

Also, if possible, enable two-factor authentication.

It may be a little inconvenient for you, but it is a serious obstacle for those who stole your password.

The most effective way to protect your account is to use the security settings of each service, which allow you to detect an unknown computer that has tried to log into one of your accounts.

– How Google protects personal data

Check the devices and applications connecting to your account the ability to delete all devices unknown to you, probably belonging to intruders.

– How Apple Tracks a New Device connected to your Apple ID

Apple takes a different approach than Google, focusing on hardware and online applications. To get started, log in to the Apple ID website. The most important change you can make here is to enable two-factor authentication, it works similarly to Google technology: when you log in on a new device, you will need your Apple ID, your password, and a code sent to an already registered device (for example, a MacBook or iPhone).

– MICROSOFT Account Security Settings

Microsoft offers similar security options like Google and Apple, including options to view your active devices and configure two-step authentication.

You need to go to the Microsoft account page. After logging in with your username and password, you will see all computers and other hardware associated with your Microsoft account under the heading “Devices”, and clicking any of the entries allows you to delete it.

– Ways to protect your FACEBOOK account

There are many ways to protect your account on the world’s largest social network, they are located on the “Security” tab on the “Facebook Settings” page.

You can see where and on which devices you are logged in, and receive notifications of logins on unfamiliar devices.

Unfortunately, nothing can make you 100% safe online, so don’t twitch. New security vulnerabilities are discovered all the time, and you can’t always do anything about them. You just need to be vigilant and try to minimize the risk as much as possible.

Monitoring of Phone Applications Is Necessary

Do you know what your apps do?

As a rule, applications request access the first time they are opened after installation. But you, without noticing it yourself, can inadvertently allow applications to perform actions that reveal your privacy.

To control them, you should regularly check the access rights of your application.

As an added bonus, you should know that the fewer apps running in the background, the more your phone saves battery power.

Check What Facebook Knows About You

Facebook wants to know everything about you.

With over two billion active users, Facebook can follow almost a third of the world’s population.

Facebook uses your personal information mainly to show the most suitable ads for you.

A quick way to check what exactly Facebook knows about you, as well as restrict access to them, is through the ad settings page.

If you really want to stop the flow of your personal information on Facebook, it’s best to delete your account.
