Season’s Greetings to one and all,
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
As in previous years, be caution from calls or emails claiming to be from BT or Microsoft suggesting that your computer has been hacked. If your computer pops up a message to say you are infected and to call a number, or it even talks to you, turn it off and call me for advice, it’s usually a browser ‘pop-up’ trying to scare you into thinking your computer is infected.
Hacking your accounts is still a major issue. As recommended last year, if you can, activate Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to reduce the risks, use different passwords for your different accounts and consider a password manager to make these easier to keep on top of.
If you are worries about your passwords or accounts you can try out the email address and password checkers on the website
