It is really important to take internet security seriously.
Studies and reports about the fingerprint that we leave when browsing Internet or when accessing platforms and social networks have been done for years. there’s always a common denominatorsomething that should be instilled in boys and girls from an early age, and this is the fact that we need to be better protected. The choice of a strong password and the use of double safety factor are the first keys, because the reality it turns out more chilling than a bank account in the red.
In Spain we are not aware of how dangerous the digital world is and the consequences of not being protected correctly
exist passwords for all types of pages Web, social mediaaccess to devices or to manage the connection by Wifi, we recommend you take a look at the article about how to view the passwords saved on your mobile phone. Recently, at the time of writing the article, we have known a report issued by the firm Panda Security and that warns us that only ‘one in three Spaniards makes correct use of their passwords on the Internet’.
We are very worried by internet securitysince the study states that at a 31% of those surveyed are concerned about the theft of bank keysyet 27% the entrance of virus on your devices already a 22% the kidnapping of personal information. However, not everyone makes sure they have maximum security. It is surprising to see how the 30% of the 1,500 respondents use the same password always, while only the 7% use a password different for each service.
The management of passwords is another of the relevant points in the study, where we know that a 5% of respondents continue pointing the same in a paper or digital document, the eleven% uses a password manager and the 47% states that manage to memorize all your passwords. This last figure contrasts with the large number of people who forget their password once a month, a 70%while inverting a average of 2.4 times to type the correct password.
Clearly we need to start take us seriously the security online and the best recommendation is to have a different password per servicefor which password managers are essential, and as long as we can use the double factor authenticationwhich will force us to enter our password and receive an extra code by phone or email to double the security.
