Turn your Bluetooth off when not in use

When you leave your Bluetooth on, it opens up pathways for hackers to inject malicious software into your computer and access your private information.

Hackers can use Bluetooth to access your private information and spread malicious software throughout your network. Minimizing Bluetooth usage (especially while traveling) will help reduce exposure to serious vulnerabilities. Take 30 seconds, and make sure you turn Bluetooth off when you’re out and about.

Wondering if you are missing more key ways to block hackers from getting into your network? Tech Rockstars will do an assessment of your security system and let you know if and where hackers could creep in and what to do about it. Get in touch at https://smpl.is/99cru.
