In the world of the modern Internet, you ought to be very careful. Hacking attacks have reached a new high from the past few years and will definitely rise in the coming years. You might be at risk when you are browsing the internet, opening attachments, saving or storing data. You need cybersecurity tools to protect yourself from hacking attacks. Below are the top cybersecurity tools you must have in 2020.
Good Antivirus/Antimalware Software
It all needs a single click on a malicious link or an infected file to get hacked. A good antivirus and antimalware is the top cybersecurity tools you should have on your PC. Do you know there are 3,50,000 new malware discovered every day with total known malware reaching almost 1 billion in 2019? It is always recommended to install both antivirus and antimalware on your PC. You can test the features of antivirus by installing a trial version of it and then go for buying.
A good VPN software provides a secure and encrypted connection to a network over the internet. It also protects your identity and browsing history from search engines and your ISP (Internet Service Provider) To know more about VPN and its benefits, you can read our post from the below link.
A Secure Browser
When I say a secure browser, I mean the browser which cares both your security and privacy. Today’s browsers are more into showing you ads and collecting your personal information and interests. These search engines and browsers sell your personal data to third parties.
A Powerful Ad Blocker
To be honest, nobody likes Ads. Do we? I know ads are a decent way to support developers and content creators, but ads can be harmful too. Most ads contain malicious codes which do not even require a click to activate. A powerful Adblocker is the only thing you need when you want to browse without any interruptions and unwanted ads.
One of the best methods to be secure is to use a very strong password. If you have accounts on multiple websites, then remembering different passwords is not easy. You should not use the same password on multiple websites and accounts. A password manager comes handy in these situations. It can create strong passwords and save them with a single master password.
Full security can be achieved with multiple layers of protection. The more number of security tools you have to protect yourself, the more safer you can be. If you know any security tool which is important to be installed on your PC, please let us know in the comments.
