So Apple finally launched the all new iPhone X.  If you love  tech, you are probably excited with the news and cannot wait to get your hands on the latest iphone,  Smartphones such as iPhones, tablets and laptops are good to have but are also vulnerable to theft and online threats.

Below are some of the ways to keep your devices and valuable data safe and secure.

1. Install comprehensive security software

A lot of people take their online security for granted and never really think they can become a victim of a virus attack or online hacking until it happens.

This is where a comprehensive and value for money security software such as ZOL’s ESET is useful. ZOL’s ESET will help protect your data and devices against viruses and phishing scams. It allows you to remotely lock and wipe devices in the event they are stolen or lost, and even locate them.

ZOL’s ESET is supported on Android and this helps a lot with Android phones as they are vulnerable to malware attacks.

2. Back up
Data is the most important aspect of your computer. Accidents happen, devices get lost, stolen, hacked or even fall prey cybercriminals. Your computer could crash, or become affected by ransomware. How do you recover your lost data? Most of the times you cannot. You should back up your personal or critical work data on a regular basis. But this is a lot of work. Thankfully, ZOL offers Crashplan for Africa, a back up service available for home and business users, where you can automatically back up your data using either the 30Gb, 50Gb or 100Gb multi-device plans.
Otherwise, if your gadget is lost, stolen or damaged, your contact numbers, treasured photos and videos and important financial and work documents might be lost along with your device.

3. Keep an eye on the kids
The internet is a fantastic place for your children to learn, play, create and connect - opening up a whole new world of possibilities. However, there’s a lot of inappropriate stuff online that’s all too easily accessed by curious young minds. Installing parental control software will go a long way protecting your children from cyber criminals, stalkers and other dangers that lurk on the internet.  

ZOL’s ESET Parental Control lets you manage what your kids can see on their devices, filtering content, restricting sites, setting gaming limits, blocking inappropriate websites and ensuring they stay safe online. One more reason to get ZOL’s ESET.
