One of the most common crimes that we see in the print and television media today is cyber-crime. How many times do we read in the papers about people’s bank accounts hacked, credit cards misused, pictures morphed and other similar instances? Why do these things happen? The fundamental answer to this question is that you do not follow the right protocol while surfing the internet. You can prevent these scams/frauds if you follow these security tips at all times while browsing the internet.

#1 Always Log Out Of Accounts

This is one of the most fundamental tips that you need to follow if you don’t want to fall into the ugly traps laid by hackers. For example, when you check an email account from a system (used at home or public places like airports, net centres, cafes, etc.), you should always remember to log out of your account after you finish browsing. A common mistake, which many computer users do, is just to click on the X mark at the top right corner of their screens. This will not suffice. When the next person tries to open his email account, he will be directed to your account, simply because you have not logged out completely!
