It might seem that if you do “nothing of importance” online and have “nothing to hide”, hackers will leave you alone. But that’s simply not true! You don’t have to have your own VPS or run a company from your home to have something hackers want.
Making your passwords complicated and difficult to guess is important (use a trusted password vault if you struggle to remember them!), but so is using a VPN when accessing secure content, only clicking on links that you know are safe, and never giving your personal information out to anyone, ever. These things might sound like common sense solutions, but when you’re in a situation that you don’t know, you may be surprised at how you react.
Even if you have nothing to hide, staying safe online is vitally important. There are few things worse than the headache of dealing with identity theft or stolen data.
