Some tips to pre­vent cy­ber crime from hap­pen­ing: Re­mem­ber not to dis­close any per­sonal in­for­ma­tion on so­cial me­dia; do not ac­cept or send a friend re­quest to any per­son you don’t know. Up­date your de­vice con­tin­u­ously; change your pass­words of­ten; make sure to have an eight digit pass­word; in­stall an­ti­spy­ware/ad­ware pro­grams/firewall; delete emails from un­known sources. Be aware of spam emails that re­quests you to trans­fer money to a bank ac­count; never click on an emailed link that looks ques­tion­able, it may be a virus; en­able pri­vacy set­tings for so­cial net­works on your smart de­vices and be re­spon­si­ble In­ter­net users.
