Secured surfing on the Internet: here's how to do it!

More than six billion people worldwide are on the Internet every day. In addition, over two billion people have what is known as a social media account. These are mainly on the company Meta, which has apps such as Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp under its name. On average, a person spends as much as two hours and 20 minutes on the Internet, research shows. From that, many people do not know how easily their data can be found. You simply have to click on one wrong link, and before you know it, hackers know all your online data. In this article, therefore, we talk about the dangers of the Internet. How should you protect yourself against them? Translated with (free version)

Strong passwords

Nowadays you can hardly use the Internet without having an account in the process. 70 percent of people who are on the Internet think, “oh well, I’ll just use the same password everywhere. Otherwise I’m going to forget it.’ Please don’t do this, because you make it so gigantically easy for people with the wrong intentions. The moment they figure out what that password is, they can log into any of your accounts within seconds. For the really important apps, use a new password every time. These are usually suggested by Google or Apple, by the way. Write them down on a piece of paper so you never have to worry about forgetting it.


Two-step verification is an extra layer of security. If you happen to have used the same password everywhere, this at least ensures that you can outsmart the hacker. The moment you enter both your e-mail address and password, you will receive a notification. It often asks you to either enter a code or scan a qr code. In most cases, this is connected to your phone number or a special app. Should someone want to get into your account, they can’t since they can’t enter your phone number again as two-step verification.

It happens bizarrely often. People want to quickly look up some new information and end up on a totally new site. As always, then the so-called cookies come up. Do you agree to the following conditions: ….. Chances are you then click ‘yes’ without having actually read it. It doesn’t happen often, but you may have agreed to super weird privacy terms. Always read the fine print or do not agree to the terms. For example, if you’re looking up “how to send an anonymous text” it’s not even necessary to agree to all the terms.
