Do important work on your own device.
Do not do important work on another’s device like where you have to give your important credential. Try to use your own device when you do important work and always alert when anybody access your device remotely.
Make your application update.
When your application run out of date, make it up to date. When you use old version of application there might be some weakness on the application through which an attacker can compromise your device or do harm to you.
If you use supported application it will improve your device speed and performance and when you use some unsupported application so you must use some antivirus application to prevent from malicious attack.
Always try to use latest version of application and set your device to update application automatically when new updates will come.
Always update your anti-virus.
Make sure you are updating your antivirus otherwise small version of virus or malware can affect your device and lost your data.
Password should be strong.
Make sure whatever password your using should not be guess. It should be best if you use alpha numeric otherwise try to use some random value on your password. Try not to use your name, pet’s name or guessable from your social networking site.
And try to use separate password for each and every site if any way attacker find/guess your password from one site, then he can’t use this password on to other site.
Avoid suspicious email and attachment links.
Now a day’s email is the best way to build relation in corporate as well as personal so attacker can send malicious link and attachment to you, and when you click on that that link moves you to some malicious site, so it’s better to delete that email and don’t open any attachment.
Think before clicking any link.
When you are getting link to click so be aware about the sender and then proceed otherwise it may do harm on your device in different way.
Back up your data before affect.
All ways try to store your data on cloud or any physical server because if the attacker not only steal but also some times they encrypt your data which is not readable format. So further you can restore your data.
