Hundreds of Macs, iPhones and iPads were Hijacked Today, These 3 Simple Steps Will Protect Your Аccount

Keeping personal computers secure and healthy should top everyone’s priority list. Recently, a number of Apple devices belonging to users in Australia, including iPhones, iPads, and Macbooks, were hijacked by a hacker who threatened to erase all data unless users sent him US$100 to unlock the devices. Computer hacking can happen in various ways. The following steps will help you safeguard your computer and prevent you from becoming vulnerable to hacking.

Create unique passwords

Passwords for multiple services should be unique and hard to guess. If a hacker gains one password it is very likely he will try to apply it to other services you are using. Avoid dates of birth or recognizable words, and use more meaningless passwords that combine letters, numbers, and symbols.

 

Enable two factor authentication

The two factor authentication is a feature that requires more than just the password. It may require, for example, an initial password to be supplemented by a second that is sent to a user’s phone. While not every web site provides this security option, many commonly used services like Gmail, Twitter, Facebook, Apple, Dropbox, and Paypal have implemented this feature.

Set up a passcode or Touch ID for the iOS devices

The passcode on your iPhone, iPad or iTouch is an important feature that will help you protect your devices. Every time one of your devices is turned on, this security measure asks for your passcode before you start using it. Alternatively, the Touch ID requires a fingerprint as a passcode.
