Simple security measures to remain stress-free with your gadgets

Prevention is better than cure. Better safe than sorry. Just like locking your door when you leave the house, there are simple things to be kept in mind while working with your gadgets.
1. Secure your OS: You should invest your large sum of money on a good internet security like Norton 360, for your basic needs like antivirus and internet security. For example:360 even installs facebook plug-in that monitor your wall and news feed for malicious links and deletes them.
2. Secure your data: for securing your sensitive data like bank passwords, statements etc., USB drives come with the basic software that provides access to the user only after you supply the right password. Windows 7 and vista allows you to encrypt your data with utility called Bit locker. You can also use free options like Encrypt stick or True Crypt.
3. Secure your smart phone: in order to secure you from prying eyes peering into your e-mail. These days smart phone lets you set a password to prevent unauthorised use.McAfees’s
Wave secure(about Rs.900 a year)not only tracks the location of your Android,Blackberry,Symbian or windows phone device but also keep tabs on what the thief is using your phone for.
4. Secure your Wi-Fi: To restrict unwanted users from accessing your Wi-Fi connection, lock down your wireless network using WPA or WPA2 encryption standards(available on all routers)to set a password to your wireless router(do not use default password supplied with the router). You can even set your pre-fixed devices to connect to it-these settings can be found on the router homepage (check your manual).
5. Secure your public browsing: if possible avoid using public computers or networks like the plague-they could be infected with spyware that could track and harvest your details. To be used only for web search and maps, not for bank transactions or e-mail/facebook.
