Three Simple Ways to Help Protect Your Online Files
1. Disable You’re Bluetooth When Not in Use.
“There are actually ways to infiltrate phones/tablet through idle Bluetooth. While these attacks aren’t typically devastating, they can expose some data to unwanted visitors.”
2. System Updates Should be Scheduled Weekly
Proceed into the seldom used Windows Update Control Panel and apply them all. There's a reason why the updates are done, and they are usually to prevent exploits.”
3. Reboot Your Computer at Least Once a Week
“Users tend to leave their computers on for weeks (or months) at a time. While OS updates will sometimes reboot computers overnight, relying on updates for reboots is not smart and will often occur only once per month or less. Rebooting removes temp files that may have sensitive data; for example, that PDF bank statement you downloaded that was automatically saved to a temp directory. Plus, rebooting will clear the memory and ensure any security updates waiting on a reboot get deployed.”
