             Use Encrypted Messengers

            You should try to avoid avoid holding prolonged conversations via email. Use secure messengers.

               Use a VPN to stay safe

              A secure & trusted VPN provider will keep your actual home IP address hidden to prevent websites from storing it.

                 Backup your data securely

                It's always a good idea to very often backup your computer & online data to a secure cloud storage provider.

                   Be smart on the internet

                  Before clicking a link, sharing info, or registering an account for a site, verify that the site/source is trustworthy.
