Only Use Your Own Devices and Do Not Let Others Use Yours

Especially when you want to do anything that requires you to log in, avoid using other people’s computers or devices. This goes for public access machines in cafes or libraries too. Bad actors can install a type of malware known as a keylogger, which tracks every keystroke and stores it, allowing them to discover your credentials and passwords. Additionally, be very careful of who you allow to access your devices, to ensure they aren’t installing malicious software too.
