How secure do you feel in the world of internet? How secure do you feel in the world of internet? You have personal things in your email id's, you have online bank account and a lot more. We hear a lot of hacking incidents here and there. Sometimes I wonder, what if my bank account gets hacked! Now-a-days it is not very difficult job to hack. There are even incidents like social engineering where someone will appear as he is known to you or some authority to get the vital information to hack your account. There are lots of security measures which you can follow so that you can be less prone to hack. But what security measures do you personally follow to avoid getting hacked?

I think we are a bit slack in this area. We don't take too many security measures at all.

I don't really trust the internet, so I avoid putting certain personal information on it.

@ichchhe_mrityu. I think you don't have to put your real name on your email. When you use your email just don't put any personal information.

@CoolPeace even bank statement and stuff comes to personal email account. So how can you avoid that.. I am not thinking about my name.. but if you order something that or transact something every information comes to the mail box.. forget about personal things... hackers can get a lot information from your mail box also..

If someone from the bank email you or call you it is best for you to contact the bank directly to see if they needed to contact you for anything. You can also sign up for one of the many identity theft companies.

yes.. social engineering can be avoided by that.. but I have heard lot of cases, esoecially for older generation, where they disclosed atm.pin and lost money from their account. I have told my father if he gets any phone call or sms related to banking information just speak to me before providing that information.
