Give your new device the gift of security

5 ways to secure your new device

Security first, selfie later

1. Back up your data

Then make a backup of that backup. Backing up your data makes it possible to recover your data even if your house burns down. (Because sometimes your house really does burn down, and sometimes you are hit by encrypting ransomware.)

2. Be smart with passwords

Use a diverse set of unique passwords to prevent cybercriminals from using one compromised password to access several of your services at once. Additionally, you should activate two-factor authentication whenever it’s made available.

3. Stay untracked with a VPN

Using a VPN, your actual IP address is hidden from the services you visit. Not even your internet service provider can see what you do online. Even on unsecured public WiFi, your traffic is encrypted and impossible to intercept.

4. Set up remote location

Whether your device was stolen or simply lost, you can track, lock, and even wipe it remotely. The sooner you get around to setting up these features, the better — don’t wait until your device has been misplaced to start thinking about its security.

5. Install an internet security suite

Making use of a trusted internet security suite means that you stay protected from viruses, trojans and ransomware at all times. You can also handle your online shopping, banking and all other surfing without worries.
