The dangers of the Internet - Avoid this

Dernière mise à jour : 1 sept. 2021

We must be careful when using the internet, like we are on the street. Many predators roam the web looking for vulnerable people. This is why, it is important to know the dangers of the Internet.

Internet popularization has increased the opportunities for evil-minded people. Computer hacking causes victims both in large institutions and individuals.

Antivirus to avoid the dangers of the Internet

One of the first rules to avoid falling into those traps is getting an antivirus to stop intrusions on your computer. A virus never gets on your computer without a human action.

The hacker (the person who wishes to harm you digitally) will push you to take action to install the virus yourself. That is why it’s not recommended to click on an unknown link coming from a suspicious website or e-mail.

Hackers also use emails to send as attachment, a file that is apparently harmless but contains malicious software called virus or malware.

The virus will install itself without your knowledge; it may be a “Trojan horse” that will which will allow the hacker to access your device remotely.
