Tech Tips: Hackers can easily steal all your data, and identify fake and real websites in this way!



Cases related to fake websites keep coming to light every day. Many times, links to fake websites are shared under the guise of shopping, form filling, or other online formalities. If you trust such links and share your information without thinking and checking, there may be a risk of all your data falling into the hands of hackers. To protect yourself from such scams, you should keep some important things in mind.

Read the URL carefully:

Examine the website URL carefully. If the URL starts with "https" it indicates that the site is secure. However, you cannot rely solely on this. Check the spelling of the URL, and make sure it is not misspelled, such as amazon is not written as amaz0n. Also, verify the domain, such as .com, .net, or .org.
