To protect your computers and devices against malware make sure you:

  • Run a full scan on all your computers and devices regularly
  • Set your computers and devices to automatically install security updates for your operating system and other apps
  • Remove or quarantine any malware detected on your computers and devices
  • Don’t click on any links if you’re not certain where they lead to
