As our world grows more reliant on technology, cybercriminals have developed sophisticated ways to access our personal devices.
While being a cautious Internet user can help to decrease your risk of becoming a victim, anyone who completes transactions online needs protection in place to keep their private information just that – private. Antivirus and VPN software are two of the most cost-effective solutions to navigate the risk of shopping, communicating, and working digitally.
Why Do I Need Antivirus Software?
Antivirus software runs in the background to prevent, scan, detect, and delete viruses. Without this protection, your devices are vulnerable to becoming infected with malware, spyware, ransomware, and adware. This can cause your computer to run slower, delete files, or crash completely. Your identity may also be compromised if your device becomes infected, making antivirus software an important component of identity theft protection. Most people use several devices to complete everyday transactions, so be mindful of that when considering which devices need this protection. If you use a smartphone, computer, tablet, and/or any other electronic devices, consider how you use them and whether or not antivirus software would increase the security of each device.
What is a Virtual Private Network (VPN)?
A virtual private network (VPN) masks your IP address, allowing you to browse the web anonymously through a private network. This anonymity has been more necessary in recent years, as several companies track Internet habits to determine consumer behavior. A public internet connection also leaves your network vulnerable to attacks, creating another avenue for thieves to access files on your computer, your conversations, and your personal information, often with the goal of stealing your identity. This is a threat that has only grown more prevalent in recent years as most people access their bank accounts, shop online, send emails, and pay bills while on the go. Unless you’re using a private network all of the information you’re transmitting may be susceptible to exposure. In addition to increased cybersecurity, a VPN allows you to stream from any location – this is especially important if you plan on traveling overseas, as streaming services are often unavailable outside of the country.
