Protect your device, browser & web connection
When thinking about website security, it is easy to overlook the:
- device (operating system) used to connect to your website,
- the way you connect (your web browser) to the internet, and
- how you connect (in the clear or via encryption).
To do so would be a BIG mistake.
After all, where do you log into your website dashboard from?
From your computer device via a web browser, hopefully using a secure encrypted connection (HTTPS).
To use the latest available version and release of operating system and browser is no guarantee that your personal data will not be stolen but it will significantly reduce the risk.
Likewise when you take the time to add an SSL certificate to your website.
DEVICE Operating System (OS)
FREQUENTLY check you are using the latest available version and release of of your device's OS.
