Competition: Kaspersky Internet Security multi device

20140426-214435.jpg
In this present day and age we are reliant on computers and electronic devices. All our information and lives are stored on a computer, previous photographs, video clips and important files. Many people have their whole work system and files on their PC. Can you imagine one day switching on your PC and everything gone, your files hacked into, your identity stolen or a virus which destroys your files, infects your systems and renders it useless? I would be devastated. I am a self confessed computer and gadget addict. I am rarely away from one.

I know of so many people who have very little or no security whatsoever on their computers. Meaning they are totally unprotected and open to viruses and hackers. They then wonder why their computers are running so slow. I think many people assume that their new PC comes pre loaded with some sort of security software when the truth is, many don’t. Many may come with a short trial but once expired it’s useless.
Protecting your expensive PC and other gadgets may be considered expensive but it doesn’t need to be.
Kaspersky Internet Security multi device costs less than Β£50. This is much less than any computer technician will charge should your PC get a virus.

This security software is easy enough to install. Mine took about 10-15 minutes to be up and running. It allows users to protect up to 3 devices at once including PCs, Macs and Android devices. Only one licence is required and gives flexible protection to mix and match a combination of devices.
Kaspersky internet security does regular PC scans and you can scan manually too. There is an option of quick or full scans. On my first scan it picked up two threats which I was able to get rid of quickly.
Kaspersky protects whether surfing, shopping, banking or on social networks. It protects against known computer viruses, malware infections, cyber crime and phishing. All applications and files that are downloaded are instantly scanned and threats monitored before they can cause harm.

    My tip for internet security is to have a good anti-virus program such as the Kaspersky up for grabs. and be very careful which emails you open. If they tell you your account is in danger then go straight to the website concerned to check. Do not go through that email as it is definitely phishing for your account details. Everyone receives at least 10 of these a day.

    Have a good virus checker installed: don’t open e-mails from anyone you don’t know and DEFINITELY do not open any links that they contain. A good tip that I learned today is that if you are using Mozilla Firefox and press shift as you click on the icon it opens in safe mode and seems to stop things ‘in the background’ slowing the connections down.

    FB – Tracy Hanson, followed via email and tweeted as @HOTTINGERSPICK. Keep your internet security up-to-date. Don’t press any links who state they are from Paypal unless you are 100 per cent certain it is – if you hover the cursor over links it will show where the link leads you to. Totally ignore any that say from a foreign lottery that you have won money. Ignore the FBI (who send me ones every day nearly) stating unless you pay them dollars they are coming to arrest you. 3 years later I am still waiting lol

    Not only must you have anti-virus software but you need to make sure it is set up to automatically update and run virus checks. Never visit sites that require login direct from an unpersonalised email and never open attachments unless you are expecting them.

    i think the key to safe internet use starts with a great anti virus etc and also a lot of common sense
    dont open anything that looks dodgy
    under no circumstances down load attachments from unknown senders
    and when using secure website make sure the browser address bar is what it said it was check the spelling it in doubt stay out and dont put in your security details or passwords x

    always make sure you have an anti virus taht does regular scans

  15. May 3, 2014 / 21:15

    Don’t open any attachements.

  16. May 5, 2014 / 14:02

    Always look for the green tick next to genuine email addresses from companies such as ebay, banks, amazon etc If they don’t have a green tick next to them treat with caution. If you’re asked to click a link to “your” account then log into it via the website rather than through the link. And remember, companies rarely email you if it’s an urgent financial issue, they would call.

    be cautious with files and links that you open, try to scan them first if you have a programme that does that πŸ™‚

    Don’t ever believe your email has just won you Β£1,000,000 or that Paypal or your bank need you to reconfirm your detals!

    Only open emails if I trust the sender – anything suspicious just gets deleted, especially if it has attachments!

    I had to learn the hard way but never search for your bank to log on through a search engine always type the address in so that you are taken to the official website and not a very convincing fake

    I’ve been using Microsoft Security Essentials (also known as Windows Defender if you are unfortunate enough to be using Windows 8) for years, it provides decent basic protection for free and performs a weekly scan of your PC. I also have a copy of the free version of Malwarebytes which I use to scan on-demand once a month or if MSE has flagged up malware then I use it as it does a deeper scan and cleans better than MSE. Be aware of current email phishing scams and dodgy attachments, I’m subscribed to several tech emails to keep myself up to date. In the end though, the biggest risk to your machine is YOU – all the security software in the world will not protect you against your own idiocy if you make a habit of visiting dodgy websites or using torrents (used for file sharing but mostly for illegal downloading). Keep backups of all your important documents, photos etc, make sure you have product keys for your paid-for software (backed up obviously) and be prepared to completely reformat and reinstall Windows from scratch as a last resort when you have a malware problem that you just cannot shift.

    Tweeted @hazelangell, following via email – my tip is just to be very careful when it comes to clicking links in an email, only ever do so if you know for sure that it’s come from the correct person/website.

    My tips for keeping safe on the internet are: Install good antivirus software such as Kaspersky which I would love to have, and be careful what you click on, open up and download and try and opt out of anything dodgy, and monitor and safeguard your children’s internet usage as much as possible and educate them on how to keep safe online πŸ™‚ x
