Also, you should not use date of birth, telephone numbers, and any other data that links you directly, because you could be a victim of a cybercrime.

So you know, never post personal information on any social network, because not only you are vulnerable, but also your family.


  • Visit trusted sites


Try to browse and download information from trustworthy sites, otherwise malicious content may take over your stored data. At this point, he considers that most reliable Web sites use a URL with HTTPS since both the Hypertext Transfer Protocol and the Secure Sockets Layer prevent information from being intercepted by a cybercriminal, encoding passwords and vulnerable information that will allow reaching the servers safely.

Using the public network connection also makes you vulnerable to information theft, avoid its use or read the terms and conditions before agreeing to connect to it.


  • Never leave sessions open


If you are one of those who leaves the session of their social networks or email open, what do you think? It's not such a good idea, we recommend you keep them closed once you stop using them, and it's also important that you clean your browser's cache, as it stores everything you visit on the Web.
