Tech Questions

Here are some common tech questions we get in our inbox.

Protecting Your Online Privacy: Why You Should Care and How to Stay Safe

Do you ever wonder if you should be concerned about your online privacy? It's a valid question, and the answer is yes. You may have heard the saying, "If it's on the internet, it's not private," but that's not entirely accurate. While privacy breaches do occur, there are steps you can take to ensure your safety across digital platforms and services. Here are some tips to get started:

  • Be mindful about the personal or business information you share online. Identity theft is a serious issue in the digital age, and oversharing can make you vulnerable to cybercrime.
  • Avoid using the same password for all your accounts. This makes it easy for hackers to access all your information with minimal effort.
  • Use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to stay safe. When conducting financial transactions, prioritize app security, keep sensitive information confidential, and avoid clicking on links from untrusted emails.

Don't take your online privacy for granted. By following these simple steps, you can protect yourself from potential threats and safeguard your digital footprint.

Understanding Malware: What You Need to Know

Malware is a broad term that encompasses viruses, Trojans, spyware, adware, and other malicious programs that are prevalent on the internet. While the effects of viruses are widely known, other types of malware can have different adverse effects.

It's important to familiarize yourself with each type of malware to know how it can affect your computer. Here's a brief overview:

  • Trojans: These appear like regular apps but run underground codes that can enable someone else to monitor your activity or take control of your computer.
  • Viruses: They work like biological viruses, disabling functions or tasks and spreading quickly through USB or thumb drives.
  • Adware: This is an abbreviation for "advertising-supported software" that automatically displays unwanted ads in browsers and websites. Adware is mostly sponsored or created by advertisers to generate revenue.
  • Ransomware: This type of malware essentially takes your computer hostage until you pay the ransom. All administrative access is disabled. It's regarded as one of the most severe forms because it demands real payment. It can be obtained like regular viruses, either through downloaded files, network vulnerabilities, or installed programs.
  • Spyware: This type of malware operates in stealth mode, primarily monitoring user activity. Spying can include data collection, keystroke tracking, and software or settings modifications. Like ransomware, it's a severe issue and should not be underestimated.
  • Rootkit: This type of malware gains remote access or control over your computer without being detected.
  • Worms: They are the most common type of malware. They usually exploit OS vulnerabilities and cause damage by overloading servers and consuming bandwidth.

The best way to protect your computer against malware is to install an anti-malware program. You can choose from free versions or opt for added security by purchasing premium. Additionally, be careful with your internet usage – avoid visiting untrusted or unsecured sites, avoid downloading from questionable sources, and don't click on anything without a second thought.

When a website is hacked, there are certain signs that you should be aware of. Pop-ups can appear, unexpected tabs may open, or your homepage may be altered. In addition, unknown browser add-ons may have been installed on your device.

Typically, hackers are interested in obtaining usernames and passwords. If your passwords are strong and secure, you have less reason to be concerned. You may utilize a reliable password manager or take additional steps, such as using unique passwords that are difficult to crack.

Have you ever wondered if it's necessary to "eject" external devices like USB/flash/thumb drives? The answer is a resounding yes. When your computer advises you to "safely remove" the device, it is urging you to allow it to finish the tasks in the queue to prevent data loss. While Windows may not immediately lose data due to sudden removal, it's highly recommended to safely eject external devices in all operating systems.

This process is called "write caching," and its purpose is to enhance system performance. Even when the computer signals that a task such as copying a file is complete, the device is technically awaiting further instructions to perform them efficiently in a single operation.

Considering Public Wi-Fi: Yay or Nay?

Public networks can be tricky and should be avoided unless absolutely necessary, according to experts. Despite the network's password, activity on it can still be monitored by other users. If the public network is compromised by cybercriminals, your information is at risk of being stolen.

However, if there is no other option but to use a public network, take these precautions:

  • Route your traffic through a VPN
  • Use HTTPS
  • Disable "sharing" before connecting
  • Limit your browsing to secure sites only.

Although it's impossible to prevent the eventual death of today's batteries, there are ways to prolong their life. Contrary to popular belief, fully discharging your phone is not beneficial. Lithium-ion batteries, which power most of our devices, last longer on slow and shallow discharges. To prevent damage, keep your device cool and avoid leaving it plugged in once it's fully charged. It's also important to recognize when your battery is beginning to fail, so you can replace it before it causes additional harm.

Identifying Spam Emails: Tips and Tricks

Are you tired of receiving spam emails and want to know how to differentiate them from legitimate ones? Here are a few ways to spot the subtle nuances of phishing attempts:

  • Be aware of emails that appear to come from trusted sources, but upon closer inspection, have suspicious elements such as logos or language.
  • Be cautious when clicking on hyperlinks in emails, especially if they lead to unfamiliar or unsecured websites.
  • Use effective anti-phishing software to help you identify malicious messages.
  • Pay attention to your network's communication patterns. If a unit begins interacting with another that it doesn't typically communicate with, it's a sign that something may be amiss.

By staying vigilant and taking the necessary precautions, you can protect yourself from spam emails and prevent cyber attacks.

Has your router been prompting you to reset it repeatedly? It's a common issue that many of us have experienced. After resetting, it may work without any issues for a while, but then the same problem resurfaces. So, what could be causing this?

There are several factors that could be contributing to this issue, such as overheating, high traffic (too many people using it), or it may be time to replace the router entirely. If you're up for trying to fix it yourself, a simple Google search can provide you with some useful solutions. Alternatively, you can contact your service provider to have it replaced.

Are you wondering whether downloading content from BitTorrent or other Torrent servers is a safe activity? Although it might seem like there is little risk involved, the answer is yes, you can still get caught. Certain media companies are actively searching for users who are illegally downloading their content. In addition, internet providers have the ability to monitor your activity to see if you are torrenting anything.

While it is true that the legalities surrounding torrenting have become less stringent over time, it is still a practice that can potentially land you in trouble. It is difficult for companies to file complaints against thousands of users scattered across the globe, so users can generally remain anonymous by using certain tools. However, it is important to remember that nothing is completely foolproof and there is always a risk involved.
