Such device must have anti-virus software, with an up-to-date, regularly updated database of virus definitions, types and classes and a safe version of the preferred web browser and an enabled firewall. The user should verify if the Operating System and the installed software have the newest and compatible updates, as the malware attacks often target bugs in the installed software.
- The login details used for internet services include - for instance: logins, passwords, PIN, electronic certificates, etc. - they must be stored at a place which is inaccessible to others and impossible to penetrate using internet access. They must not be disclosed or stored in the device in a manner which makes them impossible to access by unauthorised persons.
- We recommend to remain cautious when opening suspicious attachments or when clicking on links on unexpected e-mails, such as from unknown senders or those located in the spam folder.
- We recommend to turn anti-phishing protection on in the web browser, i.e. tools which verify if the displayed website is authentic and if it was not established for phishing, i.e. for impersonating another person or institution.
- Files should only be downloaded from trusted places, services and websites. We do not recommend the installation of software from unverified sources, in particular from unknown developers with unverified opinions. These rules also apply to mobile devices, such as smartphones or tablets.
- Please set a safe and secure password for accessing Wi-Fi wireless network. it should not include any template or a string of characters that could be easy to guess (such as street name, the name of the host, date of birth, etc.). We recommend to use the highest possible wireless Wi-Fi encryption standards which can be used on your equipment, i.e. WPA2.
