Take the following actions if you become a victim of a cyberattack:
- Immediately change the passwords on all of your accounts. In this sense, use secure passwords. one that won’t be broken in a matter of minutes or seconds. In this case, you can make use of a password generator.
- You can also use safe and effective anti-malware software to scan your computer for dangerous programs and processes.
- Turn off your mobile device and Wi-Fi whenever not in use as soon as you learn of a breach. If the hacker relies on the malicious software and you being online to carry out the attack, this will stop it from using your data or sending your information back to him or her.
- Run a complete system check, and get rid of any questionable programs right away. If your anti-malware program failed to detect any faults, search through the most recent downloads to determine if that is the source of the problem.
- Inform your friends and contacts of the breach and request that they disregard any erroneous messages they may receive from you.
Especially if it’s a mobile phone, restore or reset your device to its factory default settings. If several pop-ups are making it impossible to use your phone, this might be your last option.
