Safely navigating the Net


The following tips may not guarantee the protection of your data and PC, but they will help to increase security.

  • Be wary of unknown mailers, especially those requesting login details for your online bank account or other user data.
  • Do not send user data, passwords, etc. by email.
  • Do not open junk mail or attachments from strange sources.
  • Do not click on suspicious links in emails or open attachments if you are unsure as to whether the sender actually exists. Use an anti-virus program. Set the program to automatically update.
  • Install a firewall.
  • Make sure you are always running the latest version of the operating system on your device.
  • Use secure passwords (a combination of digits, letters and special characters) and not the same password for everything. Never write down your passwords.
  • Make regular backups of your data.
  • External hard drives or external servers are particularly well suited as a backup. You can also use PEAX as an additional backup. All documents stored in PEAX are safe and secure, no matter which device you are using. 
  • Do not save sensitive data (passwords, credit card numbers, etc.) on your hard drive.
  • Use encrypted data transmission.
  • Encrypt your emails.
  • Make sure your Wi-Fi connection is secure. Use a secure password to prevent access to your Wi-Fi.
