Do not open any suspicious attachments
If you suddenly receive an email urging you to open an attachment or click a random link, don’t be fooled. Hackers will often try to use a sense of urgency in their emails to make you feel like you have to do what they say, so use your judgment and if something feels suspicious, don’t believe it.
Be wary of emails asking you to enter your login information
Be careful if you receive an email asking you to enter your login information. It’s best to go directly to the website in question and log in instead of clicking a link in an email.
use antivirus software
If you have good antivirus software installed, you can keep hackers out of your device. Having antivirus software on your device will ensure that you cannot click on any potentially malicious links that could install malware on your device, allowing hackers to gain access to your personal information.
