Practice safe text

What kinds of “access doors” are open on your device, and which kind of viruses can pass through? Practically none, as long as you have activated a firewall and installed antivirus software.

Unless you take action, your computer, tablet or smartphone is defenceless in the face of internet danger. Anyone can use malware (viruses, worms, trojans, etc.) to view, manipulate and even delete your data. That’s why you should check that you have antivirus software installed and a firewall activated on your device.

There is also an interview with security expert Dominik Schupp you can read on this topic (in German).

Check the s-u-p-e-r.ch website and «eBanking – but secure!» (EBAS) (https://www.ebas.ch/en/) from 3 May onwards to discover the dangers you need to be aware of, and what simple steps you can take to protect yourself.
