When it comes to women’s self-defense in 2022 we must take into account the new means of communication that can be an incredible source of information for malicious people and people who want to steal habits, images, etc. and use them to
Unfortunately, despite the possibilities related to privacy precisely to prevent strangers or unsyed people from being able to steal information many people and girls neglect this aspect that in the wrong hands can increase the danger conditions.
The social network has proved extraordinary in recent years to be the most suitable and convenient platform to make new friends, meetings and even relate to old friends and acquaintances, so much information changes or use this tool using even more than one and also spreading a lot of information about themselves and their habits.
I’m sorry to tell you, but the most frequent users of social media are maniacs and psychopaths, skilled manipulators who have an ever-new audience and dozens of identities at their disposal.
That’s why it’s important to be security-conscious when you sign up on any social media platform, especially dating sites.
Although running various social networking sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram,WhatsApp, Twitter,MySpace, and others, ensures that it protects users from online criminal elements, this is not enough if you don’t use precautions on how you use social media.
In the world of dating there are dozens of dating sites that do not always guarantee appropriate controls and where inside hides mentally ill, psychopaths, maniacs, scammers, blackmailers, etc. hidden under false guises.
You have to be careful about security if you don’t want to fall victim to fraudsters and “cybercriminals” becausethey always look forgullible people to defraud and today they have the advantage of being able to do it from home.
By “informatics” I mean not only those who use scams to steal your credit card information or personal logins but people who use the internet to know what you are doing, if you are at home, your habits, what you like, etc. and use this information for their purpose.
