At this time if the year, when the festive season is fast approaching, you don't need a genius to tell you who a hacker is and what they can do to you if they get hold of your account or anything related to you.

Two of my friends last 2 weeks, lost heavily to this men of the underworld called hackers. One, a lady lost N4 million after they got her block chain account hacked and the other a guy, lost N2.8 million after getting his MMMunited Account hacked and all his investments where GHed into another wallet address different from the one he has set earlier. See screenshot if the warning I gave about that on Facebook.

As Hackers, are no God. They're all humans and can't hack you unless you're careless. So pls be more careful with the way you deal online.

Top 10 Methods Hackers Use Include!

==>1. when people leave their equipment attached to the internet without protection - most all phones/ipads/tablets are NOT protected unless you added protection

==>2. when people use the same password for all programs or weak passwords - I know a person whose all payment processors were robbed because he used the same password for everything .... the hackers just went to all payment processors and collected all his funds.

==>3. when they type in the password (I always point and click - nothing to trace - I use LastPass to make secure passwords)

==>4. when people do not clean their machines (cookies, history, cache etc...) I clean my daily - after all I am on the internet daily – I run 3 different free programs daily sometimes 4.

==>5. hackers are able to come onto your machine when you download, stream an image, movie anything and you can't see them they place sleeper programs on your machine that wake up sometime in the future

==>6. when you have a lot of tabs open on your browser (I have seen people's browser with so many tabs open they couldn't find what they were looking for) the more tabs you have open the weaker your security gets

==>7. when you do not keep your programs updated - especially your protection software

==>8. when people do not do a clean install - meaning have the machine totally erased and all programs reloaded like a new machine - depends on usage heavy user needs to have this done at least once every 6 months, a light user needs to have this done once a year

==>9. use public internet or open Wi-Fi - Wi-Fi is the easiest way to hack - anyone can steal the signal.

==>10. If you sign into a website - YOU MUST sign out - I see so many people just click the 'X' at the top right corner - when you do that it leaves the door wide open for hackers - you might as well hang an open for hacking sign on your equipment.

These are just a few ways... there are more. Some people go to the extreme of installing an anti-key logging software also. But the above should keep you safe as we approach the end of 2016. And make you leave a hack free life come 2017.
