2. Legitimate Software
Don’t ever run a bootleg version of your software. Many computers are affected because of this issue. Always buy your software from a licensed retailer and check for updates.
3. Pop-up blocker
The pop- up blocker will block potentially dangerous ads from appearing. It can work in many ways, such as closing the window before it appears, disabling the command, or altering the window’s source HTML. Google Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge include pop-up blockers.
4. Leave websites that redirect you
If a website redirects you to another page without your consent, leave it immediately. In addition, don’t download or open anything from this website.
5. Don’t click on links from emails you don’t know
If you open your Gmail account you can see that some emails were directly received in your Spam. These were the emails considered fraudulent by your email provider. However, some of them are not recognized as spam and can cause you huge headaches. Therefore, delete unsolicited emails from unfamiliar sources and never open the attachments.
6. External drive
It’s important to always do a backup in order to protect your files from a malware. Pass all your files to an external drive or a remote storage service.
