How to Secure Google and Your Privacy Settings
It can be argued that there is not any Australian using the internet who doesn't use Google—and we're not just talking search engines!
Google has evolved from being just a search engine to becoming the hub for all your internet activities. From Chrome for surfing to Gmail for work mails, and from Drive for storage to a smart AI assistant—Google has become an integral part of everyone's lives.
With all that data going in and out of Google's "hubs," it is fairly obvious why your Google account has become one of the prime lucrative points for your hackers to focus on.
THE BITTER TRUTH
Google does not just store your basic information. It stores your sensitive data such as bank account numbers. It stores the passwords you need for numerous other websites. It also has access to your location—and if you use Google Drive, there is a chance you have your personal or work-related files on there. These are reasons why black markets are filled with demands for people's information—and cybercriminals keep trying to find a weakness in your Google security.
THE ONLY SOLUTION IS YOU!
When it comes to Google security and privacy settings, you must take command of your own security. While you can very well employ an IT expert to set up your accounts safely, the more you surf, accumulate data, add extensions, and do other activities on Google, the greater chance of your being attacked. However, the small business operator or family may not have an expert on their payroll at all times to keep a watch on the emerging security challenges.
