  • Always Download Mobile apps or computer software from trusted sites. Ex:-In mobile phones it is always recommended that always download your apps from play store or in Computers download apps from its Official Website of that particular software. Although google play isn't 100 percent safe from malware. It is safer than downloading from unofficial website. If you are interested to download any particular third party software(Software which are not available on play store) then download it from the official site. 
  • Never Visit any unknown website or Never give your Personal details  in these sites like email id, Phone Number, Credit card details etc. The site which you think that it is a genuine website it may be a phishing site. Which is like a trap for you.

Now one question comes in everybody mind that how to know that which website is genuine and which is fake so don't worry it is very simple to identify.
  • You have to always check that there is a lock symbol present there in the URL bar if it is present then it is a genuine website otherwise if you will see a exclamation mark inside a triangle or circle then it is a fake or unsecure web site.
  • One more important thing is that in secure website when you will click on the URL tab you will see that  https//:  is written over there. Or in Fake website when you click on the URL tab you will see that http//: is written over there. The reason behind this is no SSL(Secure sockets Layer) certificates are required for http//: and for https//: it is required that you have an SSL certificate and it is signed by a CA.
  • Never click on Unknown and unsecure links these are somehow connected to a phishing site. which tells you that you have won 10,00,000 Rs and something like that or you have won a car. Where the hacker or scammer demand for your details like name, DOB, Phone number, credit card details. After filling out all the details by you he easily make fool of you and went away.
Now one question comes in everybody mind that How to know that which link is safe and which one is unsafe? It is also Very simple to know that which link is valid.

2.Social Media

  • Always Use Two factor authentication. It is highly recommended by security experts because it adds an extra layer of protection to your social Media account.
  • Never use your social media accounts in multiple device. Let us take an example if you are using your social media account in your friend mobile phones. And you and your friend  don't know that there is a malware present in your friend mobile phone. Then without your knowledge silently malware takes all your data like contact details, Photos, Browser History. After that What? by using this Data, hackers Blackmail you. So think once before using your social media account in other device.

Or if you are using your account in other device and forget to log out your account from that device then do this:-

1.Go to setting option

2.After clicking on setting option, Go to security and login option and click there
3.Inside that at the top you will see that Facebook shows you all the logs of your accounts on see more option and you will get like this on log out of all sessions then you are safe.

Same process are applied on mobile phones 
  • Don't share So many things on the Social Media. Because Sharing too many things on social media it is easy for hackers to find out the easiest way how they can easily hack you. so stop sharing so much things on social media. If you have less things are there on the social media then it is difficult for hackers to gain information about you.
  • Never click on Unknown and unsecure links these are somehow connected to a phishing site. Where the hacker or scammer demand for your details like name, DOB, Phone number, credit card details. After filling out all the details by you he easily make fool of you and went away. Avoid these types of Links as much as possible.
  • Use Strong Password and different password in every social media account. It is impossible for hackers to guess your password. Use combination of numbers, special symbols, uppercase and lowercase in your password.
