2. Websites with HTTPS are secure

How to secure Windows 10Google gives us warning when we access the website with  “Http://”
“Http://” no more secure website by Google. When the website’s URL has Http:// – That’s mean website server is not secure and encrypted. Hackers easily track your information or delivers you spam software or files by Pop-ups by website.

If you don’t know about the link, VirusTotal is a great website to check all kinds of URLs or files. GO TO VIRUSTOTAL enter files or URLs in it, it shows full details about files.

Personally, I am using more than 20 email account or any social media accounts. Every platform tells us to sign-up or need our personal information like contact number. 
Use different passwords for each platform, it may be strong. Many people use a password like ABCD, 12345 or their name, their favorite pet name. Because strong password difficult to remember. 
So use Apps like Lastpass, Avast Password or many more. These apps suggest us password or we can store all types of password in it. These software are available on almost every OS and also available in the browser’s extension.

5. Use Two- authentication method

We know about the “Two- authentication” method. If you don’t know I explain it- it is used for security purposes. When you try to access your account from an unknown location or new device, the server need extra information from you. This type of information knows only you it may be your contact number or any questions which you set up at the time of account open. So use Two- Authentication method in every account. It increases your security.
