The vulnerability is due to a problem with SwiftKey, a keyboard app that’s preinstalled on all Samsung android devices.

Though Samsung is working feverishly to release a patch, we highly recommend that you protect yourself right now by installing a mobile security app such as ZoneAlarm Capsule that blocks hackers from communicating with your device. Make sure the app you choose includes a VPN that encrypts all incoming and outgoing communications on Public WiFi.

Your online privacy depends on the strength of your passwords.

 

Your privacy is only as safe as your weakest password.

Ok, so maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but let’s face it. The strength of your passwords is important. If it wasn’t, why would so many people be interested in hacking them!

They make sure that the Posts, Likes and Comments that appear on your Facebook page are authentic. They keep your Dropbox photos private.

Clearly, having a strong password and keeping it secure is important. Which leads to the question – how can you create rock-solid passwords and keep them protected? Here are 14 simple steps to help you out.
