How To Avoid Having Your Computer Hacked

Yes, that’s correct, as demonstrated in the below video. 47 seconds is all it takes for a hacker to access a computer. Most people don’t realize how vulnerable their computers are to hackers who want to access and steal their personal information.  Something as simple as a weak password, not properly updating your computer, or using an unsecured internet connection can leave your computer open to people looking to take your info. Once a hacker has access to your computer there are a number of things they can do. They can access your banking info, emails or social media by using a keylogger software. They can take screenshots or photos of you using your webcam and more. We’ve provided a list of ways you can make yourself as secure as possible when online.

If you’re a Windows 7 or 8 user you have likely been receiving a number of popups over the last months and year to upgrade your operating system for free to Windows 10. Microsoft had said they would provide the upgrade for free for one year with the last day to do it will be July 29th, 2016. If you haven’t already upgraded to Windows 10, now is the time to take advantage of the free offer. If you wish to stay on Windows 7 or 8, that is fine too, but you will be paying for the Windows 10 license if you do decide to upgrade after July 29th.
