Today’s internet alleys have the security equivalent of the Amazonian jungle. It all looks green and healthy, but behind the foliage lurk incredible dangers. While it is highly improbable that you get poisoned or killed simply from online browsing, there is a good chance that your online profile falls victim to the army of hackers set out to kill personal accounts. This is why you need to know how to share links over the internet and to keep your intimacy impenetrable in the process. Here are a few tips that will help you on this matter:
Swap widgets for virtual drives
Most internet users share tens of links with other online consumers on a daily basis. Whether you want for your friend to see a funny cat video, or for your business partner to check the latest activity report, you share a small bit of personal information with every link you send. Most people do this through instant messaging, emailing or other social media widgets, all of which are very susceptible to hacker attacks.
The first thing to do is to limit the amount of material you share online, whether it is on social media or through your email account. Instead, use highly secure virtual drives with limited access and where your senders can view and edit the material you share according to your instructions.
Protect data from internet bots
An intuitive hacker can determine a lot about your online activity or your personal preferences just from monitoring your online sharing habits. If you regularly provide your friends and partners with financial data you become a target for these internet thieves. Before you know it, your entire bank account is emptied and you have no way of tracing the culprits.
Your best choice is to store the data you need to send on a highly secured webpage where the download process implies passing a test tailored to rule out any hacking attempts from internet bots.
