5 Most Important Internet Hacks
Do you feel like the internet is an unknown territory? Do you find it overwhelming? There are so many different things online that can do a number of different tricks to your computer, phone, and other devices. We’re here to help figure these out. This blog post will list some of the most necessary hacks for everyday life. Remember: knowledge is power!
Use an adblocker: This will ensure that you’re not being tricked by sneaky ads or vulnerable to nasty malware when visiting a site with unwanted pop-ups and other advertisements embedded in the page content.
Be cautious when signing in to public Wi-Fi: Wi-Fi is great for getting a free internet connection, but it can also be very risky because you’re on an unsecured network with unknown people and other devices that could harm your device or steal data from you. Be sure to always use a VPN while accessing the web through hotspots at cafés, coffee shops, or hotels.
Avoid social media stalking your ex by installing a digital content blocker on any devices you share with children (and yourself!): This will help block access to sites that have explicit and/or inappropriate content as well as keep them safe from dangerous online predators. Use Facebook’s parental control settings to restrict what they are able to see on their device.
Forget about passwords and use a password manager instead: This will allow you to create unique, strong passwords for all your accounts while also having the ability to store them in one place so that they’re always accessible when needed – even if your browser is open elsewhere.
Enable two-factor authentication for your accounts: This is the best way to protect yourself from hackers and other online criminals that are looking to steal your identity or compromise your personal information.
Internet hacks may seem like a trivial matter, but they can make all the difference. Knowing how to navigate through your favorite social media platform or find an article on Wikipedia without having to do any heavy research will save your time and energy that would be better spent elsewhere.
