05.05.2021 - If no specific measures are taken, a computer, tablet or smartphone is defenceless against the dangers of the internet. Malware (viruses, worms, Trojans, etc.) can be used by unauthorised parties to view, alter or even delete your data. Therefore: Check your device to see if antivirus software is installed and a firewall is activated.
Anti-virus software detects malware and renders it harmless.
- Since malware is always evolving, it is important that your anti-virus software is always up to date.
- In principle, an anti-virus program is only ever one element in protecting your device and your data. Also remember never to open email attachments from unknown senders and never to click on suspicious links.
