Today's Tip for Cybersafety and Security
Avoid Risky Downloads
Just because something is free doesn’t mean you need or want it. Hackers rely on you to download free software so they can sneak in malware to give them access to your computer and steal vital info. Don’t blindly click and download. If you get pop-ups asking you to install something, ask yourself, “Did I request this?” Don’t assume that clicking NO or CANCEL will get rid of the annoyance. Instead, close pop-ups using the “X” in the corner.
