FEATURED POST: 5 WAYS TO KEEP INFORMATION SAFE ON THE INTERNET

5 ways to keep information safe on the internet

Thanks to technological advancement, we can now get lots of our daily activities done at speed of light which is stress- free and cost-effective.

Howbeit, it's almost unavoidable to release personal information during some of these online dealings. Therefore paving way for cyber criminals and scammers to access sensitive knowledge about you.

Well, everything has its own merits and demerits. But there are ways we can go about keeping information safe on the internet.

Without further ado, let's take a run-down of some of these ways:

Play safe on social media: Yes, social media has created a platform for us to share our intimate details with the world. But you should be careful about what you post( be it pictures, write ups, etc) on these networks.

Even information like your address, family life, birthday can be handy for criminals.

To avoid this, ensure that you personalize the settings in your social media accounts. 

Be careful when people you don't seem to know in the real world request for your personal information.

Password protection: Nowadays, a lot of sites require you to have a complex password before signing up. While this may seem annoying at first, it's in your best interest.

Your password should be difficult to guess by friends and family. Which means you ought not to use obvious information like anniversary, date of birth, name, etc

Switch off Bluetooth and Wi-fi when not needed: Ensure you disable your device Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection when not in use.

It's necessary you take this precaution because other devices nearby may receive free access to yours, including open file sharing networks.

So it's expedient that you always adjust network sharing settings to only trusted devices.

Secure your cards: When making purchases online, ensure that the website you enter your card details into is secure.

Do not make purchases on an unsecured network. Just to play safe, you can load a card with little cash for online purchases. It limits the risk, in case someone steals your information.

Factory reset: Simply deleting an information from your device doesn't permanently remove it from the machine.

So before you sell, give -out or throw away your old device, ensure that the entire machine is wiped and given a factory reset.

Doing this gives you total peace of mind that the next user won't be able to access any of your information.

It's wise giving yourself a cover online you know.

JOB INTERVIEW: 7 EASY WAYS TO MAKE A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION
Need I remind you the saying, " first impression lasts longer." Then, if truly you know this and you believe it holds( sure it does), you'll agree with me that making a good first impression is a serious issue that needs to be dealt with.
What you showcase determines the kind of response you receive. Should in case you come out offensively, say in an argument, then you leave the recipient with no other option than to receive it defensively.

BUSINESS ISSUES: HOW CAN I PROMOTE MY BUSINESS( a question most entrepreneurs rarely get answers to)

HOW CAN I PROMOTE MY BUSINESS? ( a question most entrepreneurs rarely get answers to)

EVERYDAY, we see different start-ups sprout. They begin with so much enthusiasm and zeal that gives their ' target audience' a sought of impression they will be on for a long time.

But, however, what we imagine or the   FIRST IMPRESSION we get isn't always the end result.

When these start-ups get hit with the frustration and failures on several attempts to promote their business, they allow the anger and bitterness that we all sometimes feel while on the job hijack their zeal and vision which makes their business divert from one of ascension to one of constant regression. This therefore births the ever- bulging option to fold up which they readily give in to.

To be candid, no business or start-up experiences a bump free ride to success. But this doesn't rule out the fact that it's possible to make headway.

To this effect, we've packaged, just for you, useful tips or strategies…
