Cybersecurity could be a serious topic not only for big companies but also for consumers. On 06/18/2019 Casey Bond submitted an article pointing the dangers of sending nudes via text message.
Accidentally revealing information is one of the main ways people become victims of hacking.
In the article Bond quoted Zohar Pinhasi:
Use A Secure Connection
“Use a VPN when possible,” said Zohar Pinhasi, a cyber threat specialist and CEO of MonsterCloud. A VPN ― or virtual private network ― helps keep your web activity private by creating a temporary IP address and hiding your true IP address from any site you connect with. In other words, a personal VPN will help you stay anonymous on the internet. Pinhasi noted that there are plenty of good options available, some of which are free.
And whether or not you connect to a VPN, always use a secure wireless network. Never sext over public Wi-Fi, even if it’s password protected, Pinhasi said. It’s simply too easy for hackers to intercept your messages.
Use Messaging Apps With End-To-End Encryption
Rather than sexting over your phone’s messaging app, Facebook messenger or other vulnerable services, you should use an app that employs end-to-end encryption, according to Pinhasi.
Zohar Pinhasi is often quoted in the news or invited to speak on TV about cybersecurity. He is educating the public as well as bringing awareness.
