Security tips for those who use multiple connected devices

Connecting different devices — a smartphone with a card, a Google account with Google Play, a Smart TV with a phone — has many security risks. Our proxy company has decided to give some tips that will minimize the likelihood of data leakage. Of course, the choice of a specific method of protection should be adapted due to the individual situation, device and data type, hazard level as well as the means that you are willing to spend on security.

How to improve security: ways

  • Onsite Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi networks must be securely protected. It is not advisable to use insecure or too simple passwords and set default settings. If you can't reconfigure by yourself, contact a specialist. However, it is important that the specialist does not get your WPA2 password.
  • Device block. It is advisable to block all devices. Data leakage often occurs due to repeated hashing through unprotected devices that are not equipped with security software and passwords. There are many ways for protection: entering the password, fingerprints, patterns, or graphic gateway.
  • Software. Smartphones, tablets, Smart TVs can be protected by installing special software; due to their vulnerability, these devices are most often attacked. Installing an antivirus that allows you to apply browser extensions, applications, and security gateways to your IoT environment will not be time-consuming and costly.
  • iOS jailbreak. If you use an iPhone, do not jailbreak iOS. The software available in Cydia is not tested for reliability and security. Use licensed software, install updates regularly. Since today, you can control almost all IoT using a smartphone; it is recommended to pay special attention to the security of your smartphone.
  • Electronic signature. When it comes to encrypting data loss of which can lead to serious problems, it is recommended to use an e-signature (EDS). For example, this may be useful when registering an LLC.
  • Choosing an antivirus. Take the choice of an antivirus seriously: explore the sources, highlight the advantages and disadvantages of the existing structures, adapt the functionality, and highlighted pros and cons to your situation.

Together with wide opportunities the Internet carries a number of dangers. First of all, when it comes to anonymity and security.

Initially, the World Wide Web was conceived as a space without borders, where you can get absolutely any information on an anonymous basis.

In today's world, it becomes more difficult to keep personal and corporate data in secret, so the issue of information security is becoming more acute every day.

In the recent past by the standards of the development of information technologies, in 2015 Google created artificial intelligence based on neural networks, which was able to analyze the condition around itself and draw conclusions about its further education. The name of the new offspring from Google was given in abbreviated from the term "deep Q-network" - DQN. The DQN started training in common arcade games (Pakman, Tennis, Space Invaiders, Boksing and other classics).

Good afternoon! Now we are talking about such an important topic in our time, as an opportunity to bypass the blocking of sites. The problem is very relevant in our country


Proxy server: what is it? Main advantages of working via a virtual “mediator” – anonymity on the web, avoiding all bans, protection against attacks, intellectual property protection

Detailed and as simplified as possible instructions on how to choose and configure proxies on 1C for those who have never done anything like this before.

We will talk about the procedure for checking open ports, briefly describe the scanning procedure itself, and finally, list the main tools and scanners that are suitable for these tasks.

Many Internet users are complaining about annoying CAPTCHAs. You get kicked from a web-source for a second and suddenly, artificial intelligence asks you to type a set of symbols with numbers, or Russian & Latin letters, or click all the traffic lights and crosswalks in the pictures.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain anonymity and privacy on the Internet: search engines, websites, and social networks collect information about users and use it for commercial purposes. Any visitor to the web leaves a digital trail, followed by numerous advertisers and target markets.
