23 Sep Simple Tips to Secure Your Data!
It’s probably easy for you to identify people who could gain physical access to your computer, tablets, phones, and other digital devices. It could be family members, roommates, co-workers, members of a cleaning crew, and others.
But identifying the people who could gain remote access to your devices are much more difficult.
As long as you have a device that connects to a network or the Internet, you are vulnerable to someone or something accessing your information.
Luckily, you can develop habits that make it far more difficult. Here are just some:
Lock or log-off your devices
This means having a strong password. Developing a strong password is easy. Insure it has 25 characters or more – I know – sounds crazy but here is an example: IHateRadicalTerrorism!!!!
Pick random words or phrases that don’t relate to you and exceed 24 characters.
Disconnect your devices from the Internet when you aren’t using it.
Convenience comes with risks. Attackers or viruses scanning networks are always lurking and waiting to exploit your information. Disconnect when your not using them.
Shield your devices when they are sitting idle. Escape the Wolf provides patented shielded pouches for phones and tablets, briefcases, messenger bags and backpacks that prevent remote access all the time.
Our Zero Trace products provide a “water tight” seal around your devices and prevent all adversaries from gaining remote access to your valuable data. This will also prevent tracking of your devices and shut down cheater apps.
Evaluate Your Security Settings
It is important to examine your devices and apps settings, especially the security and privacy settings, and select options that meet your security requirements.
Always Reevaluate After Updates
Always check your settings after OS and application updates and insure they are set where you want them, not where “they” program them.
