2 Be Mindful of Downloads & Apps
Cybercriminals have a plethora of sophisticated tools and tactics they can use to attack you. You can make it harder for them to do so by following some simple tips:
- Don’t click email links from people you don’t know.
- Be wary of apps and software unless you can verify that the developer is legitimate.
macOS has a built-in feature called Gatekeeper that can help with some of these tasks. It basically blocks the installation process for apps that don’t come from the Mac App Store. If you must download an app from a third-party website, be sure to check the developer’s credentials before proceeding.
