HOR­RORS OF HACK­ING

Distinguished Magazine - - INNOVATION -

Any­one’s de­vice can be hacked and data mis­used; we see this phe­nom­e­non mostly preva­lent among celebri­ties’ so­cial me­dia pages, where their pic­tures have been stolen and their phones have been hacked. Around eight mil­lion mo­bile de­vices have been a part of unique malware which were mainly aimed at snatch­ing per­sonal in­for­ma­tion and money. It has be­come a must for ev­ery­day users to main­tain a strong pass­word for all of their ac­counts. In­stal­la­tion of anti-malware soft­ware, en­cryp­tion, and in­stalling se­cu­rity should be done for safer ex­pe­ri­ence. Un­trust­wor­thy web­sites should be avoided at all costs. Firms that cre­ate mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tions should make sure they are as safe as could be made pos­si­ble. Con­sumers should be able to put their com­plete faith in these mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tions that have vul­ner­a­ble in­for­ma­tion. It should be the com­pany’s pri­or­ity to pro­tect the mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tions of their cus­tomers.
