Here’s what the hackers recommend:
1. Use a virtual private network (VPN - https://www.vpnunlimitedapp.com/en)
2. Vet suspicious websites with urlquery.net
3. Use Little Snitch (https://www.obdev.at/products/littlesnitch/index.html) to monitor your computer’s OUTgoing communications
4. Hover over links before clicking them. Make sure the address matches the URL you’re trying to visit.
5. Turn off your phone’s Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when you leave the house.
6. Instead of standard 4 digits, switch to a complex passcode for your phone (http://www.engadget.com/2014/03/05/how-to-set-up-a-complex-passcode-on-your-ios-device)
7. Turn on full disk encryption (https://theintercept.com/2015/04/27/encrypting-laptop-like-mean)
8. Instruct your cable/telephone/Internet service provider (ISP):
- not to give out your information to anyone, who can’t supply a predesignated by you pin
9. Make your social media accounts private
10. Use fake answers for security questions (so others can’t guess them)
