In the year 2017, We were attacked by 2 most dangerous virus called “Ransomware” and “wanna cry” which stolen all our important information, office files, personal data and complicated files. We generally save all our data in cloud services. We need to be very careful while doing this.
Ransomware damage cost $5 Billion. and in other hands, Wanna cry damage cost $4 Billion which is a huge loss to humans.
How to get rid of this problem:
There are many ways for hackers to access our data. If we still ignore this, we may fall for another virus attack. It’s time to take steps to our safety. We have many sources to get rid of this problem in future. Let’s have a look at some softwares which helps us to get rid of this problem.
This is a very secure browser. It works with the help of Firefox. It’s not easy for hackers to get information where did it get from. If we send mail to the other end, that mail will be connected to several servers and then reach to the destiny. This makes difficult for hackers to track the information. This is how Tor browser looks like. Click on Tor Browser to download and install.
Nowadays it’s easy to find Wi-Fi services everywhere. Office, Railway station, restaurant, parks, shopping malls etc.. It’s not safe to use these free services without any security. Because 20% of mobiles and PC’s are hacked who used free internet services. For this, install Cyberghost VPN on your system/Laptop. For mobiles, we have opera VPN. Cyberghost VPN Service has 6 option which is very useful. This allows you to do,
- Anonymous surf
- Unblock Streaming
- Protect my wifi connection
- Torrent Anonymously
- Unblock basic websites
- Choose my VPN Service
We are not sure whether website gives us exact information or not but website takes some of our information for sure. If we want to know what information that website took from us, we need to install Ghostery software on our system. Click on the ghost icon to know about it. We can delete unnecessary information by using this software.
Hackers are so intelligent that they can even track that what we are typing on our system/laptop keyboard. Hackers are now getting everything ready for the new type of ransomware to attack in this format. for not letting them know what we are typing, we need to encrypt the data. For this, we have KeyScramble to encrypt our data.
Hackers can access our laptop/system camera by using advertising Ids without our permission. This happens when we don’t have perfect security for our system. For this kind of problems, we have Anti Spy software specially designed for Windows 10 Operating system. This software will keep an eye on our activities we are doing in the system. This disables, Smart screen filtering, Advertising Id, and other few things.
We use a different kind of code languages for some confidential things. Nothing wrong with it. But sometimes we fail to convey the same through technology because hackers can crack any kind of code language that we use. For this, we need to communicate through encrypted data. Install GnuPG in your system and encrypt your emails and important files. To decode this, the other end needs the decrypted code. If you know the other end user you can give the decrypted code to them.
We heard about, facebook messenger, WhatsApp, wechat, line and other messaging apps. But all these apps are not secure and can be hacked easily. Nowadays WhatsApp is taking care for an end to end encryption. But you know what? Signal Messenger is completely secured messaging app which is not easy to hack. This app has an end to end encryption, VOIP Phone Calls, Read Request and other good features in it.
Wise Folder Hider:
We have much software in the app store to hide files but none of these works properly when they get attacked. But Wise Folder Hider is something different for all other software. this is the best place to hide your important files, documents, images, and videos. Set password and hide all your files.
We generally use the browser, instant messaging, emails etc.. if we need to protect them we need to full-time family pack which cost more. but Tails software will protect them for free with good protection. this software includes Browser, instant messaging, emails, office apps etc. Though it’s a long process to install, it works great,
It’s time to install all these software and get protected. See you in next Tech Update
