What can you do to stay safe online?
Be more secure.
Uninstall any software you don’t need and update the software you do need. Patch third-party software using a free tool like the Home Updater offered by PatchMyPC.
Regularly backup your important files to an external hard drive and/or to the cloud.
Create a standard user account for daily use and a separate administrative user account for installing applications and changing system settings. Do not log in with the administrative user.
Antivirus / Ad block
The antivirus on your Windows 10 computer is sufficient for most people. You should install an ad blocker like uBlock Origin to keep annoyances at bay.
