Technical support of the devices you use
- Ensure that the operating system you use and individual types of software products are as up-to-date as possible. Usually, operating systems and software products available on the market have the option to set up automatic updates. Use this option and always set up your devices to automatically update. If by any chance the operating system and software products installed on your device do not have the option to automatically update, then you can search for the latest versions of them yourself to download and install them. In such case, you should only download the current versions from their manufacturers’ websites. Never download operating systems and software products from messages received via your email or in chat communications with you. Such messages are sent by malicious persons and the request to update operating systems and software products specified in them is fake and intended to access your personal data through malware. By using up-to-date and licensed operating system and software products, you minimize the risk of your personal data being obtained and used by malicious persons;
- Install a firewall on the device that you use to access your various accounts. The function of firewalls is to protect you from malicious persons while you are on the Internet and they can be set up to notify you of attempted attacks by such persons;
- Install a secure and licensed antivirus program developed by an established manufacturer on your device. Its function is to protect your device against various types of viruses through which malicious third parties seek to gain remote access and control over the device you use;
- Do not install or use ‘cracked’ programs downloaded from torrent websites, because this poses a great risk to the security of your device and the data you store on it or enter through it. ‘Cracked’ programs have compromised security and can be used to install malware and Trojan horses on your device;
- Please note that, at this time, Windows XP is not supported by its manufacturer, so we advise you to take action to install an up-to-date operating system to ensure your level of security. We would also like to inform you that the latest version of one of the most widely used operating systems is Windows 11.
