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.

Access your website securely from any location

When you work on the domain, site, blog, or different project that requires constant management, content creation, or coding, you may need to connect to the server and content management service more often. It is a hassle when your website is protected from suspicious connections and unauthorized IP addresses.

The best solution for creating a tighter network could be a dedicated/fixed IP address. If you make your IP address static and set to your device, you can connect to the CMS from any location and do not create any additional issues for server or network manager that need to monitor connections and activities. This is how you bypass some of the authentications factors and can remotely use your banking accounts without triggering suspicious with each login. 

VPN software providers like Private Internet Access can help you with such settings and offer the option to control the online reputation and manage projects easily from any part of the world. It is better to clock the access to your website from different IP addresses. So you can keep the project safe and secure when you have the dedicated IP address VPN and protected access to the content management system.

Backup files for the later use, in case of the malware attack

Computer users can suffer various losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Software issues created by malware or direct data loss due to encryption can lead to problems with your device or permanent damage. When you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work.

It is crucial to create updates to your backups after any changes on the device, so you can get back to the point you were working on when malware changes anything or issues with the device causes data or performance corruption. Rely on such behavior and make file backup your daily or weekly habit.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware occurs out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the system restoring purpose.
