5 Terrible Things You Should Avoid When Using The Internet by Sodia(m): 2:05am On Nov 26, 2017
Long ago, comparing the internet to what it is now, you will find out absolutely that a lot of things have changed; there has been a lot of improvement in technology, and that alone has made our lives easier. Hardly before you find someone who isn’t on any social media.

Despite these advancements, there are thing you mustn't do online, must of us are guilty yhis things and its very important we stop doing them.

5 Worst Things You Should Stop Doing Online

Below are five (5) things i have outlined in which you should stop doing on the internet:

Avoid Synchronizing All Your Social Media Accounts Online

Synchronizing Facebook, Instagram, twitter, in such a way that when you make an update on Facebook it automatically sends it to other social network isn’t right at all. It sounds great in theory, but it is awful in real life. What you need to understand is that every social network is different. What works on Facebook, doesn’t work on Twitter, Linkedin or Instagram.

Using One Or Weak Passwords

I agree that not many people can remember all of their passwords. So they find one good, strong password that they use for absolutely everything. It is absolutely wrong to use the same password for your Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, email etc. You need to have more than one password. In fact, you need at least three to five different passwords that you use for different internet accounts.

Also for weak passwords, o you know that a lot of us use easy to guess password? How can you use 123456 as your password or 7654321… This can make any dummy easily guess your password and hack into your account. Even using your date of birth as password is not correct.

A good password should comprises of Letters, numbers symbols etc. e.g M4_09!... Let your password be strong enough that no demon on earth will be able to guess it.

Being Careless With Your Login Details

Being careless with your login details is totally bad, it is called login details because it is exclusive to you, it belongs to you and nobody else, not even your wife or your boyfriend should have access to your login details. That way, your information's are secured when it is exclusively known to you alone.

Another way of being careless with your login details is storing your login details on public computers or personal computers; Some of us still make use of the Café and even store our login details on the used browser which is absolutely not right. Even storing your login details on your own personal computer is not right because somehow, someday someone might have access to it.

Revealing Your Email Address Or Phone Number In A Comment Box Or Anywhere Online

I have stopped this long ago and ensure that every email that has ever been published on this blog was deleted. Never leave your email address on any blog post, Facebook or any platform that exposes it to the public, it is not safe, also in revealing your phone number online, a lot of people are guilty of this, post their phone numbers on Facebook, so that anyone can just check on you, PM you or WhatsApp you. Be smart about it and be wise about it.

Avoid Links In Email

Criminals love clickable links in emails. They absolutely love them. Yes, they are a good idea in theory. But sometimes, theory and real life do not work in the same way. Clicking on a link in your email might take you to a website with malicious software, if possible do not download any attachment you don’t know anything in your email, they can use it to hack into your account.

In conclusion, its important you keep your privacy private online, before the public will make your privacy public, LOL!

You should use at least up to five passwords or variations of your password. Because this era of mobile banking nobody can tell what might happen. Because there are animals around us. Very many animals that pride themselves in taking what does not belong to them

exactly.humans are the most unreliable creatures

I remember sometime back I used a friends phone to log in into my e.mail and other things to pass an information and the next thing was that I got a message that someone is trying to hack into my mail.I just knew it was my so called frenemy because I remember while I was at it his phone battery went dead at work so I wasn't able to finish what I wanted to do and I told him,he said I shouldn't worry that whenever he charges his phone he will log out properly.

Immediately I knew he tried hacking into my e-mail I changed all my passwords and I distanced myself from him and cut all ties from him.he himself knew I caught him and he was trying to get friendly by cracking dry jokes that I'll be a good staff at fbi,he's sorry and all.I said I've forgiven you o but I'm happy you have revealed who you truly are.since then I don't ever do anything important or financial on anyone's phone even if my own phone battery is dead

Nicely said, the ones I think are very important is avoid using same password for different social media accounts, and avoid clicking on links in your email.

Nigerians have a higher chance of being scammed than being hacked
Anyone Nigerian who is deficated enough to know how to hack won't target nothing but the big fish unless they're just being vengeful.

Personally, I'd target EFCC
