Technology is everywhere today. We all use computers, smartphones, and tablets, and we need to connect our devices to the internet to get the most out of them. However, connecting to the internet opens your device up to thousands of security threats each day. Identity thieves prey upon the unsuspecting to collect names, addresses, birthdates, social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, and credit card numbers to make purchases and take out lines of credit in other people’s names. The days when these people go sifting through garbage to steal identities are long gone; they use modern techniques through the internet to obtain confidential information. They infect your computer with viruses and spyware, and the next time you go to make a purchase or create an online account, these programs covertly send them all the information they need to steal your identity.
It’s not just identity thieves you need to worry about but also companies like Google, Yahoo!, and Microsoft that encourage you to install their free software so that they can collect information about your internet habits without your permission for advertisement and research purposes. These programs are not only a threat to your identity and privacy, but they also dramatically slow your computer down. Whenever you use your computer, these programs collect and transmit data in the background, robbing you of computer speed. Good antivirus software is a great place to start but is only a first line of defense, and when you do get a virus on your computer, it’s imperative to remove it immediately.
