In the present age everyone depends on technology. At least once per day someone uses a machine to help them accomplish their tasks. For example, imagine not using a cell phone for a whole day. These days, machines contain personal information or data about their owner. In most cases this isn’t an issue. However, with technology becoming more advanced day by day, there has become a reason to worry. People are able to illegally enter other people’s computers and steal information. Leading to the point that being able to protect one’s personal data is crucial. Learning how to safeguard one’s own information or data is important and it is also crucial to understand how hackers are able to steal data in order to prevent it.
