Passwords Vs Hackers
The netizens should pay more attention when wandering on the Internet.

Apart from these passwords, many also love choosing some sequences such as qwerty, 123123, iloveyou, letmein, and more.

The hacker group advises users to be more careful when surfing the Internet. We all should start to learn how to protect ourselves by creating enough powerful passwords. Next, we should often clean up our computers by reputable antivirus software to get rid of all ransomware and spyware (if any).

In addition, it is a good choice to apply the two-factor verification of online services such as Facebook, Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, and more. When the two-layer security is activated, hackers will face lots of difficulties to access illegally to your accounts even when they have passwords. This method will automatically send a random snippet to your smartphone as a verification whenever you sign in your apps.

There are many simple but helpful ways to protect your devices from hackers.
