What is Spyware and How to Prevent It

Malware, Spyware, and viruses. These are terms that computer users have been fearful of since the early 90s. While spyware was never the threat that terrified users the most, it has recently surfaced as a genuine security concern for anyone who has an internet connection. Spyware can record your data, your keystrokes, log your credentials, spy on all of your activity, and share all of the information it records with third parties. Sometimes, the third parties don’t genuinely have malicious intent (like advertisers) but that doesn’t mean that attackers don’t use spyware to get access to your bank account or your online profiles. Here’s all you need to know about spyware and how to stay protected from it.
