5 secrets only cybersecurity experts and hackers know



Some security measures are well known. I don’t need to remind you to install this latest update on your computer, right?

Others are less obvious. Do you lock your computer every time you get up? If you don’t live alone, you should. Here is the easiest way to do it if you are lazy.

On your phone, you probably would never have guessed that leaving Bluetooth connected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is a mistake. Here’s why – and what to do if you can’t live without your AirPods.

I’ll have your back with more secrets that only technicians know to keep you safe.


1. See if someone is secretly receiving copies of your emails

they always call me on my national radio show from people worried that someone is watching everything they do.

One of the first steps I recommend is to make sure your mailbox is blocked. Here are the steps if you notice or suspect any common logins.

Log into your email, then go to your account or security settings.

You will find an option to view recent login activity or login history. It will be labeled “Recent Activity”, “Security”, or “Login History”.

Tip: Do you use Gmail? Click the Details link next to the Last account activity field at the bottom of any Gmail page.

View a list of recent logins. See anything that isn’t you or one of your devices? You may also see a strange place.

If you spot an unknown location or someone else’s device, act quickly. Change your password, make sure two-factor authentication is enabled, and remove all devices from your account.

Are you in the process of breaking up or recently divorced? Read this guide to unravel your digital life. It’s worth your time.

2. Make sure your printer hasn’t been hacked

Like your computer, your printer is a goldmine for hackers. Why? Printers often store copies of printed documents. Any cybercriminal can get copies of sensitive information, such as your financial statements.

Here are three signs that your printer has been hacked:

Your printer starts printing blank pages or a set of characters.

You notice print jobs that you didn’t initiate.

Your printer settings changed – and it wasn’t you.

What should you do?

Turn off the printer. Press and hold the reset button, usually on the back or bottom of the printer.

While holding the reset button, reconnect the printer and turn it on. After about 20 seconds, the lights will flash to indicate that the process is complete.

Running out of ink in the middle of printing is the worst. Use these tips to save on ink.

3. Your iPhone has a hidden location tracker

I recommend viewing location settings on your phone. It will go a long way to disable many GPS tracking. But you can’t stop there.

Why does your phone tell you how long it will take to get to the office, or know your arrival time at the grocery store when you get into your car on business on a Saturday morning? This is part of the important locations.

Apple says the feature is there so your phone can recognize the places that matter to you and provide personalized services like traffic routing and better photo memories.

Here’s how to access it – and close it.

Open your iPhone settingsthen touch Privacy & Security.


Choose Location services.

Scroll down and tap system services.

Scroll until you see Important places and tap it.

If you don’t want iPhone to track your location, move the switch next to Important Places to Important Places. left to disable the setting.

Want to erase this list of important places? Follow instructions here.

4. You can erase your phone if you lose it

The very idea that your phone is in the wrong hands is creepy. Imagine a stranger browsing through your photos, videos, apps, conversations, and browser tabs.

So what if your phone goes missing? You can take steps to protect your information even if you never get your phone back.

To remotely wipe data from your iPhone:

Open and go to Find iPhone peculiarity.

Select your lost phone, then select Erase iPhone.

Man holding an iPhone

To remotely wipe data from an Android phone:

go to and sign in with your Google account. Select your lost phone and you will get information about its location.

When prompted, select Enable blocking and deletion.

Choose Erase device erase his data.

Check out my guide here to learn more about how to find, backup, or wipe data from your phone.e.

5. Apps desperately need you to share juicy details.

Social media companies are eager to get hold of your contacts’ birthdays, photos, full names, email addresses, and more. They tell you that it’s a handy tool to find your friends, but your friends’ information is not yours to share. It is their own decision where to share.

From your address book, companies create so-called shadow profiles. They can learn tone from those you know, even if they don’t use those platforms. mean stuff

How can you make a difference? Prevent apps from accessing your phone contacts. Check which apps have access and disable it. Always pay attention and stop sharing information without real benefit for you.

Even your phone number is valid in the wrong hands. This is why I use a recording device and not my real number when I need to give it out.
