It’s no reason to feel helpless. You can make yourself less of an easy target for hackers, money-hunting phishers and overly aggressive marketers by bolstering your security and data privacy. I’ll show you how to do it in an hour or less.
The steps needed to reduce your chances of becoming “Hacker Bait” are simple and in some ways just common sense. However it is amazing how many people do not take even these simple precautions. The fact is you can not guarantee that you will never be hacked just as you cannot guarantee you will never have your hose burglarized. However what you can do is make it harder. If you have a deadbolt, and alarm and bars on the windows the burglar is more likely to pass and look for an easier home to break into down the street. Don’t be easy.
