Not Being Careful About What You Click
One of the easiest ways for a hacker to get malware onto your computer is to simply trick you into installing it yourself. Because of that, you’ll want to be extremely careful about the sites you visit, the links you click and the apps that you download.
Ideally, only visit authentic and secure websites online and avoid clicking on anything suspicious in emails or social media posts. When it comes to apps, get them from an official App Store whenever possible. If not, make sure you do research on the developer and download the app from a trusted source.
