Before you go online and start looking for dates, it is absolutely essential that you ensure the computer you use is 100% safe and is not vulnerable to hackers or virus attacks.
You should also take all the necessary precautions (especially if you’re on a public computer) to make sure no one else uses your online dating account.
It is important to ensure no one but you has access to your online dating profile as email addresses and passwords in the hands of the wrong person could even result in identity theft.
Follow some of these tips to ensure your computer is secure and less vulnerable to security threats.
