Tips to avoid being scammed online

Video streaming services have been booming since the time our internet connections became fast enough and hardware that provides access to hundreds of thousands of videos became capable of holding so much data. Some streaming sites are free (such as YouTube) – they earn revenue from ads, and also allow content creators to upload videos. However, when it comes to hosting copyright material, rules are completely different.

In general, downloading or streaming content that is otherwise paid for is not legal, and multiple websites have been shut down and owners prosecuted by authorities. Illegal video sharing is also notorious for malware distribution, as shady sites often fail to implement adequate security measures and allow unknown users to upload files or sell ads pace to cybercriminals.

In most recent years, video streaming has also been used by malicious actors that promise free content allegedly for free. As soon as users try to watch the video, they are asked to provide their credit card details, however (reasons for such actions may vary, but crooks always are trying to sound reasonable). Thus, NEVER provide your credit card details or any other personal information on fake streaming sites.

Instead, opt for legitimate services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and many others – the fee is relatively low, and you will get access to thousands of videos, without being exposed to online risks like malware or fraud.

How to prevent from getting adware

Protect your privacy – employ a VPN

There are several ways how to make your online time more private – you can access an incognito tab. However, there is no secret that even in this mode, you are tracked for advertising purposes. There is a way to add an extra layer of protection and create a completely anonymous web browsing practice with the help of Private Internet Access VPN. This software reroutes traffic through different servers, thus leaving your IP address and geolocation in disguise. Besides, it is based on a strict no-log policy, meaning that no data will be recorded, leaked, and available for both first and third parties. The combination of a secure web browser and Private Internet Access VPN will let you browse the Internet without a feeling of being spied or targeted by criminals. 

No backups? No problem. Use a data recovery tool

If you wonder how data loss can occur, you should not look any further for answers – human errors, malware attacks, hardware failures, power cuts, natural disasters, or even simple negligence. In some cases, lost files are extremely important, and many straight out panic when such an unfortunate course of events happen. Due to this, you should always ensure that you prepare proper data backups on a regular basis.

If you were caught by surprise and did not have any backups to restore your files from, not everything is lost. Data Recovery Pro is one of the leading file recovery solutions you can find on the market – it is likely to restore even lost emails or data located on an external device.
