Using anti-virus software and firewalls


Some computer viruses steal your password and financial account information by recording your keystrokes. For this reason, it is recommended that you install an anti-virus software and update it on a regular basis. A firewall is a system designed to prevent unauthorized parties (usually referred to as "hackers") from gaining access to sensitive information stored on your computer. Firewalls can be installed as either hardware and software or both.
